BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.4 SHOW ME YOUR LOVE ($3.15 with BoomBet)
The Kris Lees-trained SHOW ME YOUR LOVE is third-up today and returns to try for back-to-back victories here. Last start, the So You Think mare took out a BM66 Hcp, here over the mile when second-up after a 17-week spell. She faces a similar challenge here with Andrew Gibbons returning for his second ride on the four-year-old. She gets the gun-run from gate one today but is still expected to settle near mid-field (with cover). She is one from one at the track and distance now and should strip even fitter for two runs back. A trouble-free run today puts her right in the firing line for victory here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 7: No.3 CEASEFIRE ($3.60 with Palmerbet)
The Paul Messara-trained CEASEFIRE has proven himself to be a real competitor around the country tracks and looks a serious threat in this contest. Last start, the Panzer Division gelding came off an unplaced effort at Warwick Farm when he rocked-up at Muswellbrook and beat all but one home in the Aberdeen Cup over 1280m. Having his fifth start this time in, he ranged alongside the race-leader inside the last 150m and fought like a tiger to the line, only to be denied by a whisker as they crossed. Aaron Bullock was aboard that day and his resume with the five-year-old now reads, six starts for three wins and two runner-up finishes. Bullock’s strike rate with the stable now shows a 43% success rate as he sticks with the gelding today. He maps to settle mid-field from his wide gate (13) where he is one from one at the track (winning his maiden here, on debut, by six lengths). His resume is strong enough to suggest he in this contest up to his eye teeth today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 8: No.4 ZOOM OUTCOME ($9.60 with BoomBet)
The Scone-based galloper, ZOOM OUTCOME, comes off two unplaced efforts in the city and returning to the country scene today, puts him back in the mix for a victory here. Last start, the five-year-old was fourth-up from a six-month break (and having his fourth start for Lyle Chandler) where he showed plenty of improvement, finishing fifth in a Class 3 Hwy Hcp at Rosehill over 1100m. He was beaten just two lengths in the 13-strong field that day, where the last 100m seemed to find him out. He returns to the country scene today and drops back to the 1000m trip where all three of his career wins have occurred. Ideally drawn in gate two today, he maps to settle in the first half dozen and with a trouble-free run here, he looks a real winning chance at odds.
