Daily Dogs – Friday, July 9

Richmond: Race 4 (8:17pm)
No. 5 City Chick

City Chick looks well placed to return to winning form tonight.

The daughter of Fernando Bale hasn’t quite stacked up in a couple of tougher races at Wentworth Park most recently, but her form prior was excellent, and including a couple of eye-catching wins in fast time here at Richmond.

She can use her box speed to cross this field and she’ll be tough to catch.

Richmond: Race 5 (8:35pm)
No. 1 Ritza Daniel

Ritza Daniel has been undone by poor luck more than anything recently, but he has finally drawn a marble at Richmond tonight and I am happy to give him another chance.

The son of Ritza Lenny recorded consecutive wins here last month and has run into a wall of competitors several times since.

He can lob into a nice position tonight from Box 1 and might not be offered a better opportunity to win.

Richmond: Race 6 (8:58pm)
No. 2 Fire On Ice

I’m going to go slightly wider in Race 6 at Richmond tonight, and I think that Fire On Ice can and will run a race from Box 2 in the sixth.

The daughter of Fernando Bale has been a largely consistent performer this prep and has found form around some above-average chasers in some good race.

This contest maps well for the favourite Soun Of Silence, but if Fire On Ice can beat him at the jump, I think she’ll prove tough to catch.

Richmond: Race 7 (9:17pm)
Same Race Multi

She has drawn awkwardly in Box 5, but this still shapes as a very winnable race for Ivy Conniving.

Ivy Conniving was checked out of her last race and didn’t finish, but she returned plenty of eye-catching efforts earlier in her prep, including a smart win from a central draw at Wentworth Park.

There isn’t a lot of value left in her win quote, so I’m instead going to select her as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with Furious Blaze running into the first three and Shakalaka running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 5 Ivy Conniving (Win)
  • 1 Furious Blaze (Top 3)
  • 3 Shakalaka (Top 4)

Daily Dogs – Cup Night Edition

Albion Park: Race 5 (7:43pm)
No. 2 Im Explosive

I’m Explosive looks to have found top gear and she can record another win at Albion Park on Cup Night.

The daughter of Barcia Bale continued to improve with each effort earlier this prep before returning to winning form in dominant fashion at Ipswich two starts back.

She repeated that effort and result here at Albion Park last week and I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish again.

each way
Albion Park: Race 6 (8:07pm)
No. 5 Sir Truculent

This is an outstanding edition of the Queensland Cup and there is a case to be made for several chasers, including Sir Truculent.

Sir Truculent has been a typically strong and consistent performer all preparation, and he completed an ideal lead-in to this race with a bullish win in his heat here last week.

If he steps well from Box 5, he’ll be right in the finish again, and he looks to be the value in the field at his current quote.

best bet
Albion Park: Race 8 (9:13pm)
No. 7 Shima Shine

Simply put, he is one of the country’s best chasers and Shima Shine can record another Group 1 win in tonight’s Brisbane Cup.

The son of Barcia Bale has amassed a truly impressive win percentage of 60%, made even more stunning by the fact that he has contested 62 races since making his competitive debut.

He wasn’t troubled in his heat last week and he will take a power of beating again.

Albion Park: Race 11 (10:22pm)
Same Race Multi

Buck Or Two has been undone by poor luck at his last three starts, but he has finally drawn a marble at Albion Park tonight and can return to winning form.

The son of Thirty Talks recorded consecutive wins at Ipswich four and five starts back, but he has run into traffic at his last three and simply hasn’t been allotted the opportunity to win.

He can take up the running tonight, so I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi and pump up my odds by also including both Soda Maxi and Lucky Duke running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 1 Buck Or Two (Win)
  • 4 Soda Maxi (Top 4)
  • 7 Lucky Duke (Top 4)

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, July 7

Wentworth Park: Race 4 (8:05pm)
No. 8 Zipping Ontario

Zipping Ontario has been a strong and consistent performer recently and looms as a key winning chance in the fourth at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Superior Panama hasn’t missed placing at his last eight starts, winning in fast time over 515m three starts back most notably.

If he steps well from out wide, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

best bet
Wentworth Park: Race 5 (8:25pm)
No. 1 Drink Moet

Drink Moet has gone to another level recently and strikes another very winnable race at Wentworth Park tonight.

The daughter of Sh Avatar tuned up with a couple of fair efforts earlier in her prep before returning to winning form in a dominant fashion at Richmond in May.

Since that effort, she hasn’t looked back, winning each of her four subsequent starts with ease and in fast time.

Wentworth Park: Race 9 (9:48pm)
No. 1 Psycho Sonic

Psycho Sonic looks well placed to return to winning form at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Ando’s Magic mixed his form a little earlier in his campaign but recorded consecutive wins over 515nm at Gosford two and three starts back.

I am happy to forgive his last start miss given he was checked out of the race almost immediately and he is drawn to receive all of the favours tonight.

Wentworth Park: Race 10 (10:06pm)
Same Race Multi

Dubrovnik looks well placed to salute again at Wentworth Park tonight.

