Sexy Eyes has that look of vic­tory

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - Racing -


DYSLEXIC (race 7) has been a big firmer since mar­kets were first framed on Wed­nes­day. She looked overs when ini­tially rated at $6.50 but she has been heav­ily backed since and is now into $2.50 favouritism. Her come­back run on a wet track in The Nivi­son was full of merit and she is ready to win back on a good sur­face to­day.


EX­HIL­A­RATES (race 1) was a rare Godol­phin pur­chase at the Magic Mil­lions Year­ling Sale on the Gold Coast in Jan­uary sell­ing for $600,000. Bred by Greg Perry who also bred At­lantic Jewel, Ex­hil­a­rates is a blue­blood of epic pro­por­tions be­ing by two-time cham­pion sire Snitzel out of the Blue Di­a­mond win­ner Sa­maready. Looked the part when a close sec­ond in her one and only trial at the Rand­wick heats on Oc­to­ber 30. MONTRACHET (race nine) is a lightly-raced mare by Fast­net Rock trained by Team Hawkes. She is a four-year-old now but has only had the three starts all of them very good. She won her maiden at Rosehill on April 2 this year then 26 days later went to Hawkes­bury to the stand-alone and ran a highly cred­itable fourth to Sam­bro. Tommy Berry rode Montrachet in her trial at Rosehill eight days ago when she hit the line well un­der her own steam in fourth spot, two lengths from the win­ner. Looks to have come back in great or­der and bound to in the fir­ing line..


SEXY EYES (race 4) is a Chris Waller trained mare who wears the same colours as cham­pion mare Winx. Sexy Eyes was run­nerup at her first two runs this prepa­ra­tion be­fore her em­phatic three-and-a-quar­ter lengths win in a 1400m Bem­ch­mark 88 race at Royal Rand­wick the same day as Winx won her fourth Cox Plate. Sexy Eyes should be even bet­ter suited at 1500m and is of course rac­ing at home to­day. The mare worked on the in­side grass on Tues­day over 1000m in 1:9.20s, last 400m in 24.30s. GOLDFINCH (race nine) is a very fast mare who was taken on in front at Rand­wick last start but did an ad­mirable job to hold on for fifth spot, just over three lengths from the win­ner, Sin­gle Bul­let, who swept home off the quick tempo. Goldfinch will surely lead on the fence again to­day given that she has drawn bar­rier 2. Deanne Panya knows this mare well. Goldfinch gal­loped on the A Grass at War­wick Farm on Tues­day over 1000m in 1:11.32s with a quick 22.24s last 400m, 11.1s last 200m.

Deanne Panya will ride Goldfinch at Rosehill to­day.
