Greymouth Assessment Jan 14
That is the primary 12 months Westland Racing Membership has raced at Omoto after its personal monitor at Hokitika was pressured to shut by the NZ Racing Authority. The membership had a alternative between racing at KUmara and Omoto and it was a wise alternative because the Kumara membership was having bother with their monitor with moist climate and wild pigs digging up a part of the backstretch.
The monitor at Omoto for this meet was a sluggish 8 or sluggish 7 which was not unhealthy contemplating the quantity of rain within the district on Sunday two days earlier than this meet.
I initially sorted my horses for heavy monitor however needed to change some when issues obtained so significantly better.
Here is how I went;
Race 1-I’ve supported Grand Specific and The Buffer on this space; they each raced the eleventh with Grand Specific second and The Buffer seventh. The Buffer misplaced six lengths final day trip and completed lower than 5 lengths behind the winner, so it was properly value placing into play. The favourite Expressive had its fourth begin in 9 days, so I reported it .
Outcome; Expressive gained paying $3.50 and $1.30, The Buffer was second at $1.50 and Grand Specific third at $1.50.
Race 2-Wynmoore, Crop and Bruzo had been those I backed right here, with $4 Crop being the shortest odds of the trio.
Thought Wynmoore would really like the sluggish monitor. Crop completed second to Reefton whereas Bruzo gained on Saturday. So I supported him and determined to return with him.
Wynmoore set the tone and I used to be satisfied he was going to hold on, however Bruzo, who was final within the backstretch, got here simply exterior and gained properly in opposition to Promising and Wynmoore.
Bruzo had a file of three wins from eleven begins, which was significantly higher than the bulk within the area.
Race 3-Shadow King, High Laurels and Regionally Sauced had been the three I backed right here. I used to be going to again The Bumper on a heavy monitor however when the beat obtained again to a sluggish 8 I let it go. Shadow King gained this award by paying round $3.50 for a win. High Laurels was disappointing whereas Regionally Sauced did not.
Race 4-It was a mediocre area however I assumed My Hugo who gained on Saturday would win once more however he was upset. Are You Cereal gained this, a maiden with Saturday’s maiden winners eligible to compete. Are You Cereal was solely on his fourth begin. He had completed fourth at Reefton the earlier Wednesday, so he was on a seven-day save. Secret Runner was the favourite; he had his fourth begin in 9 days. He gained the 2000m on Saturday and fell again to 1500m this time, which put me off.
Race 5 – This was one other race of combined type however I backed up Ripinroll who had completed fourth at Reefton the earlier Wednesday ending inside two lengths of the winner that day. He got here in by means of a nostril right here at odds of 8/1. Vee Twelve completed second. I supported this horse at Reefton however he was altering from a 2000m race to 1500m. Billy Mav was the opposite horse I backed and he was disappointing. He gained on track and distance on his earlier begin.
Race 6 – This was a weight-for-age race for fillies and mares, however apprentices had been eligible. Go determine! Anyway, in these races you go for the best rated horses and on this race it was Ticket to Experience, Torre Del Greco and Dreaming Straightforward in that order. Torro DEL Greco gained the Ticket to Experience race with Hazelnut third.
Race 7 – This was an open affair with good odds on provide. I supported a number of, they had been Maintain the Money, O’Shannon, Method Above and Garment.
O’Shannon and Method Above are horses educated by Kevin Myers and I needed to again each as they had been at good odds whereas Maintain the Money at 8/1 was value backing on a sluggish monitor. Garment is a identified moist tracker and was going from a 1100m race on Saturday to a 1500m race, plus the sluggish monitor and 3kg apprentice declare was all the time going to go well with him.
Garment led all the way in which at 25/1, Method Above was additionally second at 25/1, Maintain the Money was third at round 9/1
