BEST BET 🏆
Race 7: No.12 LOCH EAGLE ($6 with Palmerbet)
To the main event now and in a field of several chances, we are running with the Kris Lees-trained LOCH EAGLE who has found form at the right time and looks right in the mix today. Last start, the Lonhro gelding came off a big win at Newcastle, gaining entry to the Prov-Mid Championship Final which was his next challenge. That day, he was sent out a $6 chance in the 1400m event and with Dylan Gibbons aboard, ran a mighty race where he beat all but Spangler home, taking out second prize in the $500K event (which is a good formline coming into this contest). Fourth-up here, he should be rock-hard fit for this as Gibbons sticks with him today. He maps to settle near mid-field from gate ten and with clean air in front of him as they turn, he should prove hard to hold out in the run home.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 3: No.6 RASAY FACTOR ($5.50 with Palmerbet)
The Cody Morgan-trained RASAY FACTOR is in good touch this time in and this contest looks ideal for him as he shoots for back-to-back victories today. Last start, his consistency paid off as he recorded his third win (in nine career-starts), when he clobbered them in a BM58 Hcp over 1900m at Armidale. After settling well back at the start, he worked his way into the race and after reeling in the winner passing the 200m mark, he strolled away to win by more than two lengths on the line. Grant Buckley has the reins today and with four starts behind him this campaign, he should give us a bold sight.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 4: No.8 INNERVOICE ($7.50 with BlueBet)
Bridesmaid at her past two starts, Scone-based galloper INNERVOICE is third-up today and should be ready to win. Last start, the Poet’s Voice mare made it consecutive podium finishes when she beat all but one home (again) in a BM58 Hcp over 1280m at Muswellbrook. Drawn the car park that day (11 of 12), Winona Costin eased her back to the rear, then tracked wide on the turn. The five-year-old made up a ton of ground and arrived just a little late, beaten less than a length on the line. She has similar conditions to contend with here but has Aaron Bullock in the saddle for the first time today. With a little more luck at barrier rise, she can give this a real shake at odds.
