Race 5 Adelaide Cup Consolation
#2 Marlow Brown
He’s currently one of South Australia’s best chasers and he was extremely unlucky in an Adelaide Cup heat last week where he was hit on the first turn which halted his momentum. Adding to that he was checked on the home turn. He ran on well for second and should find these rivals much more to his liking. He’s won four from six starts from this draw which also adds to my confidence.
BACK (WIN) Marlow Brown on the Betfair SP
Race 8 Geelong Cup Final 28/10
#5 Pantera Nera
This chaser has won his past six of seven starts and was very unlucky in the Group 1 Megastar at Dapto last month. However, he finds a hot race here and drops back in distance after his past three starts at The Gardens and Dapto. There is a stack of pressure on his outside with Ultimate Magic and Still The One frequently the likely leaders. Bear’s Gold is either hit or miss out of the boxes. He was also scratched from a heat of the Adelaide Cup so he has likely missed a scheduled run. There are enough doubts to make Pantera Nera a lay here.
LAY (WIN) Pantera Nera on the Betfair SP
