Race 2 - 1:15PM CLUB BEGA CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1007 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 4 STACKABLE $2.10 Bet Now!
The Joe Cleary-trained STACKABLE was a winner on debut and shoots for back-to-back wins here today. Last start, the Press Statement gelding made his debut in a Queanbeyan Maiden Plate over the 1000m sprint where he box-seated to the turn, then proved to good in the run home with Shaun Guymer at the helm. He ran his last 600m, 1.5 lengths above benchmark, the best effort in this field. He also posted the fastest overall sectionals for the event, and was the only runner to break 12 seconds for the final 200m. Not a bad effort, seeing a racetrack for the first time. He steps up to Class 1 here, through natural progression, and still draws well in gate five with Guymer sticking with him. He can only strip fitter and improve on that debut run and should he do so here, he looks the testing material.
Race 4 - 2:30PM TATHRA BOWLO BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1207 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 4 GRAZIE $4.50 Bet Now!
Third-up today, the Barbara Joseph-trained GRAZIE may come in here looking a little ‘unders’ in the market but still has strong claims as a winning chance. Last start, the Nicconi gelding showed a wealth of improvement from his first-up run when finishing fourth in a BM58 at Queanbeyan. He settled last in the field of nine but ran home strongly to just miss a podium finish that day. He ran his last 600m, just half a length slower than benchmark, the second-best effort here. Billy Owen was aboard for that event and sticks with the three-year-old here. He maps to settle near mid-field here and the extra distance today should help. Fitter for those first two runs, he should prove hard to hold out here.
Race 6 - 3:49PM MERIMBULA RSL SOUTH COAST CUP - BENCHMARK 58 HANDICAP (1607 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 8 SHRUG $7.50 Bet Now!
Two wins from four starts already this preparation puts the Natalie Jarvis-trained SHRUG right in the mix today. Last start, the Written Tycoon mare came off an unplaced run on a Heavy 9 at Queanbeyan and lined up against BM58 company on a Soft 5 at Goulburn. Stepping up in trip that day and on a more suitable racing surface (Soft 5), she bounced back in good style, taking out the event by more than a length on the line. That was her second win over the mile. She ran the trip out, 4.3 lengths above benchmark, setting a new personal best. That effort was the second-best in this field. She also posted the fastest overall sectionals for the race. Today, she meets similar company over the same trip and has regular stable rider Shaun Guymer backing-up for the ride. The only concern is the wide gate but if she can cross and settle near mid-field with cover, I am confident she can overcome that disadvantage here. She should be rock-hard fit after four runs back and is more than capable of giving this a real shake at good each-way odds.
