Gary Harley – Preview – 21.05.22

Race 1 – The Crown & Anchor Hotel 3yo & Up Maiden Plate 1400m

Adair has only had three starts and he was beaten half a length in a strong Newcastle Maiden in October. He is first up after two trials and the gelding was impressive in winning a recent Warwick Farm trial.

Villeins is a big threat after placing at Canterbury and Newcastle recently.

Just Like Lisa has been placed seven times and she went well first up.

Selections:    1- Adair         3- Villeins       7- Just Like Lisa


Race 2 – Happy 21st Piper & Seth Benchmark 68 1890m

Stellar Performer has been placed at her last two starts over similar trips at Canterbury and Newcastle. Two of her three wins have been at Newcastle and she loves a wet track. On March 19 the mare wasn’t far away in a Midway at Rosehill.

Whodat has the fine record at Newcastle of two wins and a second from three starts and he has good wet track form.

Orbital Express has won two from four here.

Selections:    3- Stellar Performer            1- Whodat    5- Orbital Express


Race 3 – Essentially Your Choice Pty Ltd 2yo Maiden 900m

There are ten unraced two-year-olds in this field. Agnodice wasn’t extended in a strong Rosehill trial on a soft 7 recently. The filly is on debut and has barrier one.

Esprit Lucand is another first starter who won a Hawkesbury trial on a heavy 8 track. She is pretty quick.

Local 2yo Sir Tom looked good in winning a recent Beaumont track trial.

Selections:    6- Agndice   7- Esprit Lucand      5- Sir Tom


Race 4- QMF Construction Pty Ltd 2yo Maiden 900m

Nonshalaant has speed to burn, and his trial form is good. The colt sat outside the leader when he came away to win a recent Warwick Farm trial. He had trialled okay way back in December.

Flying Birds is also speedy and wasn’t far away in a hot Hawkesbury trial.

Inequality was narrowly beaten here in November.

Selections:    3- Nonshalaant       1- Flying Birds           2- Inequality


Race 5 – Morrissey Law & Advisory Class 1 & Maiden Plate 2350m

Thailand is knocking on the door after a gutsy runner up performance on this track last start. He led from the ‘400’ and toughed it out over the gruelling 2300m, only to be run down late.

Love Rules broke through for an easy win at Wyong recently and she is much improved.

Overthink was placed in a similar race last start.

Selections:    2- Thailand   7- Love Rules           1- Overthink


Race 6 – Lambourne Partners Wealth Benchmark 64 Handicap 1300m

Decisive Move is a front runner resuming from a positive barrier. At the end of last preparation, she led all the way to win over 1400m at Warwick Farm before placing on the same track prior to a spell.

Angelical was unbeaten in three starts last preparation and has trialled okay.

Notions has won two of five starts and she has a chance.

Selections:    5- Decisive   1- Angelical             3- Notions


Race 7 – The FCS Benchmark 64 Handicap 1300m

Soarhi was an easy winner on debut on this track in October. Prior to a spell he was placed at Sandown and Moonee Valley. He won a recent Rosehill trial on a heavy track.

Spring Break has fair Victorian form and he won a recent Beaumont trial.

Tick Tock Boom went well enough first up to be a chance.

Selections:    5- Soarhi        2- Spring Break        6- Tick Tock Boom


Race 8 – Baker Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Benchmark 64 Handicap 1600m


Harvey’s Way’s close third on this track last start was an eye catcher. He came form a long way back when beaten half a length. He has had five starts on his home track for a win and three placings. He has drawn well on Saturday.

Star Sparks had good form in the Spring and Tinnie Winnie has a good record.

Selections:    2- Harvey’s Way     3- Star Sparks           6- Tinnie Winnie
