Dapto R5 – Grade 5 600m
WICKED SPARTAN (1) was narrowly beaten last start and from box 1 he can go one better tonight. The fastest dog in the race, he can get out to a big lead and hold on in the run home. TOPPER PHOENIX (5) has a good record at the track and distance and chased strongly to finish a length behind WICKED SPARTAN last time.
Albion Park R8 – Mixed 2/3 520m
I’m tipping an upset here. MAGICAL BILL (1) steps up in distance from 331m to the 520m tonight and has drawn the cherry. An explosive beginner, he can sneak away from his rivals and lead all the way. FARMOR BEACH (3) returned to form with an impressive win over 600m last start and drops back in trip. He has been hit and miss at box rise of late and will struggle for a clean getaway. I am happy to risk him at the odds on quote.
Tip: MAGICAL BILL @ $7.50
Hobart R8 – Best 8 461m
SPRINT GORDON (2) has won his last three and has a terrific record around the Hobart circuit. Expect him to sit just behind the leaders early before powering late. RED TITAN (7) brings terrific form into the race, but does his best racing from the inside part of the track If he can navigate across he will be hard to hold out. The pair can battle out the finish.
