The Bool Preview

DAY 1

Race 1 – George Taylor Memorial Maiden Hurdle (3200m)

8. Subiasco (7) – Tom Ryan

Race 2 – SL Distributors Maiden Hurdle (3200m)

6. Hursley (6) – Steve Pateman

Race 3 – Shojun Concrete Maiden Hurdle (3200m)

2. Big Bad Baz (11) – Tom Ryan

3. Euroman (2) – Shane Jackson

Race 5 – Callaghan Motors VOBIS Gold Strike (1000m)

6. Akashinga (6) – John Allen

On debut, this daughter of Zoffany tracked up like she was going to win but stopped abruptly during the run and finished poorly. We could find any explanation as to why that happened, but she has trialled well since and should go well.

7. Stardayz (17) – Harry Coffey

This is probably our best of the three fillies we have in this race although she has drawn the worst which is frustrating. She trialled nicely last week and if she can get some luck in the run, we think she will run a nice race.

15. Seatonic (13) – Jye McNeil

She has come on from her first-up run in the Chairman’s Stakes where she struggled with a bit of heat-stress and we think she will go well.

Race 6 – 3YB FM Scotty Stewart Brierly Steeplechase (3450m)

2. Bit of a Lad (2) – Steve Pateman

His last run at Pakenham was a forgive as he cut an artery during the race and lost a fair amount of blood but did well to finish the race. He strips fitter for this run and we expect him to go well.

Race 7 – Cally Hotel BM78 Handicap (2350m)

4. Last Week (8) – Harry Coffey

7. Truly High (9) – Liam Riordan

DAY 2

2. El Vincitore (1) – John Allen

Race 4 – Decron Dunroe BM120 Steeplechase (3450m)

5. Ascot Red (7) – Steve Pateman

Race 5 – Warrnambool City Volkswagon 3YO BM70 Handicap (1400m)

1. The Closer (11) – John Allen

Race 6 – Sovereign Resort Galleywood Hurdle (3200m)

7. Big Blue (8) – John Allen

This has been his target race for a long time. He has improved fitness-wise since his narrow defeat last start at Pakenham and is feeling very well in himself. It is a strong race, but he gets in well at the weights and we couldn’t be happier with him.

Race 8 – Midfield Group Wangoom Handicap (1200m)

9. Enigman (5) – Nikita Beriman

We have targeted him for this race for a long way out and he has had his usual break between run. He won well last start at Mornington and we think he is spot on.

10. Grey Shadow (9) – Jye McNeil

Yet to decide whether she will run or not

Race 9 – Sinclair Wilson BM64 Handicap (1700m)

9. Saint Peter (10) – Jamie Mott

Race 6 – Evergreen Turn Neville Wilson Series Final (1700m)

5. Mr Sheridan (19) – John Allen

Race 7 – Grand Annual Steeplechase (5500m)

3. Bit of a Lad (1) – TBC

How he runs in the Brierly will determine if he back up into the Grand Annual

Race 9 – Sungold Milk Warrnambool Cup (2350m)

3. Sopressa (8) – Damian Thornton

We have opted to back her up from Saturday where she ran okay. The step up in distance will suit her and we are hopeful she can run well.

7. Azuro (11) – Harry Coffey

He ran well last start at Sandown, and we think he will go well again here.

Race 10 – No Fuss Events Hire BM64 Handicap (1300m)

3. Quality Seeker (7) – Jamie Kah

7. Skidman (10) – John Allen
