BEST BET: Race 4 No 3 CARANO
Super effort on debut when beaten by a nose at Benalla a fortnight ago and will look to go one better here today. Will strip fitter and drawn to get a soft run in transit. Looks perfectly placed. Top Pick.
QUADDIE PICKS ( 5-6-7-8):
1,2,7,8 – 1,2,4,10 – 1,2,3,9 – 1,2,8,10
No1 ATHURIAN Good effort when beaten by a length at Terang a fortnight ago and can breakthrough here today. Drawn perfectly, the one to beat.
No5 HARRY NEW SHOES
*SCRATCHED* No8 HIGH ENERGY
No4 DON’T TEST ME
No7 BONNEIEUX Resuming from a spell but showed promise at her debut back in August to be a leading contender here today. Drawn to get the run of the race, Hard to go past.
No2 POSH PURSUIT
No4 SHORTLY MISS
*SCRATCHED* No1 CHAMPENOISE
No1 AURIC GOLD Beaten by 2.2 lengths last start on this track and can atone for that defeat here today. Has placed over the distance and on the track and will look to take up a forward position when the gates open. Win won’t shock.
No9 SINGLE HANDED
No10 SOUTHERN RIP
No3 CARANO (BEST BET) Super effort on debut when beaten by a nose at Benalla a fortnight ago and will look to go one better here today. Will strip fitter and drawn to get a soft run in transit. Looks perfectly placed. Top Pick.
No8 INTO THE WILD
No4 DOUBLE THE MAGIC
*SCRATCHED* No1 MISS IANO Down in grade and sure to be very competitive here today. Drawn to settle just behind the speed and look for her storming home in the straight. Huge class drop, big chance.
No7 ZOOT SUIT RIOT
No8 STELL OF MADRID
No 10 PARTY HOST (NEXT BEST BET) Ultra consistent galloper that looks the one to beat going on his previous efforts to date. Stormed home from the tail of the field to just fail in reeling in the winner going down by 2 lengths at Kilmore last start. Big show expected.
No1 CROCODILE SHOES
No1 NOTABLE CHOICE Will appreciate this weaker graded race and has drawn to hard to beat here today. Did win on this track a month ago when paying double figure odds. Wont get the same odds as that day but his in this with a big chance.
*SCRATCHED* No2 TRADIES TEA BREAK
No3 LET’S GO TO RIO
No9 RIBBON OF CHOICE
No2 MISTER JAT Consistent galloper that’s had two starts and yet to miss a place and also winning well on debut a month ago at Stony Creek. Ticks all the boxes and is the one they all need to beat in the final event of the program here today.
No8 MORE GRACEFUL
No 10 FRENCH SKYLINE
