Leg 1 – Bendigo – Race 10: King Size Shambi To Place $2.88
King Size Shambi is a class chaser when on song and he should be able to atone for some luckless efforts in recent weeks. I’m expecting him to miss the kick but that should work in his favour as there is an abundance of early speed drawn in one, two and three, so if he misses away he should be able to drop onto the rail and get a nice run through at the first corner. I don’t think he can reel the red in but with a clear passage he should be able to run home into the quinella spot.
Leg 2 – The Gardens – Race 5: Gracie See More To Place $1.57
Gracie See More is a slow beginner but she does have great track sense and she will be charging home. She has a great record over this track and trip, having won three of 12 and placed in a further five of those runs. There is a fair bit of speed in one, five, six and eight, so I’m expecting there to be some bunching up front and that should allow her to settle a little closer than normal.
Allen Terminator is an exciting talent and although he is short, he does appear to be a good thing. He has won nine of 12 to date and after two defeats he managed to bounce back to form with a dazzling 23.15 Horsham win last week. This race doesn’t feature a lot of early speed, so with a clean getaway he should be able to burn across to the lead and it should be a matter of times and margins from there on.
