BEST BET 🏆

Race 1:  No.4  SKY OUT  ($1.70 with BlueBet)

The Maher & Eustace-trained SKY OUT has done some travelling this preparation but looks set now to start producing the goods. Last start, the former European galloper saw a Sydney track for the first time (after three starts in Victoria) and impressed when finishing third in a BM78 Hcp over 2400m on the Kensington track at Randwick. With Dylan Gibbons aboard, he took over inside the final 300m but seemed to peak over the last 100m and was edged out by two others, beaten less than half a length on the line. He drops back in distance today and after four starts now, should be at his peak for this event. Gibbons sticks with him here and coming off a city start and facing country class today, he looks the goods to take this out.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 8:  No.3  SOOBOOCO  ($3.25 with BoomBet)

Newcastle galloper SOOBOOCO makes his Gosford debut today and brings a glowing resume with him. Last start, the Sooboog gelding was fresh off a lengthy 22-week break when he clobbered his rivals in a Maiden Plate over 1100m at Wyong. Sent out a $1.50 raging favourite, he left no one guessing as he crossed the line almost two lengths ahead of them. That ended a string of four-straight bridesmaid finishes for the three-year-old. Jason Collett was aboard for that big win and remains in the saddle for today’s assignment. Drawn well in gate four, he maps to settle in the first half-dozen and a repeat of that last-start effort should see him in line for back-to-back wins today.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 7:  No.4  LOVERO  ($3.50 with Unibet)

The Rosehill-based galloper LOVERO is third-up today and in great touch since resuming, looks right in the mix for a shot at victory here. Last start, the Astern mare came off a runner-up finish in BM72 company at Canterbury when she lined-up in a Class 1 Hcp over the 1000m sprint at Kembla Grange. She had no luck in running that day, having to cross heels in an attempt to find some running room and ended up having to settle for third prize that day. Drawn in gate six today, she maps to settle better than mid-field, away from the fence which should see her secure the running room she needs. Already a winner at the track and distance, Jason Collett has the job today and with a clear run here, the four-year-old mare looks a real threat in this contest.
