Trent Cooper’s Preview
BETTOR REWARD (1) was a strong winner here three starts back before tackling stronger company at his two subsequent runs. He looks the class runner and should be winning if he can hold up at the start. BLACK JACK ZAC (2) has battled bad draws recently and can improve from this draw. WESLEY (5) is very quick off the gate and will give some cheek if he can cross at the start. HEEZ ABOUT TO ROCK (10) can be placed at big odds from his nice trailing draw.
Tips: 1 2 5 10
Suggested Bet: BETTOR REWARD (1) to win.
EL HOMBRE (4) ran 3rd to Our Corelli in 1.52.9 before being held up for a run when 3rd here last week. He should enjoy a nice run in the moving line tonight and will get his chance. WALKINSHAW (6) faced the breeze when 2nd to Speed Man at his first run back from a spell and will be fitter for that effort. RUNAWAY THREE (1) doesn’t have the class of many of his rivals but is drawn to lead and should give some cheek. CARTER MICHEAL (3) has been placed at his past seven starts and should be thereabouts again.
Tips: 4 6 1 3
Suggested Bet: RUNAWAY THREE (1) each way.
BETTOR PARTY (1) has been unplaced at his last eight starts but showed improvement when 4th to The Trilogy here last week. He gets his chance over the sprint trip and can give them something to catch at each way odds. CUT FOR AN ACE (2) ran 2nd to Thereugo in 1.55.8 and won’t get a better chance to win one more race. VINCENZO PERUGGIA (7) couldn’t get into the race last week and expect him to be driven more aggressively tonight. MAJOR POCKET (8) has finished 2nd at five of his past six starts but has a tough draw.
Tips: 1 2 7 8
Suggested Bet: BETTOR PARTY (1) each way.
HIT IT RICH (2) was an impressive Pinjarra winner before facing the breeze when a solid 3rd here last week. She is better drawn tonight and looks the one to beat. CRYSTAL SPARKLES (4) won two on end before consecutive placings and should be right in the finish again. TWILIGHT SAGA (1) was a good all the way winner in a stand here before disappointing as a short-priced favourite last start so must be taken on trust. DELIGHTFULREACTION (10) is drawn to get a soft run on the pegs and could be dangerous late.
Tips: 2 4 1 10
Suggested Bet: HIT IT RICH (2) to win.
VAMPIRO (11) faced the breeze and battled on well when 3rd to OUR CORELLI (9) here last week. He has a nice trailing draw and should give a great sight. HANDSANDWHEELS (6) won three on end against similar fields before not having much luck at his last two starts and can bounce back tonight. EL JACKO (10) needs the race run to suit but could get that here and will be dangerous if there is a solid tempo. MOTU PREMIER (8) is a classy conveyance resuming from a spell but the draw makes it tough.
Tips: 11 6 10 8
Suggested Bet: VAMPIRO (11) to win.
ATMOSPHERICAL (5) bounced back to his best form when a dominant winner in easier company and will run a big race if he can reproduce that effort. BAD ROUND (2) is racing consistently without much luck and will win a race of this nature when he gets the breaks. BAPTISM OF FIRE (1) has been placed at his last two starts and should give a great sight over the sprint trip. ATHABASCAN (9) was enormous when 2nd here in 1.55.9 last week and looks a genuine winning chance despite the draw.
Tips: 5 2 1 9
Suggested Bet: ATMOSPHERICAL (5) to win.
KINGSLAYER (3) has impressed in winning his three WA starts, all from the stand. He only needs to begin safely to make it four in a row tonight. SPACE JUNK (6) has disappointed this time in but is the other class runner of the field. DESTINED TO RULE (4) is a very consistent type and can be placed with right run in transit. CALL ME ERNIE (1) has won two of his last three starts, both in stands, and looks a great place chance from the pole.
Tips: 3 6 4 1
Suggested Bet: KINGSLAYER (3) to win.
BLETCHLEY PARK (7) is a classy 4YO who resumed with a dominant win against easier company and has the turn of foot to overcome this draw. JOE WITH THE FLOW (2) hasn’t had much luck since joining the Olivieri camp but looks a chance to find the lead tonight and should be a big improver. THE ARSONIST (5) is ready to show his best after two runs back from a spell and should be thereabouts. EL SUNAMI (1) led throughout from this draw three starts back and can play a part despite the rise in class.
Tips: 7 2 5 1
Suggested Bet: BLETCHLEY PARK (7) to win.
OCEAN RIDGE (2) resumed from a spell with a dominant victory before breaking in running when beaten as a short-priced favourite. He has plenty of ability but hasn’t trialled since that effort so must be taken on trust. THE DALI EXPRESS (1) is a noted frontrunner who should lead here and will give a great sight. PRADAS IDEAL DAHLING (4) hasn’t had much luck lately and should get a nice run just off the speed tonight. BURNING RUBBER (3) has a nice turn of foot off a soft trip and should get that scenario tonight.
Tips: 2 1 4 3
Suggested Bet: OCEAN RIDGE (2) to win.Market Market
