📢 THE WATCHDOG’S $10 INVESTMENT 📢
📅 Wednesday 9 February

💰 $4 Win – STORY UNFOLDS
📍 The Meadows 🏁 Race 10 🔲 Box 1 📏 600m ⏱ 2:42pm
TAB fixed odds: $3.20 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666542452/race/10


The Watchdog says
🎤 : He has been placed in both runs here and he is drawn to hold the top in the initial stages. With four runs over this journey under his belt, I’m expecting him to hit the line a lot better today and he looks very well graded in this event.

💰 $4 Multi

Win – BANG

TAB fixed odds: $2.25 Win
Form 👉 https://watchdog.grv.org.au/meeting/666542454/race/9


The Watchdog says
🎤 : BANG (8) has scored some tremendous wins of late and there should be no excuses from the good draw. MEPUNGA LEGEND (8) is another who is ideally drawn out wide and with an ounce of luck through the bend, he should be able to put a gap in them mid race.

💰 $2 Place – KINSON BALE

👀 Must Watch Race 👀

Group Listed Western Districts Derby Final

📍 Ballarat 🏁 Race 8
🔲 Box 2 📏 450m ⏱ 9:18pm

TAB fixed odds: $2.10 Place

The Watchdog says 🎤: Group 1 Melbourne Cup placegetter KINSON BALE (2) is one of the most consistent chasers in the state. If Group 1 Silver Chief runner-up COMPLIANCE (1) can hold a prominent spot early, KINSON BALE should get a nice run through mid-race and be there to strike as they turn for home.

‘Must Watch Race’ Preview 🎤:

Every edition of this race is always strong; however, this year’s final is at another level. COMPLIANCE (1) was narrowly beaten by ZIPPY TESLA in the Group 1 Silver Chief final, and he was brilliant in his 25.10sec heat win last Wednesday night. He has come up with the inside draw and if he can step away cleanly, he may be able to hold the top at the bend and he’ll take some catching. PADDY WANTS PATS (8) lit up the clock in his heat and he is a tremendous talent, however from the wide draw he’ll have to work hard in the initial stages, and he can’t afford to give any of these chasers a start. MEPUNGA MUSTANG (7) captured the Warrnambool Derby recently and he continues to go to another level each week. KINSON BALE (2) and BOSTON GARDEN (4) are both star chasers and must be respected.
