Muswellbrook Race 6
2 Island Grange ($5)
Jeremy Sylvester mare and the stable always needs to be respected. Nice SP profile when bet from $19 to $14 two starts back and beaten only 1.7L at Narromine. Followed up with an excellent 1.2L third at Armidale when sitting midfield and rocketing home.
Orange Race 4
2 Smuggler’s Bay
Quality 4yo with the Ron Weston and John Nisbet stable. John’s daughter Kayla has the ride as she has throughout his three-start career to date. It has proven an excellent combination, netting two wins and a second. Wins have come at Wagga and Albury so clearly has ability.
