Breckon Farms once again has a good number of farm-bred or foaled, owned or related horses lining up to race this weekend.


THURSDAY
Kilmore in Race 6, a Breeders Crown Heat, are the champion filly Our Princess Tiffany who has won the NSW, NZ, South East and Queensland Oaks this season and is the series favourite to defend her 2YO title, so should be winning this and Miss Streisand who was runner-up in both the South East and Queensland Oaks and being a good beginner looks like getting a nice position to be able to complete the quinella.


FRIDAY

Auckland in Race 1 is Sea Change who was a good last-start 2nd at Cambridge, following a 3rd at Auckland prior, so despite her wide draw, should be right in this. In Race 3 is All Yours who wasa stout last-start 2nd on the course and in a good line of form, so must rate highly in this. In Race 4 is Sertorius who completed a hattrick when last presented on this course 2 weeks ago and despite being off a 40m back mark, should be able to add another win to his tally. In Race 5 is Gladamare who won her last-start here and is 3-from-4 in her recent racing, so despite her wide draw should be right in the mix here. In Race 7 is Ball Of Art who has been freshened since last presented for a win on this track and with good workout form and a handy draw should be right in this.

Over at Bankstown in Race 5 is Art I Special who took his chance for a narrow win last week on the course and in this small field should get his chance to go back-to-back.

At Hobart in Race 4 is Stylish Trend who is also down to start on Sunday at Launceston, was a last-start 4th here, so from the ace alley in this must rate a chance to some of the spoils.

At Gloucester Park in Race 2 is Ctheballerina who was a good last-start 3rd from back in the field and has the ace draw to get her chance to run in the money again here. In Race 3 is King Of Swing who disappointed when failing last time, but has won a trial since and with a little luck from his inside 2nd Row draw in this, is capable of getting some of this. In Race 6 is Crystal Sparkles who was caught wide last week and didn’t feature, after being checked out of her race prior, but was a good 2nd placing the week prior on the track, so is capable of featuring in this. In Race 7 is Tuas Delight who was a narrow last-start winner, but from the outside Front Line draw here, will have his work cut out. In Race 9 is Neighlor who is fresh-up here, having had a spell after his form tapered off last campaign, so will need to be taken on trust.

SATURDAY

Albion Park in Race 1 is Vettel who was a good last-start winner on the course, but does have a 2nd Row draw over 1660m to overcome here, so may need some luck. In Race 4 is Rocking who was also a last-start winner and comes up with a 2nd Row draw over 1660m here, so may need some luck to get into this. In Race 9 is Vasari who trailed and finished 2nd last week, after a tough win prior, but is another with a 2nd Row draw over 1660m, so may need some luck.

At Newcastle in Race 5 is Liukin who has had back-to-back close-up 3rd placings in his last 2-starts and should get his chance to do better here. In Race 7 is My Chachingchaching who was a promising 4th after 21 months off the scene and should be in the money in this small field.

At Menangle in Race 8 is Shandance who was a good 2nd placing in a 1:53.2 mile 2-starts back, then locked wheels and was checked last week, so is capable of bouncing back here.

At Melton in Race 1 are Van Mara who was parked throughout last week to finish 4th, so is capable of getting some of this and Laredo Torpedo who got tucked away 4-back on the markers last week, but still managed 4th, so he too is capable of being in the mix, despite his 2nd Row draw over 1720m. In Race 3 is Rock Tonight who broke last week and finished well back and before that hadn’t got into his races for some time, so will need to show improvement to have any chance in this. In Race 5 are Pocket Thedeal who disappointed last week when finishing last, so needs to improve markedly to be in this, Code Black who has been racing well this campaign with a win and a 2nd so should be right in this despite his outside Front Row draw and My Kiwi Mate who is fresh-up after almost a year off the scene, so will have to be taken on trust.

At Bunbury in Race 4 is Smart Fortune who has been two promising 3rd placings since resuming and should be primed to go here.

SUNDAY

Parkes in Race 8 is Ring The Till who is fresh-up from a spell and with the right run from his 2nd Row draw over 1660m here, is capable of getting some of this.

At Launceston in Race 3 is The Thug who is fresh-up for a new campaign and with a handy draw is capable of being in the mix here. In Race 4 is Stylish Trend who is also down to start on Friday at Hobart, so if he lines up here as well, he is a chance to be in the money here as well.
