EXPECTED PATTERN: Rail back to the true position today and that usually means on pace, preferably on the rails in running. Hard to come wide and win before the turn. Setting up with this in mind.
THE PLAN: As loathe as I am to fall into a couple of short-priced runners – they truly look the only solid betting options on the program. Both tick all the necessary boxes and look extremely hard to beat.
R5 #4 Stonebrook – Huge opinion of this horse and think he finds the right race today to continue his progression. Strong winner on debut – put away quickly. Strong trials leading into the first up win which can really only be treated as another trial. Hoping he hold the front early here and from that position can dictate affairs and make it a true test from the 600m. Very hard to beat.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units Stonebrook @ $3.40 with Centrebet + Multi
R8 #5 Slow Burn – I thought we might get decent odds about her from the outside draw – hopefully she will be easy late in betting. Couldn’t have been more impressive in recent trials – she has returned a much stronger type and just looks better than these on her way to higher grade races – only bad luck beats her for mine.
SUGGESTED BETTING: Use in Multi
Stonebrook ($3.40 with Centrebet/$3.20 with Bet365 – or Top Fluctuation) / Slow Burn (Top Fluctuation) – 4 Units
