Seymour Tips – July 14
Race 1 – 12:30PM Bet365 Odds Drift Protector 3YO F Maiden Plate (1300 METRES)
The fillies tackle the opener and GALGANI should be hard to beat. The Nikki Burke-trained galloper has had five career runs, placing in four of those and resumed at Moe on June 25, finishing 5th behind Mosscon. In that race, she settled in a midfield position and was ok on the Heavy in the last 200m of the race, missing out by just under two lengths. She ran 3.1 lengths slower than benchmark in that but should be open to improvement. When second up last time, she went eight lengths quicker than her initial run, while she built up to run five lengths quicker than benchmark overall when 3rd at Sandown before her spell. That is the most superior personal best of any runner here. She has drawn barrier 3 and any improvement of her first up run will see her go very close.
Race 8 – 4:00PM AVENEL EQUINE HOSPITAL BM58 Handicap (1200 METRES)
FLIRTING looks to be one of the better bets on the programme and has been crunched into $2.10 from the $2.90 in earlier markets. The Anthony Freedman-trained galloper finally broke the maiden two starts ago after a number of close calls in the lead in to that. Her winning performance came at Morphettville and at her last run he was tried at Sandown in a BenchMark 64, running on strongly to grab 3rd behind Beatrix. The daughter of Medaglia D’Oro has improved on benchmark figures at her past couple and ran 0.7 lengths quicker overall last time, which will see her more than competitive in this grade. She gets out to the 1200m but was strong over the last 400m last time so the step up shouldn’t be a problem and from barrier 5 she can get the job done.
Race 9 – 4:30PM NORTH CENTRAL HIRE BM58 Handicap (1000 METRES)
MOUNTAIN IBIS lines up in the final race of the day and can make it back to back wins after scoring at Ballarat on June 14. On that occasion, the three-year-old settled back in the field and ran on impressively from the tail, edging out Corner Pocket. He overcame a slow tempo to run his last 600m more than six lengths quicker than benchmark and should come into this with extra fitness under his belt, as he was first up last time. The progressive type has drawn barrier 1 and with the Patrick Payne/Billy Egan combination in full flight, he can close the day out a winner.
