Best Bets – Wed 28th Feb

James Squire Plate Mdn

Rosehill race 1 (1200m) 2:20 pm

I thought I’d get in early before the track gets too cut up. But, this is a fascinating contest. Chris Waller has 3 runners and Jay Mac can pretty much ride what he wants as the stable jock. He has chosen KIRRAGIRL. But on form, MAKENA with Nash Rawiller on top, is the pick of them. I’m sticking with Nash and form but the jockey placements are cause for concern. Quinella them up.

Rosehill Race 3 (2400m) 3:30 pm

I’m going for a roughie here. I like WILSHIRE BOULEVARD because she is just so well weighted. She meets YARRAWONGA for example, 6kg better for a 2 lengths loss to him last start. And she is fitter now. Plus, the damp track suits her. I’ll quinella them because he is tough and will lead but I do think she swamps him late.

Super Mdn

Rosehill Race 4 (1500m) 4:05 pm

This is a seriously good maiden field. And I like the British import CORMAC T on debut in Oz. He’s placed a few times in England over a trip but he’s been with Annabel Neasham for a few months now and the way he won a 1207m barrier trial last week says to me he might be pretty smart. I’m prepared to gamble that he is and will quinella, for a nice return, him with LIMBURG. Really keen to watch this race.

Sharp EIT BM72

Rosehill Race 7 (1400m) 5:50 pm

Another strong race boasting a few potential Saturday-grade gallopers. But, because the track will be really cut up by the last the front-runners will be suited. So, I’m on SOLDIER OF ROME to jump, sprint hard early, assume a lead, control the tempo and boot away, about 5 horses off the rails once they turn for home. IRONTON might be pretty handy so he runs on into 2nd late.

Launceston Cup

Launceston Race 8 (2400m) 4:53 pm

Biggest race of the day and I just can’t go past the topweight AURORA’S SYMPHONY. He’s in career-best form, came from this same gate over this same trip to beat most of these in record time last start. Goes up 2kg but did win win nearly 3 lengths. I do think ALHAMBRA LAD can improve on his 8th in that same race last start and run the quinella but the toppie looks a special to me.
