Update Monday 10 am
A tough week last week although while our main bets dipped out, one of the money back runners did the job for us.
Today looks another tough day at the office so be selective with your betting. I’ll have a look at the place 6 or the quaddie if there is a carry forward with a later update.
No money back offers today at Palmerston – but there are on the Wingatui harness and gallops.
Next update around 2pm.
Bet of the Day M3 R10 – Trojan Hoarse (3)
Our bet of the day last week and was never in the hunt although the draw was the concern last week. No such concerns this week and he won well at Cambridge mid week so is still in great form.
Has been the dominant week to week sprinter for some time. He’s won 8 from 11 from box 3 and he maps to get away well today.
Not a big price but for a dog with his dominant record, we can’t get greedy.
Opened at $1.80FF and you think this will shorten closer to start.
A good example of value versus price. If you’re using to punting horses, then $1.80 is pretty short. Yet as we saw here, after the first stride or two the $1.80 proved to be great value.
