Lanieri (Eagle Farm 6/8/14 Race 6)
Lightly raced Dylan Thomas mare who has improved out of sight since joining the Lindsay Gough stable this campaign. She’s always shown ability however the penny has really dropped now & this latest win was clearly her best to date. She sat back off the pace giving the leaders 3 – 4 lengths at the top of the straight before unleashing a stunning sprint between the 400-200 (10.68, Rank 1) charging past her rivals as if they were tied to the fence, she rounded off the race finishing off her last 200-Finish (11.24, Rank 1). Her overall last 600m was over a second faster than any other runner. She can now take the step up to Saturday grade.
Duchess Molly (Ipswich 8/8/14 Race 5)
Real Saga filly trained by Matt Dunn who has only had the three starts to date. Liked her latest effort making good ground to close the margin from 8 lengths at the 600m to 2.5 lengths on the line, she was the only runner to break 35 seconds for her final 600 clocking 34.92 with late splits of 400-200 (11.20, Rank 1), 200-Finish (11.92, Rank 1). She’ll get over further based on that effort & is definitely one to look out for in coming weeks.
Red Hot Dazzler (Eagle Farm 9/8/14 Race 8)
Red Dazzler gelding trained out at Deagon by Darren Bell who looks to have his hoof right on the till. Definitely should have finished closer two starts back at Doomben when he just couldn’t get clear in the home straight winding up just over a length behind the winner Oak ‘n’ Arthur. This time around he was ridden at the tail of the field & was still giving away over 7 lengths start inside the final 300m before being hooked around runners & taken right to the outside by jockey Ric McMahon. He really wound up late running his last 200-Finish (11.09, Rank 1) which was considerably quicker than any other runner. A win doesn’t look far away.
Chilwero (Gold Coast 9/8/14 Race 8)
Red Ransom galloper trained by Dan Bougoure at Eagle Farm who was resuming in this race having not been seen since June last year when slowly away & unplaced behind Missy Longstocking in Listed grade at Eagle Farm, he was a dominant Rockhampton winner at his only other start two weeks prior. He gave the leaders 9 lengths start early on in this race before hooking wide on the home turn, he dashed home his last 400-200 (11.56, Rank 4), 200-Finish (11.08, Rank 1). There’s no doubt he’ll improve plenty with that run under the belt & that being the case shouldn’t be long in winning once again whether it be in South East Queensland or further North.
