BlackBook - Friday, 8 October 2021

Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Friday, 8 October 2021. The runner's highlighted are our #BlackBook runners (the key runners of focus), while those included in the 'other' section of each race are additional runner's that have jumped out well enough to be worth noting. Our figures and benchmark ratings are from PuntingForm.



#12 FABRIKKA should be ready to make her return to the races now and be competitive first up. Following a well held together Sep 10 jump out, the now-3yo filly went to the line alongside the 65-rated 5yo Fiery Red in Heat 11 on Sep 17 (white) and although given more of a push, she pretty much matched motors with him. She sat 2L or so off the speed throughout before being given a push to go up alongside Fiery Red and even in front past the line. She looks to move well and come back improved as a 3yo. Happy to follow her into (hopefully) a country mid-week maiden.

#12 FABRIKKA had another jump out, finishing 2nd in Heat 13 on Sep 28 over the 1000m and it wasn’t the most convincing jump out. She was hard ridden throughout the straight, given the whip and all but never really made any ground on the leader or put any ground on those around here. In saying that, those around her were BM70 level and she’s a maiden, while this was the fastest 1000m heat of the morning. She can still go well first up but it’s not going to be a high confidence play.
