Muswellbrook Tips September 3


Muswellbrook Value Bet - Race 3 No. 12 Splendiferous

The powerful Waterhouse & Bott stable venture to Muswellbrook on Thursday with this three-year-old who's resuming in her second racing preparation.

A half-sister to a group three winner in Ballistic Boy, Splendiferous is no stranger to this circuit as she was sent around on debut here back in March as a well-supported favourite ($5.00-$3.90) but was quite green and was tipped straight out following that disappointing effort.

Given time to mature, she's had two nice trials in readiness for her return where she finished next to multiple group winner Dame Giselle on July 28 and under a hold, was only shaded late by Harlem Luya on August 11 with that filly winning her maiden in late August following that heat.

The 1280 metres looks a nice starting point for Splendiferous who has the speed to settle handy from barrier eight over this journey and is a far better price this time around with more in her favour.


Muswellbrook Best Bet - Race 4 No. 5 More Spice

It's a tough Muswellbrook program for a best bet, however, this honest mare looks to get every chance second-up in a very winnable assignment.

Prepared by the Scott Singleton yard in Scone, More Spice was a model of consistency over her second campaign which netted two wins and three seconds from seven starts and was competitive in every outing.

She didn't appear to have gone backwards in her August 25 return where she was forced to the rear of field from a wide gate but was only a stride off grabbing third on the line over a journey that was ultimately a little too sharp.

The step straight up to 1500 metres now suits More Spice and here from barrier one where she can settle much closer and do no work throughout, she ticks plenty of boxes in what isn't a deep race.


Muswellbrook Roughie - Race 5 No. 3 Manhattan Whirl

This ex-Victorian hasn't done a whole lot wrong in two starts for her stable and back on firmer footing here, she can improve third-up.

She showed some potential in her first campaign down south which culminated with a Ballarat maiden victory at start two but failed to produce in her next campaign and as a consequence, now finds herself racing in the easier NSW country jurisdictions.

Despite the big odds, she made a stack of ground fresh on August 2 in what's been a handy enough form race with the first two winning their next outings along with Sylvia's Memory who ran fifth in that event.

Manhattan Whirl still managed a midfield finish second-up despite conceding too big a start on a very testing surface and now with a good fitness base, she's in the each-way calculations here.

Splendiferous has been given time since a debut flop and is each-way odds in Race 3 off two nice trials, 

Manhattan Whirl is a big price in Race 5 but the form around her fresh run reads well and a return to firmer ground suits.
