Looking at the card, Caspar Fownes has a runner in every race with Zac Purton aboard most of them. The Stats People will point out at the very high strike rate when “The King Of The Valley” and the Champion Jockey team up.

We must have been outta town when Batman and the Zac Attack struck as following this double act has seldom worked for us.

Tonight? We like them in the last on Green Card. What’s surprising is seeing Relentless Me as the overnight favourite in the race. We expected it to be 8s. But what do we know? Not much.

We have no speed maps like Deano. No idea of market movers and hair dryers like Quinny does.

We have no bananas, but big enough gonads to  just go for the ride armed with hunches and knowing that Joao Moreira doesn’t really do that well when riding the city track. At least he didn’t until the Comeback Of The Samurai a few months ago as stable jockey for John Size.

So make whatever you want out of our choices below…

The first leg of the Six Up and always a trappy affair where the favourite often gets rolled. It’s like a curse! It’s spooky!

Glory Star (6)
Clear Choice (8)
Champion Supreme (3)
(Catch his last run over a much shorter distance than he tackles today?)
Impeccable Fellow

But honestly….


Okay, just some hunches and hunchback of Notre Dame…There’s a pretty big Triple Trio jackpot so why not try to win it? R4 is the first leg. Could also be the last leg. Could even break a leg at the Beer Garden.
