WEEKEND BEST & LAY
Ruthven (Caulfield R4
No.9) didn’t give up the chase when a close fourth in the Group 1 ATC Derby a few weeks ago and he’s back in Melbourne, onto dry track, taking on restricted class. Despite giving away age he’s a smart middle distance performer and is weighted to win.
Pay Up Bro (Caulfield R3
No.3) is a very consistent type but he has a bad habit of finding one or two better in his races, as he did last start at Bendigo. Possibly entitled to be favourite but there’s better value around him.
