EXPECTED PATTERN – Good 4 today with a True rail position. Like most country tracks this time of year – they are fairly firm under foot and play pretty fast. Narromine is a nice track and whilst it is an advantage to be on speed – its not impossible to run on.
THE PLAN – Like one in Race 3. Looking to make it a winner and a banker for a multi. The reason for the multi is simply to get the favourite going for a result in R5 as well as the value selection. Really think they look clear two winning chances and hard to bet into them both and keep the staking within the boundaries.
Race 3 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R3 #8 Our Tickets ($3.00) – Dominant maiden winner two starts back when the blinkers went on – led all the way there. Back to the 1400m last time and just struggled to keep with the faster pace early – battled on strongly. The winner of that race has gone on for another strong win. Can roll forward from the wide gate today back up to the 1600m and hopefully find the front – extremely hard to run down from that position. Wanted to find Mount Taishan ($6.50) as the danger with the key rider change – he is very one paced and Jean will suit. Want it to get to $7 before betting though
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units Our Tickets @ $3.80 with Lux/TAB/Unibet or $3.70 with Bet365. Happy to take $3.40+. 2.5 Units in Multi with Happens Nomore
Race 5 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R5 #3 Happens Nomore ($2.50) – #13 Sweet Art ($9) – Like two runners here. Happens Nomore trialled up very well prior to debut effort at Scone – a little disappointing there on face value. Ridden more conservatively last time and not every chance behind all the way winner Duel Escape. Ran away from the rest of the field late and looks set to peak here. Clearly, the horse to beat. Sweet Art is the knockout runner. Four runs for Graham Brown were nothing to write home about – moved to the Janelle Shapter stable and should have won on debut at Quirindi. Forgive the next start failure. 75 days between runs she resumed over a very unsuitable 900m and dragged out of it at the start – not much luck in the run and ran home strongly for a well beaten but promising third. Now rises to 1300m – inside gate and can be right on the speed here – El-issa takes the ride and can run a very positive race here at odds.
SUGGESTED BETTING: Use Happens Nomore in Multi – 1.5 Units Win Sweet Art @ $19 with Bet365 / $18 with Sportsbet/Luxbet/Crownbet/WilliamHill/Topbetta (Happy to take $13+ or Best Tote/SP) – 2.5 Units Place @ $5 with Crownbet / $4.80 with Sportsbet (Happy to take $4+)
