The Ron Quinton-trained HIBISCUS LADY (best odds $7.50 with Bet365) finished behind the placegetters at Warwick Farm but looks well placed here to turn that around today. Last start, the Foxwedge mare clashed with today’s race favourite Seleque and finished just over a length behind Chris Waller’s filly in fourth place in a BM72 over 1100m on a heavy track. She came from well back in the field that day, running her last 600m, 4.8 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. Her sectional times were all faster than Seleque that day as well. They meet again here on similar terms with Hibiscus Lady presumably fitter with three runs under her belt now. With Seleque drawn the outside gate, she will have to do more work to cross and find a sit and yet to win when second-up, this could prove to be the difference today. Louise Day sticks with the mare here and with the same weight in the saddle as last start, the five-year-old mare gets a golden opportunity here to turn that last start result around. Currently at great odds, she is worth an each-way ticket today.
Carrying top weight today, the Kris Lees-trained NO LAUGHING MATTER (best odds $4.80 with Sportsbet) lines up here shooting for back-to-back victories and looks a genuine chance of making it happen. Last start, the Exosphere filly left the gates under different riding tactics (to be ridden further forward) which paid dividends immediately. In BM64 company, she led from barrier to box, carrying 61kgs over the 1200m journey on a Heavy 9 that day. She ran the trip, 1.2 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up, setting a new personal best in the process. Conditions are identical here today, just on a different track. Regan Bayliss sticks with her and already a four-time winner over the trip, the three-year-old looks set to do it all again.
The Chris Waller-trained SAVIGNE (best odds $9.50 with Bet365) has improved after four starts this time in and ticking every box here, looks ready to break through for her first win this campaign. Last start, the Ocean Park mare stepped up to the 1800m for the first time and three starts back from a spell, she ran home well to grab third prize in a BM78 at Rosehill. She impressed with her last 600m, running it out 3.2 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. Waller drops the mare back to her pet distance today where she has saluted three times before. Kerrin McEvoy returns for the ride today after tasting success on her previously. She doesn’t win too often but the stage is really set here for her to give this a real fright at good each-way odds. Unbeaten at the track and trip and a two-time winner on heavy tracks, she represents great value and is well worth an each-way ticket today.
