Saving the best till last

21 / 02 / 2013 Article by: Peter Staples

Punter’s may have a long wait at Tattersall’s Park tonight to find the best bet of the program but Reg’s Big Boy (R11) should not disappoint.

Trained at Mangalore by Rodney Campbell this son of Surf Lorian has won his four of his last five starts by big margins and in fast times.

Jumping from the pink tonight will be an added bonus and although the field contains in form runners Dream Choice and Got Beer Goggles, the big red fawn dog should be too quick.

Katsidis (R8) looks a good each way proposition in the last leg of the double and quadrella.

Having finished fourth in the Devonport Cup this son of Where’s Pedro beat Franklin Bluboy here last start and from the two should jump to the front and be very hard to catch.

Dark Warrior hasn’t had much luck at his previous two starts and deserves another chance while November Digger and Bergermeister must be taken in the multiples.

Tic Tac Thomas (R5) for Launceston’s Peter Dalton should be hard to beat jumping from box seven.
Best Bets: R1 No 1 Yankee Al, R5 No 7 Tic Tac Thomas, R11 No 8 Reg’s Big Boy.
Best E/W: R2 No 4 Technology, R3 No 6 Mackelroy, R8 No 2 Katsidis.
