RAY’S BEST BETS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

BEST Race 6: BET No.9 African Rain­bow Is an emerg­ing filly bring­ing good provincial form to the Bathurst meet­ing. She is only lightly raced and hasn’t been beyond 1600m but she should en­joy get­ting out to 2000m to­day. Drawn well and Greg Ryan rides.

NEXT BEST Race 1: No.4 Rea­son To Smile Has shaped well in each of her three starts, run­ning a plac­ing on each oc­ca­sion. She can use her in­side bar­rier to set­tle on the speed. Af­ter the claim, she gets in with just 53kg and is weighted to win.

VALUE Race 4: No.2 Achieved Her de­but ef­fort over 1000m at Wy­ong was sound as she worked to the line strongly to fin­ish just be­hind the placeget­ters in the maiden won by Celer. Achieved is bet­ter placed to­day par­tic­u­larly over the 1300m jour­ney.

QUADDIE R4: 1,12,13 R5: 1,5,6 R6: 1,9 R7: 1,2,6,12

JOCKEY TO FOL­LOW Greg Ryan has rid­den a cen­tury of win­ners al­ready this sea­son — he has done so every year this cen­tury ex­cept dur­ing the equine in­fluenza out­break in 200708 — and he has an­other strong book of rides at Bathurst in­clud­ing Drummed Out, African Rain­bow and Wrong Bias.

TRAINER TO FOL­LOW Bjorn Baker has a great strike rate at Bathurst and could eas­ily lead in a brace of win­ners from his only two run­ners to­day, Achieved and African Rain­bow.
