2015 Bold Trease heats – best free tips & top bookmaker prices

SUPERSTAR stayer Sweet It Is will be aiming to secure her seventh 1 title when she contests the second of four heats of the Bold Trease at Sandown Park on night.

The daughter of and Off Springer, which took out the race last year, is currently the $2 favourite with Bet365 to claim back-to-back runnings of the $100,000-to-the-winner feature, the final of which will be held on November 20.

Also well in contention is the exciting It's A Plane ($2.75) while Bourbski Fever ($6), Luna Jinx ($8.50) and Spring Trail ($8.50) are also given a strong chance.

It's A Plane will jump from box eight in heat one and be looking to make it three in a row for trainer . He is the deserved $2.15 favourite in a quality field which includes Luna Jinx ($3.50) and the talented Ada Mary ($7.50 with William Hill).

Bourbski Fever comes into the race having won four of her last seven starts, with two recent victories over the track and trip at Sandown Park. The daughter of and Midnight Movie is $4.40 to take out her heat from box one, but does have to contend with the champ Sweet It Is ($1.70) in box five.

The top two from each heat will progress through to next Friday's final.

Very tough heat to kick off the night but with the good draw I have decided to go with It's A Plane. Two runs back he broke the with a dazzling 38.85 win and he then followed that effort up with a great win here. He should be able to avoid early trouble and with a clear run he will take a power of beating.

I am a huge fan of Chrichton Bale and I think he is going to make a great stayer, he has been thrown in the deep end but if he can avoid early bother he should balance up in a forward position and he will prove hard to hold out.

It's hard to ignore Luna Jinx after she destroyed Sweet It Is here last week and in the process she smashed the clock recording an eye popping 41.34. She has trouble putting back to back runs together but that effort was unbelievable.

Ada Mary is the likely pacesetter and she should give a great sight, I don't think this track will suit her but she might be able to hang on for a place.

Sweet It Is will be looking to add another Group 1 victory to her resume and it's hard to tip against her in this lineup. She raced a little flat when beaten here last time out but after two weeks off I'm sure connections have her fired up again and she should be ready to produce, she has panels on this lot and she just needs an ounce of luck.

Zipping Eastwood isn't overly strong over this journey but he should roll to the early lead and I am expecting him to get away from them mid race, he probably can't win the race but he should hang on for a top three finish.

Ryno's Raider has won here previously in a smart 41.89 and he should be in the mix for most of the journey, whilst the one paced Bourbski Flyer should be running home over the top of some tiring runners as they near the finish.

Very open affair and I have given the edge to the likely pace setter in Kilkee Flex. She is yet to win here in five attempts but she has taken on good company in all of those attempts and she looks well placed tonight. She has scored some brilliant wins at The Meadows in recent weeks and if she reproduces those types of sectionals, she should have a nice lead as they turn for home.

Unix Bale has a great record here and she was far from disgraced when placed here last time out. She has good early speed and she should be in the top three for most of the journey.

Shoulders is going to be well fancied but I don't think he will run the trip right out.

Beks and Shanlyn Lucy are the run on types and although they will probably get too far back to win, they must be included in your exotic bets.

Lady Toy is great when on song but she is racing a tad below her best at present.

Top Four: 5 – 8 – 3 – 4

Another open affair and although Dzeko can be costly at times, there is no doubting that she is blessed with enormous talent and if she puts it altogether she will take a power of beating. From the red draw she should be able to settle a little closer to the speed than normal and if she is in the top three or four mid race, she should then make a powerful move and press for the lead. She has a dazzling 41.55 PB here and that type of run would see her win with ease.

Mystic Twist I think is great value, last time out she returned to form with a top 600m placing at The Meadows and I think she can just about lead this event. She is quite strong and she will give a great sight at odds.

Come On Fantasy has a solid record here and she should be in the mix for most of the journey, she isn't the most genuine stayer, but, outside of the red, this race isn't overly strong.

Spring Trail is the up and comer in the event, he didn't do much in his staying debut here in September but he is better than that and he must be respected.

Lithgow Panther is going to be well supported but he just isn't a genuine stayer and from box six he is going to find early bother.

Top Four: 1 – 2 – 5 – 8
