Forbes Cup Day tips for Monday August 6

  • Confidence: 90$ Mister Marmalade; 90% Southern Strategy; 88% Paradiso Girl

We have a solo meeting in NSW today.

And from a Central West's a big one. It's the annual Forbes cup day meeting.

Forbes barely races each year so those who like to get dressed up and attend racemeetings, out there in Group 11 land, will flock to this big race day.

For the record, in the Cup this year, I like the $6.50 chance,  MISTER MARMALADE. Quick back up from unplaced run in tougher race, should see him cherry ripe to strike.


Good luck everyone.

Forbes: races on a Good 4. Rail is true.

Race 1 - 12:40PM Maiden Plate 1100m 
I just love seeing Victorian provincial runners taking on Central west bush rivals. They tend to do very well. And we have one here. Her name is SOUTHERN STRATEGY and she has placed in Victoria before being sold and spelled out west of NSW. She resumes here after a good break, and a strong trial effort against open grade horses. Has drawn well here, will be on pace most of way, and this looks a lovely race to start her country career.
SOUTHERN STRATEGY is $4.80 with CrownBet

Forbes Race 4 - 2:25PM Class 1 Handicap 1400m
Two impressive young trainers from different parts of the state can battle this out. The toppie, Good Verdict, who is trained by Cameron Crockett, was impressive when 3rd last start resuming from a spell. has a tough ask with big weight here so I have found the Nick Olive-trained Canberra visitor PARADISO GIRL. She is 3rd up, and her 2 starts this time around have been even efforts in stronger fields on the synthetic surface. nd she has no history of good runs on that surface. Has, however, very solid form when racing out in this region. Each way her all day and take the quinella.
Paradiso Girl is $15 with CrownBet
