SALE - Race 2
#8 DENIRRA (8) - L Oliver
DENIRRA matched motors with The Billionaire in Heat 14 on Aug 30, a runner that has been quite handy since being gelded. He got out to a lead, but this 4yo mare just tracked him in the straight and looked as though she had a bit left in the tank as she kept up, gapping 3rd (being the 68-rated Teramia) by 5L in slick time for the day. She had a very quiet Aug 16 in 4th, but this was a really nice bit of work. Her last start 2nd to Arroance reads well now too, with that runner winning a BM64 in her next start. Think she’s a big watch this preparation, and with SP’s of $31 and $15, we might get a longer price.
OUR THOUGHTS / BETS
Sale, Race 2 - DENIRRA
If you ignore her debut run, her second up run here at Sale was super with some nice form coming from it. With that run, she brings the best last start benchmark rating into this race having been scratched from a race at Wangaratta on Tuesday where she was well backed and we think she would've been competitive. Looks like a bit of speed so she will probably look to take a sit behind them and come over the top late with the big Sale straight.
Not convinced with COME ALONG JEFFREY, although his jump outs were nice and the blinkers go on with the change of stable - it might spark some improvement. Thought MISS SOLUCA could ran well at a price now second up too.
