Australian Racing: Damreel fishing for Kilcoy glory

There’s nine meetings for punters to get stuck into on Sunday including a 10 race card at Pinjarra.

Race 8 Pinjarra 

No Peer @ 4.20

Race 5 Muswellbrook 

Behind The Storm @ 7.50

Race 8 Kilcoy 

Damreel @ 5.00

Peer for Pinjarra success 

There are a number of short-priced favourites on the Pinjarra card and Amjaad is expected to have her supporters ahead of the eight race of the day, a 1400m Class 3 handicap.

A soft 5 track is expected with the Indianna Weinert-trained filly having returned to action with a good two length fourth over 1400m at Belmont Park last month. 

While that effort came on a good 4 track the soft conditions forecast here hold no issues however the Lucy Fiore-ridden NO PEER is preferred on this occasion. 

The three-year-old made a promising return from a spell when beaten just over one-and-a-half-lengths into sixth in a 1300m handicap at Northam on 10th May. 

The daughter of Nicconi took a step forward when delivering a close-up third-place finish in a 1300m Class 1 handicap at Belmont Park two weeks later. 

The pick is making her first start at this venue and with the extra 100m here looking likely to suit she is taken to double her career tally.

Storm to score 

Top weight Titration is expected to jump as favourite for the fifth race on the Muswellbrook card. 

The race in question is a 1450m Class 2 handicap set to take place on a good 4 surface. 

Trained by Cameron Crockett the gelding has placed on three of his four starts in 2023 including when beaten less than a length over 1280m at this venue last month. 

The five-year-old had previously placed at metro level when third in an 1100m Class 2 handicap at Hawkesbury and the top weight has Ashley Morgan up for the first time since December. 

BEHIND THE STORM missed the break when finishing strongly from off the pace in a 1280m Class 1 event at this circuit on her penultimate start. 

Trained by Jeremy Gask the filly again missed the break when contesting a 13 runner Class 1 handicap on a soft 5 track at Dubbo just under a month ago. 

Ridden from the back at Dubbo the pick passed all bar one of her rivals in finishing strongly to place second when beaten a neck on a soft 5 surface. 

Jenny Duggan, on board for the filly's maiden success at Scone back in December takes the ride here and while often slowly away she looks capable of delivering a victory from off the pace.

Damreel for Kilcoy success 

DAMREEL takes the eye in the concluding race on Kilcoy’s eight race card. A good 4 track is expected for the 1900m Restricted 58 handicap with the pick boasting a good record here having won on two of his three starts at this venue. 

All three of those outings have come over this course and distance most recently when winning in a Benchmark 55 event on a soft 5 track a month ago. 

The selection failed to shine when last of 11 at Gold Coast Poly over the same trip subsequently but he can be forgiven for that below-par effort. 

The return to this venue is a positive while barrier nine shouldn’t prove too much of an issue for apprentice Jai Williams who was on board for the previously mentioned track success. 

Trainer Gregory Cornish is on the cold list currently but Damreel can provide him with his first winner in over a month in this competitive-looking event.
