Race 1 - China Horse Club Mile 1600m (Listed):
FOLLOW: Muswellbrook - 2nd. Showed a lot of heart once headed and looking like he was going to run a handy 4th. A nice horse in the making, watch for him in the spring over 1600m plus.
FORGIVE: Aristocratic Miss - 3rd Looked the winner at the furlong and just died on her run the last 100m after getting a perfect ride.
Race 2 - South Pacific Classic 1400m (Listed):
FOLLOW: Renewal - 3rd. Was the only one to stick on bravely after getting challenged for every step of the race.
FORGIVE: Isaurian - 5th. Beaten favorite in a horrible run race. Never got the trip, better suited over the short course for the time being.
FORGET: Waimmea Bay - Last. Just a horrible run
Race 3 - Percy Sykes Stks 1200m (Group 2):
FOLLOW: Pure Elation - 1st. Was too good for this field, nice 3yo races for her in the Spring to come.
FORGIVE: Outback Barbie - 3rd. Strung up in traffic until the 200m, winner was still to good and still had it's chance to run 2nd. Another strung up along the fence was 1. Setsuna.
FORGET: Sister Sledge - 9th. Had enough after her impressive debut win.
Race 4 - Provincial Championships Final 1400m:
FOLLOW: Serene Miss - 1st. Overcame the car park draw for a dominant win. Lightly raced mare who will be a serious galloper with bigger fish to fry.
FORGIVE: Bon Amis - 5th. Did do it hard throughout the run but seems to be a better horse when kept fresh over the short courses.
FORGET: None. Most will go back to their grade and win up the bush.
Race 5 - Arrowfield 3yo Sprint 1200m (Group 2):
FOLLOW: Catchy - 1st. Will take the next step into the Spring as a 4yo mare.
FORGIVE: Viridine - 8th. Forget he even went around. Over raced early once Hugh found his position which didn't help his causes at all, then was out ridden by a Moreira special as he saw what was unfolding in front of him at the 800m and kept him in a pocket for the entire race.
FORGET Perast - last. Did race 3 deep outside the leaders but still hasN'T shown a lot this time in.
Race 6 - Australian Oaks 2400m (Group 1):
FOLLOW: Unforgotten - 1st. Outstayed the field, looks a Caulfield Cup mare.
FORGIVE: Hiyaam - 2nd. Serious racehorse who may have to be ridden in an overly aggressive manner, if given a few cheap sectionals she may of won.
FORGET: None. Most have come to the end of their prep.
Race 7 - Queen Elizabeth Stks 2000m (Group 1):
FOLLOW: Winx - 1st. Bring on a fourth Cox Plate.
FORGIVE: Gailo Chop - 2nd. Second best 2000m horse in the race and beaten by the best.
Race 8 - Sydney Cup 3200m (Group 1):
FORGIVE: Almandin - 8th. Pulled up lame, still brave to run the race he did.
Race 9 - Coolmore Legacy Stks 1600m (Group 1):
FOLLOW: Alizee - 1st. We saw the real Alizee here, wow she just blew them away with her explosive turn of foot.
FORGIVE: Abbey Marie - 5th. Didn't get a lot of room in the straight and finished off well, not far off a win.
FORGET: Foxplay - 8th. Might be a victim of the Winx effect, runs well without being a threat.
