Ratings2Win –

Chris Nelson – @qldtrials – Eagle Farm – Race 6 # 7 Real Cute 

Nelson Says: “Second favourite in the markets this morning behind a very smart type resuming in Secret Mo. Whilst the track condition today (Soft) will suit her she will find this a tougher task than her last start second at the Sunshine Coast. She’ll need to bring her ‘A’ game today however as we’ve seen in the past she does tend to mix her form. Can’t see her troubling the favourite. ”

Punting Form –

Shane Baker – @PuntingForm – Eagle Farm – Race 7 #1 All Summer Long

Baker Says: “Ex Greg Bennet galloper now with M J Dunn at Murwillumbah. Faces the Eagle Farm track for the first time and will have to lump 62 kg from barrier one. There seems to be quite a few horses which just cannot quicken on the Eagle Farm surface in its current state. The rail is out 12m which may help from barrier one, or it may allow other runners to more easily get to better ground out very wide. Without having to travel over too much extra ground to get there. Will all these uncertainties and being up against horses with good performances at the track, All Summer Long looks to be a clear favourite worth risking.”

Paul Daily – @PaulD01 – Eagle Farm – Race 7 #1 All Summer Long

Daily Says: “Has had a charge of stable since its last start 38 days ago and appears here for the first time for Matthew Dunn. Whilst competitive in two of his last three runs, the figures recorded in those events when considering today’s 62kg impost fall short of the required benchmark for winning this race. The current fixed odds of $2.80 lack appeal so I’m happy to oppose.”

Rick Williams Racing –

Rick Williams – @rwilliamsracing – Eagle Farm – Race 7 #1 All Summer Long

Williams Says: “Will be back in the field here from the inside draw which is always a challenge. Has to do it with a big weight and ranks poorly on most of the KPI figures for a horse who is currently $2.80”


John McLeod – @macbetjohn – Eagle Farm – Race 8 #7 All That Is

McLeod Says: “Despite an OK record on soft rated tracks looks under the odds at single figures each-way for a mare that’s up in class off an awkward draw. Happy to risk!”

Racing Watch –

John Walter – @J_Walter23 – Warwick Farm – Race 3 #1 Paragon

Walter Says: “Hard and tough stayer that has been doing a good job over further on wet surfaces. Back to the dry surface here very unlikely to get control of the race, rider change and back in distance all look queries against. Happy to risk him at the early quote. ”

Champion Bets –

Nathan Snow – @snowbet –  Warwick Farm – Race 4 #4 Jolie’s Pearl (Place)

Snow Says: “Won two very ordinary Hawkesbury races last prep before failing in town. Resumes off some lacklustre trails and finds a race with a few going quite well.”

Horse Racing Professionals –

Geoff McMurray – @mcmurray_geoff  – Balaklava – Race 1 #6 Pujols

McMurray Says: “At around even money Pujols looks a terrific lay. The horse has only placed in 5 of 13 starts and this will be its ninth run this preparation so there isn’t much upside. Connermara Rose and Le Dupe last couple of runs have been good and appear to both have more scope to improve than the favourite. For those reasons happy to take on Pujols.”

Ben Krahe – @racebk_com – Maryborough Harness – Race 8 #5 Repeat After Me

Krahe Says: “Won well at Echuca from a second row draw however that was a C2-C4 race, no luck last week in a much harder race at Yarra Valley when 10th of 11. Draws better today however the rise in two grades here from its last win means I’m happy to take it on if its favourite or even close to favourite.”

Racetrack Ralphy –

Ralph Horowitz – @rtralphy – Warrnambool – Race 3 #12 Millie The Missile

Horowitz Says: “”Beware the over-bet luckless runner” as she obviously was on viewing the replay of her last start at Cranbourne, but that was start six for her first prep, so she’s had other chances to break through and hasn’t. Every possible chance the previous start same track/distance off a “sleepy” ride when 3rd at Sandown in a walking tempo 1300. Taking on two of Weir’s who look solely set for this race to peak and as such the low two odds in the morning line look based on vision rather than substance, so as such despite the elite Lane riding will take on”
