A great day of racing coming up across the country as group and listed racing takes place in NSW, VIC and QLD.
We take a look at the big races and pick out our best bets on a great day of sports and racing.
RANDWICK - SUMMER CUP - 2000m - LISTED
Our top pick for the Summer Cup is LAURE ME IN for the David Pfieffer stable. The 6 year old gelding has been in solid form recently. Finished 2nd behind Greysful Glamour in his last start over the same distance however got too far back to make an impact late. The weight penalties for that race also gives us confidence.
Pick - Laure Me In - $4.60
CAULFIELD - CHRISTMAS STAKES - 1200m - LISTED
On paper this looks a pretty open race with multiple chances which is why we like the value around Phillip Stokes trained Sansom. The 4yo gelding runs best fresh and has won twice from two starts so far this prep. Has won 4 from 8 at the distance as well as 3 from 5 fresh. The $5.5 and $1.90 provides great value e/w in an open field and he should go close.
Pick - Sansom - $5.50 / $1.90
EAGLE FARM - MAGIC MILLIONS BERNBOROUGH PLATE - 1600m - LISTED
A few interesting runners in this one but for us its hard to look past the Harrovian. Winner of 12 from 14 starts including a recent outing to Eagle Farm where he won an open handicap under heavier weight. Keeps finding this prep and not afraid to run off the pace and swoop late. The race maps to give him every opportunity.
Pick - The Harrovian - $2.45
ASCOT - A.T.A STAKES - 2200m - LISTED
Over in WA we see a small field of 9 competing for the A.T.A Stakes and our top pick is the favourite Neufbosc. Clearly the talented runner in the field having competed recently at G1 level he has been extremely competitive at this level. Winning the Carbine Club WA Stakes he showed great speed to roll over the top late. Hard to see anything else competing.
Pick - Neufbosc - $2.30
