meeting preview for sun dec 8, 2019

The last meeting of 2019 and the last feature race of the year with the Colonial Chief Stakes (race 8) looking a fascinating race on paper.

At first glance there look plenty of chances over the metric mile on the Poly, however, at closer inspection the equal top-weight, PREDITOR, looks thrown in at the race conditions and he should be extremely hard to beat.

Yes, the 7YO hasn't won for over a year and it's well over two since his last Polytrack victory, but he has been racing at the top level off a current rating of 103 and given he meets his nearest rival some 6kg better at the weights v rating ratio, he should win from gate 3 and blinkers added for good measure.

YABADABADOO may be the danger on recent form - his eye-catching run in the Gold Cup won't be missed - while WOLF WARRIOR will also have admirers given his penchant for the all-weather surface.

Elsewhere on the card, HEALTHY STAR didn't make the winning debut as predicted when finding one better over 1100m in November, but he didn't lose many friends and the drop back to 1000m looks ideal and he is hard to beat in race 4.

Best Bets: (HEALTHY STAR race 4, win), (PREDITOR race 8, win), and (YULONG GREEN race 11, value).

Bankers for Jackpots: Race 8 (1, 4, 8 and 9), race 9 (2, 3, 4 and 12), race 10 (3, 4, 5 and 7), race 11 (2, 3, 8 and 12).
