Feature: Gerard Twomey Expert Comment’s, No Doubts About Jack

The Group One double at Caulfield has two hot favourites, but IASbet.com Racing Analyst, Gerard Twomey, believes there is plenty of depth in both races.

“The Underwood appears again to lack genuine speed, which should allow So You Think to dictate terms from Heart Of Dreams in the box seat again. Metal Bender will also push forward but could face the breeze unless Craig Newitt elects to take a Zabrasive forward from his wide gate. So You Think is the obvious one to beat, however Heart Of dreams has been specifically targeted at this race, he peaks third up at each preparation and on his favourite track Heart Of Dreams gets the perfect opportunity to test the vulnerability of the favourite who is second up. We’ve seen good support for Shocking who is in from $12.00 to $10.00 already” said Twomey.

Twomey, like many punters, has few doubts that the top weight, Doubtful Jack, has the quality to perform at Group One level in the Sir Rupert Clarke. Twomey said “Doubtful Jack has been totally dominant in each of his last four victories and possess the necessary Group One speed to take a power of beating. This doesn’t appear to be an overly strong field, however he can expect plenty of competition from the high class mare Response. She’s only lightly raced and her two runs this time in have been very encouraging. Gold Salute is a very consistent performer in this company. He found the 1000m a little short first up, but he has a great record at the 1400m, goes well second up and is sure to be charging home.”

On a great program, Caulfield Cup favourite Moudre, will be looking to win the Naturalism to secure his place in the Cup. In the preludes, the colts and geldings version has Toorak Toff as the horse to beat, while for the fillies it’s a raffle for punters in an open race with many winning chances.
