The Punters Guide returns after a good day yesterday, with multiple winners and missing the quaddie by half a head. We have a strong list of competitive races for the Kalgoorlie Punters Guide today – lets pick the diamonds from the quartz. Our last guide can be found HERE
Race 1 – TOM CULLEN MEMORIAL HANDICAP 1100m
Small field of runners here, with one horse that is in the upper echelon compared to the rest and gets the fish on board in Jason Whiting. Cosmic Eyes is coming in off the back of a dominating win at Kalgoorlie where it kicked away from the field early on and never relented. Expect to see a similar ride here again today. Cosmic Eyes should just be too good.
Top Pick – Cosmic Eyes
Race 2 – REECE PLUMBING KALGOORLIE MAIDEN 1400m
This race, things begin to get a lot more interesting at Kalgoorlie. Mitch Pateman has proved deadly over this distance at this track, and, has a horse that has been knocking on the door, but, just can’t seem to close it out. Let Me Pass gets the benefit of the doubt here and the form that Pateman is in, should be able to get the job done today. North Col is the next best here, and, is good value at the time of writing. Has shown good late speed and gets William Pike in the saddle, which is a big upgrade. This horse enjoys running near the back of the pack, a position where Pike does his best work. Expect a bold run. Value point in this race is with Polite Pass, who has been racing well under Lucy Warwick and the same should be expected again here today. Has the ability.
Top Pick – Let Me Pass
Next Best – North Col
Longshot – Polite Pass
Race 3 – COOLGARDIE TYRE SERVICE HANDICAP 1400m
William Pike will be hanging for this ride today. Nashville Cat has shown what it is capable of previously, but, has hit a bit of a winless purple patch over its last four starts, including a disappointing fifth last start. Against a less competitive field here today and will be given every chance to prove doubters wrong today. Top hope. Chhaya is one of the main dangers here. Jockey and horse have combined previously for a win at this track and distance, and are very close in getting back to that form here. Expected to go close again today. Value point in this race is back with Mitch Pateman who has a shot at the race to race double here on Omerta. Peter Fernie doesn’t put horses in a race that don’t have a reasonable shot at it, and, Omerta is at good value here and has the form as well as the form jockey. A win wouldn’t shock should Nashville Cat not find its best.
Top Pick – Nashville Cat
Next Best – Chhaya
Longshot – Omerta
Race 4 – TAPS INDUSTRIES HANDICAP 1200m
Indriel is one of the best hopes on the day for Lucy Warwick, and, with a field that is as open as this one – will have every chance here. Ran on strongly for a second at this track and distance last start, winner at track and distance previously and at its best – can beat this field. Little Hercules disappointed last start when finishing fifth, but, can do better here. This field is as open as it gets here today, all rate well, but, Little Hercules will get the run of the race and will just need to show a little more heart when running on today. Foxy Royale ran on well behind Cosmic Eyes last start, and, a run similar to that, can be good enough here. Good value at the time of writing, and, under Autier, can find its best.
Top Pick – Indriel
Next Best – Little Hercules
Longshot/Value – Foxy Royale
Race 5 – SHIRE OF COOLGARDIE HANDICAP 1300m
Back on the Pateman train here with Where’s Wally saddling up for this one. Coming in fresh here, winner fresh previously and has shown that it can run fast at this distance. Drawn perfectly here and will be able to ride how it wants – most likely towards the back and will come home strong. Our Detention is the next best here with Willy Pike riding. Ran a strong second last start, but, distance looked a bit much, loses half a furlong here and will be better for it. Value point in the race here goes with A Bit Sketchy, who is second up here today, and, looked good firstup last race, but, will be fitter here. Can go close.
Top Pick – Where’s Wally
Next Best – Our Detention
Longshot – A Bit Sketchy
Race 6 – HAHN ELECTRICL COOLGARDIE CUP 1760m
This race maps as an absolute quaddie killer with a number of real chances in the race. There are some real chances at value as well as a standout shorter. The top pick here though has to go with the in-form Friaresque, who is coming into this one on the back second and third respectively, and, with the extra distance given here today, can go better. Expect a bold run. Value point in this one has to go to Lucy Warwick and Rojo Calor. Strong second over this distance at this track with today’s jockey. Expected to go well again here. Oorah is a quality horse, and, is getting its chance again here today. Misfired last start as favourite, and, finds a slightly more challenging field then last. Has shown great turn of foot previously and has won at this distance and class previously. Win wouldn’t shock.
Top Pick – Friaresque
Next Best – Rojo Calor
Longshot – Oorah
Race 7 – MORAN’S STORE HANDICAP 1300m
The Durrant stables have taken a chance with Bollinger Boy here, targeting a race that is a significant drop in class, and will have William Pike on-board here. This duo map very well for this race and, on class, sectionals and distance, rate on top for this one. One to beat. Value point here could be with the ultra impressive Smartravella, who bolted home last start getting a gun run on the rail throughout. Drawn well again here and a win wouldn’t shock. Mitch Pateman rounds out the field here with Urquell, who hasn’t shown its best over last few races, a seventh and a sixth over last two, one can be forgiven with poor start and running in to traffic, other, just didn’t look interested in the race. Gets the benefit of the doubt here and gets a big upgrade in the saddle.
Top Pick – Bollinger Boy
Next Best – Smartravella
Longshot – Urquell
