Sale Best Bet: Magic Hammer
The Phillip Stokes-trained Magic Hammer comes to Sale following a close up second at Bendigo on August 8 in a race that has seen the third-place horse Vilanculos come out and win at Bendigo on Friday. Having been left vulnerable a long way out from, the three-year-old Geordieland gelding was headed with 100m to go, but still fought strongly through the line to suggest he he will be hard to beat over the 2246m. The drop back from 2400m last time out looks ideal and from barrier three under Ben Allen, we anticipate he will settle on the heels of the leaders and with even luck in the home straight he should be too strong for his opponents late on and looks a clear best bet on the Sale card.
Next Best for Sale: Maybe The Best
In the penultimate race on the Sale card, we are siding with the Anthony and Sam Freedman-trained Maybe The Best as she resumes from a short 11-week spell. Having trialled in impressive fashion at Cranbourne in the lead up to this run, she looks like she will be hard to beat as she looks to build on the impressive start to her career. In her initial campaign, she showed the want to go forward from the barriers and from barrier six under Damian Lane, she looks like she will do just that and look to settle in the one-one position. If she is afforded that early luck in the barrier, she looks like she will get the sit on the leaders who are sure to set a genuine pace over the 1013m and we expect the I Am Invincible mare to finish over the top of them.
Sale Value Bet: Slipintothis
Patrick Payne sends his five-year-old gelding Slipintothis to Sale following a seven-week freshen up after being well beaten in a tougher race at Sandown on June 30. The son of Proisir returns to the track that saw him demolish his rivals by close to four lengths on June 9 having settled just off the leaders’ heels. From barrier 10, we anticipate the in-form Michael Dee to look to go forward and settle him in the one-one position and despite the dramatic drop in distance (2400m to 1746m) we expect he will be too good for his rivals on the back of a well-rated steer from Dee.
