BEST BET 🏆  

Race 7 No. 2 FRANCE’S BOY ($4.70)

We’ll be sticking with FRANCE’S BOY who is fit and getting into his campaign. Strode to an early lead for Logan McNeil before denying Unlaced all the way up the straight over this track and distance. The pair met again over the same and this time France’s Boy had to be content in handing up to He’s Exclusive. They bowled along at a good tempo with France’s Boy gaining the upper hand late over the leader. Unlaced had peeled off their backs to put in a late lunge, getting there narrowly over France’s Boy. Since bowled along to come away from the fence, letting the winner get in back to his inside. Moscow Red finished too strong for France’s Boy with that pair leaving a clear margin back to the rest.

  

NEXT BEST 🥈  

Race 8 No. 5 MONTIGN – ($5.50)

Sophie Logan sticks as perennial #SABlackbookers runner MONTIGN as the pair look to continue their winning ways. This horse has been going through the grades aided by superb placement from Murray Bridge horseman Stuart Padman. He was first-up over the six-furlongs on his home track when last in work as Logan brought him with one-run to score. Logan since gave him a treat of a ride when resuming again from an eight-week break. Settled back of midfield the fence, the pair worked their way home between horses to score a last-gasp victory. The stakes keep rising as Montign hits the open grades in Adelaide, with winning form being good form.

 

BEST VALUE 💰  

Race 6 No. 8 OUTPOST – ($10)

We black booked OUTPOST off his first-up run last prep, and we’ve done the same this time too. He only had two more runs last time in before being tipped out which leads us believing that he may have had an issue. Drawn wide again over the 1050 metres meant that Teagan Voorham was never able to get in on him. She held Outpost together in the three wide line with the horse trucking too strongly into the race for his own good. They hit the front prior to straightening while staying out to the middle part of the track. Outpost was strong through the line, only to be pipped at the post by Howl who rattled home back towards the inside. We’d prefer to see Outpost on the outer track; however, we can play at the price as Teagan sticks from an ideal draw.
