How Gator got on
Each way punters would have been happy with David Gately's efforts last week.
That's because he picked up a suite of placings across both tracks, and came within a whisker of finishing the day with a monster profit.
It wasn't to be for Gator though unfortunately, however his recent form still ranks him amongst the best tipsters in the country. If you had followed his staking plan over the past seven Saturdays, you would have averaged 16% profit on turnover.
His best track last Saturday was at Rosehill, where he found got punters out of gaol late in the day.
Get your hands on David's Saturday racing package for this weekend, including his exclusive staking plan here.
To see how he went in Sydney last week, read on.
David Gately's horse racing tips review at Rosheill 28th August 2019
Race 1: #9 Humbolt Current (Medium)
Followers of this horse must have lost patience when he placed once again last Saturday.
While he's always around the money, he just doesn't quite have that winning turn of foot.
Race 2: #5 Harbouring (Low)
Another 3rd place for Gator here.
Harbouring ran a solid race to pay $2 for the place.
Race 3: #6 Pandemic (High)
After finishing closely behind some good horses in Funstar and Yao Dash, Gator was confident this Godolphin runner would get it done.
But it was more of the same with another 3rd-placed finish.
Standout continued his impressive form to get the win.
Race 4: #3 Gem Song (High) - Best Bet
Gator's best bet for the day was on Gem Song in the Group 2 Shannon Stakes.
This classy runner looked set to claim the win inside the final furlong.
That was until Mister Sea Wolf came with an inside run to produce a mini-boilover.
Gem Song came 2nd.
Race 5: #5 Enticing Star (Medium)
This favourite just got too far back in the run and couldn't make up the ground.
She was the first of Gately's tips to miss a placing.
Race 6: #8 Scarlet Dream (Medium)
Race 7: #5 Exceedance (Medium)
In the talent-rich Golden Rose, Gator went with Exceedance.
While he ran a good race, he wasn't a match for Bivouac.
Exceedance finished 3rd.
Race 8: #2 Shadow Hero (Medium)
Gator left it late but he finally got the ball rolling when Shadow Hero put them to the sword in the penultimate race on the card.
Shadow Hero was given the perfect ride by Joshua Par, who snagged him back along the rail, before weaving him through the field and giving him the room to let down with a big run.
This talented gelding won by a big margin, and paid a handy $3.10 on the tote.
Race 9: #4 Ranier (Medium)
In the "Get Out Stakes," Gator got his followers out of a spot of bother.
That's because his best value bet of the day saluted.
James McDonald timed his run to perfection, as this Godolphin runner speared through for the win.
He paid a juicy $7.
