Australian Racing: Good Vintage to come of age

There’s four meetings due to take place on Tuesday with action from Ballina, Beaumont, Mornington and Kilcoy.

Race 2 Mornington
Good Vintage @ 3.00

Race 6 Newcastle
Barcoo River @ 9.00

Race 7 Kilcoy
Dratini @ 5.50

Vintage to break maiden

Doughboy Hollow is expected to have his supporters ahead of the second race on the Mornington card. The race concerned is a 2435m maiden contest set to take place on a good 4 track.

Trained by Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott, the gelding delivered a third-place finish when beaten six lengths in a 2100m maiden at Stony Creek on his penultimate start.

He possibly found the nine-day turnaround too much when a below par fifth of seven upped to 2232m at Sale subsequently.

A confirmed front-runner, Jordan Childs' mount steps up in trip here and preference is for GOOD VINTAGE.

Chris Wallers' trainee showed solid form when coming from off the pace to finish two-lengths second in an 1850m maiden at Newcastle at the end of January.

The pick had a subsequent dual winner directly behind him on that occasion and again performed well upped to 2000m at Hawkesbury subsequently.

Beaten three lengths into fifth in that Hawkesbury contest, he gets a drop to country level here and with the extra distance looking likely to suit he can provide jockey Jye McNeil with a winner.

Barcoo for Beaumont success

The penultimate race on the Beaumont card is a 1300m Benchmark 58 contest. A good 4 track is forecast for the 16-runner contest with BARCOO RIVER the pick to deliver a second career success.

The three-year-old appeared to appreciate the switch to a sound surface when delivering a victory by a narrow margin over 1200m at Tamworth last month.

The selection encountered the forecast good 4 going here for the first time when racing behind the speed that day. Notably the form of that race is working out well enough with the second and third home both delivering victories subsequently.

The return to soft ground and being ridden on the speed appeared not to suit when fading into seventh upped to 1408m in a Class 1 contest at Taree earlier this month.

Trainer Kris Lees does well at this venue with a 29% strike-rate (6/21) in the last 12 months and his representative is taken to score back down in trip and returning to a good 4 surface.

Dratini to resume with victory

A soft 5 track is expected at Kilcoy with the concluding contest a competitive looking Benchmark 65 contest over 1200m.

Anarchy has been in good form for handler Lindsay Hatch this spell and is expected to jump as favourite from barrier five. The five-year-old has won once and placed twice from his four starts this time around.

The son of Scissor Kick came home three-lengths fourth in a 1400m Benchmark 62 event at Dalby earlier this month. The switch to soft ground should prove no issue but DRATINI is preferred here coming into this fresh from a break.

Trained by Louise Dillon, the seven-year-old has shown a liking for this venue in the past, winning two of his four previous starts here.

Those efforts included wins in two of his final three starts last spell, most recently on a good 3 track over this trip when racing at Benchmark 60 level in November.

Usually races from the front and with the soft going forecast here in his favour, he is taken to get across from barrier 10 to provide jockey Kelly Gates with a victory.
