BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.4 COUNTER MOVE ($1.95 with Ladbrokes)
The Nathan Doyle-trained COUNTER MOVE resumes off an eight-month absence today but a recent trial suggests she is ready to rock today. Last start, the Counterattack mare ended her first campaign by beating all but one home in a Hawkesbury Maiden over 1100m. In just her second race start, she tried to lead all the way but was grabbed on the line by a swooper, beaten a head that day. Back at work now, she trialled recently at Newcastle where she finished more than two lengths ahead of them in that gallop. Koby Jennings remains the only rider to be in charge as he sticks with her for today’s assignment. Ideally drawn in gate three, she maps to jump and run and dictating terms up front, she can lead from barrier to box here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.5 MOUNT WARNING ($2.70 with Neds)
Joe Pride saddles-up MOUNT WARNING here and sporting a major gear change looks the one to beat in this contest. Last start, the Astern filly was third-up when she beat all but one to the line in a BM64 Hcp over 1250m at Newcastle. She was another who tried to lead all the way and looked home for all money but was grabbed late by Deep Opinions who went on to win by more than two lengths that day. Pride drops her back in distance today which should suit her front-running style and he puts the blinkers on her for the first time as well. Sam Clipperton retains the ride as she gets the gun-run from gate one and with a trouble-free run, gets the chance to lead all the way today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 7: No.7 EDGE OF REWARD ($4.80 with bet365)
Another from the Nathan Doyle stable is EDGE OF REWARD who is second-up today and well placed to put in a big one here. Last start, the Reward For Effort gelding resumed off a 21-week spell and wasn’t disgraced when finishing mid-field in a Class 1 Hcp over 1200m. Drawing the carpark that day (12 of 12), Koby Jennings had work to do early and eventually crossed and had the gelding settled just behind the speed (which was genuine). Halfway home, he hit the front (briefly) but his condition gave out in the final stages as he was swamped by a handful near the line. Fitter for that run, he gets all the favours here jumping from gate one as Jennings sticks with him. A cushy run on the fence, just behind the pace, should see him as a major player at the business end of the contest today.
