Geelong R8 – Hugh Emmerson Memorial Heat 2 460m
JUNK FOOD JUNKIE has won two from her last three, including an all the way win at Geelong over 400m. She was a best of the night winner at Bendigo last start who looks ready to step up to 460m tonight. Expect her to lead all the way. MEPUNGA PEGASUS (2) is a two-time track and distance winner who has been doing his recent racing over further ground at the Meadows. He will be strong late and looks the danger.
Richmond R8 – Mixed 4/5 400m
PURE SWIPER (5) couldn’t find the lead last week and had to be satisfied with finishing second. Prior to that, she has recorded four all the way wins at Richmond over the 400m and she can ping the lids tonight with some slow beginners drawn to either side. I’m with her. RACHEL’S REVENGE (7) is chasing a hat trick of wins after a best of the night victory last week. The pair should space the rest.
Tip: PURE SWIPER @ $3.5
Sale R8 – FFA 440m
This looks a really competitive FFA. FLYWHEEL BELLA (6) and SWEET DEMI (7 ) have both been in great form and love the 440m at Sale. FLYWHEEL BELLA has superior box speed and should cross to the lead with SWEET DEMI to her outside. SWEET DEMI will have work cut out for her getting past FLYWHEEL BELLA in the straight and I don’t think she can. TIPPA (1) can get a nice run along the inside and capitalise on any mistakes out wide. They look the only three winning chances.
