Value Bet: AEECEE BEAU (Race 7)
Jackpot (race 5 – 8).
SUPREME LEADER showed solid improvement to win his maiden race by 2.7L last time out over 1500M and the form of that race has been franked. He jumped awkwardly that day, but recovered well to kick clear of the opposition at the 300M mark and was eased down approaching the winning post. He is drawn the widest of them all in gate twelve, but on the plus side he will get 2kgs taken off his back thanks to his claiming apprentice. He takes on stronger here, but he may well be up to the task at hand. CROSSCUBE has only had the two runs to date, winning on debut over 1350M and then finishing fifth next time out when stepping up to seven furlongs, nearly three lengths back from the winner. He tried to go from jump to wire that day and from a wideish gate eight, he is likely to adopt similar tactics today. WILD IRISH is a 3yr old filly taking on males, but she stayed on well after coming four wide into the home straight before ending up in sixth place last time out over 1550M, nearly four lengths adrift of the victor. She jumps from draw five and represents the ex-SA pair of trainer David Payne and jockey Keagan Latham.
The day’s best bet, SNITZARI is a 3yr old filly taking on males, but she won her penultimate start over 1110M and was then reported to have finished lame when eleventh next time out over the same c&d, nearly seven lengths adrift of the winner, so that effort is best ignored. Notwithstanding that, the form of that race has stood up well with five runners out of that contest subsequently winning. She returns here after having had an 11 week rest and the benefit of two barrier trials. She gets gate seven and 3kgs removed from her allocated weight courtesy of her claiming apprentice. AMERICAN SALUTE came wide into the home stretch and then was hanging in over the latter stages before finishing eight in his last outing over five furlongs, 7.2L behind the winner when returning from a 19 week break. The gelding get gate three and will be hoping to bounce back to some of his better form today. UNDENIABLE is another 3yr old filly in the race. She stayed on well when second in her latest run over 1100M, 0.8L behind the winner. She has drawn the widest gate of them all in eleven, but will have 2kgs taken off her back for the services of her claiming apprentice and is likely to be doing her best work late.
Three claiming apprentices could fight out the finish to this race and complete the trifecta, but the day’s value bet, AEECEE BEAU is taken to lead the pack home. He came three wide into the home straight, but still made good late progress to finish second in his last outing over six furlongs, a half length behind the winner. He has his peak run here after returning from a lengthy 41 week absence and whilst draw wide in gate ten, he should be right up there when they hit the line with his 1.5kg claiming appie. EYE SEE THINGS is a 4yr old filly taking on boys, but has a bigger 2kg weight relief and has posted consistent recent formlines, finishing second in her latest outing over six furlongs, just under a length back from the winner. She was bumped at the start that day, but stayed on well over the closing stages of the contest. She will have to negotiate gate eleven, but she should give the males a good run for their money. BRIARS KINGDOM has only had the two runs to date, finishing third on debut over six furlongs and then showing the expected improvement to win his next start over the same trip by nearly half a length, this despite hanging out over the latter stages. He is drawn one outside the latter and gest the 1.5kg apprentice allowance.
KARMAZONE showed marked improvement when finishing third last time out over 1550M, 2.3L off the winner. He finished off his race strongly that day and if he has continued down that same path of improvement, he could be the one that they all have to beat. He is drawn wideish in gate nine, but will get 1.5kgs removed from his back thanks to his claiming apprentice to help his cause. PEEKAYS LEGACY won his maiden race last time out over a mile by a short-head, but it should be noted that he had to be checked off the heels of other runners at the 1200M pole and then came four wide into the home straight. He hit the front at the 200M mark that day and then held off all the late challengers over the closing stages. He is drawn one outside the top choice and should not be lightly dismissed in this line-up. RUKITA is a 4yr old filly taking on males, but she had to be held up in the early stages and then only saw daylight at the 200M mark before finishing strongly to end up in third spot in her latest start over 1500M, 4.7L behind the winner. She was returning from a 16 week rest that day and from her cozy draw four, she should be included in all bets.
