Raceday focus with Ray Thomas

[ad_1]

BLAKE SHIN, who rescued the Doncaster Mile-Sydney Cup doubles during the championship, could come into another profitable afternoon Tuesday.

Shinn has a full book with eight rides on the scenic provincial track as he appears to continue his excellent Sydney autumn carnival form.

He won Doncaster on Happy Clapper and Sydney Cup at Who Shot Thebarman and his clean consistency across the two days of the championship, jockey ensured the coveted Nathan Berry Medal as carnival's leading jockey.

This form has taken him to 57 Sydney victories for the season and second position at Sydney Jockeys premiership, only nine wins behind Brenton Avdulla.

With just over three months after the remaining 2017-18 season, Shinn has given him a chance to secure another Sydney premiership a decade after he first claimed the title.

Shinn's immediate focus is Hawkesbury today where his mounts including Promising Youngstar, $ 2.10 favorite for HRC Motel Maiden (1500m).

HAWKESBURY BEST WORKS WITH RAY THOMAS

BEST BET: LOVANI (Race 8, No. 4)

]] This looks like a perfect run for Lovani. She led far beyond 1800m at Rosehill's last start before joining another to a promising horse, Roman son. Lovani probably takes the seat of Social Element today and runs over the course. I am convinced that she will drive a strong 2000m.

NEXT BEST: YOUNGSTAR (Race 6, No. 12)

Three-year-olds on older horses, but there was a lot to like about her first-bet effort when third to Montrachet at Rosehill earlier this month. She is bred to appreciate getting out of range, so it goes up to 1500m today suits.

BEST VALUE: PRIME CANDIDATE (Race 2, No. 5)

Prime Candidate is worth playing at $ 3.90 for his collision with Dunatun ($ 2.40 favorite) for what There is a two-horse race. Prime Candidate is easily driven, but has plenty of natural speed and will give the top weight something to chase.

BEST EXOTIC: QUADDIE: R5: 1, 4, 9, 11; R6: 8, 11; R7: 1, 2, 7;

JOE PRIDE

Joe Pride has three entries, but everybody sees win chances – Oria (R1), Darajilla (R3) and Our Mantra (R7) )

JOCKEY TO THE FOLLOWING: BLAKE SHINN

Blake Shinn has a super rides game, but Corey Brown is also looking forward to a successful afternoon with eg. Dunatun (R2), Military Academy (R3)), Prahaar (R4), Smiling Manolito (R6) and Our Mantra (R7).

A three-year feast at High Chaparral, Youngstar was resumed when she ran well third behind Montrachet at Rosehill over 1200m earlier this month.

Shinn does not ride Youngstar that day, but has studied replays of the race and was impressed by the final finishing action of the fill over an unsuitable short race distance.

"Youngstar looks and progressive, medium distance stays type of fill," said Shinn. "She goes back to the provinces, looks good today and 1500m suits her."

Shinn rescued Juvenil Nicco Lad at his debut when half past three to Momentum Factor and Adana at Warwick Farm last month and jockey is sure that the puppy can break through Schweppes 2YO Maiden (1100m).

"I thought Nicco Lad ran a very game run on debut," said Shinn.

"We were three wide speed and he still went to win the race in the straight, but the first two had more fun and got him late. But he gave me a good feeling and the race experience will keep him in good condition.

Most of Shinn's mounts are among the favorite runners today, but Plymouth Road sees $ 11 for Stayers Prelude Benchmark 78 Handicap (2000m).

Plymouth Road has had two running back from a spell and impressing Shinn when the fourth to Drochaid on a heavy track in Gosford over 1600m last start.

"I thought Plymouth Road ran well in Gosford because he was forced wide to 600m and stuck" said Shinn.

"He goes up to 2000m and I would like to ride him early early and settle in the first three or four. He is a practical horse that contributes to a good preparation. & # 39; & # 39;

Shinn's other rides include Off The Dial (Race One), Prime Candidate (Race 2), With Purpose (Race Three), Stryge Rock Iggy The Moocher (Race Seven).

