Just two well placed bets today. Both have done the times and sectionals to back with confidence. The track is a slow and both should land on the pace or even lead and that will suit on this track.
Plus, The Melbourne Storm demolished the Warriors last time they met, and I just can’t see the Warriors turning that round, despite being on their home course Melbourne $1.57 to win
Multi of the Day, Fire Show $2.90 FF to win, By Magic approx $2.40 FF place as not showing yet, and Melbourne Storm to win $1.57 $10 returns approx $109 Yes
2.Fire Show 1st $2.70 won his trial two back 2nd outer outside race rival Miss Maxipark, and soon put her away after turning in and held on to win blowing out late. Then in his latest trial, pinged to the lead with good early pace and led to the turn. Once balanced up he was asked to go and he really put in to win easing down. His time was 1.04.41 ( ignore the official time as they are hand timed) and his last 200m in 12.62 on the slow track. The Open heat was won in 1.05.40 and the last 200m in 12.69. So the figures back up the impressive trial wins and he definitely improved in fitness in that last trial win. He has a big white face and won’t be missed in running where he maps to lead or sit on it and from there, from the top Parsons stable, it is hard to see any of these out finishing him. RP $2.20, $2.90 FF
1.By Magic 2nd $2.40 last start drew out but showed good early speed to lead then trail on an even tempo. Once out and balanced, he drove hard late to almost win with daylight to the rest. 4th horse Mathieu won next up. The race time was faster than the R65 and R75 races. He has drawn 9 but the speed map shows that he can easily cross and get on the pace and I can’t see them going better than an even tempo, so fourth up and peaking, he looks a very good eachway chance in a weak maiden. RP $3.70, $6.80
