Race 5 — Prince Turbo

Confident the Fresh Prince Of Belmont should be ready to peak third-up. Neither his first nor second-up performance jump off the page, but both were extremely noteworthy when snagged from wide gates on hot rails.

Faces an easier task here, rises to the mile and importantly the shades go on. Looking for him to burn across from the sticky gate and land behind Fuhrer and Majinika. Think he has the most upside.

BACK (WIN) – Prince Turbo

Race 8 — Dark Mission

I don’t have the emotional scars that most do from a week ago (2.4 to sub even money) with this talented mare, allowing me to hop in guilt-free. Was the beneficiary of a farcically run race (nearly 9 lengths slower than benchmark to the 600), which was never going to suit her style of racing.

I like the one-week back-up (intent) and the rise to 1400m, and with this being in the second last race of the day, we can wait to make sure the rail isn’t red hot. If the middle of the track is playing anywhere near fair, I’m very confident she returns to the winner’s stall.

BACK (WIN) – Dark Mission


Daniel Cripps

Race 3 — Billy Ain’t Silly

Really strong winner last start and the runner up in that event has subsequently cantered in. From gate 1 expect him to lead and be hard to catch. Respect for the current favourite but I believe the early market is upside down.

BACK (WIN) – Billy Ain’t Silly

Race 5 – Fuhrer

Tough on pace runner who was back to his best last start when leading and demolishing a mid-week field. Up in class but reunites with regular rider Mitch Pateman. He will have him right over the speed and from there he can make his presence felt.

BACK (WIN) – Fuhrer
