BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.3 RARE BEAUTY ($2.90 with TAB)
Kembla Grange galloper RARE BEAUTY is still a maiden but gets an opportunity here to record her first win in Class 1 company today. Last start, the Headwater filly was fresh off a 13-week spell when she beat all but one home in a Gosford Maiden over the 1000m sprint. She ran that out, 5 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best last-start effort here by more than 4 lengths. She also recorded the fastest final 800m and 600m sectionals for the race. Today, Olivia Chambers has the reins and after her 2kg claim, the filly comes in a kilo under the limit here. The stable believe she can leap maiden status here as half the field are resuming from breaks and others are a little out of touch at the moment. Fitter for that first-up effort, she looks in the mix at least.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 5: No.5 TIA KARETE ($10 with Palmerbet)
Canberra galloper TIA KARETE is no stranger here and although mixing his form of late, still lines up here a potential winning chance today. Last start, the Sweynesse gelding came off a win at Wagga when he took his place in the MTC Country Cup at Wagga and was unsighted, finishing down the track that day. He covered the 2000m trip, 2.4 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best in this field by 3 lengths. Quayde Krogh sticks with him and his resume shows he has steered the four-year-old to all four career wins to date. Already a track and distance winner, the gelding should find this contest a lot easier and looks a genuine player at odds here today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 7: No.10 HELL RIGHT ($15 with bet365)
The Gratz Vella-trained HELL RIGHT is yet to miss a podium finish here and in career-best form this preparation, looks a better than even chance of victory here at great odds. Last start, the Scissor Kick gelding chalked-up his sixth top-three finish in his last seven starts when he took home third prize in a Class 1 Hcp over 1000m at the Wagga track. Coming from well back on the turn, he ran his last 600m, 2.2 lengths quicker than benchmark (the best in this line-up) to finish just two lengths from victory that day. He also posted the fastest final 600m, 400m and 200m sectionals for the race. This looks no harder and he has finished in the money in all three starts here. Well drawn in gate four, he maps to settle near mid-field as Quayde Krogh returns for his fifth ride on the four-year-old, having found the podium with him in all four previous rides. With so many boxes ticked, he looks a tad overs here and is well worth an each-way ticket today.
