Bendigo R6 – Winter Cup Heat 660m
MEPUNGA SPECTRE (2) is a stayer with plenty of ability who was an impressive last start winner at Warrnambool. From box 2 she can sit closer in the run than normal and will power home. Only bad luck can stop her. POLLY’S YOHANNA (8) is a strong chaser who will need a touch of luck from the wide draw. She is one to include in exotics.
Richmond R6 – Grade 5 618m
KEYDRA (1) was an impressive all the way winner at Richmond over 618m two runs back, before a solid second at Wentworth Park last start. She will appreciate the return to Richmond and from box 1, she will get all the favours in the lead. TAP OUT SNIPER (2) will jump an odds on favourite and has a great record at the track and distance. The pair should fill the top two spots, but KEYDRA is the value.
Tip: KEYDRA @ $4.4
Mandurah R4 – FFA 490m
CURT LEE (4) has been racing consistently with a win and three seconds from his last four runs. With a vacant box to his inside and his main dangers drawn to his outside he can find the top and lead all the way. He is well placed. CHOMP MONELLI (7) was an impressive last start winner over the 405m and has a good record over the 490m. He looks the danger.
