Australian Racing: Bullhouse can charge to victory

There are eight meetings set to take place on Sunday including at Coleraine who host the 3600m Great Western Steeplechase on their card.

Race 5 Coleraine

Roland Garros @ 4.20

Race 1 Moe

Bullhouse @ 7.50

Race 6 Sunshine Coast

Finsceal @ 11.00

Garros for Great Western glory

The 3600m Great Western Steeplechase is a handicap steeplechase set to take place as the fifth race on the Coleraine card. 

Jockey Tom Ryan has been in good form of late with the rider boasting a 31% strike-rate (4/13) in the last 30 days.

He partners top-weight Mighty Oasis in this contest with the gelding having won over 3450m in the Thackeray Steeplechase held on a heavy 10 track at Warrnambool at the start of July.

The eight-year-old followed that up with a good third in the 3800m Two Rivers Steeplechase at Casterton and he rates highly for trainer Andrew Bobbin.

Runner-up in the Two Rivers Steeplechase was ROLAND GARROS who re-opposes here with regular pilot William McCarthy booked to ride.

The nine-year-old had previously delivered a one-and-a-half-length triumph in a 3450m handicap chase at Warrnambool earlier that month and is the selection on this occasion. 

The gelding was ridden from third as opposed to racing from the front as had been the case prior and he looks the most likely winner of this race. 

The pick showed a good level of form on the flat including when winning in metro company at Moonee Valley back in 2020.

The gelding's previous victories include a one-length victory in this race 12 months ago and he looks up to making all the running to deliver his 10th career win. 

Bullhouse to break maiden 

The opening race at Moe is an interesting 1200m maiden plate contest set to take place on a soft 6 surface.

Newcomer Power Beau, a gelding by Brazen Beau, is expected to prove popular making his first start for the Trent Busuttin & Natalie Young team.

The gelding has gained plenty of jump out experience including when finishing runner-up twice since returning from a break, with the most recent of those coming over 1000m at Cranbourne on 31st July.

The three-year-old has a good alley here, however, BULLHOUSE is preferred on this occasion.

Trained by Nikki Burke the gelding debuted with a fifth in a 1200m contest on a soft 7 surface at Mornington in June.

The selection raced from off the pace on that occasion and is expected to have improved for that effort. 

The pick will jump from next to the rail here and the son of Bullpoint is taken to deliver his first victory at the second time of asking. 

Finsceal for Sunshine Coast success 

The sixth race at Sunshine Coast plays host to our third and final bet of the day.

The race in question is a 1200m Class 3 handicap with a field of 14 set to line up for the $28,000 contest. 

The horse in question here is FINSCEAL who has delivered some good efforts including when winning a Restricted 62 handicap over 1400m at Sunshine Coast in January. 

The five-year-old was racing second up on that occasion having found racing at metro level too much. 

He was beaten over eight lengths into fourth over 1200m at Eagle Farm on his return that spell.

The pick has delivered some good efforts in defeat since that Sunshine Coast success, including when placed at both Eagle Farm and Doomben.

While those efforts came over further, a fourth-place finish in a 1000m barrier trial should have helped him fitness wise and Chris Munce’s gelding is taken to deliver a victory here.
