QLD OAKS – WINX – RACE 7 Tab No. 2 [Brisbane]
I can’t go past the obvious. Second in the Australian Oaks then an
impressive win at Sunshine Coast when freshened up is good enough
to beat these fillies.
BEST – TEXT’N HURLEY – RACE 6 Tab No. 5 [Melbourne]
She was very good at Morphettville where she didn’t have clear
running until it was to late. Her record at Moonee Valley is very good
and a potential soft track will only enhance her chances.
VALUE – SAGARONNE – RACE 1 Tab No. 13 [Brisbane]
Raced wide throughout and hit the line extremely well in a weak race
at the Gold Coast in what was the filly’s second start. Blake Shinn on
only helps and she can be competitive in this.
LAY – ECUADOR– RACE 4 Tab No. 2 [Sydney]
He was good first-up but that effort of wet ground may have taken its
toll as he was very poor second-up. Hes giving weight to some decent
horses down the bottom and looks a good risk.
This bloke has won all four of his race starts and our punters believe
he will remain unbeaten. He’s $9 into $6 with some very good sized

QLD OAKS – WINX – RACE 7 No. 2 [Brisbane]
All her Christmases came at once with the scratching of Bohemian
Lily. She’s the unquestionable class of the race and this should be a
procession with the stable mate off the track.
BEST – BALL OF MUSCLE – RACE 5 No. 4 [Brisbane]
Ran a solid second up the straight at Flemington giving the winner a
full 9kg then ran Srikandi to a length at weight-for-age which would be
more than enough in this.
VALUE – ACT OF VALOUR – RACE 3 No. 5 [Melbourne]
Has scarcely put in a bad run. Steps up in ground and gets the claim of
in-form Patrick Moloney. In a race where the handicapper has found a
few others out already, I’m happy to take odds around the $10 mark.
LAY – COUNT ENCOSTA – RACE 2 No. 1 [Adelaide]
It’s brave, stupid, or both to go against Darren Weir in a race like this,
but he’s been over-bet and disappointing before and is on track to start
prohibitively short here for a horse with his pattern.
BACKED – YOU’LL NEVER – RACE 5 No. 4 [Sydney]
He’s been backed from $4.90 to $4.60 early on the back of his good
first-up win in a field no stronger than this. No value in his price, but
he’s the only one they’ve wanted early.

QUEENSLAND OAKS – WINX – RACE 7 No. 2 [Brisbane]
Impressive winner of the Sunshine Coast Guineas last start when gave
the whole field a start and a beating. Prior ran second in the Australian
Oaks and that form looks very strong for this. The one to beat.
BEST – SENTA DE NOCHE – RACE 8 No. 1 [Sydney]
Second-up and speed to burn. Should be able to cross this lot from the
wide barrier. Burnt petrol at both ends first-up and still finished a good
fourth behind a real smart one in Alberto Magic.
VALUE – GOOD PROJECT – RACE 8 No.2 [Brisbane]
Chris Waller three-year-old that finished runner-up when resuming in
Sydney. Form from that race has been confirmed and will have
benefited greatly from that run. Only needs a little luck from the draw.
LAY – BALL OF MUSCLE – RACE 5 No. 4 [Brisbane]
Hard to knock a horse which hasn’t missed a place in 12 starts, but I’m
doing it here. Just don’t think he runs out a really strong 1200m and
I’m expecting his stablemate Kuro to get the better of him late.
BACKED – WERTHER – RACE 4 No. 7 [Brisbane]
With five of the seven runners trained by Chris Waller, the money has
surprisingly come for the NZ runner. Runner-up last start in the South
Australian Derby, the Kiwi has firmed from $6.50 into $4.60.
