Just the two plays at Scone today at odds. One a very small play on a horse that can improve sharply – but the confidence level is not high – highly speculative and purely odds based. The second play is a value runner that has good ability on his day and certainly has had things against his last couple of starts. Suited today and can improve significantly.
Race 5 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R5 #2 Base Camp – Base Camp has had the two runs back from a spell – on pace first up and just got a touch tired late. Blinkers off last time out and allowed to get well back – very slow tempo against there and a complete forgive performance. Winkers applied and should roll forward from the wide gate. Can improve significantly in what looks a very winnable race. Not 100% sold he is flying. But if he has needed the two runs back – he should be much closer to favourite here.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 1.5 Units Base Camp @ $8 with Bet365 (Happy to take $7 plus – Currently $8 with all but one corporate)
Race 7 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R7 #9 Western Saga – Very interesting horse. Absolutely no luck at last two start (replays are worth watching for those interested) – looks to have been set for this race but up to the 1300m. Robert Thompson would certainly have had the option to ride Don’t Doubt Her ($3.80 current favourite) but has stuck solid with this runner. Has a 1280m win over Happy Go Plucky last preparation – Happy would go around very short here (although he has gone to another level). Can certainly see this horse improving significantly today.
