The Galaxy 2020 Best Bet - Deprive @ $10.00

Tough race for a standout however it's a sprint event that appeals for the value hunters out there and this son of Denman appears far better suited compared to his fresh attempt.

A Godolphin five-year-old that was one of the better supported late runners ($4.20 - $3.70) in that Challenge Stakes at Randwick, he was in no man's land from the outset when settling well off them near the rear.

In a tough card to be making ground, he was certainly doing his best work late and in a bigger field here where he can blend in late with plenty of speed drawn out, suits.

At the decent each way odds available, we're with Deprive to make further inroads second-up who's well weighted as the best bet in The Galaxy for 2020.

The Galaxy 2020 Value Bet - I Am Excited @ $31.00

Compared to Fasika, this mare is a wildly big quote off the Wenona Girl Girl Quality effort on March 7.

That talented daughter of So You Think dictated proceedings in that affair where she was given all of the favors in the process and five-year-old was the pick of those chasing.

There's a 2kg swing in the weights in I Am Excited's advantage from that race and with Fasika drawn out, there's a large discrepancy in the $8.50 versus $31.00 that the market currently presents.

Looking for Tim Clark to settle I Am Excited closer on settling from barrier two and in a wide open race, she isn't without a bolters chance in The Galaxy.
