Best Bets – Wed 17th Jan

Kensington Race 1 (1000m) 2:20 am

Off the trials you probably wouldn’t go for APRES SKI as she has placed just once in 4 trials. But, I suspect she has been held back in all of them. Jay Mac is riding her for Godolphin in preference to a performed Chris waller runner which to me is a massive push. She has found her feet in the trials so probably sits off the pace and expect her to charge late from AMOREAUX.

Kensington race 2 (1400m) 2:55 am

This Chris Waller trained 3YO PURE ALPHA might be pretty handy. Has only had the one start but it was an impressive effort grabbing 2nd beaten a long neck. He sat in 3rd spot to the turn and ground away.  The 3rd horse home that day has since been narrowly beaten in town. Looks to sit in the one, one spot here and should be too fast down the running form the handy Godolphin filly RIP OFF.

Kensington Race 3 (1150m) 3:30 am

Could be, well I actually will be betting it is a great day for Jay Mac. I see him landing the first three winners with the one, SPEED PERSONIFIED, looking the pick of them. ran a great 3rd making ground late this grade on debut and will have improved a great deal. Drawn gate 2 so sits about 4th on the fence smoking the pipe waiting for the run to open up which it will. Stablemate RAVENCLAW can battle on for the quinella bet.

Sandown Race 2 (1300m) 4:15 am

Unbeaten filly SURPRISE VALLEY steps up in class here but both her bush wins have been very solid. She has lots of early pace and won at Yarra Valley in similar level when resuming last start very easily by leading throughout. Fitter now.

Sandown race 6 (1800m) 6:30 am

When you see a mare in form and that form has come from two runs back from a spell, you know she will run well for you. TAHLEQUAH is bred to like it longer and gets a great chance here stepping up from a placing this grade last start over a mile. Blake Shinn to ride and looks perfectly placed.
