BEST BET 🏆
Race 5: No.4 BRIEFLY ($3.90 with Neds)
Local galloper BRIEFLY is in great touch this time in and looks good here for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Testa Rossa mare proved too good for a Class 2 Hcp, here over 1200m. She ran the trip out, 3.8 lengths slower than benchmark, the best in this field by 2 lengths. She also recorded the fastest final 200m sectional for the race. Grant Buckley has ridden the mare to all three career victories to date and is with her again today. Nicely drawn in gate six, she maps to settle just behind the pace and will have first crack at the leaders in the run home. All five podium finishes have come on the Tamworth track and being a last-start track and distance winner, she looks the testing material again.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.1 TORO TORO ($5.50 with Unibet)
The Stephen Jones-trained TORO TORO is three starts into this campaign and with two top-three finishes against his name so far, he can go on with it here today. Last start, the Time For War gelding bounced back from a good showing at Randwick (although unplaced) when he beat all but one to the line in a BM78 Hcp over 900m at Newcastle. Beaten just a length on the line that day, he ran his last 600m in even time, second-best here to Casino Lord (who is facing a stiff rise in class today). The six-year-old won fourth-up last preparation and has the experienced Aaron Bullock in the saddle here. He maps to settle near mid-field today and if he finds clean air on straightening, he should prove hard to hold out.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 2: No.5 DUBLINER BOY ($7 with Palmerbet)
The locally-trained DUBLINER BOY is third-up today and looks well placed at home to break through for his maiden win. Last start, the Smart Missile galloper continued on his path of improvement when he beat all but one home, here in a 1200m Maiden Hcp. In a slowly run affair, he covered the trip, 12.5 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best last-start effort in this field. Mitchell Bell was aboard that day and keeps control in this contest. The stable have fitted a tongue tie for the first time and fitter for two runs back, a trouble-free run here should see him fight out the finish, at good odds today.
