While things are a lot quieter today, there is still some quality racing – meaning that there are plenty of opportunities to back some winners.
Leg 1 – Gawler – Race 1: Tahlo To Win $2
Tahlo has been racing in very consistent fashion of late and she looks suited in this company. She is armed with early speed and, with the empty draw on her outside and the lack of speed in the event, she should get a fairly cheap lead and that should be the end of the section. She has won here previously in a more than handy 37.85 and on that occasion she held off a very strong Gelignite Jack. The even money on offer is big over’s and you should snap it up early.
Leg 2 – Sale – Race 8: Luca Neveelk To Win $2.40
Luca Neveelk has returned to racing in fine style having won two of his three runs back. The two wins have been over this track and trip and last week he showed a tremendous amount of mid race pace when scoring in 24.83. He is capable of going much faster than that on the clock and from the pink draw tonight he should get every chance to cross in the early stages. There are a few handy ones in this event so you should be able to get around the $2.50 mark or a tad better.
Leg 3 – Mount Gambier – Race 5: Miss Jacovella To Place $1.91
Miss Jacovella doesn’t win very often but she is rarely far away and she hit the line nicely when placed in her heat last week. The draw isn’t great tonight but there is a fair bit of speed underneath, so she should be able to drop in for a nice sit and with a clear passage she should be very strong in the run to the line. She is obviously a great winning hope but for multi purposes I think the place option is safer.
