Happy Clapper 070418

Saturday racing review 07 April 2018

Track Stars, Ones to forgive & One to forget

Wow, what a day! To say it was a punter’s nightmare is an understatement. With $150, $25, $51 and $70 winners across Randwick and Bendigo on Saturday, it made it very hard to get amongst the money. A day to forget for the pocket, but punters were still treated to some outstanding performances. 


Track Stars

Happy Clapper is the people’s champion and didn’t he delight the huge crowd of nearly 20,000 on course after storming to victory in the Doncaster. He’s tough as teak and fought on so well to the line. After finishing second in the Doncaster for the last two years, he managed to turn it around on Saturday. A really good win and he now heads to the Queen Elizabeth next weekend to take on the mighty mare again.


Victorem is a beauty. I’ve been on his back since I first saw him race and he didn’t disappoint yesterday in the Country Championships at Randwick. He was held up and blocked for a run in the straight but once he ducked back to the inside it was game over. He was pulling away from them on the line- not bad for a horse trying out the 1400m for the first time! Trainer Jenny Graham is now likely to aim him towards Brisbane and possibly the Stradbroke where I’m sure he has a red-hot chance.


Levendi was brilliant. I didn’t give this horse much of a chance on Saturday but all credit to the stable to have him in tip-top shape. Backing up his win in the Tulloch with a victory in the Derby on Saturday after a seven day back-up is very impressive.


What do you say about Trapeze Artist?! Gerald Ryan described him as a giant killer who loves to perform on the big days and didn’t he do that on Saturday in the TJ Smith. You know you are low flying when you round up Redzel and pull away from him in the straight! An awesome effort by a hugely talented 3yo who may only have one more run before they push him off to stud.


Harrison was very good in only his third start on Aussie soil. He put them away over the final 100m in the first at Bendigo and I think there is only upside with him. Well worth following to see where he pops up next. 


Ones to follow

Lean Mean Machine was good in the first of the day at Randwick. There only looks to be upside with this lightly raced colt who was only racing for the second time yesterday. He flattens out nicely when at top speed and will be better for that run. He will be winning again soon.

Mr One Eleven was an eye catcher running a fast finishing fourth in the first at Bendigo. This 43 race start veteran has come back this prep in career best form, winning last start and running well again on Saturday. It may pay to back him next time if he appears in a slightly easier race. 


Forgive File

Holy Snow was very unlucky in the second at Randwick after being boxed in for most of the straight, only to fly home to grab third after he saw daylight. He definitely should have won and it will pay to stick with him next time.

Manicure was very good again on Saturday in the Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes at Randwick. A solid effort first-up and a good second on Saturday should see her primed for a win third-up, so keep an eye out for where they place her next.


One to forget

In Her Time was given a horror ride in the TJ Smith by Damian Lane, who was the first to put his hands up post-race saying he got way too far back on this very talented 5yo mare. She rocketed home when asked but it was all too late- she will turn it around next time out.
