WINNO'S KILCOY KASH: KILCOY, JANUARY 26

By Darren Winningham | Thursday, January 25, 2018

KILCOY KASH FRIDAY 26 JANUARY 2018 – AUSTRALIA DAY

Well we can almost smell the famous steaks on the BBQ at the Kilcoy Racecourse on Australia Day!

As usual the Club encourages the patrons to turn up in the best Australia Day attire and celebrate “Straya Day” at the course!

It will be a great day out with six thoroughbred races scheduled.

Then the popular pacing on the course proper – with four races scheduled.

Not to forget the families and the children, there will be three mini trot races with the kids and their ponies going around.

What a great program!

The track is rated “GOOD” and the rail will be in the true position the meeting.

WINNO will be trackside for this meeting after a short spell.

NB: As this form assessment was made prior to raceday, please check final fields and track conditions for any changes on the day.

***************************************************************************************************

Race 1

Well race 1 – here we go!

Cartagena (3) is third up here – I think the longer 1500 metres is probably to his liking. Hannah English takes the ride and she has been riding in tremendous form in recent weeks.

Arma de Feugo (3) comes off some solid runs at the Gold Coast and Toowoomba and on occasions can lead. Kilcoy track does normally favour leaders, so the riding tactics of Rebecca Williams may be of importance to this gelding’s chances.

Victory of Mine (7) was sent out favourite last start at Toowoomba in a maiden and did acquit himself well. In his last few starts he has led or raced on the speed – so I expect him to lead here – he may leave himself as a sitting duck in the last 100 metres. He is still a maiden and takes on an average Class 1 field here.

Selections: 2-3-7-4

***************************************************************************************************

Race 2

Ben Currie has a nice chance here with Bismarc (7) to be ridden by Skye Bogenhuber. He has drawn the rails and should race handy. Last start it is fair to say he was disappointing at Toowoomba when sent out as favourite.

Captain Parker (4) I think is the obvious danger. He normally likes to lead in his races and has some reasonable form around this distance. I think that if he gets his own way in front with Gary Geran in the saddle he may be hard to toss.

Barry Baldwin puts one on the float and sends Oh Boy (2) to Kilcoy. “Bubba” Tilley takes the ride here and this one is down in class. It is difficult to line up the form against the other runners. However, when Barry gets one right and sets it for a win they normally prove hard to beat. If there is any money for this runner be sure to follow it.

Selections: 7-4-2-1

****************************************************************************************************

Race 3

There are a few early scratchings in this race.

I like the last emergency here if he accepts at Kilcoy – You’re So Vain (17) trained by Paul Nolan (Jnr) at Toowoomba. The gelding has drawn better than some of the other more fancied runners in barrier 4 and over the short 1060 metres this could prove vital factor. Whilst no jockey has been declared as, yet I think he looks well placed.

Bullion Belle (5) is having her second career start at Kilcoy for Darryl Ward. Nathan Fazackerley’s three-kilogram claim should assist this runner. Her debut at Ipswich I thought was okay. She has had 19 weeks off since that run and I think would have derived some benefit from that race day experience.

Benovsky (4) has had two runs here at Kilcoy – on both occasions the runs have been very strong and he has just been beaten by a better one on the day on both occasions. Hannah English is aboard again for this assignment – the wide barrier (barrier 13) may be problematic.

Bravado Miss (9) has been knocking on the door and represent good value with Melissa Cox to ride.

Selections: 17-5-4-9

***************************************************************************************************

Race 4

Trainer Bradley Hudson from Oakey has a few runners here in this 800-metre dash.

I like Silver Gums (6) to be ridden by Zoe White from barrier 5. Drawn handy - last start was first up here at Kilcoy and looked a little fat. I think that run would have topped this mare off nicely and she has some solid form around the Northern Rivers of NSW before transferring to Hudson over this distance. I am hoping she parades well and she gets a nice run.

Dragon Street (3) seems to have his races spaced out and has drawn barrier 1. Last start at Gatton he was sent out at $91 and ran a nice race.

Star Painter (8) comes off a poor run at Beaudesert last start – something must have gone amiss. He has had a change of stable and is now trained by Paul McEwan at Oakey – maybe the stable change may see a reversal of form.

The other Hudson runner I like is Coalbank Caviar (14) who has drawn nice in barrier 4. His last run was here on 29 December and he was caught wide – if you forgive that run and he can get a run snug against the rail here he may be one at some large odds to show up here.

Selections: 6-8-14-3

***************************************************************************************************

Race 5

This is the distance race for the program over the 1900 metres.

The Butler McDermott Lawyers Australia Day Cup for 2018!

Hannah English rides Stratalena (9) who has a victory here at the Kilcoy track and distance back on 2 December 2017. I think you can safely forget the last start run at Gatton where she raced wide and really didn’t get a crack at them. This week given a nice run in behind the leaders she may just be the one to beat.

Scarlet Poet (3) has been racing at the Gold Coast and Doomben in her last two starts – she looks well in this race and will run the 1900 metres right out.

Wicked Trilogy (1) resumed here on 2.12.17 with a dominant performance destroying the opposition by 5.3 lengths. He looks well placed by Ben Currie here, but I think that he would be better suited on a wet track.

Rusty Scooter (5) is trained at Rockhampton by Tom Button. The gelding does normally race off the speed and that may be a disadvantage here at the tight turning Kilcoy track. However, he does possess a nice sprint – as long as jockey Nigel Seymour has him travelling nicely into the race prior to the turn he may feature in the finish.

Selections: 9-3-1-5

****************************************************************************************************

Race 6

Hot Talk (2) for Ben Currie is the one to beat if she turns up. She is very talented and has been out of luck in her last few starts.

I like a roughie here in Can He Rap (9) to be ridden by Kenji Yoshida. This gelding always seems to put in a solid run second up. He has drawn the rails here that should be to his advantage. His first up effort at Gatton looked okay after being trapped wide and running out of fitness in the run. Look for an improved performance here.

Hancock (3) is trained by Darryl Hansen at the Sunshine Coast – his stable is in solid form of late and I see that Jason “Hoops” Hoppert is aboard here. Forget the last start at Ipswich where he was knocked over and didn’t get a real shot at them in the straight – another one that may just surprise here in the last race.

Selections: 2-9-3-11
