Here are today’s Devonport Tips:

Glenn Stevenson and Anthony Darmanin look set to take out the opener with ROCK THE BOWLER (Best Odds Currently $2.30 with Ladbrokes). The former Victorian trained galloper has had two runs back, both as eye-catchers on this track. Found himself a mile back over the 1350 metres at his latest run on a day they didn’t break the clock. Tempo really suited those on the speed and Rock The Bowler made goof ground late to finish behind the place getters. Step up to the mile looks ideal, as does the small field. They may not rush along in front again and Rock The Bowler can pick them up with his impressive turn of foot.

Consistent mare EIGHT MARGARITAS (Best Odds Currently $4.20 with Palmerbet) can breakthrough with another kind run in transit. Jumped away evenly with them before being urged to find a forward position through the early stages. Queen Is The Word moved on by to establish a clear lead, with Eight Margaritas content to take the field up to her. As the leader gave them the slip on straightening, Eight Margaritas was still looking to balance herself up. Let down strongly after leader once she did find her feet to find the post come up too soon. Love the way ran through the line in what was a promising return.

The Wells crew are stepping LADY JOKER (Best Odds Currently $12 with TAB) out to the 1350 metres following another strong run-on performance here a fortnight ago. Nothing had won from the back all day and the on-pacer’s continued to get away with plenty. Taylor Johnstone balanced her mount from the top of the straight and went for home in with the whip in the left hand. The charge of the light brigade came after Julius who almost had the race shot to pieces out in front. They claimed the leader with Lady Joker only just missing to the horse back on her inside. She’s drawn to perhaps be a little more forward if comfortable and Johnson will be looking for galloping room from about the 500m.
