MANDURAH STOCKFEEDS MAIDEN Tips (Race 2)
Pinjarra Value Bet - Race 2 No. 6 Ranga Roll
While we obviously need to concede a chance to the odds-on favourite Powerful Force, he is very short for a galloper that really hasn't done a whole to justify that quote and is now at his sixth run in just his first racing preparation.
This filly has admittedly had her chances as well with 11 starts to her name, but has come out of some stronger races over the journey and given she has been beaten a little for speed early in her last few attempts, the step up to seven furlongs should help assist in finding her feet early.
The one thing that Ranga Roll has shown is at least something resembling a turn-of-foot, a trait that hasn't been evident with many of her rivals, so with ideally a closer sit in transit over this longer trip from barrier three, she can sprint late and give this a shake at a fair price.
TABTOUCH PINJARRA CUP SUNDAY APRIL 11 MAIDEN Tips (Race 3)
Pinjarra Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 The Fibonacci
With the blinkers now finally going on, a gear change that looks needed off every public display we've seen of him to date, we'll finally get a gauge on this three-year-old who finds a Maiden with very little depth via the third from Pinjarra on Thursday.
Despite being quite raw, The Fibonacci has always shown some ability over his short journey to date which was evident in his debut when sent out as a well-supported favourite ($1.85-$1.55) back in September, a race he arguably would've won if not in restricted room over the concluding stages.
He was three-wide the trip and laying-in on return at Bunbury, so there were excuses but from barrier three on Thursday where Brad Parnham should be looking to put the foot down early, we can hopefully see what he's finally capable of with that key aforementioned gear change.
PINJARRA “SCARPSIDE” TRACK OPENING ON CUP DAY MAIDEN Tips (Race 4)
Pinjarra Best Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Rain God
There's no exposed form in this field barring the references around At War, who has the benefit of three preparations now under his belt, but he's had plenty chances and there wasn't much to love about his trial when under pressure behind a limited Yankee Lima.
One with much less convictions is this first starter, a filly prepared by the Adam Durrant stable that trialled quite well behind two handy one's at Lark Hill last November before being tipped out and is resuming off a hit-out here at Pinjarra on March 8, so has had a look at this course.
The most pleasing aspect of that was that she did respond when asked after Spiced Delight looked to have her cold, a filly that just missed in town on debut and has recently won a Lark Hill trial in very slick time while for Rain God, she has an outside alley which is generally an advantage over the straight 1000m dash.
