Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Monday, 19 July 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. All NSW #BlackBook runners are 'other' runners.
CASTERTON - Race 2
#4 MISTA RAZZLEDAZZLE won Heat 4 on Jul 12 against more experienced gallopers including Nordic Symphony and Puckapunyal whilst clocking the fastest time of the morning. The 3yo gelding is an import, having finished 3rd on debut in NZ back in May.
Not taking $1.30 - sit back and watch at that price. Look to entertain if he gets out closer to $2+.
CASTERTON - Race 3
In her first VIC jump out, the NSW filly #10 FOUND OUR THRILL looked to be hard held throughout Heat 8 (pink) and was able to get over the top of Melisende with Too Viennese chasing. Her form is poor, 3 career starts for 0 placings so think she’s one to put on the watch list for a second jump out. A country maiden will suit but need to see another bit of work first.
Expecting #11 JOURNALESE to be breaking the maiden second up. She was held up just enough to cost her the race first up, heading back to the jump outs to win Heat 2 on Jul 6 (yellow) ahead of Imperial Lad.
Backing JOURNALESE here - think she gets a lovely run from barrier 1 and has the benefit of race fitness as the only horse under $26 (as of 8am) that isn't first up. Take the $4+ available. Smaller chance to FOUND OUR THRILL, maybe a saver but do think ANDRESS is a bigger danger.
