Wednesday Strathalbyn Best Bets - 1st May
Our expert is quietly confident on three runners at Strathalbyn today that could return a nice collect in a three-leg multi.
We have found a few great chances going around at Strathalbyn that look well placed to be very competitive and prove hard to beat. Confident all three will run well and prove hard to toss!
Strathalbyn is racing on a Good 4 with the rail -out 3m 1350m - 240m, True to WP, +2m back to 1350m.
Strathalbyn Race 2 - 1:10PM (AEDT) Finniss General Store / SABOIS Maiden Plate (1350 Metres)
Expecting RAPID BAY that’s drawn perfect to break through second-up here today. Found one too good on debut a fortnight ago when beaten by half a length behind Ventriloquism and can bounce back over the 1350m today. Will get the run of the race from gate three and love the way he hit the line last time out.
1st: No3 RAPID BAY 2nd: No2 Ultimate Reality; 3rd: No6 Good Nic 4th: *SCRATCHED* No8 Miss Forbidden
Strathalbyn Race 4 - 2:25PM (AEDT) Goolwa Central Meats / SABOIS Three-Year-Old Class One Handicap (1100 Metres)
Looks a good race for the lightly raced filly MAGNA BELLA to bounce back into the winner’s circle second-up here today. Resumed from a 22-week layoff with an encouraging effort, beaten by 1.5 lengths at Gawler and with a month between runs we expect this filly to give this an almighty shake. Has won once and placed twice from her three starts to date. Key player.
1st: No4 MAGNA BELLA 2nd: No1 Bold Star; 3rd: No3 Bayou; 4th: No2 Blind Chance
Strathalbyn Race 8 - 4:40PM (AEDT) Northpoint Fleurieu Benchmark 64 Handicap (Heat 14 Autumn Series) (1350 Metres)
FULTON STREET excels on this track and is the one they all need to beat in the final event of the program at Strathalbyan today. Tried to lead throughout in harder company last time out at Oakbank and finished fourth in a tight go. Will strip fitter now and you can expect him to be dictating terms again. Big show expected.
1st: No2 FULTON STREET 2nd: No1 Cannot Be Serios; 3rd: No7 Spectate 4th: No8 Pewter
