Winning Form Best Bets
Race 1: ACASTUS(3)
Race 2: DISKI(1)
Race 9: OCTOBER ELEVENTH(10)
Race 10: WINTER GLORY(1)
Race 6: FREUDIANA(1)
Jockey: Anton MARCUS – Trainer: Frank ROBINSON
FREUDIANA is lightly raced and is coming along the right way. She won her maiden in her comeback run over a mile second time out. Then, she overcame a slow start and ran on strongly for the runner-up spot over ten furlongs at Greyville on her handicap debut in early November. The daughter of Black Minnaloushe is clearly above-average and has lots of scope for more improvement. She takes on a moderate line-up and should go very close, despite shouldering top weight. The slight concern though, is that she is yet to race in soft underfoot conditions.
Race 8: ASSEGAI(9)
Jockey: Alec FORBES – Trainer: Alistair GORDON
ASSEGAI is lightly raced and he is coming along the right way. He won his maiden in his comeback run over seven furlongs in his penultimate outing and then stayed on nicely for third over a mile on his handicap debut, five weeks ago. He should be cherry-ripe on his third run back today and his pedigree suggests that he will love the extra distance. He jumps from a handy draw and could be the right one in this field.
Race 9: OCTOBER ELEVENTH(10) – TOP BET
Jockey: Anton MARCUS – Trainer: Sean TARRY
OCTOBER ELEVENTH produced a smart debut over this trip in soft conditions at Clairwood, four weeks ago. The Tarry inmate showed pace on that occasion but was outrun late into second,beaten 2.25 lengths at the wire. He would have come on considerably with that effort and should make plenty of natural improvement. Anton Marcus gets the ride.
Race 10: SISSY GRAY(2)
Jockey: Stuart RANDOLPH – Trainer: Michael ROBERTS
SISSY GRAY is lightly raced and she showed good improvement over this c & d, four weeks ago. She stayed on strongly for a close third on that occasion and should have lots more to offer today.
VALUE BET FOR TODAY:
Race 4: GEMINI GOLD(5) (Each Way)
Jockey: Stuart RANDOLPH – Trainer: Dennis BOSCH
GEMINI GOLD has shown promise in his last three starts and has more room for improvement. He raced wide in each of his last two starts but stayed on well over this trip on those occasions, despite being drawn wide. The son of Overlord is blessed with a good 2 draw today and that could make a huge difference. He should be very competitive.
