RACING

A stunning day of racing to look forward to at Flemington for Mackinnon Stakes Day while locally the card at Ascot is first class.

My best bets of the weekend are as follows:

Flemington Saturday  Race 5 Number 7 Jaameh (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $4.80) : Last time out ran third behind A Prince of Arran at this track over 2500 metres in the Hotham Handicap and that form now looks excellent with A Prince Of Arran running third in the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday. Prior to that was beaten a narrow margin behind the talented Avilius. Racing well and this looks a perfect assignment at each way odds.

Flemington Saturday Race 8 Number 3 Blair House (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.10) : Charlie Appleby trained 6 year old who was excellent last start when beaten a nose behind Benbatl in the Caulfield Stakes. Benbatl has since franked that form by running a quality second behind Winx in the Cox Plate. Drawn beautifully in barrier 2 and should get the cash.

Ascot Saturday Race 1 Number 1 Pablo’s Poem (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $2.60) Quality 3 year old who stepped up to race the older horses last start and was a tremendous effort when 5th behind Stageman beaten just 1.5 lengths. Drops back to his own age group again here where he has had 4 tries for 2 wins and 2 seconds. Should get a sweet run in transit and looks hard to beat.

Ascot Saturday Race 5 Number 10 Missile Launch (TABtouch Fixed Odds Price $5) : Classy 5 year old who has won 6 of his 12 career starts and should be ready to fire at his third run back from a break. Has a great record at this track where he has had 5 tries for 3 wins and 2 placings and is 1 for 1 over this distance. Looks ready to fire and well worth an each way play.

Mandurah Friday Race 7 Number 3 Ballistic Blue (No Fixed Odds yet available) Handy chaser who had his first try over this distance at this track last week when an all the way winner in a best of night time of 27.87. Meets a field void of any early pace and gets his chance to lead throughout again. Other good chances on the night look to be 3-7 Catalonia, 6-4 Max Profit and 4-8 Abba Monelli each way.
