Townsville R3 – Best 8 380m
NANGAR BOLT (1) has thrived since moving to Townsville with five wins from six starts and gets the benefit of box 1 tonight. He looks well suited by the small field and can add to his already impressive record. WINTER GHOST (4) always tries his heart out and was beaten by less than 2 lengths last time. He can add value into the exotics.
Tip: NANGAR BOLT @ $1.85
Gosford R8 – Gosford Goldmine Heat 3 515m
BLUE BLAZER (4) was an all the way winner over the 515m at Gosford two runs back before struggling at Wenty last start. With a vacant box to her inside and back to his favourite track the $3.5+ on offer looks HUGE. SIMPLY LIMELIGHT (7) was placed in Group 3 company earlier this month and makes his Gosford debut tonight and is the class runner. He has been slowly away at his last few runs and I’m taking him on at the short price.
Tip: BLUE BLAZER @ $3.50
Warragul R12 – Veterans 400m
HAZEY ROY (2) is relishing Veterans Grade in recent times and has won three from three at the track and trip. He can hold the lead in the small field and is the one to beat. FERNANDO BLUEY (8) was beaten at a short price last start and will once again jump at short odds. He will need to cross the field early to win. Can he do it? I’m not so sure!
