📢 THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT 📢
📅 Saturday 11 December

💰 $4 Multi


First
🦵:
Win – AFRO PUFF
📍 Shepparton 🏁 Race 1 🔲 Box 5 📏 385m ⏱ 9:26am
TAB fixed odds: $1.80 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540461/race/1


Second
🦵: Win – NOMAD ROAD
📍 Shepparton 🏁 Race 2 🔲 Box 1 📏 385m ⏱ 9:43am
TAB fixed odds: $1.80 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540461/race/2


The Watchdog says
🎤 : AFRO PUFF (5) sizzled early on debut at Bendigo, and he will be on the pace from the outset. He should hit the line a lot better today and this race doesn’t have a lot of depth. NOMAD ROAD (1) comes up with the good draw and she is expected to hold a forward spot through the turn, and she will prove too strong in the run home.


Multi price:
$3.24

💰 $4 Place – CABERNET GIRL
📍 Shepparton 🏁 Race 6 🔲 Box 2 📏 450m ⏱ 10:45am
TAB fixed odds: $2.20 Place
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666540461/race/6


The Watchdog says
🎤 : Her form isn’t great, but she has been doing most of her racing in town and she comes into this event nice and fresh. She is normally armed with slick early speed, so if she can settle in the top three, she should be able to stay there throughout.

💰 $2 Exacta – 1 / 2,3,5,8 (50%)

👀 Must Watch Race 👀

Goldfields Cup Final

📍 Ballarat 🏁 Race 6
📏 450m ⏱ 7:22pm

The Watchdog says 🎤: ULTIMATE AVENGER (1) was brilliant last Saturday morning, and he is drawn to make every post a winner. HENNESSEY (4) is the second pick in the betting, however he is poorly drawn, so we have gone wide for second in the hope of securing some value.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎤:

Thrilling line-up and the Joe Borg-trained ULTIMATE AVENGER (1) holds the key. He managed to cross from box seven in his heat when carving out a blistering 25.04sec and a repeat of that can see him go close again. His kennelmate MASKED AVENGER (3) can come out running in his races and he will keep him honest. HENNESSEY (4) is the interesting runner. He’s won seven on the spin and he has been carving up the clock on the provincial circuit. The draw is a big concern tonight, so he will need to do everything right at box rise. ANGUS RHODE (2) is another star chaser and must be respected.
