Te Rapa 

Some open fields today. I couldn’t find any Good Confidence bets of 3/5 or better but found some good eachway bets.

Bet of the Day Race 2 3.Ruach $4.50 FF 2nd $1.60

Value bet of the Day Race 7 8. Texas $5.50 FF

Multi of the Day Ruach Top 2 $2.40 FF, with Texas Top 3 $2.10 $10 returns $50.40 Yes

Big Multi of the Day: The four below to be in the Top 3 $10 Returns $155.00 Yes 

Race 1

Confidence:2/5 1st $7.50 

12.Malfy Rosa has been going nice races up to 1400m. She ran a game third to Sharp ‘N’ Smart and Cognito! Her breeding,  having Gordons (6 wins) in her blood suggests she will excel over a middle distance. Has the early speed to settle in a handy position and looks a nice eachway bet. RP $4.50, $5.50 FF

Race 2

Confidence:2/5 2nd 2.30 

3.Ruach won at Ellerslie over 1600m in 1.34.98 last season, a good time. Last start, second up over 1400m, set a moderate pace and got run down late for third. He steps to 1500m and from the good draw should lead with Calpurnia, set a moderate tempo, and be hard to beat. RP $4, $4.50FF

Race 7 

Confidence:2/5 1st 3.10 

8.Texas has been racing against some of our best 3yo’s. Last start he jumped evenly but was snagged back and they went at a moderate tempo, She battled on ok. This time she has drawn 1 and with the same beginning can trail or be three back inner. This is a drop in class and he can drive through and get the win. RP $4.50, $5.50 FF

Race 11

Confidence:2/5 1st $2.80 

2.Phantom Dragon has had two runs. The first when he led and got swamped. The second when he settled midfield and chased home the winner in the best last 200 metres. He has drawn 1 here and looks like he can settle handy and be a good eachway chance. RP $4.00, $4.50 FF
