BIG 12 race card at The Meadows on Saturday afternoon where we are pretty keen on a few key chances throughout the meeting.

THE MEADOWS FIELD AND FORM

Best Bets

Race 3 Number 1 REBEL RIOT

Draws the red for just the second time in his career and an inside trap for the first time in ages. Been in sparkling form against better company recently and boasts fantastic form at The Meadows. Granted he’s $1.70 but he looks the winner every which way you look for Anthony Azzopardi. 

Race 5 Number 5 WHISTLING BULLET

Comes to The Meadows for the first time after a slightly disappointing run at Sandown last start. Gets a very winnable race for her first look at The Meadows and the middle draw isn’t a major concern either the way she races. Expecting her to give backers a great sight at around the $4.50 mark.

Race 7 Number 2 ZERO COOL

Suited racing against her own sex and only needs to get somewhere near her flying PB at the track of 29.78 to be too slick. She’s not the most reliable and can mix her form but talent isn’t a concern and the draw suits as well. If she gets clear air in the middle stages expect her to be right in the finish.

Best Value

Race 8 Number 7 FERNANDO FRANK

Probably should have won his past two starts when narrowly beaten so given that I’m expecting him to run a forward race at each-way odds here. In good hands and is rarely out of the money at The Meadows and while wide draws from this bend start are tricky; he’s the kind of dog it can actually suit. Won eight races – one from each box.
