Gosford R7 – Mixed 4/5 515m
MONTANNA KEEPING (1) ran well for second last week from box 5 at her first attempt over the 515m at Gosford and will be better for that run. From box 1 tonight, she can find the front and lead all the way. SADDLEBACK has been showing plenty of early speed at Gunnedah of late and wasn’t disgraced at Wenty last start. She is capable of adding some spice into exotics.
Townsville R6 – Best 8 380m
JOHN STRACHIN (3) is airborne at the moment with six wins on the trot, all over the 380m at Townsville. His last two wins have been by big margins in best of the night time and he looks well placed here. It is hard to see him losing. SEPTIMO (7) appreciated a drop back in distance to 380m last start and he is capable of poring the pressure on. He is the knockout chance.
Tip: JOHN STRACHIN @ $1.7
Warragul R9 – FFA 400m
This looks like a match race between THROW CAUTION (2) and MOODY GIRL (1). THROW CAUTION has pinged the lids at his last seven Warragul runs and has the speed to cross MOODY GIRL, who has won her last two runs. I’m with THROW CAUTION to lead all the way, with MOODY GIRL chasing hard throughout the race. The pair should fight out the finish.
