Upcoming runners: 21 and 23 April

Friday 21 April 2017
 

DAVINCI
Race 5: Class 4 - 1700m

Horse no: 6
Time: 8.20 PM
Jockey: G BOSS (58kg)

Mastercraftsman (IRE) x All Night Party (NZ) 5yo gelding. He remains in good form; he's nice and fit and in great condition. He's drawn barrier 9 but James is not too worried, he'll be ridden quietly wherever he's happy travelling. Hopefully he'll get into some clear room in the home straight and finish strongly.


 

Sunday 23 April 2017
 

JULIUS CAESAR
Race : Maiden - 1200m
Horse no: 1
Time: 1.10 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (57kg)

I Am Invincible (AUS) x Rivers Secret (AUS) 3yo colt. Very happy with his current condition, he's working well and looks good. He's drawn barrier 10 which is a little awkward; there looks to be good speed in the race. He'll need to begin well and come across just behind the main speed. If he's three wide with cover it's a decent spot to be in on the polytrack at the moment. There are a few horses in decent form in this race, but hopefully he'll be right there in the finish.

 

RUSTY BROWN
Race 7: Class 4 - 1200m
Horse no: 4
Time: 3.45 PM
Jockey: B VORSTER (56.5kg)

Darci Brahma (NZ) x Lancango (AUS) 6yo gelding. He's maintained his form well and looks great. We've drawn an inside barrier in barrier 2 and we may have to ride him a little closer to the speed - on paper there doesn't seem to be much speed to the race which isn't that great for him - he seems to prefer an outside barrier and run down the leaders from the back. If he can get a nice run in and some clear room on the home straight he should be a nice chance.

 

GRAND CROSS
Race 9: Open Benchmark 83 - 1200m

Horse no: 4
Time: 4.50 PM
Jockey: V DURIC (56kg)

Fastnet Rock (AUS) x Defiant Dame (AUS) 4yo gelding. He remains in good form and is working well on the training track. He'll jump from a tricky barrier 10 on Sunday. On paper there looks to be good speed on the inside; we'll get Vlad to ride him positively and into a forward position, try to get in behind the main speed and let Vlad ride his race from there. It's a strong race - a full field with horses in good form in - it but hopefully he can run well and pick up some prizemoney.