The well-bred Oria has not run since scoring win in a Goulburn virgin in December, but trains Joe Pride has her ready for a winning comeback after two solid attempts. She went to the line under a tight team to beat Second Step in a Warwick Farm heat last week. Tapavino got everyone favors at Wyong when she angled Cuba, but was then caught three wide without cover and just missed a place on this track last start. Grundalina hit the line hard as he continued, and Exella's breeds consistently.

BATING STRATEGY: ORIA TO WIN

RACE 2

Dunatun is aiming for his fourth win this campaign, but the 5kg he admits Prime Candidate will tell. I lean to Prime Candidate, a Goulburn winner last debut, resuming over 1100m here and heading a long way before finishing fifth to Vellor. He has since tested well at Gosford and will be on the go, lengths in front of Dunatun. They should run one-two today, with Cosmic Cameo and Mr Tindall's other chances.

BATTING STRATEGY: PRIME CANDIDATE TO WIN

RACE 3

The military academy raced in a forward position and hit the front of the straight before being flooded by the impressive Extreme Measure over Tuesday's course and distance. Mount now. With Purpose was broadly uncovered at Muswellbrook on debut and lasted well for third. Daydream Explorer is located in seven of its 16 starters since resumption and she's getting well in the way. Darajilla showed speed in a recent survey, so see some market movements.

BETTING STRATEGY: BOX TRIFECTA 2, 3, 4, 5

RACE 4

was placed in his debut preparation before resuming with a good second to Montrachet at Rosehill on April 2nd. Desert Lord, a first starter from Team Hawkes, had plenty in reserve when he was close fourth in a Rosehill trial. Phoenix Charm hit the line strongly to just miss the debut at Gosford. Larger tracks should fit. Stryke Rock was just hit by Red Rover at Rosehill, which is strong form here.

BETTING STRATEGY: ADD TO WIN; SACKS ON THE DESERT LORD OR WEIGHT

RACE 5

Nicco Lad was three wide without tires on debut at Warwick Farm and held close to third parties behind Momentum Factor in a strong run. Invictus Salute was impressive in a recent trial winner at Warwick Farm. If this stuff brings her test form, she will be hard to beat. Priestess has also tested well for his debut, and Home Win, a widow of Sweet Idea and Showtime, has not been tested in her trials.

BETTING STRATEGY: NICCO LADED TO WIN; QUINELLA 1, 11

RACE 6

Youngstar, a High Chaparral Filly, was under pressure a long way out in his Rosehill 1200m debut, but worked to the line strongly late for the third to Montrachet and Stock Up (who is in Race 4). The steps up to 1500m must fit. Tunero had trouble keeping up with a Warwick Farm 1200m when he resumed but has tried nicely since. Smiling Manolito is back to his right trip, and Happy Hustler got well started at Goulburn.

BATTING STRATEGY: YOUNGSTAR TO WIN

RACE 7

Our Mantra should be 62kg, but he can still win. He was outclassed in Tulloch Stake's final start, but I feel he found 2000m beyond him. Better suited back to 1600m. The red captain was too hard for his rivals over 1500m at the last start. Weekend Affair fits better on a regular track, and Iggy The Moocher has his first start for new coach Bjorn Baker, but his bush shape suggests he wants to be competitive.

BETTING STRATEGY: BOX TRIFECTA 1, 2, 3, 7

RACE 8

Lovani brought home but was not fighting for the impressive Roman son at Rosehill over 1800m last start. She was group 2-located in Flemington last spring and is fit for three runners from a spell. Social Element is a hard-wearing type that was competitive in stakes during the summer. Fitter for two runs back. Spooky Wooky and Plymouth Road are chances.

BETTING STRATEGY: LOVANI TO WIN
