Golden Slipper Day Preview

Buyer beware!

Shit tonnes of rain have washed out plenty of meetings so this weekend the fields are big and the racing is tough!

We get the Golden Slipper this weekend, hopefully and racing @ Doomben & Bendigo in Victoria. There's also some nice horses going around in Adelaide.

Let's have a look.


Righto, let's do this again - Golden Slipper Day!

I'm going to back Isotope this week in the first, I think the race sets up a little better from the draw, think this girl is a superstar, $4.20 looks nice!

Our best of the day comes up in Race 5 - you can read about that here!

The slipper looks too hard for my liking, no idea there! My only other bet on the day comes up in the last race, back something each way @ $26, Wayupinthesky. I think that's a nice open race, Jen Rules might be the danger @ $17. In fact, I'll back them both and pray for a juicy outcome!


Shitloads of rain going into the program but sunny skies up until race day now, I reckon we'll be on a Soft track.

Race 4, Bundyandcoke has been really good to us and winning in fine style. Like the gap between runs and the predicted Soft track here. Should sit just off the speed and the step up to 1350m looks ideal. It went up $7 or something, that's gone, we're getting about $4 now.

In the last race in Brisbane, Lashes has been sent north for some sun on the back. Two starts ago, this girl was 2.2L off Probabeel down in Melbourne. Pretty good form for this! Only thing is, she's dual acceptor here and in Sydney in the last, let's hope she goes here because she handles all ground, I'll concede that So Taken is a big danger but I can't believe we're getting $4.80 for Lashes. Get on!


I reckon there's a nice horse going around in the 3rd @ Bendigo on Saturday, that's Starry Legend. It was super impressive on debut and can't see any reason why it won't be winning again here. Might get better than the $2.40, Gulf of Suez the main and obvious danger.

Not much else doing in Melbourne for me on the weekend, I'll back Need New Friends ($2.25) in Race 5, but it's short, very short. Chaillot beat it last start - that's good form!

Adelaide? Well we normally do well there so I'm going to play a little all up @ Morphetville. Race 5, I'll be taking Farooq and in the feature race of the day, I'll be backing Humma Humma to get a gun run on the good track and win. That multi will pay something like $17!

It's a huge day of racing, but tread carefully!
