COOTAMUNDRA — Shayne O’Cass

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACE DAY PREVIEW -

RACE 1

One More Tip­ple has placed at 3 of 6 starts. Blink­ers off first time to­day and makes the most ap­peal. Clever Fox is a mem­ber of the Matthew Dale camp. The mare tri­alled well at Goul­burn on Sep 14. Her 3rd dam is Shadea, Lonhro’s mother. Man­dora has drawn wide for this but was solid on de­but.

Bet strat­egy: One More Tip­ple win, quinella 2,6

RACE 2

Fast Talk­ing has only placed once in 9 starts but that might be enough to see him home here. Was only beaten 4 len in a much deeper maiden at Goul­burn on Sept 14. Truth Be Writ­ten is a lightly raced geld­ing who has shown on-pace ten­den­cies in two rea­son­able starts. Av­er­age Out has Kayla Nis­bet on board.

Bet strat­egy: Fast Talk­ing win, quinella 1,5

RACE 3

Man­hat­tan Zip was build­ing up to a win and when it came, last start, it was a rip­per. Granted he didn’t win by much but he was steam­ing home down the out­side and was very strong at the end of 1400m. Will eat up the mile to­day. Orithyia is on trial at the 1600m also but she is a Dy­lan Thomas so should be sweet. Drawn to win if good enough. Star Of Ser­ena is a player. Bet strat­egy: Man­hat­tan Zip win, quinella 3,6, ex­acta 3/6

RACE 4

Not Too Sure was 2.6 len sec­ond to Dy­lan’s Deeva at Corowa on Sep 17 over this same trip. Dy­lan’s Deeva meets the other horse worse at the weights to­day and, on top of that, Not Too Sure is 1 for 1 at Cootamundra so with the pre­vi­ous track ex­pe­ri­ence and the weight is­sue, Not Too Sure gets the nod — just. Hard to imag­ine any­thing beat­ing one of the top pair but if so it could only re­ally be Han­gin’ With Willy. Bet strat­egy: Not Too Sure win, quinella 1,2, ex­acta 1/2, box tri­fecta 1,2,5

RACE 5

La Biere Choisie has her first start un­der as­tute horse­man Gary Kirkup here hav­ing pre­vi­ously been housed at New­cas­tle with Kris Lees. This daugh­ter of Choisir has been costly on more than one oc­ca­sion but she does look to have the su­pe­rior form against bet­ter horses and in stronger races. Kor­mad­die and Ex­ag­ger­ate are best of the oth­ers. Bugeisha a ‘watch’.

Bet strat­egy: La Biere Choisie win

RACE 6

Ski­ing Girl has been good from day one but went down in her first two starts as a short-priced favourite. Those who stuck solid were re­warded when she bolted in first-up at Gunda­gai when $3.50 to $2.70. She can go right on with it. Event was go­ing great guns be­fore her Corowa fail­ure. Bound­ing Bad­ger has raced at Kem­bla at his past 5 runs.

Bet strat­egy: Ski­ing Girl win

RACE 7

Lord Den­man is a Nick Olive-trained geld­ing who likes to race handy where pos­si­ble and is in­vari­ably never far away ev­i­denced by his record of three wins and eight plac­ings from 18 starts. He was rac­ing so well be­fore his 5.8-len 9th of 10 in a leader-dom­i­nated TAB High­way at Rand­wick on Sep 15. Find this more to his lik­ing. Mr Tin­dall had his first start for Gary Kirkup when win­ning at Can­berra on Aug 24. Has been un­seen since.

Bet strat­egy: Lord Den­man win, box tri­fecta 1,3,8,9,

RACE 8

Mar­quee showed he was get­ting close to his old and best form that saw him win in town and also win a Na­rooma Cup with that last-start plac­ing in the Dubbo Cup. Gets in well at the weights here. Hard to hold out late. Danetrille was ex­tremely im­pres­sive in the Grif­fith Cup. He will be fly­ing home late. Ditto the ‘long­shot’ in the cup to­day namely Zarlu. Bet strat­egy: Mar­quee win, quinella 4,11, ex­acta 4/11, box tri­fecta 4,8,11,12
