Australian Racing: Fiorzana has hat-trick in sights

There’s just the three meetings set to take place on Monday with wet tracks looking likely at Moruya, Tamworth and Wangaratta.

Fiorzana to score for Buckley

The sixth race at Tamworth is an interesting affair with a field of 11 set to line up for a 2100m Benchmark 66 contest due to take place on a heavy 10 surface.

Torowoto registered his first win of this spell when triumphing in a Class 2 contest over 1600m on a good track at this venue at the end of last month.

Impressed when drawing four-and-a-half-lengths clear of his rivals and while he placed second on his only previous start on heavy going at Ipswich in July last year it’s notable that his best form since then has come on a sound surface.

With that in mind and with stamina to prove stepping up in distance confirmed wet tracker Fiorzana is selected to complete a hat-trick.

Damien Lane’s charge has been performing at a lower level of late completing a Benchmark 58 double when triumphant on a soft 6 track over 2000m at Taree last month.

Had previously triumphed by a narrow margin in an 1812m contest at Port Macquarie and while the six-year-old daughter of Fiorente has been kept busy with 11 starts already in 2022 she has shown no sign of those efforts catching up with her so far and having acquitted herself well at this level in the past she looks up to scoring here with jockey Grant Buckley coming into today with a 22% strike-rate (20/89) at this track in the last year.

Pride for Wangaratta glory

American Actress showed good form when finishing a close up third in a Benchmark 58 contest over 1400m at Pakenham Synthetic when racing first up.

The four-year-old had to overcome a wide draw on that occasion and will have to do likewise if she is to register a second career success in the fifth race on the Wangaratta card, a 1400m Benchmark 58 event.

Kiran Quilty’s mount could finish only sixth when held in a soft 5 Benchmark 64 event on her only previous start on a wet track and while she clearly has the ability for a race of this nature she looks opposable with confirmed wet track performer Pindi Pride preferred.

Claimer Sheridan Clarke got a good tune out of the mare when triumphing in a course and distance Restricted 58 event on a heavy 10 track last month.

The daughter of Wanted had previously delivered a solid fifth place finish over 1623m at Moe the previous month when having to race from off the pace following a wide draw and having shown a liking for this venue in the past and with the forecast going in her favour the seven-year-old looks up to registering career win number five.

Jeans to triumph at Moruya

The fourth race on the Moruya card is expected to see Enjolras jump as favourite with Alysha Collett up.

The four-year-old has delivered a couple of respectable efforts since placing third over 1250m at Canterbury in July when racing first up.

Has changed trainers since finishing seventh of nine in a Class 1 over 1400m at Newcastle just over a month ago and he is overlooked in favour of My Blue Jeans.

Danny Williams’ charge caught the eye when delivering a third place finish at this level in a 1600m contest on a heavy 9 track at Wagga last month and the veteran performer has Nick Heywood, a three time winner from 13 starts on the son of Barbados back in the saddle for the first time since the pair placed third over 1000m at Goulburn in July.

Versatile with regards distance the most experienced runner in the field has won four times at this trip in the past and having shown a liking for this venue previously he is selected to deliver a victory racing from off the pace.
