Race 3 – 3:22PM TAB BENCHMARK 69 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Whilst our race favourite here (All Eez) has the runs on the board, I still believe at his current price he is under the odds. On paper at least, there appears to be three or four winning chances here which doesn’t warrant taking ‘red-odds’ on any runner in my opinion. There seems to be plenty of value on offer with the Trinity Bannon-trained WALK THE TALK who strips fitter after two runs back from four months in the paddock. The former Lindsay Park galloper was transferred to the Bannon stables in Mackay mid-2019 and took some time to settle in. After poor showings at his first three North Queensland appearances, he was spelled for four months and appears to have come back a different horse. First-up on his new home track, he beat all but You Know The One home in a BM65 contest over 1100m. Then last start, he travelled south to Rockhampton where he missed the jump and settled mid-field. He ran home solidly to finish third in the Class 2 event over 1050m, beaten a length on the line. The Nicconi four-year-old was doing his best work over the last 100 metres, giving the impression he may now be ready for today’s jump to 1200m, where he is yet to manage a top-three finish after five previous attempts. That break has done him wonders and going on his two runs since resuming, he looks great value in this. He does meet up with You Know The One again, but this time he has the benefit of those two runs under his belt and meets him better at the weights as well. Already a winner when third-up, I expect he will give us a bold sight today.
