Daily Dogs – Saturday, May 8

The Meadows: Race 5 (8:00pm)
No. 1 Crackerjack Dirt

Crackerjack Dirt has drawn to get all the favors in Box 1 after winning from an identical draw over the course and distance on Wednesday.

The son of Cutting Edge has won twice now over this trip and has plenty of fitness on his side after racing in some competitive races at Geelong two weeks ago.

After winning by 2.5L earlier in the week, the current $5.50 quote looks great value.

The Meadows: Race 7 (8:43pm)
Same Race Multi

Koblenz won by 1.5L over this track and trip last week and looks more than capable of claiming his hat-trick with plenty of early speed from the inside draw.

Invictus Rising is the logical danger as he too shoots for three in a row after winning over the track and distance by a big margin last week.

Well Grounded owns a 29.86 second PB over this course and trip and was third to Invictus Rising in that same race.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

No. 1 Koblenz (Win)

No. 3 Invictus Rising (Top 3)

No. 2 Well Grounded (Top 3)

best bet
The Meadows: Race 8 (9:02pm)
No.2 Radek Bale

Radek Bale has been tough to fault over the last month with three wins from his last four starts.

The two-year-old finished six lengths second over this track and trip two weeks ago, but I think that was the hit-out he needed rising in trip.

Fitter now and with a gap between runs, he looks tough to beat.

The Meadows: Race 11 (10:07pm)
No. 4 Jackpot

Jackpot was a clear winner here last week gapping his rivals by four lengths over the track and trip.

He’s drawn to go on with it in this small field and it helps knowing he’s scored a win second-up previously.

His win last week came in a strong time of 30.03 seconds, so he should be bursting through late.
