ALBURY HARNESS TONIGHT WITH BRENT GODDE
While it has been a forgettable year, let's make it a New Year's Eve to remember. While some of the races look like a minefield for punters, have settled on four best bets and would be surprised if they didn't show a profit. Then with our pockets full of cash, we can sit back, relax and enjoy the fireworks.
RACE 1 - RED TERROR
Former Queenslander who finds himself against moderate opposition and the easiest race he has contested for 12 months. Was more than competitive when running in a much tougher race at Shepparton last-start. Will go forward from the favourable draw and if he finds the front as expected, will prove too slick for his rivals.
RACE 3 -ABERCROMBIE FLASH
Looks to be a two-horse race between Abercrombie Flash and Soho Beijing who boast far superior form to their rivals. The pair clashed earlier this month with Abercrombie Flash proving too strong. Although drawn awkwardly in gate six, you know driver John Scott won't die wondering and will attack for the lead. Jump in the queue to collect early and beat the rush if Scott finds the front.
RACE 5 - ENCRYPTION
Lightly raced gelding who produced some blistering sectionals when resuming at Wagga and running fifth. Will strip fitter for the run and won't find an easier race to notch his first win. Although Encryption is still a maiden, he looks a progressive pacer in the making and have the ability to go through his grades quickly after a confidence boosting win tonight.
RACE 7 - GLITZY ALL OVER
It's always fraught with danger tipping first starters but judging on the trial form, Glitzy All Over can make a winning debut. The daughter of Modern Art won her first trial. She then was narrowly beaten by Yourockanna at her most recent trial and got home in 57.7. If she can repeat that tonight, will prove hard to beat in maiden grade.
