BEST BET 🏆
Race 7: No.6 TOMBOY’S SPIRIT ($5.60 with BoomBet)
The Matt Kropp-trained TOMBOY’S SPIRIT is in sensational form this preparation and looks ideally placed here for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Spirit Of Boom mare came off a hat-trick of runner-up prizes when she dropped sharply in class and took out a Class 1 Hcp, here over 1500m. She crossed from her wide draw (gate 9) and took up the front running and never looked in trouble as she went on to win by a length on the line. She meets similar company today over the same trip and after the claim here, she carries less weight than her last-start win. A last-start track and distance winner, she looks the one to beat again.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3: No.6 CRAIGLEA LA VIE ($5.50 with Ladbrokes)
The Krystle Johnston-trained CRAIGLEA LA VIE is second-up here and sporting a gear change, looks a genuine winning chance in this contest. Last start, the Citiwyse filly was fresh off a five-month absence when she finished fifth in a Class 2 Hcp over 1000m at the Sunshine Coast. Beaten just two lengths on the line, she ran her last 600m, 1.5 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best last-start effort here. Regular rider, Hannah Richardson returns for today’s assignment and she boasts a strong record with the filly, having scored twice and grabbing two minor placings as well from her four rides to date. Already a winner when second-up, she will take beating here.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 6: No.2 GAMBOA ($4.05 with BoomBet)
Lindsay Hatch saddles-up GAMBOA here who is having just his third start for the stable and sporting a gear change today, looks right in this contest. Last start, the Not A Single Doubt gelding was second-up when he made it back-to-back runner-up finishes, taking home second prize in a BM70 over 1050m at Toowoomba. He ran his last 600m, 4.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. Hatch puts the blinkers back on him today and after the claim, he carries 2kgs less than last start (where he was beaten just half a length on the line). Already a winner when third-up, the five-year-old gets the gun-run from gate one today and looks a solid chance of making his first run at the Kilcoy track, a winning one.
