Victoria’s sporting spotlight turns from AFL to the Turnbull Stakes meeting at Flemington this Saturday and IASbet.com bookmaker Mark Read believes that all winning factors point to the very consistent Predatory Pricer ($4.60).
“Considering all facets of his last race, the effort of Predatory Pricer was outstanding. Going into the Turnbull Stakes this week he has drawn ideally, is ready to compete at peak fitness and has an advantageous drop in weight.”
Read also rates Red Ruler ($7.50) as the best weighted horse in the field.
Bookmakers are at the mercy of punters with favourite Speed Gifted ($3.40) in the Metropolitan this Saturday. A win will cement his place in the Caulfield Cup. “Lee Freedman will have Speed Gifted wound up for this race,” Read said. “By my speed map, he will have every chance with a perfect run in transit.”
