Resumed in the Gilgai and could not have been ridden any better by McDonald, keeping Chautauqua in the pocket, and that probably sucked the energy out of him late. More upside with him than most from the Gilgai that run here and his recent Cranbourne trial was excellent.
Rosehill Race Seven Number 6 Rustic Melody ($26.00):
Talented mare for Kris Lees who resumes. Her form last season included Group l efforts behind Gust Of Wind and Winx. One is a contender for the Melbourne Cup and the other broke a track record in winning a Cox Plate. Trials have been good and she can run well fresh. $26 is the wrong price.
Doomben Race Five Number 9 Hesitation ($17.00):
SNAP THIS PRICE NOW! $21 was ridiculous, $17 is ridiculous. I am tipping her to start close to favourite. Her first up win at the Gold Coast was huge given she got a long way back but she just savaged the line and the win was arrogant. Given she came home from near last on the turn, she would have had to have run sub 34 for the final 600m. Wrong price.
Morphettville Parks Race Four Number 13 Chin Town ($8.50):
This is more of a comparison price between runners. This filly beat home Materialised by nearly six lengths when they clashed at Balaklava, and she meets that horse 1kg better for that margin, so why she is $8.50 and Materialised is $6.50 is baffling me. Looks great overs for China Town.
