Saturday's Australian horse racing bet of the day - Perfect filly set for debut win

  • This one looks very smart and finds a suitable race to kick off with a win.
  • Confidence rating: 98%

Firstly, I never do a RBOTD for Saturday or Sunday but I didn’t want to let this one slip by without passing it on to regular readers.

On Friday night we scored a nice $7 winner with a horse than was held back in the trials, but Saturday’s runner was more impressive at the trials, and trainer Jerome Hunter has placed her to perfection (no pun intended).

Perfect Statue, is an unraced three-year-old filly by Statue Of Liberty, and she certainly has enough talent to win this maiden on debut.

She went around in an 800m barrier trial at Cranbourne where she finished 4th behind Cambridge Lady.

The inexperienced filly was very slow to begin and was a clear last after going 50m, but she quickly gathered speed and was cruising up along the inside of runners on the bend.

She really started to hit her straps over the concluding stages but was cluttered up behind three horses and had nowhere to go.

She was pulled up to avoid the leaders rear end and swished her tail as she wasn’t happy that she couldn’t do what racehorses do and win her race – a great sign for a young horse. 

If she’d seen daylight and been asked for an effort, she would have exploded past them.

Cambridge Lady has since competed at Moonee Valley on Friday night, and although she finished 5.8 lengths from the winner in a 1200m BM64, she failed to run the last 200m out and this was a much tougher assignment than Perfect Statue will face.

Perfect Statue lines up in Race 1, the TAB – We Love a Bet Maiden Plate (1000m) on Saturday evening, and besides Robert Smerdon’s Let’s Go To Rio who is also yet to race, the others all have exposed form and I think Perfect Statue can beat them.

Let’s Go To Rio has had five trials and was spelled and then returned for another recent trial that wasn’t really impressive. 

Statue Of Liberty on the other hand did trial exceptionally well, and provided she improves her jumping manners, she can get a nice trail behind the speed from barrier 4, before blowing them away with a smart turn of foot in the straight.

1000m looks a perfect starting point, and considering she had so much more to offer in the trial after making up ground from her slow beginning, I have no doubt she’ll be powering through the line.
