Track Condition: Good 4

 

 

 

 

Best Bet:      ALL UP WIN R7 N2 – R8 N1

VALUE:     R6 N15 ELIMBAH

ROUGHIE: R9 N4 MORE THAN MONEY

 

Race 1

 

3 TAY SWIFT has come back a better horse this preparation. She ran well last start in a hot form race, and looks the one at value here. 1 DAPPER ONE & 4 DVINA both won at Class 1 level last start and can measure up here.

Numbers: 3 – 1 – 4 – 2

Bet: Each Way 3 TAY SWIFT

 

Race 2

 

9 SOUL SECRETS put up a good run first up, when made good ground from the back of the field. She can settle closer form gate 1 here, and is the horse to beat.  14 ELLA DIVINE comes out of the same race, and was no hope from the back of the field. The wide gate isn’t ideal, but can place.

Numbers:  9 – 14 – 8 – 4

Bet: Win 9 SOUL SECRETS

 

Race 3

 

Not a race I will be betting in with so many first starters. 7 OUR NETBANK should take improvement from the race experience, and looks the nest of the raced brigade.  Keeping a close on the market moves closer to race time.

Numbers: 7 – 10 – 5 – 6

Bet: Watching the market

 

Race 4

 

Looks the perfect race for 5 IOWA to break her maiden. She over raced and was set alight early start, and was just knocked off late. Should be handling these.

Numbers: 5 – 9 – 13 – 2

Bet: WIN 5 IOWA

 

Race 5

2 BONSHO was terrific in winning last start, after blowing the start and still proving to strong.  With a even beginning, she can settle just behind the speed and be too strong again.  1 LA DOLCE VITA & 3 ALATORA should settle 1-2 in the run and finish in the money. They look the trifecta.

Numbers: 2 – 3 – 1 – 4

Bet: WIN 2 BONSHO

 

Race 6

 

Tough race here, with a number of these having a few cracks and breaking the maiden status.  Looking outside of the favorite runners for a bit of value, with 15 ELIMBAH one at odds that is a chance. He ran some good races last prep against horses who have gone and won since. His first up run was ok, and while 6.6L off the winner and second horse, he held the others comfortably and was still finding the line well enough. He is fitter here, looks a good hope.

Numbers: 15 – 2 – 3 – 4

Bet: Each Way 15 ELIMBAH

 

Race 7

 

2 DIVINE UNICORN was a good run first up, and looks the winner here. 1 TAKARAKA should run second.

Numbers: 2 – 1 – 5 – 7

Bet: WIN 2 DIVINE UNICORN

 

Race 8

 

1 TORNADO OF SOULS on top here, has trialed well and form last prep looks good enough for this. 6 WILD AVA trialed ok, but her NSW form look inferior to TORNADO OF SOULS

Numbers: 1 – 6 – 5 – 3

Bet: WIN 1 TORNADO OF SOULS

 

Race 9

A really competitive race to finish the day, with numbers 1,2,4,5,6, winning chances. 4 MORE THAN MONEY maps to get a perfect run behind a good speed, and with a touch of luck can certainly be in the finish. He has measured up to this class previously, and hasn’t missed a place in 8 first up runs.

 

Numbers: 4 – 2 – 1 – 5

Bet: WIN 4 MORE THAN MONEY
