Trent Cooper’s Gloucester Park Preview

Race 1

SCARLET RIBBON (6) will attempt to maintain her unbeaten record in WA but meets her toughest challenge to date. ACHARNE GIRL (3) resumes from a break and has trialled nicely at Pinjarra and can play a part from this draw. IN THE SPOTLIGHT (9) has won her last four in fine style but must contend with a horror draw tonight. DONTBESILLYCHILLY (12) battled on well when 2nd to IN THE SPOTLIGHT (9) at her last start but will need luck in running to upset the more fancied runners.

Tips: 6 3 9 12

Suggested Bet: SCARLET RIBBON (6) to win.

Race 2

SEERYANFLY (5) won four on end before a disappointing 11th at his last start but can bounce back tonight. LONGREACH BAY (4) resumes tonight after trialling nicely at Byford and has always shown above average ability. COOPER (7) has been impressive in winning his last two standing start races and returns to the mobile here but has drawn outside of his main rivals. ROKORICO (1) is racing well and the pole draw will help offset the class rise.

Suggested Bet: SEERYANFLY (5) to win.

Race 3

VALBONNE (1) has been racing well for weeks and finally gets the draw to improve his numerical form. RUPERT OF LINCOLN (2) is racing well despite not having won for over six months and is a definite winning chance from the draw.  FANCI A DANCE (6) is the class runner of the field but has also not won for some time but is suited in this company. EUPHORIA (11) is similar to most of the main chances in that he has been very consistent without winning and will not be far away if there is a solid tempo.

Tips: 1 2 6 11

Suggested Bet: VALBONNE (1) to win.

Race 4

LAVRA JOE (1) was a champion juvenile who has been off the scene for twelve months but was impressive in winning a Bunbury trial for his return.

Tips: 1 2 5 4

Suggested Bet: LAVRA JOE (1) to win.

Race 5

JUMPINGJACKMAC (1) was disappointing off a 21 day break last week but will strip fitter tonight.

Suggested Bet: JUMPINGJACKMAC (1) to win.

Race 6

ANGEL IN WHITE (7) is back in mares company after beating the boys last week and has the depth to overcome the wide draw.

MISS LIMELIGHT (6) is a good sit and kick mare who can play a part if the race is run to suit. LADY JADORE (2) is the best drawn of the main chances and she will be thereabouts at the finish.

Tips: 7 5 6 2

Suggested Bet: ANGEL IN WHITE (7) to win.

Race 7

BLITZEMBYE (11) surprised by running over the more fancied stable mate last week and if he handles his first attempt at the stand can overcome the 20m handicap.  MIDDLEPAGE (7) is racing well but faces the tapes for only the second time in his career. JOEY JAMES (2) has won from the stand and has the front line advantage over his main rivals. AMERICAN BULLITT (6) is an experienced stand performer who is capable of winning from the right run in transit.

Tips: 11 7 2 6

Suggested Bet: BLITZEMBYE (11) to win.

Race 8

THE GOOD LIFE (11) is extremely consistent and won impressively at Bunbury and can repeat here. SOHO GIGOLO (1)  has the draw advantage here and will give a great sight.

Tips: 11 1 5 6

Suggested Bet: THE GOOD LIFE (11) to win.

Race 9

Tips: 4 1 3 2

Suggested Bet: BEAT CITY (4) to win.

Race 10

RONALD SCOTT (1) is drawn to control the race and is definitely the one to beat  REDDY TO FLY (3) is a last start winner who is coming of a short break and ran 3rd to Lavra Joe in a recent Bunbury trial. LOW FLYIN (4) has been sound in his two runs back from a spell and is a place chance from his awkward draw.

Tips: 1 3 4 2

Suggested Bet: RONALD SCOTT (1) to win.

Race 11
