Daily Mail: Running machines at Horsham

In-form chasers Zipping Scorcher (won 10 from 17) and Action Girl (won 10 from 12) headline a 410m Grade 5 final at Horsham this afternoon, but Run Machine – victorious in two of his last three races – is eyeing an upset win.

The promising Nyah Nyah Flyer features in a 485m Restricted Win heat, while Robin’s Choice, Russian Berry, Hatters Lane and Parlo Bale are contesting a 410m Free For All.

Pink Diamond 425m finalist Throw Caution stands out in a Grade 5 300m race at Healesville today, while Saturday night winner Blue Spot and Senor Senor duel in a 300m Free For All.

First
?: Place – ORSON DELIGHT
? Healesville ? Race 10 ? Box 8 ? 300m ⏱ 1:54pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.24 Place (Top two finish required)
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540556/race/10


Second
?: Win – THROW CAUTION
? Healesville ? Race 11 ? Box 1 ? 300m ⏱ 2:10pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.40 Win

Third
?: Place – ROCKABYE BEAR
? Horsham ? Race 6 ? Box 6 ? 485m ⏱ 5:36pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.45 Place (Top two finish required)
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540557/race/6


The Watchdog says
? : ORSON DELIGHT (8) was impressive here last time out, and he exits the same draw today, so a top-two finish looks likely. THROW CAUTION (1) has panels on his rivals and he should be leading throughout. ROCKABYE BEAR (6) had little luck when resuming and he is expected to make amends today.


Multi price:
$2.51

? $2 Place – WATCH THE CLOCK

? Must Watch Race ?

Grade 5 Final

? Horsham ? Race 7
? Box 2 ? 410m ⏱ 5:52pm

TAB fixed odds: $2.10 Place

The Watchdog says ?: WATCH THE CLOCK (2) runs into a few good ones but if BLAZING NENNA (1) can kick up early, he should be able to get a nice run through in the middle stages and hit the scoreboard in a great final including ZIPPING SCORCHER (4) and ACTION GIRL (5).

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview ?:

ACTION GIRL (5) has won ten of 12 and she went through the first marker in a blistering 10.08sec before stopping the clock in a brilliant 22.92sec in her heat win. The box draw hasn’t done her any favours but if she can carve out something similar to her heat run, they will have a hard time holding her out. ZIPPING SCORCHER (4) has won ten of 17 and he is armed with a breathtaking turn of foot once balanced. He went a little slower in his heat win, however he has the ability to push the 23-second barrier, so if the favourite happens to miss the kick, he will be there to capitalise. BLAZING NENNA (1) is back in form, while talented types WATCH THE CLOCK (2), RUN MACHINE (6) and BEATRIX BALE (8) all deserve a mention.

The Watchdog’s selections: 5 – 4 – 1 – 2

? $4 Win – GYARADOS
? Horsham ? Race 11 ? Box 1 ? 410m ⏱ 7:15pm
TAB fixed odds: $3.30 Win
Form ? https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540557/race/11


The Watchdog says
? : He is racing with confidence at present and from the good draw, he should get every chance to make an impact. There is a fair bit of pace in the middle, but if he can step on terms, he has a breathtaking turn of foot and that should see him hold the lead and boot away in the middle stages.
