Toorak Handicap Form Guide & Tips


1. Tofane ($11) Bet @ Sportsbet

Tofane is a quality Group 1 winner, but the weight of 58kg isn’t going to help. He went close behind Incentivise at Flemington last start, so that form bodes well.

We wouldn’t be overlooking his chances, so he enters trifecta and first four combos at the generous double-figure odds.

2. Superstorm ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet

He scored a good win over Elephant two back at Moonee Valley, and that form has since been franked.

Barrier 10 could make it difficult, but he’s likely to settle back in the run and come with a late burst.

3. Sierra Sue ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet

A winner of three of her last four starts, including at Group 1 level last start. The mare is always around the mark with eight wins from 18 starts, so she must be considered at the odds.

4. Elephant (Best Each Way – $5.50) Bet @ Sportsbet

The Kiwi owns six wins from seven starts, and his only defeat came to Superstorm two starts back at The Valley.

He is a professional type that likes to sit on the pace and make his own luck, but there could be solid pressure throughout this race.

Barrier five is ideal, so he should be right around the mark.

5. Lunar Fox ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet

Improving with time this preparation. However, we don’t think the Guineas winner is running well enough this season to warrant attention.

6. Dice Roll (Best Roughie – $10) Bet @ Sportsbet

The former Hong Kong runner won three in a row before going off the boil a touch, but he rebounded nicely with a second placing behind Sierra Sue.

It was a tough effort, and he gets every chance off the inside draw with a light weight.

7. Harbour Views ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet

Over the odds considering his form this season. That was a stylish fresh up win before hitting the line nicely for third last start.

$34 could be odds worth taking to boost payouts.

8. Quantum Mechanic ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet

Much better when third behind So You Assume, but we think that level of racing is a touch below what’s needed here.

Dropping in weight helps, but we would need longer odds.

9. Aysar ($31) Bet @ Sportsbet

Yet to win at Caulfield or over this distance, so we can’t have him selections. We would need to see a winning run before parting with our money.

10. Irish Flame ($126) Bet @ Sportsbet

Connections are having another go after failing at Caulfield last start. Big odds available and with good reason.

11. I’m Thunderstruck (Best Bet – $2.70) Bet @ Sportsbet

He should have won the Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes last start after getting bumped in the straight. He flashed home late for third, which was a big effort.

52kg is a luxury weight for one of the more promising runners in Australia, so we’re happy to take the $2.70.

Everything should pan out in his favour, and his odds could firm.

12. So You Assume ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet

Nothing wrong with winning three on the bounce, but there will be more pressure in this race.

Drifting odds and we’re not surprised.

13. Second Slip ($17) Bet @ Sportsbet

Carrying 52kg is ideal and he has been well-backed at odds, but we think he’s a level below these runners.

14. Embolism ($35) Bet @ Sportsbet

Finding it hard to win a race, so we’re finding it hard to include him. Save for another day.
