The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACEDAY PREVIEW - with Matt Jones

RACE 1

7. Say Madam peaks for this and, if her past two starts are any­thing to go by, she should be in the fin­ish with any im­prove­ment from a per­fect gate. Cameron Crock­ett has taken his time with 11. Fame And For­tune who tri­alled re­ally nicely for this. The wide gate, for a first starter, is a con­cern but she looks the goods. 12. Foreverly could only man­age fourth and 11th at her two runs last prepa­ra­tion but she won her lead-up trial for this and Greg Ryan sticks which is a good sign.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Fame And For­tune win

RACE 2

8. Supreme God­dess is down in grade and a re­peat of her lat­est per­for­mance would make her the one to beat. Drop­ping back to a mile shouldn’t be an is­sue and she’ll get a cushy run. 5. Outta Space has won past two but this will tougher than his last race. Greg Ryan rides. 4. Mosay­tion will run bet­ter here than last start and look for him to be com­ing home late. Best of the rest are 1. Some­thing Bor­rowed and 3. Dap­per­ized.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Supreme God­dess win

RACE 3

2. Fox­down pro­duced an eye-catcher over 1400m last start and now gets up to the trip where he won his only race and does his best. He should have won more so you can still have con­fi­dence in him. 14. Sass‘N’Twin­kle was en­ti­tled to fin­ish bet­ter than third last start due to the easy run but was fin­ish­ing hard late and don’t dis­miss her yet. 4. Zaze just couldn’t peg back a runaway leader last start but it’s start­ing to be­come a fa­mil­iar habit. 10 The De­bater is knock­ing on the door.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Fox­down win

RACE 4

4. Bossy Beryl hasn’t raced since be­ing sent out $1.80 favourite on de­but at Cowra in Jan­uary, but Cameron Crock­ett said the 40C day re­ally af­fected her and she was frac­tious in the bar­ri­ers. He said to put a line through that run. 1. Road To Nowhere will find this race eas­ier. 9. Fly­ing Comet drops well back in grade too and peaks third-up so there’s no ex­cuses this time.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Bossy Beryl win

RACE 5

11. Ris­ing King shapes up well for this race de­spite draw­ing wide. When he draws out wide he tends to sit off the speed and he’s ca­pa­ble of com­ing off it to let down and threaten. 13. Sa­van­nah Girl won well last time in a lesser race but has proved her­self in this grade and races well at home. 5. Sticket won on de­but but in a much weaker race. 4. Kash­tan is up to a more suit­able dis­tance and can threaten.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Ris­ing King win

RACE 6

3. Joey’s Destiny was well backed to win the Dubbo Coun­try Cham­pi­onships Qual­i­fier but fell short. This is a bit eas­ier and he gets a 3kg weight drop and 1300m is a bet­ter trip than 1400m. 4. Bar­ri­cade hasn’t raced in an event this easy for a while and is set to take ad­van­tage of the con­di­tions. Greg Ryan got off Joey’s Destiny for this ride. 7. Jar Of Hearts pro­duces her best when fresh so watch out for a big run. Best of the rest is 5. At­talea.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Bar­ri­cade win

RACE 7

The only worry with 2. Kenny Suc­ceed is the 1100m. If he gets an easy run, which he should, he’ll be there late. 9. Inkulu pro­duced a crack­ing run after a break at Dubbo and should be charg­ing to the line. 1. Rasta­far­ian will be up on the speed and if he gets to the front easy he’ll be hard to catch. 7. Trades Hall will fol­low him but might try to find cover. She’s back in form.

Bet­ting strat­egy: Kenny Suc­ceed win
