R5 TAB Vanity G3 1400m 3YO Fillies SW

(Note: Green – Top 5, Best Profile/Value; Red – Bottom 5, Worst Profile/Value).

Race Comment

There is a strong profile for a first up horse running on from worse than midfield in this race. Legless Veuve was gifted the race due to a very slow early pace at it’s last start and does not suit the profile of today’s race. Harlow Gold and Nurse Kitchen both read well, in terms of returning from a spell and their position on the map.

Confidence Level: High

Bet Recommendations

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Harlow Gold

Laying on Betfair LAY (WIN) Legless Veuve

R6 CS Hayes Stakes G3 1400m C&G 3YO SW

Race Comment

Hey Doc and Kaching both fit the desired profile for this race. They step up to the 1400m after strong first up efforts over 1200m (both not having the best of luck, Hey Doc with tempo, and Kaching no clear galloping room). They have shown benchmark figures which should see them very competitive in this. Seaburge does not fit the race profile, it will need longer and this race is not it’s target.

Confidence Level: Medium

Bet Recommendations

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Hey Doc

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Kaching

Laying on Betfair LAY (WIN) Seaburge

R8 Black Caviar Lightning Stakes G1 1000m WFA

Race Comment

Star Turn fits the profile. This 3yo colt produced a peak first up last prep over the 1100 when was running through the line running the fastest ‘400–200’ and ‘200 to the finish’ splits. Can be handy and produce a strong final sectional which is a good recipe for the historic race–shape of the Lightning. Resumes off a spell here (112 days), which has also been a favourable circumstance for this race.

Confidence Level: Medium

Bet Recommendations

Back on Betfair BACK (WIN) Star Turn

 

Good Luck Backing & Laying.
