Our Beatnik (Warwick Farm Race 7, No.8)
Our Beatnik is a mare worth sticking with says The Wolf. This ex-Kiwi made a big impression on her Aussie debut at Scone ending the unbeaten sequence of Torpenhow. Behind them were Invinzabeel and Hand From Above and both have fought out the finish at their subsequent run. Looks as though the mile will suit and drawn very soft in barrier 2. Chris Waller is very good at getting these New Zealand imports to string a few wins together.
Hostwin Legend (Doomben Race 4, No.1)
The form guide reads fifth last start but he was never on the track from the wide draw and to finish as close as he did, was very encouraging. Three back he bumped into two of the better juveniles in the country in Astern and El Divino before beating Irish Sea at Hawkesbury. He has drawn wide again today which is some concern but with even luck he should take care of this grade of horse. Like the way the Gary Moore stable is going about their business at the moment too.
Colour Drops (Warwick Farm Race 6, No.15)
This mare couldn’t have been more impressive on debut at Hawkesbury. She came from last and stopped the clock at a very slick 56.27s over the 1000m journey. She then stepped out at Newcastle and despite being crunched into an odds-on pop, she raced flat to finish midfield. Forgive her that. She was tipped out for a three month spell after that and has tuned up with a trial win since. From barrier 5, she should be within striking distance to round these up.
Baby Don’t Cry (Ballarat Race 6, No.6)
This four-year-old was very good at Caulfield last start, giving a big sight against the likes of Olivier and My Poppette. There are no gallopers of that calibre to worry about back to BM70 midweek grade. She should lob into the box seat from barrier 4 and won maiden on wet track the only time she has raced on it so that shouldn’t hold any fears.
My Fair Lady (Warwick Farm Race 5, No.17)
This mare is going to pop up at big odds this campaign. Mark The Wolf’s words. She ran sixth first-up but there was merit in the run as she lost touch over 1100m but picked up late to run very sharp closing splits. She has drawn a horror barrier here but if he gets the breaks, she is capable of getting into the money. With the scratchings of the Waller pair Ciarlet and Harlem Lady, this race has opened right up.
3,6,8 / 7,10,15,17 / 7,15 / 6,8.
