Leg 1 – Gawler – Race 1: Tahlo To Win $2.30
Tahlo has a great record over this track and trip and she should prove hard to hold out again. Last time out she led from go to whoa and recorded a very smart 37.66 and prior to that she was narrowly beaten by Dusty Gunn at Angle Park who she faces today. The small field should suit and I think she is a better chaser around this circuit, there is no speed at all in the event and the $2.30 looks to be a great price.
Leg 2 – Sale – Race 5: Pride Of Egypt To Place $2
Pride Of Egypt has been racing in consistent fashion of late and he looks well placed in this company. I’m expecting the one and four to lead them up early and with the red wanting to move up the track there should be a fair bit of buffeting. This should allow Pride Of Egypt to settle a little closer than normal and he is very strong in the run to the line. He is a great chance of winning but for multi purposes I think the place is the safer option and even money is a nice price.
Leg 3 – Healesville – Race 7: Teddy Nitro To Place $2.25
Teddy Nitro hasn’t won for a little while and his form doesn’t read all that great but he is highly talented when on song and he should be suited to the wider draw. He will likely miss away but he should get out into some open spaces and he will pick up his stride quite quickly, he has been placed in his only two tries over this track and trip and with a clear run he should figure in the money again.
