BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.6 DYLAN’S LAD ($2.50 with Ladbrokes)
Annabel Neasham saddles-up DYLAN’S LAD here who is in great touch this preparation and looks set to make his Orange debut a winning one. Last start, the Shalaa gelding came off his maiden win at Mudgee when he beat all but on home in a BM58 Hcp over 1150m at Newcastle. With Heavelon Van Der Hoven on board, he settled too far back and left himself too big a task to win the race, but was impressive with his efforts in the run home to grab second prize that day. He’ll do very little early work here from gate two as he maps to settle mid-field with cover. The extra trip looks ideal today and with Van Der Hoven as the pilot again, he can only strip fitter from those three runs back and will take beating here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 1: No.1 RAIDING ($2.70 with bet365)
Dubbo galloper, RAIDING, sees the Orange track for the first time today and in career-best form, he looks set to go on with it here. Last start, the Rebel Raider mare made it two wins from her past three starts when she clobbered her rivals in a BM58 Hcp over 2200m on her home track. With Braith Nock in charge and carrying 61kgs, she gave nothing else a chance, crossing the line almost three lengths clear of the 10-strong field. The four-year-old steps-up in grade today but drops in weight and has Nock sticking with her for this assignment. She maps to settle mid-field from gate six and should prove hard to hold out here.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 7: No.9 INZAGHI ($6.10 with BoomBet)
The Dubbo-based galloper, INZAGHI, has found her mojo now and looks well placed here to bring up the hat-trick today. Last start, the Sizzling mare was sent out favourite in the Coonamble Picnic Championship and carrying 63kgs, didn’t disappoint her supporters when she destroyed her rivals in the 1400m contest. From gate six, she crossed to lead them on settling and in the run home, gave them the slip and went on to cross the line almost three lengths ahead of them. Clay Gallagher has the reins today and with a trouble-free run, the seven-year-old can make it three-straight.
