Blake Redden's Preview for Tabcorp Park

Fri, 17 Aug 2018

Tonight's meeting is the launching pad for at least two or three Inter Dominion campaigns. We'll also have some competitive racing and more than our share of punting options. We'll be playing a value option along with three money races and also both Quaddies. That should get us rolling before we head off to a stellar program at Bendigo tomorrow night for the Breeders Crown Semi-Finals.

Track information

Circumference: 1040m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Emma Stewart, Leading Driver: Chris Alford

The Moral

Race 7 - No.3 Shadow Sax

This bloke has had a mammoth season and he should be able to spear across and control things tonight.


Take On

Race 8 - No.10 Star Of Memphis

This bloke is a bit hard to line-up and I am respecting the boom on him but from outside the second row I thought there were better ways to play for value.

Best Value - $35 Win
R8 No.5 - Lets Strike The Gold$3.6*
There has to be a genuine hope that if this fella keeps progressing forward that they all hand-up to him at some stage. He went a super third behind Van Mara last time so he looks a great bet tonight.
Money Race(s)
R2 $25 Flexi Trifecta
We're not getting too tricky here but Fiery Mountain Girl (2) should get across to the pegs before Destinee Jenilou (5) takes the top off her and with Une Belle Allure (13) the other obvious talent in the race, we'll lock down on a boxed trifecta.
Boxed 2,5,13 $25 gets 416.67%
R7 $40 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
This is a beautiful punting race given Shadow Sax (3) should shoot across Ideal Success (1) early and with Audi Hare (8) on a pegline mission, they really should dominate this race.
3/1/8. $25 gets 2500%
3/8/1. $15 gets 1500%
R9 $15 Flexi Trifecta
We're not getting overexcited here but Yankee Lincoln (3) can turn the tables on Rackemup Tigerpie (4) and if he can hold his position early, Dragontown (1) should be able to run third so we'll just play a small trifecta.
3/4/1. $15 gets 1500%
Early Quaddie(s) - $30 Worth Of Flexi Early Quaddies + $95 Worth Of Flexi Normal Quaddies
1,4/2,5,13/9,10/7,8,12.$18 gets 50%
