|When||Wednesday, January 13, 2021|
|First Race||11:56am AEST|
Rockhampton hosts eight races on Wednesday and we are going into the card with full confidence. After a few light showers over the weekend, the track is in the Soft 5 category, while the rail will be in the true for the entire course. Race 1 is set to jump at 11:56am.
Best Bet – Race 4 #2 I Did It Again
Trinity Bannon will train and ride her talented gelding I Did It Again in the 1300m Open Handicap. He’s now looking for five straight wins after resuming where he left off at the end of last campaign. One start at Rockhampton for a victory will have give connections confidence, given some runners get lost on the big track for the first time. He has to carry 4.5kg less than the reigning Rockhampton Cup winner, which is a huge benefit given Bannon is likely to track the top weight everywhere he goes. The picket fence should extend here.
Next Best – Race 2 #2 Navarre
Navarre promised to be a smart one in the early days of his career, but he’s still looking for a win at start 18. The son of Sebring has raced at Group 1 level in the 2019 Victoria Derby, and also boasts form around Splendoronthegrass and The Astrologist which is very handy for this. Forget about that form, and go back to just his last start when second at this track. He was huge that day, coming from out of the pack to hit the line hard, suggesting that the rise to a mile will be ideal. Despite being drawn gate 9 of 10, he should find a midfield spot and be finishing off the better here to breakthrough.
Best Value – Race 3 #14 Lady Lowburn
Jamie McConachy and the inform Bobby El-Issa combine in the third race with Lady Lowburn who is on the seven day back up. After giving punters around the nation a massive scare last Wednesday when she nearly knocked off $1.45 favourite (with top AU bookies), Back When, the Falvelon filly looks ready to win here. She stays at 1200m and shouldn’t be too far away in the run from barrier 6, which will give her every chance. She’s rock-hard fit now and should be going well enough to win this.