The daughter of Thirty Talks has returned several pleasing efforts recently and has found form around some talented chasers.

I’m going to select her as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with Despicable Usher finishing in the first three and Platinum Flare finishing in the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 8 Dubrovnik (Win)
  • 4 Despicable Usher (Top 3)
  • 1 Platinum Flare (Top 4)

Daily Dogs – Tuesday, July 6

Gosford: Race 4 (7:58pm)
Same Race Multi

Take The Lollies can record another win at Gosford tonight.

The son of Go Wild Teddy doesn’t win out of turn, but he also rarely runs a bad race, and this is a genuine drop in class from what he has been contesting.

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

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 3 Take The Lollies (Win)
  • 8 Sippy Sioux (Top 3)
  • 1 Little Loki (Top 4)
Gosford: Race 6 (8:38pm)
No. 1 King Power

King Power has been nothing short of outstanding since debuting and looms as the runner to beat again in the sixth at Gosford tonight.

The son of Spring Gun improved for his first two starts when debuting and simply hasn’t looked back winning each of his last four races in style.

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

Gosford: Race 7 (8:58pm)
No. 6 Wild Topaz

Wild Topaz looks well placed to record another win at Gosford tonight.

The daughter of Dyna Double One has been a strong and consistent performer this campaign, and charged home to win at Richmond two starts back before finishing third over 535m last time.

If she steps well from the potentially awkward draw, I think she’ll take plenty of beating in something like this.

Gosford: Race 9 (9:37pm)
No. 1 Simmy Sioux

Simmy Sioux looms as a key winning chance in the penultimate race at Gosford tonight.

The son of Hay Fergus has mixed his form a little this time, but his better performances have been good, and he was unlucky not to salute in a tougher race at Richmond last time.

He can find a nice position in transit tonight and will be tough to beat.

Daily Dogs – Monday, July 5

Albion Park: Race 4 (7:41pm)
No. 2 Truthiness

Truthiness will take winning form into the fourth at Albion Park tonight and looks well placed to make it two in a row.

The son of My Bro Fabio has returned plenty of pleasing efforts recently and enters this contest off the back of an eye-catching effort at the track and distance.

He’s drawn to receive all of the favours and can win again.

Albion Park: Race 5 (8:02pm)
Same Race Multi

Hopeful Bill can record another win when he steps out in the fifth at Albion Park tonight.

Hopeful Bull has been nothing short of outstanding recently and enters this race off the back of an easy win in a similar contest here last week.

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

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 3 Hopeful Bill (Win)
  • 9 Bonita Flame (Top 3)
  • 6 Black Mirage (Top 4)
Albion Park: Race 8 (9:02pm)
No. 1 Strategise

Strategise is another last-start winner who looks well placed to win again at Albion Park tonight.

The son of Allen Deed has been a strong and consistent performer all prep, and he enters this race off the back of an easy victory at Ipswich.

This is harder, but he is drawn to receive every chance again.

Albion Park: Race 9 (9:22pm)
No. 1 Hot Options

Hot Options looms as a key winning chance in Race 9 at Albion Park tonight.

The son of Fernando Bale charged in to score with ease here two starts back and after overcoming traffic, only just missed last time out.

He’ll go straight to the lead from Box 1 tonight and will give them something to chase.

Daily Dogs – Sunday, July 4

Albion Park: Race 5 (6:14pm)
No. 3 Golden Crest

Golden Crest will take winning form into the fifth at Albion Park this evening and looks well placed to make it two in a row.

The son of Worm Burner has continued to improve with racing recently, and he was rewarded for his building conditions with an easy win at Ipswich last time.

This is a little bit harder, but he’ll go straight to the lead from Box 3 and will give them something to chase.

Albion Park: Race 6 (6:36pm)
No. 4 Big Trump Banner

If he steps well from the central box, I think that Big Trump Banner will take plenty of beating at Albion Park tonight.

The son of Mister Twister has been a model of consistency this prep, and strode home to record an impressive win at Richmond two back before flashing late to finish second here last time.

He has a class edge over many of these rivals and is certainly up to winning.

Albion Park: Race 8 (7:23pm)
No. 1 Hope Sure Can

Hope Sure Can is drawn to receive all the favours in Race 8 at Albion Park tonight and can win again.

The daughter of Mepunga Blazer has won three of her last five starts, all at this track and distance, but her most recent effort in fast time was particularly eye-catching.

She too will go forward, and she’ll be tough to catch over the short trip.

Albion Park: Race 10 (8:02pm0
Same Race Multi

Mr. Denzel is a clear favourite in betting ahead of Race 10 at Albion Park tonight and with a clear run, I think he’ll be winning.

The son of Fernando Bale has had just seven starts since debuting in April, but he has more than stamped himself as a runner to follow, winning three times and finishing second on another two occasions.

