BEST BET 🏆

Race 6:  No.2  BRINGYATICKET

The Darby Amos-trained BRINGYATICKET is high-flying this time in and looks a serious contender in this contest. Last start, the Sebring Sun gelding brought up win number three for this preparation when he rattled home to grab victory in a BM55, here over 1200m. Brisbane jockey, Ryan Wiggins is legged aboard for the first time here and will take full advantage of gate one today. The three-year-old maps to be box-seating on settling and with a clear run to the line, Wiggins will do the rest. Already a winner at the track and unbeaten over the trip, he looks set to frank that last-start effort and go back-to-back here.

 

NEXT BEST 🥈

Race 3:  No.2  INVINCIBLE BAY

Atherton trainer, Roy Chillemi saddles-up INVINCIBLE BAY here who is in top-shelf form of late and looks every chance of taking out this contest today. Last start, the I Am Invincible gelding made it five-straight podium finishes when he collected third prize in a BM65 over 1400m on a Heavy 8 at Cairns. His 60kgs on the wet track took its toll that day. Meeting similar company here, he gets some weight relief with new rider Tessa Townsend claiming a 2kg allowance today. He gets the gun-run from gate one here where he maps to be parked on the fence, just behind the speed. With a clear crack at them in the run home, he looks hard to hold out today.

 

BEST VALUE 💰 

Race 7:  No.7  BRADSHAW

The Headley Group have bought themselves a real promising type here with the Fred Wieland-trained BRADSHAW lining-up here boasting three top-two finishes from as many starts and looking good to make it four today. Last start, the Stratum Star mare made it third time lucky as she broke through for her first win and did it in style. Settling second-last, she spotted the leaders eight lengths and took the turn via the cape. But in the run home, she finished like a train and carrying 59.5kgs, went on to win by more than a length on the line. Jason Taylor produced a copybook ride that day and remains the pilot for this assignment. She does no early work here jumping from gate one where she maps to settle mid-field today. If she can re-produce a whirlwind finish like that Cairns effort, dropping 2kgs here, she will prove very hard to hold out.
