BEST BET 🏆
Race 1 No. 1 GLASGOW GIRL – ($5.50)
They ran a good time from the front as GLASGOW GIRL put herself onto the speed from her wide gate second-up. The on-pace runners did hold the advantage throughout the day; however, Glasgow Girl often improves into the prep. Victoria Corva followed the leader as Glasgow Girl chased down Mordor, only to be a sitting shot for No Dice. We’ve read a couple of races wrong lately, and we’re relying on getting the map right on Saturday. A case of pace without pressure can see Glasgow Girl turn the tables over Leica Jaguar and Ultimate Command. She met them while a little soft on resumption over this track and trip and will strip fitter on Saturday.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 5 No. 5 SNOWDOME – ($3)
We’ve pinched a couple of cheap wins with SNOWDOME as Chris Parnham has rated him superbly back to 1000 metres. Snowdome turned in a soft trial win prior to his resumption over 1200 metres. That soft hit out may have proved part of his undoing there, as was missing the kick. Has since jumped sharply with Parnham steading the ship to have Snowdome leading under controlled tempos his past two. Pressure goes up a notch each time he steps up in grade, yet Snowdome has drawn to run well again.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 8 No. 8 WILEY GIRL – ($8)
We backed Krysanova to score on debut and the run of the second horse WILEY GIRL impressed us also. Krysanova led with no real pressure and was able to get Wiley Girl off the bit prior to straightening. Wiley Girl built into her stride up the straight while finding the winner too sharp over the 1000 metres. Improved considerably at her next run when following the speed out to 1200 metres. They went fast and Wiley Girl was able to build into the race far more comfortably. She shouldered into the clear on straightening to explode off good tempo and set a fast time to the day. We backed her in the Karrakatta which proved a difficult race to watch. We’ll put a line through that run as regular stable rider Patrick Carbery comes back into the saddle.
