Scott Embry’s Sunday Pinjarra Preview

RACE 1 NIGHTS MYSTERY should be simply too quick for his opponents down the 1000m straight at the opening day of the Pinjarra Season. From barrier 7 in a 9 horse field William Pike should get very close to the outside fence and while in recent seasons it hasn’t been… Read More

Chris Nelson’s Sunshine Coast Best Bets

RACE 5 No.9 Nicci Trix In great form since coming north having bolted in at Eagle Farm her first local start before a game second last time out at Doomben. On that occasion she did track wide at times and worked in a swiftly run section of the race. She… Read More

Deane Lester’s Pakenham Best Bets

RACE 1 NO.3 HIGH ‘N’ DRY HIGH ‘N’DRY is ready to peak at his third run this campaign and represents the best value of the day when he contests the Benchmark 70 Handicap (1600m). The seven year old ran a solid first-up 2nd behind MAYBE THE BEST over 1300 metres… Read More

Scott Embry’s Saturday Esperance Preview

RACE 1 REBEL YELL was good at the opening meeting of the Esperance Bay Turf Club when finishing second to Alcina who was far from disgraced at the Tabtouch Regional Championship Final: The Road to Ascot last weekend. Is a fresh horse who can put together a few good runs… Read More

Chris Nelson’s Doomben Best Bets

RACE 5 No.1 Tiger Heart Placed both runs this prep he comes into tomorrow’s race off a slight break however with the benefit of a recent barrier trial should be ready to go. Unlucky not to have finished closer first up before arguably should have won last time out he… Read More

Chris Nelson’s Rosehill Best Bets

RACE 8 No.1 Francesco Guardi It’s the McDonald/Waller combination here with this ex UK galloper who will be having his fourth local start. Outgunned by his stablemate when probably just needing to see clear running earlier than the 200m last time out he drops in weight and should be striking… Read More

Scott Embry’s Saturday Ascot Preview

RACE 1 REVITUP is very quick and with the claim for Holly Watson gets in at an attractive 54kg. Only had two starts and has beaten Snowdome and then been nailed on the post by promising youngster Man Crush. If she can cross those inside her and find the fence… Read More

Runner by Runner: Kingston Town Classic

1. Regal Power (59kg) Trainer: Grant & Alana Williams Jockey: Patrick Carbery Barrier: 8 Caught the eye first-up in the Northerly Stakes when hitting the line against the pattern and then showed in the Lee Steere that he is back somewhere near the form he was in when he won… Read More

Scott Embry’s Thursday Northam Preview

RACE 1 GREAT FORTUNE looks the one to beat in a fairly moderate mile maiden. William Pike can have him siting just behind the likely leader Noble Scot and from there he has the race at his mercy. The way he has been racing suggests that the mile is exactly… Read More

Scott Embry’s Wednesday Belmont Preview

RACE 1 MAGIC TO EXCEED has come back to racing well this preparation and looks to have struck a winnable race. Finished third on Melbourne Cup Day behind Sparkling Blue and Astrape. With the apprentice going on he meets main rival Astrape 1.5kg better at the weights and should be… Read More
