James Cummings 120218

Punters' Post Mortem 10 Feb 2018

Tagged: James Cummings

The wash-up from Saturday's racing action

With late showers in Sydney on Friday afternoon, the Warwick Farm track was rated a Soft 5 before an upgrade to a Good 4 prior to race four. The track played fair, affording all runners their chance, with jockeys coming three-to-four lanes off the rail to find the best going in the straight.

Racing at Caulfield saw winners come from across the track with race tempo playing a significant role throughout the day.


Punters got it right

Fickle Folly received plenty of support from the market for the final race at Rosehill, jumping at $3.50 after an opening price of $7. Jockey Corey Brown rode the mare like she was the best horse in the race, sitting three wide just off the speed before releasing the shackles as she entered the home turn. Punters were queuing to collect at the 200m as she kicked away for a strong 1.3L victory.

Old North was sent to Doomben and was put up at $26 when markets opened. Being first-up, punters supported the Godolphin runner on class alone and they were rewarded after he saluted by 1.5L, starting at $6.50.

Punters got it wrong

Get on the Grange looked a standout in race one at Doomben and was backed accordingly, jumping at $2 from $3.60 openers. The NSW galloper was given a visitor’s welcome as he was taken on in the lead at the 1000m mark and again at the 800m mark by two different runners, setting the race up perfectly for back-marker Morendi.

Egyptian Symbol was backed as if unbeatable in the Group 2 Breeders Classic at Warwick Farm. Punters singled out the Bjorn Baker trained mare, supported late in the piece from $3.50 into $2.90 as stablemate and early market mover Bonny O’rielly was a noticeable drifter $3.10 to $5. Egyptian Symbol failed to make inroads on the Waterhouse-Bott trained Prompt Response, who tore away for a convincing 1.5L victory.


Track Stars

Kementari destroyed a talented group of gallopers in the Group 3 Eskimo Stakes at Warwick Farm. Racing in sixth position at the 600m, the James Cummings trained runner peeled off the fastest 600m sectional of the race (33.75), 0.49 seconds quicker than any of his rivals. The colt will relish Group 1 class and he’ll get his chance soon as the Randwick Guineas and Doncaster look firmly in his crosshair.

Hartnell managed to put a disappointing Spring campaign behind him on Saturday by taking out the Group 1 C.F Orr Stakes at Caulfield. After settling midfield, the six-year-old was taken wide into the home turn by jockey Craig Williams before straitening up under the whip. The gelding dug deep to produce a mighty burst at the 100m mark to finish over the top of them, proving he’s still got plenty of racing left in him.


Hats off

James Cummings looks to have found his groove as head trainer for Godolphin, getting the best out of old-timers Old North who was placed to perfection first-up at Doomben, and Hartnell who looks to be back in career best form winning the Group 1 at Caulfield. He also showed that he has plenty of new talent coming through the ranks after Kementari stamped himself as a Doncaster contender following his win in the Eskimo Stakes at Warwick Farm.


Horses to watch

Seabrook was a good thing beat in the second race at Caulfield. The Mick Price trained filly had a dream run on the rails before copping a check at the 200m mark as she was about to put the burners on. Jockey Damien Oliver then attempted to get her to the outside but had no luck as she was blocked for a run. One to place in your black book.   

Mr So and So was ridden conservatively in the Group 2 Autumn stakes at Caulfield where he finished 1.2L second. The gelding has never run over 1400m but is screaming out for the extra distance after he ran on very well and crossed the line with plenty of gas in the tank.
