WEDNESDAY 09 JANUARY 2018 – Canterbury

Rail: +6m Entire

MAKE ‘EM CRY (Race 1, 1:50pm, 1550 metres, No. 1, jockey Tim Clark, 61kg)

Make ‘Em Cry (Exceed And Excel/Tears I Cry) three-year old bay gelding. Make ‘Em Cry is primed to get back to his winning ways with Tim Clark aboard. Our gelding is on the quick back up and the step up in trip should suit as he is rock hard fit. He has freshened up nicely heading in to this run and we are expecing a competitive performance come race day. Each way chance.

GRAND FINALIST (Race 6, 4:55pm, 1250 metres, No. 4, jockey Tom Marquand, 59kg)

Grand Finalist (Wanted/National Anthem) five-year old chestnut gelding. Grand Finalist gets back to the races over 1250 metres with Tom Marquand in the irons. This gelding's fitness has come on nicely after three solid trials this time in. The distance suits first up, he rates well in this field and he should put his best foot forward come race day. Each way chance.

WHITELEY (Race 6, 4:55pm, 1250 metres, No. 12, jockey Tim Clark, 56kg)

Whiteley (Sebring/Exquisite Art) three-year old bay gelding. Whiteley has improved in leaps and bounds following his first up run. The gelding has taken much needed fitness from the effort, he has tightened up nicely and looks a treat heading into today. Whiteley will appreciate the slight step up in distance and the run will only aid his improvement moving forward. He looks the part heading in to this race and we expect to see a big showing. Strong each-way chance.

LUSKINTYRE LASS (Race 7, 5:35pm, 1200 metres, No. 4, jockey Tommy Berry, 58.5kg)

Luskintyre Lass (Snitzel/Gold Fortune) four-year old chestnut mare. Luskintyre Lass is ready to step up to the 1200 metres  with Tommy Berry aboard. The mare had been off the scene for a long time and she gained good fitness from her first up run. She will improve as she gets over even further this preparation, but this is a perfect race for her and we are confident she will be right there in the finish come race day. Each way chance.

WIDE SPREAD PANIC (Race 7, 5:35pm, 1200 metres, No. 5, jockey Tim Clark, 58.5kg)

Wide Spread Panic (Fastnet Rock/Flying Object) four-year old bay mare. With three solid trials under her belt this time in, the mare heads to the race nice and fit and feeling fresh in herself.  She will only benefit from the run and getting over further this preparation but this is an ideal starting point for her. Each way chance.

 

WEDNESDAY 09 JANUARY 2018 – Caulfield

Rail: Out 12m Entire Circuit

FEARLESS GIRL (Race 2, 4:30pm, 1440 metres, No. 2, apprentice Zac Spain, 60.5kg)

Fearless Girl (All Too Hard/Daly River) three-year old bay filly. Fearless Girl rates well in this field of three year old fillies. Our filly ran a very encouraging race last start at Flemington, she has taken huge improvement from her two runs this time in and we’ve never seen her look stronger. Fearless Girl looks the part and we think she will prove hard to run down. Winning chance.

AURORA ROSE (Race 8, 7:30pm, 2000 metres, No. 5, apprentice Zac Spain, 58kg)

Aurora Rose (Northern Meteor/Centashani) five-year old bay or brown mare. Aurora Rose has been a bit of a conundrum this preparation. She has the class and talent to bring the house down in this race, she is rock hard fit and the track at Caulfield will suit. She looks incredible and is a happy mare, so we are expecing an improved performance today. Each way chance.
