Gawler R5 – Grade 6 531m
SPRINGVALE ROXY steps up to 530m for the first time tonight after winning at her last four Gawler runs. She has drawn to find the lead and put a space on her rivals down the back. Expect her to hold on in the run home. SPRING CASPER (6) has won over the 531m before and is the only chaser in the race who is capable of sticking with the favourite early on. He can fill the quinella spot.
Sale R8 – Mixed 3/4 440m
ELMO ROSE (2) is racing in great form, with back to back wins followed by a close up second last start. He can jump well and pour the early pressure onto the favourite MAXWELL (1) in the early stages and prove stronger in the last 50m. MAXWELL was terrific last week BUT has struggled to win in recent weeks. I’m taking him on at the price. The pair can space their rivals.
Tip: ELMO ROSE @ $4.20
Grafton R10 – Grade 5 350m
SKY STONE has won his last couple and gets the perfect box draw tonight. He has a great winning strike rate and has shown that he doesn’t have to lead to win. The $2.50+ on offer is HUGE. VICMYSTER (2) continues to fill the minor placings and can add some value into the exotics.
