Lismore R3 – Mixed 4/5 259m
DAM THE MAN (1) returned to form with a win over the short course at The Gardens last start and has the advantage of box 1 tonight. Having won all three starts over the 259m at Lismore he is well placed to get the money. KINGSBRAE JESS (2) has good early speed and can pour the pressure on early from a nice draw. She is the danger.
Tip: DAM THE MAN @ $2.6
Townsville R4 – Grade 5 380m
How good is MAJOR GIBSON (4)? In his two career runs to date, both over the 380m at Townsville he has won by 10+ lengths in best of the night time. I expect him to jump to the top and lead all the way again tonight to bring up his hat trick. I can’t wait to watch him. DYNA WAQA (8) put in a much-improved run last time and is one to include in exotics.
Tip: MAJOR GIBSON @ $1.5
Mandurah R7 – Grade 5 490m
YUNDERUP MAGIC (1) has led all the way to win her last three runs and looks better than these. She can make it four on the trot. With explosive early speed from the cherry, she can put a space in her rivals and should hold them out comfortably in the run home. TELL IT WALKING (3) was an impressive last start track and distance winner who will try to keep in touch with the favourite early. She can capitalise if the favourite makes a mistake.
