Scott Embry’s Pinjarra Preview

Race 1

MARTAHLIA has put together two encouraging maiden performances and gets her chance in a very weak opener on a questionable surface. Expecting a soft6 or heavy7 so playing with caution early. FAIR FOOT showed on debut that she has no issues with a rain affected track, hitting the line hard enough to suggest a win would come sooner rather than later. UNIVERSAL MAE found traffic last start and should get a cheap run. CAYMAN BOUND gets every possible chance from the inside.

Numbers: 14 – 15 – 13 – 8


Race 2

SPEEDING COMET takes on the older gallopers here and looks well placed to get the cash. His only run down the Pinjarra straight produced a barnstorming second placing to Gee Boss beating home Dainty Tess who boasts strong 3 year old form-lines. WAR JEUNE is yet to taste defeat first-up and resumes off the back of two very casual trials. He is a raw but talented galloper on the rise. SEEKER is one from one down the straight five. COUNT TOMOZ OFF has a degree of X-factor about him.

Numbers: 9 – 7 – 2 – 10

Race 3

READY TO FIRE has been building to this sort of race all preparation. She is a tiny little mare who does her best work beyond 2000m and in the soft going. She gets those conditions and Chris Parnham is a positive riding engagement. I DONE IT will likely slide across the front of the field to take up the running. His track and wet going records speak for themselves, he will be in front for a long way. LE SCHILLER grows a leg and a motor in the rain, hard to ignore his booming last start victory. PUSH TO PASS is a query at the trip but has the form-lines to win.

Numbers: 12 – 5 – 11 – 6


Race 4

PINZU is in career best form and while he runs into some very handy genuine 72+ types he gets the weight relief to suit. NORTH RIDGE has been knocking on the door all campaign slaving away in unsuitable Listed sprint races. This 1500m is a perfect for him. ROSMARTINI is a super talented mare, her first-up run was an eye catcher and her wet track stats do similar. POUNAMU was the punters worst enemy for almost 12 months but has now become a cult hero of the state looking to make it 4 wins from his last 5.

Numbers: 10 – 4 – 14 – 3

Suggested Bet – PINZU EACHWAY

Race 5

ELLICAZOOM is a classy filly who comes up against a very underwhelming field and on the weights should simply be far too strong. Has beaten the likes of Caipirinha, Lusaha, Saul’s Special and Whispering Brook. If she is anywhere near fit she holds a mortgage over this race. ENCHANTED DREAM is a filly on the rise and if this race was 1400m could make it interesting but over the shorter course most would expect the favourite to be too strong. DIAMOND PRINCESS is drawn to lead and is both a Pinjarra and soft track winner. AKIKO could add value to exotics.

Numbers: 8 – 10 – 9 – 11

Suggested Bet – ELLICAZOOM WIN

Race 6

KRAKKA VISION returns to the track fresh off a 2 month let up after contesting the Listed mares feature events over the summer carnival. She is super talented, however, like most of the fancies drawn awkwardly. ANOTHER VISION has reeled off some very impressive sectionals in strong races this preparation, her effort in the Bunbury Sizzle was eye catching and appeals at odds. MISS SONDRIO was knocked off her perch last start for the first time this campaign after notching four straight victories. She is an exciting type. SHE’S A VIRTUE has been out of the money for a long time but drawn perfectly and well weighted she can lead and give cheek.

Numbers: 5 – 14 – 6 – 4


Race 7

KENTOO was a super impressive debut winner at Ascot last weekend and off a 7 day break he can go very close to keeping his undefeated record intact.  Undeniably talented youngster who looks as though he will improve with racing and distance. ACHERNAR STAR is the perfect juvenile galloper, well build, well educated and mature. He deserves to be favourite and the only legitimate concern is the barrier. THE SHOE is a stable mate of on top selection Kentoo and comes to the races after a freshen up.  Still very green so senior rider on is a massive plus. MY DEMI looks the winner last weekend before being swamped.

Numbers: 2 – 1 – 3 – 5

Suggested Bet – KENTOO EACHWAY

Race 8

RED PADDY is one of the most consistent horses in WA and if he can reproduce anything like his emphatic win last weekend he will go close. RED PUBLISHER is always around the mark and his form around Settler’s Creek is arguably stronger than most of these. NATURALISTE looks one as though he will get a soft run just behind the leaders from barrier 1 and can give another cheeky sight at big odds. GATTING was all the rage last start with punters climbing out of trees to jump aboard but things fizzled out pretty quickly. Drops back sharply in distance but must respect him.

Numbers: 9 – 7 – 16 – 15



8 / 4, 5, 6, 14 / 1, 2, 3 / 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 15, 16
