BlackBook - Sunday, 8 May 2022

Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Sunday, 8 May 2022. 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.



#1 CATALINA BLACK CAT has had the 4x career starts with his two best runs (2nd and 4th) coming on a Soft7 and Heavy8 track, while his other two poor runs (7th and 10th) came on a Soft5 and Good4 track, so he clearly likes the wet and is coming back at the right time. He had a tick over jump out on Apr 6 when 2nd, while his win in Heat 11 on Apr 27 will have him ready to go this prep. Look for him on a wet track.

Kylie Vella generally has her debutants fit and firing, expecting #5 ZUPAGROOVE to be no different after winning Heat 7. This 4yo closed super over the top of Continuance and in only his first jump out this preparation. Looking for another jump out to back this up.

#5 ZUPAGROOVE closed super on Apr 27, backing that up with a hard held (quietly ridden) 4th in Heat 4 on May 24 (black with green sash). The 4yo was ridden with minimal urgency, sitting in behind the pace right from the jump and just cruising along with cover. He had a lot left in the tank here. Looks like he might have some ability.

*un-seen since these jump outs back in 2021, over 12 months ago*


The scratchings of ROSSMAN and OPPOSING is very disappointing and we have a Heavy track at Ballarat. ZUPAGROOVE jumped out well but it was 1 year ago so it's very hard to play him with any confidence but Kylie Vella does usually have them going first up and he's been very well backed in early markets.
