Peter’s Picks – Monday 17th February

It may be Monday, but it also provides a great chance to win back the extra wallet holes created on the two days prior. There is a nice Group final to get worked up about, as well as meetings all over the country, so unwind on these before work-mode really sets in.

Launceston Race 4 Number 1 Mighty Serious

Launceston takes centre stage tonight with the cup final, but punters should look towards an earlier event to get on the board. Mighty Serious look awfully hard to beat in the short course event for the night after drawing the rails in a weak field. It’s never missed a place at this trip, so won’t be much value, but hopefully smart investors can get near even money and enjoy an early collect.

Angle Park Race 6 Number 8 Springvale Cool

Has been out of the winners circle for a while, and not his favourite box, but it’s only a matter of time before this dog wins again. He’s a genuine FFA sprinter at his best, and this is the easiest competition he’s had for a long while. With any luck from eight, he wins well.

Shepparton Race 7 Number 3 Clone Your Own

The Group-winning former Kiwi stands out like a sore thumb on this program, and should win the fast-class race. He’s previous three runs at Shepparton have yielded two wins, and with a clear run early and customary finishing burst, that record will improve.

Mandurah Race 6 Number 6 Powerhouse

Time to finish on a big note. Powerhouse is a dog with a lot of ability and while he does have a knack of finding trouble, is now overdue for a win. This race may be a bit short and he will need luck from the box, but at odds of around $6.00, it represents value for a dog that would destroy them at his best.
