ARNAQUEUR (Best Odds Currently $2.70 with Betstar) is hard to go past as our Best Bet for the day at Kembla Grange. Here on debut over 1200m last prep, Jean Van Overmeire had settled him back of midfield with cover. Moved into the race like a good horse on the turn to take over into the straight and record a strong win. Stepped up to the mile second-up where he finished just off the placings in the Listed Fernhill. Certainly wasn’t out of place pushing onto the G1 Champagne, where he was only beaten 4.5L to the winner there in Captivant. Two nice trials, the latest a little more fair dinkum, will have him right for the 1400m here on resumption.


We landed Symo’s Girl at the good odds of $15 (out to 17’s SP) last week off a pace map we felt would suit. One horse we considered as a clear danger was MENTALISM (Best Odds Currently $18 with Ladbrokes). The race-shape did not look so kind to him that day on the tighter Gosford track, so were happy to risk him. They didn’t attempt to push on out wide with him like we thought they might, instead settling 3WNC off the easy tempo. Didn’t lose any ground to the line, was okay over that 1000m where those off the speed weren’t suited. Ellen Hennessy, who may have some options with him now from the better draw, will likely be more positive on him early. Can box-seat behind a couple other’s who may roll forward, or just go to the front.


Formula is pretty simple for JOY AND MIRTH (Best Odds Currently $6 with TAB), Jump, relax, balance up an go! She’s done it enough times before for us to know that she likes to find her feet early in the run. She also usually takes a few runs to find her best, and is ready to show that now at her fourth run back. The track and distance winner is coming off both Heavy and Soft tracks to her more favored firmer going. Put the writing on the wall last start when buffeted all the way up the straight at Newcastle. She finished the 1200m strongly behind Danzibar Dancer despite the interference. Can go one better today with better luck in transit.
