Our blackbookers to follow from racing on June 4 with the team assembling their runners to follow from the Belmont, Eagle Farm, Flemington, Morphettville and Rosehill cards.


Race 5 - Cobbanco (third): Was in an awkward position early after being beaten for speed over 1000m, with this three-year-old still last at the 200m before working through his gears nicely, defeated only 0.32 lengths. At 33.54, he's recorded the fastest last 600m of the meeting and it's worth noting two of his three career wins have come over 1400m, so this was a strong first-up platform to build off.

Race 9 - All Day Session (seventh): A talented sprinter that defeated Kissonallforcheeks last prep before a second to Triple Missile two starts later, he was well backed second-up despite being a runner that generally improves deeper into his work. Didn't have much luck in transit, where he firstly kept in a pocket by the eventual winner and was then caught on heels, Found the line well considering.


Race 3 - Sharp ’N’ Smart (second): Will they back-up in the JJ Atkins? If he does, he is the one the market is likely going to come for given the way he attacked the line behind Political debate and quite frankly he wins in one more stride. The mile would be right up his alley and if ideally from a draw soft draw, he can camp closer, meaning his key threats won't get a head start.

Race 5 - Contemptuous (fourth): The drift told the story for this consistent galloper, but back to 1000m off a fresh win over 1200m against some fit horses may not have been the best scenario for him. He was also caught wide, so there were plenty of excuses from the run and we know he has a will to win so back up in trip next time should see him much better suited. 


Race 5 - Mask Up (fourth): Get him back around a bend. We blackbooked him last start off the back of a solid run down the straight and have done so once again, but he just does not ping like he did in SA when going around the Morphettville bend. It looks as if a track such as Sandown will be right up his alley where he get that bend but still have a beautiful, big straight to go through his gears.

Race 6 - Dick Whittington (fifth). This gelding was very good two starts back and on the weekend ran super when he clearly is looking for more ground with no real turn-of-foot. He travelled well and hit the front at the top of the straight before being out-gunned by those who settled back in the field and were aided by such a hot pace. He will come right on from this and be suited over 2400m next start.


Race 3 - Knightstown (fourth): He was a little strangely placed leading into the carnival, a three-year-old that looked to be crying out for 1400m the whole time and then ran into a freak fourth-up when finally contesting that trip, an effort that he was freshened-up up from. The 1000m was a little slick here, but he was good through the line and with a low rating, he can pick a few easier races off over winter.

Race 8 - Zoulah (fourth): At 40/1 first-up over 1000m, clearly not much was expected of this mare, especially given all three wins have come over a mile and after settling at the rear from a wide draw, she was hard to miss late, albeit was assisted by a low weight. She did win second-up in town last prep when going from 1100m to 1600m and as a 68 rater in a BM82, they can find something easier.


Race 7 - Solar Apex (fifth): This Waller gelding is racing consistently and isn't far off win number six. Following a fresh triumph at Gosford, he went stepped from a BM72 to a BM88 and has gone further up in class here, contesting a BM94. After settling further back than anticipated and finding traffic in the run home, he's still recorded the fastest last 600m of the program (34.32). Is eligible for easier races.

Race 8 - Easifar (third): A listed winning miler as a three-year-old who has all of her winning form in the seven to eight furlong range, she was first-up after 12 months off and from a wide draw over 1200m, there was no intent. Loved the way she picked them off in the run home, rattling off the fastest last 200m and 600m in the process behind a pair of quality sprinters that she was spotting weight to.
