THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT
Friday 3 December
First : Win – BENCHESTER
Bendigo Race 4 Box 4 425m 3:53pm
TAB fixed odds: $2 Win
Second : Win – KRAKEN SUE
Bendigo Race 6 Box 1 500m 4:33pm
TAB fixed odds: $3.10 Win
The Watchdog says : BENCHESTER (4) will appreciate the empty draw inside and he should sit outside the red for most of the journey before proving too strong in the run home. KRAKEN SUE (1) can be a tad hard to follow, however she loves racing here and she will be primed for a bold first up showing.
Multi price: $6.20
First : Win – MR. AMERICA
Bendigo Race 7 Box 3 425m 4:57pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.22 Win
Second : Win – ALPINE BUTTERFLY
Sale Race 4 Box 4 440m 7:54pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.65 Win
Third : Place – PAY THE PRINCE
Sale Race 7 Box 2 440m 8:54pm
TAB fixed odds: $1.45 Place
The Watchdog says : MR. AMERICA (3) is an absolute beast, and he should account for his rivals quite easily today. ALPINE BUTTERFLY (4) is a huge prospect and she lit up the clock at Warragul last time out. With an empty draw outside, she should avoid crowding and that will allow her to assume control in the initial stages. PAY THE PRINCE (2) has tremendous mid-race pace and with TWO FACE (1) expected to lead, he should get a nice run through and hit the scoreboard.
Multi price: $2.91
$2 Exacta – 4 / 3,6,7,8 (50%)
Geelong Race 7 460m 9:08pm
The Watchdog says : WEBLEC RAIDER (4) is a powerful type, and he will appreciate the empty draw on his outside, so with an ounce of luck early, he should get the cash. LUCA’S JEBRYNAH (6) and LITTLE TIGER (8) are the obvious choices for second, however BALBINA BALE (3) and RANAKO BALE (7) are both capable types and may add some value.
$1 Trifecta – 4 / 8 / 5 (100%)
Must Watch Race
Geelong Race 9
The Watchdog says : ASTON FLAME (4) captured the Shepparton 385m track record last time. BLAZING NENNA (8) can settle in second and hold on for the quinella spot. GUNAI REBEL (5) is the obvious choice for third.
‘Must Watch Race’ Preview :
ASTON FLAME (4) has been superbly placed to date having won 12 of 21 (57 percent) and she recently added the Shepparton 385m track record to her impressive CV. She takes on a handy line-up tonight, however with the empty draw inside, she should have no trouble assuming control in the initial stages, and another scintillating run could be on the cards. The current track record is held by former superstar ASTON BOLERO at 22.01sec. I don’t think she can get down to that, however a sub 22.20sec run could be on the cards.
The Watchdog’s selections: 4 – 8 – 5 – 1
