Hobart   24 Apr 2022
 
GOING: G

Monotone Mdn 1200m

Track: GOOD 4   Clouds (Max: 17)   Rail: Out 3m Entire. (Pent: 4.55).  

Many of these juveniles step out for the first time so a frantic pace early on is likely. PIIINK BEAUTY (7) resumes after finding Bello Beau to good at her most recent appearance back in February. Blinkers come off for the first time and her trial win received a good push when GeeGee Jet By won the Tasbred 2YO on Good Friday. SHARE THE GOLD (3) was in that race, seemingly having a clear plan to hold the front from gate one which ultimately resulted in him struggling to finish the race off. Blinkers replace winkers and he may have a fitness edge over other runners resuming. One of those is ELMAJAY (5) who missed a start as emergency in Devonport last Monday. ZULU ANGEL (4) couldn’t keep up with the older horses on debut before taking some ground off them late. It’s reasonable to expect improvement off that performance. JUST A NEEDS (6) wasn't far off Elmajay at the trials. SUGGESTED PLAY: Piiink Beauty to win.
