Gloucester Park - Race 2 7:56pm

No. 3 Rascal

In one of the more open affairs of the evening, this runner comes into this event first-up and looks set for a forward showing.

A horse with a lot of natural ability, this Kat Warwick gelding had excuses in the vast majority of his defeated runs last preparation, often racing well with limited luck. Importantly, these runs were more often than not against vastly stronger opposition to what he meets here. The son of Captaintreacherous is also the beneficiary of two solid trials in the lead up to this race.

Although drawn three, this gelding is unlikely to get across Classic Choice at the start; but with the master Chris Lewis in the sulky we are guaranteed for this runner to be afforded every opportunity.

No. 3 The Miki Taker

One of three runners hailing from the Aiden De Campo yard, this gelded son of Always Be Miki steps back in grade to a winnable race.

A thirteen time race winner, this gelding was narrowly defeated in the fast class race seven days ago behind Hampton Banner, sitting parked throughout in solid sectionals. Two starts prior, this gelding was victorious in the Manea Classic at Bunbury, beating subsequent winners in the process.

Given his good early speed and the fact the strongest gate speed influences drawn wider and stablemates to this runner, it is fair enough to assume this gelding will lead this event and from there he should be winning. He is our best bet of the evening.

Gloucester Park - Race 5 9:26pm

No. 1 Miss Hepburn

This evenings feature event sees the best of Western Australia’s three-year-old fillies line up, with the Aiden De Campo trained and driven filly potentially representing great value.

At her last start, this filly drew wide and punched the fence late; eventually going over the line hard held behind tonights rival Sugar Delight. This came off the back of a strong victory where she led throughout from barrier one over the mile here at GP.

A star in her own right, this filly has at times been overshadowed by the brilliance of Water Lou who is the most logical danger here again this evening, but given the awkward draw that Water Lou faces; Aiden De Campo will hold all the aces in this race.

Gloucester Park - Race 10 11:45pm

No. 1 Storm The Beach

The ‘get out stakes’ for the evening sees us land on Storm The Beach as our saving grace.

A horse with plenty of potential, this Katie Howlett gelding has developed an appealing record thus far into his career, winning four of his nine starts. This included his last outing here at GP seven days ago, where the son of Sunshine Beach led throughout to score comfortably by 11.3m.

Given the barrier draw here and Chris Voak sticking with this gelding, there is only one place this runner will be in the run and that is in front. Although this is a slight step up in grade, the four-year-old has substantially more upside than any of his rivals and goes on top here.
