WA Guineas – Nov 21
1 – SECRET PLAN
Would have preferred he wasn’t scratched from the Ascot midweek meeting, but we’ll stay in his corner … for now.
2 – MAGICAL DREAM
Another from the cerise and white production line. Is 3 for 3 and comes off a Listed Belgravia Stakes win.
3 – SNICKERDOODLEDANDY
Like Magical Dream, is a filly and would need to back up from the Champion Fillies. Loved her return last weekend.
4 – DOM TO SHOOT
Costly for punters at his first two starts this prep, but his past two have been terrific. Building nicely.
5 – FIRST LAW
Only lightly raced, but did catch the eye at his first start back last Saturday week over 1200m. Worth tracking.Market Market
Railway Stakes – Nov 21
1 – KAY CEE
A Group 1 winner already. Was heavily backed first-up at Group 3 level when still underdone. Where there’s smoke…!
2 – INSPIRATIONAL GIRL
With Windstorm and Superstorm seemingly out of the equation, this girl looms as the No.1 seed for Bob and Sandra Peters.
3 – PLATOON
Neville Parnham tells it as it is. He is adamant last year’s Railway placegetter is back to his best and his Northerly run was a ripper.
4 – CUP NIGHT
Will need to elevate big time, but he’s getting close to a win of some note.
5 – RED CAN MAN
An on-speed prospect down in the weights … come on in, Red Can Man.Market Market
Winterbottom Stakes – Nov 28
1 – CLAIRVOYANCE
Figures she produces each start suggest she is a Group 1 horse every day of the week.
2 – TREKKING
Tough Godolphin gelding seeking redemption after not everything went his way 12 months ago. Still in excellent order.
3 – HEY DOC
Is not guaranteed of running, but if he heads west to defend his crown, look out.
4 – INDIAN PACIFIC
Handled his first big rise in class with aplomb in the Crawford. Live hope.
5 – STAGEMAN
Has returned in excellent order. Needs luck because of his racing pattern.Market Market
Kingston Town Classic – Dec 5
1 – KAY CEE
Doesn’t get the weight relief as she did in last year’s edition, but is proven at the level.
2 – MAGICAL DREAM
We only have to look at the history books to see how successful three-year-old fillies are in this race.
3 – MATERIAL MAN
Not getting any younger, but is a proven WFA performer and the distance suits.
4 – GAILO CHOP
Is also advancing in years, but has arrived in Perth and relished his time in WA 12 months ago.
5 – INSPIRATIONAL GIRL
Would be her toughest test, but is clearly above average.Market Market
Perth Cup – Jan 2
1 – MISSILE LAUNCH
Runner-up last year and is now back in the groove again.
2 – TRULY GREAT
One of the more intriguing runners entering the big-money races. Enormous upside.
3 – SPIRITUAL WARRIOR
Has had two trials in the lead-up to his return. In astute stable.
4 – NEUFBOSC
A runner in last year’s Melbourne Cup. His two trials for Neville Parnham have been encouraging.
5 – TAXAGANO
If his Northerly win is anything to go by, is a genuine each-way prospect.
