Australian Racing: Hasseltoff to upstage Chatelaine

There’s five meetings set to take place on Wednesday including a nine race card at Eagle Farm.

Race 6 Sandown Hillside

Hasseltoff @ 3.20

Race 5 Eagle Farm

Born A Warrior @ 2.30

Race 8 Warwick Farm

Seven Sisters @ 5.50

Hasseltoff for Hillside success

The sixth race on the Sandown Hillside card is an interesting Benchmark 78 contest over 1800m. Chatelaine is expected to have her supporters having won twice from five starts when racing second up.

Patrick Payne’s mare won three times on wet tracks last spell including by over five lengths in a Benchmark 70 event over 2100m on the Lakeside course here in August. The daughter of Tavistock resumed this time around with a solid sixth on a good 3 track when racing at this Benchmark 78 level over 1400m at Pakenham last month.

A step forward is expected second up however Hasseltoff is preferred in this contest. Trained by Tom Dabernig the pick has won twice already this prep with both of those triumphs coming in Benchmark 70 contests at Flemington.

The second of those came over 1700m on a good 4 track at the start of January and the gelding has delivered respectable efforts on all three subsequent starts.

The selection raced from off the pace when seventh behind Threeandfourpence at this track early last month but is taken to reverse that form here. Blake Shinn’s mount tackles an easier event here following a respectable fifth over 2000m in a Benchmark 84 contest at Flemington on February 18.

Warrior for Eagle Farm hat-trick

The fifth race on the Eagle Farm card is an interesting 1200m Benchmark 70 contest. A wet track is expected with a soft 7 forecast with the defection of Checkers leaving a field of ten to go to post. Born A Warrior delivered a number of good efforts without scoring last spell placing second on no fewer than five of his six starts.

The switch to this venue has suited the pick this time around however with the gelding winning twice over this course and distance. The second of those triumphs came in a Benchmark 68 event on a good 4 track when racing from off the pace here February 22.

The wet track here should prove no issue having placed in seven of his 12 starts on going described as soft. James Orman, on board for both starts this spell keeps the ride and the pair are taken to complete a hat-trick.

Sisters to score for Cummings

The concluding race on the Warwick Farm card is a 1200m Benchmark 78 event. There are three scratchings in the field leaving a field of 11 with Invincible Vision expected to jump as favourite for the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott team.

The six-year-old receives weight from all bar one of his rivals and has won half of his four career starts to date. The gelding returned from well over a year off the track with a narrow margin victory in a Benchmark 72 contest over track and trip on a soft 7 surface here last month.

Seven Sisters is expected to prove too strong for the James Cummings team however. The three-year-old filly won by a narrow margin in a Benchmark 64 event over 1100m at Wyong last month. The daughter of Street Boss followed that effort up with a second in a Benchmark 72 event over 1100m at Canberra.

The soft ground expected here is no issue while she performed well in Group 2 company as a two-year-old. With improvement likely and a fair barrier in eight she looks up to scoring under Chad Schofield.
