Race comments, confidence and ratings across the entire card at Darwin.

Darwin Markets R1 – 6

R1 Garrard’s Horse & Hound HCP-66 | 1200m | 2:27pm

Tricky race. Dancing Poetess mixes her form, but has the peak performances to win this comfortably and one of those came two starts ago. The problem last start was that she didn’t show the same early speed and ended up posted wide. This race looks a little easier to get across on the lead and that could see her bounce back to a winning figure.

Race Confidence: Low

Runner Name Rating
4. Dancing Poetess $3.30
2. Alphabetic $3.50
1. The Hummel $4.00
3. Ambrosia $14.00
5. Its A Pipedream $16.00
6. Chetalli $26.00

R2 Darwin RSL Admins Cup | 1200m | 3:07pm

Super Swift’s first NT run last start was a solid second placing with a rating that represents the best recent form in this race. Scope to improve and the ability to settle handy present him with a solid profile.

Race Confidence: Average

Runner Name Rating
7. Super Swift $3.00
4. Viking Prince $5.50
6. Chase The Rose $7.50
1. Bon Jet $9.00

R3 Channel 9 HCP | 1100m | 3:47pm

Spoilspot has been well beaten in recent runs, but still running placings in above average rating races that leave him with figures good enough to win this. He looks to tag the likely favourite Swingitlikesayers all the way here and may just prove too strong in the last little bit.

Race Confidence: Low

Runner Name Rating
1. Spoilspot $3.60
6. Swingitlikesayers $4.00
2. Melanion $5.50

5. Dash About $21.00
7. Poets Choice $6.50

R4 Magic Millions HCP | 1100m | 4:27pm

Eighteen Bombers has been super consistent in his career with a number of ratings that are good enough to win this race. One of those came last start, while all of his opposition are coming off poor last start runs. He’s rightfully a dominant top pick.

Race Confidence: Good

Runner Name Rating
1. Eighteen Bombers $2.00
2. Jolly Boy $7.00
4. Roughly $7.50
3. Kruptor $10.00
5. The Fifth Element $18.00
6. Sheza Dark Horse $17.00
9. Bachelor Pad $101.00
7. Roadbells $101.00

R5 Palmerston Sprint | 1200m | 5:05pm

This is a hot race, but Captain Punch has been super impressive in his recent wins, smashing the clock with both overall time and quality sectionals. His form looks a level above the others making it difficult to price him any longer than $1.70. Anything greater than that is a worthy betting prospect.

Race Confidence: Good

Runner Name Rating
4. Captain Punch $1.70
1. Handsome Tycoon $4.50
3. Prince Harada $9.00
5. Silent Whisper $17.00
7. Alpha Man $51.00
2. Action Again $81.00
8. Gallant Express $81.00
6. African Pulse $101.00

R6 Sitzler HCP | 1600m | 5:44pm

Zoom Lad has run ratings in four of his last five runs that look good enough to win this, including last start. Drawn a little awkwardly, but he’s clearly the one to beat.
