BEST BET 🏆
Race 8: No.7 JAMROCK ($4.25 with BoomBet)
The Annabel Neasham-trained JAMROCK is yet to miss a podium finish (from all races he has contested) and looks after a dominant maiden win, looks the one to beat here. *Two starts back, he lined-up at Canberra but failed to leave the gates, but has trialled twice since. Last start, the Pierro gelding destroyed his rivals in a Wyong maiden over the mile when he put more than four lengths on them over the line. He steps-up in grade here but appears to have resolved his barrier issues and has Adam Hyeronimus aboard for his first ride on the three-year-old. Ideally drawn in gate three, he maps to settle just off the pace and looks a strong chance for back-to-back victories here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 5: No.4 ANNOUNCING ($4.40 with Ladbrokes)
The John O’Shea-trained ANNOUNCING is second-up today and should give us a bold sight in this contest. Last start, the Press Statement filly was fresh off a 14-week spell and wasn’t disgraced when finishing fourth in a Class 1 Hcp over 1200m at Newcastle. She travelled back in the field and was three-wide without cover to the turn and did well to finish less than two lengths from the winner that day. Tyler Schiller has the reins today and should enjoy a trouble-free run from gate three. Fitter for that first-up run, She can give this contest a real fright.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 6: No.3 BOOMSONG ($4.85 with BoomBet)
In a very open affair here, we are running with local galloper BOOMSONG who resumes today boasting a strong fresh record. Last campaign, the Your Song gelding had five starts where he found the podium on two occasions. He final run for that preparation saw him finish mid-field as he stepped-up to BM72 company for the first time and didn’t look comfortable in the run. He was spelled and moved from the Mark Newnham stable and is now with local trainer Stephen O’Halloran where he has trialled once (on this track) two weeks ago and won that with Chad Lever aboard. His only victory came over today’s trip and looks ideally drawn in gate four for this contest. Lever sticks with him after that trial win and yet to miss a top-three finish in three previous first-up runs, he looks more than capable of figuring here.
