A popular strategy with any seasoned picnic enthusiast was just to back the 14 time Picnic Premiership winning jockey Adam Bodey wherever the non-Tab meeting was as invariably he'd boot home the most winners. A good source tells us that he had around a 35% winning strike rate around his vintage years!
Now he's tipping the winners to the punters and has given us his thoughts for the Healesville attendees:
Race 2 No.1 CAPTAIN MATERIAL
This lightly raced six year old has good enough form for this event. Just missed last start at the professional Hanging Rock meeting on New Years Day breaking a minute for the 1000m, if he repeats that performance he can get the job done.
Race 6 No.1 MYSTYKO
Had the form on the board last start and won nicely. Stays in the same grade and only goes up a kilo on his last win with Sophie Logan retaining the ride and pulling the 2 kilo's off his back which is needed as he is running over the mile for the first time.
Race 1: 2-6-1
Race 2: 1-3-9
Race 3: 7-9-1
Race 4: 2-3-4
Race 5: 3-4-5
