Race 2. (12:25) Murphy’s Landscaping Maiden (1200m)
#12 – Running By @ $3.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Running By comes off an easy jumpout win and she has been well-backed from the Maher/Eustace stable, which is always a good sign.
The two-year-old filly by Impending has the breeding to win on debut and jumping from barrier five is ideal.
Take the $3.20 before the odds firm.
Race 4. (13:35) Winter Blues Festival Maiden (1400m)
#7 – Estilled @ $4.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Estilled owns three placings from six starts, including her last two starts at Wangaratta and Swan Hill.
The three-year-old daughter of Skilled should get all favours off the inside draw and that’s her biggest asset on Friday.
$4.50 is a price worth snapping up before it shortens.
Race 6. (14:45) Edg Space BM64 (1300m)
#10 – Predetermined @ $9 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Predetermined is better than his form suggests and we’re sticking with the three-year-old son of Headwater.
The Corstens-trained runner didn’t fire on the synthetic at Ballarat last start but we think he’s better on grass tracks.
Barrier five is ideal and the each-way odds appeal.
Race 7. (15:20) Moama Bowling Club BM64 (2100m)
#11 – Pres De Toi @ $4.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The favourite is paying value odds for punters following three placings this preparation.
The seven-year-old mare is a five-time winner from 51 starts but she also has 14 placings on her record, which can’t be ignored.
We’re prepared to put her in selections one more time.
Race 1. (12:15) Douglass Blinds & Security Maiden (1400m)
#1 – Noble Legend – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Noble Legend wasn’t far behind some nice types last start, including Wednesday winner Miyoshi.
The Freedman-trained three-year-old shouldn’t take long to win a race and this race is there for the taking, especially for a city-performed type.
Watch for any late betting moves.
Race 2. (12:50) The Kosciuszko Maiden (1600m)
#1 – Flyway – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Flyway is getting close to breaking through after back-to-back second placings at Hawkesbury and Wyong.
The three-year-old son of Star Turn wasn’t close to the winner last start but it was still a good run in defeat.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and we’re in his camp.
Race 4. (14:00) Aaron Grant Electrical BM58 (1300m)
#4 – Negation – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Negation turned her form around when winning at Goulburn last start and we fancy her chances to kick on with it.
The two-year-old daughter of Hellbent is bred to show speed and she’s in the same hands as Hellbent was, so that’s good.
3kg comes off her back and we like the odds.
Race 6. (15:10) Radio Goulburn C1 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Per Ivy – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Per Ivy scored on debut at Wyong before recording back-to-back placings at Canberra and Wyong.
The Matthew Smith-trained three-year-old comes off a couple of tidy trial efforts and that should cap her off nicely for this run.
We expect each-way odds on race day as it’s not an easy field.
