WEEKEND POST MORTEM – February 11/13

Chris Scholtz reviews racing around Australia on February 11 and 13.

THE STARS

WINX: Say no more – an absolute gem!


BLACK HEART BART: If WInx is racing’s darling, here’s our street fighter – love the way he just keeps getting the job done.

JOSH PARR: Daring ride on Global Glamour brought him an important win for top stable. Has some big chances coming up.

KRIS LEES: Three Group wins on one day a first for one of the best strike rate stables in Australia.

KATELYN MALLYON/ANDREW NOBLET: Had the right horse to take advantage of the Caulfield pattern.

KELLY DOUGHTY: Has done a great job to win five straight with the promising Arki after the horse had two years off.

JEFF LLOYD/TOBY EDMONDS: A fine Saturday treble for this hot combination. Seems to be standard fare for them these days.

SIN BIN

HIPPARCHUS: Sacked.

DOTHRAKI: The one they wanted and they left in again. No more.

HANWRITTEN: Found wanting under pressure. Limited.

EL DIVINO: He’s a long way removed from his big brother

RIDES OF THE DAY

HUGH BOWMAN: Mr Cool was copy book perfect on Winx.

BRAD RAWILLER: Go the monkey off his back with two well-judged winning rides.

CRAIG WILLIAMS: I’ll say it again – when he’s hot none are better.

TALKING POINTS

CAULFIELD: Will we get a fair track on Blue Diamond day?

TOM MELBOURNE: Why did they change tactics? What will they do next time? Was anybody watching?

CHAUTAUQUA: Is he still the best sprinter? Should he go to 1400m or further? Plenty to ponder!

MORPHETTVILE BOMB SCARE: Shades of the The Fireman/Sheil Sail bomb scare at Randwick in the 1970s. Smarties still reckon it was a signal?

MONEY TALKS

SECOND BULLET: Big go when smarties realised he would get first use of the leaderish track.

FUHRYK: Punters were well and truly on the Craig Williams/Lindsay Park bandwagon with this filly.

DARREN WEIR: The ‘Back Weir, Drink Beer’ disciples had plenty to celebrate after Black Heart Bart and Burning Front went back to back

ALLZIN: Boys from the bush just failed to land a good go at Randwick. Unlucky not to collect.

Invincible Gem

INVINCIBLE GEM: Punters got it right backing this classy filly to do the job against the boys.

GLOBAL GLAMOUR: The ratings said she had to win. Hammered at the short odds.

RUBY RED HEART: When a trainer declares for one publicly the punters listen....and bet accordingly!

BLACKBOOK

JAMEKA: Excellent start to her Australian Cup campaign.

OREGON’S DAY: Hard to miss her strong first-up placing.

HUMIDOR: There’s a good win coming for this horse.

PARIAH: Great sectionals. He’ll be in the thick of it in the Blue Diamond.

ENDLESS DRAMA: Pleasing first-up effort behind Winx.

SHILLELAGH: Forgive run. Knocked out of it by interference.
