Rosehill Race 8 – G3 Festival Stakes – 1500m
#3 Order Again – $10/$3.20
You just have to respect the J Mac & Waller combination. The fact J Mac is on first up suggests he’ll run really well fresh. Likes wet tracks and has performed well when fresh before. Each way all day.
BACK ORDER AGAIN EACH WAY
Caulfield Race 5 – G3 Summoned Stakes – 1600m
#9 Steinem – $3
She’s a mare on the way up and although she is a month between runs, she will find this much easier than her two previous assignments. Most of these mares have found their mark but she’s the one with upside and room for improvement. A deserving favourite and solid bet.
BACK STEINEM TO WIN!
Caulfield Race 6 – G2 Neds Sandown Guineas – 1600m
#4 Chartres – $12/$3.40
He was super impressive last start when bolting in and there appears to be a real sense of timing with him. Most of these come into this race as an afterthought, where he looks to have been set for this all along. The gate is a little tricky but he’s well over the odds and a ripping each way play.
BACK CHARTRES EACH WAY IN THE GUINEAS
Caulfield Race 7 – G2 Zipping Classic – 2400m
#2 Warning – $5
Looking for a hat trick of wins and racing in the best form of it’s life. Spanish Mission deserves to be favourite but looks poison odds at the current $1.50 on offering. Warning is clearly the testing material to the fave and at the prices I’m happy to back Warning to beat Spanish Mission.
BACK WARNING TO WIN THE ZIPPING CLASSIC
Caulfield Race 8 – G3 Eclipse Stakes – 1800m
#1 So Si Bon – $13/$3.60
I can’t believe I am saying this but I’m backing So Si Bon…There was bugger all between him and race favourite Our Playboy last start and So Si even gets a small weight swing in his favour. Our Playboy looks like being buried away back on the fence and will need luck. I won’t be having the house on but I’ll certainly be having something each way at double figures.
HAVE SOMETHING ON SO SI BON EACH WAY
Caulfield Race 9 – G3 Kevin Heffernan Stakes – 1400m
#2 Surprise Baby – $13/$3.70
He’s had a few issues after starting $6 in last year’s Melbourne Cup. Over a year off the scene now and a stable change from Preusker to Bedggood but his fresh runs have always been full of merit. He’ll be much better suited over further but this is a very open race and I’m willing to bet that he’ll run a race first up at odds. Each way.
HAVE SOMETHING ON SURPRISE BABY EACH WAY
Ascot Race 8 – G1 Winterbottom Stakes – 1200m
#6 Indian Pacific – $16/$4.20
He’s been beaten by Elite Street the last two starts but everytime Mervyn was in the race running them along at breakneck speeds. No Mervyn today and the speed doesn’t look overly strong, he’ll push forward from the wide alley and without such a frenetic tempo set up front, he can finish off the race much better today. He’s over the odds and looks set to run a race. Each way.
BACK INDIAN PACIFIC EACH WAY IN THE WINTERBOTTOM
Indianapolis Colts ($2.30) VS Tampa Bay Buccaneers ($1.62) – Lucas Oil Stadium
Tamba Bay Buccaneers -3 @ $1.87
Indy continues to force, and not commit, lots of turnovers. Something that looks unsustainable for much longer. On defence the Colts are 30th in pressure rate, 22nd in EPA per dropback allowed, and allow the highest YPA to opposing QB’s in the middle of the field. That is where ‘The Goat’ Brady will slice and dice the Colt’s defence apart. Brady and the Bucs to cover the line.
BACK BRADY & THE BUCS TO COVER THE LINE
