Key Race

Race 7 – Carlton Draught Bow Mistress Trophy – This Group 3 feature race will see a total of $150,000 in prize money up for grabs. Life On The Wire will be the favourite here thanks to her stunning form since resuming from a 7 month lay off back in September, winning all 4 races. She has yet to run this year, having spent the last 6 weeks freshening up for this race. She’s won 3 of her 4 first up races and on fresh legs here, will be the one to chase down. Gee Gee Double Dee is also in magnificent form of late, winning all of her last three races, which were all on this track and over similar distances. Huge win chance here. Galeocerdo could well find herself amongst the features given her career best form right now has produced 4 wins and a pair of features . Will be right in the mix.


Betting: Life On The Wire $2.70; Gee Gee Double Dee $3.50; Deja Blue $6.50; Gogo Grace $8.00; No Money No Honey $13.00; Step The Pedal $14.00; Galeocerdo $15.00; Balancing Act $23.00; Jocasta $23.00; Tizso Wicked $34.00; Tough Missile $34.00.
