Bathurst Tips May 2


Bathurst Value Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Purposeful Miss

While she'll likely be spotting the the odds-on favourite, Miss Jay Fox a start, her form from the prior Spring campaign is certainly good enough to measure up in a country 58.

Unlucky in a strong Class 1 fresh behind Toto and Dreaming For More (Both now three-time winners), she again didn't have the best of passages when trying to reel in Malkovich and Thudson, two city class sprinters.

Off a fair but quiet rial on April 19, she'll look for some cover early under Rory Hutchings and on at least an each-way/1x3 basis, Purposeful Miss should be thereabouts in a race with a long tail to it.


Bathurst Best Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Emeriz

Always wary with Maiden winners via their next outings, however, this three-year-old looks just about your default winner off the map, and with big queries around his key rivals.

From barrier three where Emeriz should comfortably take up the running, his biggest threat on class is Stone Cold who does find a much easier assignment, but you're going back to 2019 to find his last win and he hasn't exactly been banging down the door of late.

Of the others currently under double figure quotes, Jarmanagic is going well but up in grade and hasn't won in six previous attempts via this benchmark while On Angel's Wings has some ability, but all of his winning form is at a mile or further.


Bathurst Best Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Byron

Although he didn't beat much, it was a nice debut victory over 1300m at Orange and the gelding didn't lose any fans when backing that effort up with a second at Queanbeyan on April 15.

There admittedly wasn't a great deal of quality finishing behind him on that occasion, however, the form has stacked up very well through the winner, Onsettling Down who went straight to a BM70 and saluted at his next outing.

This looks yet another BM58 with next to no depth and looking the runner with clearly the most upside in the field, Byron can progress further via the last from Bathurst on Sunday.
