A two-year-old who impressed at his first start in much harder company looms as the best bet on a heavy track at Albury on Tuesday.
Race 1 No. 4: Kelvedon Road
Gave a great account of himself at his debut when running fourth to subsequent Black Opal Preview winner Pretty Woman. Has talent.
Race 3 No. 1: Mulofdubai
Mitchell Beer-trained local who is ready to peak now third-up while looking for the mile. Should handle the conditions.
Race 4 No. 3: Seventh Seal
Brother to First Seal who was one 5-nil over Winx. This gelding flashed up late when third to the handy Eurosay at Wagga when resuming. Has won second-up.
Race 4: 3,8,10
Race 5: 1,5,6
Race 6: 2,9,10,11
Race 7: 1,3
JOCKEY TO FOLLOW
Jordan Mallyon has some good winning prospects on the day and could be a chance of winning the TAB Jockeys Challenge
TRAINER TO FOLLOW
Mitchell Beer is hard to beat anywhere, most of all at home at Albury where his army of fans will be out in force.
Race 4 No. 11: Exhibitor
Trainer Daniel Bowen labelled her ‘a coming winner’ and easy to see why judging on her form to date. Gets her big chance today.
Race 3 No. 10: Miss Piermont
Still a maiden after 19 runs but has placed eight times and more often than not, her pattern has played against her. Might be her day today.
Race 5 No 4: Beef Week Princess
Above average filly from the Daniel Bowen stable who is crying out for the 1590m today and has a touch of quality about her.
LATE MAIL – ALBURY
Seventh Seal is a brother to First Seal. This son of Fastnet Rock started out life in High Street at Randwick but has been with Mitchell Beer for a little while now and done some good things. Put the writing on the wall for a third career win today with that eye-catching first-up run at Wagga. Claptone has his first run for new trainer Craig Weeding here after running a distant second for Matthew Dunn at Grafton on June 27. Only win was on a heavy track. Underthespotlight is in the mix.
Bet: Seventh Seal win
Mitchell Beer-trained Forsureyousay was a $3.90 to $6 drifter when he made his debut in a 1200m maiden at Wagga on the Heavy 9 on June 5, and was OK running fifth on the day. Back home for this with all the natural improvement available to him from the trip away. If You Say So made ground at Echuca over 1100m last start coming back from 1200m. Up to 1400m is the key. My Lady Waltz has drawn barrier 1 and the step up in trip could assist her. Slino Queen has claims.
Bet: Forsureyousay win, exacta 1 to beat 5
Tumut gelding Deemed Corrupt is only a little fellow; 14.2 hands from all reports. What he lacks in size he makes up for in pace, but even he wasn’t quick enough to offset his wide barrier at Gundagai last start. Go much better here from box 2 with Kayla Nisbet up. Full Circle has the 4kgs off for a real up and coming young apprentice in Molly Bourke. Never far away from the action, be it in the run or at the finish. Keep It Down has run some decent races and is not out of it.
Bet: Deemed Corrupt each-way, box trifecta 2,9,10,11
Mitchell Beer’s huge army of fans could have a big day should Packer’s Bond turn up at his barnstorming best here. The son of Dundeel finished like Bernborough and still got beaten at Wagga before a ripper run in the Highway on June 26. Funnily enough, the horse that denied him at Wagga is also here namely Willybeafactor who charged every bit as fast and from as far back as Beer’s horse that afternoon. Go well again. Okra is a last start winner carrying 61.5kgs no less.
Bet: Packer’s Bond win, quinella 1,3
Trainer Daniel Bowen labelled Exhibitor ‘a coming winner’ when we spoke to him and it’s hard not to agree. The daughter of Exosphere made up many lengths in an 1175m race at Grafton last Sunday – the Big Maiden no less – and that should just top her off perfectly for today’s rise in trip. Cefalu ran quite well over 1401m last start also at Grafton – and on a wet track – and being by Adelaide, the 1590m should play into his hands. Ditto for McKeeghan who is very fit and drawn well (again).
Bet: Exhibitor win, exacta 11 to beat 2
Daniel Bowen has a good opinion of Beef Week Princess and rightfully so. She came from a seemingly hopeless position to win her maiden – beating the aforementioned Exhibitor at home at Lismore and had genuine excuses for going under at Grafton. On the back-up and up to a trip that she should relish. John Shelton’s Great Marlow is a handy type who comes off a creditable fourth at home at Grafton on Independence Day. Respect. Camp Rifle should be able to prominently again here and can easily figure.
Bet: Beef Week Princess win
Daniel Bowen again, this time with the Domesday son Picton. This horse has only won two from 26 but importantly, one of those infrequent wins was as recently as his last start at this very same venue. Can go back to back with Ben Looker to do him all the favours. Satine has no real wet form to speak of but she has run some good races against some handy types, not least Bowen’s own Amirakal one day at Grafton. Speaking of Bowen, he also saddles-up Pumps here – a cleverly named son of Jimmy Choux (think shoes).
Bet: Picton win, box trifecta 4,5,6,8
Not entirely sure that the Matthew Dunn-trained Catch A Thought will back-up here after running at Grafton on Sunday but she turned in a good effort that day and has a nice alley for a change. If she weren’t to arrive, it would open the door for Daniel Bowen to win all four legs of the Quaddie, which would be something! Bowen saddles-up a nice enough filly here in Mullumova who ran a mighty race on debut; sure she was fifth over the line but it was 1210m on debut and it was only condition that beat her. Back to 1000m is a huge positive. Allusive Eye showed speed on debut but got swamped late. Fitter and Ben Looker sticks.
Bet: Catch A Thought win or if scratched, Mullumova win
