ROBRICK LODGE HANDICAP Tips (Race 2)
Gosford Value Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Lost Impact
There doesn't appear to be a whole separating the bunch that were well beaten by the handy Mightybeel at Canterbury on February 12 and off a runner-up at Hawkesbury in debut, this galloper does appear to have a few less convictions for now.
Lost Impact hadn't shown much at the trials prior to her January 25 heat when finding the line well but is bred to get over a trip, so understandably took a little while to come to hand and although she was safely held on February 9, the effort behind Vintage Harvest was sound.
That winner was dropping back to Provincial level for the first time and that last start line-up also included Blaze Seven who was beaten just over two lengths in town as favourite first-up, so it wasn't a bad Maiden by any means and with natural improvement at start two, can go close at an each-way price.
STREET BOSS @ DARLEY HANDICAP Tips (Race 3)
Gosford Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Geist
While we're wary of the very impressive fresh winner Salateen, the favourite is coming up in grade from a Provincial 64 and the form hasn't exactly been great out of that February 4 contest, albeit she was well and truly another level to that line-up.
After running into a leader-dominated event first-up, Geist found form back at the Provincials where she won her Maiden over Miracle Street, who bolted in to breakthrough via her next outing and the Godolphin mare made it back-to-back wins on a Heavy track at Gosford before going to town.
Despite the losing margin not necessarily reflecting it, the fast lanes out wide on that Kensington circuit cost this three-year-old the chance of a winning hat-trick on February 3 and fresh off a treble at Rosehill on Saturday, jockey Rachel King will be eager to make amends on Geist this Wednesday.
SKY RACING ACTIVE HANDICAP Tips (Race 7)
Gosford Best Bet - Race 7 No. 8 Flexible
There are no prizes for finding the last favourite from Gosford but is clearly the one to beat despite the rise in weights and this doesn't appear to be any harder to the field she made light work of February 3 when bolting in over 1400m.
By Hallowed Crown and out of the dam Dextrous, a Group Two winning miler who has produced Skilled (Group One winner) along with Group Two winners in Sidestep and Ambidexter, Flexible was admittedly advantaged by the Kensington circuit last start, but it was a big margin nonetheless.
Snitzify (subsequent winner), Julian Rock, No Excuses and Mars all came out of that contest to fill top three positions on last Wednesday's Sydney meeting and even Dalmatia Prince placed on the Friday Canterbury meeting, so the form is stacking up and she stays in the same grade.
