Best Bets – Sat 8th July


Caulfield R8 - Sir John Monash Stakes (Group 3) (1100m) 4:10 pm

Going with SIGH here in her first hit out at weight-for-age. Now third-up this time in, she should be even fitter for those past two wins and ready to step up in class. There appears to be plenty of speed in this event and can see her getting a lovely run in behind them. She possesses a nice turn-of-hoof as shown last time out winning at Flemington and looks the one to beat.


Doomben R7 - Open Handicap (1110m) 3:23 pm

DRAGONSTONE coming north, appears very well suited in this Open handicap coming off a Listed placing last start at Randwick. Had a nice trial win at Canterbury a fortnight ago and should be hard fit third-up today. Enjoys the cut out of the track and should get those conditions this weekend.


Doomben R4 - BM78 Handicap (1200m) 1:28 pm

AMITY GAL is a very consistent mare who always gives her best. Beaten less than a length last time out over 1050m and should be suited back up to 1200m. One start in the heavy for a win and gets through the soft just as well. Should be each way odds and worth an investment.


Belmont R6 - BM66+ Handicap (2100m) 4:46 pm

QUEEN ALINA may have looked slightly disappointing last time after being hailed the winner at the corner, I don’t believe she was suited to the heavy track so may pay to forgive that effort. If she finds a better surface today, I think she will prove too classy for this field.


Belmont R8 - Beaufine Stakes (1000m) 6:00 pm

Although REAL DANGER is stepping up to listed grade today, this four-year-old mare has been racing very consistently of late and in line for the hat trick. William Pike retains the ride and knows her well. She should prove extremely hard to beat.
