Saturday Racing Preview – Caulfield

Saturday racing in Victoria is at the upgraded Caulfield track. And it’s a Black Type day!

The battle rages on between Dwayne Dunn and Craig Williams for the Vic Jock’s Title. Already Dunn’s son, Dylan, has won the Apprentice Title. All three have big books of rides on Saturday….

 

Rail Position: Is true entire course
Track Condition: rates a soft 5

 

Race: 1- Carol Kelly Plate 2000m

Date: 30/7
Time: 12:00pm
Location: Caulfield

TURBO STREET has Craig Williams on board and is racing in turbo-charged fashion of late. Will be in this finish. Dwayne Dunn pilots GRAND ALLOWANCE who also has struck form. Bound to be running on while MAGIC CONSOL is smart and better performed than the others. Rates highly also.

The Early Crows Top TipTurbo Street

 

Race: 2 – VOBIS Gold Stayers 2400m

Date: 30/7
Time: 12:35pm
Location: Caulfield

AUTHORITARIAN dropped in grade and went forward last start. They all left him alone on top and he strolled in. Harder here but he’s found form and confidence again. BONDEIGER was 2nd up last start and only plodded home this grade. Fitter now and can rattle off strong sectionals late. SCHERZOSO is highly competitive this trip. Has won two of past five and that’s good form for this.

The Early Crows Top TipScherzoso

 

Race: 3- Brian Reckas Hcp 1000m

Date: 30/7
Time: 1:10pm
Location: Caulfield

CRAFTY COP is brilliant. Well his recent trial suggests so anyway. Is being aimed at big things down the track so could prove too slick for these. HAY BALE has foot on till being placed past three this type of grade. Chance again. KENTUCKY MISS was impressive winning in Sydney when resuming. Is fast and strong.

The Early Crows Top TipCrafty Cop

 

Race: 4- John Skewes Hcp 3YO Fillies 1200m

Date: 30/7
Time: 1:48pm
Location: Caulfield

YASNAT is rising in grade and has a big weight but has won past three looking extra smart. CARTERISTA is a maiden but one with a wrap upon her. Rattled home for 2nd upon debut this grade. And it’s a tad further this time. ANATOLA has found form and the weight claim will be big help.

The Early Crows Top TipCarterista

 

Race: 5- Helen Egan Hcp  2000m

Date: 30/7
Time: 2:25pm
Location: Caulfield

HURSLEY is racing in great heart. Big weight but is primed to run a bottler and suited here. MR SIMPLES is rising in grade but appears to have the wheels to handle it. Won two of past three and is improving every run. IT’S HUMPHREY carried a big weight to lead all way last start at Sale. This is harder but lone leader gives him a hope.

The Early Crows Top TipHursley

 

Race: 6- Debra Coombes F & M Hcp 1200m

Date: 30/7
Time: 3:05
Location: Caulfield

MISS SOFTHANDS is talented enough to win this. Is only 2nd up here but is fit enough, will be right in the fray on the wire. BUTTERBOOM is a smart Syd filly and is going to be suited at the weights. If she gets around Caulfield she’ll be competitive. CHOICE is resuming but had talent this type of race when last in work.

The Early Crows Top TipButterboom

 

Race: 7- Bletchingly Stakes Gr 3 $150,000  1200m

Date: 30/7
Time: 3:45pm
Location: Caulfield

FAST N ROCKING was a certainty beaten last start running into dead ends all the way home. This track may serve up something similar but he has a great finishing kick when in the clear. MAHUTA is very fast and strong. He may just ping the lids and fly across from this alley and lead them all. Was smart when last in work and may be even smarter now. ODYSSEY MOON is very reliable and well up to this type of race. Will be perfectly placed all way and will grind home gamely.

