Saturday 1st October 2022.
Flemington Race 7 Turnbull Stakes 2000m.
Duais won the Australian Cup at this track & distance, third up here and is expected to go well but wonder if she might be better placed at WFA. Profondo has a win at this trip and will appreciate getting back to a firmer track. Great House placed when resuming and usually runs well at this track. Inspirational Girl won the Blamey at this track, rising in distance here but is a G1 winner in WA. Chapada has placed at this t/d 3 times, gets a weight advantage here and could be value. Alegron returned to the winners stall at Randwick and won here as a 3yo. Young Werther was finishing on late first up and will be fitter, ran 2nd in this last year. Gold Trip has placed in both runs since resuming, this is the lightest weight he’s ever carried.
Summary: Gold Trip is well placed, including Young Werther & Alegron with Chapada best each-way but have to go wide if you’re looking at the exotics.
Randwick Race 8 TAB Epsom 1600m.
Easy to make a case for last start winner Top Ranked, should go well again. Ellsberg led and just faded last start at Rosehill, better suited this track and will be fitter. Nimalee hasn’t been far away in last 2 runs, at least a place chance. Icebath ran 2nd in the George Main, won the Cantala at Flemington last year and may be on a similar path. Hinged has only 51.5kg to carry this time, looks suited here. Cross Talk is another likely leader who could hang on for a place at the finish.
Summary: Hinged might be hard to catch with the light weight but hasn’t been missed in early betting, next best Top Ranked, Icebath & Cross Talk but there are many more place chances including Ellsberg & Nimalee.
Randwick Race 9 Furphy Metropolitan 2400m.
Stockman is back to his winning range and although top kg not badly treated. Le Don De Vie won the Caloundra Cup but this is harder. Durston won the Newcastle Cup in style, big step up in grade but same can be said for most. Grove Ferry is another last start winner but like to race on pace so the wide barrier is a slight concern. Hameron is yet to miss a place in 7 starts, well in here with the bottom weight and jockey has a win with him.
Summary: hard to knock Durston in winning form, Stockman next best on class. Next best Hameron, Le Don & Grove Ferry.
