Best Bets – Wednesday 19th June

Golden Mile 2YO

Canterbury race 1 (1250m) 12:50 pm

I really liked the way this unraced Gai and Adrian galloper WANARUAH bounded out of the gates in his latest trial, then set a solid tempo before finding plenty in the end. It was a text book version of the better trials that manifest into great runs by the Waterhouse/Bott team. looks too fast. Interestingly for quinella players, another unraced galloper HELL TO PAY has firmed overnight from $15 into $9.

I just think if you can find $2.10 about SUMMER LOVING – get on. If I can, it will make me as happy as on my wedding day. This filly flies and should go straight to the front from the opening gate and lead all the way.

It will be interesting to see how they ride BALMIERRO here. He had been running handily in this grade when ridden off speed but last start over 1600m they decided to send him hard early and he led a very similar field, which included rivals here EXPOSITION and LENAPE VIBE. And he led until the last bound beaten near the post. He beat his rivals home and meets them 1kg better in a slightly shorter race. Leads me to lean toward him as he is trained here also. Get on each way.

MOLLY NAILS is 2nd up here after a nice even 5th this grade when resuming. On past form I think she is slightly the better racehorse but the market wants you to back IRON MAN off the inside gate. Molly comes out of 3 and I think she gets the run of the race so I’m on her to be fitter and finish hardest. Quinella them.

Bossy's Cl 3

Doomben race 8 (1350m) 4:06 pm

Despite the wide draw I like SHA OF GOMER because he is 3rd up, he is a genuine horse and he is coming back in grade. I’m praying jock Mark du Plessis can slot him in behind the speed in about 6th spot, one off the fence with cover. If so, he should finish very hard at good each way odds.
