Echuca | Race 1 | #2 Linas Legend

EXTREME FLIGHT ran on well at Sale in what was a race I think had good depth. I like him out in trip and think he won’t be out of place in Listed grade over spring at 1400m+.

I assess LINAS LEGEND at about the same level, I certainly have some time for him as I backed him both starts, his jump out for this was good but I don’t think he should be so short in this.

STAR MIDFIELDER tracked up nicely on the inside at Caulfield, he also appears to have some talent. With the two mentioned here at better odds, LINAS LEGEND is unders and we’ll oppose at the price.

Betting Strategy

LAY (WIN) — Linas Legend for 1 unit

Echuca | Race 2 | #1 Freddy Mac & #7 Vasbert

I liked the one and only run of FREDDY MAC last time in, he ripped home with shape against him there. Though he was ridden a little out of his comfort zone fresh given what the expected pattern was and he simply found one too strong late. Happy back on firmer footing and with something a little more conservative from the rider.

VASBERT the other of interest. Pushed out to win the recent jump out, Yendall stays on, worth noting the second horse in the jump out was a monty beaten Sunday albeit over the mile.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Freddy Mac for 1.75 units

BACK (WIN) — Vasbert for 0.75 units
