Was keen to have a crack at PINYIN at Flemington last Saturday in a hot race but she was an emergency and failed to gain a run but that looks to be a blessing in disguise as she finds herself in much easier company here.
Liked the way she chased home when a close placing first-up and that was in competitive race. She does come back to the 1000m but she has the advantage of 3kg claim from in form apprentice Will Price and if he can have her sitting a little closer when they balance up the long straight at Hillside should suit her and she can finish over the top of these.
Yet to finish any further than second in any of her three second-up runs and she will strip fitter for this.
Happy to use my Price Push on her in this field she is $2.60 with Palmerbet.
RACE RESCUE PLAY
Going to go early with my Palmerbet Race Rescue option in the first of the day and have a try at the Ellerton/Zahra trained filly ZESTY BELLE.
She was an eye catcher in an earlier jumpout and that prompted punters to jump in and send her out as favourite first-up at only her second start in a race at Flemington and after showing solid early speed her fitness told last 200m and she faded into minor placing.
She was still not far away from a couple of smart ones and she looks to find an easier race here.
Expect with that run under her girth she should strip much fitter and at nice each way odds I am looking for her to sit up in the first couple from nice barrier draw and be tough to run down last 200m.
Confident she will at least fill a placing for the Rescue players.
