Big 6 – April 30
Last week’s Big 6 found another 2 winners with Taksu (2.45) and Extreme Warrior (2.00) leaving us a couple of units short of break even.
Onto this week:
Sandown R6 #6 YOUNG LIAM (each-way)
Sandown R7 #2 BELLE SAVOIR
Sandown R8 #5 REGARDSMAREE
Hawkesbury R5 #9 NAJMATY
Eagle Farm R8 #2 COUNT DE RUPEE
Morphettville R7 #10 GLINT OF HOPE (Place)
R6 #6 YOUNG LIAM (each-way) Finished 3rd last start in BM78 over 1100 behind CLEMENCEAU who looks a horse going places. He carried 60.5kgs there and drops to 57.5kgs here. He has 3 wins from 6 starts this prep and is drawn favorably to lead again. Back to the 1000 is ideal and Jordan Childs rides again. The only slight negative is a wet track if the predicted rain comes. Our man in Melbourne
R7 #2 BELLE SAVOIR
3rd up here, may have been flat 2nd up off a long spell. had a jumpout leading into this and McNeil goes on.
R8 #5 REGARDSMAREE
Back to best last week running over some very good sprinters at 1200m, have to say 1400m suits him better if anything. Wet no issue.
R5 #9 NAJMATY It’s an even race. She had 3 trials before her win when resuming at Caulfield which was a top run. Our man in Sydney
R8 #2 COUNT DE RUPEE
Was well beaten in his first 2 runs at the elite level, the G1 Newamrket 1200 and G1 TJ Smith 1200 but returned to form with a good 2nd in the G3 Hallmark 1200 behind KEMENTARI last start. This fellow was a game 2nd to I’M THINDERSTRUCK in the Golden Eagle last prep. From barrier 1 he should be able to box seat here and with racing fitness on his side, looks a good chance at the $5.50 on offer.

R7 #10 GLINT OF HOPE (Place)
Most promising Busuttin/Young trained Deep Impact filly that appears trained to the minute for this most suitable race. All three runs this time in terrific, winning effortlessly first-up, before also catching the eye placing in two subsequent runs. Two starts back was just pipped late by My Whisper that has opened up favourite. Here however our selection meets My Whisper a whopping 4kg better. Primed for this with another lovely strong-finishing placing last start. Rise to this trip ideal whilst maps to do no work. Another that rates a great each-way bet to nothing at the opening $12.
