BEST BET 🏆

Race 4:  No.4  RISING PACIFIC  ($3.50 with Ladbrokes)

The Tony Gollan-trained RISING PACIFIC is in top-shelf form this time in and looks every chance to bring up the hat-trick today. Last start, the Preferment gelding destroyed his opposition in a BM68 over the mile at Eagle Farm. With Damien Thornton aboard, he settled two pairs back on the fence and once he found clean air, he put paid to the 11-strong field and crossed the line 3.5 lengths clear of them in the end. He faces similar company here and has Thornton backing-up for the ride as well. At his peak here and yet to miss a podium finish in four starts this preparation, he looks the testing material.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 7:  No.7  ADDRIEL  ($4.80 with Bet Right)

Annabel Neasham saddles-up ADDRIEL here who is second-up and looks in the mix for victory in this contest. Last start, the Irish-sired gelding resumed off a lengthy 20-week absence and did well to finish third in a BM70 over 1200m at Eagle Farm. Damien Thornton had his first ride on the galloper that day and had him hitting the line well, just a lack of fitness prevented him finishing closer. He gets the gun-run from gate one and has Thornton sticking with him for this assignment. The tongue tie comes off for this and already a winner when second-up, he can the get the job done here.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 10:  No.13  OUTLAWED  ($5.80 with BoomBet)

The Robert Heathcote-trained OUTLAWED has been ever-consistent in securing a top-two finish in all six starts this time in and looks poised to keep that trend going here. Last start, the Foxwedge mare came off a BM75 win at Toowoomba when she took on similar company at Eagle Farm and did well to beat all but one home in a field of ten over 1200m. She jumped badly and gave them a start but finished strongly, beaten just half a length on the line. Three starts at the track and distance have resulted in three top-two finishes and with a trouble-free run here, she can take this contest out.
