Into The Black Book – Gloucester Park


The OzRace Team comment on the ones to follow from the Fridays meeting at GLOUCESTER PARK

Friday 10th November 2017


“Bumping into the in-form Bettor Boa, Mary Catherine was forced to race outside of that mare and was game in defeat with a 4m margin on the line. The mile rate of 1:57.1 is good for the M0-M1 mares and they got home in 55.9 seconds. Mary Catherine will be winning soon.” – Trent Orwin


“got a soft run on the back of the stablemate and winner Sarah Goody when finishing second in the opening event. Look for a weak country penalty Friday night class race, should pay her way.” – Robbie Dewar


“came three-wide in final stages to run third, after being dropped back from barrier eight. The Justin Prentice-trained six-year-old, who was having his third start after a spell, should swiftly make amends for being a beaten favourite. He showed considerable quality in 11 wins from his first 19 races. The gelding has not won in his past 11 appearances, but he gives every indication that he could soon record another series of victories.” – Ernie Manning


“started at $68.80 when finishing second behind Better Boa on Friday night, was last  early and rattled home down the outside in a good performance, could pay to follow on an each way basis.” – Robbie Dewar


“Vultan Tin finished fourth in the American Boy and Motu Premier race. He flashed late and was taking rapid ground off the placegetters as he continues to establish himself as one of the most improved pacers in WA.” – Trent Orwin


“was having his first race for almost four months when second to Johnny Disco. The Gary Hall-trained Zach Maguire has won 14 races, including six at Gloucester Park. It would not surprise if the New Zealand-bred five-year-old came into calculations for carnival feature events. He won from Motu Premier, shortly before going for a spell in July. He is one to follow  over the next several weeks.” – Ernie Manning

“was having his first start since the end of July when finishing second to Johnny Disco. Settling midfield in the moving line the son Bettors Delight ran on nicely though he was never going to threaten the winner. In a powerful stable is sure to win his share of races this time in.” – Robbie Dewar


“finished a close second to American Boy after having little luck from gate seven .Forced to cover extra ground, Motu Premier then had to face the breeze. The Ross Olivieri-trained five-year-old, raced by leading owner Merv Butterworth, has an exceptional career record of 16 wins and 15 places from 37 starts. He seems certain to be prominent in the Inter Dominion Championship, judging by his tally of five wins, three seconds and a third in nine Gloucester Park races.” – Ernie Manning

“Another impressive performance from Ross Olivieri’s Motu Premier saw him run a half-head second behind American Boy who was able to find the front. Both horses are flying and the 1:54.8 mile rate backs up that claim.” – Trent Orwin
