ROYAL RANDWICK MOUNTING YARD REPORT......by Matthew Howard [ More Items ]  
Peter Snowden (pictured) co-trains Matthew Howard's horse to follow - Roaring To Win.
23/01/17

The big talking point from racing over the week end has centred on Hugh Bowman’s winning ride on Olympic Academy and his failure to ride the horse to the line, fortunately for Bowman he got the bob at the right time otherwise you would have to think that his Autumn Carnival would be over before it began. Even though Olympic Academy won I cannot believe how light the fine of $600 is and believe that a much larger fine and or a suspension would have sent a much better message to jockeys heading into the Autumn Carnival.

Talking of Olympic Academy followers of this report should have had a very good collect with Olympic Academy being Matthew Howard’s horse to follow from 2 weeks ago. Keep reading below to see who to follow from Saturday’s meeting.

Below is Matthew Howard’s weekly just racing mounting yard live report which you can also read live Matthew’s thoughts on his Facebook page each Saturday prior to the race to assist with backing winners each Saturday:

Looks clearly the best horse here. Coat looks well, horse is quite fit. Should win.

Has a lot of growing up to do this one. At least it looks fit.

EXCEEDS

1 length improvement

Good moving horse however her coat is still as dull as it was last start and has only shown moderate improvement between runs. Still quite big.

 

PANDEMONIUM

1st time seeing the horse

Not sure I would have paid $300,000 for this horse. Good in the coat about the only thing I like. Not much improvement either.

3rd

SWEET BOUQUET

1st time seeing the horse

Just a horse and that’s giving it more credit than it deserves. It’s looking for its mother.

GUARD OF HONOUR

1st up

Suspect we won’t find a better presented horse all day. In great order.

For the roughie in the field, this horse actually looks pretty good. Forward, relaxed, nice strong, long striding gelding.

4th

TACTICAL ADVANTAGE

Backwards 1 length

Like this horse, however did parade slightly better last time I saw it.

ON THE SPOT

What's the best thing coming out of Melbourne? The Hume Highway. Back on it.

Races well but not one I get excited about.

OLYMPIC ACADEMY

Top Selection from the mounting yard. Called it out as a horse that would win either this start or next start when I saw it parade at Warwick Farm. Money is on.

Paraded awful last start, better today but doesn’t have same strength as some of these.
