Racing was at FLEMINGTON on Saturday on GOOD track with rail TRUE. Most avoided being hard on that inside rail as the day wore on. Straight races? First two were won nearer inside, the final straight race they were well off that inside rail. 

With 33% of the vote PALENTINO tipped out MALAGUERA by 1% on the twitter poll. 

The G1 Guineas win by PALENTINO was tough! He had to work for clear air then surged late with a horse with a strong finish in TARZINO breathing down his neck, he just kept kicking! Justice was done! His `12.13 last 200m was 3/100ths quicker than TARZINO who lost no admirers given he came from back and wide and had no real cart into the race yet just missed. RISQUE sat just off the solid clip (48.67 1st-800m) and joined in but was lest a sitting shot for two high-class males, she ran super and again the fillies measured up well against our 3yo males at the top level. RIVER WILD weaved through and closed into 4th but the trifecta were wide-out, well off that inside section. Another filly JAMEKA was terrific also, forced wide (best ground) 700m out she was just no match that last 100m. VANBRUGH measure dup, he hit the line 12.22 which was 3rd-fastest and kiwi sensation XTRAVAGANT, well, he led, was attacked early when TIVACI took off then did kick but stayed on that inside section… And was swamped, like everything on the rail later in the day. Overall time was 1-35.28.

The mighty MALAGUERRA made a top return winning at 1000m given he is not really a 1000m horse! He was niggled at a way out then found his gears, charged through and won easily in the end. He broke 57-secs for the 1000m (56.97) and looks a G1 horse. His last three 200m splits were: 10.56/ 10.74 then 11.41. GRANE ran home well into second beating THERMAL CURRENT narrowly for that prize. MISS PROMISCUITY ran home well fresh also, she was 11.678 home Vs Thermal Current’s 11.69. Thought BEAU RADA went super here for easier, closer to that inside he ran 11.63 home, a plist petered only by the smart winner. 

The blinkers did the trick for WAWAIL and she had the sweet run just off the solid 48.02 1st-800m speed, her rider deliberately steering away from the inside rail, she ran 1-22.32 which was the fastest of the three x 1400m races on the day. WHISTLE BABY gave her a scare but was no match late and CHOOSE who had sat up second did well to hold third although it was a race of little change. JESSY BELLE sat just off the winner, she kept closing but never looked like reeling her in. ABOHAR is ready to win if she gets a wet track! MOSSBEAT (quickest last 200m) is a tease. MY SISTER LIL looks a good thing back a notch!

Race 5 saw RED BOMBER dig deepest late and win in 1-22.74. BURNING FRONT led in 48.85 1st-800m (would have been 4L off Choose and Co. with 600m to run) so certainly had his chance but was only grabbed late. PUCCINI kept coming in a much better effort and ZEBRINZ was clearly the pick of the closures rushing home race-fastest 11.37, his split 400-to-200m was a slick 10.55, he just needed a touch more speed on and is ready to win but there will be no $16 around next time I’d say. GENERAL GROOVE was good without much luck (home 11.38) near inside too! LEEBAZ held on OK. BIB MEMORY hit the line late in 11.40…. These first eight home were separated by only 1.5L !!

2YO Fillies in Race 2 was busy finish also… Spread inside to out there was 1.5L over the first six. SELENIA collared ALTER CALL on the inside but the latter fought hard and they narrowly beat CREATIVITY (first home outside) from EMPHATICALLY who closed late. THYME FOR ROSES was up with Creativity and game. DERRYN made a nice debut working home on heels of those outside. They ran 57.61 for 1000m.

ESTAMINET (slow recovery), GENERAL GROOVE (little room/ back to inside/ good), MIGHTY LIKE (blew start), HEADWATER (poor recovery), LUMOSTY (had slow recovery rate also), TAWTEEN (vetted with same issue!), XTRAVAGANT (goes in for mine), TIVACI (took charge mid race), SNOOPY (3-wide no cover), PERFECT REFLECTION (distressed/ issues), ABIDEWITHME (internal bleed), NAUTICAL (back/wide), SPREADEAGLED (went inside rail),  NEVIS (issues) and HIMALAYA DREAM (also pulled up with issues). 

In SYDNEY it was RANDWICK on GOOD track with rail TRUE. The pattern suited those away from the inside rail.

There was a boilover in the G1 with LE ROMAIN sitting off speed wide with trail (good spot today) and joining in strongly, like the way he quickened given the hot early speed (45.93 1st-800m is low flying) and he stopped the clock 1-33.83 which is just .7 secs off the track record ! PRESS STATEMENT raced tight and was held-up key stage, had to love how he quickened into the gap when it came and you thought, oh well, he will just reel in LE ROMAIN…. Winner would not stop! GOLD AMBITION was next to him top of straight and kept closing into 3rd with filly SYAT WITH ME getting the run away from the rail and battling well, she was simply no match for them late is all. MONTAIGNE should have finished closer, he had his momentum halted vital stage then hit line 12.30 (same as Stay With Me)… Only one horse broke 12-secs his last 200m… Press Statement ran an 11.98. Trust this form!

The other G1 was a bit of a yawn race with HOLLER leading in 29.94 1st-500m and was joined by Our Boy Malachi but he shook him off and kept running recording 22.8/ 11.74, putting that into race perspective, big finishers like FIRST SEAL and KERMADEC could only manage 11.76 final splits! Nice return from HAPPY CLAPPER here at WFA, he ran race-fastest 11.70 home and like the way he went over the line. CRITERION did little! They ran 1-15.4 for 1300m.

ENGLISH probably nudged out HEAVENS ABOVE for Run Of The Day in my humble… What a stunning return from this filly who had been trailing brilliantly, she was slow into stride and last then made ground but had nowhere to go, she ended up cutting back to near inside rail where nothing won all day and beat KINGLIKE who was also fresh-up, and terrific, off the back os his excellent trial. Winner recorded an amazing 32.88 last 600m, horses don’t go much quicker! BOSS LANE was back with her, he came wide (best ground/ clear air) and ran 32.90 his last 600m. SHIRAZ went nicely here also. FELINES was best on-pacer and she is super genuine! Slick early (33.97 1st-600m) and slick overall time 56.57.

Better mention HEAVENS ABOVE who was asked to sustain a long, wide run no trail in yet kept surging and ran over in-form ALL CERISE who had soft lead 48.5 1st-800m…They had a gap on 3rd.

2YO races:

If you are a fan of the fillies into the Slipper I have bad news for you: FRENCH FERN sat 3-wide and won and the win itself had merit, however, lining this up again the boys in the Todman, well, there is no comparison…. Fillies here 35.18 1st-600m and ran 1-10.64 overall, the boys were 35.09 early (so similar early race split) but ran 1-9.57 and winner KISS AND MAKE UP ran home 34.48 which was around 5L faster than winning filly French Fern! Wow !!

HONESTY PREVAILS (went inside rail/ slow recovery), CAPITALIST (mildly lame/ stable say not!), BEYOND THANKFUL (too keen), SWEET FIRE (should have finished closer), STRINDBERG (went inside), KINGS TROOP (injured), TULSA (went inside), MACKINTOSH (wide on-speed), RULE THE RIVER (worst ground), CRADLE ME (may well have won?), SOMETHING SECRET (went inside).
