RACE 7 MGIB PLATE 4:55 PM (1690M)
We always like a horse dropping back in grade, who is well weighted, and FO’ SHIZZLE ticks both those boxes. The Darren McAuliffe-trained four-year-old has had two runs back this prep and both have been in town against some talented opposition. Finished a length behind Reflectance two starts back, before facing the breeze to finish two lengths behind Baraki Beats. The rise in distance should suit and looks well in with 57.5kg. SOCIALLY UNIQUE has been racing well in stronger races than this as well, but meets FO’SHIZZLE 2.5kg worse than when they last clashed. William Pike rides and we expect to see the Alana Williams runner sit midfield from the draw, and put in a bold effort. It’s hard to ignore the form of IT’S IT. The Sharon Miller-runner is looking to make it three wins in a row and expect to see Randy Tan try and go the the front, while THE FLIRT was disappointing last start, but with an ounce of luck from a wide draw he could play a part. We also don’t mind the Daniel Pearce-trained STORMY GRACE at a price, considering she drops 4kgs after a slashing third at Ascot.
Suggested Bet: (1) FO’SHIZZLE should give each-way punters a good run for their money.
