RACE 4 CHICKEN PARMAGIANA MAIDEN 2:21 PM (1410M)
We have a bit of time for the Vern Brockman-trained GATTLING, who looks ideally placed to break maiden status. Forget the lightly raced four-year-old went around at Pinjarra last start when, after over racing early and dealing with saddle issues, finished a fair way down the track. The start prior he produced a huge effort when after being wide throughout finished second behind the handy Puro D’oro, From a handy draw here, the son of Fath should take a stack of beating and you should get a nice price. FEMME DE CLASSE comes through similar form lines as GATTLING. Two starts back she finished a half-length behind our on-top selection after a tough run throughout, before finishing fourth at Pinjarra last time out. We expect to see KENSINGTON ABBEY push forward with veteran hoop Danny Miller on board. The Arthur Mortimer-trained filly has two places from her last four runs and has drawn nicely on the inside, while we’ve thrown the Adam Durrant-trained BAR ROOM BEK in on trust despite not showing much at two trials. William Pike takes the ride and it’s hard to ignore the Durrant-Pike combination.
Suggested Bet: (2) GATTLING each way.
