Ladbrokes Back Yourself Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)
Sale Best Bet - Race 3 No. 10 Sublime Diva
An extremely well bred daughter of Makybe Diva, she’s having her sixth run for the preparation and looks set to breakthrough after knocking on the door via her most recent outings.
Last start she was runner-up behind Wristband who shows nice ability and although she was no match for that winner, finishing in behind her were two subsequent winners in Fabalot and I’m Here Too which franks the form.
Sublime Diva drops to a weaker maiden here with limited depth, will get the run of the race and doesn’t have to improve at all on any of her recent runs to figure heavily in the finish as the best bet at Sale this Thursday.

Sale Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 6 Slipintothis
Lining up for only start number two is this son of Proisir who jumps straight to the mile and has a positive jockey change with star hoop Damien Oliver jumping in the saddle.
Oliver has gone at 25% for the month of August so far and even more impressive is his strike rate at Sale over the past 12 months which is an outrageous 39%.
Slipintothis was fantastic late on debut in really attacking the line strongly late to run third in a race he wins if it goes another 100m and from barrier five here where he can camp closer over this longer trip, he should get every chance with natural improvement expected.

Sale Value Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Nebaraz
This Written Tycoon gelding is now third-up from a spell and in a very winnable race with Damien Oliver to ride, he represents value in the last from Sale this Thursday.
Last start Nebaraz got back to last and made up steady ground in the straight without being extraordinary, however, the start before on this circuit was very encouraging when finishing third and hitting the line hard late.
Nebaraz was sent out $1.60 on debut and duly saluted then was immediately sent to town by the Busuttin & Young stable, so there's clearly an opinion there and he looks ready to peak now stepping up to the seven furlongs.
