R2 #4 Cavelton ($5) – #7 Ready For Love ($2.50) – Argemone comes up a very short priced favourite here off a less than stellar first up run. Time for the race was solid – but the filly just never seemed to travel and was only average through the line. Can be fitter – but certainly needs to improve to justify the early quote. Ready For Love should have been winning on debut at Gosford – given a torrid run when clearly had the pace to control the race early – she is very likely to improve here. Cavelton looks the knockout – latest trial was very good – glad she is drawn out a touch as has missed the start a bit at the trials.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 4.5 Units Ready For Love @ $3.20 with Bet365 – Happy to take $2.90 or Best Tote/SP. 1.5 Units Cavelton – this is a hard horse to work out what price to take – would certainly be backing Ready For Love first and waiting to see what happened with Cavelton – if it got to $8+ I would be happy to take the fixed price – otherwise Best Tote/SP looks a solid option.
R4 #2 Ready For Danger ($2.30) – One of the more impressive debut performances I had seen in a long time when this bloke went around at Ballina in March – super strong through the line and every bit the potential city winner. Resumed 155 days later and was very easy in the betting – finished last and pulled up lame. Stepped up to the 1400m second up and I was waiting to see any positive betting move for him – it never came – but he was still a mile too good for his opposition after being dragged back early before circling and again strong through the line. I think he is just better than these again today. Martial Art and Malmoosa both have ability – but all things being equal – I think this horse will be too strong again. Will attach replays below of his first and last starts.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 5 Units Ready For Danger @ $3.6 with UBET/$3.40 with Bet365 – Happy to take $3 plus or Best Tote/SP
