ANCHOR BET ⚓
Race 1: No.5 FRILLED ($1.75 with Ladbrokes)
The Matt Smith-trained FRILLED resumes off an 18-week break today and unbeaten to date, she looks the best of the day. The Star Witness mare had just two starts in first preparation, winning both of them in a canter. Her last effort saw her advance from a Nowra Maiden to a Class 1 victory, here over 1000m. That day, she led from barrier to box, crossing the line two lengths ahead of them. She returned to work four weeks ago where she won a Randwick barrier trial by almost six lengths with Kerrin McEvoy aboard. First-up today, she gets the gun-run from gate one and has McEvoy glued to the saddle for this assignment. She is (currently) a white-hot favourite with the bagmen and should be considered as an ‘anchor’ for all your multiples today.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 7: No.2 SAWREY ($6 with Neds)
Local galloper, SAWREY, resumes off a lengthy 37-week absence but is very capable of taking out this contest today. Last start, the Myboycharlie gelding had his first start for new trainer Ross McConville where he came off a 17-week break and did well to beat all but one home in city-class company in a BM64 Hcp over 1200m at Randwick back in December last year. Since returning to work, he has finished second in two trials on this track with Shaun Guymer aboard for both runs. He has placed twice from three first-up appearances previously and finished on the podium in three of his four starts at the track. If he can cross and find cover from gate nine today, he can mount a challenge in the run home and be there when it counts.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 3: No.6 SNOWMAN ($5 with Palmerbet)
The Chris Waller-trained SNOWMAN has come back in great touch and third-up today looks a genuine threat to this field. Last start, the Snitzel colt came off a first-up maiden win (over 1400m) when he fought on strongly to finish third in a Class 1 Hcp over the longer 1600m journey. Both races were run on this track. He is meeting similar company today and drops back a little in distance as well. Rock-hard fit after two those two starts, he draws nicely in gate five and is expected to lead them from barrier rise. Tyler Schiller is the pilot today and already a winner here, he will catching in this contest.
