Leg 1 – Ipswich – Race 8: Hopping Houdini To Place $1.80
Hopping Houdini is a reliable beginner and he loves racing over this track and trip. He hasn’t had a lot of luck in his most recent starts but with a slow beginner underneath and a wide runner on his outside, there should be no excuses for him. He does meet a couple of handy ones tonight though but with a clean getaway I can’t see him missing a top three finish. He is currently great value at $5 to win with Bet365 but for multi purposes I think the place is a safer option.
Leg 2 – Goulbourn – Race 6: Jordanic To Win $1.80
Jordanic is a lid pinger and she returned to the winners list with a slick 22.67 Bulli win last week. She finds herself in a pretty weak race tonight, so if she can do everything right at box rise, she should have the speed to punch through and hold the early lead and if she does find the top that should be the end of the section. She is a little bit skinny at the $1.80 quote but she does appear to be a moral.
Leg 3 – Gosford – Race 8: Tanks Punk To Win $3.20
Tanks Punk hasn’t won for a little while but he is a great talent when on song and he should appreciate the rise in distance. Last time out he showed a return to form with a strong placing behind the exciting Nangar Flame and if you go back through his form, he did record consecutive 30.61 Richmond wins in June/July. If he can recapture that type of form he should assume control mid race and I would expect him to prove too strong for his rivals.
Multi Price = $10.37 with Bet365