The Early Crows Top TipFast ‘N’ Rocking

 

Race: 8- Open 3YO Hcp 1400m

Date: 30/7
Time: 4:25pm
Location: Caulfield

PRINCE OF BROOKLYN is classy and now is fit. Last start topped him off perfectly for a shot at this grade. KINSHACHI should be suited this trip. Should get a cosy run on the fence all way. If he gets out he can motor. WALL STREET WOLF is reported to be extra smart. Drawn nicely and should be very strong to the line. Won by 8 lengths in easier grade last start but will fire up.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Wall Street Wolf

 

Race: 9- BM 78 Pommery Masters Hcp 1400m

Date: 30/7
Time: 5:00pm
Location: Caulfield

DON’T GET EXCITED has been up a while but is racing in fine fettle this grade placing past two. MAGICUS is another reported to be quite brilliant and led all way to win last start in similar grade. PROUD WOLF will be odds but comes in great at the weights following a claim.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Magicus

Saturday Racing Preview – Rosehill

Sydney winter racing returns to Rosehill this week for the Winter Challenge, with less rain this week helping the track to dry.

 

Rail Position: out 3 metres
Track Condition: rates a Soft 7

 

Race: 1- HYLAND RACE COLOURS HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 11:45pm
Location: Rosehill

Almost every runner in this field has form around Morton’s Fork in some way, so it’s relatively easy to line them up. Harper’s Choice finished a narrow second last start and beat home most of this field here at Rosehill over 1400m. He worked home very strongly that day so should easily get the extra 100m, and third-up will be cherry ripe. Sugar Bella is the interesting runner in the race and is having her first start in town. Both of her previous starts have been strong wins at home in Goulburn so this is a big step up. But she does look at talent and is from a smart stable.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Harper’s Choice

 

Race: 2- SCHWEPPES HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 12:20pm
Location: Rosehill

Very hard to fault Esteban who will enter the race as a strong favourite. The gelding easily handled his first Saturday assignment last start, winning by almost seven lengths. Prior to that, he won by similar margins at Newcastle, suggesting that wasn’t a fluke. He will likely be short, but is in outstanding form. Zayam won a very similar race to this at Randwick last preparation so is one of the few proven at this level. Now third-up, his run last start in a higher grade over the unsuitable mile suggests he will be hard to beat. Taking the value with the experienced runner.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Zayam

 

Race: 3- TAB HIGHWAY PLATE

Date: 30/7
Time: 12:55pm
Location: Rosehill

If Explosive Scene can repeat his run two starts ago here in a Highway at this trip he will be very difficult to hold out. That day he was only beaten half-a-length, but a recent Grafton run wasn’t overly impressive. Thunder Road was a Highway winner last start at Randwick at huge odds and really looks an improver. With only five career starts he is only lightly raced, but has won his past two and is proven. Chosen Prayer’s form doesn’t look flash on the surface, but she has been running in town of late on merit. This is a huge step back in class against a country field with a gun on board.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Chosen Prayer

 

Race: 4- CASINO PRINCE @ VINERY HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 1:30pm
Location: Rosehill

Flamboyant Lass has been good without being spectacular this preparation and comes here fourth-up after a three-week break. She has, however, been thereabouts in all of her runs, and is drawn perfectly to bounce out and lead again. Harlem Lady is another who has been close without winning. Finishing in the placings in her last four starts, you can’t doubt her consistency. I really like the jockey change to Avdulla, which is a good sign of what the stable think. Extensible is the one of the rise and only lightly raced. She should have won last start and has no issues with the wet or distance.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Harlem Lady

 

Race: 5- TAB HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 2:05
Location: Rosehill

A very light race for the three-year-old fillies. Not really sure what to make of Atom Eve who has been well found in the market in all three starts in town this preparation, but is yet to finish closer than a length and a half. This is easier, and you’d expect her to make a statement here. Viaductress is a last start, and two-time midweek winner. That form really looks enough to beat this field, but this is her first-up run after an 80-day spell and she has not trialled. Yet to win fresh, but with a great record in her second and third runs, I’m willing to run the risk.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Viaductress

 

