Leggup | Two-State Quaddies

Comments

We landed the Sunshine Coast Quaddie last Saturday, which kept the ball rolling. Also found a few winners down south, but no joy locking in the four legs.

Down to just two venues today, form done for good track for Eagle farm and soft 6 at Cranbourne.

Good luck.

Eagle Farm

5-Benchmark 70 (1400m)

Best:  Liability –  wasn’t at home in the heavy 8 last start, but hel his ground in tougher company. Should be close to peak now.

Others

Mr Storm – the 1200m around Doomben was too short latest run. Third-up, slightly longer and bigger track should suit.

Slow Hands – first-up, not let go in recent trial behind Multaja. Placed against tougher opposition before a break, 2kg claim is a positive.

Fastnet Cyclone – resumes, likes it longer but usually runs well when fresh.

Numbers: 9, 5, 2, 6.

6-Benchmark 85 (1000m)

Best: Rock Beat – first-up, no trial form, but unbeaten in three runs when resuming and is two from two this track and distance.

Others

Hi Fiver – no luck last start when held-up at a crucial stage and should have finished closer.

Desert Man – went out too hard last start under a big weight. This harder but down 4kgs and gets a a good surface.

Wirnpa – close up last couple and won three runs back. Can get the gun run.

Invincible Gangsta – first-up since February, no trials, but goes well fresh and winner this trip.

Numbers: 3, 13, 12, 7, 8.

7-Benchmark 75 (1800m)

Best:  High Power – wasn’t suited at Ipswich. Widest runner on the home turn and closed well behind Tatcee and meets that horse much better at the weights.

Others

Pressway – ran well behind Countess De Galvez last Wednesday. Will handle the quick back-up and 1800m looks a good fit.

Merlin’s Magic – bolted in at the Gold Coast and followed that up with a strong second in BM68 last start.

Tatcee – super fit, also backs-up after 5th to Countess De Galvez. In the money six of seven this track.

Numbers: 4, 7, 12, 3.

8-Benchmark 68 (1200m)

Best: Kalik – third-up and two runs in good. Was beaten under 3lens in Listed race then latest didn’t handle the heavy. Blinkers go on, good alley, claim, ticks some boxes.

Others

Astro Toy Boy – nice horse, not started since January. Gelded before a spell and looked good winning two Gold Coast trials.

Schweid As – two runs this prep’ have been solid and drops in grade here.

Daulat Tai Panaziz – taken back to last here most recent run and flashed home to finish on the heels of the placegetters. Looks to have plenty of upside.

Numbers: 1, 2, 5, 7.

Cranbourne

5-Benchmark 64 (1400m)

Best: Bacchus – Waller runner better for first-up run when not knocked about.

Others

Miss Polanski – usually takes a run or two to come to hand, nice second latest this track.

Sunset Eagle – wide no cover for much of the trip at Cranbourne last start, better draw this time.

Diode – fitter for first-up second, honest.

Numbers: 5, 13, 14, 3.

6-Benchmark 64 (1200m)

Best: Oxley Jack – given no peace last start when led, but fought on well in tougher city grade.

Others

Celeritate Regem – won Donald last time out, on speed runner and likes the sting out of the track.

That Song – shunted deep on the turn and worked home well after balanced up.

Harlem Blues – Snowden runner that scored dominant (2.75lens) Maiden win, at third start, on Ballarat synthetic.

Miss Entice – resumes, jumped and ran in a recent 1000m Mornington jump-out and races well this track.

Numbers: 7, 6, 8, 12, 13.

7-Benchmark 70 F&M (1000m)

Best: Salty Kisses – worked hard in the run and battled for fourth at Sandown latest, honest mare.

Others

Vahvuus – beat Salty Kisses home when first-up last start. Can only be fitter.

Snap Crackle Boom – resuming since December, but has had two jump-outs. Won on debut and failed only other start before spelled.

Raven’s Blaze – fitter for first-up run, not disgraced against tougher company than this before a spell.

Numbers: 10, 11, 12, 1.

8-Benchmark 64 (2025m)

Best: Grinzinger Allee – meeting far inferior opposition after great second to Walking Flying last start.

Others

Auf Weidersehen – made a mid-race move and kept going for strong win latest. Wetter the better.

Magazine – honest filly coming off a big win at Wangaratta, s8ure to be finishing off strongly.

Numbers: 2, 8, 5.
