CENTRAL COAST GRANITE F&M MAIDEN PLATE Tips (Race 2)
Gosford Best Bet - Race 2 No. 9 Misty Dreams
Tommy Berry is striking at 24% for this season at Gosford and he stays aboard this filly from her June 30 debut at Warwick Farm, where she worked home well for third on that occasion, albeit was well held by a very impressive Sky Command.
With that winner going straight to a Saturday two-year-old Handicap and bolting in again last Saturday, that form has stacked up nicely, especially considering Misty Dreams is coming back from Metro to Provincial level on Thursday.
The daughter of Sebring will be suited by the extra 100m of this event, while given she was still a little green in the previous trials and that recent run, this filly has plenty of natural improvement to come.

Gosford Value Bet - Race 5 No. 8 Joe's Joy
These winter staying affairs at the lower benchmarks admittedly can throw up any result, however, each-way odds are available for this mare who is tracking into this event as well as any of her rivals.
An honest campaigner for the Richard Litt stable, Joe's Joy brought up her last victory on January 27 when holding off Savvy Valentino, a galloper that finished his autumn with a winning hat-trick, including a Benchmark 78 in town.
Freshened right up following a third to that same runner in February, she's been building well in three subsequent runs and with that last 10-furlong effort under the belt, one that she was only a few strides off saluting in, this event is a logical progression.

Gosford Value Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Linguee
While she's still very much a work in progress, this filly does have her fair share of ability and despite being a little tardy away on return at Newcastle, recorded a first-up victory on June 12 over 1200m.
The debut for Linguee came in December where absolutely nothing went right for her as favourite, making contact with the barrier on jumping and laid in over the last furlong after racing three-wide throughout that journey.
That event at Gosford has turned out to be a strong Maiden (multiple winners produced including dual city winner Expat) and while plain in her most recent attempt, she did pull up with the thumps following that June 30 event, so there was definite excuses.
