THE PLAN: Just want to get a couple an early multi play out with the first at Canberra. Will update with a preview and market for Canterbury during the day. Port Macquarie looks an extremely skinny meeting.
R1 #4 Patron Black – This colt had all sorts of excuses on debut in a strong city race. Should have finished much closer there and all the better for the experience. Expected it to come up unbackable odds here – but with good backing for the topweight – Patron Black looks value.
SUGGESTED BETTING: Use in Multi
R1 #3 Marmaris – Missed the start and everything went pear shaped from there first up. If he jumps cleanly this evening – should be far closer to the speed and extremely hard to beat.
SUGGESTED BETTING: Use in Multi – $3.10 with Centrebet best around and expect it to be well backed.
R7 #1 Viceroy – #8 Tenorino – Viceroy looks extremely well placed in this line up – good tempo on and back to 1100m looks ideal – only needs even luck to be strong late. Tenorino is the wildcard – first up over 1100m – can sprint very well at big odds. Also wary of Ever So Natural – $21 looks big odds.
SUGGESTED BETTING: Use both in Multi – $6 Viceroy worth taking with Bet365 / $51 Tenorino with Centrebet and William Hill also worth taking.
Patron Black / Marmaris – 3.5U
Patron Black / Viceroy – 2U
Patron Black / Tenorino – 0.5U
