We look to start the week with a few chances that look well-placed and will prove hard to beat at Swan Hill and Grafton today. Our top pick hit the paddock after a dominant last start victory at Ballina and looks ready to fire first-up today.

 

Swan Hill is racing on a Good 4 with the rail Out 3m 1900m-1600m, Out 3m 900m-400m, True remainder.

 

Grafton is a Soft 5 with the rail +1m 850m to 400m

Consistent mare THE EULO QUEEN is racing in great form since resuming from a spell and is sure to be very competitive in the opening event of the program at Grafton today. Looked good when defeating Hidden Storm by 3.3 lengths at Ballina a fortnight ago and can make it successive victories here today. Has a great record over the distance. The one to beat.

 

1st: No2 THE EULO QUEEN 2nd: No3 Laura’s Star; 3rd: No5 Miss River Belle; 4th: No7 Samantha’s Gold

Sticking with OCEAN WALZER (NEXT BEST BET) that’s resuming from a let up and can be very competitive here today. Drawn to get the run of the race and will be coming home strong late. Has form behind Mount Kilcoy and Star Clipper and will be fit and ready to fire here today. Stable and jockey have a great strike rate when combining. Strongly fancied.
