Another Wednesday means we’ve got some good quality midweek racing, highlighted by day 1 of the Grafton carnival with both the Grafton Guineas and the Ramornie attracting some very strong fields.
We also have racing at Randwick-Kensington and Sandown so there is plenty of good bets to be found!
(2) Divine Eleven was a very good winner first up over 1350m and looks suited getting out to the mile here. This horse rarely puts in a poor run and has two placings from three 2nd up runs in his career. Barrier 4 is perfect and a drying Grafton track should suit him. He came from way back to reel in a handy horse in Next Dimension and while this is a slight rise in grade, this race doesn’t look extremely competitive outside the top end of the market. Only needs to take natural improvement to be a winning chance again.
(11) Write The Score broke her maiden last start at Bendigo after overcoming plenty of trouble in the straight. That was a long time coming and she has flashed ability across her career so far so hoping she may be able to go on with it now. The form out of that maiden has been very strong with the 2nd and 4th placegetters both coming out and winning their next starts. Stable is flying and Jamie Kah goes in search of her 100th win this season. Looks hard to beat.
Think you’ve got to be forgiving of (5) Promise Of Success when going under as a short-priced fav last start. That was on a very heavy track and was never likely after an unsuitable run in transit. Interested to see the stable have backed her straight up again this week and she looks a massive chance 3rd up now in Australia. The current soft 7 will be perfect and she maps for a much more economical run today with Tommy Berry to stick again from last start. Her first up win was too impressive to ignore just yet and I’m confident she bounces back today.
(9) Phobetor comes into this after a very impressive first up win which followed an equally good trial and looks to have come back in flying form. Expecting a very similar run as he had last start and so long as he gets a trail into the straight, should be good enough to round them up down the outside. Plenty of speed engaged here so I’m hoping the race will be run to suit a backmarker and this guy looks progressive.
Think (8) Palaszczuk looks very well placed back to this grade after three good performances in tougher races up in QLD. Has been building towards a peak performance and now looks ready to fire 4th up from a spell. Still very lightly raced, maps for a gun run with Andrew Gibbons to ride and has more upside than many of her key rivals here.
