Best Bets – Saturday 25th May


Doomben Race 9 (2000m) 3:57 pm

Do not want the track to get too firm on Saturday for DETONATOR JACK but if it can stay with some of the give in the ground he goes on top. Looked to have won at Hawkesbury last start but was beaten in a blanket finish.

James McDonald has been happy to jump aboard which is a good guide to his chances. This is his first try around Doomben but once again McDonald should get him back in second half and if he can get some cover he should get last crack at them over final 200m.

MOLLY BLOOM was first up for three months last start at Sunshine Coast and she came from well back in the field to go down under 2 lengths. She will have taken benefit from that outing and I’m tipping Blake Shinn will get her to sit closer this time. I think she will take a power of holding off at the finish.

Sandown Race 7 (1800m) 2:45 pm

LETSROLLTHEDICE looks well suited here to win two in a row. He is third-up from spell after winning at Rosehill last time out and should enjoy the extra distance of 1800m where he has a strike rate of 50%. Look for him to go forward and be the one they have to catch.

Benchmark 84

Sandown Race 9 (1400m) 4:05 pm

Will be having something each way on RHEINBERG in this event. He didn’t have a lot of luck last time out when finishing sixth to Chorlton Lane at Caulfield and if the breaks go his way this time he should prove hard to beat at each way odds.

Rating 66+ Handicap

Belmont Race 7 (1200m) 3:50 pm

Hard to go past the unbeaten three-year-old filly in TWAIN’S ANGEL here. She just gets the job done every time she goes out there and from the draw will get every opportunity to sit off the speed and run over them again.
