Echuca Best Bet: Pepper’s Ghost
The Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra-trained Pepper’s Ghost comes to Echuca following a close second at Sandown on July 14 hen chasing home the in-form Worsfold and we think if he brings that form here on Monday, he should be too good for this lot. Despite drawing out wide in barrier 13, we anticipate the Al Maher gelding ill look to settle in the first four upon settling, much the same as he did at Sandown. If he is afforded a bit of early luck and can gain cover in the running, he has the strongest form in the race and should be too good for this BM58 field.
Next Best Bet: Danejararose
Matt Cumani sends his Dane Shadow mare Danejararose to Echuca following a second placed finish at Casterton when first up on July 19. She seemingly got too far out of her ground on that day, considering it was a day to be favourable up on speed and to go down by three quarters of a length suggested she was one worth following. Having drawn out wide in barrier 4, we expect John Allen to go forward on the four-year-old and look to settle her in the one-one position. As long as she does not get trapped three-wide early on she be simply too good for this field and bring up a deserved maiden win.
Best Value: Book Of Marvels
Book Of Marvels from the John and Chris Ledger yard comes to Echuca on the back of a smart maiden victory at Wodonga on July 11 and looks well placed to make it consecutive victories here at Echuca. That win came on a Heavy 8, so we know he can handle the ground and considering he was going around against the likes of Senor Toba in his debut campaign, suggesting connections have a decent opinion on the son of Helmet and with odds of $12 available we think it presents pretty good value.
