J Scott The Inside Word

PENRITH NSW, Thursday, June 21

Race 6: TRES VITE (10, Chris Geary), mob. 1720m: “First-up in Sydney after taking while to settle in. She is the best horse in the race with the worst draw so will need luck but can win.”

Race 7: GETARATTLEON (5, Chris Geary), mob. 1720m: “Has been disappointing so will be driven quiet early and try to hit the line.”

MARLBOROUGH HRC, Friday, June 22

Race 5: TAIMATE ANGUS (6, Jonny Cox), 2300m std: “Finds a tough race with so many horses with multiple wins far better off in handicap than him. But he is honest and will go for a spell after this trip, if he’s not sold.”

Race 6: BELL OF BROOKLYN (1, Sam Ottley), mob. 2300m: “Gets her chance in the right field and has the draw but has been disappointing so a place chance.”

Race 7: SOME EXCUSESOMEWHERE (12, Sam Ottley), 2300m std: “Stand a query but if he goes away and settles he’s a winning chance.”


MENANGLE NSW, Saturday, June 23

Race 5: THE BUS (7, Chris Geary), mob. 1609m: “Has been average but was better on Tuesday and we will be happy to run 2nd or 3rd to Ignatius.”

Race 7: ROCKER BAND (9, Leigh Sutton), mob. 1609m: “Racing a bit below her best but gets into a nice race and can threaten.”
