Place Your Bet (R4) for veteran Glenorchy trainer Ted Devine should be hard to beat on a strong ten event program at Tattersall’s Park tonight.

This Big Daddy Cool pup ran a terrific second to Riley Diary in the Breeder’s Classic Final in mid July and first up for a month this big pup should be cherry ripe off the inside box.

His record stands at 3 wins and 3 placings from 7 starts and is clearly the fastest dog in the race.

Last week’s winner Sheldon Cooper for Russell Watts and Hellyeah Rocket who will be better suited off an inside draw will be his main opposition.

Matt Black (R9) for Richmond trainer Margaret Rossendell looks very hard to beat in this Mixed 4 & 5 stake.

After his brilliant 26.03 win a fortnight ago he had no luck here last week running fourth to Spendles and should be followed with confidence.

Awesome Pedro and Brindle Bolta should be taken in the multiples.

The Moorleah kennels of trainer Russell Watts are on fire producing another double on Monday night and Sour Pop (R5) should continue that trend.

This son of Where’s Pedro has now won his last three on the track including last week’s personal best run of 26.15 and looks very hard to beat.

Jack Pines and Our Silhouette are next best while Domenic’s Joanne could be one to follow.

Sultan’s Swing (R7) is looking for win 27 at Hobart while Cartoon Kid (R6) should be better suited from the inside.

Best Bets: R4 No 1 Place Your Bet, R5 No 5 Sour Pop, R7 No 8 Sultan’s Swing.

Best E/W: R3 No 6 Carlita Bale, R9 No 4 Matt Black, R10 No 4 Sandbanker.
