WINNO'S WINNERS: EAGLE FARM, APRIL 27

By Darren Winningham | Friday, April 26, 2019

EAGLE FARM RACES – SATURDAY 27 APRIL 2019

Eagle Farm this weekend with the track rated “GOOD.” The rail is out 7 metres the entire course. The weather looks promising for the rest of the week so we should be racing on a surface that will be great for racing.

I am in Hong Kong at the invitation of the Hong Kong Jockey Club with the prestigious FWD Champion’s Day. So, this week we will be brief and straight to the point.

I am going to say no favourites will win on this program – well maybe one! A WINNO ‘bold statement’.

NB: As this form assessment was made prior to race-day, please check final fields and track conditions for any changes on the day.

***************************************************************************************************

Race 1

I think Tony Gollan may start off the day on a winning note with Oakfield Monarch (6) at around the $7 mark. I think he has been looking for this longer distance. There Is a key booking of Blake Shinn – look for this one to settle and storm home late.

The danger is the David Vandyke trained Coral Coast (5) who posted a win last start in a midweek meeting at Doomben. There has been some good support for this one since the markets have opened.

Selections: 6-5-3-4

**************************************************************************************************

Race 2

Le Juge (3) has been racing in great consistent form for the Chris Waller stables at the Gold Coast. Could be a race to race double for Blake Shinn. He is favourite and looks a great chance here after posting two successive wins.

The stable mate is Veladero (7) who will be better suited at Eagle Farm – Jeff Lloyd is aboard.

Michael Costa has two runners here as well – The Chairman (4) and Gold Ambition (10). Gold Ambition (10) likes to get back and make a sustained run late. As long as the leaders are not dominating with the rail out 7metres I think he may be the one finishing the race off fastest.

Selections: 3-10-7-4 rough chance 2

*************************************************************************************************

Race 3

The Avenger (7) is another Chris Waller runner that I thought would appreciate the step up to the mile this weekend. His recent runs suggest that he is looking for the longer distance and Ryan Maloney is in the saddle. Impasse (5) is the stable mate who deserves a change of luck.

Shogun Sun (12) is the pre post favourite and he ran a wonderful race last start here over 1400 metres. This is his first effort at the mile in his career – however, the last start would indicate that the extra 200 metres will be no issue.

Mymming (14) won here last start. Trained by Stuart Kendrick on the Sunshine Coast – this mare can usually string back to back wins once she strikes form. Be careful of this runner.

Selections: 7-12-14-5 rough chance 11
