WAKEFIELD PARK BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP Tips (Race 5)
Goulburn Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 4 Lady Kirkham
They elected to resume at 1400m at Goulburn on April 27 where we did send her out at 20/1 as the Value Bet on that card, but despite a solid return there, we had to settle for fourth.
With no winning second-up form, Lady Kirkham was heavily supported at Queanbeyan last start ($5.50 - $3.70) and loomed as the winner in the run home before peaking on her effort late, still putting two lengths on the next runner home in the process.
The five-year-old had some decent form lines from last winter, a preparation in which she did win third-up over this distance and with the visors back on, is worth another chance on Friday, stripping fitter with that mile run under her belt.
CAMPBELL PETROLEUM BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP Tips (Race 6)
Goulburn Best Bet - Race 6 No. 11 Stormborn
Was hopeful of a better price given she is first-up since last winter, but the trials have been sound and making her stable debut for Mark Newnham, he's found a very weak race to kick off her NSW career on Friday.
The daughter of Headwater began her time with the Hayes & Dabernig yard and showed promise in her first two-year-old campaign, recording two Metropolitan placings over the summer before resuming in July and winning her Maiden in soft fashion.
Winning a Randwick trial over the 737m dash before battling on quite well in a strong 1040m heat behind Group One winner Savatiano, Stormborn does look ready to produce fresh over five-furlongs, likely settling handy under Tyler Schiller.
KILPATRICK METAL RECYCLERS BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP Tips (Race 8)
Goulburn Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Blaazay
This lightly raced five-year-old has been very competitive in all four starts to date including his May 2 return at the Sapphire Coast, finding a fast run sprint a little sharp, but he still finished off well for third.
Despite winning a March trial last year prior to his debut, the market didn't want anything to do with Blaazay prior to that first race day appearance ($4.40 - $11.00) and it mattered not, with the son of Skilled storming home to get on the board straight away.
He was a big drifter again at start two ($7.50 - $20.00) in a race that he likely wins with a better gate while finally drawing a barrier on Friday, he can settle much closer to the speed and get the favours in what isn't a strong race.
