Gunnedah Best Bets & Predictions For Thursday, October 10

Country NSW racing heads to the northeast of the state with Gunnedah to host a seven race card.

The rail is in the true, track is rated at a Good 3 and fine conditions are expected.

Gunnedah Best Bet

Race 4 No. 1 Derby Star

The last start Moree romp was a peak he may not be able to replicate but this four-year-old gelding simply looks to pick himself staying in the same grade to attempt win number three.

Note that Aaron Bullock jumps off but that's explained given he rides for the Kris Lees stable who saddle up the second favorite in Heredero who whilst is honest, doesn't win out of turn.

Master Cramsie is the only other runner in single figures and he will benefit from a massive weight swing on Derby Star from that last clash but does have seven lengths to make up.

Draws barrier one for Greg Ryan who can give him the run of the race and he's well placed to win again.

Gunnedah Next Best Bet

Race 2 No. 6 Autumn Rain

Resuming mare by Camelot and for the powerful Kris Lees/Aaron Bullock combination who couldn't quite break the maiden in her first campaign but has trialed up well for her return.

She finished off well in her last hit-out leading in when making good ground for third in a Gosford heat on September 30 behind a winner that has good claims in a much stronger event at Wyong.

This mare is bred to get over ground which she should in time but the 1300m here is a good starting point and they've drawn a nice low gate in two.

No doubting she's short but there's just a severe lack of depth to this field and she may just win it by default if nothing else.

Rather low card hence a lack of value for standouts, but both Derby Star and Autumn Rain look clearly the ones to beat in their respective races.
