Q22 Form Guide & Tips

1. The Chosen One ($12) Bet @ Neds

The Chosen One is always around the mark and his run for fifth behind Huetor had some merit.

He is proven at the highest level, and although his best days might be behind him, he’s good enough to run into the money.

2. Kolding ($31) Bet @ Neds

Kolding is another runner who got back to form with a last-start third placing but we don’t think he can repeat that.

This is a tough field and he is well past his best, so we won’t be including him in selections.

3. Huetor (Best Bet – $3.10) Bet @ Neds

Huetor got the better of a quality field last time out, including Zaaki. It was a stylish win and we’re not surprised that he’s favourite.

The six-time winner is an exciting type and we like his chances of remaining unbeaten at Eagle Farm.

The $3.10 is well worth taking.

4. Numerian (Best Roughie – $13) Bet @ Neds

Numerian scored a win at Gosford last start when beating Great House, so it was a solid enough effort.

The six-year-old gelding is only a four-time winner but he represents value odds and he should have confidence after his success.

Barrier five is ideal and punters get odds worth taking.

5. Yonkers ($34) Bet @ Neds

We love backing Yonkers but usually in slightly easier fields than this. He has the ability to cause an upset but this could be a step too far.

6. Great House ($13) Bet @ Neds

Great House ran second behind Numerian two back and his subsequent fourth at Eagle Farm behind Huetor makes for good reading.

He almost went in as the best roughie so we’re including him in the selections, espcially with James McDonald in the saddle.

7. Kukeracha ($35) Bet @ Neds

There isn’t enough consistency with Kukeracha to warrant attention. The Waller-trained runner won three back but didn’t fire a shot last time out.

We need to see more consistent to back him with confidence and it’s just not there.

8. Le Don De Vie ($17) Bet @ Neds

He comes off a win at Flemington and he’s a six-time winner in total, but we would prefer to see him at bigger odds.

He paid $81 last time out when scoring, so the $17 doesn’t represent value.

9. Maximal (Best Each Way – $5.50) Bet @ Neds

Maximal ran on nicely for second behind Huetor and that’s the best form guide for this Group 1 feature.

The four-year-old son of Galileo owns only one win from 12 starts but he’s better than advertised and we like the odds available.

Watch for him to settle back and work into the race late.

10. Ballistic Boy ($41) Bet @ Neds

He’s a two-time winner on the track and he ran well for second last start but we don’t think he’s a Group 1 winner.

A local chance, Ballistic Boy won his only start at the distance but running in the first five would be an achievement.

11. Hopeful ($9) Bet @ Neds

Hopeful is a six-time winner from 15 starts and he comes off a win at Rosehill against an easier field.

He has been confidently backed at each-way odds, which is surprising. We rated him a $15 chance and he might drift out to double-figure odds on race day.

12. Criaderas ($41) Bet @ Neds

He gets back in the run and he hasn’t been showing his customary turn-of-foot, which isn’t ideal.

Barrier four could see him cramped but we’re not interested in his current odds.

13. London Banker ($101) Bet @ Neds

The former Kiwi could be outpaced and he would be better suited over longer distances.

The son of Tavistock has good form at Eagle Farm and he’s unbeaten at the distance, but the odds tell the story.

14. Esti Feny ($41) Bet @ Neds

Getting the inside draw is ideal but he’s another runner not going well enough to win at Group 1 level, or finish in the money.

15. Polly Grey ($18) Bet @ Neds

The former Kiwi would have loved a wet track and the conditions aren’t in her favour. She owns only three placings from 13 starts on good tracks, so we can’t take the odds.

16. Coventina Bay ($20) Bet @ Neds

Another Kiwi who didn’t fire last start and she hasn’t shown her best since arriving in Australia.

She has been specked in betting and she could figure in the finish with the right run in transit.
