Form Analysis: Redcliffe Dec 2

RACE ONE

TED WEST (9)
has been around the money in recent starts and looks to have struck a race here where he can cash-in. Taken back from gate 7 last start at AP he found the line strongly when 5.5m from the winner EVERYTHING in some slick sections. This looks available for the taking.

COURAGEOUS LEO (6) returns from a spell and will step out as a 4YO for the first time. Last seen off the 2nd line when tracking home well to be 6m from the IDES OF MARCH, he has the wide gate to negotiate here. With two solid trials to open the pipes in readiness, he can be in the mix.

DOLLARBILL (3) has worked his way back into form with a top-three at his past three. A Marburg winner 2 starts back from the 2nd line, his latest effort was good from gate 5. He is in the mix.

READILY (7) will need plenty of luck in the run to spot an opening but if the gaps come he can be in the fight. A passing lane winner here 4 starts back, he has met some handy types since.

SELECTIONS: TED WEST (9), COURAGEOUS LEO (6), DOLLARBILL (3), READILY (7)
SUGGESTED BET: TED WEST (9) to win

RACE TWO

WILLSINTOWN (4) has been in the money at 10 of 12 outings this season with the latest when 3rd on Wed night after leading them deep into the stretch. That followed a nice effort when hitting the line strongly after being buried 3 back along the inside. With good early speed and options he can score.


MAC SWEET (1) looked to lead them all the way at Armidale last start from gate 1. Setting a solid tempo she couldn’t see it out when 7m from the winner. From the gate she can get the perfect trip and be ready to look for the gaps.

LIVING GRAND (9) should appreciate this class and despite a tough gate can put himself right in this. Working hard in the breeze last start from gate 5 he grabbed the silver and won’t be far away.

PROJECTILE (10) has been runner-up at his past two starts, the latest when charging late to go under by a head after being buried on the pegs. With the right cart home he can feature.

RACE THREE

HERES MY NUMBER (2) will strip fitter from his last run when resuming from a spell without a trial. Settling in the running line from the 2nd line they were a bit sharp for him. A big winner from the 2nd line at his last start of his previous prep, he has the speed to find the pegs here and look to dictate.

DIAMONDSFROMHEAVEN (8) pressed on to find the front from gate 3 at Marburg last start and once in control packed too many guns to score a 6m victory in a career best win rate. That followed a tough first-up 3rd and with the right trail through early will be right in the fight.

IM TOOT (10) led them up last start over the 2040m and after setting a steady tempo faded out. A tough 3rd here 3 starts back, he has no favours from this alley but can still put himself in the mix.

ALWAYS A JEWEL (1) has placed at her past 4 in succession and with the benefit of a cosy trip can look to extend that. A tough 2nd from the breeze 3 starts back she is a must include in the exotics.

SELECTIONS: HERES MY NUMBER (2), DIAMONDSFROMHEAVEN (8), IM TOOT (10), ALWAYS A JEWEL (1)
SUGGESTED BET: HERES MY NUMBER (2) to win

RACE FOUR

OUR DIAMOND EDITON (10)
will be tightened from her latest run when 2nd up from a break. Doing some early work in finding the pegs over the 1850m trip once she assumed control she fought hard in a nice closing 800m to score. The gate hurts but she can get around and be in for the fight.

ARCH EMPRESS (1) has been doing a few things wrong in recent starts and last start was banished to the trials as a result of her errors. Getting through that trial nicely she comes up with the perfect alley and with the options can turn her fortunes around.

PACIFIC COIN (9) wasn’t suited last start when forced to go back from gate 4 at Marburg and too far out of the ground didn’t feature. He will need some luck but can look to find the podium in this.

TASCOTT LADY (2) chased gamely last start behind DIAMONDSFROMHEAVEN after starting from outside the front line. With good early speed she can look to be first to the pegs which will suit.

RACE FIVE

FEELINGFORAMIRACLE (9) has started twice since resuming from a spell with the latest run full of merit after making an error. Looking to make a run at the 350m he went off stride and threw his chances away yet really attacked the line strongly. With even luck in transit he can bounce back.

OMINOUS FLYER (4) will strip fitter from his latest run when returning from a spell at Marburg. Wide from gate 3 when trying to find position he found the running line and then made a strong challenge to get within a neck of the winner. His Redcliffe record is excellent and he will go close.

