A winter race meeting in Goulburn often requires a fur coat anyway so best to go armed this Sunday with a Coyote and three Foxes just to be sure!
Sunday’s seven race card has a distinctly ‘wild’ feel to it with the acceptors throwing up names such as El Coyote plus another three featuring the ‘fox’ theme, i.e. Foxy Jan, Mad Fox and Think Like A Fox.
All of these gallopers are well in commission in their respective races meaning punters could do worse than follow their animal instincts in the search for a winner.
El Coyote resumes in Race 2 the TAB.COM.AU MAIDEN HANDICAP over 1300m for the John Thompson yard. The galloper looks well placed to feature after some positive results towards the back end of last campaign including a minor placing alongside the since city proven Charretera.
Coming off two trials and the pole draw El Coyote ($3.80 TAB FIXED ODDS) could easily help punters bare their teeth early in the day.
In the same race, local filly Foxy Jan ($26 TAB FIXED ODDS) keeps the furry theme going for the Wayne Hudd stable. The Foxwedge filly has shown good potential in two starts to date, with fast finishing top five results. The latest of these on her home track behind the in-form Pisa My Heart.
Later in the day in Race 4, the DOUGLASS BLINDS & SECURITY SCREENS CLASS 1 HCP over 1300m,another two “foxy types” square off.
Mad Fox backs up quickly from last week’s minor placing at Nowra for the Robert and Luke Price team and should be ready to peak after two very competitive runs back from six month lay-off. Currently a $4.60 chance with TAB FIXED ODDS, Mad Fox looks right in the race with form this campaign around a progressive galloper like Love My Cashews.
Goulburn’s big cheese in the training ranks Danny Williams saddles up Think Like a Fox in the same race with the lightly raced mare looking ready to raid the hen house after a steady run first up on her home track over six furlongs. A quick review of her second up stats highlight a runner up effort behind handy galloper The Soloist back in September last year over this trip.
And if that’s not enough animal for punters they can also find a Hasty Minx in Race 1!
Sunday’s seven race card at Goulburn kicks off at 12.55pm and the track is currently rated a Soft 5. View the fields, form and race replays for Goulburn’s meeting here.
