We have identified some more good double figure odds value in Coonamble Race 5 to continue the theme of value plus from that track on Monday.
Fire Flight is 3rd up from a spell on the back of a below par effort at Mudgee last time out rising in trip here to a more suitable 1300m and nearing peak fitness.
1st up from a spell the 4yo Northern Meteor battled on well despite being beaten 3.3l by Eradicator into 2nd over 1100m at Narromine. The form coming out of that race is deceivingly good with 3rd home winning next start and some very big gaps back through the field further back.
That effort really suggested she is set for a good prep and a potential new career peak and 3rd up could well produce that level here today.
Her best effort was a hard closing 2nd to Secret Pedrille over 1200m at Tamworth back in June 17 and if she hits that level here she will prove very hard to hold out. Every chance she could eclipse that performance for a new peak which makes her very hard to beat under those circumstances.
She draws well in barrier 5 and can race close or back worse than midfield although we expect her to in the first 4 or 5 under a likely moderate tempo from the good gate, she will get every chance.
Fire Flight is a half sister to the potentially above average Intothelimelight (Your Song) who is a winner 2 of 5 so far, no other siblings have seen the track yet.
She goes around at the luxury odds of 11.0 / 3.5 and can be backed each way with some degree of confidence.
