Gary Harley – Preview- 22.04.21

Race 1- Simtrack 2YO Maiden Handicap 900m

This is a smart two-year-old race dominated by leading Sydney trainers.

The James Cummings colt Wheel is on debut after an impressive trial in which he was never off the bit.

Tillotson is also on debut on the back of three nice trials while Rocstar Boy was narrowly beaten in his only start at Canberra and he won a recent trial.

Selections:    5- Wheel       9 Tillotson      1- Rocstar Boy


Race 2 – Sage Painting Maiden Plate 1300m

Ovoid has good trial form, has barrier one and is a speedy colt. He led all the way when an easy Rosehill trial winner on March 29. He has had three trials in March and has trialled well in all three.

Tuscan Gaze was runner up at Warwick Farm second up recently and he was unlucky when placed here in October.

Maramoti caught the eye when a fast finishing third here last start.

Selections:    9- Ovid          5- Tuscan Gaze      3- Maramoti


Race 3 – The Prince of Merewether Maiden Handicap 1200m

Poignant has her hoof on the till after a close and luckless second on debut at Gosford on April 1. The filly was slow away and three-wide outside the lead on the turn before going down by half a length.

Alura raced well in strong company last prep and she resumes after an easy trial win.

Leave Me Be did not have luck in the straight recently at Gosford.

Selections:    2- Poignant              3- Alura         7- Leave Me Be


Race 4 – Sharp Electronics Group Prov & Ctry Maiden Handicap 1500m

All At Sea finished off well when placed first up at Wyong on April 8. She will appreciate the longer trip and the claim for Louise Day. The long straight is also an advantage as he raced in the second half of the field first up.

Borsalina will improve on the firmer track and Media Man has a place chance.

Selections: 4- All At Sea               3- Borsalina              9- Media Man

Race 5- OAS Technology Benchmark 64 Handicap 1880m

My Delight came from second last to win a 1550 metre Canterbury Maiden on April 7. That was only her second race start and the longer trip here is ideal. She will probably go forward from the wide barrier.

Prospero bolted in at Port Macquarie last start and has a 2kg claim and Rock The Bells is a winner on the track.

Selections: 6- My Delight             1- Prospero              8- Rock The Bells


Race 6- Hungerford Hill F&M Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Sophomore loves this track where she has two wins and a third from three starts. She was held up at the top of the straight when placed first up at Hawkesbury on April 5 and she has a good second up record.

Amy’s Shadow has good country form and she has won a Randwick Highway.

Spanish Pearl has had seven starts this prep and six placings.

Selections:    3- Sophomore         1- Amy’s Shadow               8- Spanish Pearl


Race 7- TAB Venue Mode CG&E Benchmark 64 Handicap 1400m

Locally trained Dalaalaat is well placed with a 2kg claim and barrier two. He won first up at Scone in January before finishing just over a length in subsequent starts at Doomben and Warwick Farm. He is crying out for this trip.

Adelaide’s Light bolted in with a Kembla Maiden first up and he was only beaten a half a lengthy by Duais on this track in December.

Texas Storm is a last start Taree winner and he was narrowly beaten at Rosehill in February.

Selections:    2- Dalaalaat            6- Adelaide’s Light            12- Texas Storm


Race 8 – Yarraman Park Conditional Benchmark 68 Handicap 1200m

Molllycoddle is a talented James Cummings trained filly resuming from a spell. In five starts from six she won three and placed in the other two. She had a quiet trial recently.

Time For Victory is in good form and Henschel can improve.

Selections:    5- Mollycoddle       9- Time For Victory             4- Henschel
