FORM ANALYSIS BY DARREN CLAYTON

 

Speed maps are based on recent and anticipated racing patterns. For important changes of tactics which may affect the accuracy of this speed map follow @QRICstewards on Twitter. 

RACE ONE

FEELINGFORAMIRACLE (6)
resumes from a spell after being placed in her past 3 in succession. 2 starts back she was hitting the line in good style from a 2nd line gate and last start returned a tidy effort from gate 6 when 3rd to the smart PARK LIFE in a Gold Pot heat. She looks to get her chance despite the wide gate.

ROCKNROLL DIOR (1) is a first starter from the Grant Dixon stable that has trialled 4 times in readiness for her debut. By top sire Rock N Roll Heaven out of the good racemare Dixie Bromac it will pay to watch the market.

SELECTIONS: FEELINGFORAMIRACLE (6), ROCKNROLL DIOR (1), MISS ROB ROY (3), TORQUE WITH AN ACE (4)
SUGGESTED BET: FEELINGFORAMIRACLE (6) to win

RACE TWO

HERITAGE BEACH (1) started fav from gate 8 here last start and couldn’t make any ground on the airborne PALE BEAR BOO who cleared away for another big win. 4 starts back he was too slick from the passing lane and backed it up with another win off the 2nd line. With the options from the gate he looks hard to stop.

GLENFERRIE BABY (4) took on a similar type race here 2 starts back and after landing gate 1 tried to take them all the way. After setting even panels over the 2040m trip she was grabbed late to finish 3.5m from the winner TARIN KOWT. Not suited last start from gate 6, look for a sharper effort here.

SELECTIONS: HERITAGE BEACH (1), GLENFERRIE BABY (4), YES BROTHER YES (5), HE CAN TALK (7)
SUGGESTED BET: HERITAGE BEACH (1) to win

RACE THREE

PALE BEAR BOO (2) is airborne at present and shoots for the hat-trick after successive wins over this trip. He has been injected to the race and then pulled away from his opponents on each occasion and has been recording good sectionals in the process. With a repeat of his last run, they will struggle to get near him.

HEART OF CHANGE (3) will take good benefit from her return to the track here last start to begin her 4YO term. Sent straight to the front from gate 2 when resuming she was never in danger to record a tidy win. A four-time winner here on the triangle she can issue a challenge.

SELECTIONS: PALE BEAR BOO (2), HEART OF CHANGE (3), WEASEL (1), KAANAPALI (8)
SUGGESTED BET:  PALE BEAR BOO (2) to win

RACE FOUR

TIME TRAVELLER (1)
was a winner here 4 starts back when finishing best from a 2nd line gate. 2 starts back he took on a similar type field when finishing 4m from the winner SKYFELLA CAM. His run was solid from gate 5 last start and from this gate he gets all the favours and looks hard to stop.

ITS ALL GO (3) continued his good form with a victory over the 204m trip last start when leading all the way at red figures and never looking in danger. That was good reward following 3 successive placed runs and from this gate he can put himself into the contest and be ready to challenge

SELECTIONS: TIME TRAVELLER (1), ITS ALL GO (3), HOT DOGMA (5), MIDNIGHT BENDER (8)
SUGGESTED BET: TIME TRAVELLER (1) to win

RACE FIVE

JAKES ARK (5) has the wide gate to contend with but this looks his chance to breakthrough for his 1st 3YO victory. His races this campaign have been well spaced and he should benefit from having a 1 week space since his last run here. In a wide-open event he is worth a ticket.

SPIRITO NERO (2) did her share of early work last start and battled on well to be 7m from the winner. 2 starts back she claimed the bronze and with further improvement can add another podium finish here.

SELECTIONS: JAKES ARK (5), SPIRITO NERO (2), LARA BAY (6), GETINANHANGON (10)
SUGGESTED BET:

RACE SIX

PITTSWORTH MAN (1)
has been freshened since his last outing when fading off following a tough run. 5 starts back he was able to find the front from gate 2 and once in control took them all the way to hold on for a half-head victory. From the gate he can look to dictate and will be gripping on in the stretch.

FLASHING GOOD TIME (7) will be glued to the back of the 1 and will be ready to take the snipers shot once the passing lane presents. Placed in 3 of her past 5 starts, she tried to take them all the way last start when run down in the stretch. With the cosy trip she will get every chance.

SELECTIONS:  PITTSWORTH MAN (1), FLASHING GOOD TIME (7), XTRAORDINARY LOMBO (10), MINI CAM (8)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-7-8-10

RACE SEVEN

MASTER MONTANA (1) shoots for a hat-trick after wins at Tamworth over the 1980m and then here over the 2040m trip. Here last week he started from the 2nd line and came with a well-timed run to arrive in time to take a half-neck victory. From the improved gate he can use his gate speed and look to dictate terms.

CALCAVADO (7) settled in the pocket trail here 2 starts back and when seeing open track made the most of his chances to sprint clear to victory. Last start he worked home wide out to grab the bronze and from the soft trip will be ready to take the closing shot.

SELECTIONS: MASTER MONTANA (1), CALCAVADO (7), JAZZY ARTIST (3), PROJECTILE (10)
SUGGESTED BET: MASTER MONTANA/CALCAVADO (1/7) quinella
