Weekly Review - August 10 to August 16

CASTERTON - 10 August 2020

We had an opinion of PICCADILLY STEET prior to her resuming off only the one jump out but she was very disappointing on the Heavy8 track when leading and dropping out. She’s since had two jump outs on Jul 29 and then again when winning Heat 4 on Aug 10 at Casterton ahead of the 68-rated Foxy’s Star. That first up run was too bad to be true and think she’s worth giving one more chance at big odds second up on a dry track (maybe even synthetic) over the 1000m/1100m.

The un-raced Lindsey Smith 3yo in SHOCK AND AWE took out Heat 6 on Aug 10 in convincing fashion as he had a fair bit on this field. The $120k purchase was also a comfortable 2nd in a Jul 29 jump out and looks like one above average. The Lindsey Smith stable is in form and this looks like another nice type they have on their hands.

Liked how much ground she made up in a Jul 29 (yellow) jump out, the 3yo filly SPANGIRL was even more impressive in Heat 7 on Aug 10 when winning. The daughter of Starspangledbanner took a different approach in this jump out, leading from start to finish and showing a nice kick when asked for an effort.

TYDEUS was 2nd to Corner Pocket (since 2nd on debut) in a Jun 3 (yellow) jump out and looked more comfortable in the run. The 3yo colt looked super when winning Heat 8 on Aug 10 by a huge margin to suggest he is above average. Another nice Lindsey Smith 3yo after also winning a May 27 jump out and going to the line alongside Mystery Shot and Corner Pocket (again) in a May 20 jump out.
