Chris Nelson’s Rosehill Best Bets

RACE 5 No.12 Lady Banff Nice type of filly from the Matt Dunn yard resuming from a break. A veteran of only 7 starts she a winner on 3 occasions with two of those coming when first up/debuting. She’s trialled well enough to win, draws a good alley and the… Read More

Chris Nelson’s Doomben Best Bets

RACE 3 No.9 Gin ‘n’ Bitters Very consistent mare who has accepted for both this race and at the Sunshine Coast tonight (Race 7 # 9). Whichever she goes around in I’m confident she’ll be winning based on her strong yet unlucky effort when racing wide fresh before beating all… Read More

Scott Embry’s Saturday Ascot Preview

RACE 1 MISCHIEVIOUS DIVA will certainly be a little short of her ideal trip at 1000m but her trail was sensational and she has always looked like a filly who would make her mark on the 3 year old ranks. This race has an abundance of speed so she will… Read More

Scott Embry’s Friday Mount Barker Preview

RACE 1 ROCK HARD OMARU and OUR PANDEMONIUM look like they will fight it out in a Wolfe quinella with Moments of Magic the likely third place getter. ROCK HARD OMARU can sit leader’s back from the draw and hold a tactical advantage over OUR PANDEMONIUM which should be enough… Read More
