Randwick - Race 4 No. 9 The Face
THE FACE. After a big debut win, the son of Rubick was well backed in the Rosebud but on a Heavy track, found Ole Kirk and Anders too classy and was then tipped out. Resumed this campaign with a brave second after being pestered throughout and was tough again as the only on-speed runner to stick on in the Gosford Guineas, where it took a smart Forbidden Love to roll him.
Back to 1100m here and fitter, he looks superbly placed for a much-deserved victory.
Sandown - Race 4 No. 2 Mosh Music
MOSH MUSIC was favourite last start behind Defibrillate after a great run second-up in the Lord Stakes at Caulfield. She was pushed a little further forward than what her usual racing pattern is so expect her to be ridden cold over 2400m in this race. She has a great turn of foot so if she can be within five lengths of the leaders on the turn, she has a long straight to be able to run them down.
Doomben - Race 4 No. 1 Garibaldi
This horse has struck a strong vein of form this prep after promising quote a lot over his career.
He has had three starts this prep, winning his last two in class two races, the latest at Eagle Farm in December and the form around him has been very strong at this level.
He seems to be answering all questions put before him this prep and now with Michael Rodd in the saddle, he gets another top line jockey aboard to steer him home.
With a little luck in running from a wide barrier, he should be able to string three wins on end.
Sandown - Race 5 No. 2 Quantum Mechanic
An even race outside of the favourite QUANTUM MECHANIC who does look the best bet of the day. She comes into this race third-up off the back of a strong third behind Fundraiser over the mile. Last preparation when third-up, she was third in the Adelaide Guineas behind Game Keeper and Hypercane which is much stronger form than this race. She is a little bit of a non-winner though which does scare many punters, but her form is better than this lot and she should be putting them to the sword with Jamie Kah on.
Randwick - Race 6 No. 4 Sacramento
SACRAMENTO. Following a brave Boxing Day return when working throughout as by far the pick the on-paced brigade, this gelding recorded a tough victory on January 9. After doing the donkey work in carting the field up to a tearaway leader there, it was a much better win than the margin indicated and in this field, does look the logical leader at 2000m.
Meets New Arrangement 1.5kg better off from that, is still on an upwards spiral and is the obvious selection here.
