Kiss The Bride will take winning form into the first at Gosford today and looks well placed to record another win. The Savabeel gelding simply does not know how to run a bad race and was unlucky not to win when second at his first two starts when resuming but was rewarded with a dominant win at this trip at Kembla Grange last time out. He’ll take further improvement into this and will be piloted by Nash Rawiller.
Perigord hasn’t been seen at the races since July, but he is a proven fresh performer and looms as a live chance at a price today ($12 at publish). Formerly saddled by Bjorn Baker, the I Am Incincible gelding broke his maiden in style at this point of his preparation last time in and continued to perform admirably as the bar was raised. He trialled well leading into this contest and looks up to a big performance.
Exhilarates is a classy filly and can make a winning return in this afternoon’s Gosford Guineas. The Snitzel filly famously won the Magic Millions Classic on the Gold Coast last summer and has returned plenty of excellent performances in two preparations since, including consecutive wins in the Group 3 Quezette and Listed Atlantic Jewel when resuming in spring. She’s had the benefit of a trial and will take beating.
Toryjoy was an impressive all-the-way winner when resuming at Rosehill and this afternoon’s Belle Of The Turf Stakes at Gosford looks the perfect feature race for her. The Chris Waller-trained mare has been a notable performer throughout her entire career to date, and she defied a big drift in the market to easy score first-up. She can go straight to the lead again today and will give them something to chase.
