Racing returns to the Valley for the first time since March and it is JIGSAW ($1.90 with Bet365) that shapes as one of the better bets of the day. The late season two-year-old resumed at Caulfield on June 26 and led from start to finish, clearing out to a two-length win from Sharp Response, who has since come out and won well at Sandown. Jigsaw went nearly seven lengths faster than standard at Caulfield and improved five lengths on figures at his second run in the autumn when placing 3rd in the Blue Diamond Prelude (1100m). He has drawn barrier 4 and will race on the speed, which is a recipe for success at the Valley.

This shapes as one of the better races of the day with some exciting three-year-olds in action, including the race favourite, I’m Thunderstruck. But it is TUVALU ($4 with Ladbrokes) that I am going with to score a mini upset. The Lindsey Smith-trained galloper was runner-up to I’m Thunderstruck when resuming at Flemington on July 17 and has four lengths to make up. He is 3kg better at the weights, which is a help, but I expect him to pick up more lengths at his second run. At his initial preparation, the son of Kermadec improved nine lengths on benchmark figures when going from a maiden win at Warrnambool over the 1300m to a win at Sandown ahead of Cumberbatch over the 1400m. He is likely to settle a lot closer to the speed, whereas I’m Thunderstruck will be snagged back from the barrier. Brett Prebble rides and has provided punters with a 16% profit on turnover when combining with the Smith stable.

Best Value comes in the final race of the day and IMPERIAL LAD ($11 with Palmerbet) can go close at his second run back from a spell. The Jim Moloney-trained galloper was a first up winner over the 1147m at Geelong in this grade on July 7 and was nothing short of consistent at his last campaign, placing in all six of his runs. The noted front-runner was a first up winner at his last prep before stepping up to BM78 level and placing 3rd at Sandown over the 1300m. He improved 2.5 lengths on figures that day and was competitive later on in stronger grade. The son of All Too Hard gets the 3kg claim and will either lead of box-seat from barrier 6.
