BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.3 KINGDOM OF LOGRES ($1.95 with Bet Right)
Annabel Neasham saddles-up KINGDOM OF LOGRES here who is third-up and looks ready to strike. Last start, the British-bred colt found the podium when second-up, finishing third in a BM64 Hcp over 2000m at Kembla Grange. Sent out a $3 favourite, he settled fourth (on the fence) to the turn. Shaun Guymer then eased him off the fence and when he asked him for more, he sandwiched between runners and hampered at the 200m mark. He got going again and hit the line well to grab the minor prize. Jett Stanley has the reins today and should be looking to cross early and settle better than mid-field. He won third-up last preparation and fitter for two runs back, he looks the one to beat here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.3 SHIFFRIN ($3.10 with Ladbrokes)
Warwick Farm visitor SHIFFRIN sees the Newcastle (Beaumont) track for the first time today and looks well placed to make it a winning one. Last start, the Supido filly was second-up when she turned things around and broke through for her maiden win in a 1200m contest at Bathurst. Unwanted in the market ($12), she missed the jump by a length (drawn the outside gate) and settled second last. With Grant Buckley aboard, he asked the filly for a final effort on straightening and she obliged, storming home to grab victory on the line. She’s been penalised for her big effort as she carries more weight today, but if she reproduces something similar here, she will take beating.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 8: No.4 ROYAL CHARGE ($8 with Palmerbet)
Scone galloper ROYAL CHARGE makes his Beaumont track debut today and second-up, looks in the mix at odds here. Last start, the Charge Forward gelding was first-up off a 21-week break when finishing a handy fourth in a BM64 Hcp over 1250m on Newcastle’s main track. He drew the car park that day (11 of 11) and was trapped wide the entire trip. Never a winning chance, he did well to finish as close as he did after covering more ground than the early explorers. Aaron Bullock has had success with him previously and returns for today’s assignment. Far better drawn in gate three, he maps to be parked right behind the pace and with a clear run to the line, he will looks a genuine winning chance in this contest.
