Hot Chocolate returns as one of the best prospects to break the maiden at Rockhampton. The horse had back-to-back second placings prior being turned out. Only two other horses in the eight horse field have raced prior, and one has placed. We’re backing Hot Chocolate in.
Like ‘Em Sassy is chasing a hat-trick and is well placed to achieve it. The horse beat a bunch of the runners that are taking part in this race recently, and jumps in weight as a consequence. Doesn’t matter to us though, Like ‘Em Sassy will walk home once again.
We tipped Mishnah last-time out at Rocky and it saluted so why would we jump off now? The horse is chasing a third-straight success and is fresh off a dominant Class 4 victory. The gelding jumps 4.5kg but is in such great form we cannot overlook it.
Dual Personality has placed third in four-straight races and looms as an excellent winning chance. The barrier ten draw is a concern, but the hot form counts for a lot in a field where nothing else stands out.
