Townsville R8 – Mixed 1/2 380m
WHAT A BOMBER (7) has recorded five wins on the trot over the 380m and comes against the same rivals again tonight. He just needs a clear run to get the prize. JOHN STRACHIN (5) has struggled of late but did enjoy a purple patch of form earlier this year, recording multiple wins. His best is good enough to worry the favourite and he is a knockout chance.
Gosford R8 – Mixed 4/5 515m
ESTHER’S THRILL defied a betting drift when pinging the lids and leading all the way on debut at the track and distance. With a vacant box next to her again tonight, she will enjoy plenty of room to move and can lead all the way once again at nice odds. PSYCHO SONIC (1) won well at Wenty last start and will trail ESTHER’S THRILL in the early stages. Can he go past her? I don’t think so! The pair can battle out the finish.
Tip: ESTHER’S THRILL @ $3
Warragul R9 – Mixed 4/5 460m
The progressive BIG FONZIE (8) zoomed around the track to win by 9+ lengths over 400m last start and looks ready for the step up to 460m tonight. He jumps, leads and wins. Watch the clock. HUGO (2) has won three times here and has been racing consistently. He looks well boxed and can fill the quinella spot.
