Race 3:  No.8  CASH IS QUEEN  ($3 with Ladbrokes)

Local galloper, CASH IS QUEEN, is unbeaten this time in and returning to her home track today, looks a good chance to bring up the hat-trick here. Last start, the Astern filly came off an impressive Maiden win at Moruya when she franked that effort at Albury, claiming victory in a BM50 Hcp over 900m. From the outside gate (11), she crossed and took-up the front running and that was the end of the section. She led them all a merry dance and went on to claim victory by more than three lengths on the line. Winning form is good form and surely just bad luck beats her here.



Race 6:  No.6  TRUE VALENTINE  ($10 with bet365)

Warwick Farm galloper, TRUE VALENTINE, comes off a first-up win today and ticks enough boxes here to suggest she is a major player (at odds) for this event. Last start, the Toronado mare was fresh off a 20-week absence when she came from behind to claim victory in a Class 2 contest over 1100m at Bathurst. She ran her last 600m, 5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here by 4 lengths. She also recorded the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Today she has drawn the fence and maps to settle in the first half-dozen with cover. Grant Buckley sticks with her and a trouble-free run here should see her challenging strongly for the winner’s purse at (currently) each-way odds today.
