RACE 5 PLANET FIVE 8 INDIVIDUAL WINNERS THIS SEASON HCP 4:15 PM (1200M)
Champion trainer Jim Taylor rarely ventures south to Bunbury and in he has travelled here twice this season for a winner and a second from his two starters. With this in mind we are fairly bullish about the chances of the Taylor-trained mare RULE TO WYN, who will be having her second run back from a spell. The tough four-year-old has more than her share of ability, having won five of her 22 starts, and while the 1200 metres is as far as she wants to go, she still appears to have an edge on most of these. RULE TO WYN on top. Consistent four-year-old KAAPANDER ran his usual honest race first up at Pinjarra last start and will improve with that run under his belt. Hasn’t won for a long time but usually takes on tougher assignments than this. The danger. DE ANDES ran out of his skin in both the Pinjarra Classic and Bunbury Stakes recently, however, he hasn’t managed to match those performances when down in grade at his past two outings. Is better placed over the six furlongs here and he shouldn’t miss a place, while SECRET TIMES has a fantastic record when racing over the Bunbury 1200 metres and is capable of figuring with only 52kg on his back.
Suggested Bet: (2) RULE TO WYN to win.
