Today's Ratings




Good 3yo race considering only 8 runners. Can’t find any natural pace in this. Not sure Another Award will be keen to take up the running but may be left in front.

Crown Mint was plain 1st up but will improve. Struck By Me got the job done last start in a pretty weak affair. Back in trip for this and a chance.

The winner should come from one of the top 3 but think Another Award pretty clearly 1st pick.

 Betting Strategy 

BACK (WIN) — Another Award at $2.80+ for 3.5 units

Another good 3yo race but again a bit light on the numbers. Not a lot of pace here either. Great Diviner couldn’t have been more impressive last start when winning on debut.

Baraconi resumes off a short freshen up. It hasn’t trialled or jumped out officially. Not sure the 1200m is its best trip.

Outlaws Revenge also resumes off a short freshen up. It has had 2 jumpouts to prepare for this.

 Betting Strategy 

BACK (WIN) — Outlaws Revenge at $3.00+ for 3.5 units

Big field here but again doesn’t appear to be a lot of pace. Rustydustygrey may find itself in front and Dawn Salute probably pushes forward. In a really even race thought there were a couple of middle pinners worth a bet.

 Betting Strategy 

BACK (WIN) — Justica at $15+ for 1 unit

BACK (WIN) — Morty at $15+ for 1 unit

Pace looks to be ok here. Dyalgilev, Dr Dee Dee, Splash Some Cash and It’s Magic should all push forward. I would expect It’s Magic to take up the running. Good Girl Bella won well last start. No claim today and steps up to the 1800m.

Puissance Dusoleil won well last start and looks suited over this trip. It had some encouraging 3yo form last prep. Worsfold was ok last start and also looks to be suited over this trip.

 Betting Strategy 

BACK (EW) — Puissance Dusoleil for 1.5 units each way at $10+
