BlackBook - Wednesday, 25 August 2021

Please see below for our #BlackBook runner comments for Wednesday, 25 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.

SANDOWN - Race 1

#5 MARS MISSION (6) - M, W & J Hawkes

Looks as though MARS MISSION is a 3yo colt with some talent. The son of Deep Field was untested in an Aug 2 jump out before matching motors for most of the way up the straight with Linas Legend on Aug 9. Considering Heat 7 on Aug 20 (orange) was the fastest time of the morning where the lowest rated horse was Sirius Suspect, he looked to hold his own just in behind them despite dropping just off them past the line. He can win a maiden on debut and will certainly be forward enough after the three jump outs.

#8 ROTOKURA (2) - R Griffiths

ROTOKURA didn’t have much room and then wasn’t asked for an effort late when 6th in an official trial on Aug 9 but the colt was very impressive in Heat 11 on Aug 16 with more room. He wasn’t away great, but travelled comfortably out very wide and came home strongly in the straight to come over the top of the leaders and win. He was given a slight push late but responded well to win by over 1L with a bit left in the tank. She ran well on debut when 4th at a huge $51 before going into town but not measuring up. She’ll go to a maiden first up this campaign and looks to be one that has come back improved.

Would've preferred ROTOKURA in a country maiden. Think MARS MISSION jumped out against the good horses on purpose and he was far from disgraced.

With the scratching of our other runner LAFARGUE, happy to be with MARS MISSION and (at least) take advantage of UniBet's bonus back for 2nd and 3rd on the fixed prices where we can get $5. ROTOKURA is a huge price (~$51) so let's have something to breakeven as well.

SANDOWN - Race 7


#11 THE GENERAL clocked the fastest 990m heat of the morning, extending away to win Heat 18 on Aug 9 by 2.5L ahead of the smart Ancestry.

Scratched multiple times over the past week. Drawn beautifully with barrier 2 here - fitness the query.
