Tom Gilmore has unearthed some strong bets from Thursday's race meetings.
Warrnambool R3 No.3 - FABULONH
Thought he was good first-up when forced to work at Colac, still stuck on ok and managed to find the line when he was entitled to weaken. Draws well for this, the inside should see him punch up and either lead or track them through. The extra 200m will suit and I reckon the winner of his most recent outing will make a horse. This race lacks depth.
Fabulonh - 1pt @ 3.6
Warrnambool R7 No.4 - SOVNGARDE
I think this fella has been improving as he gradually steps up in trip, thought he was quite good when two lengths off the winner over a mile at Pakenham. Drew awkwardly that day and was forced to do a bit of work early, draws for the box seat run and gets in well relative weights after the claim from Dylan Dunn. Like him getting to 1700m and would even be keen to follow him to 2000m in the right race.
Sovngarde - 1pt @ 3.0
Pakenham R2 No.12 - TIME TO SAIL (each-way)
Thought she was quite good after bombing the start at Mornington over 1500m in what was a better race than this, had to duck/weave her way through the field and ended up finding inferior ground before hitting the line ok. Reckon the 2000m will suit her down to the ground and bigger track will give her some room to wind up. Can run a cheeky race at a big price.
Time To Sail - 0.5pt e/w @ 12.0
Pakenham R3 No.15 - ZASORCERESS
Good filly who found the line very well at Sandown over the 1300m, she was fizzy pre-race, jumped awkwardly and produced some big splits late to come over the top of them. Second-up/strips fitter and gets to the mile which will suit. Tempo looks to be ok on paper which will assist her in running over the top of them late.
Zasorceress - 1pt @ 2.8
Ipswich R4 No.1 - EXTRASAY
Was a month between runs when winning well here two weeks ago over the six furlongs, sat a pair or two off them and was strong late to win running away. Suggest the 1350m wont pose too much of an issue and this is no vintage race. Small field but the pace looks like it'll be genuine enough so she'll box seat and again be too strong for them late.
