Race 2 - 1:57PM AVON VALLEY CONTRACTORS MAIDEN (2200 METRES)
Best Bet ?No. 1 BRUNY ISLAND $2.75 Bet Now!
Is this the one for the eight-year-old, BRUNY ISLAND, to break through for his first career win? Despite being the oldest horse in the field, he has raced just 11 times throughout his career and only debuted two years ago. He has placed in seven of his 11 career runs and stepped up to the 2000m at Bunbury on November 3, placing 3rd behind Miss Maranta. The son of Saxon was well beaten into the runner-up slot behind Our D’amour at Northam on November 19 but was by far the best of the back markers, producing the best last sectionals over the 2200m en route to going just 0.8 lengths outside of standard benchmark. They are the best figures that any galloper in this race has produced in their careers. He has drawn perfectly in barrier 4 and Thursday should be his day.
Race 4 - 3:15PM IRON JACK HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
Next Best ?No. 3 PLAYING RED $3.60 Bet Now!
PLAYING RED can go one better than a last start effort that saw him finish runner-up in this grade behind Angelic Miss over the 1200m at Ascot on November 18. On that occasion, the Adam Durrant-trained galloper settled in a midfield position and closed off well when clear in the straight to land just over a length away. She went just one length slower than standard benchmark, which are the best last start figures of any runner and she was unlucky behind the handy Magical Dream at her last appearance at Northam, which was over the 1100m on October 15. She should appreciate what looks to be a solid tempo in this race and with Peter Hall on board she gets her chance.
Race 7 - 5:07PM AG IMPLEMENTS HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
Best Value?No. 9 SEMIGEL $4.80 Bet Now!
SEMIGEL can go close at the each-way quote in Race 7 of the day. The four-year-old battled when being tried over slightly longer trips earlier this preparation but has been excellent at his last two and has drawn perfectly for this assignment. The Luke Fernie galloper couldn’t quite reel them in at Class 2 level at Kalgoorlie over the 1200m two starts ago when overacing out three wide before heading to Ascot over the 1200m on November 11 and finishing runner-up to Vital Blast. On that occasion, he never really enjoyed a clear crack in the straight but did manage to go 2.6 lengths faster that standard, which are the best last start figures of any runner. The son of Alfred Nobel gets in on the minimum weight and will be ridden by Chris Parnham.
