Saturday Wrap-Up 04.04.2015

The track stewards decided the race meeting should proceed  following a very wet week and although there were a number of scratchings owing to the heavy track the meeting was well patronised being the family day Easter Saturday.  Unfortunately the Randwick meeting was post-poned until Easter Monday due to very wet weather in Sydney so what promised to be a popular betting meeting at the Gold Coast Turf Club lost the gloss a little.

NEXT WEEK (11.04.2015)

The weather has settled and there are eleven (11) races on the card at the Gold Coast which coincides with the monster meeting in Sydney ... the 3200M Sydney Cup and the Queen Elizabeth Stakes of 2000M being the main events on the card with a fantastic supporting program. Hartnell is the ready made favourite for the Sydney Cup and at the weights looks the winner however he does have a jockey change this time. The Queen Elizabeth looks a very competitive race with the interesting aspect of the race being whether Contributor can overcome his wide barrier and can the Japanese horses improve ? Criterion looks suited .

PS Contributor is a scratching so it now appears To The World and Criterion will fight it out for favouritism.

 

Don't forget the PM Cup GCTC 25.04.2015.
