Country Discovery Handicap 2022 Tips


Country Discovery Handicap 2022 Best Bet - Brooklyn Hustle

Have I been sucked in again? Probably, but she runs with a flashing light above her head every start and this race is no harder than what she has been competitive in of late.

Closing off well in The Galaxy last start, brooklyn Hustle backed up a great first-up performance behind Malkovich who is low-flying.

She gets to Sale which we know has a straight long enough for any horse to win, and the good ground that we should be getting suits, so at the price she is the best each-way bet in the race.

Country Discovery Handicap 2022 Next Best Bet - Showmanship

If there is a horse who could be a proper Group One star in the race, this is the one, coming from Danny O'Brien's stable and owned by Bob Peters.

He was last seen in 2020 at Moonee Valley when taking out the Chandler Macleod Stakes, making him a hot favourite for the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes, taking his record to seven wins from eight starts.

Showmanship has won a jumpout over Glassey Miss in great fashion and if at about 90% fitness, his ability is going to take him a long way to winning this race - but the market is going to tell the story.

Country Discovery Handicap2022 Value Bet - Savatoxl

His first-up record is so strong with five wins from six starts, but more than 170 days between runs is the worry given many of his rivals have race fitness and are quality horses.

Barrier 15 is the other knock, given Savatoxl naturally rolls forward, how much speed is he going to find underneath him in a quality field?

The big tick is that he is a Group One winner and a proven performer at this level, so is value given he is arguably the best proven horse in the event.
