Warragul R5 – Grade 5 400m
This looks like a good old fashioned match race. PAUA OF JANIE (3) began her career brilliantly with five wins from five starts in Wagga and looked good when leading all the way on Victorian debut, leading all the way over 460m at Warragul. Back to 400m tonight, she can find the front and lead all the way. BLACKPOOL FLASH (7) has a better than 50% win strike rate and will cross over and pour the pressure on throughout the race. PAUA OF JANIE might be a superstar and I’m backing her to go seven from seven. The pair have lengths on their rivals.
Gosford R8 – Mixed 4/5 515m
ESTHER’S THRILL (6) had no luck when checked at Wenty last start and it was a total “forgive” run. Prior to that she had won back to back races at The Gardens and should have no problems finding the top in the small field tonight. Expect her to get out to a big lead down the back and hold on in the run home. KAYDEN’S CHANCE has two wins over the 515m at Gosford and will get his chance to sneak up along the rails. He looks well placed for the quinella spot.
Lismore R9 – Mixed 4/5 420m
I’m tipping a minor upset her. TWEED PRINCESS (1) won at her only other 420m Lismore run and does her best racing from the inside boxes. She can hold the lead and prove hard to catch at nice odds. INFLUENTIAL (7) brings the best form into the race but was a flop from box 7 last start. Jumping from the black rug again tonight I’m happy to oppose him at the short price.
