BEST BET 🏆

Race 9:  No.15  OPAL RIDGE  ($2.65 with BoomBet)

The Scone-based galloper OPAL RIDGE is in good touch this time in and if she can overcome the wide gate here, she can give this a real shake. Last start, the Rubick filly came from back in the field to easily account for them in the Listed Luskin Start Stakes over 1300m on her home track. She ran her last 600m, 9.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up. She also recorded the fastest final 600m, 400m and 200m sectionals for the race. She may need a little luck from gate 12 here but has Tyler Schiller returning for this assignment and he has steered to victory twice previously from his three rides on the filly. With luck in running and clear passage to the line, she looks the testing material here.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 3:  No.8  ANTINO  ($3.10 with Ladbrokes)

The Tony Gollan-trained ANTINO has won seven of his eight starts to date and looks set to go on with it here. Last start, he made it four on-the-trot when he took out a Class 6 Hcp, here over 1400m. He ran the final 600m, 7 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here. He steps-up to Listed company here, his hardest assignment so far but has James Orman sticking with him who is the only one to sit in the saddle up to now. Drawn nicely in gate five, he maps to settle just behind the speed and surely just bad luck beats him in this contest.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 6:  No.8  SERPENTINE  ($13 with bet365)

The Waterhouse & Bott-trained SERPENTINE is third-up here and ticks all boxes needed to be considered a real threat an each-way odds in this contest. Last start, the Galileo gelding came off a first-up win when he came within a whisker of a back-to-back success, taking home second prize in the Group 3 Premier’s Cup, here over 2400m. He ran that out, 7.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, just behind No Compromise here who looks tested in this grade. He is already a winner when third-up and a track and distance winner as well. Tim Clark has done it all before and has the job again here and if gets to dictate the race front again, he will take catching.
