Here’s a detailed look at tomorrow’s UBET Market Movers…
GOLD COAST (BR)
Dortmund has only had the one race start when finishing 2nd at Canterbury on a heavy 9, beaten a half-length. The Snitzel colt has trialled since his debut in good order at Wyong over 1000m behind Oxford Poet and the blinkers go on for this. After a bet of $1,000 at $4.40, he is in to $4.20.
There has been solid support for the Gary Moore trained Mount Panorama, with his price continuing to firm. Opening at $6.50, the gelding is in to $4.40, including a bet of $1,500 at $5.50. The blinkers go on and Tim Clark is up- could a Magic Millions maiden provide as much joy to the Moore/Clark combo as that of Takedown in the G1 Winterbottom?
Regimental Force has been specked at value, tightening from $21 to $17. The dam of this fellow was Regimental Gal, the 2003 Magic Millions Classic winner.
Queen Tara has been well tried and after opening at $3.60 has firmed to a $3.20 quote. The best go on the 4YO mare a bet of $3,000 at $3.60. The Toby Edmonds/Jeff Lloyd combo will be hoping this isn’t the biggest win of their day as they will combine later in the day with Houtzen.
Upstart has started just one before at Gold Coast and the four-time winner will be second-up for Kris Lees. Opening at $7 he has tightened to $5.50.
Madotti and Pepperano share the position at the head of the market, both at $4.40. Pepperano will jump from gate 4 and Madotti 5, with Madotti lining up on Magic Millions day for the third consecutive year after running 4th to Le Chef in the 2015 Classic and then 5th to Mahuta in the Guineas in 2016
Almost two-thirds of the hold is for the Hayes/Dabernig trained Boom Time, the 5YO looking to secure his fourth successive victory. After opening at $3.80 and including a $1,000 bet at that quote, he has firmed to $3.30.
Dual Group 1 winner Stratum Star will have to lump 61kg to be successful here and is on the second line at $4.
Bjorn Baker could be in for a profitable 75 minutes, as he saddles the favourites in races 5 and 7. Egyptian Symbol has firmed from $3.80 to $3.30, including a large go at the place of $1,100 at $1.65.
Denpurr has been well tried at odds and has firmed to $9.50 after opening at a $12 quote. The Snowden’s don’t often go home empty handed from a major Queensland meeting and this mare is one of five likely starters for the father/son training team.
The Tony Gollan trained Most Important is the best go and has firmed to $3.80 after opening at $4.40. There have been tow bets of $2,000 at $4.40 and then again at $4.
Snippets Land has been tried at value, opening at $17 and firming to $14, the 6YO having placed at both previous attempts on the Gold Coast track.
It’s all one-way traffic, with the only runner punters are interested in being the Bjorn Baker trained Winning Rupert. And rightly so. The chestnut will be looking to remain undefeated at career start 6 and is at a $1.50 quote. Some of the big goes at that price have been $8,000, $2,000 (x2) and $1,000 (x3). The $1.60 was snapped up and bets struck at that quote included $5,000 (x2)
Ours To Keep is a big firmer after opening at $9, the Munce trained colt is now showing at $5.50. Bigger bets include $1,000 at $6.50 and $2,000 at $6. Not only will victory secure the $1.8m 1st prizemoney, a win would see the colt take out a bonus $500,000 for the Queensland Summer Racing 2YO crown.
Chris Munce, other undefeated runner, Champ Elect has been specked at odds and has firmed from $31 to $23, including a bet of $1,000/$3,800 at $31 and $7.75.
Jeff Lloyd can secure the Guineas/Classic double if Winning Rupert and Houtzen were to both win. Houtzen has drifted after landing the outside barrier, however there have still been some strong bets on the filly including $3,000 at $4 and $1,000 at $3.50.
Hidden Pearl is the best tried on the get-out, with the Barry Lockwood trained mare well supported, yet holding steady at a $6.50 quote.
Dothraki is two from two at the Gold Coast 1200m trip and is on the second line of the market at $5.
The MacDonald/Gluyas partnership prepare On A Dream who will take a 2kg claim for Eran Boyd. The 7YO steps out to his longest trip and comes into this a last start winner over 1800m when carrying 59kg. He is on the second line of the market at $3.80.
Artful Jack is the best tried and is holding steady at $8. The 3YO will be first up since August and will use the 3kg claim of Anna Jodsjo.
Harlem Child has met with support that has seen her quote tighten from $8 in to $7 and the Poon Train will use a 2kg claim on the David Jolly trained filly.
Eran Boyd will take a 2kg claim off the allotted 60kg of Beautiful Flyer who is the even money $2 favourite. Around 85% of the hold is for the 4YO mare.
Alabama Missile will be second-up this prep and heads the market at $3. The 7YO mare has a handy 2nd up record that shows 7:1-1-3 and a win will see her record her third successive victory.
Jet Express gets in with a 3kg claim for Dylan Caboche which will see him carry 53kg. Still a maiden, he has his hoof right on the ‘till, beaten a head and a long head his past 2 starts. Jumping from barrier 9 he is at $12 for this.
Wise Journey has been specked at odds, firming from $21 in to $18. Jason Holder is up with the 7YO to jump from gate 13.
Battle Brewing is on the third line of the market and has met with some support to see his quote trimmed from $5 to $4.40. The 4YO was a winner last week over the 1400m and although yet to win beyond 1400m, he has placed in 5 of 7 attempts at this trip.
Anna Jordsjo will take a 3kg claim on the early favourite Murti who will be second-up this prep. The 4YO had 55.5kg on his back last start in a benchmark 75 when beaten 2.3 lengths behind Strategic Demand. With the claim he will carry 54kg here and is a three-time winner over the 6 furlong trip.
