Best Bets – Sat 5th August

VRC MEMBER SIMON GREEN PLATE

Flemington R6 (2000m) 2:40 pm

Happy to give ARISTONOUS another chance after getting way too far back last time out at Caulfield when a short priced favorite. Got to the line well and now at headquarters with the big open spaces of the Flemington straight he should be very well suited.

JOCKEYS CELEBRATION DAY SPRINT

Flemington R10 (1100m) 5:05 pm

The classy BENEDETTA resumes today and appears to have come back better than ever, looking at her recent jump-out victory at Mornington where she won with plenty in hand. She is already a winner down the straight and she should be taking all sorts of beating in this line up.

Eagle Farm R6 (1200m) 2:33 pm

ZARASTRO found the lead and looked the winner last time out but was hammered throughout and went down narrowly. Hopefully will be much fitter second-up and he should be able to lead again. Let’s hope he gets away with a couple of cheap sectionals and he should be able to find the line this time around.

CONGRATULATIONS NEVILLE PARNHAM

Belmont R7 (1400m) 3:30 pm

FIRST ENCOUNTER looks to be a star on the rise in the West. He has plenty of potential and won impressively first-up a fortnight ago. Sticks to the same journey and Pike on board doesn’t hurt either. Does look the bet of the day.

CONGRAULATIONS WILLIAM PIKE

Belmont R9 (1200m) 5:15 pm

COLOSSAL is drawn out in the car park today and more than likely have to go back and sit near the tail. If there is pace on, which I’d expect, he should be the one storming home over them late. He’s a nice horse and surely Pikey in last is due soon.
