Greg Hooper’s Northam Preview

Greg Hooper’s Preview


At the prices on offer going for NISHI’S LAD who should improve sharply on his last start where he was second-up over 2200m. He looks a dour stayer and can win. FLEDERMAUS is the obviously one on form and Pike rides. CUVEE LOUISE and TE MANU look the other chances.

Numbers – 5 – 2 – 8 – 3

Suggested Bet –  Nishi’s Lad save Fledermaus


ACHMED backs from a good effort on Saturday in a much better standard of race than this. If he can reproduce that performance he goes close. AIN’T BAD is hard to catch but this looks type of race. STARRY DANE and SUNSET SUPERMAN both have strong claims.

Numbers – 1 – 3 – 5 – 2

Suggested Bet – Achmed and Ain’t Bad


MY IRIDIUM has been a little disappointing in her three career starts however this is a very weak maiden and the blinkers go on. She can run a race at double figure prices. CASH ON CALL has looked good in his trials. EARTHSHAKER was very good in defeat at Pinjarra. SPIRITUAL LIFT will sit on the speed and give a sight.

Numbers – 7 – 4 – 2 – 5

Suggested Bet –  My Iridium and Cash On Call


DIRECT APPROACH led and gave a big sight first-up. From gate 1 he can lead or box seat and get every chance. FINAL OUTCOME raced a bit flat last start. Pike retains the ride and he can improve sharply. SCANDAVISTA will need some luck from her wide draw. WULFFGIRL showed enough at the trials to suggest she has some ability.

Numbers – 4 – 5 – 7 – 12

Suggested Bet – Direct Approach win


COULEUR BIZARRE is a ten start maiden however he probably hasn’t had a better opportunity to shake that tag in his career than what he contests today. The mile suits and he has drawn to either or box seat. MIXED MESSAGES will get off the speed and work home well. TOUCH THE CLOUDS has shown ability in her career. THAT BLOKE makes his debut for the Darren Macauliffe yard and Pike takes the ride.

Numbers – 2 – 9 – 8 – 7

Suggested Bet – Couleur Bizarre win


PUYSIEX should appreciate dropping back to 1000m. He has drawn to lead and take plenty of catching. BRITELLA is another who will race on the speed. PRODUCTION is the one to beat if she can reproduce what she displayed first-up. GUNFIRE has always shown some ability at the trials but has been unable to display at the races to date.

Numbers – 2 – 6 – 5 – 4

Suggested Bet –  Puysiex and Britella


TOMMY WHO looks one of the better bets on the card. Last preparation he broke his maiden with a big fresh win and then ran well against the pattern at Bunbury. He resumes without a trial but should have the class to beat these. SILVER TRACE will roll forward and give a sight on the speed. HIGH FIDELITY is  a very capable mare. WESTEROS next best.

Numbers – 3 – 6 – 2 – 4

Suggested Bet – Tommy Who win


Good finish to the day. Going for some value with JOUKAKU. She showed ability last campaign and was asked for nothing in a recent trial. USHERETTE won her maiden in top fashion. She measures up at this level. NOBLE SAVAGE was a big debut winner and then was caught wide. MYAKE MAK next best.

Numbers – 7 – 9 – 1 – 11

Suggested Bet – Joukaku and Usherette


RACE 5 –  2, 7, 8, 9
