Jason Bonnington's Preview for Charlton

Mon, 24 Nov 2014

It's fair to say that the first half of today's programme is pretty tough from a punting perspective but once we hit the Quad there is more for us to play with. One thing I'm confident about is that today won't be one where short priced favourites get things all their way so we're playing for value and hoping for a monster Quad result.

The Moral

Race 5 - No. 3 Whisper Jet

There are no dead-set 'locks' on today's card but if I were to nominate the most likely winner it would be this girl who should lead and be too good f she does.


Best Bet(s) - $20 Each Way
R8 No.2 - Westernview Jack$7.5*
Sometimes seeing is not believing but what this guy did last start at Horsham when three wide for the last lap and monstering an easier field than this was something to behold. He was $25 there and has to do it again in tougher grade but I think he can and I really think he'll win.
Best Value - $15 Each Way
R3 No.7 - Zuko Dream$6.5*
There are probably four serious winning hopes engaged here but this bloke has been racing in much better company than his rivals and if Michael Azzopardi is aggressive as expected then class may prove the difference at a pretty handy price.
R7 No.12 - Witzend$8.5*
I've always had a fair bit of time for this bloke and his form so far this prep has been very, very solid. He hasn't had any great success in his few starts from the strands but will only need a safe start here to be a winning hope.
Best Roughie(s) - $10 Each Way
R7 No.6 - Wheres Paddy$14*
This guy's got a pretty god record from the strands & has been been known to ping the tapes in the past., Add that to the fact he was good last start and has a decent overall record and the $14 in today's Herald Sun is tempting enough for me.
Money Race(s)
R8 $60 Flexi Trifectas
As mentioned previously, I'm pretty keen on Westernview Jack (2) here but the two major dangers are certainly Bobby Fabulous (4) and Cheyenne Warrior (6). Throw Waterslide (1) and Our Spunky Monkey (7) into the mix and you should have the Trick in some way, shape or form.
