Star Of Chaos comes off a solid Vic Provincial win where it led throughout. From the inside barrier, it will lead and be hard to beat. I have it favourite in my market but a fair bit longer than the $2 currently available.

Artful Libby has won its last two at Pt Lincoln very well. It needs to improve again in this but think it can. Hoping it can settle close up and at the current odds available ($15) represents good value each way.

Betting Strategy

BACK (EW) — Artful Libby at $14+ for 2 units each way

Expect that Splash Some Cash will be scratched from this as ran in the Gawler Cup yesterday (not sure why!) Wertheimer resumes for M Hickmott and I have it favourite in a fairly wide market just in front of Boniface. Boniface is another last start Pt Lincoln winner that finds a suitable race. Gets in well after the claim for Ben Price

Betting Strategy

BACK (EW) — Boniface at $6+ for 2 units each way

Happy to risk a few at the top of the weights in this (Street Tough and Terbium) Think they’re both too short in current markets. So You Can bounced back to form at its third run back last start after a lengthy break due to a throat op. Thought its win last start was very good and finds a suitable race. I have it pretty clear favourite in my market. Hoping it drifts a bit as not prepared to jump in at the current price.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — So You Can at $4+ for 3 units

Not overly confident in this but happy to have a small each-way play Jack’s A Cracker. Has the services of Ben Price and gets in 3kg under the minimum.

Betting Strategy

BACK (EW) — Jack’s A Cracker at $14+ for 1 unit each way
