Gosford Tips May 16

Railway Hotel Class 1 & Maiden Plate Tips (Race 6)

Gosford Best Bet - Race 6 No. 2 Earth Dance

While he couldn't land bets as a well backed fav on Australian debut, the Team Snowden still performed well in that Randwick Kensington run (second fastest last 200m of the race).

Even though he wa stepping up to a more suitable journey second-up, Earth Dance was a slight drifter in a Canterbury BM72, where the four-year-old got back in a slowly run affair.

As far getting a distance run under the belt, that last performance was still a pass mark and he only goes up 1kg despite coming back in grade to a set weights Class 1 at the provincials.

Gosford Roughie - Race 7 No. 3 Whetu

He'll improve off whatever is delivered here second-up, however, it's not a strong BM64 and off an encouraging return effort, Whetu comes into calculations on Thursday.

The son of Dundeel worked home in restricted room first-up over 1500m, yet he recorded the fastest last 200m of the race and getting on to wetter ground here is a tick.

He was unlucky in a stronger race second-up last campaign and the penny did drop in that prep, with the highlight being a comprehensive Wyong victory in this grade on a Soft 6.

Buterin L'estrange F&M BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Gosford Value Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Flightcrew

While she didn't breakthrough over her first two campaigns, Flightcrew did contest some handy maidens over that period and the filly is a more furnished galloper this time in.

After recording a maiden triumph first-up at Hawkesbury, the daughter of Epaulette went back-to-back via Kembla Grange Class 1 on April 20 and that was on a Soft 5 surface.

There was plenty of merit to that last performance, with the three-year-old surging late despite covering ground and she loses nothing with Tommy Berry in the saddle third-up.

Gosford Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 3 Norton Road

He's always shown ability and although it didn't look a strong maiden, two other winners have been produced from his Wyong debut event on January 18, which he won easily.

Norton Road remained unbeaten before a spell, with the gelding taking out a Class 1 at Newcastle and margin flattered his rivals, as he did lay out at key stages in that race.

A left-handed and strong senior rider in Aaron Bullock going on suits, and he was aboard for a second behind city class sprinter Much Much Better in an April 23 trial at Wyong.
