Experts' tip for Instant Success
THIS afternoon's Cabcharge Sportsman's Raceday at Coffs Harbour looks to have thrown up a near certain winner late in the day.
The track has been rated by stewards as a Slow (7) and those conditions play right into the hands of Instant Success in the Hospitality Cup Benchmark 65 Handicap.
Three expert tipsters have selected the Covetous gelding to salute the judges in race six with Greg Polson from racenet.com.au making the nine year-old his bet of the day.
Instant Success showed he was close to another win when narrowly beaten into second place at Grafton last start.
The gelding's record on different track conditions provide interesting reading.
Instant Success is yet to win on good rated tracks in 22 starts but the record improves considerably when the sting is out of the ground.
The record is a little better for heavy tracks with one win and one placing from eight runs but the dead and slow tracks clearly show the gelding's preferred racing surface.
Instant Success has won four times on dead tracks to add to his three placings whilst the slow track record reads two wins and three placings from eight starts.
That gives Instant Success a winning strike-rate of 33 percent on dead and slow tracks.
Instant Success looks well placed at Coffs Harbour and will be given every chance from barrier three with Glen Lynch on board.
