Fleur Brann will take winning form into the sixth at The Gardens tonight and looks well placed to make it two in a row.
The daughter of Fabregas hasn’t finished worse than second at her last four starts, but her most-recent effort was particularly slick and came at this track and distance, and from Box 5.
She needs only even luck again from the draw to fight out the finish.
Sketchy Fabio has been a strong and consistent performer recently and looms as a live chance of winning at The Gardens tonight, at a price ($8.50 at publish).
The son of My Bro Fabio recorded a lovely win from Box 1 here four starts back and has returned three competitive efforts in the wake, including a close-up third under the same conditions last week.
Happy to have an each-way play at the price, it what is a pretty open contest.
Jennifer Eccles is seeking a hat-trick of wins when she steps out in the second at The Gardens tonight.
The daughter of Nitro Burst has continued to improve with racing recently, but her last two efforts have suggested that she has found peak condition and a repeat of either would find her extremely difficult to beat again.
She can go straight to the lead and will give them something to chase.
There are some quality runners engaged for a start in the last at The Gardens tonight and this looks like a terrific opportunity to place a Same Race Multi.
Optimus Rex And Jessie Mulwee have returned some lovely efforts and recorded some lovely results recently, and the chances of both dogs winning this race were boosted when they drew Boxes 1 & 2 respectively, so I’m going to select both to finish in the Top 2.
For value, I’m also going to select Leopard Tree to finish in the Top 4.
Our Same Race Multi selections are:
- 1 Optimus Rex (Top 2)
- 2 Jessie Mulwee (Top 2)
- 4 Leopard Tree (Top 4)
