Kembla Grange Blackbook Runners - Saturday, November 23

The inaugural running of The Gong which was taken out by the Chris Waller trained Mister Sea Wold highlighted the action from Kembla Grange on Saturday.

In the one's to follow, we've picked out a few that can win over the coming summer period.

Kembla Grange Race 4 - Misteed

This Peter & Paul Snowden trained filly can be forgiven for this fresh effort coming off the back of two nice trials.

Wasn't necessarily a flashing light first-up performance, but given the pattern off the track and day was heavily against those forced to attempt a run out wide from off-speed, there was enough merit in the run.

Also suffered some inconvenience at the start and from that impossible position she was resigned to taking, still managed to pick off most of the field in the sprint home.

Potentially still one run away but again, was quite forward in her work leading in and she may be able to reach seven furlongs this preparation.

Likely Target: The 1200m BM78 at Rosehill on December 7 or the 1350m fillies and mares BM78 on that same card.

Kembla Grange Race 8 - Poetic Charmer

It wasn't a dissimilar effort and scenario to her stable mate Misteed was the fresh performance for this son of Your Song that's out of the multiple stakes winner Hoss Amor.

Was dictated to and forced back a few pairs more than he probably should've been in the run where he's then found himself close to the rear of the field on straightening.

His sprint home backed-up his nice work at the trials prior to this where of those attempting to swoop more wider than the first ouple of lanes in the straight, he was the clear pick of them.

Look for him to settle closer to the front next time out with a cleaner getaway and should only improve off the run.

Likely Target: Another that has that BM78 1200m option at Rosehill on December 7.

Kembla Grange Race 9 - Boomtown Rat

A lightly raced middle distance/staying type from the Bjorn Baker stable that should be in for a good campaign if this first-up effort is any indication.

By Rock 'N' Pop, this gelding is a half sister to a NZ group one winner in Irish Fling and has slowly improved with each campaign so far whilst this sixth placed finish was impressive.

He ultimately just found it all a little sharp but via a nice ride under Jason Collett, he was able to knuckle down and finish off with intent from an inside trailing position off the speed.

Has a very low rating of 69 so he can come back in grade and with perhaps another run required, he can notch up a few victories over the summer.

Likely Target: There's plenty of BM70's around that he can slot straight into.
