Tom Gilmore has four selections on Thursday, including a two-point 'good thing' at Townsville.
Warwick Farm R3 No.6 - TSARITSA (NAP)
It's fair to say she should have won both her starts to date, another disaster a week ago at Canterbury when she was just never within striking distance but still managed to work home nicely (yes to the 1400m and away from Canterbury!). Drawn for more of a suck trail into the race here from gate 2 and fancy the stable wouldnt run her if she couldnt handle the sting out of the track. Convinced she'll make a nice horse in time and will win today.
Tsaritsa (nap) - 1pt @ 2.05
Kyneton R5 No.3 - BIAN HARD
He's had two runs since returning from a spell and the most recent of which was quite good over the 1400m at Warrnambool (his run fresh at MV was excellent in high rating race!), he chased hard off what was only an even tempo which didnt suit but did manage to find the line well. Like he draws in today, fancy that they might be a touch more positive - if so, he looks mighty hard to beat.
Bian Hard - 1pt @ 4.0
Kyneton R6 No.4 - RED TICKER
3yo taking on the older horses here but fancy he has plenty of scope about him, won well over the mile a month ago at Werribee when he sat handy to them and ran through the line strongly. Suggest the progression to the 1875m will suit even further and he will no doubt be handy again from the favourable draw. Kyneton favours those closest to the speed, he might be a bit too good for them.
Red Ticker - 1pt @ 6.5
Townsville R1 No.2 - CRAIGLEA EVELYN
Think she's a pretty nice filly this girl and her win a month ago here at Townsville over the 1000m gives plenty of merit to that thought. Flew the gates and never at any stage looked troubled, this race is no more difficult and really pleased she stays at the trip. Lets take a stab at +4 lengths? She may well measure up in far better races than today.
Craiglea Evelyn - 2pt @ 1.45
