THE GENERAL’S 5 BEST BETS
SATURDAY, 24 NOVEMBER 2018
BEST BET OF THE DAY: SATURDAY NOVEMBER 2018
R7 – 15 Arcadia Queen
Super last start defeating Lady Cosmology in the Champion Fillies and I see no reason why she can’t do it again. Drawn gate 3 to get the gun run and whilst she will get back I think there is a heap of speed in the race and she will mow them down in the straight. Pike on $2.60 – Best bet of the day for me.
R7 – 16 Rapture Miss (EW)
$5.00 & $2.00
Showed enough last start over 1800m on the Kensington track last start. She finished runner-up to Miss Shanti and that galloper has form around Sky Boy which looks good for a race like this..McEvoy is on board with 53.5kgs here and she should be able to settle around midfield from barrier 8 and build into the race nicely. $5 is a good price at present and I’d be taking that 2 by 3 now as I think she will start a bit shorter than that come race time.
R8 – 2 Niccanova
Had a little let up after a great win last start where he saluted by 2 and a quarter lengths on a wet track defeating Fiery Heights. Should get a nice run from gate 5 for Jimmy Orman, goes super this track and distance likes the sting out of the track. Certainly not a vintage rendition of the recognition stakes and $3.90 will do me!
R3-9 In Love With Paris
Been super consistent of late but is up in grade. Drawn a lovely gate for Craig Williams and the step up the 1400m should suit. He will sit just off the pace in what I think will be a slowly run race and get his shot upon straightening to skip away. Think he is a good bet around the $3.60 mark.
R8 – 4 Gatting (E/W LONGSHOT)
$15.00 & $4.20
Can’t get his last start win out of my head in the Lee Steele Stakes where he dropped on them late in somewhat arrogant fashion for the win. He has drawn gate 1 which does concern me a bit and hope he doesn’t get too far back on the rail. Bar Plates are on again which I don’t like, but a price of $15 + I can’t not be on him each way.
