EXPECTED TRACK PATTERN
Rail goes to the 6.5M position and that is usually a strong advantage to those on the pace and towards the inside of the track. As a rule it is very hard to come wide and run on from back in the field. Saving ground should be the play of the day.
Race 1 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R1 #4 Siege of Quebec – The setup for this horse look too good to let him go around. Should be straight to the front on the fence here and strikes me as a horse that will continue to improve rapidly. Gets his own way here and should be a nightmare to run down. Early favourite Calculated looks tested by the inside draw – can do things wrong and cannot see him enjoying the box seat position – if he gets crossed early – he is in big trouble. Winners Lane is $126 here in the small field and must be thrown in all multiples.
Suggested Betting – 4 Units Siege of Quebec @ Best of the Best
Race 3 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R3 #3 Northern Conqueror – #6 Buddy Honest – Buddy Honest looks the likely leader here and coming back from the 1200m should give a huge sight. Northern Conqueror the horse that is flying but will need luck. Certainly getting the right price to compensate for this.
Suggested Betting – 2 Units Northern Conqueror @ $17 with Bet365 – 3 Units Buddy Honest @ $7.50 with UBET
Race 5 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R5 #2 Pick Me Up – #3 Clear The Beach – Clear The Beach too bad to be true last start – Norton Bit comes off here and the Lugging Bit back on. Back to 1200m and should get another nice trail on the speed. He should be peaking fitness wise now and is the one to beat. Pick Me Up has been flying over unsuitable distances – looks the the main contender. Scared of King Darci – just have to risk it with the apprentice staying aboard.
Suggested Betting – 4 Units Clear The Beach @ Best Of The Best – 2 Units Pick Me Up @ Best of the Best
Race 6 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R6 #2 Kudero – #7 Prince Famous – #9 Top Striker – Top Striker the main paly here – huge effort first up when wide and working in a fast run race and still tough to the line. Should slide across onto the speed comfortably here and clearly the horse to beat from that position. Sir Plush looks drawn awkwardly and hopefully gets stuck working in the run. Kudero and Prince Famous look value options that will get the right run in transit and can improve.
Suggested Betting – 1 Unit Kudero @ $13 with Bet365 – 1 Unit Prince Famous @ $14 with Bet365 – 4 Units Top Striker @ $7 with Bet365
Race 9 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R9 #2 Reneged – #8 Metallic Crown – Have to bet here with the favourite It’s So Obvious surely vulnerable jumping in distance and class second up. Reneged is hard fit and racing well – blinkers go on today and he should get an ideal run right behind the speed here. Metallic Crown has his D-Day – inconclusive so far this preparation and gets the run here to improve.
Suggested Betting – 4 Units Reneged @ $5 with UBET – 2 Units Metallic Crown @ $14 with Bet365
