Best bets away from Brisbane

Not many prices up at some places as I am typing this so will update after we know more. Probably more keen on some of the brissy races but thinking we can make a profit here.





Gold Coast Race 5 No.1-ONENESS $2.40

Hasn’t got a fresh record but think there have been excuses and not reading into it. Not great speed here and I’d expect him to push forward and sit outside RICH AFFAIR. He is the best 1200m horse in the race and with a moderate tempo has to be the horse to beat. Money speaks with this stable so maybe wait and make sure there isn’t a drift in the market.


Gold Coast Race 6 No.3-TRUE MYTH $10 into $3.80

First run for the Costa camp. Well bred gelding who has decent Melbourne form that stacks up well for a race like this. Another who has speed and I’d expect them to push on and lead or sit outside leader at the very least. Only the one quiet trial since moving north and finished alongside horses like Saxton Rock and Qiji Pheonix. Handy class 1 with Lady Vixen, Paper Trade and co but expecting him to win fresh.


Gold Coast Race 7 No.5- CAMBODIAN PRINCE e/w $5

Not sure why they decided not to run at Grafton in a race I felt they would have won and now race in a more competitive race? That’s a little query for mine. Anyway, the fresh run at this track was very good and then was a pass mark and better than it looked in Saturday grade behind Mr Bellagio and co. Blinkers go back on and if e/w price is bet I’ll get involved.


Flemington Race 4 No.11-NORTHWEST PASSAGE e/w $12 + $3.80

(Ladbrokes promo race below)

Just a small bet here for me but feel he has been very good in fast run races and might get it a bit easier in this. Two runs back he ran 4th in the Bart Cummings behind Avilius, Jaameh and Yogi but they ran it fast that day and he probably would have run third but got a check late in the race. They went pretty quick at Geelong and even though it was favoring those on speed the run was still good and he was strong on the line. Gai will have him screwed right down and has a good recent record in the race.


Flemington Race 9 No.6-RESIN $6

Respecting the likes of I AM EXCITED who is flying but feel this mare is also and deserves her crack at this grade. Very well bred and can settle wherever they like, this look high speed so JMAC with get smothered up somewhere and look to explode late. She has a really good turn of foot and although some can struggle down the straight I’d be very surprised if she doesn’t run very well.
