Race 8, No. 10 VICTOREM
Had a tough assignment first up in the Kosciusko on a heavy track and knows how to find the line winning 5 from his 8 starts. Excels second up and will likely position closer in the run this time given the good gate. Has always shown ability has placed in Group 3 company and now is ready to take the next step.
Race 1, No. 1 MORENDI
Was huge first up running on from last before last run here tracking three wide from the 1000 metres then tiring. Jumped from 1400M to 2020M so given the run he had was entitled to knock up. Third up he is a real chance given his record over this course and can reverse that form quickly. $12.
Trainer Dan Vandyke is continuing on his great run with 5 winners from his past 10 runners. He has 2 good chances in the last at Doomben No 8 Troix Choix and No. 11 Savwell.
Race 2, No. 3 NEPTUNE'S SPEAR
$13 into $4.20 is a massive go for this untrialled first starter from the Liam Birchley yard who are betting stable.
Leg 1: 5,6,7,8,9,10,18
Leg 2: 1,5,8,14
Leg 3: 3,10
Leg 4: 5,10,11
$50 gets you 30%.
Race 1: 1,5,3,5. Value Bet. Morendi.
Race 2: 2,6,1,5. Button Pusher should have won last start hitting the running rail at the 200M before the rodeo jockey balanced up again only to go down by three quarters of a length.
Race 3: 2,3,1,5. Plumaro third up is ready to produce his best. Will be getting home hard late.
Race 4: 11,14,1,2. Mymming has a slight weight swing over Bryneich and just missed stepping up to 2000M last run. Omneca ran some good races in the QLD carnival in May.
Race 5: 2,11,1,5. Zoustyle should be too speedy.Smart horse. Jami Lady was wide last start and will improve.
Race 6: 5,10,6,9. Muddy Rope was not disgraced getting nailed late by Takes Time who has a booming sprint.
Race 7: 5,1,8,3. Impasse is up in grade though drops 3.5 kilos and was very strong over this course last time.
Race 8: 10,3,5,2. Best Bet. Victorem.
Race 9: 11,5,10,12. Savwell steadily made ground first up and is up to his best distance.
