Big 5 (Sat)

Big 5 – January 8

A Big 5 this week with the last week of “holidays”, back to the Big 6 next week 🙂

Onto this week:

:one: Caulfield R4 #5 MARINE ONE
:two: Caulfield R6 #2 DARK DREAM
:three: Caulfield R8 #9 IT’SOURTIME

:four: Rosehill R5 #4 LACKEEN
:five: Gawler R8 #1 SECRET WAR

CAULFIELD

R4 #5 MARINE ONE

In top form since joining Maher/Eustace stable winning 3 of last 4 at Swan Hill, Moonee Valley and Pakenham. Drawn wide but 2kg off for Richards is handy.

Our man in Melbourne

R6 #2 DARK DREAM

Looked the winner on the line last start in the Werribee Cup over 2000m after being slightly held up for a run but was just piped in the photo. An ex Hong Kong horse that might be thriving now in the open spaces at Lindsay Park. He is proven on soft ground has good stats at this distance and maps to stalk the leaders. Hasn’t won for 143 weeks but is a big chance of breaking the drought in this race.

R8 #9 IT’SOURTIME

Top return win with weight then looked home latest but was nailed by Not To Be Mist who was then 3-wide/ excellent last week in (fast) Lighthouse race. They gapped the rest. To 1100m no issue. Sticking !!

(Oz Racing Form)

ROSEHILL

R5 #4 LACKEEN

Won a BM90 over 1400m first run this prep on Mlb Cup day and finished a credible 3rd in a BM88 over 1600m last start. Will likely roll forward and lead this with the only other leader in FASHCHANEL being scratched to run in an earlier race on this card. He has run 2nd at the track 3 times and placed 4 from 8 on soft tracks so will need to improve those stats to win here but looks to get every chance now.

GAWLER

R8 #1 SECRET WAR

Speedy type drawn ideally to jump straight on the bunny and give an awful big sight. Returned here this track/distance with a terrific all the way win before taking on tougher company last start when game in defeat. Drops back to BM60 company here whilst returns to home track over a trip he simply loves (4:3-0-1)…real keen!
