Blake Redden's Preview for Tabcorp Park

Mon, 19 Mar 2018

We've been switching-hitting the last two Monday's with Melton in the day rather than the night and that theme continues today with nine races up for decision. It's not a Quaddie that i'm super, super keen on but we will attack it along with the Early Quaddie too. That said, i'm most interested in getting stuck into our best bet, best value and money race in terms of today's Game Plan.

Track information

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

The Moral

Race 2 - No.1 Bossanova Bay

This guy draws the pegs today and really should just be too zippy for his rivals.


Take On

Race 5 - No.8 Bring the Action

I have good respect for this blokes ability and he will be in the Quaddie but he is vying for early favouritism and I don't think he should be that short.

Best Bet(s) - $35 Win
R7 No.3 - Kissmelvis$2.6*
This fella's form around Dansbro and Royal Knockout recently is very good for this and moreover, if he lobs somewhere handy to the speed he looks very hard to beat.
Best Value - $20 Each Way)
R5 No.1 - Lucky Pats Son$2.8*
This guy has shown solid improvement in three Australian runs and made a dash at them last time before fading late. He hasn't shown a great deal of gate speed recently but if he can use his alley to hold the back of Aldebaran Pirate (4) early, and that horse holds the lead, then I think this bloke will be hard to hold out late.
Money Race(s)
R9 $30 Worth Of Flexi Trifectas
I was a little surprised to see Reils (9) is likely to come up favourite given how big Meziah (4) was last time but regardless it still looks a lovely race to step into given they are the absolute class and there looks limited chances for third.
