Race 5 No.8 Shop Til I Drop
We had some success a few weeks back when we identified the only horse in a staying race with any acceleration, namely Jaguary. I'm thinking that Shop Til I Drop fits that mould on Saturday. She's shooting for three on the bounce and again gets into a race on the minimum. The 2nd and 3rd favourites are both grinders so with any luck I expect her to be hard to beat. Happy to wait until the day and back her Best Of The Best.
Race 8 No.1 Going Gaga
He bounced back to form well last week when hitting the Parks track again. He simply grows a leg on the surface and I think he's primed to run well again. I'm hopeful the track will give all horses their chance and despite settling back I think he can be right in the finish. Nistaan deserves to be favourite but I'd be surprised if Going Gaga doesn't replace Jahbath as 2nd pick come jump time. Happy to play 1x4 at the $7.00 and $2.30 available at present.
