THE PLAN: Firm and fast surface at Hawkesbury today – Good 3 and hot temperatures forecast. Rail in the True position usually plays off the inside in the straight. Hot weather and firm track should nullify this a touch – but still, prefer to be 4-5 off the inside in the straight.
R1 #5 Vigorish – Very well placed in this small field to outsprint these
SUGGESTED BETTING: 5 Units @ $3.9 with Sportsbet – $3.80 with TAB – Happy to take $3.50+
R3 #8 Tarabai – Have really liked the trials of this debut runner – no money for it yet is interesting and the track certainly looks on fire there from watching the first. This horse does have pace though and should be there to expose the favourite if there are any chinks in its armour.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 2 Units Tarabai @ $4 witth UBET – Happy to take $3.70+
R4 #3 Avago – #7 Bell Serenade – #10 Missile Miss – Keen to bet around this favourite and think three runners represent enough value to bet here.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 1 Unit Avago Boy @ $19 with various – Happy to take this or Best Tote/SP / 2 Units Belle Serenade @ Best Tote/SP / 2 Units Missile Miss @ $15 with UBET/TAB or Best Tote/SP
