TRACKWALKER INFO FOR CAULFIELD
Lanes 1 to 6 as good as any and we are forecasting an advantage being forward of midfield with no reason to be off rail.
WHO’S HOT AT CAULFIELD?
Daniel Moor has become the most profitable jockey in Melbourne recently winning seven of his last 24 rides (29 per cent) and returning around +60 per cent profit on your investment.
Race 8 No.7 AYRTON
Unbeaten in five runs at Caulfield, this is your real ‘Horses For Courses’ galloper and he was our horse to follow from Derby day when he got back in a slowly run trace but charged to the line with the fastest lasty 200m of the race.
Race 7 No.1 KIMOCHI
Placed in the Group 1 Flight Stakes [1600m] in Sydney two starts back then lacked fitness when five weeks between runs at Flemington last start. Also charted a wide course there suggesting she might be the big improver. Will settle in front of the favourite, Skybird, and gets superstar rider Craig Williams in the saddle.

Race 1 No.2 AIN’TNODEELDUN
Chalked up the hat-trick last start, is simply flying at present and loves 1800m. Should kick us off on a winning note.
WHO’S HOT AT NEWCASTLE?
Always be wary when Michael Freedman takes one to Newcastle as his strike rate up there is 30 per cent for the past 12 months and if you’d backed each of his runners during that time you’d be up around 60 per cent on your investment.
TRACKWALKER INFO FOR NEWCASTLE
Pretty even across with Lanes 2 to 8 forecast to provide the bulk of the winners.
Race 8 No.1 MAZU
You may look at his dry track form where he only has one win from nine starts, but delve deeper and you’ll see the formlines around those nine runs are far superior to this. The likes of Think About It, Private Eye, Giga Kick and In Secret feature in four of his past five dry track runs. They’d lap this field. Back the class here.
Race 4 No.3 PORTRAY
Skipped clear last start in this grade only to be run down late. Will jump and sit on speed and this slightly easier, she looks ready to peak here fourth-up.
Race 9 No.11 TAVI TIME
Promising galloper, who boasts a 50 per cent win strike rate. Never got a clear crack at them first-up in town when climbing over their backs in the home straight. Had three trials coming into this prep and should be ready for the mile second-up. Wins this with even luck.
