ROSEHILL

RACE ONE
Favourite backers were on the money in the SKY Racing Active Handicap (1100 metres).
Muntaseera ($3 on Wednesday), was pretty solid today and hovered around the $2-$2.10 mark for most of the betting before jumping at the latter quote.
The Ciaron Maher & David Eustace runner was nearly three times as popular as Chilliwack ($3.20) which was second pick in the market. Overall, the winner accounted for 60 percent of the total investment.
BETS: Muntaseera $4,250 @ $2.10, $23,200 @ $2, $2,000 @ $2 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Chilliwack $2,200 @ $3

RACE TWO
There was a nice move for Run Like A Rebel in the TAB Highway handicap (1200 metres) which was double figures for most of the week.
The Aaron Clarke runner was $12 this morning and got into as low as $8.50 before jumping at $9.
Most of the money sat with Bullet Speed, which eased from $2.60-$3.20, and Designer Dance ($8.50-$5).

RACE THREE
Princess Cordelia landed some big bets in the TAB Highway Handicap (1200 metres) after going around with a tick over half the total investment.
The Mitchell Beer runner was nearly four times as popular as anything else in the race and was backed from $3.50-$2.70 before going back to $3 at the jump.
Of the others, Congregate ($8.50-$5.50) was best tried.

RACE FOUR
Jen Rules attracted some nice eachway investments in the fourth event on the program.
The Team Snowden runner hovered around the $10 mark this morning and got into as low as $8.50 before going back out late to $9.50.
While she had admirers, most of the betting activity focused around Brazilica ($5.50-$4.20) Suave ($4.20-$3.80) with the pair accounting for more than 50 percent of the market.
Coterie ($7.50-$5.50) was specked late.
BETS: Jen Rules $1,000 e/w @ $10/$3.20
BETS: Brazilica $4,450 e/w @ $4.20/$1.75

RACE FIVE
Favourite backers were sent packing after Mansa Musa went down as a popular elect in the Ranvet Handicap (1100 metres).
The $3.30 favourite went around with nearly three times as much money as the next best supported runner, which was ultimately the winner Invictus Salute ($5-$7.50) which got out in the market.
Roman Typhoon ($16-$11) was specked at a big price late while Oriental Runner was $26 on Wednesday and jumped a $8.50 shot.
BETS: Invictus Salute $1,000 @ $7.50
BETS: Mansa Musa $1,820 @ $3.30, $2,000 @ $3, $1,100 @ $3
BETS: Oriental Runner $1,000 @ $7.50

RACE SIX
Alward defied a slight drift in betting to get the money in the ATC Cup (2000 metres).
The Chris Waller runner was $5-$7 on the day despite carrying some support at eachway odds. House Of Cartier ($5 on Wednesday) was the first horse backed when markets opened and was a very popular $3.20 favourite.
Grey Lion ($17-$13), Black On Gold ($12-$5.50) and Morton's Fork ($8) had admirers.
BETS: House Of Cartier $3,000 @ $3.40, $2,000 @ $3.20

RACE SEVEN
The big move for Live And Free just failed to come off in the Iron Jack Festival Stakes (1500 metres).
The John O'Shea-trained runner was $15-$8 but was narrowly beaten in a photo by Ranier ($5-$6) which was the second best supported runner in the race.
Bobbing, an $11 chance on Wednesday, bottomed out at $4.60 before starting an equal $6 fav with Ranier. It held the most money.
BETS: Ranier $500 e/w @ $5.50/$2.10
BETS: Sambro $5,000 @ $14, $1,000 @ $10

RACE EIGHT
It was an upset in the Drinkwise Starlight Stakes (1100 metres) with Spending To Win blowing most punters away at $34 on TAB Fixed Odds.
The Team Snowden runner led throughout for Tim Clark to hold off the well supported Glenall ($8.50-$6), with Handle The Truth ($2.90) filling third after sitting wide throughout.
Handle The Truth went around as favourite but didn't hold the most money. That honour went to Bon Amis ($4.60-$5.50).
BETS: Spending To Win $250 e/w @ $31/$7, $250 e/w @ $26/$6
BETS: Qiji Express $1,000 e/w @ $41/$8

BETS: Sandbar $1,000 x $2,000 e/w @ $8.50/$2.70
BETS: Handle The Truth $1,260 @ $2.90

RACE NINE
A move which began on Wednesday paid dividends in the Mick Crook Memorial Handicap (1500 metres).
Orcein was $8 when markets first opened and was the subject of immediate support. Today, he was $6-$4.80 and one of the better tried runners in the race.
Convinced went around as a heavily supported favourite though. The Team Snowden runner was $4.80-$3.90 and held nearly four times that of the winner.
BETS: Convinced $2,075 @ $3.70, $2,000 e/w @ $3.70/$1.70, $1,000 @ $3.70, $1,000 @ $3.60

