Best Bets – Sat 20th Jan

RATING 84+ TROPHY

ASCOT RACE 6 (1500m) 3:40 pm

Just forget that STARRY HEIGHTS went around last time out. He got caught up in the pack and by the time a run came in the straight the race was all over. Had a picket fence going before that run and if he can get a better run in transit should return to winners stall.

BM78 HANDICAP

FLEMINGTON RACE 5 (1100m) 2:30 pm

Probably D-day for KIN, but this race is well and truly within her grasp. Last time out at The Valley she was caught wide throughout and never gave up the chase. She should get a cosy run in behind them down the straight and hopefully get a clear shot at them late and prove too strong for them.

BM70 HANDICAP

FLEMINGTON RACE 8 (2000m) 4:20 pm

In a very wide open race, going to have something each way on WHAKAMANA. Three starts back she was well in the market behind the well credentialed First Immortal and then went out for a spell. Now she has had the two runs back, the 2000m of Flemington should suit her nicely. Although drawn out in the car park, she usually gets back so that shouldn’t be too much of a concern and look for her to be strong late.

THREE-YEARS-OLD HANDICAP

EAGLE FARM RACE 3 (1300m) 1:23 pm

Although PAYLINE is still a maiden, looking at his last start third a fortnight ago at the Gold Coast behind the impressive Barassi, it shouldn’t be long before the breakthrough comes. He gets back usually in the run and will be hitting the line strong late. This looks a winnable race.

THREE-YEARS-OLD HANDICAP

EAGLE FARM RACE 10 (1300m) 1:23 pm

Hard to go past FREEDOM RALLY. Even though he hasn’t been to the mile as yet, he seems to have lengths on the opposition going on his last run when second to Tamerlane in the Buffering over 1350m. Loves the Eagle Farm track winning four times here and the map looks as though he will get the gun trip in behind the speed from the draw. If he settles in the run, he will prove the one they will have to beat.
