UNFORTUNATELY we have hit a little flat patch this week, but today I have gone with the safer option with all three legs only needing to fill a placing. I am confident we can get a collect and boost our confidence as we head into the weekend.
Leg 1 – Shepparton – Race 7: Mary’s Guess To Place $1.67
Mary’s Guess is a lid pinger and she has been racing in consistent fashion here of late with two placings from her past three starts. One of those efforts was from this draw and on that occasion she flew the lids and crossed easily. Tonight I’m expecting her to do the same and if she finds the top early she should have no trouble finishing in the top three. Her last 50m is terrible but she really should get a nice break on her rivals and she looks a safe bet for the place.
Leg 2 – Shepparton – Race 5: Spur Tron To Place $2.88
Spur Tron has been struggling of late but today he is facing a significant drop in class and he is ideally drawn in the pink. There is a fair bit of speed in the middle, so I’m expecting them to bunch up a little and that will allow him to swoop around and he should then settle in the top two or three, he is quite strong in the run home and at the $2.88 price with Bet365 he is great value.
Leg 3 – Sandown Park – Race 8: Margins To Place $1.83
Margins is a class act and he recently represented Victoria in the National Sprint Final at Wentworth Park. He didn’t have a lot of luck in that final but tonight he finds himself in a much more winnable event and he is actually drawn to get the run of the race. I’m expecting him to miss the kick but that should work in his favour, as he should be able to drift across and find the rail and with the inside division expected to lead he should be able to balance up in fourth or fifth. He is extremely strong in the run to the line and with an ounce of luck he should go close to winning, at $1.83 for the place I think he is a safe bet and great value.
Multi Price = $8.80 with Bet365
