Week review


  • Three gallopers attacked Kerang’s eight race card last Saturday and all produced strong results.
  • Anthemic continued his rich vein of form in race six’s 0-58 handicap (1100m), winning by half a length. Cory Parish gave the son of Tavistock a great ride from gate six, taking off from the 200m mark, leaving his rivals behind. Anthemic has now won two races from his four starts this prep, as well as a second place finish and a fourth.
  • Garros finished third, two lengths off them in race five (0-58 over 1800m) coming off his win at Wodonga last start.
  • Turnaquid wasn’t far off snatching victory in race seven (0-58 over 1100m). The four-year-old mare was only just ran down Denirra, finishing half a length behind.


  • New acquisition Brenlyn’s Trooper returned to the winners’ circle for the first time since 2021 at Wagga on Sunday. Running just his second start for the stable, the six-year-old gelding proved far too strong for his rivals in the Wagga Whiz (BM84 over 1000m), winning by three lengths in an outstanding run. Hoop Jack Martin gave the galloper a perfect ride, sitting just off the pace.
  • Chairman’s Choice also ran in the Wagga Whiz and did well from widest barrier to finish fourth, five and a half lengths off his stablemate.


  • Six runners will head to Narrandera’s country TAB meeting tomorrow.
  • Sheila and Turnaquid will kick off the day in race four’s BM50 (1000m). Sheila’s drawn gate five, while Turnaquid will jump from 14 with both looking strong chances. Coming off a great run at Kerang, Turnaquid drops down in class and looks a leading chance to grab her third career win.
  • Race five will see Eamonn’s Memory and Dangers try their luck in the BM50 (1200m). Eamonn’s Memory runs first-up off the back of strong jump outs, while Dangers will run his first start for ADR.
  • Jahbath and Legal Zou have been accepted into race six (BM50 over 1400m). Jahbath drops down in class from his last run at Wodonga where he finished three lengths off them and looks a top contender.


  • Albury’s meeting on Tuesday will see Mojo Music, Anthemic and Rainbow Thief in action.
  • All three runners will feature in race seven’s BM66 (1000m). Mojo Music finished second in the same grade last start at Corowa, while Anthemic steps up in class as he goes for back-to-back wins.
  • Rainbow Thief will need to improve.
