Caesura has returned two pleasing efforts this time and is primed to break her maiden third-up at Hawkesbury this afternoon. The Exceed And Excel filly hit the line well to finish third over 1000m at Wyong first-up, before repeating that effort and result under the same conditions. The small rise in trip today looks ideal and she’s drawn a peach in gate 4.
Quick Finance has found outstanding form recently and strikes a very winnable one at Hawkesbury this afternoon. The three-year-old son of Denman flew home to score a dominant win at Kembla Grange two back, before mustering an eye-catching turn of foot to finish a close-up second behind Doctor Zous at Wyong last time out. Trainer Kevin Moses elected to scratch the horse from a tougher race at Canterbury to run here and this does look a nice race for him.
Stripping Royalty has improved for two starts this time and looks a winning chance in a wide-open race at Cranbourne today ($8.50 at publish). The Busuttin & Young-trained galloper dusted off the cobwebs with a fair effort for fifth at Swan Hill, before running on well to finish second behind Wimborne over a mile at Bendigo last time out. He harbours further improvement and has conditions to suit today.
Rexx will enjoy a drop in class in the last at Hawkesbury today and looks a tough of overs to win ($4.60 at publish). The Chris Waller-trained gelding hit the line well to round out the minors in a fair Newcastle race two back, before another competitive effort heralded a credible sixth in BM70 company on the Kensington course at Randwick last time out. This race looks far more appropriate for him.
