The Sydney Review April 17

3 months ago

Unfortunately, for some reason, the track was watered without making much known, and what was set up as a Good track became Soft, yet the track ratings remained Good. It’s poor behaviour. The inside became inferior going as a result.


Finding “horses to follow” is difficult, as many of these were having their Grand Finals, but we can identify some good runs and see where they show up next.


ARNAQUER huge tempo against. He was going 13-1600m at start two, was heavily backed, but had race shape against. Not out of it in a very thin G1 Champagne Stakes on the back up.


ELLSBERG with ease. Can win again. Sky's the limit for him now he looks to be doing everything right. PRIVATE EYE raced like a miler.


PANDANO huge given how quick they went up top. Winner got close to the ride of the day from Bowman, outstanding.


CRYSTAL BOUND very good. 1000m-1200m 2nd up runs spaced and the extra give in the ground surely didn’t help. Winner very good and strong late, got tempo to suit and superb ride. A VERY FINE RED very good in what was becoming inferior going.


Best horse wins in HUNGRY HEART.


WILD RULER huge here 3 wide without cover, superb win. ISOTOPE held up/unlucky, but winner did it tough. PRAGUE missed the start and rattled home. Went huge, but can’t afford bad manners at this level. Forget SEPTEMBER RUN in Sydney.


He wanted 3200m and the rest SELINO, but stable got him to peak for the Grand Final. I didn’t think he could sprint, so the ride to let him slide early was the winning move and superb. REALM OF FLOWERS shuffled back at crucial stage and pinned in the inferior going. Run had more merit than meets the eye. Her L200m was the F OTR in the inferior ground. Missed opportunity. Qld now, or Ramsden? 


Ride of the day on ADDEYBB. Missed the start, pocketed VE to keep her keen and then let him slide early to build the revs. If JMac has his time again, he rides VE like the best horse and parks her OSL. Restraining her was her ultimate undoing. 


Connections of PROBABEEL will be furious about the track getting watered. Did she have every chance? Yes. Does NETTOYER prefer getting her toe in??? Yes. ODEUM missed the start badly. Forget she ever ran. 


My god AIR TO AIR is airborne. So outgraded here but keeps storming home. F L600m OTD. Desperate for 1400m and a middle gate.
