A couple of races, initially uninteresting but the available prices look enticing:

Perth 2-40
Bermuda Pointe 4 10/3
Tom’s Toybox 5 7
Coach Lane 8 9
Ormello 9 8
Sharp Reply 9 4
Gentle John 12 10
Cool Operator 14 7

Result:
1 Cantgeton 20/1
2 Ormello 7/1
3 Coach Lane 8/1

Perth 4-40
South O’The Border 5/2 3
Qulinton 4 6
Wikaala 9/2 5/2
Terenzium 5 14
Los Nadis 10 16 BET 16 early
Rouge Et Blanc 11 6

Result:
1 South O’The Border 2/1 Jt Fav
2 Wikaala 2/1 Jt Fav
3 Echo Point 12/1
4 Los Nadis 16/1

Needless to say, V Williams will be targeting both these, having won them both last year. South O’The Border has a good chance. There are two longer-priced runners though, which are more obvious value – Terenzium (5, 14) and Los Nadis (10, 16) – I might play one or both of these.

In the earlier race, only Tom’s Toybox (5, 7) is early value and it might be better to wait for the on-course market.

Pre-race: I was tempted by Terenzium but further research gives the impression he has only won easier races. I backed Los Nadis eventually, his recent races being more difficult and the distance change is worth trusting. That said, P Monteith is not too hot at the moment (no wins in 52 days) whilst Mickey Hammond is 3 wins from 22 runs in the last 2 weeks.
