Blake Redden's Preview for Warragul

Mon, 02 May 2016

It's fairly obvious to suggest the most advantageous position to be in racing is in front so we'll be taking that mantra into today's meeting at the Warragul Pacing Bowl. We've found two best bets who should both hold sway into the first turn along with a roughie who can do same, a money race early in the card and not just the normal but also the Early Quaddies to attack on a frosty Victorian morning.

The Moral

Race 4 - No.1 Courageous Call

I was really impressed with this girl's run in the heat and even final of the Vic Oaks and with a massive drop in class, she should be hard to beat today.


Take On

Race 7 - No.1 Modern Ville

This guy does have a few things in his favour but i'd suggest this is a bit tougher than last time and if he starts favourite he's worth taking on slightly.

Best Bet(s) - $30 Win
R7 No.2 - Illawong Bella$6.5*
This girl was pretty good behind Grinvil when sitting just off the pace last time but what must enthuses me about her chances was a win at this track two back when leading and holding Change Of Address pretty cosily. This doesn't look much stronger so provided she does find the top, I think she'll be hard to beat.
R8 No.1 - Change Of Address$3.6*
This guy is right at the peak of his powers and having been forced to do it the hard way in his last two (parking at Mildura then hitting the line from back at Ballarat), he should be able to resist any early challenge and from there, slip away when the time is right to make it three on the bounce.
Best Roughie(s) - $5 Win x $20 Place
R6 No.2 - Shifty Shivas$21*
This fella's form may be a little hidden given some horror draws at Mildura but he showed at Bendigo last time that he's still racing particularly well when a narrow second to Niki No No and from the ideal draw if he is first to the pegs, he'll have both options and a genuine winning hope.
Money Race(s)
R2 $20 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
We're tempting fate a little here by playing a money race with a first starter pivotal to our success however Betterman Stride (3) has trialled well enough to suggest he'll be more than competitive in a thin race and Our Pearl Harbour (1) regardless of how you think she's going right now, has all the aces with the draw and class. We'll be working around that pair to win and run second or third in four trifectas
