Scott Embry’s Wednesday Ascot Preview

RACE 1 PAT’S GOT SASS was a better trial than Policiere (winner of 2 races and jumped favourite in the Listed Supremacy Stakes). Her 400m jump out was excellent when attacking the line under a chokehold and then went past Policiere impressively over 950m. Kept safe in Karrakatta Plate betting… Read More

Scott Embry’s Sunday Ascot Preview

RACE 1 KAZOKU ran well on debut after settling back in the field from a wide gate. Hit the line hard and from the inside draw should get a far more economical run in transit. Should go well and strikes a weak maiden. TUMIVET brings some intrigue after defeated 3… Read More

Scott Embry’s Saturday Esperance Preview

RACE 1 WHEATSTACK THEIF like many of these is on the 6 day back-up from Esperance Cup Day and ran second in the most prevalent form reference behind Liquidity. Ran well at his last two and with the winkers on and the quick back-up from an ideal draw he gets… Read More

Chris Nelson’s Eagle Farm Best Bets

RACE 1 No.8 Leaglese Tricky race the opener tomorrow however this filly gives me the impression she’s ready to fire third up. No hope against the tempo first up she then ran on nicely here a fortnight back clocking the quickest final 200m of the race. What made that more… Read More

Chris Nelson’s Randwick Best Bets

RACE 5 No.8 Written Beauty The Group 2 Challenge Stakes sees only 3 runners under double figure odds at this early stage with Nature Strip set to go around at a very short quote. Whilst many feel he’s a certainty in this race the only certainty I see is a… Read More

Scott Embry’s Saturday Bunbury Preview

RACE 1 FAIR GRACE has looked impressive at trials. In her first trial she sat leader’s back behind Quintus (in this race) and looked to have plenty to give when untested and bolting to the eye. At her second trial she landed out the back in a slowly run 950m… Read More

Scott Embry’s Friday Geraldton Preview

RACE 1 MACHALI had her first start in WA and ran a narrow second behind Out of Fashion. This race may only have 7 horses but really should be at least $4 the field because on recent ratings there is <1.5L best to worst on paper. Looks a live chance… Read More

Scott Embry’s Thursday Albany Preview

RACE 1 ZEEWIJK backs up off 6 days from the meeting at Mt Barker last Friday. Gets out to 1600m, gets some weight relief with Snaggers Sardelic’s 3kg claim and in a race which looks SJ Wolfe vs Roy Rogers we might see the Wolfe Man peg one back. Looks… Read More

Scott Embry’s Wednesday Pinjarra Preview

RACE 1 DIAMOND BLUE returns first-up no trial down the 1000m straight and is drawn ideally in gate 8. Has gate speed (won a 400m trial in blistering time), drawn to get himself to the outside fence and all three runs in his initial preparation were all super. Strange that… Read More
