Albury’s third race of the program sees our top selection looking to make it back-to-back victories and we also found a few serious chances on the synthetic Pakenham surface.
Pakenham is racing on Synthetic with the rail True entire.
Albury is racing on a Soft 6 with the rail +3m 1450m to 350m then cutaway applies True remainder.
No11 SHOCK SHOCK
Sticking with lightly raced SHOCK SHOCK to finally break through in today’s maiden. Looked good when just missing on this track last start and will be looking to atone for that narrow defeat here today. Sticking with her
1st: No11 SHOCK SHOCK 2nd: No10 Peko; 3rd: No3 Cerebellum 4th: No8 Magic Mila
No4 ROSIE’S READY (BEST BET)
ROSIE’S READY won well last start on this track and looks hard to go past in the third event on the program at Albury today. Has a liking for the track and will be looking to make it successive victories today. Heavily backed last time out so check the market to see if they’re backing her again. Drawn perfectly on the inside and will be the one coming home hard late. Big danger
1st: No4 ROSIE’S READY 2nd: No3 Extra Cool; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No1 Given Evidence; 4th: No5 French Politician
No5 NO ALIBI (NEXT BEST BET)
NO ALIBI won on this track two starts back and will be the one they all need to run down here today. Will appreciate this small field and has a good record over the track and distance. May pay to forgive her failure on the Geelong Synthetic last time out when leading with a big weight. Serious player.
1st: No5 NO ALIBI 2nd: No1 Kev’s lad; 3rd: No2 Dreams Are Made Of; 4th: No4 Chopsticks
No2 EPIC MOMENT
Drawn a tad wide but looks the class galloper of the race which sees EPIC MOMENT hard to beat here today. Will strip fitter second-up and has the ability to be too good for his rivals if his mind is on the job. Looks the winner and sticking with him.
1st: No2 EPIC MOMENT 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No3 Seattle Boom; 3rd: No5 Buckler 4th: No7 Tommy Standup
No12 BELLE XAAR
Snitzel Filly BELLE XAAR looks a serious chance in the final event of the program here today. This lightly raced Darren Weir-trained filly will be fit and ready to fire and expect her to be very competitive. Drops in class from her last start fourth to Seductive Miss and doesn’t look badly treated at the weights either.
1st: No12 BELLE XAAR 2nd: No4 Triage; 3rd: No5 Amschel 4th: No11 Annanicolesnitz
