Australian Racing: Sacred Oath can back up Albury promise

There’s three meetings set to take place on Monday including on the synthetic track at Ballarat where an eight race card is scheduled.

Race 7 Ballarat Synthetic 

Lady Ardoyne @ 3.50

Race 7 Taree 

Are We Good @ 5.00

Race 5 Albury 

Sacred Oath @ 2.30

Lady for Ballarat success 

Sareem D’Oro has placed on each of her last three starts and is expected to have her supporters ahead of the penultimate start on the Ballarat card. 

The filly broke her maiden when debuting on the synthetic track here in June last year but has been kept to turf since including when beaten less than five-and-a-half-lengths into third in a 1400m Benchmark 58. 

Tom Dabernig’s filly has drawn the inside barrier but may have to give best to LADY ARDOYNE who takes the eye here following two second place finishes. 

The most recent of those came when beaten by a narrow margin over 1450m in a Benchmark 58 handicap at Kyneton a month ago. 

Trained by Thomas Conlon, the filly raced from the front on that occasion and she is taken to deliver a victory with the slightly shorter distance here no issue.

Good to triumph at Taree 

The concluding race at Taree looks to be a competitive 1262m handicap with a field of 11 set to go to post on a soft 6 track. 

Poet’s Performer is expected to have her supporters following a narrow victory when returning in a Benchmark 58 event at Coffs Harbour earlier this month. 

Ridden by her jockey here Zac Waddick that day the mare made all the running on a soft 7 surface. 

The daughter of Poet’s Voice was making her first start since December on that occasion and while she is obviously a player in this field preference is for ARE WE GOOD who is also racing second up. 

The selection showed a liking for this venue last spell placing on all four starts here including when runner-up in a Class 2 handicap on a good 4 track here in December. 

The six-year-old gelding was beaten less than three lengths into second having raced the pace on that occasion. 

The son of Bel Esprit is a fairly versatile type with regards tactics having gone well from off the pace as well as when being ridden prominently. 

The soft ground here is no issue and Grant Buckley’s mount is taken to double his career tally.

Oath to complete Albury double 

SACRED OATH takes the eye in the fifth race at Albury. The Class 2 handicap is the longest race on the card at 1500m and the pick showed that he handles the track here when delivering a one-and-a-half-length victory over 1400m here last month. 

That effort marked the geldings first race appearance since finishing seventh over 1200m at Doomben back in November last year. 

Trained by Mitchell Beer, Sacred Oath has shown a liking for wet tracks in the past including when breaking his maiden on a heavy 8 surface at Gold Coast in April last year. 

Danny Beasley, on board last time out and when the pick delivered a victory in a 1000m barrier trial at Wagga Riverside last month is again in the saddle here. 

With the extra distance expected to suit the Sacred Falls gelding and with a good barrier in two he looks capable of completing a double in this ten runner event.
