Leg 1 – Angle Park – Race 9: Alderley Reform To Win $1.70
Alderley Reform has won 21 races over this trip and with an ounce of luck tonight he should make it 22. He meets a solid lineup tonight but the smaller field is a big advantage for him and the speed dogs drawn in seven and eight are both wide runners. I’m expecting him to settle midfield but he should make a strong move mid race and he should score quite comfortably. Bet365’s $1.70 is big overs and I’m expecting to start $1.50 or even shorter.
Leg 2 – Ballarat – Race 6: Cosmic Daicos To Place $1.80
Cosmic Daicos has been struggling of late but he is stepping up in distance and that should suit him. In recent weeks he has been taking on some quality opposition and due to missing the kick he has not been able to get into the race. I’m expecting him to miss it away again today but he should be able to whip around them mid race and build up a nice lead, the last 30m is a small concern but he should have enough in the tank.
Leg 3 – Ipswich – Race 9: Stargate System To Win $2.55
Stargate System is a very strong chaser and this is probably the easiest race he has contested for quite some time. I’m expecting the one, four and seven to battle for the early lead and he should sit just behind them. The leading division are all weak in the final stages over this journey, so if Stargate System gains a clear passage he should prove too strong in the run home. The $2.55 at present with Bet365 is a nice price and he should probably start closer to odds on come race time.
