Some very appealing ones in this for me, including recent winners Elvis Mail and Credo, while Wasdell Dundalk is a really consistent type. I like Wasdell for the big hurdle on the card, but this looks the preference.
Famous Bridge and Secret Survivor equally appealing, but it’s a pair of outsiders who I’m coming round to, in Omar Maretti and Haut Estime.
I’ll leave Omar Maretti alone just now, as his price should hold, and have an early bet on Haut Estime.
She’s not the most reliable and look’s awkward at times, but running very big race at Perth two races back, when she took a heavy fall. Looked as if they were giving her a bit of a confidence booster last time, and as she can put in the odd good round, I took the current 33’s. Hoping not to see her entered up early next week anywhere. Very risky this one, but thought the 33’s just too big
I stuck her in my tracker after that fall at Perth two starts ago.
The nagging concern for me with her is the trip seemed to be the undoing of her last time out but given the odds I’m willing to go in again. Coming back a furlong will certainly help but she was beat before that last time.
Easy to pick holes in the horse at those prices but it’s a risk worth taking to me.
I’ve a feeling it’s going to be a stupid bet because this is a better race and I’ll be having a saver on Wasdell as he was staying on really well in the same race last.
