Tried our top rated bookmakers?
Race 1. (12:55) Palace Pier New @ Darley BM58 (1000m)
#3 – Miss Kojiki @ $3.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Miss Kojiki is getting close to posting a win at Scone after six attempts for four placings.
The four-year-old mare went close at Taree last time out when finishing second behind Stariks and that form holds up.
Getting the inside draw and an apprentice claim is a bonus.
Race 3. (14:10) Victor Ludorum New @ Darley BM58 (1000m)
#3 – The Big Seal @ $3.30 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The Big Seal capped off three consecutive second placings with a win at Gilgandra and it could win again.
He is a three-year-old son of Your Song who scored by a half-length and he loves running over this distance, so punters should get a good sight.
Barrier two is ideal and we have high hopes.
Race 5. (15:20) Ghaiyyath @ Darley C1 Plate (2200m)
#5 – Dunlee @ $12 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Dunlee is still looking to break maiden grades after 23 starts but we’re sticking with the five-year-old gelding.
The Nikki Pollock-trained runner didn’t fire at Tamworth last start but his best form comes on the track with four starts for three placings.
Punters get value odds worth snapping up.
Race 7. (16:35) Pinatubo New @ Darley BM58 (1300m)
#3 – Russley Crown @ $4.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Russley Crown looked the goods when winning on debut at Scone and he could get back to his best form.
The three-year-old son of Shamus Award finished only a nose behind the winner at Scone last start and he was finishing stoutly.
He gets a big weight to carry but punters shouldn’t be deterred.
Race 2. (13:00) Pony Xpress Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Funnyifitwon @ $3.70 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Funnyifitwon has shown good promise at the trials with a win and three placings from four trial attempts.
The three-year-old son of Starcraft won his first trial at Moe before placing at his last two trials at Tatura so he has plenty of fitness under his belt.
Punters get each-way odds to enjoy.
Race 3. (13:30) Warrack Motel Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Sir Phoenix @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Sir Phoenix has been running well in harder races and the son of Vadamos should appreciate this level of racing.
The three-year-old colt ran second at Pakenham three back and returned to form when running fifth at Ballarat in heavy conditions last start.
The odds are worth taking as he has more upside than most here.
Race 5. (14:30) Equissage Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Masako @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Masako showed ability when running three consecutive placings to start her career and it’s only a matter of time before she wins.
The daughter of Real Impact comes off a third placing at Sandown and running 1.5 lengths behind Forged is good enough form.
We expect the $2.90 to firm on race day.
Race 8. (16:00) Thanks Lance & Dale BM58 (1600m)
#9 – Chanel @ $4.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Chanel is a former New Zealand runner who is getting close to breaking through in Australia.
The Patrick Payne-trained three-year-old owns a win and three placings from nine starts, so she has made a good start to her career.
Barrier 16 is the only worry but she has time to find cover and hit the line best.
