Punters' Post Mortem 6 & 7 Jan 2018

Track stars, favourites flop & star hoops

How the tracks played

Randwick suited backmarkers for the first time in a long while as swoopers featured in every race besides a daring ride by Declan McDonogh on Positive Problems in race five. While in Melbourne, on-pace runners were favoured at the rescheduled Caulfield meeting with front runners proving difficult to chase down.


Punters got it right

Siren’s Fury opened at $4 for the seventh race at Randwick and received plenty of market support to close at $2.70 on Friday. The Jason Coyle trained galloper was then crunched into $2.30 at the jump and the mare justified punters’ faith by holding out Queen Misty in the Randwick straight.

There was plenty of interest for Widgee Turf in race six at Caulfield after the gelding was backed from $2 on Sunday morning into a $1.70 starting price. The Patrick Payne trained runner saluted for punters however his supporters had to endure a heart-wrenching finish as Royal Ace flew home to almost spoil the party.


Punters got it wrong

Canyonero was well backed from $3.80 into $3.30 in the second race at Randwick. The Mark Newnham trained 2-year-old held the box seat before being blocked for a run in the straight, giving the colt no chance as the classy Futooh stormed to victory.

Noire was all the rage with punters last week after shortening into $1.90 from $2.10 openers in the eighth race at Randwick. The Chris Waller trained runner was looking to make it four wins on the trot and had every chance after taking the lead with 200m to run however a fast finishing Lanciato proved too good, beating the mare by 1.5L.


Track Star

Sunlight was ultra-impressive in the second race at the Gold Coast. The Tony McEvoy trained filly was pressured by the highly rated Terminology for the majority of the race before kicking away at the top of the straight to win by 4.5L eased down at the line. Sunlight has now firmed into $4.20 second favourite for the 2-year-old Magic Millions this Saturday.  


Hats off

Jason Collett put on a masterclass at Randwick as he rode a career best, four winners. The kiwi has forged a reputation as a jockey who likes to leave his run late and the Randwick track certainly suited his style on Saturday. It was his fifteenth winner at Randwick this season which is the most for any jockey.

Rachel King proved once again that she’s a future superstar of racing after riding Phoebe’s Lass to victory at Canterbury on Friday night and then backing it up with a win aboard Lanciato at Randwick on Saturday. King is now 10 wins clear of her nearest apprentice rival in the NSW metropolitan premiership.


Ones to watch

Futooh improved significantly second-up and looks to have plenty of untapped ability. The David Hayes trained filly will now head back to Melbourne where a decision will be made on her next target.

Eawase had a luckless run in the second at Randwick after the filly was forced to climb over the back of runners as she faced a wall of horses in the straight. She’ll take plenty from that run and will improve significantly with a senior jockey aboard.
