Adam Page gives us his tips and selections for today’s racing at Moonee Valley racecourse and Walcha racecourse, view his tips.
Walcha Race Five: Number Four Master Danny
Trained by Neil Godbolt at Port Macquarie, this four-year-old gelding has always shown he has ability. Hadnâ€™t really showed that until last start at Taree when he led and fought on well when finishing second behind runaway winner Nothinâ€™ Leica Dame, who has franked that form by running a strong second earlier this week. Master Danny has drawn barrier six and from that alley, Robert Thompson can either lead or take a sit. The 59kg is a slight worry but at his best, heâ€™d make mince meat of these.
Walcha Race Seven: Number Seven Zattero
This seven-year-old has had two runs back from a spell. First up, he worked home ok at Gosford behind Songbird Lane then bumped into Xaarmelody when making up good ground over the final furlong. Drops back in journey which is a slight concern, but the pace should be on for him and if he gets a nice trail into the race, watch for him to be rocketing home at the end.
Moonee Valley Race One: Number Six Almindoro
Arguably Australiaâ€™s best horse without winning a race, but that should change tonight. Raced against the best three-year-old stayers last campaign. He did finish second in the Norman Robinson on Caulfield Cup day and that is a Group three race. 1519m is not an ideal distance, but he ran a good race last start behind the next superstar in racing, Under The Eiffel. I think class gets this horse home tonight.
Moonee Valley Race Three: Number Seven Count La Za
Finally he won last start at Mornington and now that he has won a race, he can go on with it. He has shown ability since day one but just hasnâ€™t put it all together until last start when he got momentum up before the home turn and kicked clear for a well deserved maiden win. Steps straight up to City class and I think that is a very good lead because David Hayes rarely sends them to town after a maiden win if he doesnâ€™t think they can perform well. Not a strong race here and based on his racing style, heâ€™ll lap up the 3000m.
