Below is our guide to the best chances at Mackay today:
In career-best form this preparation, Rockhampton galloper TEZOFF (best odds $2 with Sportsbet) looks ideally placed to make it a hat-trick of wins today. Last start, the Zoffany gelding made it back-to-back victories on his home track when he arrived just in time to snatch victory in a Class 6 contest over 1500m. He ran that trip, 4.7 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best last-start effort in this field. Adam Sewell was aboard that day and with three wins and two runner-up results from seven rides on the gelding, he remains in the saddle today. The six-year-old’s only visit here resulted in a Maiden victory over 1560m eight starts back where punters sent him out a white-hot favourite at $1.90. We are looking at similar odds today but it’s fair to say the current price is justified. Ideally drawn in gate three here, he looks the pick of the crop.
Screaming out for a win today, the Darryl Hansen-trained FAST TRAIN (best odds $1.50 with Ladbrokes) looks a solid chance of breaking through for his first win this preparation. Last start, the Bullet Train gelding made it three-straight podium finishes when he took home the bronze medal in a tight finish at Cairns. With 62kgs to carry, he drew gate 11 (of 12) and settled last, spotting the leaders more than a dozen lengths to the turn. Scouting wide, he came around the field the widest runner and finished as his name suggests, missing out by less than half a length on the line in the 1900m event. He ran his last 600m, 1.8 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here. He also posted the fastest final 800m-200m sectionals for the contest. He meets similar company here as he makes his Mackay debut. Carl Spry has his third-straight ride on the six-year-old where he maps to drop back again here but in the smaller field today, he should find it a lot easier to pick up the front-runners and make his debut here a winning one. He is short with the bagmen, but looks the anchor bet of the day.
