Daily Dogs – Monday, February 9

Albion Park: Race 4 (8:14pm AEDT)
No. 3 Highway Gem

Highway Gem has returned some lovely efforts recently and strikes another winnable race at Albion Park tonight.

The daughter of Oaks Road has missed placings only once in her last seven appearances, scoring a smart win at this track and distance two back, most notably.

She’ll have the benefit of an empty box on her inside tonight and will take beating.

Albion Park: Race 5 (8:35pm AEDT)
Same Race Multi

Summer’s Flyer has been a strong and consistent performer this preparation and looks the one to beat again in Race 5 at Albion Park tonight.

The son of Magic Sprite has placed at each of his last six appearances, winning once, and he is another runner who has ideally conditions with empty draws on each side, so I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi.

For value, I’m also going to select Spring Chatter and Hard Marker to finish in the first three and four respectively.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 3 Summer’s Flyer (Win)
  • 5 Spring Chatter (Top 3)
  • 8 Hard Marker (Top 4)
Albion Park: Race 9 (9:57pm AEDT)
No. 4 Mumma's Machine

Mumma’s Machine has been knocking on the door of another race win and gets an opportunity at Albion Park tonight.

The son of Magic Sprite recorded consecutive wins here last month and has raced well in the wake, finishing second behind High order here last week.

With even luck from the central draw, I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish again.

Albion Park: Race 10 (10:18pm AEDT)
No. 3 Hard Taskmaster

Hard Taskmaster looks ideally suited to the conditions of Race 10 at Albion Park and is up to winning.

The son of Fabregas charged home to score two and three starts back and was simply forced to do too much work when fourth, last time out.

There doesn’t look to be much pace drawn inside, so he can go straight to the lead and will give them something to chase.
