Richmond R5 – Middle Distance Series 618m
ZIPPING NISEKO (7) was run down in the shadows of the post at Richmond two runs back and bounced back to the winners list with a strong win at Dapto over the 600m last start. With superior box speed, she can cross the field and lead all the way tonight. She looks to have a bright future. ROYAL EMGRAND (2) has been racing well over the 520m at Wenty and steps up to the 618m for the first time. He is the danger if he can get the trip.
Warragul R6 – Country Championship Heat 4 460m
IVY ISOBEL (1) has won her last two, including a best of the night win over the 460m at Warragul two starts back. She has a terrific record at the track and is drawn perfectly in box 1. She ticks all the boxes. WILLIAM ROSE (3) is better than his recent form suggests and he is capable of pouring the pressure on mid-race. He should fill the quinella spot.
Tip: IVY ISOBEL @ $ 2.6
Geelong R7 – Mixed 4/5 400m
ZIPPING ZARBO (3) was a scintillating 10+ length winner at Geelong last week and looks well placed tonight. She only needs clear running to lead all the way again. VOLTAGE SPIKE (1) has drawn to follow the favourite throughout the race and can capitalise on any mistakes she makes. The pair can space the rest of the field.
