Jack Milner: Racing on the Polytrack has some punters a little nervous but there appear to be three good bets on the Fairview card on Monday.
All three are relatively short priced so the best way to go is take an All-To-Come bet on the trio and that could make the odds more attractive.
However, as there are only eight races on the card and the three are Teofilia in Race 1, Blushing Bride in Race 2 and Dubula in Race 7, they can also be used as bankers in various exotic bets.
The first kicks off the BiPot, Race 2 is the start of the Place Accumulator and Race 7 is part of the Pick 6 and Jackpot.
Teofilia has run twice for two seconds and his last race introduced him to the Polytrack. He was well beaten by Big Bay that day but Gavin Smith’s charge was all the rage and went off as the 15-20 favourite.
This not the strongest of fields and the danger to Teofilia, Black Night, finished 2.75 lengths behind him last time.
Alan Greeff and jockey Greg Cheyne have had a barren couple of meetings and a big win is on the cards.
Blushing Bride will be having her first start on the Polytrack but has placed in her two runs on the turf, the latest being in a feature race when third behind Luna Wish. Lyle Hewitson rides for Yvette Bremner.
Dubula is the best priced of the three but comes up against some very moderate opposition. He has won two of his last three starts, one with Bernard Fayd’Herbe up, who rides again.
