Gosford 11th August 2016
The meeting at Gosford today sees the rail go out to the 4m position. Most “rail-out” positions at Gosford produce a fast lane against the rails, and the expectation is that Leaders on the fence and rails-in-run horses will be strongly favoured. Barrier 1 demands the utmost respect.
Glenn Pollett is sweet on a debutante in the opener at 12.35pm. MACKELLAR’S LOVE caught his eye at the Randwick trials, and the rider of the moment, Deanne Panya, is on board. He expects to get the program off to a flying start.
Race 3 #13 STRYKE A RANSOM (1.45pm) debuted on this course a fortnight back and was put to the sword by Joe Pride’s Sugar Bay Leonard (a hot contender in the 4.10pm today). With Team Hawkes favourite Larapineta possibly lacking early toe from a wide draw and Gerald Ryan’s touted debutante Oakfield Rickie starting out as a 5yo, Tim Clark may be able to steer Stryke A Ransom into a favourable in-run position
