Daily Dogs – Thursday, December 3

Dapto: Race 4 (8:13pm AEDT)
No. 3 Light And Lily

Light Lily is seeking a hat-trick of wins when she contests the fourth at Dapto tonight, and I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish again.

The daughter of Barcia Bale has continued to improve with each start this campaign, but her last two efforts, both at this track and distance have suggested that she has found peak condition.

She can put herself on the speed from Box 3 and she will give them something to chase.

Dapto: Race 6 (8:55pm AEDT)
No. 7 Rapallo

Heat 2 for the Dapto Megastar is as wide open as you like, and Rapallo has genuine claims on winning at a price ($12 at publish).

The son of Oaks Road has been a strong and consistent performer this preparation and hasn’t missed placing at his last seven starts, charging home to score in slick time at Goulburn last time out.

This is obviously a rise in class, but he is up to it, and he’ll just need even luck in running to be in the finish.

Dapto: Race 7 (9:19pm AEDT)
Same Race Multi

Simon Told Helen will contest Heat 3 of the Dapto Megastar series as is clearly the runner to beat.

Simon Told Helen is one of, if not the best chaser currently going around in Australia, and he enters this race off the back of another strong second placing in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup Final.

There isn’t much value left in his quote, so I’m instead going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi.

For value, I’m also going top select Ebby Jet Power to finish in the first three and Drink Moet to finish in the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 3 Simon Told Helen (Win)
  • 2 Ebby Jet Power (Top 3)
  • 8 Drink Moet (Top 4)
Dapto: Race 9 (10:05pm AEDT)
No. 8 Due West

Due West has returned some eye-catching performances recently and looks the runner to beat in Race 9 at Dapto tonight.

The classy son of Fernando Bale recorded consecutive and dominant wins at Bulli and here at Dapto two and three starts back, and he was last seen flying home to finish just over two lengths fourth in a tougher race at Wentworth Park, having missed the jump.

I like that his runs have been spaced, and he requires just even luck from out wide to be in the finish again.
