Sale R6 – Grade 5 Final 440m
ASTON CLUREY (1) is yet to miss a placing in six runs at Sale, with three wins and three minors. The fastest beginner in the race, he is perfectly drawn in box 1 and should lead all the way. CITADEL OF CHAOS (2) is another chaser who enjoys the 440m at Sale, with three wins from four runs. He won well at Sandown last start and is the knockout hope in the race at good odds.
Tip: ASTON CLUREY @ $1.95
Richmond R5 – Richmond Derby Heat 3 535m
EBBY INFRARED (6) will appreciate a return to Richmond for the heats of the Derby, a track where he has won four from five. A winner of both runs from box six and with good bao manners, he can find a handy spot early and will be too strong in the run home. The $4 on offer is a terrific price. ZIPPING MOOSE (8) won the National Derby last start and has begun his career in terrific style, with five wins from six runs. Will he do too much work from box 8? I think EBBY INFRARED will find the rails first and that will be the difference. The pair can battle out the finish.
Tip: EBBY INFRARED @ $4
Geelong R9 – Mixed 6/7 460m
ENVY TO BURN (1) has won two from three at Warrnambool and looks ready for the step up to the 460m this week. Perfectly drawn in the red box, he looks like a chaser with plenty of upside and should be too good for his rivals here. He only needs a clear run to get the prize. BLACK HAWK JET (8) has been racing well at Geelong and will get an uninterrupted run out wide. He is the danger.
