Race 1 #6 APACHE RED $6 at PlayUp – In what looks a very poor quality maiden to start the day at Tamworth, 3YO Gelding APACHE RED looks a winning chance coming here 3rd-up today off the back of 2 gallant 2nd’s at his previous 2 runs this prep and steps up to the 7 furlongs, which should suit him.
In all four of his career starts to date, he has found the line well and with Rachael Murray retaining the ride, I think he’s not without a chance at a handy price.
My Numbers 6-4-8-1
Race 2 #1 BABY WONG $2 at PlayUp – 2YO Colt BABY WONG resumes following a midfield performance in the Magic Millions 2YO back in January, finishing 5.6L 8th off SHAQUERO.
Outside of that, he’s been placed at both Listed & G3 level beaten only half a length and dropping back to clearly his easiest grade of race, he should be too good for these under SW conditions.
I expect he’ll sit in behind the filly SWEET RUBY and should be too good for her when he’s asked to step up a gear.
My Numbers 1-9-4-2

Race 7 #5 PETRONIUS $6 at PlayUp – $1,000,000 Yearling PETRONIUS hasn’t lived up to his price tag at the top level, but he’s been a very consistent horse in the city between the BM70-78 grade, running in the money at 11 of his 14 career starts to date.
Hasn’t raced for a month, but a nice freshen-up trial should have him cherry ripe for today’s assignment. He’s well weighted and from the good draw, I expect he’ll roll forward and be given every chance. Smart early money gives us more confidence he’ll be hard to beat.
My Numbers 5-8-2-3
