After landing the best bet on Monday, the Punter’s Prince has opened the shoulders for a big day at Sale.
The best of the day comes up in race three.
sale race 1
#6 precious socks
One of the more intriguing runners on this program is four-year-old mare Precious Socks.
She is yet to break her maiden status, but that could be set to change under a new training regime.
Rhys Goodwin takes charge of her career now, and she had a slick 1000-metre jump out at Pakenham to get ready for this 1100-metre event.
She led in that effort and can highball out in front here.
Each way is the go.
Suggested Bet: Precious Socks each way at $10 for the win and $2.10 for the place.
Suggested Exotic: Quinella 4 & 6
sale race 3
Fazzabeel is having a second run after a seven-week let-up.
He returned to racing over 1400 metres, and it was a great building run to prepare himself for this 1740-metre event.
After a moderate to slow early tempo, he ran 2.5 lengths above standard time from 800 metres to the 400 metres and then sprinted home sharply to run 6.24 distances above the final 400 metres.
A set of blinkers on his near side have been applied to make sure he runs straight.
He has a much better chance than he was the last start.
Suggested Bet: Fazzabeel win at $3.3
sale race 5
Allyrock will probably want a drier track than she faced at Moe over 2400 metres the last start.
She is a rock-hard fit horse, and that is going to come in handy here with a fair bit of speed predicted for this race likely to turn it into a staying test.
The outside barrier suits her running style as she can stride from out wide without being impeded.
She stays at 59kgs as she carried in her narrow defeat at the last start and the form around her seems to be quite good.
Pierro Rosso came out at Kyneton on Monday to pinch a win.
Expect the market to form in her corner with the heavily weighted favourites in this race.
Suggested Bet: Allyrock win at $5.5
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 1, 5, 8
sale race 6
#5 kwoi hoi
Brings the best form into this race on paper.
He ran very well behind a handy type at Pakenham over the mile last start in the form of British Columba, who dictated terms out in the lead.
Considering he was second-up and slightly missed the start, it was a great effort to sustain the chase behind the winner.
That step up from 1400 metres to 1600 metres and only being at his second run this campaign probably just saw his condition give way late in the race.
He will undoubtedly be much better for the run, and the rise to 1740 metres looks as though it will be beneficial for him.
Suggested Bet: Kwoi Hoi win at $3.30
Suggested Exotic: Exacta 5 & 7
