Adam Page gives us his brief preview for today’s listed Hawkesbury Guineas at Hawkesbury racecourse, view his full race preview and selections.
Got to follow my money with Chasse. I thought his run at Randwick was very good after drifting back to the fence and battling on right to the line behind Lucha Libre. I think he is looking for the mile, but the heavy track over 1400m will make it feel like a mile which is in his favour. Josh Parr probably had the pick of the Snowden runners and he has gone with this one over the better class horse Giresun. He handles the heavy track and is sure to be in the finish.
Torio’s Quest needs to stand up here. He won the Magic Millions and the boom on him was huge after that, but ever since he has been a flop. He won’t get a better chance to show his true colours than here. It was a lacklustre effort in the Darby Munro behind Sea Lord but we all know he is much better than that. Has won on a slow track, will appreciate the 1400m and Bowman sticks with him.
Steps In Time is highly regarded by trainer John O’ Shea. She is being touted as a Stradbroke contender so if she is that good, she’d want to be winning this and winning well. Was very impressive on debut, before resuming in the P J Bell with a strong second behind Red Tracer after kicking in the straight and seemingly having the race won. She’ll get the gun run from the barrier and the breeding suggests she’ll get through the ground without too much trouble.
One at big odds is Woodrow. He won a three-year-old race at Scone last start after bolting throughout before pushing his way out and getting the win right on the line. He has raced in the city before and performed well and is a winner on a slow track. If you want to back something each-way, this one might be the way to go because if they go helter skelter in front, look out for him.
Chasse to win, from Torio’s Quest, Steps In Time and Woodrow.
