Sale R8 – 3-6 Wins 520m
XINMIN BALE (1) came with a strong finish to win at his first attempt over 520m last week and will be better for that run tonight. He has drawn to hug the rails and will be hard to hold out. ZIPPING CRUSADER (6) was a best of the night winner last week and will find the early lead. He will give them something to catch.
Tip: XINMIN BALE @ $2.20
Ipswich R9 – Grade 5 288m
LOUIE LUXE (1) was a brilliant winner over 288m three runs back and had no luck from box 4 last start. The box 1 draw tonight will make all the difference and the $4+ on offer looks well over the odds. I’m with her. HUNTER’S GOLD (6) is a speedy beginner who has enjoyed success over the short course at Ipswich in the past. He can add some value into exotics.
Tip: LOUIE LUXE @ $4.20
Grafton R7 – Grafton Cup Heat 3 450m
ON THE BIT (1) has been airborne in Victoria recently and makes the trip to Grafton to quality for the Cup tonight. Drawn to find the front from the rails he looked a class above his rivals. RESPECTABILITY (7) has won his last couple at the track and trip and while this is a step up in class, he is the knockout chance.
