Ben Krahe's Preview for Mildura

Tue, 28 Apr 2015

What an amazing effort yesterday by GoodForm's Blake Redden to tip us into a quaddie that paid over $2500 on the Vic Tote (more if you live north of the border). I have the unenviable task of presenting GoodForm the day after that so dont go expecting any similar heroics!. Ill be happy if I can produce a profit after that performance. The positive for me is that your pockets are full and I hope to make them just a little fuller after tonights meeting.

The Moral

Race 8 - No.8 Murranji Track

Classy 3yo Gelding who has won 3 from its last 4. Drew horribly in Guineas here but still managed a creditable 5th. Down to a C1 expect it to be too good.


Best Bet(s) - $50 win - Total Spend $150
R2 No.3 - Skylarker$1.7*
Transferred to the strong Hryhorec stable - this guy has GS and can lead here. Isnt the bravest horse going around but there are no stars here. Led at Melton 2 starts ago only to capitulate in the straight. Hoping it can lob the lead around this tight track and thats half the battle around here.
R3 No.4 - Darah Rock$1.7*
Think this gelding has some talent - the day he debuted here he was the medium of some heavy support but things went wrong. Finally put it all together 2 starts back when led all the way. Has had a freshen up but I think hes the best horse in this race by far.
R6 No.1 - Tibytoa$1.6*
This gelding loves to lead and only knows one speed. Has had 3 starts this time in - 2 efforts at Mildura were both very good in harder races then had no luck at Swan Hill. Zac Phillips should be able to ping this one to the front from the gate and they wont see where he's gone.
Money Race(s)
