Good Form Preview - Thursday @ Kilmore


The Game Plan for Kilmore with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV).

Best Bets
(Race 2 No.1 Nulnvoid) $100 Win
This mare ran a good race from the front last start but found one better on the day. That was her third run back from a break and should have topped her off fitness wise for her assignment today. She looks a strong hope of leading from the pole and could prove very hard to run down.
(Race 3 No.5 Clancys Fobwatch) $100 Win
This bloke tasted defeat for the first time this preparation after stringing together five wins on the trot. His effort in defeat was still quite good as he didn’t appear to handle the tight track and if Greg Sugars had the drive again he would probably do things a little different. He looks a cut above his rivals tonight and looks a great hope of returning to the winners circle. 
Best Value
(Race 7 No.10 Beach Shack) $25EW
This filly has run well at all three of her starts since resuming from a break against quality opposition. She takes on the boys here and has to overcome a tricky draw but she appears to be above average and looks a strong chance tonight in an open race .
Money Race
Race 4 ($50 Flexi First 4’s)
3/ 2/ 1/ 5,6,7 $25 gets 833.33%
3/ 2/ 5,6,7/ 1 $25 gets 833.33%

Good Form Preview - Thursday @ Maryborough


The Game Plan for Maryborough with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV).
Best Bet
(Race 4 No.13 Bettor Move) $100 Win
This bloke blew away a moderate lot at Swan Hill last start in very impressive fashion. He will need to step up here as he meets better opposition and he’s drawn poorly but he looks to have plenty of scope. I expect him to work around the field and find the breeze mid race today and be too good. 
Best Value
(Race 3 No.11 Tuscan Breeze) ($20W/$55P)
There was plenty to like about the way this filly stuck to her task down the lane in a strong field at Melton last start. She will need a touch of luck from the draw today but if she gets it expect her to perform well at an each way price.
Money Race
Race 5 ($50 Flexi First 4’s)

Good Form Preview - Wednesday @ Bendigo

The Game Plan for Bendigo – with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)
Best Bets/ All-Up ($50)
Artistica Uno (Race 2 no. 9) $2.50 (Place)
I really think this mare will win on the back of some very consistent form and a brave last start performance but for the purposes of this All-Up let’s just back her the place.

Whata Punt (Race 3 no. 4) $1.70 (Win)
He’s first-up without a spell but everything suits here and I expect this bloke to lead and win tonight.

Diamond Ace (Race 4 no. 11) $2.80 (Place)
This guy meets some handy rivals here but he drops sharply in grade for this assignment and is in the zone right now, so should get the job done as a result. Even if he doesn’t we only need him to fill a hole here for our All-Up.

Eye Like Candy (Race 7 no. 3) $1.50 (Win)
This is another little step up but I just can’t see how they’ll get past this mare, particularly if she leads them as expected.

The Money Races
Race 2 (Flexi Trifectas for $50)
As mentioned above, I’m sticking fat with Artistica Uno (9) here and outside her there’s limited place hopes in this.

9/ 2,5,6,10/ 2,5,6,10. $36 gets 300%
2,5,6,10/ 9/ 2,5,6,10. $14 gets 116.67%

Race 7 (Flexi Trifectas for $100)
This looks a super betting race on paper with Eye Like Candy (3) set to find the front with Ariosa (2) on her back and peg-domination looking the order of the night. Western Gretel (4) could cause some pain if she plays bully but I still really think that we should lob one of these Tricks below.

3/ 2/ 9. $30 gets 3000%
3/ 2/ 4,6,11. $30 gets 1000%
3/ 9/ 2. $20 gets 2000%

Good Form Preview - Wednesday @ Hamilton

The Game Plan for Hamilton – with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)
Today’s Hamilton may be jam-packed full of near-to-certain winners or it may be quite a bit trickier than it seems on paper. I’ve opted to avoid most potential pitfalls by trying to isolate a Best Bet @ Black Figure Odds, a Best Value that looks way over the odds, 1 Money Race and some Quads.


Best Bet ($50 Win)
Rogue Assassin (Race 9 no. 2) $2.50
This bloke beat a couple of handy ones two starts back then battled on bravely after doing all the work at Geelong last time out. He gets the ideal draw here and so long as he doesn’t get shuffled back in transit he should get the job done today.

Best Value ($25 Each Way)
El Paco (Race 7 no. 3) $7
This guy has been absolutely low flying of late and should probably have won at Melton Friday night when never seeing daylight in the lane. I don’t think we’ll get $7 here but if we’re getting anything like it then you should get involved.

