Friday Flutter

All the coat pullers are labeling Pelgrave - Tuncurry R4 - as the bet of the day yet it's still paying $2.30 FO. Improving with each run for Kris Lees and experienced capable hoop Andrew Gibbons is back on board again.

Value of the day could be Nothing Too Hard in race 7. A Paul Perry-trained gelding comes back to the bush after a couple of runs in town - one of which saw him place at The Farm - and has the services of the useful Adrian Layt. Wide draw shouldn't matter in the 2000m Gold Cup. Good each way bet. Currently $9.50/$3.20

Comp Race 10

Fasika Out to Prove Everest Credentials

Gr2 Sheraco Stakes favourite Fasika (So You Think-Jarada, by Redoute's Choice) is out to prove her Everest credentials at Rosehill on Saturday, reports racingnsw.com.au. Trainer Joe Pride observed, "She has the ability to absorb pressure, she has good speed herself. She's a good horse at Randwick, handles wet or dry and still has upside. I think she is an ideal candidate." The mare is currently the $2.50 favourite for the race and a $34 chance for the Everest. "It's one of the fastest races you'll see for a mares race," Pride said. "It's unusual, these fields in past years have been smallish. This is a massive field with a stack of pressure in it. She runs a really strong 1400m so 1200m first-up with a hot pace is great. The thing I like about good tempo in races is you generally get the best horse winning the race and that's what I consider my mare to be." Winner of four of her ten starts, Fasika won the Gr3 Wenona Girl Stakes back in March, and was third in the Gr1 All Aged Stakes at her last start. She has had three trials to prepare her for Saturday's first up run for this season.

Comp Race 7

Last Campaign Underway for Fiscal Fantasy

Fiscal Fantasy has become one of trainer Frank Ritchie's stable favourites and he admits it will be a sad day when she leaves his Cambridge barn for the last time, reports loveracing.nz. The 6YO mare will begin her final preparation with Ritchie in the Auckland Co-op Taxis 1600 at Ellerslie on Saturday and, while he has reserved expectations heading into the race, he hopes it will set her up for some bigger targets later this spring. "We would like to get a little bit more black-type for her," Ritchie said. "She has done well as it is, she has won a couple of Group 3s and is Group 1-placed, but it would be nice if we could enhance that a bit. This will be her last campaign. After this we will certainly breed from her or sell her to a stud." Ritchie has utilised the warmer climate of Ruakaka over the winter months, where the Last Campaign has had two trials. "There are two big advantages of sending her up there," he said. "She has been to the beach a few times, she is used to it as we stop off in Levin when we go down to the central districts, and she loves it. It just brings her on." Ritchie has Group 1 on the radar for the daughter of Skilled: "I think she will improve with the run, but she will need to run a race, we are looking at the Livamol (Gr1, 2040m) and that is looming large."

Cummings Oozing Let’s Elope Confidence

Even by his naturally ebullient glass half-full standards, Godolphin trainer James Cummings is positively glowing ahead of Saturday’s Gr2 Let’s Elope Stakes (1400m) at Flemington. A late withdrawal from the Gr1 Memsie Stakes, Savatiano (Street Cry) was a determined winner of her last start, the 1400m Gr2 P.B. Lawrence Stakes where she defeated Sircconi and Kings Will Dream. “She’ll be fighting fit and dangerously hard to beat,” stated Cummings. “This might be Plan B after missing the Memsie Stakes, but she carries winning form against the males over this distance into a race that suits a mare who has won 10 races and close to $2 million.” Commenting on her second-up prospects, Cummings noted, “Her win in the Lawrence maintained her great first-up record, and there’s not a lot wrong with her second-up form either.” Drawn to get a sit from a nice draw, Savatiano is Unibet’s $2.60 favourite for the third on the card, ahead of Arcadia Queen at $3.30. If she’s improved as much from her Lawrence run as Cascadian did subsequently in the Memsie when flashing home from a minute back, the Let’s Elope is Savatiano’s to lose.

