Best Bets – Saturday 2nd December

Sandown Guineas

CAULFIELD Race 7 (1600m) 3:40 pm

ARKANSAW KID looks to be the class runner of this field. Although still to tick the 1600m box, Mark Zahra on board, he should get every chance to run the trip and his class may just give him the edge he needs to get the job done. Drawn to get every chance and he goes on top.

Zipping Classic

CAULFIELD Race 8 (2400m) 4:20 pm

I’m sticking with DUKE DE SESSA to break through here. He now gets a damp surface to show his ability which he has been crying out for all campaign and also now gets the Cup winning hoop in Zahra aboard. He ran a nice race in the Caulfield Cup and although seemed to have every chance last time out at Flemington, I’d give him one more chance to get a win here in Australia.

Jungle Dawn Classic

Ascot Race 8 (1400m) 4:43 pm

Just forget BABY PARIS has gone around the last two starts. She should get all the favours from the low draw and I don’t feel the 1400m will trouble her in any way. She should be able to sit right on the speed and dictate or take a sit. Either way, I think she will be too strong for them late.

Winterbottom Stakes

ASCOT Race 9 (1200m) 5:20 pm

OVERPASS has had a nice freshen up after being beaten 4 lengths in The Everest last time out after leading them for home. He won The Quokka last Autumn here track/distance over Amelia’s Jewel and Bella Nipotina and they certainly would be hard to toss in this race. Looks a leading chance to add another Group 1 to his resume.

Mode Stakes

DOOMBEN Race 7 (1200m) 3:48 pm

ABOUNDING resumed from a spell with a convincing victory over this track/distance. She will only be fitter for that effort and looks to get the gun run throughout. She should be too strong for this field.