Race: 6- MCGRATH ESTATE AGENTS PLATE

Date: 30/7
Time: 2:45
Location: Rosehill

Last week’s Canterbury race over 1250m looks the best form coming in here. Pioneering won that race right on the line after being well found in the market. That was her second win in-a-row and she looks like a horse going places. Dee Nine Elle was a very narrow second that day as favourite and was possibly a little unlucky after fluffing the start. Expect the money to come for her again, but I’m not sure if she’s the improver. Art Nouveau was third in the race coming from the rear of the field. I suspect that he will get a better run in transit this week, and looks the one wanting the extra trip.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Art Nouveau

 

Race: 7- WINTER CHALLENGE

Date: 30/7
Time: 3:25pm
Location: Rosehill

Few runners in the feature are genuinely looking for this trip which narrows the field for us. Oxford Poet won the Winter Stakes here at Rosehill last start in a similar race. He is drawn perfectly to roll forward again, but interesting, is yet to win over 1500m. Marenostro finished fourth in the Winter Stakes and has been so-so in recent starts. It really looks as though he does his best work fresh, but he does have a great record at this trip. Zin Zan Eddie really likes to mix his form, but when he’s on he is really on. If you’re willing to take that risk he’s the one to follow from the Winter Stakes.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Zin Zan Eddie

 

Race: 8- TAB.COM.AU HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 4:05pm
Location: Rosehill

Struggling to make a case for many of the runners in this one. McCreery has had a very interesting career of very spaced runs, but backs up after only a week into this. You’d have to think that is a good sign from the master trainer, and the drop in distance looks ideal. Super Tycoon has won his last two in town on a Saturday and really looks in career best form. Both of those wins were over long trips, so hard to know if he might struggle coming back, but he does look as though he will handle the class rise with ease.

The Early Crows Top Tip: McCreery

 

Race: 9- NSW RACEHORSE OWNERS ASSOCIATION TROPHY

Date: 30/7
Time: 4:05pm
Location: Rosehill

No Bad Blood finished only a length away first-up in a similar race. He finished very strongly that day and has a good record when racing fresh so should be spot on for this. Cheeky Babe is only lightly raced but was good first-up at Canterbury. She has had a freshen up and trial since so should be one of the fitter runners. Invitations returns to Sydney after a hit and run mission to Brisbane where he finished a close second. The stable does know how to place a horse to win so don’t be surprised to see him feature here.

The Early Crows Top Tip: No Bad Blood

Saturday Racing Preview – Doomben

This weekend’s Brisbane metro meeting is at Doomben where we have finally found a dry track.

Rail Position: out 3.5 metres
Track Condition: rates a Good 4

Race: 1- MEKKA RACEDAY OPEN HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 12:27pm
Location: Doomben

A small field of seven to contest the first race where to runners look to be the standouts. Rednav won the Grafton Cup Prelude and Grafton Cup in his last two starts at big odds and gets in at the top weight here. His form before then was nothing to write home about so you have to wonder whether he comes alive out at these longer trips. For a placegetter in the Queensland Cup, Viva Espana gets in here well at the weights. Prior to that run, she finished second twice here at Doomben over this trip. You’d expect big things given they’ve kept her up north.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Viva Espana

 

Race: 2- COCA COLA HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 1:02pm
Location: Doomben

Hi Son drops significantly from regular stakes racing into this, although he was only ok at that level. This is easier but he may be a non-winner.  I like that Final Decision has been brought north for this. He has finished second in his last two runs in Sydney Saturday metro races so should find this well and truly in his range to win. Final Decision has unfortunately though been scratched, so Desert General also looks to be down in class here after racing as high as stakes races this preparation. His last run over a mile at Eagle Farm looks enough to win this.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Desert General

 

Race: 3- ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS THE MOVIE HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 1:40pm
Location: Doomben

Spot the Diff has already had 12 stars so is the veteran of the field. She’s the class and is well placed. Rare Occurrence is one of the few runners in the race to have Saturday form, and has been very good in her last two, finishing second on both occasions. A short freshen up into this won’t hurt at all, but barrier 17 is a nightmare draw in a big field. O’reilly Cyrus was very good winning on debut at Doomben last year and has won a trial leading into this. Assuming she’s returned well she could be a talent.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Rare Occurrence

