Indian Pacific is TABtouch blog columnist Scott Embry's best bet on TABtouch Perth Cup Day

Punting Form race reports: Saturday 4 January

Indian Pacific leaps off the page as the three-year-old galloper to beat in the Amelia Park Handicap at Ascot Racecourse on TABtouch Perth Cup Day and TABtouch blog columnist Scott Embry rates him as the meeting's best bet.

A $110,000 yearling purchase, Indian Pacific made a thoroughly impressive competitive debut when, off the back of two trial wins, he posted a Punting Form rating of -4.3 lengths in taking out an Ascot Racecourse sprint over 1,000 metres. Indian Pacific sticks at 1,000m for his second start and his Punting Form personal best is at least 2.7l superior to those of his Amelia Park Handicap rivals. Guesteen is unbeaten as well and We've Got Dreams is seeking her fourth straight victory but none of their Punting Form numbers are close to Indian Pacific's top figure.
