BEST BET 🏆
Race 7: No.5 LOST IN TRANSIT ($4.20 with Ladbrokes)
The ever-consistent LOST IN TRANSIT has managed to string nine-straight podium finishes together (with five of those, victories), and with all boxes ticked here as well, looks all but certain to make it 10-straight in this contest. Last start, the Spieth gelding came off a good win at Eagle Farm when he looked home again on the same track in a BM85 Hcp, but was grabbed later by a couple of swoopers, leaving him with third prize in the event. Back on home soil today, he dominates on this track, having won three and placed once from his five starts here. At his peak now after five starts this campaign, Ryan Maloney sticks with him and has already steered him to three of his five career victories. He is stepping up to the 1400m for the first time but from an ideal draw (gate 2), he maps to sit on the pace and will take running down here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 4: No.3 DEVASTATING ($9 with Bet Right)
Tony Gollan saddles-up three runners here as we run with DEVASTATING who looks the more likely to salute in this contest. Last start, the Exceed And Excel gelding stretched the run of consecutive podium finishes to six as he took home third prize in a BM68 Hcp over 1110m at Doomben. Here, he draws gate four and maps to be parked right behind the speed. Already a track and distance winner, Ryan Maloney returns to do the steering here and he boasts two wins and three minor placings from his seven rides on the five-year-old. All boxes look ticked here and he should prove hard to hold out.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 6: No.8 MASS DESTRUCTION ($13 with Picklebet)
Tony Gollan has no less than four lined-up here and we are running with MASS DESTRUCTION here who drops sharply in grade and looks well placed in a contest of this nature. Last start, the Spirit Of Boom gelding was no match for the Weetwood Hcp field, finishing down the track in the Listed event. He has trialled since and placed third in that hit-out. He has Angela Jones on board here for her second ride on the six-year-old and he will do little to no work early from gate two. His three starts at the Corbould Park track have resulted in two wins and a close-up second and fourth-up, he will be rock-hard fit and ready to dance. (Currently) at double-figure odds, he looks well worth an each-way ticket in this event.
