Somerset Maugham looks the likely leader. Led and won easily last start at Sale. Think 1st pick but too short currently. Thought both Allusion and Aray of Sunshine had good chances and Ice Ghost some hope.

Betting Strategy

LAY (WIN) – Somerset Maugham at $2.50 or less to lose 3 units.

Very happy to risk Jonquest here and currently it is $3.70 best. Think it will drift so I would be happy to shop around early on the others. Keep on Bobbing has trialled well recently. Stokes has it and Quietly Discreet in the race. T Pannell goes on Quietly Discreet and I think that is a plus. Maybe it finds the front in a race lacking pace.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) – 2 units win Quietly Discreet.

Cannot Be Serious Dr Dee Dee and Exalted Traveller all look to push forward here. Pearl Bandit has run really well last start and finds a suitable race. Think it can settle a bit handier than it has in its last 2 runs and be hard to beat.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) – 2.5 units Pearl Bandit at $3.80+

Campobasso looks the leader here. Very even bunch in my opinion. Happy to risk Classy Joe. Tibetan got the job done the last start and will improve but too short currently. Ace of Clubs racing well and a good chance ($8 in my market). Coffee Amour goes around after being a late scratching at Oakbank last Saturday. It looks the early value.

Betting Strategy

BACK (EW) – 1 unit each way Coffee Amour
