Australian Racing: Keep Calm for a wet track

There’s four meetings set to take place on Tuesday including provincial fixtures at Kembla Grange and Warwick.

Race 1 Kembla Grange

Calm Down @ 4/1

Race 4 Warwick 

My Whistleblower @ 17/2

Race 3 Stony Creek

Rich Glow @ 16/5

Down to score at Kembla Grange

The opener at Kembla Grange is a 2000m Class 1 contest. A heavy 8 track is forecast for the race with Western Front expected to prove popular with punters.

Annabel Neasham’s import showed good form in France including when breaking his maiden over the trip on synthetics last February. Tackled an inadequate 1600m when making his debut for Neasham in a Class 1 event at Gosford earlier this month.

The wet track forecast here, a heavy 8 shouldn’t be an issue having shown ability on soft going on debut in France but proven wet track performer Calm Down is preferred here. Ron Quinton’s filly finished in front of Western Front when the pair met in the previously mentioned Gosford contest.

Burraneer Buoy to outshine Lady

Big Red Hawk steps up in distance

Beaten less than a length into third that day the selection met trouble in running under his jockey here Andrew Adkins. Had previously triumphed over 1800m in a Class 1 at Hawkesbury last month while the daughter of Savabeel has placed on all three previous starts on heavy going.

The four-year-old shapes as if this trip will suit and is selected to register a second career success.

Whistleblower to upset Termite

Termite showed ability in two starts in his first spell and is expected to jump as favourite for the fourth at Warwick. The race in question is a 1200m maiden plate with a heavy 8 track forecast.

Matthew Park’s charge has been off the track since suffering a narrow defeat when runner-up over 1400m at Gatton in early May. The heavy going here should prove no issue having debuted with a third on a heavy 8 at Gold Coast prior to that Gatton effort.

A draw in 11 may prove more troublesome over this 1200m trip however and with that in mind he looks opposable. My Whistleblower has delivered some solid efforts in maiden races over further including when five-and-a-half-lengths fourth over 1400m at Dalby in September.

Tackled a soft 7 surface that day and had previously placed third on a good 4 track over 1625m at Toowoomba the previous month. Most notably however the son of Spill The Beans has changed trainer since the previously mentioned Dalby fourth and it’s interesting that he is dropped in trip first up here.

Making his debut for Lindsay Hatch here the four-year-old is well drawn five off the rail here and looks up to providing claimer Emily Lang with a winner.

Glow to break maiden

The third race at Stony Creek looks an interesting 1100m maiden plate. A good 4 surface is forecast with nine three-year-old’s set to go to post following the scratchings of Always A Saint and She Will Rock You.

Snow Falcon disappointed on both starts last year finishing ninth on each occasion having delivered a victory in his only barrier trial prior. The daughter of Lonhro’s latest effort came when beaten nearly ten lengths over this distance at Sale in September.

Encountered a good 4 track there and while she prepped for this spell with a second barrier trial win Rich Glow looks a more solid option for the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace team. The three-year-old shaped as if he’d improve for the experience when debuting with a third place finish over this trip on a good 4 surface at Stawell earlier this month.

While that form hasn’t been properly tested in the interim period the fourth home Desert Fun showed up well when runner-up at Warrnambool subsequently. The selection also holds a metro engagement at Moonee Valley this weekend and with Michael Poy up he is taken to get off the mark at the second attempt.
