Punters' Post Mortem 3 Feb 2018

Horses on top, those that flop, masterful rides and more

With morning showers in Sydney, the Rosehill track rated a Soft 6 before an upgrade to Soft 5 later in the day. The track played fair affording all runners their chance, with most jockeys coming two or three off the rail to find the best going in the straight.

Caulfield played fair with the inside part of the track holding up well. The best horses on the day won and there weren’t many hard luck stories. 

Punters got it right

Don’t Give a Damn was well supported in the final race at Rosehill, opening the day at $4.30 before the big money arrived, firming him into $2.35. Punters were queuing at the 200m to collect as jockey Kerrin McEvoy steered him perfectly to the lead, before kicking away for a strong 1.8L victory.


Punters got it wrong

Snitty Kitty was all the rage with punters in race six at Caulfield. Backed from $2 into $1.75 as if unbeatable, the Henry Dwyer trained mare led them-up easily, running fast early-sectionals, only for punters to see the bubble burst in the last 50m.

Finishing 0.4L second to the $51 outsider Lady Esprit, the short-priced favourite attracted bets of $28,000@ $1.80 and $8,000@ $2, leaving punters with a sour taste in their mouths.


Track Star

Bedford showed he’s a horse on the rise after making it back to back wins in race seven at Caulfield. Coming off a 6L victory, the Anthony Freedman trained gelding handled the steep rise in class from a BM70 to a BM84, showing an impressive turn-of-foot to finish over the top of his rivals in the straight.


One to Forget

More Moet, which is what you’d need if you followed our Form Guide Find selection. Time to lay off the champagne. It’s a donkey!


Hats off

Kerrin McEvoy proved yet again why he’s the punters pal. After an injury forced lay-off, McEvoy had a great book of rides for his first Saturday meeting in seven weeks, and didn’t disappoint. Riding the first three winners for the Chris Waller stable, then finishing off the day with a dominant display on Don’t Give a Damn.  

A notable mention to Sydney’s leading trainer Chris Waller on his home track of Rosehill. Waller trained the first four winners on the card at an average starting price of $3.90.


Horses to watch

Charlayne was ultra-impressive in the first race at Rosehill. The Chris Waller trained filly has a bright future and should be followed through the grades.

Trapeze Artist was dominant with the addition of the blinkers, sitting outside a hot speed he burst clear over the concluding stages for a 1.25Lvictroy. His next start is likely to be in the Apollo Stakes setting up a possible clash with wonder mare Winx.
