The Big 6!

It’s been a tough start to the Spring Carnival for the Big 6, no winners again last week with an each-way 2nd on Wasabi Bob, the best we could do.

Onto this week:

CAULFIELD

R3 #2 LOVING GABY

Was beaten favourite in both the Sires and the Champagne at G1 level at the back end of her 2YO campaign, she resumed at the Valley two weeks ago and ran on hard from the back to score. She looks to have come back well and has the versatility aspect as well, she was a winner here at the track on debut in February.

R7 #7 HOMESMAN

I’m sticking with HOMESMAN through the Spring, his win fresh was outstanding. He backed it up when beaten as favourite last time, sat wide no cover, made a long run and was still strong through the line. I think Melham will settle him closer and take the luck out of it today.

RANDWICK
R2 #12 MASTER OF WINE

Gets in well with just the 53.5 kgs here, he is still yet to win out of maiden grade but has been running on well. He has had two starts back this prep, both here at the track and has placed after hitting the line well, beaten under a length both times.

R5 #1 MICROPHONE

I am very confident that MICROPHONE (1) is the best of the day resuming. He was runner-up in the Slipper before winning the Sires at G1 level, then went to the paddock. He has been given a quiet trial but I think he will be just too classy for these fresh.

R8 #3 THE INEVITABLE
Ran down pure 1000m horse fresh then sustained long, wide run and charged away from Deprive, that horse was as good as anything in fast G1 Rupert Clarke. 1300m ideal. Wet no worries. To pick/ Good horse. (Oz Racing Form)
MORPHETTVILLE
R3 #6 STAR STATUS

MacDonald/Gluyas trained four year old gelding that improved leaps and bounds last campaign when more than competitive against Black-type company including a placing in the Listed Port Adelaide Guineas last campaign. Resumed on Saturday when a well supported favourite and although never really threatened, was still clearly seen to be doing his best work late when eventually beaten less than just half a length. Trial leading into his first-up run was also a good indicator he had returned as well as ever. Second-up run when last in work was a ripper when just missing behind the more than handy Tongsai Boss when stepped up to the mile. Appears ideally placed dropping back to this just moderate BM 66 affair. Rates the days best bet at the opening $3.70.
