Gary Harley – Preview – 10.06.23

Race 1 – Kalan’s Memorial Maiden Plate 900m

Misty Legend is an odds-on favourite after two recent trial wins at Randwick and Rosehill. The colt was only beaten 2 lengths in a strong 2yo Maiden on the Kensington track in February.

Exolent Choice is on debut after an easy trial win and Boomsita had good Queensland form earlier this year.

Selections:        8- Misty Legend            1- Exolent Choice         3- Boomsita


Race 2 – Independent Mobility & Rehab F&M Maiden Plate 1400m

Turbo Charged was a close third on this track last start after a slow start and laying in. She was placed at Wyong first up and she draws perfectly.

Hot Sauce wasn’t far away at Wyong last start, and she was twice placed on the Sunshine Coast track last year.

Outcast Girl has a place chance.

Selections:        7- Turbo Charged                    4- Hot Sauce               8- Outcast Girl


Race 3 – Lisa Steel Memorial Midway 2YO Maiden Handicap 1200m

Determined Mink was placed in a quality 2yo on this track on May 20. She drifted back over the short course and finished strongly. The longer trip is a bonus.

Balmierro made ground after a slow start on debut here recently.

Private Legacy has had numerous trials and is in a good stable.

Selections:        7- Determined Mink                1- Balmierro                 4- Private Legacy


Race 4- Ocean & Lakes Trade Services Class 1 Handicap 1200m

Announcing has only had three starts for a win and a second at Gosford earlier this year. His two recent trials have been good enough and he hit the line hard both times. Promising apprentice Molly  Bourke will claim 3 kilograms.

Baroque Road was placed at Warwick Farm first up after having no room until late.

Lease is quick and is trialing well.

Selections:        5- Announcing 2- Baroque Road                      1- Lease


Race 5 – Shane Wilson Painting Provincial Benchmark 68 Handicap 1600m

Super is a track specialist and although he rises in class will be hard to beat. He has won seven races at Newcastle and Bullock rides him again.

Mydeel has a big weight, but he is a tough miler and should run well here.

Azarmin is capable of running well.

Selections:       4- Super           1- Mydeel                     5- Azarmin


Race 6 – Buildingwise Construction CG&E Maiden Plate 1400m

Mogwai is one of the best of the day after an eye-catching placing in a good city race last start. He has a lovely barrier and is well weighted under the scale. He will like the long straight.

Louisville has been placed in all four starts and is a big threat.

Asva is close to a win.

Selections:        12- Mogwai                 8- Louisville                  2- Asva


Race 7 – Make Me Up Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Kokoshnik has had four starts for a win and three seconds, and she draws well. She led all the way to win at Goulburn last start, and first up she just missed.

Zip On By is a last Kembla winner and Gendarmerie was claimed late last start.

Selections:        8- Kokoshnik                10- Zip On By              2- Gendarmerie


Race 8 – Seed people Consulting CG&E Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Little Beginnings is up in class after an easy Gunnedah win last start. He has had seven starts for two wins and three seconds and was narrowly beaten at Newcastle three starts back.

Master Right has been placed in two Newcastle starts and Mediaro has a chance.

Selections:        4- Little Beginnings                   6- Master Right                         7- Mediaro
