Goulburn Tips April 8


Goulburn Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Rock The Dream

After a mediocre first racing preparation last winter, this filly was given some time and has clearly improved this campaign, whacking away fairly for a midfield finish behind Impressive Lass fresh, who bolted in via her next start before a second in the Albury Guineas.

Rock The Dream remained at 1200m second-up at Wyong and didn't receive much luck, forced to make a few runs when wide throughout in a muddling affair, but still found the line well for third considering.

The odds-on favourite Spicy Restaurant brings the best form but has also had plenty of chances and with the step up to 1400m suiting this three-year-old now, she should get every chance from barrier one with senior hoop Blaike McDougall now taking the reins.


Goulburn Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Mr Magical

This gelding has always shown ability, winning his first two starts which included a first-up victory last winter where he safely accounted for Proud Mia, a speedy filly that recorded a winning hat-trick over the summer and is rated above anything this field.

With a few Highway attempts where he was well in the market and a few appearances at Country level, Mr Magical wasn't able to progress further despite still being competitive over his next five outings, where he was consistently high in the market.

While there is a little more depth to this contest, the son of Magic Albert notched up a confidence boosting victory last start, recovering from a tardy getaway and only going up a kilo here, is the fit and in-form runner in this line-up that is capable pf progressing further.


Goulburn Value Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Post Free

With eight winners on this circuit over the last 12 months at a strike rate of 29.6%, we always have to respect the strong local Danny Williams stable at Goulburn who prepares this mare for her third-up assignment.

By Olympic Glory and out of the High Chapparal mare Jarilee, a winner over 2800m, Post Free is bred to get over a trip so while the step to a mile will suit on Thursday, she may be able to get over the staying journeys deeper into the autumn.

After recording back-to-back wins last November, the four-year-old had excuses in a Highway attempt when held-up for much of the run home and tipped out following that, has had excuses in two performances this preparation (Heavy track first-up then found a leader-biased deck at Albury).

Post Free (Race 5) has had excuses in her last two attempts and can improve at an each-way price.
