Newcastle Preview-Sunday 18.11.18

Race 1- Sharp Electrical Group Class 2- 900m

The unbeaten New Zealand bred filly Kedah will be at short odds and it is hard to go past her. First up from a spell, Kedah careered away in the straight to easily win a Class 2 on this track on November 3.

This is a much stronger field, but Kedah is pretty good.

Screen Shot led all the way to win a Kembla Maiden in June and he trialled nicely at Randwick recently.

Inwithachance led all the way to win a Maiden here last start.

Race 2- Hungerford Hill Maiden 900m

Can I Rock was well backed when a close third on this track last weekend. She led in that race and she was run down late. The filly has a soft draw and Mitchell Bell has the mount.

Enchanted Princess is on debut after a recent Gosford trial win. she led at a good tempo in the 800-metre trial and went to the line strong.

Dynasty Di was only beaten a length at Muswellbrook last start after racing greenly.

Race 3- The Junction Hotel Class 1 & Maiden Plate 1880m

Scarlet Dream was very impressive in her second race start at Kembla on Melbourne Cup day. She was wide, no cover and after racing to the lead at the 150, she raced away to win easily. The step up from 1600 to 1880 should not be a problem. Robbie Dolan will claim 2 kilograms.

Captains Legend has been runner up in his past two starts on this track and is knocking on the door.

Tempers Flare was on the speed all the way when second at Gosford last start.


8- Scarlet Dream

Race 4- Nationwide Super- Metro & Prov Maiden Plate 1400m

City Of Loves first up run on this track two weeks back was an eye catcher. She was slow out and held up at the top of the straight before storming home to go down by half a length. She will be fitter second up and she has drawn the rails barrier.

Southern Romance finished just ahead of City Of Love last start and she will be hard to beat.

Loved One disappointed when an odds on favourite here last week but is better than that run.


6- City Of Love

11- Southern Romance

10- Loved One

Race 5- Coastline Pools & Spas Maiden Plate 1200m

Lucky Louie is well weighted under the set weight conditions and Corey Brown rides. She was a close second first up at Gosford recently and this mare raced in Group 1 and 2 races in Melbourne last spring

Mimic can improve on her unplaced first up run here two weeks back. The good 3 track last Saturday may have been a bit firm for Mimic.

River Bird has solid form to her credit


10- Lucky Louie

12- Mimic

13- River Bird

Race 6- Mantech Bradnell Memorial Maiden 1600m

Proven Class is well placed here in her third race start. The filly was beaten two lengths on debut at Warwick Farm on October 24. Second up she was beaten a neck at Hawksbury after racing on the speed.

Borazon was placed here in August and he was kept up to the mark with a recent quiet trial.

Ocean Dash has been crying out for a 1600.


5- Proven Class

Race 7- Sky Racing Spring Provincial Series Heat 4- Class 5 Plate 1500m

Kris Lees has four of the nine runners. However, the opposition is strong. Chalmers has a good second up record and he made ground first up at Rosehill. He races well on this track and he will appreciate the 15020 metres.

Stablemate I Am Awesome was never on the track when she won a much inferior race at Muswellbrook recently. She can run well despite the rise in class.

Plaisir is moody but talented and he made up ten lengths at Kembla last start.


2- Chalmers

9- I Am Awesome

8- Plaisir

Race 8- Komatsu Coal Miners Cup Benchmark 64 1200m

Rheingau is having his first start for his new trainer and he loves this track. He was a win and two seconds from three starts at Newcastle. He had a quiet trial at Warwick Farm last week.

Radical Impact has been placed in his past three starts all at Newcastle.

Fuchu trialled well for the new stable and he races well here.
