Gigante (white silks) runs second to Achernar Star at Ascot.
Expected weather: Mostly Sunny and 31 degrees
Expected track rating: Good 4
Rail position: 9m position
Race 1: 12.55pm – Vale Peter Appleyard Plate (1,200m) - Bet with TABtouch
1 ARRUM BOY (TABtouch opening price: $16)
Only horse to break 35 seconds for the last 600m in The Belgravia Stakes.
Along with Truly Belong, got back and ran on super against the pattern of the day.
Truly Belong is $2.65 the win here. Arrum Boy is $5.75 the place. A must consider.
REPLAY - ARRUM BOY (7th) - 28 October 2017 - Race 6 - 1200m - Ascot
Race 5: 3.45 – Conquer Cystic Fibrosis – Fairetha Stakes (1,400m) - Bet with TABtouch
9 VITAL DANCER (TABtouch opening price: $7.50)
Tough race, but this bloke is a tough horse.
Led the whole way at Bunbury and held off Cruachan, who’s been impressive in two runs since.
Few resuming here and the favourite is mighty short for a horse coming out a race where the form hasn’t stacked up. Will give a sight at the very least Vital Dancer.
REPLAY - VITAL DANCER (1st) - 14 October 2017 - Race 5 - 1200m - Bunbury
Race 8: 5.25pm – Craig Turnbull Six-O Birthday Handicap (1,200m) - Bet with TABtouch
1 GIGANTE (TABtouch opening price: $18)
In the UTR (Under The Radar) file for the second start in a row.
Was massive last start in only just falling short to Achernar Star. Same grade, same jockey/weight, same wide gate here.
Will put self on speed and have a fair dinkum crack again.
REPLAY - GIGANTE (2nd) - 28 October 2017 - Race 5 - 1200m - Ascot