MOONEE VALLEY

RACE ONE
All the big money was riding on Tagaloa and it landed the cash in the Strath Haven Preston Sprint Plate (1000 metres).
The son of Lord Kanaloa was twice as popular as anything else and held 40 percent of the total investment.
Baaqyah ($5.50) was next best supported in front of The Big Easy ($5.50). Narvaez ($11-$12-$8) and Yulong Island ($8.50-$10-$7) were specked late.
Tagaloa was $5 on Wednesday and bottomed out at $3 today before getting back out to $4 late.
BETS: Tagaloa $1,500 @ $4, $1,000 @ $4 TWICE, $25,000 @ $3.70
BETS: Narvaez $1,000 @ $10
BETS: Baaqyah $1,000 @ $5.50

RACE TWO
Most of the attention here was with Balaabel and November Dreaming.
The pair held nearly 80 percent of the market and there was very little separating them at the jump. November Dreaming ($2.90-$2.50-$2.60) was fav in front of the McEvoy runner which was $2.80 second pick.
Westbrook Park only had light specking and eased from $6-$8.
BETS: Balaabel $2,000 @ $2.70
BETS: November Dreaming $1,000 @ $2.60
BETS: Jimmys Secret $1,000 @ $10

RACE THREE
This was a fairly competitive betting affair with every horse coming in for some sort of decent support.
Causeway Girl ($4.80-$4.20-$4.80) was the most popular runner in terms of money held in front of Bella Vella ($4.40-$4.20-$5) and Can'tforgetyou ($4.40-$5).
BETS: Causeway Girl $5,000 @ $4.20, $2,000 e/w @ $4.80/$2.50
BETS: Equal Love $1,500 x $500 e/w @ $7/$3
BETS: Fill The Flute $1,000 @ $5.50 MULTIPLE TIMES

RACE FOUR
James Cummings and Dwayne Dunn were on the money with Wagner taking out the Murray Nangatta Handicap (1000 metres) in fine style.
The Godolphin runner had good backing ever since the market opened and went around a $3.20 favourite. Despite holding top billing in the market, Wagner wasn't the most popular runner with that honour going to Mystyko ($4.20-$3.90).
BETS: Wagner $1,100 @ $3.40, $1,000 @ $3.20
BETS: Mystyko $1,000 @ $4.20, $1,000 @ $3.90, $1,000 @ $3.80 TWICE
BETS: Lagerfeld $1,200 @ $4.20

RACE FIVE
The Strathdon Box Hill Handicap (1500 metres) was a very good betting race between the top three in the market.
Talenti went around as an even money favourite but he wasn't completely dominant in terms of the total hold. Money on him accounted for 47 percent of the total investment while Bill The Bee ($3.90-$3.30) had 30 percent and firmed throughout the day.
Manhattan Arch ($5.50) was well supported throughout the week.
BETS: Talenti $3,000 @ $2, $1,500 @ $2 TWICE, $1,356 @ $1.95
BETS: Bill The Bee $2,000 @ $3.30, 1,000 @ $3.30

RACE SIX
Rubisaki was the best backed runner outside the favourite in the sixth event on the card over 1200 metres.
The Patrick Payne runner was $3.10 out to as much as $4, however, jumped a $3.80 chance after solid support late in betting. A filly by Rubick, she held just under a quarter of the total investment.
Somals ($3-$2.30) was crunched in betting and went around as a popular favourite.
BETS: Rubisaki $1,500 @ $4, $1,000 @ $4, $1,000 @ $3.90
BETS: Somals $2,000 @ $2.40, $7,500 @ $2.30, $1,500 @ $2.30, $1,000 @ $2.30
BETS: Alburq $1,500 e/w @ $13/$3

RACE SEVEN
Sure Knee sent favourite backers reeling after only finishing third in the Ace Seating Handicap (1600 metres).
The Chris Waller mare was responsible for 60 percent of the total investment. Opening the day as a $1.90 favourite, she was backed into $1.70 and was heavily tried through multis.
Something Silver ($15-$13) was nibbled at the eachway odds.
BETS: Sure Knee $3,334 @ $1.90, $2,250 @ $1.90, $6,000 @ $1.70, $5,000 @ $1.75

RACE EIGHT
The two favs fought this one out.
Secret Blaze ($3.70) and Rupture ($3.80-$3.20) were two of the most popular horses in the race along with Savaheat ($8.50) which carried solid eachway support.
Danon Roman ($17-$14-$16) attracted some good money late also.
BETS: Secret Blaze $1,000 @ 44, $1,500 @ $3.80, $1,000 @ $3.60
BETS: Rupture $1,400 @ $3.60, $1,500 @ $3.20, $1,000 @ $3.20, $2,000 @ $3.10
BETS: Savaheat $1,000 @ $8.50 MULTIPLE TIMES, $2,000 e/w @ $8/$2.40

RACE NINE
While Never Again saluted at double figure odds it wasn't a total surprise to TAB customers.
Going around in the Daemco Handicap (1200 metres) at $17 after bottoming out at $13, the Clint McDonald-trained runner went around with a number of sizable eachway bets (see below) and landed the cash with Jye McNeil on board.
Morrissy firmed from $4.40-$3.70 late while Spirit Of Aquada went the other way $4.60-$5.50.
BETS: Never Again $1,500 e/w @ $16/$4.60, $1,000 e/w @ $16/$4.60, $1,000 @ $15, $1,000 @ $14
