Race 3 No.5 - That Girl
Thought this filly's trial and jumpout were both fantastic. She crossed the line with Tubby Two Tracks, who won impressively on debut a fortnight ago, and showed great acceleration in her jumpout when partnered by Kayla Crowther. I thought the only dangers were Secret Sauce and Garner but at $3.10 I'm happy to be on That Girl. She'll settle just behind the speed and I'll be looking for that change of gears in the home straight.
Race 8 No.3 - Dexelation EW
A competitive race to end the program but I'm keen enough to play Dexelation on an each-way basis. I thought he presented to win first-up but ran out of condition, then second-up he was still three weeks between runs so should still have some improvement in him. He gets onto a soft track for the first time this preparation and maps well to sit just behind the speed off the fence in the chute start.
