WE are just a week out from the heats of the Golden Easter Egg and what a series it promises to be.

And while none of the big guns are stepping out this weekend there’s some fantastic races slated for decision leading into the commencement of the lucrative carnival next week.

We’ve come up with three best bets for the ten race card while another couple stand out at a bit of value.


Race 2 Number 3 – SARITA

Really does look her race at around $2.2. Has been out of the winners list recently but if she’s to spark back into form it will be in this. From an in-form kennel and boasts three wins from six appearances in town and to be fair in better company than this. Back to grade five company … really does tick all the boxes.

Race 5 Number 7 – COAST MODEL

Looms as an engrossing battle here between Coast Model and On The Rocks which dominate betting. Coast Model ran sizzling sectionals to score last start in 29.62 and keen to go her way just as much for the fact I’m not sure where On The Rocks is at form wise.

Race 9 Number 8 – CAPE FERNANDO

Thought his fourth placed finish last Saturday night was full of merit. And from the pink box I give him a great chance of finding the top and giving backers a fantastic sight.

Ran sizzling times to score at Bulli and Dapto before that last start fourth and if he can cross Super Estrella heading into the first turn corner should prove mighty hard to beat.

Best Value

Race 6 Number 4 RITZA COEN

Look, it’s a strong race, granted he hasn’t won for a while and he’s horribly boxed, yet despite all that, $16 is big ‘overs’ for mine.

It’s a race with a host of chances and if there’s a mix up early this is the kind of race Ritza Coen may find himself handy down the back and in the money late.

It’s funny when a run of outs occur – they generally find a way back into the winners circle when you least expect it.  

Race 8 Number 8 SPRITELY EBONY

The alarming stat is just the one city win from 12 starts. But if you take a line through her best provincial form and throw in box eight which she can handle, $14 in early betting for mine is generous.

Baroque Knight is sitting up in the red as favourite but the $1.40 in some quarters is massive unders. Can see our tip getting a nice cart across from Rose Of Lachlan and running a race at each way odds.
