Bunbury Tips March 6


Bunbury Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Charleton Eddie

With four wins, four placings and a worst result in nine career starts being a fourth-place finish first-up last campaign, they don't get much more honest than this gelding from the Sean & Jake Casey stable who didn't have a whole lot of favours fresh in a narrow defeat.

Carrying the topweight of 59.5kg and spotting decent weight to every rival in that February 20 contest (including 5.5kg to the winner), the son of Shooting To Win took up his customary position in the lead but was given no peace by Fish Hook, who was the first horse beaten, which adds plenty of merit to the performance.

Via his second and third-up attempts last preparation, Charleton Eddie ran into the smart Chantorque and at the right time year for a three-year-old to be taking on older opposition, he'll take some running down on a Bunbury circuit which can favour on-pace runners over the sprint trips.


Bunbury Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 13 Pletto

Up in grade but plummeting in the weights is this mare who rattled home first-up in the Pearl Classic at Pinjarra and despite being well placed to win following that, she didn't get a whole lot of luck in that February 20 event when stepping to the 1500m at Ascot.

A galloper that does need that bit of momentum to build into her races, it just never panned out last start where she wasn't out until it was all over and was only really hitting her top gear at 100m, but ultimately, Pletto was just left with too much to do from an impossible position.

Fitter and dropping to 1400m looks a really nice set-up with just the 54.5kg while from barrier five, we want to see jockey Jade McNaught at least attempt to place her in the first half of the field early and with cover from that low draw, she can sprint hard with that low weight.


Bunbury Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Samizdat

The first of two listed races on the feature WA card this Saturday is the Bunbury Stakes, which sees a big and competitive field assembled for the 1400m feature where we're getting each-way odds for the class galloper in the event.

This lighty raced five-year-old has had his fair share of setbacks, but has finally been able to build into a campaign this year where the highlight was a third-up win over Flirtini in the Listed Scenic Blast before rattling home in the Pinjarra Classic on February 20, where at 33.83, he comfortably ran the fastest last 600m of that race.

While Samizdat is drawn out, they were likely heading back anyway and in his last 1400m effort on soft ground, he gave Regal Power (won the Group One Railway at his next start) and Perfect Jewel (subsequent four-time Group winner) windburn, so is certainly capable of putting a line-up like this away if within striking range.

Charleton Eddie was brave first-up and with a softer run in front, he'll take catching in Race 5 from Bunbury this Saturday.

Pletto had excuses second-up and with a little more luck in transit, she gets another chance in Race 7.

Samizdat finds his favored soft ground in the Bunbury Stakes (Race 8) and is good each-way odds.
