RACE 1 GRANTS PASS
D O’S REIGNOFFIRE was last seen narrowly missing out on a hat-trick in a much more valuable event at Prairie Meadows and can bounce back if repeating that form on his Grants Pass debut. If he needs the run then C&D double seeker and the match-fit Bobbygenesjustice look most likely to capitalise.
WIN: D O’S REIGNOFFIRE
IMPACT DAZZLE had a number of these in arrears when a close third here earlier in the month and this improving sort is fancied to go two better today, possibly at the main expense of Hold On Im Gone and FOOSES FLYER.
WIN: IMPACT DAZZLE
VALUE: FOOSES FLYER
CM BOOM SHAKALAKA accounted for L Bar D Genuine Red (third) and Favorite Bling (fourth) when scoring here a fortnight ago and gets the nod to follow up. The latter duo were close in behind, though, while JESSTAFIABLY JESS must also be feared on the downgrade.
WIN: CM BOOM SHAKALAKA
VALUE: JESSTAFIABLY JESS
COACH’S VALENTINE has shown signs of ability in three starts at Golden Gate and can play a leading role on her Grants Pass debut, but preference is for MISSY PARKER. She had Last Night’s Angel (third) and Wild Chick (fourth) behind when runner-up over C&D a fortnight ago and should strip fitter for that seasonal bow.
WIN: MISSY PARKER
VALUE: COACH’S VALENTINE
COLT FIFTY SEVEN led until the shadow of the post when a head second (Fort Salubria fourth) on his return from nearly a year off over 5f here a fortnight ago and may not be for catching today with that run under his belt. DAXSTER, Tiger On Your Six and Aland are feared most.
WIN: COLT FIFTY SEVEN
Hashtag Bae and NICE GUYS FINISH both returned from layoffs to finish second here recently and are expected to strip fitter today. They can fight this one out, with narrow preference for the latter who has a fine record at this venue. Attercop completes the shortlist.
WIN: STRATEGIC VISION
VALUE: POOL PLAYA
SHE FLYS FOREVER signed off last year with a double here and a hat-trick could be on the cards if she picks up where she left off. However, that is far from guaranteed and the vote goes to XTRAFINE XTINA, who should have a fitness edge after making the frame with a promising reappearance run a fortnight ago. Staracrossthewater rates best of the rest.
WIN: XTRAFINE XTINA
VALUE: SHE FLYS FOREVER
BANZE NO OESTE has been knocking on the door and could be let in today, possibly at at the chief expense of class droppers Dizzy Dancer and UNUSUALLY BIG.
WIN: HIGH ABOVE
VALUE: UNUSUALLY BIG
