Saturday ‘On the Punt’

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

*To all those new to Brissyraces we usually have an in depth look at every Brisbane race for the weekend but this is a lot shorter than we would usually do, truth is I’ve spent a lot of time with friends and family so haven’t done as much form and won’t be having many bets myself. Confidence is not high with the big fields around Doomben but there does look to be some value around.

Race 2 No.1-FOMO $8

Really even bunch and just think he’s come back a better horse. Fradd goes on and just need a good ride early to find the right spot. Small e/w is what I’ve done here.


Race 4 No.14-OBERLAND $19

Always had plenty of ability but lost his way and become a non-winner. Weir might have worked him out and he’s won 2 of his last 3 in easier grade in S.A. Lots of speed on here and a lot of the favs have drawn poorly, he will get back but with some luck on the corner he can be one of the strongest late and at $19 I’ve had a small bet.


Race 6: Quinella 1-6-12

OUTBACK BARBIE probably just beats them but gate 14 is some concern and the others won’t be doing her any favours from out there. If she gets some luck she will win. Feel BOOMSARA has built through his prep nicely and should just follow CHESS STAR over from the wide gate and might even land outside leader. PERSAUDER looks a very handy one on the way up.


Race 8 No’s 1- NICCANOVA $5   ++  5-PRIORITISE $18

I do have a lot of respect for the favs in Gaulois and Coldstone but also have a lot of respect for Steve Tregea and he’s had his eye on this race all prep for his horses. I’ve been waiting for NICCANOVA to get to a mile for a long time now and just unfortunate he hasn’t been able to draw a gate, with some luck early he’s the one they have to beat. PRIORITISE has been very good again this prep and from gate 5 I think we will see him race handy and even lead if possible, the $18 seems well over the odds about him.


Race 9 No.17-MANICURE $15 

Will be having a saver INVICIBELLA as she is one of my favs but the gate is some concern and her target is in a couple of weeks time, she can still win. Just feel MANICURE is a nice mare on the way up, she is lightly raced and the trials leading into this will have her ready to run well fresh. Only three runs last prep and was G3 placed twice. She can run better than the odds suggest if Larry gives her a good ride the first 300m.
