The big6 for New South Wales punters on Saturday consists of the last three races at Rosehill and Flemington, kicking off with race six at Flemington. Here is my $20 strategy.
Leg 1 – Even race to kick off proceedings. Finishing Card has started twice at Flemington for two unplaced runs, but he is a much better horse now. Led and fought on well at the Valley last week when beaten by Philda. Handles all conditions and should press forward from the barrier for Danny Nikolic. De Mars took off in the Swan Hill Cup and was gunned down late. Meets the winner 3kg better off here. Mr Griswold beat all but iron horse Jungle Ruler last start. Looks perfectly placed here. Titus Vinius might be looking for further, but if the speed is on, he’ll be finishing off well. Moment To Savour has been in excellent form this time in, but his form on dry tracks is a worry.
Leg 2 – Narrowed it down to four. The Verminator was cleverly ridden to win last start and can win again. Code Word has been in awesome form recently and the dry track will only make things better for him. Mikiyama was a bit dour last start after recording an impressive win at his Aussie debut. Only has to carry 51.5kg. Letchworth travelled well in the run, but just plugged away last Saturday. Fitter, watch out.
Leg 3 – I can see four legitimate winning hopes. Secret Flyer enjoyed the hectic pace to win last start at Caulfield. Elusive Touch, if right, would beat these, but he is first up since September and might need this. Gran Sasso was most unlucky last Saturday behind Candle and he loves the straight course. Morgan Dollar is ultra-consistent and looks well welighted thanks to the claim.
Leg 4 – Daintree Road and Dunrossil fought it out last time and look like they’ll do it again. Include Future Solution as well. He blitzed his rivals in the slop on the Kensington track last start, but he looks like he’ll be better suited on a firmer surface. Olly rides and he is drawn beautifully.
Leg 5 – I am going to be brave and stand out Ulundi. Should have bolted in last start at this track over 2000m when beaten in a close finish behind Midnight Martini. Drops back 280m in journey, but he has plenty of upside and he did contest the three-year-old classic races in the Spring. Cheer him home.
Leg 6 – If there looks to be a good thing, it has to be Scarf. Sat three deep for half of the race and lumped 59kg last start at Randwick yet he found plenty to score a great win. Drops 2.5kg in weight, drops back 50m in distance and it’s a very good sign that Nash has been booked. He looks the one to beat.
Leg 1: 5, 6, 7, 8, 12
Leg 2: 4, 5, 9, 14
Leg 3: 1, 2, 3, 6
Leg 4: 2, 9, 12
Leg 5: 6
Leg 6: 5
A $20 investment = 8.33% of the dividend if successful
