Best Bets – Sat 16th March


CAULFIELD RACE 8 (1600m) 4:15 pm

Although he is drawn in the car park for this edition of the All Star Mile, I still believe MR BRIGHTSIDE is the best horse in the race and should be able to overcome the obvious issues at hand. Pride Of Jenni will set the tempo and Buffalo River will ensure the speed is on all the way. The field should open up and allow Craig Williams to slot in at some stage and Mr Brightside’s will to win should be on show, to bring up the hat trick of wins.


CAULFIELD RACE 7 (1200m) 3:40 pm

Really like the look of the West Australian four-year-old mare MY BELLA MAE having her first run over here in the east for Seam & Jake Casey with Damian Lane taking the ride. She has Group 1 form-lines behind the likes of Overpass, Munhamek and Oscar’s Fortune over the summer carnival and the 1200m at Caulfield should suit her perfectly. She should get a nice trail in the run and look for her to be the one running over them late.


ASCOT RACE 8 (1800m) 7:50 pm

I’m going with A LOT OF GOOD MEN to turn the tables on Russian To the Bar here in the J.C.Roberts Stakes. Last time out he was caught wide and pushed wider on straightening for home by the winner. He was unsuccessful in the protest but if he had any luck in the run, I feel he would’ve got the money. Hopefully that luck will come this week and we are getting decent odds to find out.


EAGLE FARM RACE 3 (1400m) 12:48 pm

Really like the favorite here in NAVAL TRADER to return to the winners stall for the first time in a while. He is lightly raced and has only missed a place on one occasion. Third-up this time, where he has won third-up previously, he should strip fitter for his last start 3rd over track/distance. Looks like one of the better bets of the day in my eyes.


EAGLE FARM RACE 9 (1200m) 4:27 pm

Going with some value here in STARVIRGO. It’s been a while between drinks for this old fella but he has a solid second-up record and enjoys this distance. Drawn favorably to take a sit on the leaders, if the breaks come in the straight for him. he will be strong to the line. A solid each-way play.
