Gosford Tips September 8


Gosford Best Bet - Race 1 No. 1 Kooled

Holding Golden Rose and Caulfield nominations is this striking grey colt and there was clearly an opinion of him early, where following a narrow defeat in a Canterbury Maiden on debut, he was sent out as favourite in the Sires' Produce Stakes at Flemington.

Among the field via that Group Two on March 6 was Lightsaber, Saif (beat Converge at his next start), Paulele (won his next two at Stakes level) along with the likes of Forgot You and Daily Bugle, so it was a very handy line up where Kooled loomed as the winner before tiring.

The August 26 trial at Rosehill was a stronger piece of work to the eye than what he'd produced earlier in the year, a 900m heat that the half-brother to Dawn Dawn (Group Two winner) could've won by much further and J-Mac taking the reins is a strong lead for Wednesday.


Gosford Value Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Maurice's Medad

Another one who was spruiked early (supported to win a Breeders Plate on debut) was this now three-year-old, but getting over further has been the key along with racing on firm tracks, as he didn't handle a Soft 7 and was completely hopeless in two heavy track runs.

Showing class when beating older rivals at Hawkesbury back in April 5, I felt Maurice's Medad would've have done the same the start prior at Randwick-Kensington if it weren't for that soft track, an event taken out by Coastwatch, a subsequent Group Three winner.

He finished next to a Stakes-placed Gin Martini on that occasion, a filly that arguably should've beaten Converge at her next start, with this colt runner-up to the JJ Atkins winner on April 17 and beaten as a drifting favourite fresh on a heavy track, he's worth another look.


Gosford Favourite - Race 4 No. 3 Pippali

There was a touch of quality about Pippali in her first preparation, showing a nice turn-turn-of foot on debut before breaking her Maiden at Kembla Grange and her campaign ended at that same circuit with a third in the Group Three Kembla Grange Classic.

While the 1100m for her first-up assignment was certainly on the sharp side, she had zero luck in that August 25 attempt at Randwick-Kensington, which was effectively another barrier trial when on heels until the 100m before finishing off late.

Both official trials leading into that return were quite strong and while the four-year-old carries an extra 2kg from that fresh tilt, she does drop back to a BM72 against her own sex, where the extra 100m for this second-up assignment does suit.


Gosford Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Ocean Emperor

Returning on Wednesday is this gelding from the Bjorn Baker stable, a galloper was heavily supported prior to his debut run at Randwick-Kensington on April 15 last year ($2.60-$2.10), getting the cash in a brave victory before pulling up sore behind Peltzer and co.

He was then gelded and won first-up at Wyong in October before failing in a Listed attempt, while the only horse that stopped him from making it a hat-trick of victories in March was Lost And Running, a gun sprinter that has already booked an Everest slot.

In that same event on March 23, Ocean Emperor comfortably beat home Irish Angel (won her next two in town) and Marway (won three of his next four and is now an 89-rater), which reads superbly for this BM72 and he's won a trial leading into this return.
