Daily Dogs – Friday, July 2

Richmond: Race 5 (8:40pm)
No. 2 Barooga Franky

Barooga Franky will take winning form into the fifth at Richmond tonight and looks well placed to make it two in a row.

The son of Lightning Frank has continued to improve with each effort recently, and he was rewarded for his building conditions with a lovely win over 400m last time.

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

Richmond: Race 6 (8:59pm)
Same Race Multi

This shapes as another very winnable race for Zipping Virginia.

Zipping Virginia looks to have found peak condition, and she has won two of her last three starts in impressive fashion, finishing second on the other occasion.

There isn’t a lot of value left in her win quote, so I am instead going to select her as the winner in a Same Race Multi and pump up my odds with Remas Fernando finishing in the first three and All Abot Mia finishing in the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 2 Zipping Virginia (Win)
  • 1 Remas Fernando (Top 3)
  • 6 All About Mia (Top 4)
Richmond: Race 8 (9:35pm)
No. 3 Rocker Flyer

Rocker Flyer looks to have found top gear and can record another win at Richmond tonight.

The son of Oaks Road has been a model of consistency this prep, but was finding winning difficult until finally breaking back into the right form here last time.

He’s faced with virtually identical conditions tonight and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.

Richmond: Race 10 (10:15pm)
No. 5 Esther's Diva

If she steps well from Box 5, this shapes as a very winnable race for Esther’s Diva.

Esther’s Diva has mixed her form a little recently, but she has typically contested far tougher races than this one, and was checked out of her last two, which I am happy to forgive.

She looks to have superior box speed tonight and if she can cross the field, she’ll be tough to catch.
