BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.5 ALLEZ ZOU ($3.60 with Ladbrokes)
The Chris Munce-trained ALLEZ ZOU has been in good touch for his past few starts and looks a genuine chance at victory in this contest. Last start, the Zoustar gelding made the podium for the 10th time in his career when he took home third prize in a Class 4 Hcp, here over the 1000m sprint. Settling back in the field, he gave them a little too much start and had to settle for the minor money finish, beaten a length on the line. Robbie Dolan takes the reins for the first time today and the step-up to the 1300m again should suit him better. Already a three-time winner at the track, he leaves the machine from gate two (after early scratchings) and in the small field today, he can get the job done.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 7: No.2 SHOPPING WISE ($5.50 with Neds)
Gold Coast galloper SHOPPING WISE is three starts back from a change of stable and looks well placed here to give this contest a real shake. Last start, the Bel Esprit gelding finished just behind the placegetters in a BM62 on the synthetic track over 1540m at the Gold Coast. Fitter for those three runs, he steps-up to the 1800m today and is a winner at this track. Jai Williams rode him to victory two starts back and returns for today’s assignment. Ideally drawn in gate three, he maps to settle mid-field with cover and with a trouble-free run here, he can take home the chocolates for the Jay Bellamy stable today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 4: No.2 BIAS ($6.50 with bet365)
Michael Morrison saddles-up BIAS here who is three starts into this campaign and now looks ready to win. Last start, the Real Impact gelding improved even more from his first two runs back when he beat all but one to the line in a BM62 Hcp, here over 1400m. With Anthony Allen aboard, he tried to lead all the way but was grabbed by the odds-on favourite (Javaja) right on the post. Late money came for Bias as well that day ($26 into $17) and he is sure to attract plenty of followers in this contest. Allen sticks with him today where race tactics may change as he draws the outside gate. He still maps to go forward from barrier rise and has won over the mile previously. He was a winner fourth-up last preparation and looks great value in this line-up.
