BEST BET 🏆

Race 1:  No.3  SATNESS  ($3 with Palmerbet)

The locally-trained SATNESS has been a prolific placegetter of late but gets his chance here to bring up win number two today. Last start, the Sweynesse gelding was third-up when he beat all but one home in a Class 1 Hcp over 1500m at Hawkesbury. He ran a new personal best that day, covering the trip, less than half a length slower than benchmark and posted the fastest final 800m, 600m and 400m sectionals as well. Tommy Berry was aboard that day and is in the saddle again for this contest. His resume reads just one win from 16 starts but his latest efforts show he has strung together ten-straight podium finishes. The small field here will suit and the conditions today won’t bother him either (with four minor placings coming from six starts on heavy tracks, all of which came on this track). Well overdue for another win, he looks set to pounce today.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 8:  No.6  PHEARSON  ($5 with Palmerbet)

The Brad Widdup-trained PHEARSON is yet to miss a podium finish and third-up today looks ready make his track debut a winning one. Last start, the Exosphere gelding made easy work of his Maiden win on a Heavy 9 at Hawkesbury. With William Pike in the saddle, he clobbered his rivals on the wet track, crossing the line almost three lengths in front of them in the 1300m contest while recording the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the event. Pike makes the trip down south for the ride again and fitter for two runs this time in he looks set for another big effort in this company.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 2:  No.2  CREDIT CRUNCH  ($5.50 with Unibet)

The Matt Smith-trained CREDIT CRUNCH has won two of her past three starts and looks well placed here for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Real Impact mare was too good for them in a Class 3 Hcp over the mile at Goulburn. With Alysha Collett in the saddle, she was the widest runner swinging for home but still finished best to get the job done on a Soft 7 that day as she posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals. Collett sticks with her today and the conditions are right up her alley with all four career wins coming on wet tracks. Also a winner here previously, she looks the testing material today.