RISKY BUZINESS (1) was crossed from gate 1 at Marburg last time out and then when making a challenge went within a neck of the winner SPRINGFIELD SPIRIT. With the early options he can place.

BLUE EYED CREATION (3) hit the line in good order to grab the silver at Marburg 4 starts back and then 2 starts back was 3rd behind the smart ONE OFF. He won’t be too far away here.

SUGGESTED BET: FEELINGFORAMIRACLE (9) to win

RACE SIX

TOO GOOD FOR YOU (4)
has placed at 4 of his past 5 appearances when racing on the north-western NSW circuit. Working hard in the run off the 2nd line at Tamworth last start there was plenty of merit in the run which followed a tough neck 2nd. He can press the issue early and looks hard to beat.

MYBELLA ROSE (10) is showing good improvement and has now been runner-up in 4 of her past 5 starts. The latest effort from gate 1 saw her in the pocket trail and making a closing shot to get within 1.5m of the winner FORTES IN FIDES. The gate dents her chances but she has claims.

NON PASSARE (2) wasn’t suited when facing the breeze at his past 2 starts that has seen him fade out. From this gate he can look to find the pegs and taking control will be gripping on.

EVERY THINGS ROSEY (1) is only sparingly raced with her last effort a tidy run when buried away after snagging back from gate 3 to find position. With the cosy trip from the ace she has place hopes.

SELECTIONS: TOO GOOD FOR YOU (4), MYBELLA ROSE (10), NON PASSARE (2), EVERY THINGS ROSEY (1)
SUGGESTED BET: TOO GOOD FOR YOU (4) to win

RACE SEVEN

GRINYDONTCHA (9) started fav last time out at Marburg from gate 2 and was sent to the front. After a pedestrian opening half she looked to amp the tempo but was grabbed late and had to settle for the silver. The gate is tricky but she might be just going a little better in an open race.

SWAFFHAM WATER (4) will be tightened from her latest start when 1st up off a break. Luckless from the widest gate at Marburg she was snagged back and worked home in good order from well back. With good early speed she can have an early look and gets her chance.

ROYAL TAZ (10) found his race when able to lead all the way from the ace at Marburg 3 starts back. Banished to the outside from his latest run he can challenge with even luck in this line-up.

SANTASTIC PRINCESS (5) will be 2nd up from a break after returning over the 1780m trip. Looking to take them all the way she was grabbed late when 2m off the winner. The gate hurts but she can place.

SELECTIONS: GRINYDONTCHA (9), SWAFFHAM WATER (4), ROYAL TAZ (10), SANTASTIC PRINCESS (5)
SUGGESTED BET: GRINYDONTCHA (9) to win

RACE EIGHT

MISS INVASION (4)
had been runner-up in 4 successive runs leading in to her last start when sent to the post as fav. Making an error in the run her chances ended. There is ability there that has been let down at her past 2 when making errors and if able to put it all together here she can capitalise.

NO TRANSACTIONS (6) threw his hopes away last start when striking trouble and trailing the field home at Marburg. Starting from 30m here on the triangle 2 starts back he weaved a passage to grab the bronze behind HONEY PLEASE. If he can bring his manners he is a big danger in this.

NORAHS FLING (5) started from 10m last start at Marburg and returned a tidy effort when tucked away on the pegs. Her run 4 back was a nice effort and with the right run in transit has place hopes.

MONORAIL (9) has been coming off big handicaps in these type of races but has been doing a good job without really threatening. He faces a tough task again but can chime into the exotics.

RACE NINE

DEADSET COURAGEOUS (8)
had been knocking on the door after placings in 3 of his 4 previous starts and cashed-in last start when breaking the maiden at Tamworth. His run for the silver at Armidale 3 starts back was a tough effort and despite a tricky gate he can look to make the most of his chances.

FUTURE FUN (6) resumes from a break to start his 4YO term and will come into this without a trial. His past 3 starts have all been behind some stronger types than he meets here with his latest AP run a handy effort behind HAPPY FEELINGS. He will take benefit from the run and has rough hopes.

MY ULTIMATE JOE (10) resumes from a break and has been to the trials 3 times in readiness for the return. The latest of those was pleasing and despite the 2nd line he has claims in an open contest.

HOLDINGNO CURRENCY (7) will need plenty of luck from this gate to sight an opening but if it does appear he has place hopes. Placed at his past 2 he will be probing for the opening.
