Race 6, No. 5 REVIELLE
I've been with her all prep so far and she now gets to the mile which she's been crying out for. The drier track is a tick and so is the draw (3), Pike rides and I think she's the best on the card.
Race 3, No. 4 MILITARY RULER
Bit of a throw at the stumps with this now veteran 7yo. He's competed in much stronger races in his career and I think he's worth one last crack. Great stats at the track and trip (9:2.3.3) having only missed the top 3 once. Draws to get all the favours and gets a little bit of weight relief with the J.Turner claim. Great $16 chance!
The wizard William Pike is coming off five winners from seven rides at Northam on Thursday. From his last 25 rides, he's booted home 11 winners, he's once again has a strong book, with 5 rides that are either favourite or second favourite.
Race 2, No. 7 SECONDA VITA
Looks like this 5yo mare has found a nice race to break her maiden and the punters agree. Opened $4, into a clear $3.20 favourite.
Leg 1: 2,4,5,7
Leg 2: 5,6,11
Leg 3: 1,3,6,8,9,11
Leg 4: 1,2,3,4,12
$72 gets you 20%
Race 1: 1,3,4,2 (Really good race to kick things off, with Magic Planet, who has a win against the talented Lordhelpmerun)
Race 2: 7,6,3,4 (I'd be suggest to watch these go around, very average lot)
Race 3: 4,2,3,9 (Best Value)
Race 4: 1,7,6,2 (If it runs up to his close second behind Rebel King, it just wins Man Booker)
Race 5: 2,7,5,4 (Back on top of the ground, he's a great each way chance)
Race 6: 5,11,6,3 (Best Bet)
Race 7: 8,1,11,5 (Rock hard fit and will appreciate getting back on the ground, another at nice each way odds)
Race 8: 4,2,3,12 (Even lot, happy to be with the talented Yindi)
