Here are today’s Devonport Tips:
Race 1 - 1:00PM Unique Doors & Windows Benchmark 66 Hcp (1650 METRES)
Being the recipient of a nice cart into the race, BANCA NIP (Best Odds Currently $5 with Bet365) got the job done last start. Fellow dead-heat winner, Mywordis would be hitting Ismail Toker up for the rest of the sling for the ride in. That horse also did it tough being trapped 3WNC while first-up. Still, there was no pace in the race, so it probably looked worse than it was. Ismail settled Banca Nip a clear last off that slack tempo, so there’s also plenty of merit to his run as well. Finds a more suitable distance too now third-up, pace again may be of issue. No-one really wants to lead here, suspecting Rising Light might take it up. Banca Nip has a beautiful turn-of-foot, hoping they can settle close enough before finishing over the top.
Race 3 - 2:10PM Ladbrokes Punter Assist 3YO Maiden (1150 METRES)
Interesting to note the jockeying for rides here, with Brendon McCoull replacing the apprentice on WANE’S QUEST (Best Odds Currently $4 with TAB). McCoull had looked ice-cool in the saddle during the barrier trials of today’s rival, and debutante, Chosen Eagle. Both of his trials were impressive, though don’t rate to the time that Wayne’s Quest recorded prior to his first start. He was asked a little during his trial, where he led from barrier to post. Still did plenty of things wrong, including wanting to change legs several times under the apprentice rider. The claimer rode him at his first start, where Wayne’s Quest was away awkwardly before hunting through to lead. They ran them along, before tiring noticeably. Telling that McCoull goes onto this horse now, and he may help to find the improvement needed in Wayne’s Quest.
Race 5 - 3:22PM Tasmanian Horse Transport MDN/CL1 (1650 METRES)
Perfectly understandable if those who backed TASSIE MISS (Best Odds Currently $3 with Unibet) are still feeling mean following last start. Opening at $1.40 and trapped 3WNC from the get-go, who wouldn’t throw the remote at the tv? Nothing that Erica Byrne Burke could do about it, she was on the hot-pot, and the others had targeted her well. Different scenario now from the inner draw while up slightly in class. Tassie Miss clearly isn’t bomb-proof, however neither are any of her rivals. Should stalk them from the box-seat behind the leader, with Sunday being the day for her.
