Best Bets – Sat 30th Dec


THE VALLEY RACE 5 (2040M) 2:30 pm

Although DUNKEL is carrying the top weight of 61kgs, he is a Group 1 winner of the S.A. Derby and deserves that kind of weight. He is all class when on song and from the draw he should get all the favours in the run. Hopefully he will see plenty of daylight at the corner and prove too strong in the run home.


THE VALLEY RACE 10 (1200m) 5:40 pm

KIN should be just about cherry ripe third up today to get back into the winners stall. After contesting a Benchmark 84 last time out at Caulfield where she went down by only a length, she now drops back to a Benchmark 78 race. This race seems perfect and look for her to be able to sit off the speed and be the one finishing over them late.


DOOMBEN RACE 4 (1050m) 1:58 pm

EMPEROR will be short but certainly looks to be one of the better bets of the day. Just forget he went around last time if you can, as it wasn’t a pretty watch. Looks to have a bit on these and should be winning.


DOOMBEN RACE 8 (1200m) 4:32 pm

Think PARISAL is one of the better weighted horses today at set weights and at each way odds, I don’t think you can go wrong by having something on him each way. Has been running around in Listed and Group company in recent endeavours which is far superior to this. Also been freshened up since that spring carnival placing and had a tick over trial recently at Rosehill. Blake Shinn takes the reins and we only need a good steer from him to get the cash.


ASCOT (2400m)

Do like NUMERIAN to butter up from last weekend’s run in the Van Heemst and be even fitter now, to take on the challenge of the 2400m Cup. He was taken off the track at the corner in that race and once got balanced up, he put them away quite quickly. Although a few are meeting him better on weights this time around, I still feel he has the class and the improvement needed to win and take the Cup back east.
