Race 1. (17:45) Iron Jack Australia Lagers Maiden (1200m)
#3 – Hell Hath No Fury @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hell Hath No Fury finished fourth on debut at Flemington and that form bodes well for a Thursday meeting.
The two-year-old filly by Hellbent comes off a trial win at Geelong, so she’s primed for a big effort and we like her chances.
Punters have to take short odds, but they look well-placed.
Race 3. (18:45) Superior Food Services Maiden (1400m)
#6 – Mangani @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mangani was solid on debut at Flemington and he’ll find this level of opposition much cheaper.
The three-year-old son of Tarzino was 4.2 lengths behind the winner and he’s better for the run, so punters should be expecting a much better effort.
He opened at $4.20 and has been backed into $3.60, which is a solid move.
Race 5. (19:45) Sammy Myors on Sportsbet BM70 (1200m)
#4 – Yulong Code @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Yulong Code is knocking on the door after consecutive placings and he was gallant last time out.
The four-year-old son of Zoustar finished a half-length behind Beehunter in a driving finish and he won’t find this any harder.
He placed at his only start on the track and he should be right in the finish.
Race 7. (20:45) Sportsbet Bet with Mates BM64 (1400m)
#6 – Miss Middle Park @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miss Middle Park has made an impressive start to her career, including a half-length win at Cranbourne to break maidens.
The three-year-old daughter of Maurice comes off a third placing at Sandown and that run holds her in good stead for this race.
Barrier three is ideal and having Jye McNeil in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 1. (13:15) Sneddon Bros C1 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Your Too Good @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Your Too Good goes on top after some pleasing trial efforts at Randwick to prepare for this race.
The three-year-old filly broke maidens at Hawkesbury before placing twice at Warwick Farm, so the ability is there.
Barrier five is ideal and punters haven’t missed her in early betting markets.
Race 4. (15:05) Gosford It BM64 (1600m)
#4 – Mo the Great @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mo the Great won well at Gosford two back before finishing fourth at Newcastle behind some capable types.
The eight-year-old isn’t getting any younger, but he runs his best races on the track and over the distance, including four wins at 1600m.
It’s not an overly good field and he could take advantage.
Race 5. (15:40) Debortoli Wines Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Miss Calculation @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miss Calculation owns two placings from four starts, including a second placing at Port Macquarie last time out.
The three-year-old daughter of Astern shouldn’t take long to break her maiden status and getting the inside draw with an apprentice claim helps.
We would be surprised if she didn’t figure in the finish.
Race 7. (16:55) Pluim Group BM64 (1200m)
#4 – Pole Position @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pole Position was impressive on debut when scoring by 2.5 lengths and he has plenty of upside.
The three-year-old son of Astern showed professionalism at his first start and he has been rock-solid in betting markets.
We expect the $2.50 to firm to an odds-on quote come race time.
