We have two meetings to focus on this Thursday, with an afternoon card at Redcliffe and Penrith under lights.
There are my best bets for the respective programs.
Race 1, No. 1: Shereacts
Short, but she should be winning. She’s a lightly raced mare that has shown good promise in her short career to date. She attempted to lead throughout here last Thursday and was grabbed late by James The Jet, who was the class factor and proved too good – just. She should lead comfortably from the pole and, barring any serious pressure applied, win.
Race 4, No. 3: Ceeyeaye
His numerical form isn’t flash, but the class of horse he has been facing is much, much stronger than what he faces here, and he does look the one to beat. He was far from disgraced last time out behind a good one in Danceinthestreet. He just has to run up to that effort to be winning here.
Race 7, No. 7: Sweet Sangria
She hasn’t really set the world on fire since coming from New South Wales but does have a decent enough trailing draw to use. She resumed here last Thursday and she wasn’t too bad in defeat behind Montana Flash. If the one horse can hold up and lead, this girl should get a trail and run a cheeky race at odds.
Sports opinion delivered daily
Race 1, No. 1: Deantana
It’s not an overly strong race to kick off the program, so I’ll go with a mare that resumes and I think strikes a winnable race for her resumption. She faced good company when last in work, much stronger than what she faces here. She has the gate speed to hold up and lead, and from there I think she’ll take some beating.
Race 5, No. 1: Posh On The Beach
It was ugly viewing if you were on him here two weeks ago. No doubt he should have won, but unfortunately for his fans, he copped a bad check at a vital stage. From pole he should lead or at worst trail his stablemate. Whatever run he gets, he is clearly the one to beat against these.
Race 7, No. 1: So Hidden
This is a 1×3 play. His career-best effort came last time out at Menangle when he finished a solid fourth. This is a very thin race and he’s drawn the pole, so I think he can land leaders back, and at more than double figures he’s worth a gamble in a race where any of them could win without it being a shock.
