After a delay to her comeback due to the extreme heat in Sydney on Saturday Winx picked up exactly where she left off in the Spring yesterday with effortless win in the Apollo Stakes once again easily accounting for Hartnell by 2.8 lengths. But we have found another horse in the race we think there will be profit to be made in the near future.
Horse To Follow: Endless Drama, looks to have comeback very nicely and would be surprised if it doesn’t collect one of the big races over the Autumn Carnival.
Ride Of The Day: Josh Parr’s ride on Global Glamour where he absolutely pulled their pants down on the fittest horse in the race.
Run Of The Day: Zestful, found all sorts of problems but still managed to win after being very heavily supported. Would have been a tragedy beaten.
Forget It Ran: Malaguerra, sat up outside the speed 2 weeks after equalling Miss Andretti’s track record at Mooney Valley off a short let up from the Winterbottom in Perth. Think he was just flat 2nd up.
Below are the Crown Bet reports for Caulfield and Eagle Farm.
CAULFIELD- Saturday 11 February 2017
Race 1- Second Bullet $4.60, won from De Little Engine, Our Bottino

Race 2- Oak Door $4.80, won from Attention, Knowable
The winner Oak Door was 2nd best supported to win being $6 into $4.80 with Ruthven being the best supported runner at $6.50 into $4.60 but knocked up in the last 100. The placegetters both were easy in the market with Attention being $4.40 out to $7.50 and Knowable $7 out to $8.50.
Race 3- Catchy $2.20, won from Limestone, Arctic Angel
Catchy and Limestone were best supported in the market with Catchy being $2.50 into $2.20 and Limestone $3.30 into $2.50 then back out to start at $3. Arctic Angel ran 3rd with some late support being $9 into $7 with Roomooz the same at $9 into $7.
Race 4 – Property $4.80, won from Pariah, Wait For No One
There was strong early support for Can’t Remember who was $26 into $11 before drifting to start at $17 with Mighty Boss being $41 early out to $81 with solid specking late seeing him back in to start at $31. Property was solid in the market being $5 into $4.80.
Race 5 – Fuhryk $2.40, won from Oregon’s Day, Savanna Amour
2nd placegetter Oregon’s Star was $20 into $10 but was very comfortably held by the winner Fuhryk who was the only other runner punters had eyes for being $4 into $2.40. Zunbaqa was absolutely friendless being $5.50 out to start at $19.
Race 6 – Super Cash $15, won from I Am A Star, Chautauqua
Super Cash was well supported being $19 into $15, I Am A Star and Wild Rain had some interest coming in slightly but Chautauqua had very little interest being $2.35 out to $2.70.
Race 7 – Black Heart Bart $3.20, won from Turn Me Loose, Ecuador
The winner Black Heart Bart was clearly the best supported runner and the money was spot in being $3.60 into $3.20. Malaguerra had some supporters but was $3.50 out to $3.80.
Race 8 – Burning Front $3.60, won from Humidor, Tally
The Weir supporters were in action again with Burning Front being $4.20 into start at $3.60, stablemate Humidor was unwanted being $4.20 out to $6 with a little bit of late money back to jump at $5.50. Tom Melbourne being ridden differently had some support being $9.50 into $7 and Pilot D’Essai being $12 into $8.50.
Race 9 – Prussian Vixen $13, won from Silent Sedition, Ameristralia
Followers of the Noblet stable played up their earlier winnings on Super Cash to have Silent Sedition being very heavily supported at $5.50 into $2.80 to just miss the winner Prussian Vixen who was always solid at $13. Very little support for anything else in the market.
The Money Was Right: Second Bullet at $8.50 into $4.60 being very strongly supported once markets opened got the cash winning very comfortably.
Left It In The Bag: Although she only missed in a photo the supporters of Silent Sedition just missed after being very heavily supported from $5.50 into $2.80.
Friendless: Attention was $4.40 out to $7.50 but ran well to finish 2nd to defy the drift.
DOOMBEN – Saturday 11 February 2017
Race 1 – RUBY RED HEART $2.25, won from LADY LARK, FELINO BEL

Race 2 – ARKI $1.95, won from YOHO, FRIGHTENING BOLT
Arki was the clear favourite opening at $3.30 and winning at $1.95. The placegetters were unwanted in betting with Yoho and Frightening Bolt both $11 out to $15.

The punters continued their strong analysis of the best chances in race 4 where Ahndras opened $2.70, touched $2 and then eased out to jump at $2.70. Ringo’s A Rockstar was well supported from $4.60 into $3.60 but didn’t really offer his much finishing a few lengths off the winner.
Race 5 – HEARTBREAK HARRY $9.50, won from JETSONIC, MOTION GRANTED
Havasay was one of the best backed runners for the day, opening at $4 and heavily backed to start at $1.65 finishing fourth. Heartbreak Harry won the race on the back of early support form $11 into $7.50 before easing to start at $9.50.
Race 6 – DON’T TELL MAMA $3.60, won from PASSIONFLOWER, ROXY RHYTHM
Don’t Tell Mama ($4.80 into $3.60) took advantage of the weight benefit to score from Passionflower ($6) and Roxy Rhythm (specked form $34 into $15). Windy Sands had solid support from $11 into $6 but failed to fight out the finish.
Race 7 – MARKSFIELD $7.50, won from HELAROCITY, LEGAL PROCEDURE

Race 8 – SIEGFRIED $3.40, won from MY LITTLE FLICKA, JOPA
Siegfried was always in punters thoughts winning the eighth race at $3.40 after touching $4.20. Murt The Flurt was $4.80 into $4.20, while Binalong Road was pushed from $14 into $6.50, however both missed out on filling the placings. Runner-up My Little Flicka was specked form $21 into $10.
Race 9 – FIERY HEIGHTS $2.90, won from SHEISWHATSHEIS, PROFILER
Fiery Heights was well supported from $3.80 into $2.90 to score in the last ahead of Sheiswhatsheis ($6 eased to $8.50).

Left It In The Bag: Havasay was the best supported runner by far being $4 into $1.65 and being very comfortably held beaten 3.9 lengths.
Friendless: Sheiswhatsheis was $6 out to $8.50 but almost defied that drift to beat the heavily backed Fiery Heights in the last.
