Northam Best Bets & Predictions For Thursday, November 17

Northam hosts Thursday racing from the west this week with a seven race program.

The rail is out 6m and fine conditions are expected on what is a Good 4 surface.

Northam Best Bet

Race 3 No. 3 Power And Passion

By War Chant and out of the group placed mare Passion Cantata is this gelding arriving second-up following a slashing fresh run as runner-up at Belmont on September 25.

He was put in a pocket a key stage in the straight there and had to take time to balance up again and go much later than he'd of liked.

Minus victories, the form has been consistent out of that race and despite the long odds that day for him, he's clearly underrated as he won on debut at a big quote before failing on a heavy track.

The extra 300m looks ideal and his opposition aren't exactly banging the door down.

Race 1 No. 5 More Fizz

This is a well bred three-year-old filly being by Blackfriars and out of a half sister to the Western Australian champion Marasco that got home with good intent on debut.

In that effort here on October 6 she settled off the speed before tracking up fairly and doing her best work late where she was beaten under a length into third.

I'm suspect on the depth of that maiden but the first three home had some space on the rest and up to a mile, she's open to further improvement.

William Pike takes the ride and he can round them up late in the small field.

What time is the first race at Northam?

Race 1 begins at 1.17pm local time.

When is the Northam Cup?

The $125,000 Listed Northam Cup will be run on Sunday, October 27.

Recent Melbourne winner Pushin' Shapes won this race in 2018.

Power and Passion put the writing on the wall first-up and is well placed in the third.

More Fizz should improve enough at a mile to take out the opener.
