$100 Win Funstar R3 @ $3.8 (TAB)
Canterbury Overview: Can be a trap making a first starter, especially in town, a good thing, but I’ll be doing that with Funstar. As you can tell by the name and colours, she’s a half to Oaks winner Youngstar and she looks well above average based on how she went in her Rosehill trial win, her first trial this prep. Was bolting behind the speed before angling to the inside and under no pressure at all, she took the front and I just loved the way she went about her business. Think she’s pretty smart and can easily see her winning in town on debut and progressing to better things.
$100 Win Sacred Day R4 (Tote)
Doomben Overview: Another good thing of the day is Sacred Day but unlikely to get anything flash re odds. Tony Pike trains this talented gelding, who resumed over 1600m at the track a couple of weeks ago and really just had no hope after being tardy away. The leader/winner went 62 seconds for the first 1000m and when it’s running home in a tick over 34, those from the back had no chance, including Sacred Day, and I actually thought his run had plenty of merit. Good second up record, up to 2000m, no real depth engaged. Should win, but not expecting anything flash.
$50 E/W Deimos R8 (Tote)
Belmont Overview: Was hoping we could get some decent double figures about this son of Planet Five but $5 opening price seems very short. He sat back in a trial at Lark Hill last week under Randy Tan before peeling wider on the turn and under no riding, he closed off really strongly to run a narrow second to the handy sprinter Double Jeopardy. His best form is at 1600m+, but a first up win wouldn’t totally shock based on this piece of work and he does find a winnable race to resume in.
