Kalgoorlie Best Bets & Predictions For Thursday, October 3

Racing in the west heads to the Goldfields with Kalgoorlie set to stage an eight race card.

The track is currently rated at a Good 4 with the rail out 4, so monitor for any on-pace bias early as it's a circuit that can favor leaders.

Kalgoorlie Best Bet

Race 7 No. 3 Tellem We're Comin

A typically tough and honest Blackfriars galloper is this five-year-old from the Grant & Alana Wiiliams stable who is well placed in this Listed Hannans Handicap over 1400m.

Was a well supported favorite when resuming at Belmont on September 14 where he snagged to the rear from a wide alley before doing his best work late and had to settle for fourth.

"The Wizard" William Pike sticks and with the blinkers going on, he'll have to aim to be at least a few pairs closer on settling as Kalgoorlie can be a hard track to make ground on.

He has a strong second up profile and with a solid tempo up front, can chime in at the business end of proceedings.

Kalgoorlie Best Bet: Tellem We're Comin - $2.70 via Ladbrokes

Kalgoorlie Next Best Bet

Race 2 No. 1 Chapasco

Lightly raced and progressive stayer by High Chaparral who gets out to his right trip now third-up from a spell following two efforts over a mile to begin this campaign.

Won on ability first-up at Northam on August 29 before somewhat of a flatter effort at Belmont, however the adverse conditions were rolling in during that event where it was more favorable to be swooping towards the middle of the straight.

There was an opinion of him last preparation as he did go on a Derby trail in the west which included a few fair efforts at listed level in the lead-up races.

He's no stranger to carrying weight and class should see him home here against limited opposition.

Unfortunately some very thin odds come up for Chapasco, still confident he'll be too good but is awfully short.

Perhaps aim for something small and roll it into Tellem We're Comin in the main race. That multi is around $3.90 - $4.00.
