Gary Harley – Preview – 16.10.21

Race 1 – PFD Foods Class 1 & Maiden Plate 2300m

Outlook is ready to win after two runs from a spell. She came from well back when runner up finishing 1.7 lengths from the winner over 1250 metres at Goulburn last start. She was narrowly beaten on this track in May and the dams sire Galileo is one of the world’s best sires of stayers.

Fluttershy races well here and Rockamo had no luck last start.

Selections: 3- Outlook       2- Fluttershy              1- Rockamo


Race 2 – Rarity Wholesale Maiden Plate 900m

Sachello is unbeaten in two recent Warwick Farm trials and she is quick. She led all the way in the most recent trial and bolted in. The short course is ideal and she has a perfect draw.

Paradise Island resumes after a nice trial win at Muswellbrook.

Lessing has not raced since November but she was placed in her past three starts.

Selections:    10- Sachello             9- Paradise Island              2- Lessing


Race 3 – The Prince Of Merewether Maiden Handicap 1200m

Soarhi is on debut after three recent trials. He was narrowly beaten in a Rosehill trial in October but he could have won if Tommy Berry had let him go. He has drawn okay and has the speed to take up a position.

Unwritten had no luck when narrowly beaten at Wyong last start.

Mirra View went good first up and has a nice barrier.

Selections: 4- Soarhi          5- Unwritten             7- Mirra View


Race 4 – OAS Technology Maiden Handicap 1300m

Prize Draw should have finished closer when fifth at Gosford on debut nine days ago. She was held up in the straight and she will appreciate the longer trip and the big track.

Smirk came from a long way back when she won a recent Warwick Farm trial.

Starmoss has had two runs this prep and could finish amongst the placegetters.

Selections:    8- Prize Draw           5- Smirk          6- Starmoss


Race 5- Sharp Office Conditional Benchmark 68 Handicap 1200m

Pure Fuego had no luck when badly held up in the Bathurst Panorama three weeks ago. He had good form last prep and he was narrowly beaten in his only start on this track in February.

Mr Polar continues to race well.

Selections:    3- Pure Fuego         4- Harlem Luya       2- Mr Polar


Race 6 – Yarraman Park benchmark 64 Handicap 1600m

All Machiavellian failed in the Group 3 Gloaming last start but his form prior was first class. He was placed at Kembla first up in August before two wins at Newcastle and Goulburn. Aaron Bullock rides the gelding.

Scorched Land hasn’t been far away in both starts this prep and he has a 3kg claim.

Stellar Performer was an easy winner on this track two weeks ago.

Selections:    4- All Machiavellian          1- Scorched Land              6- Stella Performer


Race 7 – The Joanne McLean Memorial Class 1 Handicap 1250m

Ka Bling looked good in winning at Wyong on September 30. He was placed at Hawkesbury in his only other start on September 9. He will appreciate the big track and his win was on a soft track.

Seven Twenty bolted in at Goulburn in her first Australian start and she has trialled since.

Sur La Mer races well on this track.

Selections: 8- Ka Bling       9- Seven Twenty     7- Sur La Mer


Race 8 – Australian Bloodstock Benchmark 64 Handicap 900m

Satin Ribbons is a fast filly and she resumes on the back of an impressive Randwick trial win. She has only had two starts and was successful on this track before a spell. She has drawn well and her win was on a soft track.

Sliders won the Max Lees Classic on this track and she can improve on recent form.

Quick Tempo is unbeaten in two starts.

Selections: 11- Satin Ribbons      7- Sliders        9- Quick Tempo
