Albion Park R5 – Grade 5 520m
HOPEFUL HEART (1) has a win and a second placing from two Albion Park runs, both at big odds. From box 1 tonight, she will jump favourite and enjoy a terrific run along the rails before being too strong in the run home. DOUBLE MALT (4) is capable of pinging the lids and will give his backers a great sight at nice odds. He can add some value into exotics.
Tip: HOPEFUL HEART @ $2
Launceston R4 – Best 8 515m
Tasmania’s best chaser WYNBURN SHEEAN (4) returns after a luckless run in his Shepparton Cup heat and looks to have lengths on his rivals tonight. He is undefeated over the 515m at Launceston and with a vacant box to his outside, he will get plenty of room at box rise. He won’t be big odds, BUT he will be winning! ALWAYS BAROQUE (6) continues to race well with four wins from her last six runs including a best of the night win at Launceston last month. She can keep the favourite honest. The pair will space the rest of the field.
Shepparton R6 – Grade 5 Final 450m
FORTUNA BALE (3) was a strong winner last week despite missing the start and was second in the Group 2 Ballarat Cup the start before. She is ready to put it all together tonight and can record back to back wins. Watch the clock! ZEVATRON (6) chased FORTUNA BALE home last start and is capable of pouring the pressure on once again. He is the danger.
