Gary Harley – Preview

Race 1. Prince of Merewether Class 1 Maiden Plate 2350m

Every effort turned in a career best performance on this track last start when runner up over this trip on June 26. He ran on strong from midfield and the winner was pretty smart.

Yak is a tough country stayer and has placed in his last 3 starts.

Mon Amore has been runner up in her last 3 starts but the longer trip is a query.

Race 2 Charlestown Square Maiden Handicap 1200m

Noble Flame went well enough on debut recently to win this race. She contested a strong 2 year old maiden and she finished fourth, 3 lengths from the winner.

The experience and longer trip will have her in good stead for this race.

Monster Bisque was disappointing on debut but has trialled well and Revivalist has a chance.

Race 3 Sharp Office Class 1 Handicap 900m

Dominant Lady put the writing on the wall with a fast finishing third place on the Kensington track last start. Her only win was on this track over this trip in December. She will give them a start and the long straight is a positive.

Agrum bolted in on debut at Gosford recently and has speed to burn.

Pacific Ocean also has speed and loves the short course.

Race 4 New Zealand Bloodstock 2 YO Maiden 1300m

Zentime led until well in the straight when placed at Canterbury first up on June 23. That race was on a heavy 8 and if the rain arrives, a wet track will be in this filly’s favour.

Costly failed on debut but his trials prior to that run were good.

Garmish also failed on debut but expect improvement.
