Murray Bridge Best Bet: Bleriot
When two-year-olds take on their older rivals, they tend to prove hard to get past, and we are hoping that is the case for the Will Clarken-trained Bleriot in the final race at Murray Bridge. The Divine Prophet filly returns to the same track and distance where she smashed her rivals – albeit at her age level – by seven lengths back on June 19. From barrier two she is set to gain every favour in the run under Todd Pannell, and as she showed in her last-start win, she can see out a strong 1200m. Bleriot should get every favour in the run as she brings up consecutive victories.
Next Best at Murray Bridge: Greetings Ned
The Dennis O’Leary-trained Greetings Ned is perfectly placed to bring up back-to-back victories after an impressive win at Morphettville on June 12. The six-year-old gelding had just one of his 11 rivals behind him when entering the home straight but was utterly breathtaking when storming down the centre of the track to claim victory by close to two lengths in what was ultimately a soft win. Apprentice Jacob Opperman sticks on board, and his 2kg claim gets them in with 59.5kg. Expect Opperman to have Greetings Ned settled out the back of the field, giving him the chance to build through the gears on the long straight and swamp his rivals late in the second leg of the quaddie.
Murray Bridge Value Bet: Lobster noodles
Fresh off a win on the Pakenham synthetic on June 22, the Leon & Troy Corstens-trained Lobster Noddles heads to Murray bridge in a bid to bring up consecutive wins for the first time in her career. The four-year-old Canford Cliffs mare tends to do her best racing close to the speed, so from barrier 11 under Lachlan King she will look to take up the running and use her rider’s 1.5kg claim to her advantage. With a win to her name on rain-affected going, we know she can handle the ground. The double-figure quote is overs.
