Caulfield Saturday 27th February

Caulfield Saturday 27th February

RACE 1 –
N4 Tashbeeh – 0.5 unit Value Bet $5
N8 Assign –  0.5 unit Value Bet $5
N9 Radical – 0.5 unit Value Bet $9
Don’t really like the race.
Tashbeeh flying at minute but form from last start win didn’t hold up last week. Assign won ok midweek in town last start and may go on with it here.  Import having only 4th Aus run. Radical can improve on Colac cup failure when favourite.  Go on previous win.

Race 2 –
N3 Puritan  – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
N8 Brockhoff  – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
N11 Santa Ana Lane – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
Open race for 3yr olds. Puritan won well first up and looks promising. May be looking for further. Likewise Brockhoff who won well first up at the Valley. Santa Ana Lane was good at first and only prep and has trialled well for this.

Race 3 –
N1 Pasadena Girl – 1 unit Strong Bet $4.50
N4 Mossin Around – 0.5 unit Value Bet $5.50
N7 Egypt – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
Pasadena Girl class runner first up here.  Competed in all the good spring 3yr old fillies events. Mossin around good second behind smart type last start. Egypt terrific last week in better company when flew for second.  Repeat effort puts her in finish.

Race 4 –
N1 Mahuta – 2 unit Best Bet $2.20
N8 Tally – 0.5 unit Value Bet $6
Mahuta looks good thing on previous winning form and chance in next week’s guineas. Tally some chance on 2 wins at only 2 runs this prep but hard to see beating top weight at the weights.

Race 5 –
N8 Bow Creek – 2 unit Best Bet $4
N9 He or She Bet – 0.5 unit Value Bet $10
N13 Fenway – 0.5 unit Value Bet $9
Bow Creek luckless last start when held up  at G1 level.  Ruling favourite for Aus Cup here and need to justify that here. He or She good second in lesser grade behind in form Dan Zephyr.  Looks good value chance. Fenway can improve on first up 9th in CF ORR when help up for a short while

Race 6 –
N4 Hucklebuck  – 2 unit Best Bet $6
N10 Suavito – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
N11 Politeness – 0.5 unit Value Bet $9
Hucklebuck terrific third from wide gate in Orr and from good draw here thinking the one to beat. Will get cushy run and is an Emirates winner.  Suavito won the Orr when box seated and got all the favours.  From another good draw can’t be left out. Politeness got too far out of her ground last start before getting home hard to run second.  Class mare who can finish in the money second up

Race 7 –
N1 Extreme Choice – 1 unit Strong Bet $3.50
N3 Flying Artie – 1 unit Strong Bet $4.50
N10 Samara Dancer – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
N11 Concealer – 0.5 unit Value Bet $7
Extreme Choice can use good gate speed to posy up here and prove hard to beat. Flying Artie will go back from wide gate and hope to get cover 3 deep.  Will be getting home hard. Samara Dancer terrific winner 2 week’s back here and drawn to get good run. Concealer good second to Samara Dancer last start when slow out.  If jumps will be in the finish from nice draw

Race 8 –
N16 Heatherly – 1 unit Strong Bet $6.50
N18 Keen Array. – 1 unit Strong Bet $6.50
N14 Pittsburgh Flyer – 0.5 unit Value Bet $26
N15 Vezalay  – 0.5 unit Value Bet $26
Heatherly will be hard to beat with no weight and good draw. Will be on the speed. Keen Array also drawn well and no weight should see him hard to hold out.  Good second at G1 level on derby day. Pittsburgh Flyer talented mare wo can run a race fresh at big odds. Vezalay another talented mare first up with no weight, drawn wide but looks good value

Race 9 –
N10 Azkadellia – 2 unit Best Bet $3
N3 Tuscan Sling – 0.5 unit Value Bet $5
N6 Anaphora – 0.5 unit Value Bet $16
Azkadellia is starting to prove costly but will win one of these soon.  Thinking cant drop off now.  Tuscan Sling flying and terrific winner 2 weeks back when caught wide. Anaphora having toughest test to date but was terrific winner before short let up when held up and got out late
