Race 1: 2. REGAL RANSOM is the favorite and running at such cramped odds is only due to the company or the lack of it. In saying so he is a average horse and at these odds is a big risk as the track movements are average too. The horse that has got my attention is 1. MARCEGALIA in race 205 had a easy forward run and matched strides till the final furlong with S of Washington.
Today drawn 2,some excellent track work under his belt has a very realistic chance. If the connections take a chance today the horse will win.Make note L Marshall rode a winner for the same connections at long odds on Act Smart in race 229 so why not today also make note he is a full brother to Steelium.
Tips:1. MARCEGALIA (eachway)(place certain), R Ransom
Race 2: Very open race but the winner should come from 2-5-9-10. SHOOT A RAINBOW seems a nice type but needs more distance. NOBLE VIEW is a failed favorite twice has a stronger rider today and will be in the thick of things. CAPRIOSKA is from a gambling stable and the flow of money will decide his faith.Lastly FLAIR QUEEN has been the best on track has failed twice again but today will be suited by the underfoot conditions specially if it rains.
Tips: FLAIR QUEEN , Noble View, Shoot rainbow
Race 3: Going by track movements and form SAFARI should not have any trouble handling this set.
Race 4: RIMPUCHE should get ther better of VALIANT BAY who needs a bet more distance SOUND OF NATURE has the potential to upset the two but L dsilva's horses rarely win first up.
Race 5: In my opinion going by trackwork MARK OF GIBRALTAR will give SET ALIGHT a run for her money the field suggest that the pace will be sharp hence the jockeys nerve will decide the faith of the race.
Tips: Mark of Gibraltor, Set Alight Upset: ROYAL AMBER
Race 6: ON A ROLL has the best credentials to win here from CELESTIAL SON . LITTLE SPLENDOUR has been tracking very well and can upset the lot. a race best to avoid.
Tips: On a Roll,C Son Upset: LITTLE SPLENDOUR
Race 7: Very open race but AGASSIZ has the class to pull it of the ovvious danger is EL GORDO
Race 8: Open race but the winner should come between VALID BID or MAFIOSO My money is on the former.
Favorites that should win: Safari/Rimpuche/Celestial Son/Agassiz
Eachway bets: Valid Bid/Maf of Gibralter/Flair queen/Marcegalia
Upset of the Day: Act Smart
