Richmond: Race 5 (8:35pm)
Same Race Multi

Minter Blaze will take a power of beating in the fifth at Richmond tonight.

The son of Blazin’ Bomber has been a strong and consistent performer all prep and has typically contested far tougher races than this one.

He needs only even luck from the draw to be in the finish, so I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with Wild Topaz running into the first three and Rebelling running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 5 Minter Blaze (Win)
  • 4 Wild Topaz (Top 3)
  • 8 Rebelling (Top 4)
Richmond: Race 6 (8:58pm)
No. 3 Fire On Ice

Fire On Ice can return to winning form in the sixth at Richmond this afternoon.

The daughter of Fernando Bale has been performing well around some above-average chasers recently, and has been undone by poor luck more than anything.

She’ll go straight to the lead tonight and will give them something to chase.

Richmond: Race 8 (9:35pm)
No. 1 Simply Patches

Simply Patches is drawn to receive all the favours in the eighth at Richmond tonight and can return to winning form.

The son of Fernando Bale is another who has largely been undone by poor luck and traffic, but he won’t have any excuses tonight after finally drawing a marble.

He can go forward and will be tough to catch.

Richmond: Race 10 (10:14pm)
No. 1 Where's Rocky

Where’s Rocky looks well placed to win the tenth at Richmond tonight, particularly after scratchings.

The son of Over Limit simply doesn’t know how to run a bad race, winning five of his last eight and finishing second on the other three occasions.

He can lob into a nice spot from the rails and with even luck, he’ll take plenty of beating again.