The Money Race ($50 Flexi First Fours)
Race 5
Flaming Flutter (8) looked like a machine winning first-up from a break and while this is a seriously good Tontine heat he’s a class above them I think. I also think that Gotta Go Yankee (1) has heaps of ability and should join the red hot favourite on the dais today.

8/ 1/ Field/ Field. $40 gets 200%
8/ Field/ 1/ Field. $10 gets 50%

The Quads (x4)
2,3,4,5/ 8/ 6/ 3. $20 gets 500%
2,3,4,5/ 8/ 6/ 6,8,10,11. $40 gets 250%
2,3,4,5/ 8/ 4,5,7,8,9/ 3. $50 gets 250%
2,3,4,5/ 8/ 4,5,7,8,9/ 6,8,10,11. $40 gets 50%

The Game Plan for Hamilton with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV)
Best Bets ($100 All Up Win)
(Race 1 No.5 Ardlussa Express)

This guy was well supported at his first run in Australia at Ballarat last start. He settled well back in transit then ran home pretty well in a race where they recorded very good time and his opposition was much stronger than what he meets today. I expect him to have taken benefit out of that first up run and be very hard to beat here.
 

(Race 5 No.8 Flaming Flutter)

This guys win first up at Ballarat where he sat parked outside the leader before reeling off a last half of 54.7 was ultra impressive. If he repeats that run here today he should be winning again.
 

Best Value ($35 Each Way)

(Race 8 No.9 Your Invited)

This guy finished a narrow second three runs back against similar opposition to what he meets here today. His two runs since then have been okay against better quality opposition. From the draw he should end up in a perfect spot trailing the speed today and should be the one finishing off strongest in the lane.
 

The Money Race

Race 6 ($50 Flexi First 4’s)

6/ 5,7,9/ 4,5,7,8,9/ 4,5,7,8,9 $32 gets 88.89%

Good Form Preview - Tuesday @ Echuca

The Game Plan for Echuca - with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)

After a pleasing return @ Beckley Park yesterday I'm hoping we can have a real breakout week, but tonight's meeting is tough and rather than play on individual runners, I'm going to target the exotics with three Money Races and some Quads looking the way to go.

The Money Races

Race 1

On face value, this is the best betting race of the night, which is why I'm throwing the most cash at it. Put simply, I don't see them crossing Changeable (1) at the start and if he leads and Desiring Bella (7) can hold his back they should really finish one-two tonight. Sir Roy (2) is another key runner as he may be better than his formline would suggest while Exotic Guy (6) & Glenburn Red (9) are the other key runners engaged.

1,7/ 1,7/ 2,6,10. $78 gets 1300%
1,7/ 2,6,10/ 1,7. $22 gets 366.67%

Race 6

I'd like to think the Speed Map here is fairly easy to read as Linora Dawn (2) should push forward and find the front with Narryna Jetstar (1) on her back. If that happens they should dominate the race.

2/ 1/ 6,7,9,10. $30gets 1000%
1/ 2/ 6,7,9,10. $10 gets 250%
2/ 6,7,9,10/ 1. $10 gets 250%

Race 7

This is by far the most specualtive of my three Money Races tonight but the theory here is that Doey Doeback (3) will spear across Chiquita Bromac (1) at the start and they will control the race from there, ao long as some classy second line runners don't force the issue mid-race. There are no guarantees but we'll make some good folding if things pan out to plan.

3/ 1/ 5,8,9,10,11. $25 gets 500%
3/ 5,8,9,10,11/ 1. $20 gets 400%
1/ 3/ 5,8,9,10,11. $5 gets 100%

The Quads (x4)

1,4,6,7,8,10,11/ 5/ 2/ 3. $26.50 gets  378.57%
1,4,6,7,8,10,11/ 5/ 2/ 1,9,10,11. $42 gets 150%
1,4,6,7,8,10,11/ 5/ 1/ 3. $10.50 gets 150%
1,4,6,7,8,10,11/ 7,9/ 2/ 3. $21 gets 150%

Good Form Preview - Manic Monday @ Beckley Park

The Game Plan for Geelong - with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)

Best Bet ($50 Win)

Givemeaspell (Race 5 no.1) $2.50

Top flight trainer Andy Gath has a pretty big opinion of this fellow and after an outstanding performance when sitting parked last time out he'll only have to hold the early lead or re-take that role early in proceedings to prove a shade too good for this lot here today.

