Read the latest Western Australian racing updates and information for their race meetings on Saturday 26 November 2022.

1 – Paul

From the shock day of racing number one seed Vilana to Paulele’s devastating last-place finish, James Cummings and his Godolphin army came, saw and conquered to take their first win in the G1 Winterbottom Stakes ( 1200 m) and their first. at the elite level in Perth. Their western quest is not over yet with Cascadian second favorite behind Amelia’s Jewel in next Saturday’s G1 Northerly Stakes.

2 – Santorio

A smart horse with plenty of upside, he also reminded why trainer Stephen Miler has so many raps about him. A week after a gutsy third that blasted Amelia’s Jewel in the WA Guineas (1600m) when running wide, the gutsy son of Oratorio bounced back in the Sir Ernest Lee Steere Classic (1400m), beating what would could be another hard watch ahead. jockey Brad Parnham came through and found a gap. A trip to Melbourne next autumn for the G1 Australian Guineas (1600m) in March now looms as a real possibility.

3 – Moroccan

Statistics don’t lie. Trainer Lou Luciani revealed after the race that the son of Maschino had claimed four times and was successful each time. Seven days into the Railway Stakes, Marocchino, carrying 60½kg, showed his fighting qualities to lead and battle Neufbosc to record a second consecutive AJ victory. Scahill Cup (2100m). Winner of the Northam Cup (1600m) in October, the six-year-old is closing in on $1 million in earnings.

4 – Bitophmerite

The track at Ascot and recovering from two bouts of a virus were the concerns for Michael Campbell, but it was all plain sailing and he had nothing to worry about with the exciting head Demerit cruising to a comfortable victory despite a big slippage of bets. He is now four wins from five and described by Campbell as the fastest horse he has trained.

5 – Reviveup

Dion Luciani’s stable representative Ian Glading believes the daughter of Demerit is one of the most underrated gallopers around. Whether the assessment is correct is almost beside the point as the consistent colt has amassed six wins and four seconds from 11 starts and nearly $700,000 in money.

6 – Damien Oliver

He didn’t get the G1 he wanted in the Winterbottom Stakes with Rothfire but leaves Perth with a double. His ride on Mr Causeway, a horse he recommended trainer Roy Rogers to buy after seeing him race in Melbourne, was as wonderful as you’ll see. He left on a high after Dom To Shot, appreciating a drop in class, went trumps in the last.

7 – This will test

Luck Warwick said after Winterbottom that This’ll Testya ran arguably her best race ever – and that’s hard to argue with. The seven-year-old mare was uncharacteristically slow out of the barriers and only had Paulele at the back of the field before coming home for third. She is in the zone and her campaign under Mitch Pateman has been outstanding.
