EXPERTS PINPOINT THE WINNERS
JUSTIFY (R5 No. 9) has put in two good runs this prep and is ready to break through. He had a tough day at the office first-up when taken on for the lead the whole way, running about in the straight and losing second spot on protect, then stuck on well behind
flying Vienna Power who raced well the weekend. He’s drawn well and will go close.
I thought BEAT THE BEAST (R8 No. 7) was a sneaky chance in the last on Saturday when he didn’t make the cut and finds himself in easier company tomorrow. He got through ground on his home track last time to post a narrow win the heavy, and at his previous run on rain affected won by 10 Rockhampton. It’s not an overly strong Bm65 while we won’t get anything like the $14 on offer on Saturday, he’ll definitely be at backable odds. BEAU ARROW (R9 No. 1) pulled up lame when gunning for his hat-trick at Doomben at the end of last month and is worth sticking with on an each way basis. He was unbeaten in three starts up until then, with two victoires on this track and one in soft going, and with the claim looks nicely placed.