Best Value ($25 Each Way)

Action Royale (Race 3 no.1) $7

This mare has always been a total short course specialist and her last two runs have been a great indication that she's back to her very best form. I expect her to lead from the polemarking alley but even if she allows Lierre Nori to spear across her she should still either win or finish in the money.

Best Roughie ($10 x $40)

Ruben Hall (Race 8 no.5) $26

This is a very speculative bet but it may also be very rewarding. In short, I am relying upon the fact that the switch to team Sugars for this reasonably talented pacer could be the catalyst for sharp improvement here.

The Money Race - Race 3

The two key runners here, both from a talent and speedmap perspective, are Action Royale (1) and Lierre Noir (3). They'll either be leader/behind leader or both in the first four and from there I expect they'll both figure on the dais. All Aussie Star is a clear third pick from the gate and there are only a couple of other runners who can figure in the money.

1,3/1,3/8. $40 gets 2000%
1,3/8/1,3. $10 gets 500%
1,3/1,3/4,9. $40 gets 1000%
1,4/4,9/1,3. $10 gets 250%

The Quads (x4)

5,7/1/5,9/5,6,10,12. $32 gets 200%
5,7/1/3,6,7,8/5,6,10,12. $32 gets 100%
1,3,6/1/5,9/5,6,10,12. $24 gets 100%
1,3,6/1/3,6,7,8/5,6,10,12. $12 gets $25%

Good Form Preview - Ouyen Cup Day


The Game Plan for Ouyen with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV).
Best Bet ($100 Win)
(Race 3 No.4 Evening Star Lombo)
This mare had no luck at her first run back from a break where she was caught up on the pegs from her inside second row draw. Her form prior to a break was very strong and she should be able to use her early speed and find the lead and be very hard to beat.
Race 6 Flexi Trifectas ($50)
1,7/ 1,7/ 2,3 $30 gets 750%
1,7/ 2,3/ 1,7 $20 gets 500%

Good Form Preview - TGIF @ HQ

The Game Plan for Melton – with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)

As has become standard in recent weeks, tonight’s Tabcorp Park programme is more entrĂ©e than main with the Ballarat Pacing Cup set down for tomorrow night, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make some folding from the card. To kick things off I’m going to have a little All-Up with two horse I can’t see losing and two others I can’t see missing a hole. We’ll have to wait a while but we can also top up w three consecutive Money Races toward the end of tonight’s monster 11-race programme while having a decent crack at a Quad which should pay anything at all given the tricky nature of almost every leg.

Best Bets/All-Up ($100)

Mister One Two (Race 4 no. 4) $3.50 (Place)
I’ve top tipped this bloke but he’s more of a value proposition than a dead-set moral. I’m happy to declare that in tonight’s race, where he’ll lead or sit parked and his major rivals are both on the long. Arduous comeback trail he almost couldn’t miss a drum here if he tried.

Jaccka Murphy (Race 5 No. 4) $4 (Place)
I’m not sure the Alison Chisholm camp is travelling quite as well as it was a couple of months back but I’ve still got a fair opinion of this bloke and in a race where you can throw a blanket over them for ability, he will find the pegs first, either lead or trail from there and with the Sprint Lane exit he could not utilise last time out, he’ll almost certainly figure on the dais.

Quick Draft (Race 8 no. 5) $1.90 (Win)
This filly actually broke the Melton record for 3YO pacers last start, it’s just that she ran into an outstanding prospect in Punch Line who narrowly beat her home. Tonight she’ll be rolling on to find the top and even with the very smart Bettors Package (8) among her rivals she should be a shade too good.

V C Manoeuvre (Race 9 no. 7) $1.50 (Win)
This bloke drops in grade form starting favourite in the SA derby last start to taking on C1 rivals so he’ll only have to pace throughout to win.

The Money Races
Race 7

This is probably the riskiest of our three Money Races but it also may yield the greatest reward. Simply put, Broadways Best (6) &  Melpark Major (7) have any amount of class on their rivals and I’m tipping one of them will win and both will figure on the podium tonight. Renaissance Man (1) is a clear third pick but he’s been through a lot and isn’t the most reliable commodity these days.

6,7/ 6,7/ 1. $20 gets 1000%
6,7/ 1/ 6,7. $10 gets 500%
6,7/ 6,7/ 3,4,5,8. $20 gets 250%
6,7/ 3,4,5,8/ 6,7. $10 gets 125%

Race 8
As mentioned above, Quick Draft (5) looks to have this at her mercy but I have also got a huge opinion of Bettors Package (8). There’s certainly some little risk that the latter horse will beat the former but if things go to plan he’ll finish just behind our top tip.

