Gary Harley – Members Preview- 29.02.20

Race 1- Newcastle Master Builders Apprentices 2YO Maiden plate 900m

Snitzari is a promising filly well placed over the short course. She debuted when three-wide throughout in the listed Lonhro Plate two weeks ago. She wound up in fifth place and that is good form for this race.

Bastaki is very fast and is a threat, while Tempel One won a recent trial.


6- Snitzari

4 – Bastaki

3- Tempel One

Race 2- All Steel Sheds & Construction Class 2 Handicap 900m  

Lesage is a Godolphin filly with genuine speed. She went down narrowly in a Flemington 2YO event down the straight in June. She resumed after a nice trial and she has led in three of her four starts. Calipari has good form on this track and has speed to burn.

Invincible Kiss has two wins and six placings from her last two starts.


2- Lesage

1 – Calipari

3- Invincible Kiss

Race 3- JPM Plastering Maiden Plate 1200m

Obscene was a strong finishing third first up at Gosford two weeks back. She raced well in two starts on this track during the winter and she has the rails barrier on Saturday.

Stablemate Brabham has won two Randwick trials this month and is ready to fire on debut.

Hardedge was heavily backed when runner up on debut at Gosford recently.


11- Obscene

2 – Brabham

4- Hardedge

Race 4- Buildcert Class 2 Handicap 1600m

Get The Idea is unbeaten in two starts at Kembla and Newcastle. He has come from midfield over 1300m and 1500m and he goes to 1600m here. He will have a nice trail from the rails barrier.

Sciconic was placed here last start and he is fitter now.

Opinions has a place chance.


1 – Get The Idea

2 – Sciconic

7 – Opinions

Race 5- MBA NSW Maiden Handicap 1500m

Unamerican has had two starts and is ready to win. He was beaten less than three lengths in a Canterbury Maiden on debut and he was a solid second over 1400m on this track two weeks ago. The 1500 meters is ideal, and he will go forward.

Affogato needed the run when runner up at Gosford recently.

Startalk has a place chance.


1 – Unamerican

3 – Affogato

10 – Startalk

Race 6- SB Glass & Glazing Class 1 Handicap 1200m

Warfare is ready to win third up from a spell. He ran on strong when runner up at Gosford last start and he will appreciate the spacious track.

Carte Blanche led all the way to win at Gosford last start and he has a chance.

Mandirigma can improve from the rails barrier.


1 – Warfare

8 – Carte Blanche

6 – Mandirigma

Race 7- Harvey Norman Commercial Division Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Cafe Royal is unbeaten in three starts and she is destined for bigger things. After two country wins, she went to Gosford and won handsomely. This is her first run at 1400m but that won’t be a problem.

Classic Gaming has won two from three this prep and he will be hard to beat.

Game Of Thorns could sprint well fresh.


6 – Cafe Royal

2 – Classic Gaming

1 – Game Of Thorns

Race 8- Polytrack provincial Championships Qualifier 1400m

Occupy races best when fresh and he hasn’t raced since January. The 1400m is as short a trip as he wants but he will be hard to hold out down the long straight.

Stablemate Stella Sea Sun has a good record particularly when fresh and she hasn’t started since January.

Moana Jewel can run well.


3 – Occupy

5 – Stella Sea Sun

13 – Moana Jewel