There isn’t much value left in his win quote, so I’m instead going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with both Princess Rarity and Lost In Lantana running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 6 Mr. Denzel (Win)
  • 4 Princess Rarity (Top 4)
  • 7 Lost In Lantana (Top 4)

Daily Dogs – Saturday, July 3

Wentworth Park: Race 4 (7:09pm)
Same Race Multi

This shapes as another very winnable race for On The Rocks.

The daughter of El Grand Senor has been a model of consistency this prep and has missed placing only twice in his last eight starts, winning in fast time, last time out.

She’ll have the benefit of an empty box to her inside for this contest and will take a power of beating, so I’m going to select her as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with Collecting Model running into the first three and Here Comes Joe running into the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 6 On The Rocks (Win)
  • 3 Collecting Model (Top 3)
  • 1 Here Comes Joe (Top 4)
Wentworth Park: Race 7 (8:13pm)
No. 1 Wicked Flash

Wicked Flash will take winning form into the seventh at Wentworth Park tonight and is drawn to receive the gun run.

The son of Fernando Bale has continued to improve with each of his recent starts, culminating in a dominant win from Box 2 here last time.

He can lob into a nice spot again and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.

Wentworth Park: Race 8 (8:31pm)
No. 7 Sooky Lala

Sooky Lala looks to have found peak condition and can record another win at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Moreira finished second in three consecutive races before breaking back into the winner’s stall over 400m two starts back.

He replicated that effort and result under the same conditions last time, and this looks a great opportunity to secure the hat-trick.

Wentworth Park: Race 10 (9:13pm)
No. 4 Zipping Kyrgios

The talented Zipping Kyrgios can record another race win when he steps out in the last at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Aussie Infrared has been nothing short of outstanding this campaign, and he returned to winning form in dominant fashion two starts back before flashing late two finish second at Albion Park last time.

He brings a unique formline into the race and is another who will benefit from an empty box on his inside tonight.

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.

Daily Dogs – Thursday, July 1

Sandown Park: Race 4 (7:22pm)
No. 2 Empress Tears

The consistent Empress Tears can return to winning form in Race 4 at Sandown Park tonight.

The talented daughter of Fernando Bale rarely returns a poor effort, and she was particularly impressive in some decent races in Sydney, and she has really only been undone by poor luck since arriving in Victoria.

She’s rock-hard fit, drawn to effect and this looks her opportunity to strike.

Sandown Park: Race 6 (8:02pm)
Same Race Multi

Christo Bale has found top gear and can record another win at Sandown Park tonight.

The son of Barcia Bale has been nothing short of outstanding this campaign, and he has won seven of his last eight starts, finishing a close-up second on the other occasion.

I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi, and increase my value by including Shadow Mist to finish in the first three and Drako Bale to finish in the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 6 Christo Bale (Win)
  • 1 Shadow Mist (Top 3)
  • 4 Drako Bale (Top 4)
best bet
Sandown Park: Race 7 (8:25pm)
No. 1 Jarick Bale

Jarick Bale is drawn to receive the gun run in Race 7 at Sandown Park tonight and I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

The son of Allen Deed recorded dominant and consecutive wins at this track and distance three and four starts back, and he has only been undone by poor luck at The Meadows most recently.

Returning to his pet conditions tonight suits and he is my best bet on the program.

Sandown Park: Race 8 (8:49pm)
No. 2 Gypsy Yankee

This is one of the more open races on tonight’s Sandown Park program, and a chaser like Gypsy Yankee has genuine claims on winning.

Gypsy Yankee has been a strong and consistent performer throughout her campaign, and she charged home to score at this track and distance in early June; returning to winning form at Geelong most notably last time.

She can go straight to the lead from Box 2 and she’ll give them something to chase.

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, June 30

Wentworth Park: Race 4 (8:05pm)
No. 8 Where's Rocky

Where’s Rocky has been nothing short of outstanding since debuting and strikes another very winnable race at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Over Limit has made six appearances at the races since debuting in May, winning four times and finishing a close second on the other two occasions.

With even luck from out wide, he’ll take a power of beating again.

Wentworth Park: Race 5 (8:25pm)
Same Race Multi

Tarawi Harley is drawn to receive all the favours in the fifth at Wentworth Park tonight and can record another win.

The son of Fabregas hasn’t missed placing at his last seven trips to the races and enters this contest off the back of a particularly eye-catching effort in fast time at Newcastle.

I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi and build out my bet further with Silver Image running into the first three and You Know Why finishing in the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 1 Tarawi Harley (Win)
  • 7 Silver Image (Top 3)
  • 3 You Know Why (Top 4)
Wentworth Park: Race 6 (8:48pm)
No. 1 Good Odds Cash

Good Odds Cash looks well placed to record another win at Wentworth Park tonight.

The daughter of Collision has won give of her last eight starts, and her form from inside draws is understandably good.

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

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (9:09pm)
No. 3 Ebby Infrared

Ebby Infrared has been a strong and consistent performer recently and looms as a key winning chance in the seventh at Wentworth Park tonight.

The son of Aussie Infrared took a few to tune up and find consistency earlier in his campaign, but he has clearly found top gear, and he has won four of his last five starts, including two in succession leading into this contest.

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