ararat race 2
#3 Freedom Escape
Freedom Escape to ready to put in a strong showing on debut on the back of three solid jump outs.
His efforts leading up to the first career have been spaced from late October to November 23 and his most recent jump out was the best of the lot.
At distances much shorter than what will suit him, he surged through a needle-eye opening at the top of the Penshurst straight to hit the lead and then finish third under riding.
That is going to top him off perfectly for this 1300-metre race as he steps up in distance throughout this preparation.
Suggested Bet: Freedom Escape win at $4.2
Suggested Exotic: Quinella 3 & 7
ararat race 4
Beauweevil can run a brave race on the quick back-up after finishing third behind a potential city-class horse in Starion at Kilmore last start.
He got the back of the leader, but look a little bit flat footed when the pace really came into the race.
After looking as though he was going to be beaten a long way, he stuck to his task very well and it suggests the rise to 2000 metres might be ideal for him.
Coming up against slower horses should see him land in the land and if he can control the front he is going to be hard to run past.
Suggested Bet: Beauweevil each-way at $12 the win and $3.7 the place.
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 5, 6, 12
ararat race 5
Anikery has two duck eggs next to her name on the form guide, however do not let that fool you here.
She has raced in much harder BM-64 grade at her last two starts than the BM-58 she faces today and despite having to carry 63kgs, she looks well placed.
The speed map looks to open for her here as it did in her win at this level three starts ago.
Hoping she can find the front and roll along at a good clip to get the rest of the field chasing from a long way out.
Her jump out in between runs was sound and a sign that she is going at her best.
Suggested Bet: Anikery each-way at $6.5 the win and $2.8 the place
Suggested Exotic: Quinella 1 & 7
ararat race 7
#4 Fabian's spirit
He usually finds one or two better than him on the day, but Fabian’s might just very well find himself a winner here.
Barrier one looks ideal for him as he can settle one back the inside if Harry Coffey is nice and positive from the gates.
Think he coil up from the inside barrier and then let loose in the final stages of the race to run over the top of the leaders.
Want to see him cuddled up and nursed along behind the leaders in a race that looks void of speed, which see him be able to use his turn-of-foot to full effect.
Hard to beat with even luck.
Suggested Bet: Fabian’s Spirit win at $3.6
