Richmond R8 – 1-3 Win 535m
ISAAC’S SPIRIT (1) has recorded wins over 330m and 400m at his last two runs and steps up to 535m for the first time tonight. Drawn to find the lead from box 1, he can build up a big lead and hold on in the straight, in what isn’t an overly strong race. GONE BY NOON (6) was a winner at Richmond and Dapto before struggling from the squeezebox at Wentworth Park last start. With a clean getaway, she looks the danger.
Geelong R11 – RWH 400m
GOTHAM DUKE (7) won two on the trot at Warragul by big margins before disappointing at Bendigo last start. He will be suited by the small field tonight and can bounce back to the winner’s list with a safe beginning. MAGIC MAMBA (1) won well at Shepparton last time and from the rails, he is drawn to feature in the finish. The pair look to have their rivals covered.
Tip: GOTHAM DUKE @ $1.95
Mandurah R8 – Mixed 4/5 405m
SON OF JAMAICA (1) is airborne with four wins and a second from his last five runs, all over the 405m at Mandurah. Expect him to find the lead and carve out good time on the arm. Only bad luck can stop him. FIORELLA FORWARD (8) has been racing consistently and has enough early speed to find a forward spot. She is one to include in exotics.
