The Meadows R6 – Group 3 The Fireball 725m
TRUE DETECTIVE (2) had plenty of excuses from box 6 last week and will appreciate being drawn closer to the rails tonight. He has won 24 from 45 and is a three-time winner over the 725m at The Meadows. He will be finishing strongly and is the one to beat. THRIVING (1) will ping the lids and give the field something to catch. She looks the knockout chance.
The Meadows R7 – Group 1 Maturity Classic 525m
This is a fantastic Group 1 field. SIMON TOLD HELEN (3) is one of Australia’s leading chasers and with even luck at box rise he should be too good for his rivals. He needs clear running over the first 20m. HARD STYLE RICO (1), CHRISTO BALE (2) and TIGGERLONG TONK (4) all have claims if the favourite misses the kick. From box 1 I am sticking with HARD STYLE RICO to fill the quinella spot.
Wentworth Park R9 – FFA 520m
EBBY JET POWER (2) has won three from his last five, including an impressive last start win from box 5 when overcoming difficulties in the run. From box 2 tonight he should have no problems finding the arm and can carve out good time. He looks to have lengths on his rivals. FURIOUS NOT FAST (1) can hug the rails and get the minor end of the prize.