Just Kappy will need a scratching to get in to the field, yet has still been tried at odds of $26. Justin Potter is booked for the ride, with the 5YO yet to win beyond 1100m.
Just a small field of 5 to contest the opener with the Gerald Ryan trained Menari put up at red figures. The Snitzel colt has looked impressive in two trials and gets a 2kg lift for James Innes Jnr.
The John O’Shea trained Piracy resumes after starting in the Breeders Plate back in October when well held behind Khan. The well named colt has had some gear changes since his debut.
Raiment has missed a top 3 placing just once in her seven start career and heads the market at $2.20. There have been bets struck of $1,000 and $2,000 at that quote and the filly currently accounts for 85% of the hold.
Pumpkin Pie resumes here and comes into this a last start 2nd to Eckstein, who has won another 3 starts in succession since. Allotted 1.5kg above the minimum, trainer Danny Williams has opted to utilise Andrew Adkins with a 2kg claim.
Trainer Rodney Northam heads to town from Scone for this highway handicap and saddles the early $2.60 favourite L’elu. The Fastnet Rock filly missed a place for the first time in her career last start in a benchmark 72 handicap, beaten 2.5 lengths behind Improvement.
Harada Bay has been well tried and over 90% of the hold is on the 7YO gelding. Trained at Eagle Farm, John & Chris Meagher head south and James Innes Jnr will take the ride with a 2kg claim.
Punters will be keeping a keen eye on Religify in this race, the Waller trained gelding on the second line of the market at $2.45. The interest will relate to From Within for the Magic Millions Classic as the pair trialled against other last week, with From Within prevailing in good style.
Hardern is the best tried and after opening at $6 is now in to $4.80, including a bet of $1,200 at $5.50. Trained at Mornington by David Brideoake, he was 2nd last start in a benchmark 78 over 2400m at Sandown, beaten a half-length. A dual acceptor, he has been scratched from Flemington in preference for this race
Opening at $5 and firming to $4.80 with solid support, Invincible Knight will be second-up off a break. Although yet to win when second-up, he did win first-up for the first time last start. John Thompson trains the 4YO who rounded out his 3YO campaign in the Queensland Guineas behind Tsaritsa and started his 4YO term the best way possible. Blaike McDougall will use a 3kg claim, like he did when winning aboard the gelding last start.
Badajoz opened at $5.50 and after a few early nibbles was wound out to $6 which was then snapped up, including a bet of $1,000 at that quote. With continued support and some scratchings, he is now in to $4.20. The Godolphin runner has a top record at the trip of 6:2-2-1.
Top Striker has had support to see his quote trimmed from $6 in to $5. Allotted the top of 61.5kg, trainer Gregory Hickman will use the 2kg claim of Andrew Adkins. The 5YO is a last start winner over 100m here when starting favourite.
Classic Uniform is the best go in the get-out, his price almost cut in half. Opening at $9, the Gary Moore trained 4YO is in to $4.80, including a bet of $1,000 at $6. The 4YO starts at Randwick for just the second time and has a good record of 6:2-2-0 at the mile trip.
Emptor is a narrow 2nd favourite at $3 and from three career starts has been successful twice at Newcastle. Taken to Caulfield for his last start he finished 3rd, beaten a long head. Regan Bayliss rides the colt for the first time.
My Sanctuary opened at $8.50 and is the best supported and at this stage is holding steady at that quote. Michael Dee takes the ride for Darren Weir on the mare that finished a nose 2nd over this track and trip back in August.
6YO mare Vital Importance is a 7 furlong specialist and her record reads at 10:3-2-2. Her only attempt at the Flemington 1400m was a 3rd and the Henry Dwyer trained 6YO is a narrow favourite at $4.20.
The Hayes/Dabernig prepared Strictly Legit is the best tried at $5, holding steady at that price under some good support. The blinkers go on the Nicconi gelding for the first time as he lines up for just his third start.
Opening at $4.20, Damien Oliver has been booked to take the ride on Divine Ten, a five time winner from just eight starts that will be first up since September 2014. All eight starts were at Sha Tin and despite the fact he has yet to be seen in a public trial in Australia, there has been some strong support to see his quote cut to $3.70.
Jake Bayliss takes the ride on the Mick Kent trained Oncidium Ruler and will use a 2kg claim. Opening at $4.20, the 5YO has met with some strong support and following the scratching of the dual acceptor Hardern, his quote was slashed to $2.90. There have been best of $1,600 and $1,500 at the $2.90.
Grande Rosso opened at $6.50 and under continued support has been tightened to $5 including a bet of $1,000 at the $5. The Written Tycoon gelding has a top record at the distance of 7:3-3-0 and Regan Bayliss is up for the Lindsay Park team of Hayes/Dabernig.
The Weir trained Toponah has been specked at odds after opening at $31. The American import is now in to $19 and has a win at Flemington from two appearances although has yet to win at anything shorter than a mile.
Flying Light opened at $7 and has met with good support and has his price trimmed to $7. The 4YO shoots for the hat-trick following successive wins, both over the Flemington 10 furlong trip.
Master Of Arts opened at $4.80 and has had admirers to see his price tighten to $4.50. The Weir trained 5YO grey is 2 from 3 at Flemington.
Stellar Collision has proved costly thus far in 3 runs this prep and yet it looks like punters are giving him another chance in the get-out. Opening at $6.50, he is the only runner that punters are looking at early, which has seen his price trimmed to $6.
There has been some nibbles at the $51 for Monkstone, who will be first-up and has firmed to $41.
