Albury is racing on a Good 4 with the rail Out 3m from 1000m to 350 than cutaway.
Lightly-raced undefeated filly LAGARDE looks perfectly placed to breakthrough for her much deserved maiden victory here today. Has placed at three from her four starts to date and will be ready to fire first-up after a solid trial at Rosehill a fortnight back. Drawn perfectly, looks the winner.
1st: No3 LAGARDE 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No6 Bill ‘n’ Ted; 3rd: No8 Island Gem; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No1 Onelastcrown
Alan Denham trained DAME KIRI was defeated by I Am a Cool Kid at Scone last start and has drawn to be very competitive here today. Go on her debut victory when proving too good for her rivals winning by just under a length at Tamworth a month back. Will strip fitter and looks hard to go past here today, sticking with her.
1st: No7 DAME KIRI 2nd: No2 Silent Dream; 3rd: No4 Kate’s Pearl; 4th: No3 Bunny Bad Girl
PIERONE (NEXT BEST BET) looks perfectly placed to make it successive victories after getting the job done by less than a length at Cessnock last start, winning at big odds. The horse that came second Shalama has gone on to win at Wyong at her next start. Looks a key player and will be looking to make it back-to-back victories here today.
1st: No9 PIERONE 2nd: No6 Thornbro; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No10 Mansab; 4th: No8 Conwoman
Looks a perfect race for in form gelding SMITH (BEST BET) to bounce back into the winner’s circle here today. Chased hard but failed to reel in the winner when going down to Road for Heaven by less than a length on this track last start. Did win by 1.5 lengths two starts back at Tamworth and going by that effort, he looks like the one they all need to beat. Serious chance.
1st: No2 SMITH 2nd: No4 Husswick; 3rd: No7 Melted Moments; 4th: No3 Bulletson
Happy to give EVE’S MISS another chance after being beaten by Stephan at Canberra last start. Sure to strip fitter second-up and has a great record over this distance range. Has won three from her six starts to date and looks well-placed to take out the final event of the program at Moruya today.
1st: No2 EVE’S MISS 2nd: No1 Leami Astray; 3rd: No6 Joan Constance; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No3 Missed Out
