Mackay Newmarket Tip: Last Chance
Last Chance could not have been more impressive when winning the Rockhampton Newmarket just seven days ago. The Olivia Cairns-trained gelding did draw barrier 13 at Rockhampton, so barrier 14 is not too much of a concern if Ash Butler can produce a similar steer. The son of Tycoon Ruler does rise 2kg to the 60kg, which will be a big effort to win again, but he won with authority in a tougher race at Rocky last start. The five-year-old has won six from 18 at this track and finished second on another 10 occasions, so he will love being at Mackay. The $4.40 is not as appealing as the $18 last week, but he looks the best horse in this race and can win again.
Best Bet at Mackay: Monsieur Macron
Mick Bannon’s Monsieur Macron lines up in an Open Handicap over 1800m after winning in tough fashion at Townsville on June 29th. The son of Swiss Ace held off the challenge from Tutelage, who came out and won at Cairns on Tuesday to frank the form. Jumping from barrier six, Nathan Day should get the six-year-old gelding in a lovely spot on the speed in a race that doesn’t possess a great deal of pace. Monsieur Macron will be trying to sneak into a Mackay Cup or Townsville Cup field in the coming weeks, so he will be hoping to prove something in this.
Mackay Value Bet: Tabatha Miss
John Manzelmann and Bobby El-Issa combine in the fifth race of the day with the consistent Tabatha Miss. The daughter of Magic Albert has finished in the top two on 11 occasions from her 20 career starts and now returns to her original stable after a short stint in South-East Queensland. Drawn ideally in barrier five, the four-year-old mare will get a good run behind a hot speed, and with only 58kg on her back compared to her main rivals, she gets in with every chance. Moreno and Mason’s Chance are certainly a class or two above, but carrying 64.5kg and 63kg respectively, they look out-weighted.
