Rail Position: True Entire Course

Track Condition: Good 4

Weather: Fine



Best Win: R2 N3 GRACIDA  $1.9 bet now

Best Value: R7 N8 DAMN FINE  $16 bet now


Race 1


A small field of 6 runners engaged here, with 4 of these first up from a spell. Going with the fit horse here in 6 MUDDY ROPE.  He should be able to get across to sit third with cover, and with a fitness edge, he can get over the top of them with a sustained run from the 600m.

Numbers: 6 – 3 – 1 – 4


Suggested Bet: 1 x 2 Each Way 6 MUDDY ROPE  $4 bet now



Race 2


The even money about 3 GRACIDA looks to be the right price to have a bet here.  I think he will be too fast for his rivals over 1000m, his perfect distance.

Numbers: 3 – 5 – 4 – 7


Suggested Bet: WIN 3 GRACIDA  $1.9 bet now



Race 3


Looks a suitable race for the recent trainer/jockey pairing of Zoe White& Tony Gollan to get a winner with 2 CLASSAY. Her first 2 runs this preparation has been good,


Numbers:  2 – 8 – 6 – 3


Bet: WIN 2 CLASSAY  $1.9 bet now



Race 4


4 CORNFORTH started favorite fist up off the back of a good trial. Strips fitter here second up and should be on speed and hard to beat.  3 CAN DO CAMPBELL for Ben Currie here first up gets J Lloyd and a good ally should improve. 6 GALLANT SAGA & 9 LORD ARCHER should be respected and watch market.

Numbers: 4 – 6 – 3 – 9


Suggested Bet:       4 Cornforth is short enough  $1.95 bet now

Taking a Box Exacta 3-4-6-9 also



Race 5


Both 7 CHE BELLA VITA & 12 HI LIZZY have trialed well for this, and are the 2 hardest to beat as the betting suggests. 6 WICKED EXPRESS is first up and has been competitive in some solid form races previously.

Numbers:  7 – 12 – 6 – 3


Suggested Bet: Work around 7 CHE BELLA VITA & 12 HI LIZZY  $2.8 bet now



Race 6


1 NICONNI LEGGERA can find the front here with an aggressive ride, and be hard to beat.  3 MY GIRL HAYLEY can be right on the leaders back, and be hardest to beat.

Numbers: 1 – 3 – 2 – 9


Suggested Bet: 1 NICONNI LEGGERA WIN  $3.1 bet now



Race 7


8 DAMN FINE looks ready for a better performance here, coming into this off 2 ok runs this preparation.  Hit the line good first up, before tracking wide and tiring late last time.  He won third up last prep, then chased home Nicconova & Dreams Aplenty in his 2 preceding runs. A return to that form last prep will see him very competitive here, and his last 2 runs suggest he isn’t far away from that form.

Numbers: 8 – 1 – 4 – 6


Suggested Bet: Each Way 8 DAMN FINE  $16 bet now



Race 8


Some sort of run by 5 DIA DE REYES the last start, and there is no way I’m jumping off here. He missed the start hopelessly, before getting to the outside, and was stopped in his tracks when making ground at the 200m. With even luck, he will be extremely hard to beat here. 6 PILLARA is the hardest to beat.

Numbers: 5 – 6 – 7 – 4


Suggested Bet: WIN 5 DIA DE REYES  $5 bet now
