Race 5, No. 4 I AM IMPINGE
Won a recent trial where he got the better of another runner and they put a fair space on the others. Has a good record fresh and at his past two race starts in the New Year had to contend with the very smart Pierata. Jeff Lloyd will place him close in the run and will be just too good for them.
Race 4, No. 9 LIPSYNC
There's no Milli Vanilli or Betty Boo about this mare Lipsync. She's pretty genuine and ran on well from the rear to finish second at Toowoomba. Luke Tarrant can position her where he likes in the run from barrier 2 so she can finish strong and silence the others. $6.
Jim Byrne is striking at just over 22% win rate for the month of May. Byrne has 3 mounts that are worth a watch today.
Race 3, No. 1 BACHELOR'S ART
Has been backed into favouritism from the time markets opened. $3.60 into $2.80.
Leg 1: 3,4
Leg 2: 5,6,14
Leg 3: 10
Leg 4: 2,4,5,10,14,17
$36 gets you 100%.
Race 1: 4,9,7,6. Evolo drops in class on last start fourth and runs on well. Is looking for the trip now.
Race 2: 7,1,8,4. These middle distance staying races of late have thrown up some unusual results and Delaney's Desire was doing her best work late behind Red Phantom last start and with the extra 200 metres will improve.
Race 3: 3,6,1,9. Meaner fought on well for a close second here first up and they gapped the others. Drops 1.5 kgs and should have their measure.
Race 4: 9,3,2,4. Value Bet Lipsync.
Race 5: 4,3,14,13. Best Bet. I Am Impinge
Race 6: 14,6,5,12. Good race, with the inform import Kay Kay Boy and Expertea who should improve on her first up run. I think the N.Z visitor Time Lord who has nominated for Queensland Derby, can make an impression first up in Oz.
Race 7: 10,2,8,5. Weona Nicconi won with ease in a Class 1 on debut. Steps up to a BM65 but looks like he can measure up and will quickly move through the grades.
Race 8: 10,5,7,11. Personalised hasn't had a lot of racing room in the straight in her past couple. Lengthens quickly at the business end of a race and can get over the top of them.