5/ 8/ 1,2,7. $45 gets 1500%
5/ 1,2,7/ 8. $15 gets 500%

Race 9
VC Manoeuvre (7) should be a class above his rivals in this while the key place hopes are Guggenheim (8) who is an ultra-consistent type and On Fire Within (4) who went well at this track last start and looks the leading candidate to find the peg-line first.

7/ 8/ 4. $18 gets 1800%
7/ 4/ 8. $12 gets 1200%
7/ 8/ 1,2,3. $18 gets 600%
7/ 1,2,3/ 8. $12 gets 400%

2,4,6,7,8/ 4,5,6,7,9,10,11/ 5,6,9/ 6,7. $70 gets 33.33%
2,4,6,7,8/ 4,5,6,7,9,10,11/ 1,3,8,10/ 6,7. $50 gets 17.86%

The Game Plan for Melton with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV).

Best Bet ($100 Win)

(Race 4 No.4 Mister One Two)
This guys run last start was super, he did it tough outside the leader but never gave up trying and was only narrowly defeated at the line. I expect him to work forward to night and look for the lead. If he gets the lead he will be extremely hard to beat but even from the breeze he will be right in the finish.

Good Form Preview - Thursday Night @ Shepparton


The Game Plan for Shepparton with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV).
Best Bets ($100 Win)
(Race 6 No.4 Kamwood Dawn)
This mare was forced to go back from her wide draw against much stronger opposition and she was never a realistic winning chance. Her win prior to that Charlton was full of merit and she should find herself in a nice spot from her good draw today and be right in the finish.
(Race 7 No.2 Scruffy Major)
This guys run at his first run back at Kilmore was super behind strong opposition from a tough second row draw. He draws the front line tonight against weaker opposition and he will have taken benefit from the first up run and looks very hard to beat.
Best Value ($50Win)
(Race 8 No.4 Splendid Choice)
This guy showed blistering early speed and led last start before surrendering the lead to short favourite and eventual winner The Court Jester in his handy placing here at Shepparton on Cup night. If he begins as well as he did last start tonight he will find the lead and in an open race he will prove hard to run down with a repeat of his last start performance.

Good Form Preview - Thursday @ Cranbourne


The Game Plan for Cranbourne with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV).
Best Bets ($75 Win)
(Race 3 No.3 Intergalactic)
This guy gets his chance to notch up his second win here today. He was game in his narrow defeat at Melton last start after leading and he should be able to find the lead quite easily and his only real danger THESE DAYS (4) will most likely have to sit parked to beat him.
(Race 5 No.4 Don’t Wanadie)
This guy has shown plenty of ability since arriving on Australian soil from NZ. His win last start was full of merit where he made his own luck. I expect him to press forward here and end up finding the lead and be extremely hard to beat.
(Race 8 No.5 Apollo Thirteen)
This guy is a former NSW pacer who won a recent trial here at Cranbourne in preparation for his first outing for Michael Hughes. There was plenty to like about his win at Penrith back in August of last year where he did his fair share of work but was still strong at the finish and was too good. Expect him to press forward here and look for the lead or the breeze and be hard to beat.

This bloke is the best horse in this race, he can do a few things wrong and he mixes his form a little but I expect him to continue pressing forward from his wide front row draw tonight and either find the lead or the spot outside the leader and be much to good for his opposition.
(Race 7 No.2 Clancys Fobwatch)
This guy recently took out the Snowball Series in dominant fashion and made it five wins from as many starts since returning from a break. He meets a strong field tonight but if he repeats his recent form he should be making it six from six from his good draw.
Best Value ($25/$25)
(Race 5 No.1 Drop Us A Line)
This mare has been ticking along nicely in recent times. She draws the front line tonight and looks a really strong chance of breaking thru as her main rival on paper appears to be Paparazzi Snapshot who has to give her a 40m head start, which is a huge amount of ground to make up around this tight track if Drop Us A Line can negotiate the start safely.
Best Roughie ($10/$25)
(Race 1 No.7 Rising Power)
This guys form is better than how it actually reads in the form guide. Two runs back he was trapped wide for the majority of the race then locked wheels at a crucial stage. Last start he copped a severe check just after the bell and lost significant ground. He finds himself in a very even race tonight and is worth a small bet each way at what is most likely going to be a big price.

