Bulli R7 – FFA 400m
POPPY JACK (7) has got a picket fence form line and loves the 400m at Bulli where he has won five from seven. With terrific box manners, he can find the front and lead all the way. Bad luck looks his main danger. ZETLAND TIGER (2) can punch through along the rails and sit close to the lead during the run and looks well placed to fill the quinella spot. The pair should space the rest.
Tip: POPPY JACK @ $1.6
Warragul R9 – Mixed 6/7 460m
REINFORCER (2) has led all the way to win his last two and should have no issues handling the step up to 460m tonight. The fastest beginner in the race, he will get out to a big lead and be hard to catch. DARNUM DODGER (5) resumes after a few months of the scene and has placed at four of his five runs at the track and distance. Any betting moves on him must be respected.
Tip: REINFORCED @ $2.5
Townsville R8 – Country Cup Heat 2 498m
MAJOR GIBSON is one of the best chasers in Northern Queensland and has won seven from ten over the 498m. Expect him to jump well before putting a space on his rivals down the back. He is a class above them. MURPHY RUMBLE (7) continues to race well without winning and will once again run his usual honest race. He is capable of an upset if the favourite doesn’t bring his A-game.
