Daily Racing Tips – Black Opal Day Special
Canberra - Race 2 1:55pm AEDT
No. 4 Kristalove
Kristalove returned to the races with a tough third place finish at Canberra last start and she should take good improvement from that performance.
Quayde Krogh will take her straight to the front in the early stages of this contest and she will give her rivals something to catch.
Canberra - Race 3 2:32pm AEDT
No. 10 Underground Music
Underground Music has gone to another level this campaign and he heads into this contest on the back of a classy win at Canberra last start.
A repeat of that effort would make him tough to beat and he still has plenty of upside to improve.
Canberra - Race 6 4:30pm AEDT
No. 2 Brave Song
This is a very even edition of the National Sprint and you can make a case for a number of the horses in this field.
Brave Song doesn’t win out of turn, but he is a consistent performer and he is rarely far away at this level.
He has been freshened-up since he finished second in the John Dillon Stakes and he generally does produce his best fresh.
Canberra - Race 7 5:10pm AEDT
No. 3 Construct
I remain confident that Construct is a better horse than his record suggests and he is great value in the Black Opal Stakes.
His runs in both the Blue Diamond Prelude and the Blue Diamond Stakes were better than they looked on paper and this is a genuine drop in class.
Tom Marquand in the saddle is a positive and he should be flying home late.
