Cessnock Preview- 30.07.19

Race 1- Hungerford Hill Wines- Class 1 & Maiden Plate 2125m

Lucitor should break through after a close second on this track last meeting. He has been placed in three of his four starts and he will race on the pace. Don’t expect any fancy odds but a winner is a winner.

Arlington Magic is up from the South Coast and she has placed twice at Wyong and Goulburn this prep.

Classicman could fill a place on his home track


5- Lucitor

7- Arlington Magic

1- Classicman

Race 2- Prime Seven- Class 3 Handicap 1150m

Venture Capital had no luck when narrowly beaten at Scone on July 12. She pulled hard mid race before receiving a severe check at the 500. The mare has travelled nicely since the win and she has a lovely draw.

Georgia Hit is in good form with recent wins at Goulburn and Kembla. She has drawn well and Buckley rides.

She’s’ My Girl has won her past two starts at Cessnock and Scone and will run well.


2- Venture Capital

3- Georgia Hit

5- She’s My Girl

Race 3- Senpos- Class 2 Handicap 1570m

Sir Winkle has a good record and he is a winner on the track. The Kiwi bred three-year-old has started four times for two wins and two seconds. He was an easy Scone winner recently and he will come out of the rail’s barrier.

Commander Bell was unlucky when a closing second on this track last start. He has drawn well and will run on strong.

Myboycolly was never on the track at Taree after a brilliant first up win at Muswellbrook


1- Sir Winkle

3- Commander Bell

Race 4- Reward Hospitality- Benchmark 58 Handicap 900m

Mon Petite Fille is a short course flyer in career best form. She led all the way on this track over this distance two weeks ago. Two starts back the mare was nosed out by Engadine at Muswellbrook. The winner and third place getter have both won since at Scone.

Princess Snowy sat outside Mon Petite Fille last start at Cessnock and only went down by half a length

Miss Gigi was slow away before flashing home to be beaten half a length by Mon Petite Fille at Cessnock last start.

Race 5- Yarraman Park Maiden Plate 900m

Red Light Dancer has been knocking on the door and this is a winnable race for the two-year-old filly. She is pretty quick and has been placed at Cessnock and Muswellbrook recently. She drops in class after finishing on the placegetters heels in a much stronger race at Newcastle last start.

Sparkling Rose was narrowly beaten at Newcastle last start and she will run well.

Gottabe Red had solid form last prep and forget her first up run when she missed the start by 3 lengths.


12- Red Light Dancer

6- Sparkling Rose

3- Gottabe Red

Race 6- Jennings Print Benchmark 58 Handicap 1350m

Equiseta put the writing on the wall with a fighting second at Cessnock two weeks ago. She is an on pacer and at her top now after two runs from a spell.

Delchuzy missed the start first up at Scone and she did well to finish within 1 ½ lengths of the winner.

Nathan Road led to the 200 when beaten 3 lengths in a much stronger race at Newcastle three weeks ago.

4- Equiseta

2- Delchuzy

6- Nathan Road

Race 7- Happy Retirement Pud Davies Maiden Handicap 1350m

Cést La Vie is well placed and may attempt an all the way win. the front running filly was travelling sweetly in front at Goulburn last start before running off the track before the home turn. She has since won a Rosehill trail without being pressured.

Hashtag Viking was narrowly beaten last stat at Taree, and he wasn’t far away at Newcastle two starts back.

Amplified can improve in this field.
