Race 1 - 1:52PM TAB BENCHMARK 58 Handicap (2000 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 1 CALL ME LEGEND $4 Bet Now!
CALL ME LEGEND has a versatility edge on these out and out stayers. Following a slight let-up, Call Me Legend improved his standing late over 1100m at Beaudesert. He finished less than 5L from the winner, though was doing his best work late. Was much the same throughout when running over 1400m at the Gold Coast as he signalled that he’s ready for the longer trips now. His trainer, Kelvin Hickmott, found a nice little tune-up run over the mile at Doomben five days ago. Call Me Legend managed to run time and should find this trip more to his liking now.
Race 2 - 2:34PM TAB MAKE A DATE WITH PLAY Maiden Handicap (1100 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 5 ELKA ELEVEN $3 Bet Now!
Showing good gate speed out wide was the filly ELKA ELEVEN at Ipswich on resumption over the short 800m trip. Jayden Lloyd looked to capitalize with a forward position, instead was forced deep as Elka Eleven covered ground the entire. She did loom threateningly top of the straight, only to have the two leaders kick and fight out for themselves. Trainer Stephen Kirkwood sent her around at Gatton second-up and even booked the hot local hoop Skye Bogenhuber for the ride. She gave the horse every possible over the 1100m, perhaps just going for home a little too soon. Little Albert to swept on by to score over the sitting shot that was Elka Eleven. Fitter, and back to the claim of Jayden Lloyd gives Elka Eleven the edge she needs to score today.
Race 7 - 5:52PM TAB BENCHMARK 58 Handicap (800 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 4 GRANDIOSO $7 Bet Now! New Customers only. 18+. T&C’s Apply. begambleaware.org.
Les Tilley is the go-to jock around here when it comes to riding winners. We could do worse than trying to get-out on one of his mounts, and he’ll give GRANDIOSO every chance. A recent Rockhampton winner over 1100m, Grandioso has been given a let-up by his local Warwick trainer, Les Clarke. While he hasn’t been tried this trip, Grandioso has shown a liking for his home track with a win and two minor placings. There’s plenty of speed engaged in this, should they over-do it then Tilley and Grandioso will make their presence felt.
