BEST: Race 10, No. 5 SPRIGHT - $5.00
Running out chances but at the price, she's a bet in the get-out dropping back to a very winnable race. Either side of a second up run which I think she was just a little flat (still ran second) are tough to ignore at Group 1 level and arguably should've pushed Sunlight in the William Reid. Deserves a win and with a bit of luck, she's the one to beat.
VALUE: Race 8, No. 8 YOGI - $12.00
Underrated and despite his racing pattern has still won 8 from 31 which given the lack of really suitable races around, is a good achievement. Been ticking along well this campaign, his first Sydney run looked a tune-up and this is the target. Proven stayer that has carried 57kg over 2 miles, carries only 53kg here and each way at the price, looks the value.
BEST: Race 2, No. 2 RENEWAL - $4.20
Will struggle to find a better placed horse over the card than this Team Hawkes trained 4yo who drops from a BM90 second up where if he draws a gate he finishes much closer all the way back to a BM78 whilst gets relief with the 2kg claim. Was a brave winner first up, looks have come back in good order and wasn't far off in group company this time last year.
VALUE: Race 5, No. 8 AMERI...
