Leg 1 – Bendigo – Race 5: Jazaan’s Boy To Win $2.35
Jazaan’s Boy is having his first look at the track but he appears ideally drawn in the pink and he is blessed with an explosive turn of foot. He tends to go straight soon after box rise, so if he can step cleanly he should stay out there and out of trouble. Last time out he was narrowly beaten at Warragul in sizzling time and he should appreciate the drop in class today.
Leg 2 – Geelong – Race 8: Fleet Return To Place $2.62
Fleet Return is a super talent when on song and with the early speed in the red, he appears drawn to get the run of the race. Two starts back he set the track alight at Warragul with a blistering 25.79 win and a repeat of that effort would see him win at nice odds tonight. He can miss away at times, so that is a small concern but he does pick up very quickly and the red should give him a nice cart into the race. The $2.62 for the place is a great price.
Run Velocette doesn’t have great form but he is returning to his favourite track and he should be suited to the wider draw. He has won four of eight here and outside of the red, this is a very weak race, so if he can step on terms he should balance up in the first three or four and he is very strong in the run home. I think he can win the race but he will face some stiff opposition from the red so the place option is a little safer.
