The race is supported with some very competitive contests where there looks to be plenty of value. We've picked out the best three bets to have on your side.
  
THE STRAIGHT OUT BET
Race 5 - No 8 Woodlea Beau (Ladbrokes Australia)

A former New Zealander making it's debut in Australia, it has built up an impressive record. It looks ideally placed tonight for an ambush. Drawn perfectly to follow through likely leader Soho McCartney, it will have the last sprint at them via the sprint lane. With Eliseos Falcon drawn wide and a noted death seat bully, the pace will be on and that should give Woodlea Beau every opportunity. 

EACH-WAY ALL DAY
Race 8 - No 7 Susie Badlands (Luxbet)

A very weak bunch of horses in this race but I think Susies Badlands has the most upside of the lot. A 4yo mare, she has been sparingly raced only having 4 starts for one second. That came last start, where she was first up over the sprint trip. She ran home nicely off a fast speed only beaten 3 metres. I believe this race is weaker to what it raced against last start and looks to be the value in the race. 

THE ROUGHY
Race 7 - No 8 Garnet River (Unibet Australia)

This 7yo doesn't win out of turn too often but I was really impressed with its run against Smoken Up last start. First up for a few months it followed Smoken Up everywhere over the unsuitable 2240 metres and stuck to it's guns well only being beaten 5 metres. Tonight he draws perfectly to follow favourite Five Star Anvil over the sprint trip, the distance he races best. If the favourite holds the lead, Garnet River will be sitting right behind it awaiting the sprint lane.  At the big odds, worth an each-way ticket.
