Race 3 – Crisp Steeplechase: No.1 Sea King
Patrick Payne has an absolute champion on his hands in Sea King. He bolted in to win the Thackeray and was hammered in betting late to win the Mosstropper in a truly gutsy performance on heavy going. Absolutely loves the wet going. Has won on this track and placed in the Crisp in 2015. Steve Pateman is on board. Should be winning.
Race 4 – Grand National Hurdle: No.6 Slowpoke Rodriguez
Sticking with Slowpoke Rodriguez, who looks a great each-way bet at around $15. Was given a poor ride at Gawler before charging home and just missing out at Casterton. This is a big jump in class but the step up to 3900m suits. Has a heap of upside.
