SHAYNE O’CASS’S BEST BETS OF THE DAY

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

DUBBO BEST BET Race 5: No. 3 Ey­ota Trained by Damien Lane at Wy­ong and we know from experience that he will go any­where to win a race with his string which he places with deadly pre­ci­sion. That’s the case with Ey­ota here, a horse com­ing off plac­ings at Wy­ong and Gos­ford. Drawn one and Lane has left no stone un­turned by book­ing Greg Ryan.

NEXT BEST

Race 2: No. 3 Fox­down

Is a full- brother to the one- time Dubbo res­i­dent Shi­raz. This 3YO geld­ing won a trial in bril­liant fash­ion on March 21. We could make a case for him be­ing un­lucky in both runs so far — been wide at each. He has drawn 14 here but Ryan sticks and no sur­prises there.

BEST VALUE

Race 9: No. 11 Fly Lightly The John Sin­gle­ton- owned and - bred filly is worth a for­tune in the breed­ing shed. She’s a half­sis­ter to Group 1 win­ner Fen­way and is “almost” a three- quar­ter sis­ter to More Joy­ous. Was trained by Gai Water­house, now with Rod Northam and was a mas­sive win­ner at Bin­n­away last time. Can keep climb­ing the lad­der be­fore she goes to stud.

JOCKEY TO FOL­LOW

Greg Ryan

has prob­a­bly started favourite in more jock­eys’ chal­lenges than Winx has in her races! Fair enough, too, he has a huge band of sup­ports in Punter Land and also from the train­ers. We have him down for at least two win­ners, maybe three.

SUG­GESTED BET

Quinella race 2: Nos. 2,3 All- up race 2: No. 3 into race 5: No. 3

QUEANBEYAN

BEST BET

Race 4: No. 1 Dure Was al­lot­ted 66.5kg by the hand­i­cap­pers but will carry 62.5kg af­ter the claim for the heady young up and comer Pa­trick Scorse. Dure rates 10 points ahead of his ri­vals here on the bench­mark. He is a 76er rac­ing in a Bm65 so we can’t re­ally ex­pect him to be on the limit!

NEXT BEST Race 1: No. 5 Mid­night Ser­e­nade Is a first starter by Your Song who has sired more win­ners than any other fresh­man sire this sea­son. They can all gal­lop and this one showed plenty in her lat­est trial. Nice race for her.

BEST VALUE Race 5: No. 1 Duke of Dow­nun­der Has only won one from 19 but he has placed 10 times. Has wide draw but a good jockey.
