Our best bet of the day comes from the Mudgee card where a handy type out of the Mack Griffith stable is resuming. Griffith is an astute trainer and always has his horses ready to fire and this one will be no different.
Mudgee is a Soft 7 with the rail in the true position.
Taree is a Soft 6 with the rail out 3m the entire circuit.
SUGARLAND EXPRESS looked good in breaking her maiden at Port Macquarie last time out and is primed to go back-to-back. The Johnnie Roberts-trained runner had nearly 2.5 lengths to spare at the finish of the 1506m and the extra 100m won’t be an issue here. Key player.
BUTCHOY (BEST BET) is resuming from a spell but appears ready to return a winner in this race here today. Out of the Mack Griffith yard, Butchoy has only had the two starts for a win and placing. Prior to going for a break, he won by 2.1 lengths at this track and warmed up for his return with a nice third to Dalmatia Prince at the Scone trials. Ready to win.
We think AKAMIN is ready to break a frustrating run of placings in the final event of the day. Racing in good form since resuming from a spell and was only beaten a neck behind Music Magic at Coffs Harbour last time out. The money was on that day and if there is further market support this time around, get on!
