Here are our Strathalbyn racing tips for today.
Race 1 - 1:20PM Adelaide Belt and Hose Colts, Geldings & Entires Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 7 JONQUEST $2.30 Bet Now!
Strathalbyn Racecource was once a track that seemed to stump the better chances of the Leon Macdonald stable. Not any more though as the Macdonald and Gluyas team have rebuilt a respectable winning record at the track. Stable senior Jason Holder comes in fresh off a break to guide the hopes of JONQUEST in the first. Good form from last prep, he’s probably been the more consistent of this lot. Ran well first-up in town when slowly into stride, before hunting up to park in behind the speed. No match for the winner Virtue, and seemed to peak on his run too. We’ll put last start down to a case of second-up syndrome, and can bounce back here.
Race 3 - 2:40PM Grundfos Three-Year-Old Class One Handicap (1100 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 6 YULE MY HERO $10 Bet Now!
Interesting to note seasoned trainer Peter Jolly has opted for the services of 3kg claimer Angus Chung for YULE MY HERO. We Black Booked this horse from his recent barrier trial effort and are keen to be on him early. Yule My Hero has had the one start at this track, and we were on him that day too. The market followed us in from a similar wide quote, and we thought he was about to get up! It took one to come out and knock us off in the photo, and here we are chasing again. That was a very strong Class 1 race, and this is the prep for Yule My Hero as he matures. Brings all the right form lines, just wish he was drawn out a touch.
Race 7 - 5:10PM Goolwa Hotel Benchmark 54 Handicap (Heat 2 Autumn Series) (1350 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 4 CASHIN’ CHEX $5.50 Bet Now!
Slight concern with CASHIN’ CHEX is that he was a little slowly away with the blinkers on for both trials. Certainly improved from trial 1 to trial 2 though. Definitely glad that trainer Kristi Evans placed them on for both trials, signaling her intent with him first-up. This also gave us punters the chance to see how he responded with the shades. So, we’ve got a few signals that Evans has him primed for a first-up tilt. His two trials were both very good against quality opposition, and not over sharp distances either. Obviously just the fact he’s wearing shades so early into a prep is another. The 1350m trip suggests she’s not mucking around in building him up. Lastly, they’ve targeted a race at home (Surely there’s also a slight mis-spelling in the race name too).
