Ben Krahe's Preview for Mildura

Thu, 26 May 2016

Thursday night and what better way to spend some of your pay from payday than at the beautiful Sunraysia where we see a nice 8 race program. As usual, racing will be super competitive but I think we can find a winner or three.

The Moral

Race 3 - No.8 Rap Artist

Very smart South Australian gelding who has won 10/14 including last time in a 10k final.


Take On

Race 7 - No.3 Swaggerlikejagger

Might be parked in the death seat here as the 1 has good gate speed and is going well. Throw in the mix the unbeaten 9 horse and it may be tough for Swagger.

Best Bet(s) - $20 win - Total Spend $40
R1 No.1 - Ronzel Grinner$2.1*
Has been crying out to win lately after leading last time ran 2nd to the smart Halle Rage at Swan Hill following a good 2nd here after doing work. May be able to lead here tonight and if so can finally break its Mildura duck (has 3 placings from 4 starts).
R8 No.6 - Dark Side$2*
Was a shade disappointed in this guys run last week when a beaten favourite however going back through his past runs he really grows a leg when able to get to the lead. Even from this wide barrier I expect him to be able to lead (as he did 3 starts ago ) and from there he should be too good. Loves the track having been here 30 times for 5-8-6.
Money Race(s)
R3 $24 worth of Flexi First 4's
Rap Artist should be too strong for these.
