Form Analysis: Rockhampton 20 September

By Kobie O'Brien

We're back at the Rockhampton Jockey Club for a seven-race program today, where the track is rated Good 4 and the rail is in the true position. 

We have taken a look at the program and highlighted one runner to watch in each event. 

Race 1

4. Now Ask Me went down narrowly to Bold Endeavour over the 1200m before going on to win her next two starts at this track and distance by an aggregate of almost six lengths. Goes up in class but up to this.


Others to watch:

2. Chief Advocate

3. Broken Finger

1. Lord Marmaduke


Race 2

3. Clateau got a soft lead last time out and went on to score by two lengths. Will find the front again and should take catching. Winning form over 1200m isn't great but has won out to 1400m in the past.



Others to watch:

1. Heartbreak Harry

6. Princely

2. Embrace The Pain


Race 3

1. Lickety Lachie lines up for trainer Darryl Hansen who will be looking to build on his impressive record in Rockhampton. May be meeting easier opposition here and has provincial premier jockey Justin Stanley in the saddle. 


Others to watch:

3. Marway

2. Despirito

11. Serious Crime


Race 4

3. Magmellou started favorite in four of five starts in Victoria, winning at Echuca with minor placings at Cranbourne and Wangaratta. Should be doing best work late with good speed on up front from Enemy Of Man and Mystic Forces. Trialed well behind Paradis Imperial.


Others to watch:

4. Mystic Forces

6. Innocent Lily

5. Blazeray


Race 5

2. Desert Cowboy

Forget last start. Back to 1050m after coming from near last to run 4th to From Within over 1000m at the Sunshine Coast two back. From Within went on to win in town, this is far easier. Soft draw, goes close.


Others to watch:

3. Our Boy Pendles

4. Annie’s Our Hero

1. Chica Peeps


Race 6

9. No Finer Jet has been knocking on the door, placing in 2 of 4 starts to date. Drawn wide but should jump and cross. Blinkers on. Trialed well and made up ground last start. Should improve now.


Others to watch:

4. Three Socks

7. Magic Word

11. Lady Mirabella


Race 7

6. Wear The Fox Hat

Strolled in by four last-start over 1560m at Mackay and is ready for the mile now. Caught the eye when coming from 13th to fill plae at Townsville earlier on. Very capable runner.


Others to watch:

2. Little Hunter

10. Craiglea Cetina

1. Guissola
