R4 #6 Bulala – #12 Plucky Star – Race has changed complexion with the scratching of the favourite Nictock. Bulala is a promising horse that won very well first up from a decent break away – can be improved from that fitness wise and looks up to a race of this nature. Plucky Star ran very well first up over an unsuitable trip – can be much fitter and suited up to this trip. Scared of Barricade – but not possible to back all three at their current prices.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 4.5 Units Bulala @ $5.5 with UNIBET – 1.5 Units Plucky Star @ $17 with Bet365
R8 #8 Metallic Crown – #13 Figtree – Looking for value once again here in an open race. Metallic Crown never looked comfortable last start and ran very well for mine – fitter again here and should be ready to peak from the soft gate. Figtree the value runner of the day – going much better than his form suggests – he can run a strong race here at big odds.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units Metallic Crown @ $18 with Sportsbet – 2 Units Win Figtree @ $41 with Bet365 / 2 Units Place Figtree @ $7 with Bet365
R9 #5 Pro Consul – #11 Minnesota – Another race of value hunting. Proconsul ran solidly first up over 1200m – drops back to the 1000m here and if you can run on he should be very strong late at big odds. Minnesota has had a jumpout since last seen – looks huge odds from the soft gate.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 1.5 Units Pro Consul @ Best of the Best – 2.5 Units Minnesota @ $16 with Bet365
R3 #2 Clifton County – #10 Speedway – Have been waiting for this bloke to surface off a very solid trial. Hostwin Meraki has already franked that trial form and he looked to be going half pace behind him. Can run a bold race here on debut. The main danger looks to be Speedway – trialled up very well recently – draws for the soft run and can be strong late.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 4 Units Win Clifton County @ $8 with Bet365 – 2 Units Speedway @ $5 with Bet365
R7 #8 Son Of A Fox – Hoping for the Wolfgram double – this bloke ran very well last start in a strong maiden. Finds a very soft race here and looks ideally placed to run very well here.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 4.5 Units Son Of A Fox @ $4.60 with Bet365
