Good 3, Rail is at 6m.


The R2W Early Speed Map predicts a Below Average to Average tempo.

Race Overview

The early morning fixed odds markets have four runners at single figure odds whereas the R2W computer has three. This race appeals as a good opportunity to support our top-rated selection one out.

Advantaged Horses

5. Natural Black: Liam Birchley has two runners engaged in this race however there is no doubt that this horse is the clear top pick of the two. This gelding has very nice ability and should have won last time if it was ridden better. Damien Browne goes on today and he should map in the first four runners, definitely the one they all have to beat.

Neutral Horses

5. Hes A Natural: First up off a 66-day break. Has trialled OK for this however will be giving Natural Black a start, can run on into the placings.

7. Snow Fields: Can improve away from Eagle Farm second up and fill one of the placings, maps well.

2. Five Stud Poker: Disappointed first up after having trialled OK. Winkers come off Blinkers go on, could improve on the drier track.

Disadvantaged Horses


Betting Strategy

On current prices there looks to be one potential value bet in the race.
