The Moral

Race 2 - No.1 Our Bedrock

This guy loves to lead and run along and he was a bit stiff to pull himself into the ground when beaten in track record last time. This looks his race.


Take On

Race 8 - No.1 Wotplanetrufrom

This fella has the alley but he's yet to win from 16 starts and with a handy horse on his back, he's no moral tonight.

Best Bet(s) - $35 Win
R2 No.1 - Our Bedrock$1.9*
If this guy didn't run himself into the ground at Horsham he may very well have gone closer to testing Linda Lovegrace who ended up belting him by 20 metres in a track record run. That said, it was still a very nice run given he held all of his other rivals in the run home. Tonight looks a slightly easier race and from the pole he'll be really hard to catch.
Best Value - $15 Win x $25 Place
R8 No.8 - Rollon Jack$7.5*
The key to this guys chances is that he trails through the likely leader. Add to that the fact that he has been going a bit better than his figure form suggests and he'll run a mighty race tonight at the odds.
Money Race(s)
R4 $25 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
Uptight (7) is a seriously promising who should have their measure here so we'll anchor him in a trio of trifectas where Shes Excited (6) is our main danger but we'll also allow for all of Im Notta Trotter (3), Eurasian Hanover (4), Happy Hombre (5) and Super Zeck (9) to run a drum.
7/6/3,4,5,9. $12 gets 300%
7/3,4,5,9/6. $6 gets 150%
7/3,4,5,9/3,4,5,9. $7 gets 58.33%
R5 $30 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
Jilliby Courage (7) was fantastic first up and with only one danger in Big Spending Telf (4) we can lock down on some skinny tri's with Smokin Fields (3), Wereonsong (6) or Sentimental Hope (9) to run third.
7/4/3,6,9. $18 gets 600%
4/7/3,6,9. $12 gets 400%
R7 $40 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
The way this race is going to pan out I can see possibly even Garibaldi Union (5) leading. If that scenario pans out and Our Supreme Guy (1) trails, they should dominate along with Jeans Mattjesty (3) who is in the zone this preparation. With a healthy respect for Djibouti (4), Le Premiere (7) and Tearitup (8), we can play two saver trifectas to go with our major play.
Boxed 1,3,5. $24 gets 400%
1,3,5/1,3,5/4,7,8. $10 gets 55.55%
1,3,5/4,7,8/1,3,5. $6 gets 33.33%
R8 $30 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
We're already attacking this race in terms of a value bet but with Wotplanetrufrom (1) the obvious threat, we can take on the trifectas with Showem Shifty (2) and Bad Billy (4) the key third place chances.
8/1/2,4 $20 gets 1000%
1/8/2,4. $10 gets 500%
Quaddie(s) - $75
4,7/4,7/1,3,5/1,8.$39 gets 162.5%
4,7/4,7/4,7,8/1,8.$12 gets 50%
4,7/3,5,8/1,3,5/1,8.$12 gets 33.33%
3,6,9/4,7/1,3,5/1,8.$12 gets 33.33%
