BEST BET 🏆
Race 5: No.8 KUREDER ($3.10 with Neds)
The Chris Waller-trained KUREDER found his mojo last start and looks all set to go on with it today. Fourth-up, the Ocean Park gelding was at his peak when he brought up career win number two by taking out a Class 2 Hcp over 2060m at Doomben with Damien Thornton in the saddle. This looks no harder as Thornton sticks with him for this assignment. He draws to do no early work from gate four and a trouble-free run today can see him celebrate his first run at the track with a win in this company.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.10 PIANIST ($4.50 with Ladbrokes)
Gold Coast galloper, PIANIST, is in good touch this time in and looks well placed here to bring up another top-three finish today. Last start, the Smart Missile mare bounced back from a disappointing effort at the Sunshine Coast when she beat all but one home in a BM68, here over the 800m sprint. Sent out a $21 chance, she jumped from gate nine (of 11) and settled near last on the fence. Sticking to the inside, she railed like a greyhound and finished strongly to arrive in time for the silver medal. Martin Harley has the job today and from an ideal draw in gate four, she can go one better in this contest.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 1: No.8 SOO SWEET ($5.50 with BlueBet)
Third-up today, the Team Edmonds-trained SOO SWEET is in great touch since returning to the track and will take beating in this contest. Last start, the Sooboog filly broke through for her maiden win after finishing on the podium in all previous attempts. Stepping up in grade today, Martin Harley has the reins for the first time as the filly drops 3kgs for this event. She has the outside gate (8) which shouldn’t be too big a disadvantage in the small field. Already placed at the track, a trouble-free run today can see the three-year-old fighting out the finish.
