Two meetings to focus on this Tuesday, and while the depth isn’t overly strong, hopefully there are winners to be found. Down below are the best bets for the respective programs.
Best bet: Race Five Number 3 Kingmaster
Short, but should be winning. A former Kiwi that makes his Australian debut for Belinda McCarthy.
Kingmaster’s New Zealand form was mixed prior to being shipped across, but overall, he has panels on the form of this lot. He’s looked sharp in trials to get ready for the first run and it would be a major shock if he got rolled.
Next best: Race Seven Number 1 Treacherous Rock
This former Victorian is a solid gamble in a competitive race. Now with Rickie Alchin.
His efforts in Victoria were solid in some tidy races, without jumping up and down. He does possess gate speed, so if he can hold a forward spot from the pole, he only runs well against this lot.
Value: Race One Number 7 Meghan Trainor
Zero placings from seven outings and ran last at the last outing, but this race is lacking any real substance and she should be good value given her numerical record.
She is usually very quick from the mobile and she should find the front. If that eventuates, she’ll give a bold sight.
Her recent trial work here has been strong.
Best bet: Race Three Number 2 Dynamic Dan
Looks a great bet. Grant Dixon trains and drives this smart three-year-old.
He ended his juvenile prep with a narrow second at Group 1 level. Resumed here last Tuesday when drawing the second line and working home strongly late.
Should park off what looks a good speed and be strong late. Keen.
Next best: Race Four Number 1 Soho Tsunami
Looks a near good thing. He was unlucky here last Tuesday.
Eased back from the gate to find cover, he then burned around the field by himself to loom to win, but locked wheels at a vital stage and in the end was only beaten by five metres. Leads or box seats from the pole.
Whatever the scenario, he’s the one to beat.
Value: Race Seven Number 8 Goddess Jujon
Double figures is a fair enough price for her, and should she hold leaders back, she’ll only run well.
I forget she went around at Redcliffe last time. Got too far back from the nasty gate and then the tempo was an absolute crawl, meaning those from the back, including her, couldn’t get a look in.
Dangerous prospect sitting closer in the run.
