Gary Harley – Preview 26.05.20

Race 1 – NBN News Class 1 Handicap 1985m

Small field but five real chances. Soul Purpose is well weighted with only 54 kilograms on her back after Tom Sherry’s claim. The filly broke through for her first win at Hawkesbury over 1800 metres last start on May 5. She was placed in her two previous starts and she will have the last crack at them.

All Things won well on this track last start and Lando Bay is racing well.


6- Soul Purpose

1 – All Things

2 – Lando Bay

Race 2 – Sage Painting Class 1 Handicap 1500m

Faretti is clearly the class runner and he has a soft draw. He bolted in with a Kensington Maiden in October and then went down by a length and a half in the Listed Brian Crowley at Randwick. He was only beaten a length first up at Warwick Farm on May 13.

Divine Eleven won well at Kembla last start and Srini hit the line from back to win at Hawkesbury second up.


1 – Faretti

3 – Divine Eleven

4 – Srini

Race 3- Hunter Valley Premium Meats Maiden Plate 1500m

Rules Don’t Apply resumes after a good first prep which she was placed in three of her four starts. She was narrowly beaten in two of those starts at Canterbury and Warwick Farm. The filly won a recent trial in good style.

Costa Zou was nosed out on this track on May 9 and he was unlucky.

Space Is Deep has been placed in three of four and she has a chance.


8 – Rules Don’t Apply

2 – Costa Zou

9- Space Is Deep

Race 4 – Amalgamated Cash Services Maiden Plate 900m

Meadow Land is a smart colt resuming and he will be an odds-on favourite. He was heavily backed when beaten two lengths in a classy two-year-old event at Gosford in February. His recent trials have been impressive and he has the rails barrier.

Coat Of Arms was never on the track when beaten two lengths on debut and he should run well.

Zouspectre trialled nicely recently.


9 – Meadow Land

12 – Coat Of Arms

4 – Zouspectre

Race 5 – Westfield Kotara Maiden Handicap 1300m

Brook Hill was placed in his only start at this track on May 9 when beaten 1¾ lengths in a strong maiden. He ran on strong and this race is 100 metres further. He has an inside draw and should be fitter.

Dulcero resumes on the bac of a quiet trial.

Past Tense is first up and he raced okay in town last prep.


1 – Brook Hill

7 – Dulcero

3 – Past Tense

Race 6 – Easy Payroll Global Class 2 Handicap 1200m

Arthur In Charge has been gelded since his last run and he has had two recent trials. He closed off nicely in a recent Randwick trial before a spell.

Crimlet never got on the track first up and she won second up last prep.

Rifles won by a big space at Wyong two starts back before a placing on that track.


2 – Arthur In Charge

4 – Crimlet

8 – Rifles

Race 7 – Prime 7 Conditional Benchmark 70 1400m

Reiby’s Regent had no luck before an all the way Wyong win last start. He was narrowly beaten on this track when near last on the turn two starts back. If the track is soft that won’t be a problem.

Whispered returned to form with a gallant second on this track two starts back.

Derby Star was unlucky last start at Randwick.


7 – Reiby’s Regent

2 – Whispered

12 – Derby Star
