Daily Dogs – Saturday, September 11

The Gardens: Race 4 (7:43pm)
No. 1 Melissa's Legend

Melissa’s Legend simply couldn’t have been more impressive on debut, and he can begin his rise through the grades at The Gardens tonight.

The son of Fernando Bale jumped well and went straight to the lead from Box 5 here last week, making every post a winner and recording a smart win.

He can go straight to the lead again tonight and will be tough to catch.

The Gardens: Race 6 (8:21pm)
No. 1 Tiri Levi

Tiri Levi is another chaser whose claims on winning have been enhanced by his drawing of Box 1.

The son of Spring Gun charged in to score an impressive win at Taree who starts back, and he was checked out of his last race almost immediately, which I am happy to forgive.

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

The Gardens: Race 8 (9:02pm)
No. 6 Battling Mavis

Battling Mavis is chasing a third win in succession when she steps out at The Gardens tonight, and she looks capable of pulling it off.

The daughter of Black Magic Opal has been a model of consistency all prep, but her last two performances, both dominant wins in fast time suggested that she has found peak condition.

If she steps well, I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish.

The Gardens: Race 10 (9:35pm)
Same Race Multi

Top Quality has recorded three wins from as many starts since debuting, and he looms as the runner to beat again in the tenth at The Gardens tonight.

Top Quality stamped himself as a chaser to follow with an easy win on debut at Newcastle, and he has only improved in two tougher contests in the wake.

I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with Burned running into the first three and Zipping Chanel running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 6 Top Quality (Win)
  • 8 Burned (Top 3)
  • 1 Zipping Chanel (Top 4)
