Coonamble Race 3 looks one of those races where we can bet with a good degree of confidence.
Clear cut top rated contender here is the Equiano 4yo gelding King Solomon who broke through over this trip 3 starts ago at Tamworth shedding its maiden tag in fairly impressive fashion making all to win by 1.2l for a $30K tag.
He then franked that form last time out when trying to do it all on the front end again at Scone when 3rd beaten only 1.1l, tough front end performance in a clearly much stronger race than this.
King Solomon goes around as a 2.70 chance early fixed odds which is about the rtight price although would be a lot happier getting closer to if not 3.00.
One that may surpriose at big odds which is well worth backing in support on an each way basis is The Debater which has been missed by odds makers and goes around as a 21.0 / 6.0 realistic each way knockout chance.
The Debater is placed 4 of 11 in its short career for the astute Rodney Northam yard, go on its effort 3 runs back 2nd up at Tamworth when flashing big closing pars over 1200m for a $40K tag splitting Avalady and Swift Charger, drops 2.5kg on that run and much better suited this trip, also first time trying 1600m here.
So back King Solomon as the clear top elect with good confidence as a 2.70 chance, happy to wait for slightly better (around 3.00) as the market is set around 140% early so there is a lot of movement in it yet and also nibble each way at The Debater on the 21.0 / 6.0 line.
