Ocean Billy Information

Auckland Cup winner so a staying trip will be no issue. The issue is the class. The NZ form, overall, is rank. The saving grace is that he is with Chris Waller. Wouldn’t be totally shocked if he ran top ten, but looking elsewhere.

Career Stats: 25: 7-1-1
Min/Max Distance Wins: 1400m/3200m
Career Best Win: Auckland Cup, March 13 2021, Ellerslie, Good Surface
Dry Track Stats: 14: 6-0-1
Wet Track Stats: 11: 1-1-0
Short Summary: He wasn’t terrible in the Caulfield Cup, but needs to improve big time.

Auckland Cup (3200m), March 13 2021, Ellerslie, Clockwise Direction, Good Surface

This is what he is capable of when getting dry ground out in trip. Admittedly this was two miles, but he was a strong winner and did beat Sir Charles Road, a horse who has run well in Australia previously, so the form isn’t the worst.

Handicap (1600m), October 1 2021, Te Rapa, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

Pretty much a prep run after a couple of down the track efforts in WFA races. Lumped 60kg and was beaten just over a length in a good effort for a horse that is clearly better suited over further.

(Replay Unavailable)

Caulfield Cup (2400m), October 16 2021, Caulfield, Anti-Clockwise Direction, Soft Surface

He was 1600m to 2400m in two weeks and didn’t disgrace himself despite being the rank outsider. Finished midfield, which was certainly above market expectation.
