Our punter of the week filled-up on the favourites on Saturday’s racing.
It was Bow Creek ($5.00) who got this punter off to a winning start in Caulfield Race 5. Drawn in barrier nine, Bow Creek missed the start but found its feet and settled down in 10th spot in the 13-runner field. Jockey Damien Oliver sat and suffered on the fence waiting for the run, and his patience was rewarded as the gaps came Bow Creek had more than enough pace to respond to his rider's urging and slip clear of the field.
$2.00 favourite Solicit was the next to produce the goods in the Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) at Randwick. Solicit led as expected and had plenty in the tank and raced to a one-length win over the fast-finishing Zanbagh.
The punters 3rd leg was on Turn Me Loose ($3.70) in G1 Futurity Stakes. Caught wide in the early stages of the weight-for-age race, Jockey Opie Bosson was able to give the favourite some cover in third spot before easing out to mount and edge clear. 3 legs down 2 to go!
This savvy punter then took the red hot Winx ($1.35) to win the Group 1 Chipping Norton Stakes (1600m) at Randwick. It was never in doubt as Winx stretched her winning sequence to 7 and added another Group One triumph to a growing list of achievements.
Starting favourite at $2.70, Extreme Choice was this punters final leg. Forced to cover ground late but he went to lead under a tight grip before striding clear over Flying Artie who was carted deep on the home turn.
The favourites filled-up and so did our punter of the week! Congrats.
