Big 6 – January 22
Last week’s Big 6 was a cracker! We found two winners (Halvorsen 8.20 and Isotope 3.40) giving us a profit of 5.6 units.
Onto this week:
Moonee Valley R5 #2 YULONG COMMAND
Moonee Valley R8 #11 IN THE BOAT
Randwick R1 #1 CAPITAL REIGN
Randwick R6 #4 TOOMUCHTOBEAR
Randwick R8 #11 HOLYFIELD
Gawler R3 #1 LADY DUNMORE
R5 #2 YULONG COMMAND
Has placed all 4 runs this time in including a win in this grade at this track over 955m. He placed 2nd behind the smart mare SCORCHED EARTH down the straight last run and that mare has since won again. He is hard fit and gets in well with the claim. On what looks a likely fast track, he should jump and sit outside the leader and be hard to run down.

R8 #11 IN THE BOAT
Racing terrifically. Had to do a lot of work from outside barrier last start. Looks to get a much better run here and could still be on the up.
R1 #1 CAPITAL REIGN
Had a great first prep, winning 3 races before coming to town and wasn’t disgraced. Recent trial winner

R6 #4 TOOMUCHTOBEAR
Fabulous return win in good time then too keen early latest (off moderate tempo) and that was costly! That was his first defeat on dry. Won 3rd-up last prep. Takes race by the neck here with senior rider and leads…?
R8 #11 HOLYFIELD Was just pipped at the post in the Magic Millions Cup over 1400m in a very fast run race behind ELEVEN ELEVEN. He’s on the quick back up here which he hasn’t tried before suggesting he came through that race well. The wide barrier should see him take a sit behind the speed here in what looks a race with a lot of leaders. The camp are inform and the $7.50 is appealing. Our man in Sydney
R3 #1 LADY DUNMORE
Phillip Stokes trained mare that has been racing in super honest form this campaign, with a number of extremely super unlucky efforts scattered amongst those efforts. Past two starts has been ridden more positively and was no coincidence to see her take full advantage of changed tactics when looked never in doubt two starts back. Now comes into this off ideal six week freshen-up whilst so hope Stable again elect to be positive early. If that’s the case expect class to prevail with opening $3.20 making plenty of early appeal.
