Weekly Review - October 25 to October 31

CRANBOURNE - 25 October 2021

We were following SKIPPING GIRL into her debut after some nice jump outs and she should’ve won. She had no luck, held up and only went down by 1.2L at a very nice $14 with the run rating +9.2 on PuntingForm. Back to the jump outs in between runs, she was way too classy for them in Heat 7 on Oct 25 getting up along the inside to win, albeit in slow time for the day. She’ll pop up in a maiden second up and would think she’d be hard to beat, hopefully opening up at a nice price. She’s better than maiden grade.

BIG ME goes well. He only just won a jump out on Oct 11 on a very wet track but it was his slick win along the rail in Heat 11 on Oct 25 that has really caught the eye. He showed nice gate speed to kick up and lead, holding the rail throughout and hitting the line under his own steam but clearly having a bit on the rest of the field, winning in the fourth fastest 800m time of the morning. He moved well here, recording a nice win in slick time and looks to be above maiden grade. Keen to follow him into his debut.


Very good win by XTRA GEAR coming off the 5-week let up after finishing 7th in a Group 2 at Caulfield, coming from near last under no jockey pressure in Heat 5 on Oct 25 to get up and win in the final strides. Interested to see if she goes back to town for another throw at the stumps or if they look for a BM64 and work her through the grades.
