Update 11.15 a.m.:

Head to Heads

Race 7

Poppa $1.70 to beat Klear The Deck. Yes backed into $1.40

Poppa clearly beat Klear The Deck over 1600m here in March when both had a fair run back in the field. Poppa gallops as though a Dead track

is ideal while Klear The Deck has a more extravagant higher action indicating she may prefer a wetter track. Both map to get back so with even runs, Poppa clearly rates better than Klear The Deck.

Suggested multi The Head to Head above with Race 8 5.Show Bazz a place at $2.00 $34 returned fo $10 Yes


It is always hard to make a dollar in a meeting like this, so I have previewed the quaddie and will post an update by 11.30 with any head to head or other bets.

Suggested quaddie for $25.20 for 10%: Missed first leg

R6   1, 2, 6, 7, 8, 12
R7   1, 7, 8, 11, 12, 14
R8   9
R9   1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 11

Race 6

A very open race with the bookies reflecting that with top 7 being from $5 to $11 FF

The Formpro Ratings tell us these after weight adjustments: 12-1-7-8-2-6 and they are all in the market, so that should cover that leg.

Race 7

8.Namibia Miss  is the favourite and has moved in price over night but only ranks fifth in the ratings, so is beatable. The ratings have these in order: 1-12-14-7-8-11 so in an even race, suggest sticking with them.

Race 8

We have to go short in one leg and this looks it. 5.Show Bazz yes $4.60  in his last two starts against stronger 3yo fields, he has been up on a good tempo and fought on well in above average speed ratings. Plus his Formpro Ratings have him 2 lengths clear of this field.  For this he drops back to a more suitable 1400m and the blinkers go  on. That means they are very likely to look to lead and the map says he should be able to do that, and from there, if he can get a soft time mid race, he does look well placed to be hard to run down. RP $4, $5 FF

Race 9

The ratings have these in order: 11-4-1-2-3-8-6
