WE ARE in for a terrific night of racing with the highlight undoubtedly being the final of the Group 1 Maturity Classic at The Meadows which will see champion sprinter Fernando Bale aiming for his fifth Group 1 title for 2015.
That event is race eight and will jump at 9:43pm – for more information on that race, be sure to check out our betting preview.
Away from the Maturity, there is plenty of quality chasing action all over the country – so we have brought you our best bets to help land you some winners.
Race 6: Lady Toy
Lady Toy has been racing in stellar fashion of late and last week she showed tremendous mid race speed when posting a sizzling 42.77 heat win. I’m expecting the red to hold the early lead tonight so she should be able to get a nice sit in the early stages and with a clear run that should allow her to assume control mid race. This is probably one of the weakest finals she has contested and she should get the cash quite easily.
Race 11: Amaro Bale
Amaro Bale has been taking on some gun chasers in recent weeks and he should appreciate the drop in class tonight. I’m expecting him to go around at the $4 mark with William Hill and for a chaser of his calibre that is a great price. There is a bit of speed in six and seven, so that should allow him to get a nice cart across early and if he can settle in the top two early he should be able to capitalise mid race. He has a great record over this track and trip and this really looks his race.
Race 8: Red Sun Foo
Red Sun Foo doesn’t have great form at present and he can be very hard to follow, however he does have a big engine when switched on and he meets a fairly weak lineup tonight. There appears to be quite a few front runners in this event, so he should be able to sit just off the speed in the early stages and I would expect him to be then powering home. He will be double figure odds and he is definitely worth an each way ticket.
Race 4: 2 to rove with 1 & 8 ($2 for 100%)
More In Store is a highly promising stayer and she has won two of her three starts over this track and trip. She will be suited by the small field and a top two finish is on the cards. Smooth Number is drawn to make an impact, whilst Magic Earner impressed in her staying debut at Sandown Park with a top 41.85 victory.
Race 4: 2,8/2,3,5,8/1,2,3,5,7,8 ($24 for 100%)
Leg 1: 1,3,4,6 – Leg 2: 1,2,8 – Leg 3: 1,4,8 – Leg 4: 5,8
