Maitland R7 – Mixed 4/5 400m
VISUALISER (8) has won 8 from 15 in Victoria and makes his Maitland debut tonight. He has terrific box speed and if he can bring his Victorian form over the border the $3+ on offer looks well over the odds. HAAS (7) won here as favourite last week and will jump as favourite from the same box tonight. He is the “safe option” for punters, but at the price, I’m with VISUALISER.
Tip: VISUALISER @ $3.20
Shepparton R6 – Great Eight Regional Series 385m
The numbers for KEPAL (3) are outstanding! He has won 7 from 8 at the track and trip, has won 10 of his last 12 and is a winner of 19 from 31 overall. He ticks all the boxes and is the clear top pick. BODY HACK (2) is another with a great Shepparton record who can make a race of it if he can hold KEPAL out early. The pair can space their rivals.
Tip: KEPAL @ $2.30
Angle Park R9 – Mixed 4/5/6 730m
NEW YEAR TEARS (3) drops back from open grade to take on a small field of chasers who have been performing moderately in much easier races. He is a winner of five over the trip and looks like a “graded” certainty. Expect him to lead all the way. BLUE BY YOU (5) has the speed to go with the favourite early and can hold on for the quinella spot.
