Best Bets – Sat 10th Feb
ASFOORA is somewhat of a first up star. She has made four fresh appearances for three wins and a second. Last time in, her only defeat was to Imperatriz in the Group 1 Moir Stakes and she won a Group 2 Schillaci Stakes at her last run back in October. She should settle on the speed and prove too good for her opposition in the run home.
MR BRIGHTSIDE should take a power of beating here in the C.F.Orr Stakes. Although he is first-up this preparation, he is all class and at weight-for-age he looks pitch-forked into this race. His jump-out was super with him closing on them late. He should be winning this.
RATING 72+ HANDICAP
Going to stick with AUTUMN REBEL to be the standout at Bunbury. Although he is dropping back a little in distance, I think his class will be enough to get this three-year-old colt across the line again. He hasn’t been winning by big margins, but has strung three together and I feel as though he will add to that picket fence here.
I’ve been backing ANYTHINK GOES in Sydney recently and he has just found one better a couple of times. This certainly looks like his race here and he has never missed a place over the trip. Should settle on speed and be the one they will have to get by down the lane.
KINLOCH was impressive winning the Sunshine Coast Cup last time, running down our selection in Essonne. It proved the prior win at Randwick was no fluke and he should go back early and come with that withering run that we know he possesses. If they can get home today, watch for him to finish over them.
