Punting Form's data analysts rated Broker's runner-up performance behind Prize Catch as the best of his career
Broker failed to make it four wins on the spin on his most recent appearance but Punting Form's data analysts rated his runner-up performance behind Prize Catch as being the best of his career and good enough to warrant Heineken 3 Handicap favouritism over TABtouch's jolly for Saturday's opening race, Missile Launch.
In what was the first high-rating performance of Broker's 11-start career, the Jason Miller-trained four-year-old gelding lost out to Prize Catch by a nose in what, according to the Punting Form, was the most meritorious contest on the Schweppes WATC Derby Day program. Broker's two-year Punting Form personal best of 8.3 lengths faster than benchmark is the same as that of Grey Enigma but the former achieved his mark over 1,600 metres whereas the latter recorded his effort over 1,400m. Missile Launch's two-year Punting Form personal best is 3.5 lengths inferior to that of Broker and, while the Vaughn Sigley-prepared four-year-old gelding is going places fast, based on raw, exposed data there is a value case for betting against him in the second clash between the gallopers.
