The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING - with SHAYNE O’CASS

RACE 1

3. Ar­rossire is a Tracey Bart­ley trained first starter that is a half to stakes-win­ners Marchin­ski and Shep­ishir and the stakes-placed Theophorous who were all at one time trained by the for­mer jockey. This son of Magic Al­bert did enough in the sec­ond and most re­cent of his two tri­als to get the nod to­day. 2. Big Reg is also a debu­tant, he’s by I Am In­vin­ci­ble and looked the goods when win­ning his Wy­ong trial on May 1. For the record he went 0.74s faster win­ning his heat same day/same venue. 5. Is­la­max tri­alled that same morn­ing and was a 0.5-lens 2nd in slower time than both.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Ar­rossire win, quinella 2 and 3; r un­ning dou­ble

3 into 3

RACE 2

3. Fox­down is a brother to the for­mer Dubbo trained sprint­ing star Shi­raz. This one won a trial like a good horse and has been some­what luck­less in his only two runs. Poor horse can’t draw an al­ley - one hopes he isn’t wide (again) to­day but def­i­nitely has the tal­ent.

2. Great Job is an­other of the Tracey Bart­ley debu­tants headed out west to­day. Has tri­alle d quite ad­e­quately through­out his var­i­ous preps and is sure to run well. 5. Ken­nie Colleen has drawn favourably in gate 2 and was sound on de­but at Ar­mi­dale re­cently.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Fox­down win

RACE 3

8. Eva Jean was beaten 6.6-lens in a TAB High­way and 4.8-lens in a CDRA Cham­pi­onships Qual­i­fier at dif­fer­ent stages this cam­paign so she should be right at home in a C2 hand­i­cap with just 52.5kgs on her back. The Or­ange visi­tor was way be­low her best last start at Nar­romine - ex­pect a bet­ter out­come to­day. 2. Artis­tic

Beauty has run even bet­ter than Eva Jean in mul­ti­ple High­ways. The Cameron Crock­ett trained mare re­sumes here since Chirst mas Eve but has had the ben­e­fit of a re­cent sound trial this month. 1. Ghi­bili has won 2 of her past 3 and has race fit­ness in his favour.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Eva Jean each-way, box tri­fecta 1/2/4/8

RACE 4

7. Ab­stract Lady came from 13th of 14 at the turn to fin­ish 2.1lens third here in a 1300m maiden last time out so the wide draw should not be too much of an is­sue for her and her very ca­pa­ble jockey Travis Wolf­gram. Fourth-up to­day, she has been a maiden too long com­pared to her abil­ity. 2. Duke­box Ge­orge is a light­lyraced 3YO from the pro­lific Brett Thomp­son yard at Gul­gong and wasn’t beaten all that far here last time. Can fig­ure. 10. Mal­laco

Princess has been run­ning in stronger races at Ta­ree and Cess­nock and was fifth each time.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Ab­stract Lady each-way, box quinella 2/7/10

RACE 5

Wy­ong trainer Damian Lane is deadly ac­cu­rate at plac­ing his string and he doesn’t mind trav­el­ling far and wide to win a race. En­ter 3. Ey­ota who has the key book­ing of Greg Ryan and is ably served from bar­rier 1, given he had led at his last two runs when placed at Wy­ong and Gos­ford re­spec­tively. Easy to like. 5. Kings

bridge has been run­ner-up ei­ther side of a spell although with rea­son­able sized mar­gins both times. Drawn a lit­tle wide which is the neg­a­tive. 1. Ansa is bet­ter than those three runs this cam­paign sug­gest.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Ey­ota win

RACE 6

1. Baker’s Im­age is an­other one of the Cameron Crock­ett team rac­ing at Dubbo en­sur­ing the as­tute Mudgee trainer has a big day. This 3YO geld­ing is 3s 1-1-1 thus far and whilst he is first-up this af­ter­noon, he’s had the two tri­als to pre­pare him for a bold bid on his re­turn de­spite the awk­ward draw. Greg Ryan rides. 14. Sweet

Holly has a bet­ter bar­rier and race fit­ness on her side, how­ever she has only man­aged 1 win from 27 starts - placed 10 times though. Damien Lane’s 2. Bench Star is a ma­jor player but has drawn poorly.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Sweet Holly to place

RACE 7

That man Greg Ryan again. He’s hard to beat any­where, any­time but Sun­day’s are usu­ally all about him. Ryan will part­ner 6. The

Frick here and as it stands, he is the only jockey to win on the horse - that was at Wellington in a 1400m maiden back in Jan­uary. Placed here and at Mudgee since his short-ish spell. Go well. 5.

Spir­ited Char­ac­ter rarely runs a bad race and can eas­ily medal. Bet­ting strat­egy: The Frick to win, quinella 6/5, ex­acta 6 to beat 5

RACE 8

12. Hash­tag Noidea is by the iron horse Nic­coni and has won 5 and placed 9 times from his 34 starts. The horse was beaten nar­rowly at his only prior run at this track and dis­tance. Go close to­day - make no mis­take. 8. Yours Mine Ours bumped into a handy horse when beaten by Ban­skia here first-up. On-pacer drawn 2 for the vet­eran Paul King.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Hash­tag Noidea win

RACE 9

11. Fly Lightly is a half to Group 1 win­ner Fen­way, a full to stakeswin­ner War and almost a three- quar­ter to More Joy­ous. Owned and bred by John Sin­gle­ton this filly was with Gai Water­house up un­til join­ing the Rod Northam camp at Scone. Romped in at Bin­n­away af­ter be­ing a neck sec­ond at Mudgee first-up. Good race this though. 5. Redi­rect was’’ spelled’’ af­ter a com­pre­hen­sive and im­pres­sive de­but win at Wellington on Mar 11. Dud draw how­ever. 9. Sonic Girl is ca­pa­ble of fig­ur­ing, so too 1. Az­can­nyaz.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Fly Lightly win, box tri­fecta 1/5/8/9/11
