Goulburn Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Scream And Shout
John O'Shea has trained 20 winners this autumn at a strike rate of 19.2% and at Goulburn over the last 12 months, has saddled up six winners at a strike rate of 35.3%, preparaing a strong team to build further on that via the April 27 card.
He brings Scream And Shout to Goulburn, a galloper who is set to resume in his second racing preparation after showing ability in his first two outings, most notably the September 12 debut at Kembla Grange when rattling home for third behind subsequent city winner Count De Rupee.
The son of Nicconi returns as a gelding following a fifth-place finish in a strong Maiden at Randwick Kensington, a performance where he did over-race prior to laying-in, but off the back of a strong second trial, can have the last shot at Jimmy's Dream, who is the main threat.
RJ SIDNEY CRAIG F&M BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)
Goulburn Value Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Lady Kirkham
This mare did find the sprint trips too sharp over her first two fresh attempts, however, has improved since they've elected to resume at 1400m, with a Maiden win back in 2019 and a runner-up finish to Marsannay last winter.
The subsequent form of that three-year-old (placed behind Yao Dash, won a 72 two starts later) reads superbly for a Benchmark 58 and although she was well held behind that Waterhouse & Bott runner, Lady Kirkham never handled the heavy track which assisted in the winning margin.
All of her better form does come on Good tracks and although a long way off multiple Group One winner Trekking via a April 19 heat, she was fair late considering that opposition and at big odds, isn't hopeless here from a good draw with the 2kg claim.

Goulburn Best Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Hurt Money
Set to return in what is quite a modest race via the sixth from Goulburn is this Snowden-trained three-year-old who has been gelded ahead of a third racing preparation, showing fair form over five runs to date.
By I Am Invincible and out of the dam Zingaling, a Group Two winning sprinter, Hurt Money broke his Maiden at Hawkesbury over the 1000m before going straight to a Benchmark 72 at Canterbury where he was reeled in late by Estrado in an event that has produced multiple city winners.
Following a quieter piece of work on April 9, he has tuned up for this return with a solid hit-out over the 1050m at Randwick on April 20 when boxing-on well for second after leading and then being collared by Southern Lad, a genuine Stakes class sprinter.
