BEST BET 🏆
Race 5: No.2 SHOPPING ESPRIT ($2.50 with Neds)
The Sean Anderson-trained SHOPPING ESPRIT loves racing here and in the small field, looks every chance of bouncing back today. Last start, the Belk Esprit gelding stepped-up sharply in grade when taking on city class company and finishing mid-field in a BM75 Hcp over 1800m at Eagle Farm. Not disgraced in the run, he still covered the trip, 4.1 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best last-start effort here by more than 9 lengths and a new personal best for him as well. Back to Provincial company today, he has Samantha Collett back on board who steered him to victory, here three starts back. He is already a two-time winner at Corbould Park and with a trouble-free run, he can get the job done for us today.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.2 BUON ACQUISTO ($3.70 with Palmerbet)
The Annabel Neasham-trained BUON ACQUISTO has his fourth race-start here and looks well placed for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Pins gelding made it third-time-lucky when breaking through in an Ipswich Maiden over 1350m. He ran his last 600m, 1 length slower than benchmark that day, still the best in this line-up. Brodie Loy sticks with him here where he gets the gun-run from gate one as he maps to settle on-speed. Rock-hard fit from those three outings, he will take beating in this contest today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 4: No.9 THAT’S MY OPINION ($14 with Palmerbet)
Third-up today, the Gold Coast galloper THAT’S MY OPINION looks well placed here to cast a vote for the major prize in this contest. Last start, the Spill The Beans gelding showed a marked improvement when he finished third in a 1200m Maiden on the Murwillumbah track. Tailed-off on the turn, he made up good ground to grab that podium finish. He gets the gun-run here from gate one, giving him a golden opportunity to finally shake the maiden monkey and take home the chocolates for his connections at odds today.
