Saturday Wrap-Up 20.06.2015

The weather was kind and even though the Titans game against the Warriors was in competition later in the day the race meeting provided a very intersting day out for the patrons and the meeting was well supported. There was spirited betting throughout the day and most interest was focused on the main meeting being the Tatt's Club Tiara meeting at our local Gold Coast track. Interstate meetings produced the usual winter track conditions. The Gold Coast track was rated in the slow range however it became evident that on pace runners were slightly advantaged . There was plenty of value in the prices for punters and most winners were well found in the betting. The quality handicap produced the NZ visitor Addictive Habit saluting the judge and the 5YO gelding was solidly supported throughout betting.  Others fancied in the market were The Offer at $7 and Lucky Largo around the $4.20 mark. The Carlton Draught Tatt's Cup was a sprited betting affair with Epingle being sent out the most fancied however there was also interest in Faust, Shoreham, Biana Mo, and Major Major along with the other roughie Bachelor Zeel. At the winning post Escado hung on with Epingle appearing slightly unlucky. As reported previously Srikandi would always be the one to beat in the Tatt's Tiara and she performed to her ability and being an on paced runner she proved the testing material for two other fancied runners in the market Avoid Lightning and Lumosty although Catkins had continual support throughout betting.  The day concluded with the two highly fancied runners Dothraki and Target In Sight fighting out the finish which according to some punters was equivalent to scoring one under par on the 18th.
