BEST BET 🏆
Race 7: No.5 KADALL ($2.35 with BoomBet)
The Team Snowden-trained KADALL resumes off an 18-week spell today and should take beating here. Last start, the Capitalist gelding ended a two-start campaign by winning a Kembla Grange Maiden over 1400m. He hit the paddock after that but has trialled twice since returning to work, winning his last effort at Rosehill with Kerrin McEvoy on his back that day. He gets all the favours from gate one today and after Jett Stanley’s (2kg) claim, carries just 55.5kgs for this assignment. With a trouble-free run today, he looks the goods on fresh legs here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 4: No.2 BORDER CONTROL ($3.60 with Ladbrokes)
Local galloper, BORDER CONTROL, is second-up today and ticks enough boxes here to suggest he will take beating in this contest. Last start, the Brazen Beau gelding was fresh off a lengthy 23-week absence when he comfortably took care of a BM68 Hcp, here over 1000m will Dylan Gibbons on board for the first time. He settled mid-field that day and just finished too well for the 10-strong field, putting 1.5 lengths on them over the line. That made it two from two on his home track. He maps to settle mid-field again from gate six as Gibbons remains in the saddle for this assignment. He looks a much happier horse since returning from Hong Kong last year and already a winner when second-up, he looks right in the mix here today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 2: No.2 CHAMPERS GIRL ($11 with Bet Right)
The Bjorn Baker-trained CHAMPERS GIRL is in great touch since resuming and looks a big chance to upset the more fancied runners here. Last start, the American Pharoah filly came off a solid first-up win in a Class 1 at Queanbeyan when she returned to the same track and after a bad start, recovered well enough to grab third prize in a BM66 Hcp over the 1000m sprint. Now fitter for those two runs back, the Warwick Farm-based galloper steps-up to in trip here and has Josh Parr as the pilot for the first time. She has two wins from her four career-starts and is more than capable of taking this out at odds today.
