Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Saturday, 21 August 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.
WANGARATTA - Race 3
#2 PEREGRINUS has been gelded and it looks to have switched him on. He only had the 1 placing in 5 starts as a colt, returning now as a gelding with two jump outs win. He backed up his nice Jul 6 win (on a really Heavy track) with a 3L win in Heat 7 on Jul 12 where he did it with ease. He looks to have a nice turn of foot and he looks to be putting it together now as a gelding, hopefully this translates to raceday where we will follow.
Was simply poor first up as a gelding - maybe didn't handle the Heavy10 track? Getting a Soft(6) here and ~$5 for him, which seems overs based on his SP first up. If he doesn't win today, he'll struggle to win a race at all. Not a heap of confidence, small if playing at all.
NEWCASTLE - Race 3
#1 THE DENZEL (11) - Les Bridge
Jul 27 (Randwick) - super - was away well, sat 2nd just in behind the leader under a very strong hold - came to the outside of the leader in the straight and went to the line completely untested under a hold - closed a bit more late when given a little a little more room by Kerrin.
Latest trial was iffy and that hurts the confidence - ~$3.50 looks good enough for a small play.
NEWCASTLE - Race 6
#9 ROCCAFORTE (13) - R Litt
Aug 9 (Warwick Farm) - the colt needed to trial again after being very green on debut when finishing last - couldn’t of done much more, winning over 1175m here by 8L - looked a bit green again, was racing with the mouth open but was much better in the straight as he extended away - had race fitness but still impressive.
At $31, looks worthy of a small E/W gamble - not a stack of confidence though.
