Wentworth Park R3 – Derby Heat 3 520m
COMPLIANCE (8) was run down in the shadows of the post in the Group 1 Silver Chief last start and has won five from seven overall. A brilliant beginner he can find the early lead and get the prize. MARCH LEGEND (2) won well here last start from box 5 and will enjoy a good run from the check box. He looks the danger.
Tip: COMPLIANCE @ $1.90
Warragul R8 – Group 2 Warragul Cup 460m
The Group 2 Warragul Cup looks like a terrific race. HENNESSEY (2) recorded the fastest heat win from box 2 last week and gets the same box draw tonight. He can find the lure and get the prize. HAMILLSON (1) loves it at Warragul and will enjoy all the favours in the run, while TITAN BLAZER continues to rise to every challenge and gets a great box out wide. Expect the winner to come from one of these three.
Tip: HENNESSEY @ $2.80
Mandurah R6 – Group 2 WA Birthday Cup 405m
BONES MCCOY (1) pushed through to hold the lead in his heat and won by a clear three-length margin last week. He is boxed to win. DESTRUCTION (6) is a flukey beginner who is undefeated over the 405m at Mandurah. If he gets clear running he can make a race of it. The pair can space their rivals.
