This week’s value selections

Again I am not too keen to preview a whole program interstate but thought it would be good to try and find a few that I think represent a bit of value around the place.

*The usual PUNT guide will be up later Friday.

(These are obviously not ‘good things’, simply some value you may want to consider in exotics)

Sydney Race 2 No.9 – DESERT WIZARD  ($5-6)

*Although many say that is not value I would say that price about him fresh is good value.

*The horse is unbeaten fresh, there is plenty of speed here to let him get home hard and if the rain sticks around the track should be fair and he gets his chance down the middle of the track. Don’t forget he was beaten 2.5L by Fiorente in a G2 at WFA over 1600m.


Sydney Race 3 No.5 – AWESOME ROCK   $17

*I will admit he is up against genuinely good sprinters here and he will be better suited over 1400m, but he is worth thought in trifecta’s at least as he will be very strong late and his latest run was extremely good when wide the entire and made long run.

Sydney Race 8 No.4- HAWKSPUR   $9.50

*Happy to forget the late spring form and can’t get his win from last prep out of my mind. His Turnbull run was also outstanding

*His 2nd up run behind Boban was the perfect lead up to this and I reckon he will give the two big guns a real fright (They obviously deserve the fav tags as they are outstanding)


 Brisbane Race 7 No.1 – THEFT   $15

*The stablemate THE STOREMAN will be extremely hard to beat but no reason Gollan can’t control this race and THEFT sit outside the fav and even though he is first up he should appreciate the 1200m.

*If something can beat the fav it may be him.


Brisbane Race 8 No.4- KURTLEY   $10

*The top two DOCTOR DAVID and BUAKAW are the leading chances but it is significant that that have jockey changes. Wiggins and Colless get off for Wolfgram and Goold. Nothing against those two but the two horses have a great combination with those leading jock’s.

*KURTLEY is an underrated 4yr old who camps just off the pace and will be strong late. He has won 2 from 3 second up and looks value at $10. SINGLE SPIRIT beat him home last time at Armidale and I think she is also a classy animal and in this up to her ears! Thompson stays on her and that is another key point.
