B&L Cox Electrical Three-Year-Old Maiden Plate Tips (Race 5)
Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Tuakana
Outside his main threats in the market, it is a Maiden that does appear to lack depth and off three good jump-out wins, this three-year-old can strike straight away over the 1400m on Wednesday.
Prepared by astute trainer Travis Doudle who is striking at 20% this year and a stable that has had good success with these similar New Zealand types, Tuakana has shown good speed in all of his work, seemingly improving with every outing ahead of this debut.
Ben Price sticks with this gelding for race day and bringing what is a very important 3kg claim, he can have the early favourite in Just Jazz working from out wide while he can either take up the lead or sit outside Goliotus, a rival that jumps from gate one.

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Silent Don
Ashton Downing-trained runners can be hot or cold and although that does sum up the two-start career to date for this three-year-old, he was completely unsuited on the Morphettville Parks circuit on June 5.
That performance was visually quite poor, but on a leader's track in an event taken out by a Stakes class Star Of Uma, nothing did make much impression from off the speed behind that favourite and Silent Don was a good debut winner prior to that outing.
The son of Dundeel should appreciate the rise in trip and plummeting all the way in grade from a Saturday BM68 to a Maiden/Class 1 Plate, he's had the benefit of a subsequent jump-out win when bolting on June 15, where the blinkers were reapplied.

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 7 No. 8 Exalted Dennis
The main query is if he's still a run short and given many of the Grant Young runners that are well primed do get market support if they're at decent odds, the late betting could well tell the story for this three-year-old.
A lightly raced gelding that has always shown potential at the trials, they went straight to town for the debut of Exalted Dennis in March last year, an event where he was a big drifter in the betting and he was tipped out after only one further outing.
On his Murray Bridge return via the June 13 meeting, he was very brave over the 1400m when sticking on well despite racing three-wide on the speed and over this longer journey, may be able to cross and take up the running under Ryan Hurdle.
