Gold Coast Race 8: Tattersall's 150th Anniversary Stakes 1200m

19/06/2015: Into The Red was caught wide last run thus the half length defeat was quite solid behind Excellantes. The problem is he isn't always the cleanest beginner but I am taking him on trust from his favourable barrier. If Target In Sight starts relatively cleanly, because he can miss the kick too, he is a serious danger to Into The Red, on his Deep Field form line for starters. Forgive his last run because he was caught wide and was also in the worst going out wide. The run before he was off 28 days, so there's a slight forgive there and the run before that he was unlucky in the Hall Mark Stakes. Kaepernick has heaps of ability but he is one of those horses that frustrate punters but in this even affair he has to be considered a top chance as well. Office Bearer hasn't won a race this racing season from seven runs however considering spell breaks it seems there have been problems bar this preparation when both runs have been solid efforts. He is a top chance also. Territory was held up first up and although he has a poor one from seven second up record looking back a few runs with close finishes to Ball Of Muscle and Weary suggests he is a good chance in this weaker affair. Enquare is massive overs on her second up run last campaign when second to Forever Loved at Flemington though that was against her own sex. She didn't fire first up and was outclassed last start and with two wins from four in the wet don’t be surprised if she at least places.
