Craig Rail's Preview for Geelong

Fri, 18 Oct 2019

The Ray Beckley Memorial is the feature race on the program of ten races at Geelong and has attracted a strong field of pacers. The class runners appear to be the Andy Gath trained Explicit Castle, which is racing in peak form and the Emma Stewart trained Perfect Major but they won't find it an easy task. Image Of Starzzz is racing well, Chrissy Divinyl has early speed, Majestic Cruiser is dropping back from the Metropolitan class, Bopper Jet has a powerful finishing burst and Onethecrestofawave is not without a chance either. It should be a very competitive event and luck in running may be the key to the result.

Track information

Circumference: 960m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Emma Stewart, Leading Driver: Chris Alford

The Moral

Race 5 - No.6 Our Millionaire

He had no luck whatsoever from the inside of the second line at Terang and is sure to be driven aggressively from this draw.


Take On

Race 9 - No.6 Fleetwood Rock

He won nicely on his debut and appears to be promising but the outside of the front line in a small field of six runners may pose some problems.

Best Bet(s) - $25 win
R1 No.8 - Four Lonely Nights$2.6*
She has the perfect trailing draw behind the likely leader and has resumed from a break in good form.
R5 No.6 - Our Millionaire$1.2*
He is a tough type and will appreciate being drawn out in the open this evening.
R8 No.4 - My Sweetchillyphilly$1.3*
She met a tough field over the 2240m at Melton last outing. The drop back in class and distance can see her return to winning form.
Best Value - $10 win, $15 place
R4 No.6 - Harrys Flight$3.5*
He is resuming from a break but he won a trial at Bacchus Marsh on the weekend and he does appear to be beautifully graded in this event.
R9 No.2 - Bruhaha$3*
He did appear to have his chance at Maryborough but he strikes a suitable assignment this evening.
Best Roughie(s) - $5 win, $15 place
R7 No.10 - Bopper Jet$12*
He is meeting a good field first up but he possesses a powerful finishing burst and will be suited if there is a genuine tempo throughout.
