BEST BET 🏆
Race 5: No.2 GRINZINGER KNIGHT ($2.25 with TAB)
The Toowoomba-based GRINZINGER KNIGHT is in good touch this time in and this contest looks an ideal chance for him to bring up win number two today. Last start, the I Am Invincible gelding was third-up when he beat all but one home in a BM0-58 over 1700m at the Gold Coast. He ran that out, 3.4 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best in this field by more than 4 lengths. Today, Isabella Rabjones is re-united with the four-year-old after steering him to his maiden win four starts back. This is her only ride today so she will (no doubt) be out to make every post a winner on him. Already a winner over 2000m and at his peak now, he looks a real chance at making his debut run at the track a winning one.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3: No.9 LADY TULESSA ($6.50 with bet365)
Grafton galloper LADY TULESSA sees the Lismore track for the first time today and in the small field, looks a big chance of turning her form around today. Last start, nothing went her way and while she finished sixth, she was beaten less than a length on the line. Drawn the outside gate (13) that day, she was understandably trapped very wide (without cover) and did well to finish as close as she did in the BM58 Hcp on her home track. She ran her last 600m, 3.7 lengths slower than benchmark, still more than 3 lengths better than her rivals today. She won’t be trapped wide here as she gets the gun-run from gate one and maps to be just off the pace (with cover today). With a new rider here (Anthony Allen), she can get the job done and break the drought.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 7: No.9 LOOK A’LIKE ($6.50 with Palmerbet)
Murwillumbah galloper LOOK A’LIKE is in career-best form this preparation and looks a super chance of making it third time lucky at the Lismore track today. Last start, the Storm Shadow gelding came off a long-awaited’ maiden win when he stepped-up to a BM58 Hcp and beat all but one home that day in the 1100m event. He ran that out, 1.2 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up and posted the fastest final 200m sectional as well. Tegan Harrison was aboard that day and has the reins again here. Ideally drawn in gate four, he maps to settle in the first half-dozen and rock-hard fit after three runs back, he looks a winning chance at odds today.
