bet365 Best From The West: Kalgoorlie – 7th October 2023

Saturday racing goes to Kalgoorlie for Cup day and the market has it a race in two.

In the Cup, we have a feeling that Be Optimistic has had a lovely set up for this race.

Finishing off very nicely in the Coolgardie Cup, she did the same in the Boulder Cup behind the current favourite here.

The difference, besides a small swing in the weights in her favour, is a better progression in race distance.

Villeins has been at this type of distance for four straight runs whereas the daughter of Blackfriars keeps stepping up.

Given it isn't a large field, she won't have a huge leeway to make up and is the play in the Cup.

A good sprint race earlier in the day sees plenty of apprentices impacting the weight scale.

You just have to like the way Talk It Up has been racing with four wins from his last five outings.

After the 7lbs claim for Brayden Gaerth, the 6yo now gets to 120lbs which is a huge drop from his last start victory.

His early gate speed can allow him to come across and lead if they so wish or sit outside lead.

Punters just like horses who are winners and he is just that at present.


BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 6 #3 Talk It Up @ $7.00 with bet365*

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 8 #5 Be Optimistic @ $4.60 with bet365*

*Odds correct at 1:00pm 5/10/23
