Newcastle Preview - Tuesday 8 May

07.05.18

RACE 1 – VITAL HOSPITALITY GROUP MAIDEN 1600M

City Of Love is knocking on the door after two recent Wyong placings. The step up to the 1600 and the bigger track are all positives and Angland rides.

I Arize ran on well at Canberra last start and he was placed in his only other two starts.

Trust Who will appreciate the drop-in class.

Selections:

3 City Of Love   

1 I Arize               

6 Trust Who

 

RACE 2 – E GROUP SECURITY 3YO MAIDEN PLATE 1400M

Sazavee has very good metropolitan form and she is weighted a ‘good thing’ and the set weight conditions. The blue blood filly was three wide with no cover when beaten half a length on the Kensington track on April 18. Last start the filly shared the lead in a 1400 metre Randwick Maiden, when second in a strong race. From barrier one she will lead and prove difficult to run down.

Never Doubted You is on debut after a nice trial and Chouxtorial could fill a place.

Selections:

8 Sazavee           

7 Never Doubted You    

2 Chouxtorial

 

RACE 3 – SENPOS POINT OF SALE MAIDEN 1300M

Illict Romance steps up to a more suitable trip after a solid performance on debut over 1200 metres at Scone recently. The filly was first from the barriers and she ran on well to be beaten three lengths. She will only carry 55 kilograms after the claim.

Darajilla was placed first up at Hawksbury on April 17 and she should run well.

Sun And Heir went okay at Gosford on Anzac day and could fill a place.

Selections: 

2 Illicit Romance              

1 Darajilla           

9 Sun And Heir

 

RACE 4 - IGA LIQUOR PROVINCIAL SPRINT CLASS 4 900M

All Stand is a very fast short courser and from the rails barrier he will give them something to chase. He won a Randwick Highway Handicap on January 18 before a narrow defeat in the $60,000 Malcom Cusick Class 4 on Gosford Cup Day. The engagement of Kerrin McEvoy is a huge positive.

I Am Special was successful first up for his new trainer on this track on April 28.

And So It Goes was a last start Hawksbury winner.

Selections:

1 All Stand          

3 I Am Special   

2 And So It Goes

 

RACE 5 – HUNGERFORD HILL 2YO MAIDEN 900M

King is a speedster which has led in all three career starts at Flemington and Gosford. He was run down by a smart horse first up at Gosford on Anzac Day and he will be fitter this time. It is a huge drop in class for the colt and another good ride for McEvoy.

Shadow Bridge was a brilliant trial winner at Warwick Farm recently and he has genuine speed.

Pluma is on debut after a nice trial.

Selections:

1 King   

3 Shadow Bridge              

7 Pluma

 

RACE 6- SHARP ELECTRONICS GROUP BENCHMARK 65 1500M

Nadacheva races well on this track and he comes in well after the claim. He is racing well with two recent placings in good company at Muswellbrook and on this track. He normally gets back and runs on well.

Frogmarch was placed here last start and he was a Wyong winner two starts back.

Charlie Chap drops in class and has a chance.

Selections:

2 Nadacheva     

3 Frogmarch      

1 Charlie Chap

 

RACE 7 – VITAL HOSPITALITY GROUP BENCHAMARK  66 1900M

Play is a progressive three-year-old and she gives the impression that the longer trip won’t be a problem. She won a 1200 metre Maiden on this track first up on April 14 and two weeks later she came from a long way back for a strong third over 1400 metres here.

Raise The Limit is in good form and has a chance.

Seababe races well here and has a chance.

Selections: 

9 Play   

5 Raise The Limit             

7 Seababe

 

RACE 8 – EGROUP SECURITY CLASS 1 1200M

Poetic Charmer resumes after a good trial performance. His only win was on this track in November but he has placed at Rosehill and Canterbury.

Noble Creed was impressive winning on debut at Gosford recently and she is a big threat.

Bachelor comes off a last start Wyong win and cannot be underestimated.

Selections:

1 Poetic Charmer            

8 Noble Creed  

2 Bachelor
