THE PLAN: Gilgandra today – tight circuit – strong advantage to be up on speed and really not looking for anything but on pace – preferably fence positioned runners. Track will be fast and very tough to run on from back in the field.
R3 #5 Ayeteem – #8 La Petite Belle – We were with Ayeteem first up at Taree – had to be driven hard to hold the front there and they set up a strong tempo. Did get tired late – but parading he certainly looked like he would improve with the run – finds a much weaker race here – drawn to lead and if he can hold the front should give a huge sight around here. La Petite Belle is the query runner – has trialled up nicely – aggressive jockey aboard and should be in the firing line thorughout. Throwing Lord Mij and Grand Peril in multiples at odds.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 3 Units Ayeteem @ $4 with Bet365 – Happy to take $3.80+ / 1.5 Units La Petite Belle @ $6 with Bet365 or Best Tote/SP
R7 #1 Lancelot – #6 Try ‘n’ Run A Muck – Just keep coming back to Try ‘n’ Run A Muck here – looks to stalk the lead and be first challenger turning for home. Main dangers look to give too big a start and should also strip fitter for the first run in a month last time out at Inverell. Lancelot is the query runner with the blinkers applied – looks set for this and certainly has the quality to be too strong here if in the mood.
SUGGESTED BETTING: Use in Multi
Ayeteem / Lancelot – 0.5 Unit
Ayeteem / Try ‘n’ Run A Muck – 1 Unit