Best Bet ($100 Win)
(Race 7 No.4 Western Gretel)
This tough mare hasn’t had much go right for her from poor draws at her past few starts. Her form prior to that was very good and she shouldn’t have too much trouble finding the lead or the spot outside the leader today from her front row draw and from either spot she  should have too much class for her opposition.

Good Form Preview - Tuesday @ Swan Hill

The Game Plan for Swan Hill – with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)

Tonight’s Swan Hill programme is both tricky and enticing all at the same time. There is some temptation to attack just a couple of races but I think if we spread the load it should make for an enjoyable, and profitable, night out on the punt.

Best Bets/All-Up ($50)
Turnoffate (7) & Bettor Move (8) – Race 1 Quinella
Two horse races are not that rare in the trots, but ones this definitive are. I really can’t see how these two pacers won’t draw away and fight this race out and given the fact that they’re both drawn awkwardly I’m hoping we can get better than $2 about the Quinella.

Thats Rite (Race 3 no. 7) $1.65
This bloke won the Tatlow stakes last season and while he can mix his form a little he has panels on these for class, as evidenced by the fact he’s a five-time winner in a CO only race.

Best Value ($15 x $10)
Bad Boy Hughie (Race 2 no. 5) $7.50
This bloke’s last couple have been very good and in a race with very mixed formlines I’d rather be on him Each Way than Presidentialsecret (7) one-out.

Cruzin Sprocket (Race 4 no. 6) $7
I’ve been following this bloke w/. an eagle eye of late and he is ready to win. Not only has he rattled home in two of his past three but with s stack of speed engaged inside him here he looks a great chance of swooping on tired rivals late.

Best Roughie ($5 x $20)
Saabrina Miss (Race 5 no. 1) $10
I’m expecting some cat-and-mouse tactics in this race and with Chris Alford aboard and the huge advantage given to inside horses over the 1609m trip at this course I think this girl’s worth a little 1x4 attack.

The Money Races
Race 3

As mentioned above, Thats Rite (7) looks over the line here and The Love Child (5) is a clear second pick.

7/ 5/ 6. $26 gets 2600%
7/ 5/ 1,4. $12 gets 600%
7/ 6/ 5. $12 gets 1200%

Race 6
This is a race of three big guns in Shez A Spy (1), Cool Machrista (4) and Dieing Secret (5). All things being equal they should fight out the finish although Oils Jay Bee (8) has talent and draws to be in the right spot if he’s good enough.

1,4,5/ 1,4,5,8/ 1,4,5,8. $36 gets 200%
1,4,5/ 1,4,5,8/ 2,3. $14 gets 77%

The Quads (x4)
2,3,4,6/ 2,3/ 1,4,5/ 1,2,9. $36 gets 50%
2,3,4,6/ 2,3/ 1,4,5/ 3,7,10. $14 gets 19.44%
2,3,4,6/ 1,4,5,6,7,10/ 1,4,5/ 1,2,9. $36 gets 16.67%
2,3,4,6/ 1,4,5,6,7,10/ 1,4,5/ 3,7,10. $14 gets 6.48%

Good Form Preview - Manic Monday @ Maryborough

The Game Plan for Maryborough – with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)

I could hardly think of a better way to kick off Ballarat Cup week than today’s Maryborough card, which is highlighted by two outstanding Central Vic Championship finals for the pacers and the trotters and a super support card where we should be able to jag a tidy result. You could probably go hog-wild today but I’m sticking w/ 1 Best Bet, 2 Value Bets, 1 Best Roughie plus a Money race and some Quads.

Best Bet ($50 Win)
Franco Jackson (Race 3 no. 2) $3.50
This bloke is no superstar nut he really gets conditions to suit today. A brilliant beginner from the mobile start, he should be in front within 30m of the start and w/ no obvious enforcer engaged to push him harder than Kate Gath wants to go I think he’ll  pinch a breather and he’ll pinch the race.

Best Value ($25 Each Way)
Ginger Bliss (Race 6 no. 6) $10
I can guarantee this bloke will not be qt $10 here but regardless of that I’m happy to back him at a much, much shorter quote. Put simply, he is one of Australia’s fastest beginners and if he finds the front within 100m of the start his class, which was highlighted with an excellent recent trial win will be the difference here.

Bushrod (Race 7 no. 8) $5.50
This bloke was in sensational nick prior to everything going wrong last time out. If he returns to the form which saw him go gangbusters in his first three Aussie starts he can lead these around and prove a shade and give them something to catch.

