Best Bets – Wednesday 3rd April

Hungerford hill Mdn

Newcastle race 1 (900m) 1:45 pm

So much money has come in for DUKE OF BRONTE. But I’m against the cash flow. Duke of Bronte has trialled like a superstar this prep winning both trials very easily, but carrying no weight. He is to be ridden by 4kg apprentice Leeshelle Small who has NEVER ridden a real race winner and he’s up against a 2yo on debut who trialled very impressively called SHIRVINGTON. The fav probably leads but this juvenile will sit eye-balling him. Great battle coming up but I like Shirvington with Rachel King on board.

NZB Finance Mdn Plate

Newcastle race 3 (1850m) 2:55 pm

I do think the Collett siblings fight this one out. Jason is on the fav KOTAISHI while Alysha is on PRESLEY and it is the latter I like the most. He’s had just two runs and last start ran home hard after being on pace all the way over a mile at Goulburn to finish 2nd. Fitter for that run and can go toe to toe late with any of these. Quinella them up.

Coastline Pools Mdn

Newcastle race 4 (1250m) 3:30 pm

There’s just something about the mare EXTREME FRILLY to like here. She has shown in her six runs to date that she is getting better every start. So if that theory holds up, and she improves on her 2nd in this grade last start, she gets the chocolates.

Prince of Merewether BM 64

Newcastle race 6 (1850m) 4:40 pm

I know he has done absolutely nothing in two starts this time up plus he’s getting on in years but gee CHATEAUX PARK comes into this race well off. It still may be a tad short but he is down so much in grade and with the 2kg claim is perfectly weighted. I see him off this gate, settling about 8th on the fence and if Anna Roper can find galloping room in the stretch he could flash home. Great each way bet.

Midway Championship Wildcard

newvastle race 7 (1400m) 5:15 pm

This is as open as the heads. CLOUDLAND, WILLINGA FREEFALL and TERRA MATER all rate very highly and I suggest you box them up in trifectas and First 4s with PEACE OFFICER. He has the rails draw, is 2nd up and won last prep 2nd up and looks to sit about 4th with cover until they turn. Good, tight race coming up.
