Gary Harley – Preview – 4.11.23

Race 1 – Elders 3YO Class 1 & Maiden Plate 1500m
Genzano blitzed a Scone Maiden field last start and is extremely talented. The longer trip is ideal and
so is the long straight. She is up in class but is good enough.

Ritzytwenties will probably lead and he was rundown last race at Kembla.

Hard Pick won well at Hawkesbury.

quick. She has been placed in her only two starts on this track.

Willingale was narrowly beaten here last start.

Selections: 4 – Spiritchaser       2 – Duke of Bronte       8 – Willingale

Omar is consistent.

Selections: 3 – Forms Of Fear       10 – Off Da Hizzle       4 – Omar


Race 4 – Huxley Hill Benchmark 64 Handicap 1900m

last start. He is bred to stay so the step up to 1900m won’t be a problem.

Four O’clock Knock was unlikely last start.

The Hungarian is the clear runner.
