  • To Win: #2 Nudge ($13 at time of publish)

Going for value and love the 12/1 offer on Nudge to win this Group 3 first-up. She’s a classy mare from the Waller stable and, while she’s certainly better suited to a mile, she’s too consistent not to take at the price racing for the first time since her Group 1 second to Tofane in Brisbane. First-up record isn’t great, but there’s a first for everything!
