Race 8 – Matthews Petroleum Hamilton Pacing Cup – This Group 3 main event will be worth a total of $30,000 in prize money. Keayang Kallisto will be the favourite here, narrowly, thanks to a strong last start win at Terang almost 2 weeks ago. She is in peak condition and near career best form, so expect a bold showing from here again. Berisari is a consistently top performing horse, having scored 31 features in 38 starts. She’s resuming here after a near whole year off. She has 4 wins and 4 feature places in her 8 first up runs and is a strong chance to further improve those figures here. Bad Billy has improved his form in his last two runs, scoring a win and a last start third place. Expect him to have another strong showing here. Keep safe.
Betting: Keayang Kallisto $2.75; Berisari $2.90; It Is Billy $5.50; Bad Billy $6.00; Keep On Rocking $7.50; Perspective $12.00; Mustang Bart $16.00.
