Best Bets – Wed 24th Jan

The Coast Mdn Plate

Gosford Race 1 (1600m) 1:45 am

I think this lightly raced mare AQUATICA can do something today. Was all at sea on debut when near last but seemed to have found a clue last start when 5th in this grade over 1400m. Was ridden too close to the lead yet still kept coming late. If allowed to settle here I think she sprouts wings and makes it very tough for the one to beat which is BEACH PARTY. Quinella them up.

Super Mdn Plate

Gosford race 2 (1200m) 2:55 am

I think we should give this boomed filly FICKLE another chance. The money went on at Canterbury on debut and she travelled nicely to the bend where she pulled out, went to them but wouldn’t go past the leaders. She ran 6th but was in 3rd with 25m to go. That experience should help her a great deal. And in this field the quality may be weaker than on debut. I’ll back her today.

Maiden Plate

Sandown Race 2 (1300m) 4:15 am

INEZ moved up late and narrowly missed a missed Seymour this grade last start. That was her 2nd start so knows the game and is fitter now. More significantly, however, Blake Shinn will ride and a ton of money has been wagered on her overnight. That’ll do me.

BM 64 Hcp

Gosford Race 6 (1100m) 4:40 am

It’s hard to fathom that a horse with form, and who’s won 3 races for $111,000 in stakes money, can get in here 1kg under a last start maiden winner. But, MEMORIA does. Taking all that into consideration, she also appeals because she has form around much better-credentialled runners than she faces here, oh, and she won a barrier trial recently. I think she is a great bet. The way TRISKELION charged through on the fence to win on debut was impressive but this race is a lot harder. Quinella them.

BM 70 Hcp

Sandown Race 8 (1800m) 7:20 am

I just love a horse third up and here we have one called HARD TO CROSS. Did make up ground late last start over a mile when 2nd in this company. Super fit now, Paddy Payne trains and he can make stayers. Looks to settle about 4th and finish too hard. Has been backed overnight also.
