Easy To Please is easy to back

Trevor Reid

After looking an unlucky not to win on debut Easy To Please looked hard to beat second time out and he duly did so without much fuss and looks likely to follow up that maiden success by capturing Race 9, a MR 66 Handicap over 1000m at Flamingo Park today.

BACK IN FORM. All The Bids had an improved last race and if anywhere close to his peak will be hard to beat in Race 3 at Flamingo park today. Picture: Supplied

Admittedly the form of his maiden win has not really held up but it is worth noting that his conqueror (Triumvirate who runs in this race) has done well since, including another win over this course and distance.

The suspicion though is that Easy To Please has more wins in him and could start his journey through the divisions with another win. The Newton four-year-old colt gets the services of Andrew Fortune.

Triumvirate is 1.5kg better off and beat Easy To Please by 1.75 lengths in June so clearly has to be respected, especially as he appears to be at his very best over this course and distance. Trainer Corne Spies could be the one to follow on the card as I give winning chances to all of All The Bids, (Race 3) Boarding Call (Race 6) and Hawksworth (Race 8).

The Sarel von Willingh Smit yard is always one to watch and The Big Show (Race 7) looks ready to run a big race and an Eachway bet is advised.
