Winning Form Best Bets
Race 1: QUEEN’S FAVOUR(7)
Race 3: EGREGIOUS(1)
Race 6: COOL ANNE(1)
Race 8: SPIN A COIN(1)
Race 1: TAARISH(5)
Jockey: Sean VEALE – Trainer: Mike DE KOCK
The gelding certainly did the trick for the De Kock inmate TAARISH. The son of Encosta De Lago had three fair runs prior to being gelded but hardly assisted his jockeys in those starts. He was totally different on his comeback run after the operation and skated clear after racing handy over seven furlongs on this course. He rises in class today but has tons of scope for improvement and will strip much fitter. He will love the extra distance and could easily follow up.
Race 3: EGREGIOUS(1) – TOP BET
Jockey: Anton MARCUS – Trainer: Charles LAIRD
EGREGIOUS continues to improve with each outing and she certainly enjoyed being equipped with blinkers last time out. The daughter of Trippi did things the hard way after racing wide from her poor draw but she was gaining at the finish when beaten half a length at the wire. She finished well clear of the third placed runner and has strong claims of going one better from a good draw. The obvious issue is how she will handle this track.
Race 6: COOL ANNE(1)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS – Trainer: Kumaran NAIDOO
This is yet another interesting event as the likely short-priced favourite, COOL ANNE clearly needs an extra furlong to be at her level best. However, she has Anton Marcus on her side and she meets a very moderate bunch. The daughter of Fort Wood is well above-average and her form shows just that. She ran on well for third over a mile in a strong field in her penultimate outing on this course. She can be excused her latest effort as she tried the left hand turn for the first time. Her handy draw will stand her in good stead today and it wouldn’t come as a surprise to see Marcus take her to the front. She should take some beating.
Race 7: INFINITE WISDOM(1)
INFINITE WISDOM is better around the turn and she also had other excuses for her below-par last run. She was close-up behind GOLDRIDGE over this c & d in her penultimate outing and now meets that rival on 3.5kgs better terms. She was a fluent winner over this c & d under this 2.5kgs claiming apprentice, three runs back and should be very competitive today.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY:
Race 2: ON YOUR BIKE(4) (Each Way)
Jockey: Sean VEALE – Trainer: Mike PAPPAS
This is a competitive contest but there should be lots of early speed and that will suit the long time maiden ON YOUR BIKE. The six-year old has had numerous chances but she has caught the eye on a few occasions with a late rattle, especially on this course. She certainly enjoyed being ridden by Sean Veale in her last outing as she came from some way back to finish runner-up over six furlongs on this track. She now has her third run after the layoff and Veale would have learnt plenty about her and is sure to get stuck into her quite a long way out. She certainly will be running on at the finish and could be a factor against some equally moderate opposition. It is really encouraging that her yard had a winner last Wednesday at Clairwood.
