Into The Black Book – Gloucester Park


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

Friday 27th October 2017


“fought on gamely to run second after he crossed from gate six and faced the breeze. The Skye Bond-trained gelding, who won five Kiwi races, has shown plenty of ability since arriving in WA last year. Gloucester Park has been the venue for three of his six wins here. He has contested five races since a spell and looks ready to re-enter the city winners’ list.” – Ernie Manning

“Looks ready to win if he can avoid another smart horse like Our Zak Whitby. The field was running for second with that horse drawn well but Char Do Neigh stuck to his guns and was brave running a clear second from the breeze.” – Trent Orwin


“drew the outside of the front line in the race won by Mach Time. Restrained to the rear he took a trail on Condrieu when that horse started the three wide line 950m from home , five wide on the home bend Cut For An ace flooded down the outside to finish a head behind the winner – follow – probably won’t get the $37.90 available on Friday night though.” – Robbie Dewar


“finished a stylish second and is shaping to be competitive in the Inter Dominion Championship. He is 33rd in Inters rankings and a return to the winners’ list would virtually ensure he qualifies to start in heats of the series. Only the top 30 ranked horses will be eligible totackle heats. Bettor Reward, who won 11 of his first 19 races, is on a 10-run losing sequence. But he appears poised for victory.” – Ernie Manning

“settled in eighth spot before going three wide with 600m to go in the Manta Tiling Westbred Final (2130m). Flying home the son of Bettors Delight failed by a long neck to catch the winner and favourite Thereugo, in astute camp should win soon.” – Robbie Dewar


“The widest barrier on the front line against a field with plenty of depth was always going to be tough for Motu Premier. He made an early move to get outside of American Boy and finished a close-up second in 1:55.3 which is excellent time. Have something on him next start.” – Trent Orwin


“hasn’t won in his last 12 goes but that should change soon judging by his second on Friday night. Drifting out to $45.40 on the tote Maximum demand ran on strongly at the finish to indicate a victory is not far away.” – Robbie Dewar


“battled on tenaciously to finish second after setting the pace. The five-year-old looks near form that enabled him to win at five consecutive starts early this year. He was imported to WA after victories in three of his four New Zealand races. The gelding should soon make amends for having won only once in his past 10 appearances. Sure to be hard to beat if drawing favourably at his next start.” – Ernie Manning
