BEST BET 🏆
Race 6: No.1 ATISHU ($5.25 with Picklebet)
Chris Waller saddles-up a trio of runners here as we run with ATISHU as the most likely to succeed in this contest. Last start, the Savabeel mare was fresh off a 16-week spell (after failing to finish in the Doomben Cup) when she had no luck at all, finishing fifth in the Group 2 Sheraco Stakes, here over 1200m. While never a real chance at the trip on fresh legs, she targeted a rails-run passing the 200m mark, but it closed on her, forcing her to stop racing and that put paid to her chances. She got going again and did well to finish less than two lengths from the winner. She is a two-time winner when second-up and although she is yet to win here, she boasts four wins from six starts over the 1400m and gets her chance here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3: No.8 MARQUESS ($3.80 with Ladbrokes)
The James Cummings-trained MARQUESS is in top-shelf form this preparation and looks set to go on with it in this contest. Last start, the Tavistock gelding was on a hat-trick when he beat all but one home in a BM78, here over 1800m. He box-seated to the turn and chased home Howgoodareyou, finishing just half a length behind her on the line. They clash again here where Marquess meets her 2.5kgs better at the weights and he fares much better at the gates as well. He should be at his peak after three runs back and with Zac Lloyd on board, the Godolphin galloper gets his chance to turn the tables here.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 5: No.12 LITTLE MIX ($21 with BoomBet)
Annabel Neasham saddles-up LITTLE MIX here who is having her first crack at black-type glory and could surprise at odds. Last start, the Mahisara mare was second-up and made it two-straight podium finishes when she took home third prize in a BM78, here over the 2000m trip. Fitter for two runs back, the five-year-old is up in class here but comes in on the limit, carrying less weight than her last-start effort. Already a winner when third-up, the mare has missed just one top-three finish in 12 career starts and looks every chance to keep that record intact here. Scratched from Wednesday’s Warwick Farm meeting for this, she is well worth an each-way ticket.
