Gosford Tips August 28


Gosford Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Highly Desired

The local Luke Hilton yard prepare this six-year-old who's been very brave in both runs this campaign and now with a run over the mile under his belt, he should be ready to produce.

He did a stack of work early from a wide gate when resuming over seven furlongs where after finally getting the lead, he was pestered by a 70/1 chance, who eventually knocked up to beaten nearly 14 lengths whilst Highly Desired was only out-bobbed on the line by A Magic Zariz.

They gapped the rest of the field and following that, he was the only on-pace runner to stick on in the Forbes Cup where he was rolled by The Sledgehammer who he was spotting 5.5kg to and he's since won again by a big margin.

Highly Desired should have no trouble finding the front from barrier three under Mikayla Weir, who importantly brings her 2kg Provincial claim to this which should see them take plenty of catching as the best bet at Gosford on Friday.


Gosford Roughie - Race 5 No. 7 Red Hot

After two preparations which didn't yield a win, Red Hot resumed on July 25 over the five furlongs at Gosford and despite the big odds, gave them a galloping lesson after settling well back in the field.

The time was good for the class on that card with that win only going around three quarters of a length slower than the Benchmark 64 later in program and the runner-up from that maiden franked the form by breaking through at his next outing.

Although she didn't win in her prior eight attempts. the daughter of Poet's Voice wasn't disgraced in some competitive efforts which includes a placing behind the very handy Tailleur prior to two nice runs in city maidens.

There looks to be a stack of speed engaged is this 1100m contest and drawing to sit off them then come with one last dash again, Red Hot is a big each-way price arriving off a strong victory.


Gosford Value Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Siesta Key

Racing under the Australian Bloodstock banner is this four-year-old who's kicking off her third racing preparation now and she has been thereabouts over her short journey to date.

By So You Think and out of a full-sister to dual group one winner and now champion sire Fastnet Rock, the $70,000 shelved out as a yearling does seem awfully cheap for a girl with those elite bloodlines and Siesta Key is no slouch.

Ideally, we'd have liked to have seen her hit the line with more gusto in many of them prior runs, however, she's still been in the mix and there's still plenty of upside there as a runner with just nine starts to her name.

Siesta Key wasn't let off the bridle in two hit-outs leading into this return and from a soft draw with some relief via the 1.5kg claim of Louise Day, she's well placed to figure first-up.
