Goulburn Best Bets & Value Tips For Tuesday, October 8

Goulburn Best Bet

Race 1 No. 4 Vee Eight

Locally trained six-year-old that was very brave first-up here on September 27 where he was runner-up after being three-wide the trip throughout.

In the end, he just provided a perfect tow into the race for the favorite here in Galahad's Quest who he meets again, however he has the benefit of a run under his belt and meets that galloper 2kg better off at the weights from that last clash.

The tactics in these small fields can make it tough but they have a few more options this time around from barrier three and with the resuming Our Fun probably being most progressive of these, the trials leading in haven't been flash.

Is a multiple winner here on her home track and whilst limited, can take out take out this opener.

Goulburn Best Each Way

Race 8 No. 9 Ashton Blair

Three-year-old colt by Wanjina and prepared by the Matthew Smith yard that steps to the mile for start number three.

He was beaten for speed on debut at Kembla Grange on August 17 when the sprint went on and looked set for a similar scenario at Newcastle when coming off the bridle early, but actually picked up fairly well late once balancing up.

That gave every indication that he was looking for a mile now and in a Warwick Farm trial since, he looked to have come on a little further when getting home for second and that time was good compared to the other maiden heat over that trip.

Chad Lever takes the ride and he has the benefit of barrier two in what isn't a strong maiden.
