Running as Doomben Race 8 at 4:36pm (AEST), this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1350m) runs at its capacity 16 starters including Rageese and Sir Bacchus installed as equal $4 favourites.

Early money has come in for the in-form Chris Waller-trained Sebring grey Sir Bacchus who is now at the same price as the easing Darren Weir-trained Rageese to win on Saturday, both youngsters coming off back-to-back wins.

Sir Bacchus has won his last two on the trot at Rosehill over 1200m carrying more than the 57kg he has on his back at set weights on Saturday, while Rageese has a wide alley to overcome this weekend.

Two back the son of Street Cry won over 1300m at Sandown-Hillside before traveling to Adelaide on April 30 to score a runaway 4.2 length win in the Listed Nitschke Stakes (1400m).

So will one of the two top fancies get the job done for the punters or is the value further down the Fred Best Classic betting markets this Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival?

1st

#3 Rageese ($4)

Has a wide alley but think the last start Morphettville win of this Weir-trained colt has him as a good thing in this. He won over 1400m running away as the odds-on favourite and is a better price over the shorter distance here. Is a slight rise in class but from six starts over the distance he boasts three wins and a second, is a Group 1 performer and is ticking plenty of boxes.

2nd

#1 Rangipo ($10)

New Zealand raider drawn a treat in barrier five, has his regular Kiwi raider Vinnie Colgan travelling for the ride. Has won his past three at home on the trot in Group company, the latest being a gutsy effort in the Group 1 NZ Derby (2400m). Trainer Tony Pike doesn’t rate the son of Stryker as a genuine stayer, so believes first-up he can handle the 1350m, the horse two-from-two over the distance.

3rd

#2 Takedown ($7.50)

Gary Moore’s Stratum gelding has the widest drawn of the field, but the class to overcome. Needs the right run from jockey Tim Clark, but if he gets that he’s a big hope. Was third in the Group 2 Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) in Sydney behind Chris Waller’s Group 1 winner and subsequent BTC Cup third placegetting Japonisme two back before a win in the Group 3 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m) last time out.
