Best Bets – Sat 23rd March

Alexandra Stakes

The Valley Race 6 (1600m) 2:55 pm

MOLLYNICKERS is third-up today and she should be ready to break back into the winners stall. She kept grinding away last time out at Flemington and may have been that one run short, so no excuses here. Look for Ben Melham to give her every opportunity in behind the speed and be the one they will have to hold off at the line.

Alister Clark Stakes

The Valley Race 7 (2040m) 3:35 pm

Although he has drawn poorly, the lightly raced RISE AT DAWN, a winner of three from four starts, may just be the one on the rise and going off his two runs back this time in, he is certainly up to these. They will more than likely push forward on him from that draw and if can get across without doing too much work, he may be the one here at nice odds.

William Reid Stakes

The Valley Race 8 (1200m) 4:15 pm

I’m sticking with IMPERATRIZ here, even though she has an awkward draw. She has proven this time in, she is as brilliant in front as shown in the Manikato and coming from behind as in the Moir, so let’s leave it to Opie Bossom to work out how to win this one. She is pure class and just loves The Valley.

Open Handicap

Eagle Farm Race 9 (1600m) 5:08 pm

Hard to go past the ever consistent DAYTONA BAY here. He has had a win and three seconds in all his four runs to date here in Brisbane and all he needs to do is bring that form here again, from the low draw he should prove very hard to beat.

Ascot Race 6 (1000m) 3:35 pm

WILD BELLE was just brilliant in winning the Miss Andretti at Pinjarra before going for a spell. She has won twice fresh and if she brings that kind of performance here to Ascot, she’ll be winning this race first-up.
