Trev’s Blackbookers

Track was downgraded several times during the day. Started off a Soft 6 and the last race was run on a Heavy 8. They got away from the fence from early on. Was an advantage to be midfield to forward in the run.

Race 2: Our Campana – resuming, in for a good prep.

Race 2: Miss Iano – love the wet, needs a bias that suits closers.

Race 3: Tavidance – terrific second-up off a long spell and still looks to be on the up. Can step again out to 1600m next start.

Race 5: Mystery Shot – stating the obvious, but hasn’t its ceiling yet and will win better races.

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Track raced in the Dead 5 range. Six of the nine of the winners were in lanes 3 – 7 at the 400m mark. All winners were midfield or better from the 600m mark.

Race 7: Stretto – Terrific effort sitting three-wide on a solid speed in third position. Fought on well to be beaten 1.3 lengths. First two horses in the run were beaten 14.5 lengths and 18.2 lengths and were single figures at Betfair SP. Look for it in another 1600m run.

Rail: Out 12m entire circuit

Quaddie (S-TAB): $6,102.10 (8/9/8/3)

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Track raced as I had predicted. Five winners were in lane 2 at the 800m – 600m. 8/9 winners settled in a forward position on the map.

Race 3: Splendoronthegrass – Went back to last from the barrier and hooked out wide in straight. Best closer in the race, against the bias.

Race 6: Elderflower – Was the best of the on-pacers in a solidly-run race. Can improve off that run with a similar setup in race of lesser tempo.

Race 8: Creedence :Went back from the barrier giving it little chance in the race. Ran 5th / 2nd / 3rd fastest for the day for the last 600/400/200. Like to see at a similar distance, with a better draw where it can take up a forward position.

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Track played well. Even spread of barriers by category. They were out in the wide lanes for the straight races.

Race 4: Right You Are – Had to go back from wide barrier. Look for it if drawn better next run over a  similar trip. Can step to new level.

Race 6: Lord Belvedere – Was coming off a 49 day break. Terrific training performance, should be able to step off this rating at next start in two weeks over a similar trip.

Race 7: Front Page – Untapped soft win. Can win again and should be able to step again.

Quaddie (S-TAB): $916.40 (10/4/9/10)

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Savage on-pace inside bias. Look for any horses that defied that pattern going forward.

Race 1: Sense Of Honour – Went back from barrier and made good ground against the bias, running the quickest last 600m, 400m and 200m of the day. 1400m from a better draw looks ideal.

Race 5: Sansom – Resumed with a nice run, hitting the line well away from the inside. Ran the second-quickest last 800m of the day. Knocked up late. 1200m next start looks ideal.

Quaddie (S-TAB): $4,626.20 (4/3/12/12)

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Only one winner drew Barrier 3 or inside on the day (Jolly Sailor in the last). It was a disadvantage to be back past midfield on the day. The track otherwise raced relatively even.

Race 4: Holbein – raced on pace in solidly run BM78. Race rated well. Would like to see in a 1400m race, up in class and down in weight. .

Race 6: Massaf – has now had the required run at the distance range and can bounce next start at a similar distance

Race 8: Haunted – sat wide throughout on a good tempo, is now ready to win at this trip.

Rail: Out 9m entire circuit

Quaddie (S-TAB): $4,915.50 (5/2/1/8)

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Rail was out 9m with the track having marking on the inside lanes. 8 of the 9 winners drew inside barrier 7. 8 of the 9 winners were in lanes 5-11 at the 400. So look for horses than made ground from the 400 that were on the inside 3 lanes.

Race 2: Broadwayandfourth – hit the line well over 1100m, running the best last 800 and 600 and second-best last 400 and 200m of the day. Could now be ready for 1400m again.

Race 5: Tahitian Dancer – no luck in the straight when held up going for a run in the inferior ground. No luck start before. Hitting peak fitness and can run to best next start in the right grade.

Rail: Out 5m entire circuit

Quaddie (S-TAB): $62,165.80 (5/5/4/6)

Trev’s Blackbookers

Bias: Only one winner was on the fence at the 600m. Horses got wider after race 3 in circle races. Straight race winners were all wide on track. Times suggest track in Slow 7 range.

Race 3: Diaquin – ran on well from back in early race, when nothing had made ground out wide. Back up to 1600m and a wet track look ideal.

Race 4: El Questro – returned with good performance. Was never in the A-ground. Loves wet tracks .Ran peak figure second-up last prep. Follow on wet tracks

Race 7: Prepared to forgive Duke of Plumpton and Aussie Nugget. The former was never in the A-ground and fought on well. Loves wet. The latter didn’t have much luck but would prefer no worse than Dead 5.

Race 8: Shot Of Irish – no peace in front, never wide enough in the straight. Similar trip, wet track, on-pace suited, with stronger rider.

Race 7: Chapada: looked to hit the lead a little early before tiring late. Look for similar class and same distance – should be stronger.
