EXPECTED TRACK PATTERN
Rail +6M and currently a Soft 5 rating. Would be amazed if the track was any worse than this given the recent windy weather. Expecting a fair surface – but keeping a close eye on the pattern early.
THE DAY: Just looks a card full of traps and lack of overall value. Really looking to play the day ultra conservatively as very little confidence to be had.
Race 2 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R2 #1 Devolving – One of the more interesting runners on the program. First up last prep on a Heavy 9 she ran very well behind Sheikha before stepping straight to 1250m on Heavy again for a dominant win. Two short course trials in preparation for this (same as first prep) – but resumes over the 1250m on close enough to a good surface this time. I have little doubt she is the most promising horse in the race – just a slight concern over fitness levels, the rider and where he will get to in the run. Can see her rounding these up with even luck.
Suggested Betting – 1.5 Units Devolving @ $7 with Lux/TAB/UBET/Crown/WillHill – if not take $6.50 with Bet365.
Race 3 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R3 #4 Gold Standard – This Colt looks right on the up to me. Never really looked comfortable first up when in behind them and did a good job battling on well for second. Steps up to 1250m today and looks to get full control of the tempo. Will take plenty of running down.
Suggested Betting – Use in Multi with Devolving.
