Race 1. (12:15) Commerical Hotel Swan Hill Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Angel of Boom @ $3.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Angel of Boom has been right around the mark in four runs to date, including three placings.
The three-year-old filly comes off a third placing at Cranbourne and it’s only a matter of time before she breaks through for her maiden win.
Barrier three is ideal and punters get each-way odds.
Race 3. (13:25) The Bottle O Swan Hill Maiden (1200m)
#10 – Prudden @ $4.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Prudden is drifting in betting markets after opening at $3.90 but there is enough betting support to warrant attention.
The Hayes-trained three-year-old comes off a solid trial effort at Tatura when running fourth behind Gulf of Finland.
Barrier four is ideal and the each-way odds are worth taking.
Race 4. (14:00) No Fuss Event Hire Vobis Gold (1300m)
#10 – Quang Tri @ $2.40 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Quang Tri is getting close to posting a win after three solid efforts, including a second placing at Sale last start.
The two-year-old filly had solid betting support when running a nose behind Bank Mour, who lines up in a much stronger race on Saturday.
The form speaks volumes and she could firm into an odds-on quote.
Race 6. (15:10) Jarrod Arentz BM70 (1600m)
#1 – Eagles Crag @ $2.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Archie Alexander lines up the five-year-old gelding who owns three wins from seven starts.
The son of Fastnet Rock won at Benalla three back before running fifth at Caulfield behind Saltpeter, which is excellent form.
His most recent run was encouraging and the big weight shouldn’t matter too much against this level of opposition.
Race 2. (13:00) Ray White Rural Showcase Maiden (1310m)
#9 – Taborca @ $3.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Taborca should appreciate the easier level of racing after running at Randwick and Canterbury.
The Cameron Crockett-trained gelding second a nose behind the winner at Canterbury before disappointing at Randwick, but the former Waller-trained runner has ability.
We expect him to run much better against this field.
Race 3. (13:35) Kings Hall Jewel Silver Goblet (1110m)
#6 – Marillier @ $3 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Marillier is seeking back-to-back wins at Dubbo after scoring impressively by 2.3 lengths on debut.
The Tracey Bartley-trained two-year-old handled a good field and it came in similar conditions, so the track isn’t a concern.
Money is coming for the daughter of Deep Field and we’re in her camp.
Race 5. (14:45) Hahn Superdry 3.5 Handicap (1010m)
#6 – Billabong Isle @ $3 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Billabong Isle rattled off three consecutive wins last preparation before struggling at Randwick.
The three-year-old filly wasn’t too far away in a Highway Handicap and she has returned with a trial placing at Dubbo.
She loves the track and she could hit the ground running on Friday.
Race 7. (16:00) Dubbo RSL Club Classic BM58 (1310m)
#4 – Justfour @ $3.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Justfour looks to cap off three consecutive placings with a win and this isn’t a hard field to beat.
The three-year-old filly scored her only win at the distance and it was a dead-heat win at Muswellbrook. A repeat of that effort takes her close and the early betting support is a good sign.
Barrier three helps and punters should expect a tidy effort.
