BEST BET 🏆
Race 4: No.3 SUPIDOMAN ($5 with Ladbrokes)
The Stephen Lee-trained SUPIDOMAN has finished on the podium at his two starts this time in and third-up today looks set to finish there again. Last start, the Supido gelding ran home well (when second-up) to grab third prize against a field of 12 in a Class 1 Hcp over 1006m at Grafton. This looks no harder and Les Tilley remains aboard for this assignment. He has found the podium in his past four races, all of which were over the 1000m trip. He has proven to be a consistent galloper and fitter for two runs back, he looks well placed here to fight this one out.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.8 BAGLIONI ($7 with Neds)
This could turn out to be a real family affair here as local trainer, Brett Bellamy, saddles-up BAGLIONI who looks a genuine winning chance at the weights today. Two starts back, the Cluster gelding had his first run for his new stable and on his new home track and finished too good for them in a BM66 Hcp over the 1300m trip. Then last start, he stepped-up to city class competition and had no luck at all when beating all but one home in a BM65 at Eagle Farm over the longer 1500m trip. Bellamy’s daughter (Courtney) was aboard for both those events and has the job again today. She claims 2kgs here, bringing the five-year-old’s weight down to 53kgs, which is 2kgs under the limit. He is in great touch after two top shelf efforts and is more than capable of upsetting this field and taking home the cup.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 5: No.6 AHEADOFHISTIME ($16 with Picklebet)
One for the value-minded punters here is AHEADOFHISTIME who is second-up today and ticks enough boxes to rate a strong each-way chance in this contest. Last start, the Deep Field gelding didn’t exactly set the world on fire when he finished mid-field in the John Carlton Quality Hcp over 1190m at Grafton. Clearly in need of the run, he finished more than three lengths from the winner but did jump from the carpark in gate 14 (of 14) where he settled last and had it all to do from there on fresh legs. The situation is totally different here and he is drawn far better in gate three where he does no early work, settling near mid-field with cover. Ash Morgan takes the reins today and already a winner when second-up and a two-time winner at the track and distance, he looks well worth an each-way ticket here.
