Early Mail and Blackbook Update For January 13

Early mail and blackbook runners at Randwick, Gold Coast and Flemington on January 13.


RACE 4 (5) REACH FOR HEAVEN: Went for a break in winning form in August and is primed to resume in similar vein after a long prep that has included three trials since November. Looked sharp bursting away late for an impressive win in fast time in his latest trial over 800m on his home track at Newcastle when ridden by race jockey Aaron Bullock. Like his profile for this event as he is a proven first-up winner over 1200m and has finished in the money in both his previous Randwick starts.

RACE 6 (3) MORTON’S FORK: Won the 2016 Sandown Guineas winner over this trip and ready to find that form after two excellent efforts over 1400m since resuming. Unlucky not to win last time when beaten a head by Nancy at Warwick Farm, finishing fast after being hampered on the turn, and should relish the extra 200m on this bigger track where he has never missed a place in three starts. This race sets up well for him as there should be plenty of early pressure from some obvious leaders.

RACE 7 (5) EUSEBIO: Hard to miss the excellent first-up sixth of this lightly raced 4YO over 1200m at Warwick Farm after a long break of nine months when he worked to the line strongly under little pressure, an effort that raised a stewards inquiry into his performance. He won second-up in his last campaign on his way to beating a good field in the Canberra Guineas over 1400m and the return to that trip on this big track looks ideal.
