Princess Anacheeva has placed in five of its last six races and looks well placed to go again. The horse has won at the Mornington track prior and the recent form is great so we’re happy to place a bet on the nose here.
Race 1 tip: Princess Anacheeva to win ($5 at Sportsbet)
A luckier run for Lady De Bathe would have seen the horse break the maiden grade last time out, but we all know racing doesn’t work like that. Still, the horse showed us that a win is just around the corner and we think this may be the ideal race to show that.
Steel Of Madrid looks the best performed horse in this maiden field and we believe it will finally breakthrough at the ninth time of asking. Only twice in its career to date has the four-year-old missed a placing which stands it head and shoulders above most of the runners here.
Amastryker has not missed a placing this preparation and has recorded second placings in three consecutive races. The blinkers get applied on Saturday which should sharpen up its performance and we think it will finally shake the maiden company at the seventh attempt.
