2022 Railway Stakes Replay

Railway Racehorse Rating 2022

1. Tricks Of The Trade: If it was a Cerise/White horse and W Pike was driving, you’d say it was an excellent ride. And it was a run and a half from Troy Turner. He got to a three/four wide with a cover spot and was a load. All he had to do was get some clean air, and once he did, he got to the front of his foot and was all too good.

Rating: 9/10

2. Comfort me: Wide no cover and indeed, he was right to tap up and finish last, but he had cover to find the line and was only beaten by a horse with much better carriage. Another great effort on the railway.

Rating: 8/10

3. Startrade: He had the back of the eventual winner and just couldn’t get away when he needed to, but he finally settled down and found the line well enough to take third from Resortman. Massive result for the connection.

Rating: 7.5/10

4. Resortman: Drew gate one and did no work which leveled the asking at 1600m. Became placed 200m out but did not attack the line and had to settle for a gutsy fourth.

Rating: 6.5/10

5. Last of the series: A massive effort. Back, was widest on the turn and on paper, tracked the right horse in Alaskan God but went nowhere. He was excellent from behind.

Rating: 7.5/10

6. Valuable Star: Maybe a flattering run? In the fence run, he hung around, hitchhiked without spending gas tickets, and drove hard late. Visually the flashing light was running and he was good, but I would say he was flattering to the touch.

Rating: 6/10

7. God chose: Four wide trip and er, he was brave. He looked gone on the turn but found again and was good for the line. I would have thought he was a Perth Cup horse. Wait until it gets to 2000m+.

Rating: 6/10

8. Searhin Rocs: Failed to capitalize on a good draw. I had her mapped much closer in the run, but she was shuffled back and just never decisive. I would forgive her effort.

Rating: 4/10

9. Captain Kaos: Sucked up on the fence and watching the speed, he passed behind Resortman and found the line well enough without threatening. He’s on his way to something simpler.

Rating: 4/10

10. Alaskan God: Three and four wide cover for the trip, he was there to pounce on the turn but I thought he was quite late and weak on the line so it must be a big question if he is a candidate from the north.

Rating: 2/10

11. Marocchio: I put in some work to find the front but some level of control in the middle of the race. But he just didn’t have the dash in his legs to ride them late and finish the track.

Rating: 1/10

12. Cladding: He had a good run in transit outside the main pack and tried to push the gaps to threaten, but he was going nowhere fast and just got involved late. Maybe he was fighting on his back.

Rating: 2/10

13. Karli’s Karma: He got into a nice spot behind the speed and rode nicely. But when she pushed and shoved, she failed to show her usual leg turn and came up late. The big preparation is over.

Rating: 2/10

14. Notorious: Three and four wide trip, without cover, totally forgive and just forget that he went by.

Rating: 1/10

15. Buster Bash: It used to work fine on the back so I won’t use that as an excuse. Maybe I did too much work to get up to speed, but I’d be grasping at straws to use that as an excuse.

Rating: 1/10

16. Yonkers: Defeated horse before the turn so I think the vet may find something after the race.

Rating: 0/10
