Bendigo R6 – Mixed 4/5 425m
ZITA (1) has had six runs over the 425m at Bendigo for a win and five seconds but has drawn box 1 for the first time tonight. She should be about to reach peak fitness after a couple of recent runs and looks hard to beat. MAJOR MINTER (4) has pinged the lids to win his last three runs over the short course and is drawn to find the lead. The 425m looks a challenge, but I expect him to fill the minor end of the prize.
Tip: ZITA @ $2.8
Richmond R7 – Middle Distance Series 618m
SNEAKY MARQUEE (4) won well last week at his first try over the 618m and will strip fitter for the run. With a vacant box to his outside, he will get plenty of room early and should cross to find the lead. They won’t catch him! BIG SKINNY (1) has placed twice at the track and distance and has been racing consistently at Wenty recently. He will enjoy a nice run and is one to include in exotics.
Warragul R10 – Restricted Win 460m
FLYING FOX (1) is unbeaten over the 460m at Warragul, including an all the way win two runs back from box 1. From the same draw tonight I expect the same result. ARMSTRONG BOBBY (8) won well from box 8 last start and has once again drawn the pink box this week. He will keep the favourite honest and the pair can clear out from the rest of the field.
