Golden Slipper 2017 Field

Race Time: 4:10 pm
March 18, 2017

1200m Race at Rosehill Racecourse

1. Pariah (4)
J: Blake Shinn
T: P & P Snowden
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 7th
Odds: $13
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Looked the winner of the Blue Diamond when asked by Shinn but just had no answers for Catchy. That was his GF, but has come through that run well. Leading chance for sure.
2. Veranillo (11)
J: Brenton Avdulla
T: John O'Shea
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 10th
Odds: $41
Rating:

Now
COMMENT: IMO he is the second seed behind Trekking for the Slipper. Been racing okay, but he just lacks the killer punch at this level. I'll be surprised if he wins.
3. Trapeze Artist (5)
J: Tim Clark
T: Gerald Ryan
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 15th
Odds: $35
Rating:

Now
COMMENT: Flattering Black Opal win IMO. They walked in front and it was really suited for those near the speed, which he was. I'll be surprised if he remains in front of Trekking.
4. Single Bullet (3)
J: Tye Angland
T: Gary Portelli
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 5th
Odds: $31
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Really liked his win in the Pago Pago last Saturday. Toughed it out very strongly after being ridden upside down due to circumstances. Can see him getting a sweet trip off the pace and he will be strong late. Really warming to his chances.
5. Diamond Tathagata (7)
J: Glyn Schofield
T: Mark Newnham
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 14th
Odds: $34
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: Fought on strongly to win the Skyline. Form has been franked via Single Bullet. My worry with him is that there a few more nippy than him here. He looks a more Sires/Champagne horse.
6. Trekking (18)
J: William Buick
T: John O'Shea
W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 3rd
Odds: $36
Rating:
Bet
Now
COMMENT: He's the one for me at the price. I am amazed he was on the drift after his Black Opal effort. I thought the run was outstanding given the tempo was against him, he was first up off one soft trial and did plenty wrong. He'll eat up the 1200m and is a winner at Rosehill. The negative is the wide gate.

W: 56.5kg
Prediction: 12th
Odds: $21
Rating:

COMMENT: Tipped by many as the Slipper winner after a couple of starts, the second being an unlucky second behind Pariah. But his Todman run was very disappointing, albeit with excuses. Can't have him here.
9. Catchy (8)
J: Craig Williams
T: D, B & T Hayes & Dabernig
W: 54.5kg
Prediction: 2nd
Odds: $5.50
Rating:

COMMENT: Wasn't sure what to make of the Blue Diamond form, but it was well and truly franked last weekend, and the manner in which she won, tells me she will love this assignment. Stable are low flying.
10. Formality (2)
J: Ryan Moore
T: D, B & T Hayes & Dabernig
W: 54.5kg
Prediction: 9th
Odds: $34
Rating:

COMMENT: Strong effort in the Blue Diamond, but was no match late for stablemate Catchy. Can she turn the tables? No, but a top ten chance for sure with the right run.

COMMENT: The seven day back up hasn't been successful in the past, but I was very impressed by her Magic Night win last Saturday. Looked to have upside left, and she was game in the Blue Diamond.

J: Ben Melham
T: Gary Portelli
W: 54.5kg
Prediction: 11th
Odds: $7.50
Rating:

Now
COMMENT: I have been keen to lay her for this race for a while now, and I am sticking solid with that sentiment. Looked to have every chance to my eye in the Reisling. I think she is just a pure speed horse. Will, I repeat, will, struggle at 1200m.
13. Frolic (17)
J: Tommy Berry
T: Michael Freedman
W: 54.5kg
Prediction: 6th
Odds: $8.50
Rating:

Now
COMMENT: Didn't make much of her Inglis Classic win, but wowee what a performance in the Reisling. Yes she found the A ground, but that turn of foot was electric. She'll love a brutal 1200m, and we know she will be strong late.
14. Teaspoon (14)
J: Zac Purton
T: Michael Freedman
W: 54.5kg
Prediction: 8th
Odds: $41

COMMENT: I thought her effort in the Sweet Embrace against the bias was very good. Got out into the worst ground and just couldn't pick up, but she was very strong late. Doubt she can win, but she will acquit herself very well.

J: Jeff Lloyd

COMMENT: Star speedster and IMO the one to beat. Blitzed them with sustained speed in the Magic Millions, then toyed with them at Eagle Farm with 63kg. She'll lead them and give them something to think about. Will look the winner for a long way and most likely will be. Don't worry about the wide gate.

COMMENT: Well backed to win the Black Opal but didn't really fire a shot despite having a nice sit off the pace. His saving grace is that he got very close to Houtzen in the Magic Millions.