 

Race: 4- SMIRNOFF OPEN

Date: 30/7
Time: 2:17pm
Location: Doomben

Saluter is a class runner who was placed twice in stakes races over the carnival. Forget he ever went around last start where the rider reported he didn’t handle the wet ground. This will be much more suitable. Beckham is a big last start winner at Eagle Farm and was also placed in a Listed race over the carnival. The Eye Liner form is standing up very well which placed him as one of the best in this race. Alpha Beat is a big watch after changing trainers and moving north. He has been given a crack at some decent races previously but may want longer.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Saluter

 

Race: 5- MOET AND CHANDON CHAIRMAN’S CLUB HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 2:57pm
Location: Doomben

A massive field in what really is a dart board race. Free Billy has been racing well in the country recently which could be enough for this. Belflyer has been racing in reasonably high class at the provincial level and is a last start winner. This is a step up, but he’s well placed. Monster of Energy finished second by a very narrow margin in a very similar race at Eagle Farm last start. He was well found in the market that day which is always a good guide, and a similar run should win this.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Monster of Energy

 

Race: 6- COUNTRY MUSIC RACEDAY PLATE

Date: 30/7
Time: 3:37pm
Location: Doomben

Slydini drops from a benchmark 83 at Randwick into this after a three-week break and change in stables. He finished second that day by a long way, but this is easier and he can break through here. Comic Story is first-up since January and has a good record fresh. His only wins have come at this trip so this looks ideal. Rhyme Nor Rhythum has earned a crack at this Saturday race after racing well in his three provincial starts to date. He worked home well to finish third at Ipswich last start, so expect an improved performance here.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Comic Story

 

Race: 7- HAMILTON HOTEL QTIS PLATE

Date: 30/7
Time: 4:17pm
Location: Doomben

A rare two and three-year-old combined race with a capacity field leaves us with lots of angles to play with. Most Important was disappointing as odds-on favourite last start at Eagle Farm. The good track should help, and you have to respect the market’s judgement. Colinelle has won three of his four career starts and looks very well placed here. He is awkwardly drawn, but this isn’t the toughest race. River Racer is the only two-year-old and comes here third-up. She is yet to win but does get the weight advantage.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Colinelle

 

Race: 8- BRC MEMBERSHIP HANDICAP

Date: 30/7
Time: 4:53pm
Location: Doomben

Mr Epic is looking for his third straight win after two good wins at Rocky and Eagle Farm. While he looks the best in the field, he is awkwardly drawn and is still equal top weight with the 3kg claim. Hard to know what to think of Sagaronne, who was good enough to race in the Thousand Guineas in the spring, but finished last by almost 50 lengths at the Gold Coast. She bounced back somewhat last start at Eagle Farm in a Listed race, and that run should win this. But she has only won twice in her career, and you are taking her on trust.

The Early Crows Top Tip: Mr Epic

AFL Team News – Round 19

Bulldogs Battered by Injuries

The Western Bulldogs’ chances of an away upset in their Friday night blockbuster against Geelong have taken a major hit with the injury-enforced absence of five key players: Matthew Boyd, Matt Suckling, Mitch Wallis, Jack Redpath and Dale Morris.

They have, however, received some relief in the form of returning stars Jake Stringer and Luke Dahlhaus. The Cats have made just one change, with Zac Smith returning to the line-up.

North Melbourne have received a massive boost ahead of their crunch encounter with St Kilda, with gun forward Jarrad Waite returning from injury in a match where Kangaroos great Brent Harvey breaks the all-time AFL appearances record with his 427th appearance.

Despite taking a mark-of-the-year contender last week, Majak Daw is the player to make way for Waite.

Matthew Pavlich also enjoys a major milestone, playing his 350th game as one of three players brought back into the Fremantle side for their clash with heavyweight Sydney.

The Swans get co-captain Jarrad McVeigh back from injury.
