JWR WEEKEND PREVIEW

Aug 15, 2015

It has been a quiet week on the racing front with the team enjoying a rare week off the racetrack.

It felt like a raceday at Cranbourne on Monday with eight horses trailing and plenty of owners in attendance. There were some impressive performances from some of our unraced 3yo's headed by Zabeel filly ZASORCERESS and Beneteau gelding PURITAN. Both look to have bright futures!

CAULFIELD SATURDAY - GODSPIEL

In-form mare Godspiel heads to Caulfield tomorrow looking to make it two wins on end after her strong win at Sale. She is jumping up considerably in grade but does drop 6kg so she won't know herself with that weight. She looks a good each way chance with Froggy Newitt aboard.

BENDIGO SUNDAY - MAGNATUNE

Magnatune looked disappointing at Seymour last week after his terrific win at the Valley. But, it may pay to forgive that run. He was ridden too aggressively that day and never got a breather mid race so it wasn't surprising that he knocked up. He has been schooled over the jumps during the week so looking for an improved showing.

ECHUCA MONDAY - NINA TO RULE

We have NINA RULES and MACONSILIA entered for Echuca on Monday with the later only a 50/50 chance of running depending on the track condition. Dane Shadow filly NINA RULES will definitely run after her excellent trial on Monday. She is a lovely filly and the consummate professional. It looks a good race on paper with some well bred first starters entered. Word is that a few of the unraced horses go well but they will need to be good to beat little Nina who has race experience on her side.

SNITZEL FILLY GEARING UP FOR SPRING

We paid good money for our Snitzel x Five Star Belle filly at this years Magic Millions Sale but she hasn't disappointed us yet and we are hoping that she lives up to her good looks and price tag! We have a couple of shares left if anyone wants to get involved in a filly that should race this spring with the big goal being the $2.5million Magic Millions Classic in January on the Gold Coast!
