Blake Redden's Preview for Ararat

Wed, 15 Aug 2018

Tonight's Ararat meeting looks well worth playing on a number of fronts. Both Quaddies are enticing with the right leg 'anchoring' both but that fourth race on the card is also a good trifecta race. Add to that an early roughie that can win or at least place, and we've got ourselves a nice Game Plan to build on as we head towards the weekend features.

Track information

Circumference: 810.9m, Sprint Lane: Yes, Leader's win: , Leading Trainer: Matthew Craven, Leading Driver: Jason Lee

The Moral

Race 7 - No.6 Micrometeor

This bloke comes out of the 3YO Graduate and should have them well-covered for class tonight.


Take On

Race 1 - No.7 Abstractor

The barrier draw looks awkward so given this bloke is near enough to favourite, he's worth risking tonight.

Best Roughie(s) - $5 Win x $20 Place
R1 No.11 - Fire Official$5*
This mare's run was probably better than it looks on paper last time and in an easier event, she's got to be a knockout chance at double figure odds if she can repeat that run.
Money Race(s)
R4 $40 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
All Inflight (2) should lead here and with Dot The Eye (1) right behind and John Richard (3) the other class runner, it looks the perfect opportunity to get involved in trifectas.
