Toowoomba Weetwood day 24/09

I’ve just had a look at the Quaddie today but probably not in as much depth as I normally would at any meeting. I’m struggling to back a winner interstate and today doesn’t look a great day to do so.

R6 RAVAGED AWARD Is scratched from an earlier race to run in this harder one. After the claim it only has 50.5kg and it won here two back by more than 6 lengths in her Queensland debut. She was in good form down in Victoria before that and comes back from a mile race today. The question is can she win in this class but I think the $8.50 price is good enough to find out from a good barrier. RUBAMOS does look quite well served with her weight also coming off a win and is the logical favourite. I BB’d GAVE US UP off his first up run at Doomben. He was quite good late in that race and is a good price here albeit a horror barrier.

R7 (Cup)- I really don’t like this race at all but my gut tells me AUSSIE NUGGET is well weighted coming off a win on the minimum. He does have a third in a Canberra Cup on his resume. Other than that I have little to suggest other than the topweight Bartholomeu Dias is going really well surprisingly so on dry tracks too. WELSH LEGEND (namesake lol) probably prefers it dry and it’s best form is good enough. The last run wasn’t though. The other chances are indicated by the betting market seemingly.

R8 EMERALD KINGDOM appeals to me with his superb second up record (5/8 despite the change of stable. He did beat Apache Kingdom at WFA last preparation off a similar beaten margin first up. Certainly that last run was nothing to write home about but at nice double figure odds he is worth an investment. FLYING CRAZY does look the one in a fantastic first up stable. His best form might suggest he is too good for this lot who probably aren’t capable of winning much beyond this class. He probably is but the price now is probably too short. $4+ I was happy with but didn’t take unfortunately.

R9 Just about a pin job this race but with the claim FOR MY ANNIE looks well weighted. It is 5/6 here and the defeat was less than half a length. It meets Be Water My Friend 8kg better for a less than two length defeat three starts back and Maya Bay 6kg better for a 3.45 length defeat two starts ago. None of those runs were at it’s favourite track and both those horses are a shorter price. The problem is that might be the wrong formline to go on. Nevertheless $20+ gets me in.
