BEST BET 🏆
Race 6: No.8 OUR BOY OLLIE ($3.10 with Palmerbet)
Local galloper OUR BOY OLLIE is second-up here and ticks all the boxes that suggest he is the one to beat in this contest. Last start, the Outreach gelding was fresh off a 12-week spell where he drew the outside gate (12) at Muswellbrook and still proved too strong for them, winning a BM66 Hcp by half a length on the line. Chelsea Hillier had her second ride on the five-year-old that day, seeing her strike rate on him now read two for two. The barrier gods have been kind today, allotting him gate one for the event as Hillier sticks with him. This is a little harder but to compensate, he drops 5.5kgs for this which is a big advantage. Already a winner when second-up and unbeaten in two starts at the track and distance, his resume looks the strongest in this field.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 7: No.4 OUTBACK RINGER ($3.10 with Picklebet)
Cody Morgan saddles-up a couple more here as we run with OUTBACK RINGER who looks the most likely to succeed today. Last start, the Outreach gelding made it three-straight podium finishes when he beat all but one home in a Class 2 Hcp, here over 1000m. Taking over at the 200m mark, he looked home but was grabbed late by a swooper, beaten a neck on the line. He jumps from the outside gate today but in smallish field, he maps to cross and settle near mid-field with Braith Nock in the saddle. After the claim, he carries 2.5kgs less than last start and already a winner at the track and distance, he looks a genuine winning chance in this contest.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 3: No.5 LOSTMA COWBOY ($4.05 with BoomBet)
The Cody Morgan-trained LOSTMA COWBOY is second-up today and looks well placed here for back-to-back wins. Last start, the Wandjina gelding returned after six months in the paddock and made every post a winner as he took care of a Class 1 Hcp over 1100m at Armidale. Ridden a treat by Braith Nock, he took the turn seeing every runner and remaining near the fence, Nock weaved a passage through in the final 100m and grabbed them all on the line to score an impressive half-length win. Koby Jennings has the reins today (while Nock steers the stablemate, Exonumia, in the race) where the pair of them could end up fighting this one out. Fitter for that first-up win and already a winner at the track, we’ll run with him today.
