Canberra trainer Matt Dale has a strong chance to qualify a starter for the Country Championships final at Goulburn tomorrow.
Dale will have three starters in the Qualifier and online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au is betting $1.75 that one of them will be first home.
In a wide betting race Dale will saddle $7.00 favourite Karakuchi, Northern Fury ($9.00) and Hermosa Beach ($8.00).
On Sunday, at Scone, trainer Greg Bennett is also favourite to cement a place in the Randwick final with at least one of his runners.
Bennett’s four starters are $1.45 to win the race and the rest of the field $2.60.
His best chances appear to be $4.40 equal favourites All Summer Long and Clearly Innocent.
“Greg Bennet and Matt Dale are strong stables and they will have set these horses to be spot on for the qualifiers. They both have strong hands on the weekend and are pulling out all stops to get horses to the Randwick final,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
