WEEKEND POST MORTEM – February 4/5

Chris Scholtz reviews racing around Australia on February 4 and 5.

THE STARS

SCOTT BRUNTON: Winning five races on one day is always special, but to do it on Hobart Cup day including two of the features - that's gold!


DARREN GAUCI: One of the best celebrated his last day in the saddle with a popular win at Caulfield.

NORTHWEST PASSAGE: Dominant win in the Tasmanian Derby for Adam Hyeronimus and the Waterhouse/Bott team.

"The Gauch" on his last day Picture:Racing and Sports

BEN SMITH/ANDREW ATKINS: Stole the show at Randwick with their biggest win in the G2 Breeders Classic with In Her Time.

CRAIG WILLIAMS: When he’s hot….back on song with a treble at Caulfield.

ROBERT HICKMOTT: Just keeps producing winners for Lloyd Williams.

SIN BIN

DEAN YENDALL: His ride on Yulong Yongxing at Morphettville was panned universally as a slaughter.

HURLEY: Doubt punters will be rushing into him as favourite any time soon.

BEZEL: Very plain first-up. Raises doubts.

FAATINAH: Reported to be scratchy in his action. So were punters over the ride from Regan Bayliss.

RIDES OF THE DAY

BEN MELHAM: Worked overtime to lift Chance To Dance to a narrow win at Caulfield.

BRENTON AVDULLA: Randwick double and another win at Elwick on Sunday great examples of his strength.

TALKING POINTS

ELWICK TRACK: Everybody in Tasmanian racing knows the course needs a rebuild.

CAULFIELD: Shouldn’t escape criticism for obvious rails/on pace bias.

MONEY TALKS

DAL CIELO: Labelled the good thing of the day at Randwick. Punters bet accordingly.

DIVINE SERVICE: Brisbane smarties shopped early and the money kept coming.

OLIVIER: Punters love it when the big money comes for a Darren Weir runner in Adelaide.

BLACKBOOK

CIRCULAR: Good mare resumed with an eye catcher.

DENMAGIC: Strong start to her autumn program. Has class.

TOWER OF SONG: Working up to a win in the right class.

SPOILS: Handy effort in what may be a good form race.

NIGHT VOYAGE: Watch for him to bob up midweek.

ZASORCERESS: Poorly judged ride on a biased track.
