Australian Racing: Resistible chasing Newcastle glory

There are just two meetings due to take place on Tuesday with action from Newcastle and Kilmore.

Race 6 Newcastle 

Koning @ 4.00  

Race 7 Newcastle 

Resistible @ SP  

Race 7 Kilmore 

Ludovisi @ 2.30 

Koning to break maiden 

The sixth race on the Newcastle card is an interesting 1850m Class 1 set weights plate contest.

A good 4 track is expected for the race, with the three-year-old Port Lockroy expected to have his supporters, having shown good form in four starts to date.

Trained by Annabel Neasham, the colt delivered a one-and-a-half-length victory in a 1600m maiden on a good 4 track at Scone early last month.

The son of Better Than Ready jumped at short odds that day after two solid third-place finishes and followed that up with a good fifth in a Listed event over 1600m at Randwick on 30th September.

A drop in grade is a positive here, however, a wide barrier is far from ideal and the maiden KONING is preferred for the Richard & Will Freedman team. 

The colt has placed on all three previous starts with all three of those outings coming at Kembla Grange.

Held up in his first two outings, the Kingman colt tried to make all when beaten less than a length into second in a 1600m maiden on a good 4 track last time out. 

Connections apply a tongue tie to their representative for the first time here with the colt bred to appreciate the extra distance he gets here. 

Jason Collett takes the ride for the first time and with a good barrier he looks capable of steering Koning to victory. 

Resistible for Newcastle glory

The Richard & Will Freedman team look to hold strong claims with Cholante in the following race at Newcastle.

The 1200m Benchmark 68 handicap sees their four-year-old filly make her return from a spell, having delivered a third over 1100m at Randwick Kensington in March.

Tyler Schiller takes the ride here with the filly dropping in grade, having raced at Benchmark 72 level on that occasion.

However, she is expected to find RESISTIBLE hard to beat, with the pick having shown good form at metro level over further earlier this year.

Those efforts include a one-and-a-half-length third in a 1600m Benchmark 72 handicap on a soft 5 track at Randwick when last in action back in June.

Trainer Michael Freedman’s representative had run well over 1300m on wet tracks earlier that spell, including when a close second in a Benchmark 64 handicap at Kembla Grange in March.

The daughter of Snitzel boasts a good first up record, having won once and placed second once from two first up outings, and she is taken to deliver a victory under Keagan Latham. 

Ludovisi for Kilmore success

LUDOVISI has shown good form so far this spell finishing in the first four in all three starts and he looks capable of taking the penultimate race on Kilmore’s eight-race card.

The race in question is a 2000m Restricted 64 handicap set to take place on a good 4 surface.

Ludovisi finished strongly when beaten just over a length into fourth in a 1726m Restricted 64 handicap at Geelong on his penultimate outing.

The four-year-old shaped as if the extra distance would suit on that occasion, while he was ridden closer to the speed when fourth of six in a small field 1606m event at Benalla subsequently.

The small field was probably against him on that occasion and the bigger field he tackles here is expected to suit.

A return to hold up tactics is expected for Leon & Troy Corstens’ gelding here and Billy Egan can steer Ludovisi to his second career win.
