    Not the greatest of results last time out, though the horse I zoned in on, Portman, saluted comfortably. Looking to bounce back hard, so here are my five best bets for the weekend.

    Bet One- Win- Randwick Race Six Number 8 Admiral Jello
    His trials were very good leading up to his resumption over 1500m here a fortnight back where he was a real eye catcher late when warming to the task behind Pelethronius.

    Up to the mile, fitter, upside and once again, he will be strong late. Struggling to find a negative. Just hope the bookies don’t cuddle him.

    Bet Two- Win- Randwick Race Seven Number 1 Le Romain
    $2.30 is about right. High-class animal for Kris Lees who had a fabulous Autumn, highlighted by a Group 1 win in the Canterbury and then running second to Winx in the George Ryder. Forget the Doncaster.

    Had no luck and the track was against him. He has looked sharp in a couple of trials and from all reports, his piece of work last Friday was outstanding. Class gets him home I think.

    Bet Three- Win- Doomben Race Seven Number 4 Mishani Sleuth
    Looks the best bet at Doomben. Quality four year old for the Chris Anderson camp who comes through the 2YO/3YO Plate last Saturday where he was no match for Prioritise but gee his last 200m was outstanding given where he was.

    The rise to 1350m is perfect and I like that he is backing up.

    Bet Four- Win- Morphettville Parks Race One Number 6 Wallace Street
    Taking the chance here. Son of Written Tycoon on debut for the Richard Jolly who has trialled twice leading in and both times has been good, the latest resulting in a slick win in good time. Scratched from an easier race on Wednesday for this could be a good lead.

    Bet Five- Win- Flemington Race Four Number 2 Killarney Kid
    Not far off the best bet across the four city meets. Loved his effort here a fortnight back when working home hard against the tempo behind stablemate Pacodali. Getting closer to peak fitness now, the Flemington 2000m is his fav track/distance, has the upside…one to beat for sure, even with Bondi Beach engaged.
