It’s a case of ‘which way to look’ for Owners in The Racing League over the next week, with 6 runners across three states.

  • Greylander: Wednesday, Nov 23 – Doomben

Good luck to all Owners and now let’s check out the major chances of your TRL Trainers this Saturday.

 

KIM WAUGH STANDS FIRM WITH SIDENAY

Trainer Kim Waugh hasn’t lost faith in Sidenay who’s been luckless in his three starts so far. 

He continues to work well and has come through his torrid run at Gosford in good order. 

He’s a $30 chance at Gosford with Kim declaring, “there looks to be plenty of speed outside him so we will be positive and try and slot in”.

Kim has a horse who’s been good to us in Bethencourt (Race 6 Gosford) who did nothing first-up but has an outstanding second-up record. He’s tight in the market at $2.40 but should win. 

BET: Sidenay – Each Way  (Gosford Race 3)

BET: Bethencourt- Win  (Gosford Race 6)

 

FREEDMAN’S TO THE FORE

Richard and Will Freedman continue to be happy with the progress of Luna Rocks with the ultimate target Magic Millions day on the Gold Coast. 

On Saturday at Kembla Grange, they have two strong chances in Amathuba (Race 5) and Juan Diva (Race 7). 

Amathuva, has been supported from $13 to $9, she’s first-up but has plenty of ability. 

Juan Diva, is a talented filly, who’s also been specked in early markets at $9 possesses a tremendous second-up record but needs a gem of a ride from Tommy Sherry to overcome barrier 14. 

BET: Amathuba – Each Way (Kembla Race 5)

BET: Juan Diva – Each Way (Kembla Race 7)

 

GAI AND ADRIAN TO ROCK THE GONG

The Waterhouse/Bott stable is in great form. 

Vreneli (Race 6) has won a couple of trials and with Tim Clark on board from gate 1 should go to the front and improve his position. 

Riodini (Race 8) two runs this prep have been okay, is now stepping up to 1600m and $10 can entertain a small wager. 

BET: Vreneli – Each Way (Kembla Race 6)

BET: Riodini – Each Way (Kembla Race 8)

 

CIARON AND DAVE STRONG AGAIN

Ciaron Maher and Dave Eustace will have winners this Saturday. The trick is with so many runners finding the right horses. 

At Kembla, Nugget (Race 9) looks a nice play, he’s won 4 of 12, and is coming off a good second to Detonator Jack. 

Unanimous (Race 5) had no luck at Flemington is up in the weights here but capable. 

Detonator Jack (Race 10) looks like a good thing to me, 4 wins from 5 starts tells you he’s pretty good. 

BET: Nugget – Each Way (Kembla Race 9)

BET: Unanimous – Each Way (Ballarat Race 5)

BET: Detonator Jack – Win (Ballarat Race 10)

 

HAYES HEADS TO BALLARAT CONFIDENT

The Hayes camp are now sending Bellinger to Wodonga next Friday and are confident of a result. 

At Ballarat, Elteecee (Race 7) is quoted at $14, he did win well at Moonee Valley two starts back and with Ollie in the saddle happy to have something each way. 

Nicolini Vito (Race 9) has been well supported from $12 to $9. Its last couple of runs have been solid and is ready to run a race. 

BET: Elteecee – Each Way (Ballarat Race 7)

BET: Nicolin Vito – Each Way (Ballarat Race 9)

 

GOLLAN READY TO GO GREY

Can’t wait for Tony Gollan to produce Greylander next Wednesday at Doomben his last trial was great and he looks an exciting prospect. 

At Doomben, narrowed Tony’s runners down to just one, Golden Boom who’s an odds on favourite so let’s go the quinella with his other runner All That Pizzazz.

BET: Golden Boom/All That Pizzazz Quinella – (Doomben Race 5)

 

O’DEA/HOYSTED BETTER GET SET

Won’t be that long before Helluva Barty is back in the O’Dea/Hoysted yard with the team still bullish about an Autumn campaign. 

At Doomben, Fleetwood Maca (Race 6) should be able to get the gun run from barrier 1 with Ben Thompson on board and go close to back to back wins for his new stable. 

Better Get Set (Race 9) has been smashed in early markets, she won well at Eagle Farm last start and is another who can go back to back. 

BET: Fleetwood Maca –  Each Way (Doomben Race 6)

BET: Better Get Set – Each Way (Doomben Race 9)

 

ROB HEATHCOTE HAS ONE AT VALUE 

Rob Heathcote is excited about The Big Goodbye and his upcoming campaign targeting the $11.5 million Magic Millions day on the Gold Coast. 

At Doomben, Flying Rothe (Race 4) has been backed from $13 to $11 good odds considering he is coming off a win with Jaden Lloyd needing some luck from barrier 10. 

BET: Flying Rothe – Each Way (Doomben Race 4) 

 

Good luck and good punting.
