Bathurst Tips January 29


Bathurst Best Bet - Race 4 No. 2 Cicero Field

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott head to Bathurst on Friday seeking a kill with this mare who plummets in grade from a pair of Benchmark 72 attempts in town to a Set Weights Class 1 at Country level.

From a good family (half-sister to a Stakes-winner Horizons), Cicero Field has been mixing her form somewhat this preparation as she didn't look far away after a nice run at Gosford, but was a little flat third-up albeit not beaten far behind Strange Charm at Canterbury.

With the blinkers going on, it was a good effort in getting home on January 22 considering she blundered the start and with her biggest threat here being Baxter, who looks well suited up to this trip but is a Maiden runner, this is a perfect opportunity to bring up win number two.


Bathurst Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Rodrick's Secret

Although wary of a bounce back to form with Saint Ay, a galloper that won two in a row prior to contesting the Cowra Cup, this race falls away otherwise and that opens up the door for this son of Rubick now third-up from a spell.

Honest in both runs this campaign and simply just outclassed via his latest at Kembla Grange behind a handy Exoboom, trainer Matthew Smith has placed the son of Rubick well in an easier assignment here and has opted for the winkers now to sharpen him up.

Rodrick's Secret doesn't have a great turn-of-foot, so the extra 300m should be ideal as he will stick on and the form through his Maiden win last winter reads okay through Zou Island, who finished that campaign with a pair of placings behind two Group class runners in Bucharest and Quintessa.


Bathurst Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Smart Decision

While she is some time between drinks, Smart Decision was campaigning at Provincial and Sydney level throughout her first two preparations and joined the Roy McCabe yard last winter, a local Bathurst trainer who has now put the blinkers on this mare.

In her first four performances for the new stable, she did mix her form over July and August before being tipped out and resumed this summer with an eye-catching run from the back at Orange on January 8, in a 1280m race that was dominated by the leaders.

The six-year-old didn't have much left in the tank late via her effort last Saturday, which was the end result of a bumping duel a long way out when attempting to get off the fence, so from barrier 10, should be more comfortable racing to the outside of her rivals here.
