Randwick Racing: Bowermans Office Furniture Shorts Betting Tips

September 17, 2016 by Posted in Horse Racing Tips


Bowermans Office Furniture Shorts 1100m – Group 2

With the Group 1 Colgate Optic White Stakes containing only 6 runners, including $1.10 favourite Winx, it seems more appropriate to preview the $200,000 Group 2 Shorts for the sprinters.

A field of 11 is set to line up over the 1100m at Randwick and it looks as if this will be run at a hot tempo.

Ball Of Muscle, Takedown, Smart Volatility and Howmuchdoyouloveme are all on speed types that have shown the ability to lead, but it will be Joe Pride’s 6YO gelding that should hold them all out from barrier 1.

Both Japonisme and Dothraki are set to receive lovely trails in behind the speed from barriers 4 and 5 respectively,while I expect Boss Lane to go back and try to slot in from barrier 11.

Kaepernick and Clearly Innocent will settle worse than midfield, with Sarajevo and English likely to bring up the rear of the field.

Gai Waterhouse’s mare ENGLISH resumes here for the first time since winning the Group 1 All Aged Stakes, and she shapes as one of the best bets of the day here. She won a similar race first up last preparation when coming from last with a blistering turn of foot and if she reproduces her form from last prep she should be very hard to beat. Berry jumps on, undefeated first up, won two trials leading into this and the tempo should set it up for her. $2.40 won’t last much longer.

There looks to be four main dangers.

JAPONISME was horrible first up but he didn’t seem to handle the heavy track under his 60kg impost. Back on the a firmer track here and down to 58kg on a compressed weight scale should see him improve pretty sharply. He draws ideally in barrier 4 and has won 3 from 4 over this distance so if he gets first run on English he could be hard to get past.

The likely leader in the race is BALL OF MUSCLE and he’s trialled impressively in the lead up. He has a great first up record and also flies over both this track and distance, so if he manages to get a couple of cheap sectionals he will be in it for a long way.

Snowden runners are proving very competitively in whatever they contest lately, especially those resuming from spells. DOTHRAKI has had some early money (another very good indication that he is ready to fire) and his trials have been particularly encouraging. He is another that maps to get a perfect run from barrier 5 and could run a big race first up.

Team Hawkes have one runner engaged in the form of KAEPERNICK, who was particularly impressive when winning first up over 1100m in the Ortensia Stakes at Scone last campaign. The pace of the race looks sure to suit him coming from back in the field, and he looks to be a horse that could progress over the Spring.

CLEARLY INNOCENT is chasing his 6th win on the bounce in what looks to be his toughest test to date. He’s worth including in exotics.
