Into The Black Book – Gloucester Park


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

Friday 20th October 2017


“put up a strong performance to finish second behind Skippy Rascal after breezing, only beaten by just over  a length – could shine in slightly weaker field – follow.” – Robbie Dewar


“looks ready to break through for his first WA win after having recorded Gloucester Park seconds in three consecutive appearances. He went to the line strongly after starting from barrier 10 on Friday night. The New Zealand import impressed when winning in NSW at four successive starts in 2016. His WA career was launched this year and he has raced here four times. He will pay to follow in minor races.” – Ernie Manning


“charged home from a rearward position and finished second in his 12-horse field. The gelding, unplaced at his previous three starts, raced for the first time in four weeks on Friday night and he probably benefited from having been freshened. Vultan Tin impressed last June, when he finished fourth in the Winter Cup and was a Past Presidents’ Cup runner-up. Now ranked 30th for the Inter Dominion Championship.” – Ernie Manning

“put up the run of the night outside the winning brigade when he sizzled home to finish just over three lengths behind Sokys Bigbullett in a 2130m assignment. Drew barrier 9 and was restrained to the rear and had no horse behind him on the home bend when rattling home to run second. It was a massive performance, draws an alley sure to be prominent.” – Robbie Dewar


“finished fourth after leading in the Mount Eden Sprint and is sure to improve on the performance produced in his first race for five months. He is eighth in Inters rankings and has proved his class.  The horse won a Victorian Derby and New Zealand’s Great Northern Derby. Placings in the Hunter Cup, Kilmore Cup and Len Smith Mile followed. He has been only lightly-raced in WA, but it now looks all systems go for his Inters campaign.” – Ernie Manning


“galloped out in Friday night’s standing start race losing 15-20m in the process. Settled at the rear of the field and only had three behind him turning for home and rattled home in the straight to be beaten by Tommy Be Good by 2m. Did win an Easter Cup from a stand in April this year so obviously has a touch of class about him. Remains out of the draw in stands but don’t let that worry your assessment of his chances.” – Robbie Dewar