Comp Race 10

Underrated Mizzy ready to step up

Anthony Cummings is expecting a bold show from Mizzy (Zoustar) when the mare attempts to defend her title in tomorrow’s Sheraco Stakes (Gr 2, 1200m) at Rosehill. The five-year-old hasn’t raced since last spring when her campaign culminated with a placing in the $7.5m Golden Eagle (1500m) so her trainer believes she will come on plenty for her trial over 1050 metres at Randwick on Tuesday, where she finished two lengths behind Group 1 winner Bivouac (Exceed And Excel). “She needed more of a hit-out than what you would normally see in those sorts of trials in the week they race but she will take benefit of that into Saturday,’’ Cummings told RacingNSW. “She came out of it bouncing so it hasn’t knocked her around at all. I think she will run really well and then it’s a matter of how the race is run, if she gets the run she is entitled to from the gate she will make her presence felt. She has a good record and doesn’t seem to get much credit for it. She had that best maiden in Australia tag for a while but when she hit her straps she did it seriously and just kept winning.”

Positive Peace the real deal: Baker

Positive Peace (Stratum) will kick off her spring in the Sheraco Stakes with her trainer Bjorn Baker confident the Group 2 winner can prove she is a genuine stakes-grade horse. The five-year-old progressed from midweek grade to land the Emancipation Stakes (Gr 2, 1500m) last season and Baker said: "She has definitely come back better. She is stronger than she has been and her trackwork suggests she is more forward than what she has been," Baker said. A first-up winner, Positive Peace has not featured in two recent barrier trials, the latest when fifth to star colt Farnan. But from a perfect draw in barrier three and with her race-day gear on, Baker expects a bold performance. "The blinkers on make a world of difference. What you see at the trials and what you see on Saturday will be two different horses," Baker said. "She has got a good gate so hopefully we will be able to 'posi' up in the first four or five and she's not out of it. I give her a really good each-way chance."

Comp Race 8

Levendi on cups trail

Levendi (Pierro) lines up in tomorrow’s Makybe Diva Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) as the rank outsider with his trainer Peter Gelagotis hoping for a repeat of last year's result when Perth galloper Gatting (Hard Spun) won at $101. Levendi hasn't won a race since the 2018 Australian Derby (Gr 1, 2400m) at Randwick and has only had three starts since and Gelagotis said: "This is the first preparation everything has gone right. He's going great. His work has been really sharp and I'm thrilled with the way he is going. Everybody has written him off but we think he's in for a really good campaign. He's had a good, long, solid build up and his work over the last month has been sharp." Gelagotis said so many things had gone wrong in the past two years since Levendi’s Group 1 win. "This is the first time in ages he hasn't had one thing or another. In previous preparations he's had a fractured hip, copped a virus. This time around he's had a faultless campaign. This is a nice kick-off for him. We've got the Cups in mind and his best distance is 2000 metres to 2400 metres."

Brown ready to ride Jenni

Former champion apprentice Ethan Brown believes the 1600 metres of the Maybe Diva Stakes will suit his mount Princess Jenni (High Chaparral) as he looks to ride his first elite-level winner. "I think Princess Jenni will appreciate the step up to a mile, she ran good sectionals last start in the Memsie when running home strongly,” Brown told Racing.com. "It's a smart field but I think she's getting a bit underestimated second-up, I'm just really thankful to David Brideoake and owner Tony Ottobre for trusting me with the ride again as well as on Jenni's Rainbow in the Cap D'Antibes (Stakes).”

Zoutori chasing back-to-back wins in Bobbie Lewis

Zoutori (Zoustar) will also be out to post back-to-back wins in a feature race tomorrow when he lines up in the Bobbie Lewis Quality (Gr 2, 1200m) at Flemington. A two-length winner of the 1200-metre contest 12 months ago, the four-year-old is set to face nine rivals this time round. "He looks really well placed in the race and we've had a great preparation with him," Simon Zahra, who trains Zoutori in partnership with Matthew Ellerton told Racing.com. "He hasn't been penalised too much at the weights and he loves the Flemington straight course. When he races fresh, he goes quite well."

Strange ride on Pelgrave. Jumped well. Let it drift back to awkward spot midfield on rail, then had to progress 3-4 wide around the field on the turn before weaving a passage in the straight only to go down by 3/4 length - grrr
