Tom Gilmore has four bets on Sunday, including a strong fancy in the opener at Geelong.
Geelong R1 No.5 - SIR SAGAMORE
Has what has now proven to be some serious form in his debut campaign, finishing on the heels of Sailing By (Group-class filly) and Golden Spin (Saturday winner in town) which reads well for this. Recent jumpout too was good so suggest he's in top order, fresh/1200m no issue and can win.
Sir Sagamore - 1pt @ 2.7
Geelong R3 No.4 - EXACTING
Nice horse this and was undone by serious amounts of pressure applied at Echuca over the 1400m two weeks ago, the winner of that race has since come out and won well in a good race at Flemington (enormous!). Should again jump well and be handy enough to them, third-up/sticking at the trip is a recipe I like!
Exacting - 1pt @ 2.4
Geelong R9 No.9 - KINGS COMMAND
Won very impressively here at Geelong two weeks ago over the 1300m in what I think will prove to be a pretty hot race, he settled well back in the field and really stormed home over the top of them with good late splits (2nd & 3rd were on-pacers so against the bias of the race!). Rises 2kgs and gets the inside gate but fancy that shouldnt be much of an issue.
Kings Command - 1pt @ 5.0
Townsville R7 No.2 - GREEN ANCHOR
At the ratings/weights how does he get beaten? Surely doesnt! Performs well fresh and strikes a track he wins at for fun, along with drawing the softest of barriers in gate 3. The stars align for this fellas return to the racetrack, beaten home better ones than this in recent times!
Green Anchor - 1pt @ 4.5
