THE GENERAL’S 5 BEST BETS
08 DECEMBER 2018
$2.90 (Best Bet)
3rd up today.
Got too far back first up at Rosehill in a race won by Handle The Truth, yet still ran on strong from the rear.
Second up was well placed at Goulburn on cup day. Carried a big weight but was still far too good.
McEvoy on today = Tick ✔️
Up to 1400m = big tick ✔️✔️✔️
Gate 3 = big tick ✔️✔️✔️
$12.00 & $4.00
Good run last start beaten 2.75 lengths by the inform Isuarian.
Been up for a while but has been contesting a lot tougher races than this and is dropping back in grade here.
McEvoy on and happy to have each way.
Notably she has won late in her prep in the past.
Gets his chance in this race.
Overraced last start but was right in it until the very final few bounds.
Looks to get a softish track and will be in it for a long long way with D Browne onboard controlling the tempo.
Certainly one of ‘mine’.
So good last start winning the Ballarat Cup over 2200m and stiff the start before in the Eclipse Stakes.
John Allen riding like a demon and if you back Weir I think you will be drinking beer after this race.
Small query at the trip but the horse is flying and should get a strong speed to suit and finish all over the top of them.
~Huge weight pull on opposition.
~Will eat the 1800m.
