THE PLAN: Coffs Harbour today and not my favourite race track. Did look to be a couple of decent bets – but both have shortened. Looks like another day off unfortunately.
R2 – Favourite in Rustic Pearl will look to cross these early and looks extremely hard to beat. Price to match, unfortunately.
R6 – Was keen to be with Howick here – won first up over the 1000m – just straight to 1300m second up and chased valiantly – this she peaks here and back to 1200m ideal. Slight query where she gets to in the run – but any luck at all and no leader/fence mad bias – she should be finishing over these. Was hoping for $4 plus to compensate for any possible bias and the awkward draw – but she has come into around $3 now. Could certainly entertain backing if gets out towards the $4+ mark again late.
R7 – D Day for Uthred here – out to 1300m looks ideal – should get on speed cheaply and this is a VERY weak lineup. There is a chance the horse is not at his best. But a huge class drop today will certainly give him his best chance this preparation to break through. Another that was $4 this morning and has trimmed into $3.20. Again – if $4 approximately becomes available – could entertain having something on.
SUGGESTED BETTING: For those who still have fully active Bet365 accounts and want to have a small play. The treble is around $20 – if any of them blow out – could be a nice dividend for a small outlay.
