George Ryder Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Te Akau Shark @ $2.20

The brilliant Chipping Norton Stakes winner looks perfectly placed to make it a hat-trick of group one victories this campaign.

Returning a more mature animal this time in, Te Akau Shark backed up his fresh win in New Zealand to brilliantly reel them at Randwick on February 29 to importantly tick the Australian box.

Versus a field here that doesn't appear to be any stronger, this gelding is well suited in the small field however this race is run where whilst he enjoys a strong tempo, his turn of foot can overcome a slower run race.

Te Akau Shark handles any ground and as still the progressive weight-for-age galloper in this field, is expected to pounce again as the best bet in George Ryder Stakes of 2020.

George Ryder Stakes 2020 Value Bet - Best Of Days @ $26.00

Whilst he's perhaps a hard horse to catch, this Godolphin representative certainly isn't hopeless as one of the outsiders of this field.

His stats on his fresh form isn't excellent, however he arguably should've won a CF Orr last year first-up and straight to 1500m off two trials (worked well at his most recent), is more positive.

The form from his last two runs when heading over for a Western Australia tilt is reading superbly where he spotted spotted 4kg to the Railway winner Regal Power (All Star Mile winner) and was unlucky as third in the Kingston Town Classic.

For those taking exotics or even chasing some each way value in the George Ryder Stakes, Best Of Days does have top 3-4 claims at very big odds.
