Australian Racing: Lonrioli to take advantage of the wet

We've five meetings set to take place today with provincial action on turf at Hawkesbury and Mackay plus country racing from Lismore, Moe and on the synthetic track at Pakenham.

Lonrioli for maiden triumph

Igancio and Desert Spring are both expected to have their supporters ahead of the fifth race on the Hawkesbury card, a 1500m maiden contest.

Chris Waller's Ignacio has shown solid form in two starts to date including when beaten a length into second in a maiden over 1550m on a heavy 9 track at Canterbury just over two weeks ago.

The booking of Kerrin McEvoy takes the eye here and while he encounters quicker ground he should have no issue with it having finished a solid fourth on a soft 5 surface at Kembla Grange on debut.
 
Jockey Tommy Berry does well at this venue and while his mount here Desert Spring is unraced the American Pharoah gelding has won two of his three trials and represents the powerful Ciaron Maher and David Eustace team.

Lonrioli, a twice raced three-year-old filly from the Richard and Will Freedman stable has shown a liking for wet tracks in two starts to date including when beaten less than two lengths in finishing runner-up over 1300m at this venue a fortnight ago.

Looks the main pace angle in this field and is selected to get off the mark on her first attempt at this distance.


Cochrane for Mackay glory

The fourth race at Mackay is the competitive looking Leading Jockey T Fenlon, an 1100m Benchmark 58 contest.
 
Fenlon partners last time out winner Poet's Girl in this contest but the daughter of Poet's Voice looks to have plenty on her plate here and is expected to jump as one of the outsiders.

Cochrane has won or placed on all five starts this spell and has delivered two good efforts since registering a victory in a 1000m Benchmark 55 contest on a good 4 track at Bowen just over a month ago.

The four-year-old's most recent effort came when runner-up in a Class 2 event over the same distance at Townsville last week but he has no stamina issues over the extra 100m here having finished a close second over this course and distance on his penultimate start.

Claimer Jade Doolan has won twice from four starts on the gelding and she returns to the saddle here having last partnered the pick in the previously mentioned track and trip event.
 
John Manzelmann's charge has a good draw in six and looks up to registering a third career win.


Take Yulara and McNeil for Moe success
 
The seventh race at Moe, a 2088m Benchmark 58 event set to take place on a heavy 8 track looks a fairly open affair with Romania likely to prove popular following placed efforts on two of his last three starts.

Narrowly beaten at this level when runner-up over course and distance last month he looks to hold strong claims for trainer Julius Sandhu.

Jockey Jye McNeil's four wins from five rides at his track in the last year takes the eye here however and his mount Yulara is selected to deliver a second win this spell having taken out a 2000m Restricted 58 event on a soft 5 track at Wangaratta back in May.

Generally been in good form since with the exception being a heavy defeat over 2100m at Sandown Lakeside when tenth last month.

Put that behind him however when a close up fourth over 2050m at Wodonga earlier this month and having performed well in Benchmark 64 events this spell the tactically versatile six-year-old looks up to recording a victory.
