BEST: Race 7, No. 2 GOLDEN HALO - $6.50
Competitive card but this 3yo filly dropping back against her own sex looks a terrific each way price. Got herself a "kill" over the Swan Hill carnival before taking her place in the Listed Creswick Stakes where she was runner-up albeit no match for Gytrash, who's very handy and she got the better of Bam's On Fire there who'd go around favorite in this.
VALUE: Race 4, No. 12 SPARTAN FLAME - $16.00
Appears to be underrated this 3yo who ultimately just found the 1200m a little sharp first up at Sandown behind Fight who had all the favors but he was the one rattling home when finally balancing up late. Nice type, open to improvement at this trip and meets that runner 1kg better off. Fight is the $3.90 favorite currently and that's a decent discrepancy.
BEST: Race 4, No. 3 HIGH POWER - $5.50
Tough sort of card for a strong standout but in a rather thin race, this 4yo who hits this fourth up with a 2000m effort under his belt, shouldn't be far away now. Probably just a run short and against the pattern when he found Primitivo too sharp last start but he has a big swing in the weights on the favorite and any upgrade on the surface will he...
