METROPOLITAN racing moves to Dapto this Saturday night with Wentworth Park still sidelined due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis in Greater Sydney.

And with the increased prizemoney on the offing at the South Coast circuit there is some fantastic racing programmed, including an intriguing five-dog contest over the gruelling 729 metres.

FIELDS AND FORM DAPTO THURSDAY NIGHT

Best Bets

RACE 7 NUMBER 2 – ESTHER’S DIVA

She’s having her third run back from a two-month break with return runs resulting in a win and a fourth at Richmond over the sprint. Comes to Dapto with a very handy record at the circuit and from her box two draw should have the speed to lead. Expect she burns the red off which is better known over longer while the inside advantage gives her the chance to hold out the outside brigade. Trained by Sam Sultana who bats at over 30 per cent when racing at Dapto, expecting her to be in the finish. 

RACE 8 NUMBER 8 – ON THE ROCKS

Awesome three-way clash here between city stars Ebby Jet Power, Drink Moet and our tip, On The Rocks, but not dismissing Ice Cream Story either. Battle for the front will prove all important and On The Rocks has a knack of flying the lids when carrying the pink rug where she’s won at four of seven occasions. Not in the vintage form she was in early doors but she’s won her past two and really keen on her at what is her Dapto debut.

RACE 9 NUMBER 6 – GOOD ODDS CASH

Quality bitch capable of winning a nice race at some stage. On the quick back-up after finding herself never out of bother in a fast class race at Bulli on Wednesday night. Returns to Dapto where she boasts three wins from as many appearances and couldn’t be any better placed in this fifth grade assignment given her record. Tricky draw but has the class to overcome.

Best Value

RACE 2 NUMBER 4 – DUBROVNIK

Has her share of ability and at nice each-way odds is worth a ticket at her Dapto debut. Vacant box to her direct outside is an advantage and worth noting she is a 22.59 at Richmond. Won the five of 16 overall and should have the speed to position handy in this field.
