GOSFORD R2 #1 KILLIN $1.74
Short in the market but should be hard to beat today. He has been gelded and recently finished close-up to Syncline in a trial at Newcastle. Syncline has subsequently bolted in yesterday at Taree, winning by 5.8L.
GOSFORD R3 #2 CAMERLENGO $1.46
Trials were good prior to the debut run. Ran well on debut at Canterbury in testing ground, was only collared in the shadows of the post by one from the back. There was a big margin back to 3rd place and the race rated well on the clock for that class. No great odds but should be winning with any luck.
A few chances here. I must give HUNKA HUNKA HARRY another chance, have tipped him a few times now, but he bumped into Miss Amelia first up from a spell. That filly has since franked the form by winning two more races. He then bumped into Quesadilla who has since run well when going up in grade. The latest run at Echuca was a bit disappointing but the winner has since won again. Giving the new kid on the block LOVING GRACIE a good chance to win on debut here, she contested a pretty good trial back in March. Knowles won the trial and she crossed the line with The Mobot who goes fairly well. She looks to be still going well, winning a recent jump-out at Pakenham on the synthetic in good time. Chances do not end there with #2 Catadude going in exotics and #4 Lucky Dozen.
BALLARAT R2 #5 WILSDORF $2.35
I have had my biggest bet of the day on this first starter from the Lindsey Smith stable. I have a bit of time for his stablemate Corner Pocket, so it caught my eye when this colt matched motors with that galloper in a Warrnambool jump-out. Corner Pocket ran well on debut and beat home Catadude, so we should get a good guide on the form from the first race.
I tipped Moshelle De Classe on debut after she caught my eye beating a few winners in a Cranbourne jump-out. She deserves another chance here after not having much luck there at Sale, she was caught wide and was never able to get any cover and still stuck on ok to the line. I liked the trial from PURE PURGATORY when she was ridden but went with Parmie, that galloper has proven better than maiden grade. She has also had a stack of jump-outs and caught the eye on several occasions. #4 APRIL RULES is another filly that has looked good at the jump-outs, goes in all exotics but have not tipped her on top because I feel the other two represent better value.
Giving this five-year-old mare a chance to win here on debut. She won a recent jump-out at Pakenham, beating her stable mate High Hopes. He won a maiden at his last start. This does not look a strong maiden. Giving CROOKED HILLARY another chance, she did a little work early at Pakenham and might finish off stronger today if she can find some cover. Could have finished a little closer last start if was not crowded late.
