The second half of the card at Caulfield on Saturday may have been cancelled, but there was still plenty of winners to be found right around the country and one of our punters did exactly that.
Our punter started his four-legged attack with short-priced favourite Balf’s Choice in the sixth race at Morphettville and it really wasn’t the easiest of watches.
Balf’s Choice settled three-wide in the second half of the field and was forced to come very wide heading into the straight, but Jamie Kah never panicked and the promising galloper kept finding the line to get our punter off to a winning start.
The Townsville Cup was the next cab off the ranks and our punter elected to take the conservative approach when he backed favourite Chivadahlii to finish in the placings.
Chivadahlii and Flying Light put a gap on the field to fight out the finish and it didn’t really bother our punter, but connections were sure to have been thrilled when Chivadahlii proved too tough in the concluding stages.
Rosehill Gardens was the next port of attack for our punter and he backed Godolphin-owned Philosophy to take out the final race of the day at the juicy odds of $5.50.
Philosophy looked like something of a sitting duck in the final stages of the race as the Chris Waller-trained Awoke stormed home, but Philosophy held on gallantly to move one leg away from a huge collect.
It was big wait for our punter before the final leg of his multi in the final race at Belmont and we are confident that he spent those couple of hours questioning why he put a $31 chance as the final leg of his multi?
Our punter snapped up the huge price of $12 for Ryamar to finish in the placings in the Penfolds Handicap, but his multi really did look in big trouble when the field turned into the straight as Ryamar was still several lengths off the lead and under heavy riding.
Ryamar slowly started to pick-up and although he never looked a hope in hell of picking up the leader By Decree, he did enough to get our punter’s multi home and help him turn $110 into $31,119!
It could have been even an even bigger day for our punter – his fifth leg was Revolving Door in the seventh race at Caulfield and the collect would have been $77,797.50 if the clear favourite had got the job done!
