Wentworth Park: Race 4 (7:28pm AEDT)
No. 1 Run Like Jess

Run Like Jess has been in fine form this preparation and looks the runner to beat again in Race 4 at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Fernando Bale has won four of his last eight starts, including a particularly eye-catching performance in Brisbane two back, and he was last seen finishing second in the Group 2 Gold Sands Final.

He can go straight to the lead tonight and will give them something to chase.

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (8:34pm AEDT)
No. 8 Simon Told Helen

He is arguably the country’s best current chaser and he will take beating in the third Paws Of Thunder Heat tonight.

Simon Told Helen has been in typically smart form this time, and while he did have a rare bad run at Warragul last week, he has been right in the finish of far better races than this.

His record from out wide is good and I’m happy to take the $2.25 that is available at publish.

Wentworth Park: Race 8 (8:59pm AEDT)
Same Race Multi

Poppy Jack has gone to another level recently and can record another win at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Fernando Bale has won each of his last five starts in impressive fashion, breaking the clock at each appearance.

He can put himself on pace with his notable box speed and I am going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi.

For value, I’m also going to select Unison and Winlock On Top to both finish in the first three.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 5 Poppy Jack (Win)
  • 1 Unison (Top 3)
  • 2 Winlock On Top (Top 3)
Wentworth Park: Race 10 (9:37pm AEDT)
No. 5 Zipping Vernon

Zipping Vernon has returned some lovely efforts this campaign and looks tough to beat in the last at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Over Limit won two in a row to begin the year and was last seen filling the minors over 450m at Newcastle.

He is another runner that will appreciate an empty box on his outside and with even luck, he’ll be in the finish again.
