Race View: Another blink and you’ll miss it affair with Got The Giggles expected to show out early with Spirited Belle capable of early hustle too. NIVALIS showed the interstate switch had worked with a game runner up result first up at this track and trip. Fitter again here and finds a very winnable race. MONTALIS debuts for team Hawkes without showing too much in recent trials. Senior rider goes on though and must respect in a race without a lot of depth. SNIP N STARE gets straight to the races after winning his only trial to date. Senior rider engaged and expected to run well. Spirited Belle has gone down fighting at her past two starts and despite a thin overall record could sneak a place.

Damien Lane trained three-year-old filly lining up for first race start. Scored a win in a barrier trial at Wyong over 845m on October 22. Strong each way hope here.




Class: Class 1, Set Weight

7. Captain’s Legend (6) 56.5kg (BLKS)

T: D Lane (Wyong) LY: 350:25-45-33

J: M Bell LY: 553:72-67-74

Form Comments
Last start raced on speed throughout then 2nd of 10 runners at this track 4yo+ Mdn Nov 3 over 1850m, 2-1/4 len behind Lutreola with 59kg. The race before that jumped awkwardly; 5th of 9 runners at Wyong Mdn Oct 21 over 1600m, slow track; 8-1/2 len behind Jarhead carrying 59kg.

Race View: Stablemates Bring It Back and Just A Joke should be prominent early over a staying trip with some real one paced types engaged. SAINT KATARINE finds the right target third up from a break. Has found the line solidly in both provincial outings since resuming and rising to a trip that suits has plenty of appeal. BRING IT BACK sneaks back down in the weights and battled on fairly at just start number two at Canterbury last time out. Yet to race on a firm track and looks capable of better. LUTREOLA backs up quickly off a strong maiden win at this track last weekend and is proven at this type of journey. Should be handy to the speed and fitness no issue for him. FRONT VIEW can be forgiven a poor result last start off a tricky draw but his first up run was genuine enough. Drawn to get every chance.




Class: Maiden, C,G&E, Handicap


Trust the Fox (2) 3yoG

T: D Lane J: D McLellan (54kg)

Finished fifth last start at Scone.

Form Comments
Last run came from midfield; 5th of 11 runners at Scone E&G Mdn Oct 26 over 1300m, 2-1/2 len behind Master Of The Turf carrying 54kg. The run before that came from midfield; 5th of 8 runners at Wyong 3yo+ E&G Mdn Oct 11 over 1200m, slow track; 3-3/4 len behind Coterie with 54.5kg

Race View: Zeppelin should be straight onto the bit for the Waterhouse Bott team second up without much opposition on paper unless the stablemate goes that option too. BLACK SUNRISE kept working to the line honestly on debut and gets another furlong to follow home here. Drawn sweetly and any give in the track would be another tick. Stablemate Zeppelin is a long time maiden but has proved a versatile galloper to date. Placed first up and second up record is reliable enough. WRISTBAND worked home stoutly at this track and at a big price on debut for team Waller. Suited by the rise in trip and from a wide gate should be finding the line again. Talent Award didn’t find much on debut over a shorter trip but respect any market nibbles that way.
