Bet One- Win- Taree Race One Number 14 Unguarded:
Thought she was the best of the day. Richard Freedman trains this filly, who does look as if she could be a staying sort of filly, so I wouldn’t put the pen through her as an Oaks horse. Two runs in the Winter, both in strong 2YO races in Sydney, were quite good, warming to the task nicely late. Good enough in a recent Warwick Farm trial. If Adkins can take advantage of the gate, she’ll be winning.
Suggested Bet: $50 Win at $3.30 (TAB)
Bet Two- Win- Taree Race Two Number 6 Ted’s Dream:
Second of two good things at Taree and it comes in the second race. Just ran out of condition first up at Coffs Harbour before going to Kempsey where I was quite keen on his chances but bumped into Sunreel, who won like a very good at Newcastle on Thursday. That form reads very well for this and third up, he should be hard fit, ready to go.
Suggested Bet: $40 Win at $2.80 (TAB)
Bet Three- Each Way- Taree Race Seven Number 10 Allzin:
Perhaps flattered by a lightweight apprentice steering, but the trial win at Taree was very good to the eye. Sat last, peeled the widest on the turn and let down nicely to get the win. Graham Hoy doesn’t mind resuming this horse at a staying trip and I could easily make a case for him and have something on at the double figures.
Suggested Bet: $10 E/W (Tote)
Bet Four- Win- Ballarat Race Four Number 6 Romelo:
Keen on Romelo. This bloke has really transformed his career since joining Eric Musgrove, producing really good efforts on the flat but was purchased with jumping in mind and he made his debut last week at Warrnambool where he looked to jump pretty good for the most part and won impressively. Confident he can measure up, and the wet track certainly no issue.
Suggested Bet: $40 Win at $2.80 (Neds)
Bet Five- Win- Ballarat Race Six Number 2 Sea King:
With the wet track, it’s clearly advantage Sea King in what should be an epic edition of the Crisp. Beaten fair and square by Wells two back in the Mosstrooper on a firm track, something he hates, before a gutsy effort in the Grand National. Was in the mix in this race last year but sold out at the second last. Pateman on and he does look as if he’s been set for this race. Happy to be with him.
Suggested Bet: $30 Win (Tote)