Best Roughie ($10 x $15)
Asdenro (Race 8 no. 5) $11
Despite his maiden status, this bloke wasn’t a million miles away from Victoria’s best juvenile trotters last term and after trialling successfully at this track 8 days back he’s well worth a wager if anything close to his Herald Sun odds.

The Money Race – Race 5 (Flexi Trifectas for $50)

This will be a super race to watch and I think the three big guns in Unico Crown (2), The Boss Man (3) and Quite A Moment (12) will fight things out for sure.
2,3,12/ 2,3,12/ 2,3,4,5,9,12. $38 gets 158.33%
2,3,12/ 2,3,12/ 1,6,10,11. $12 gets 50%

The Quads (x4)
3,7/ 2,3,12/ 6/ 7,8. $30 gets 250%
3,7/ 2,3,12/ 6/ 3,6,10. $18 gets 100%
3,7/ 2,3,12/ 1,2,5,8,9/ 7,8. $60 gets 100%
3,7/ 2,3,12/ 1,2,5,8,9/ 3,6,10. $17 gets 18.89%

Good Form Preview - Sunday @ Geelong


The Game Plan for Geelong-with Andrew Evans (@AndrewEvansHRV)
Best Bets ($100 Win)
(Race 6 No.12 Missanger Management)
This bloke did a stack of work at Melton last start and as a result weakened over the concluding stages. His prior two seconds were behind top class horses and he is the one to beat here despite the tricky wide second row draw, around this track.
(Race 7 No.9 Asoka)
This guy has been close up behind some really good pacers at his past few runs and he gets his chance to break through for a win here despite meeting some strong opposition. He should get a nice run through at the start as he’s drawn behind a good beginner so he should end up in a good spot.  
Money Races
Race 4
1,6,8/ 1,6,8/ 1,6,8/ 3,9 $35 gets 583.33%

Good Form Preview - Shepparton Gold Cup Card

The Game Plan for Shep Cup Night - with Jason Bonnington (@jasonbonnington)

As awesome as the racing is @ Quest Racing Complex tonight, the real key for us will be to avoid temptation and target only the races we can make a killing from. There are likely to be at least four Red Figure favourites on the programme but I am only truly bullish about two of them so I'll be targetting both those blokes in a little All-Up and 2 of my 3 Money Races while we'll also have a good dip at the Quads as per usual.

Best Bets/All-Up ($100)

The Court Jester (Race 2 no. 5) $1.80

This guy was a dominant winner in his heat of this series and should get things even easier tonight given he'll work to the lead pretty early on. He is only three so he's not over the line but with ordinary luck I think he'll prove a shade too good.

My High Expectations (Race 5 no. 6) $1.40

One can only marvel @ the fact that this guy opened at $1.60 w/ TAB given he's an absolute dead-set, put-your-bet-on-and-stay-in-the-queue moral. It's dangerous for form experts to declare any horse, anywhere but the circumstances here, which will almost certainly see this guy leading within 150m of the start, should ensure only an act of God will see him go down tonight.

The Money Races

Race 2

We're putting a fair deal of weight on The Court Jester (5) but I think he can handle it & if he wins there are just three key hopes to fill the other placings.

5/ 6,12,13/ 6,12,13/ 3,6,12,13. $24 gets 200%
5/ 6,12,13/ 6,12,13/ 1,4,7,8. $26 gets 108.33%

Race 5

As mentioned above, I couldn't be more sure that My High Expectations (6) will win this race and with stablemate Cold Sister (3) likely to lob right in behind him I'm almost as sure that she will also figure on the podium.

6/ 3/ 9. $30 gets 3000%
6/ 3/ 5,8. $30 gets 1500%
6/ 9/ 3. $20 gets 2000%
6/ 5,8/ 3. $20 gets 1000%

Race 10

I'm not quite as bullish that Maori Time (2) will roll home here purely because she's a trotter resuming from a break, but really, she should be much, much too good here with only a couple of others likely to join her on the dais.

2/ 1/ 7. $20 gets 2000%
2/ 1/ 3,5,6. $15 gets
2/ 7/ 1. $15 gets 1500%

The Quads (x6)

6,10/ 6/ 3/ 6,7,10. $43 gets 716.67%
6,10/ 6/ 7/ 6,7,10. $12 gets 200%
6,10/ 6/ 1,4/ 6,7,10. $12 gets 100%
6,10/ 6/ 3/ 4,8,9. $21 gets 350%
6,10/ 6/ 7/ 4,8,9. $6 gets 100%
6,10/ 6/ 1,4/ 4,8,9. $6 gets 50%
