Race 5 at Hawkesbury on Tuesday looks the perfect spot for the well credentialled Exceed And Excel filly Invictus Salute to break her maiden tag. She gets blinkers 1st time on the back of producing blacktype quality form on the trial track. As a 2.80 chance in early fixed odds markets she can be backed with good confidence. We have her clear top rated at 2.50. She is a #BankerBet and she should be winning with a bit to spare.
Hawkesbury R5 #11 Invictus Salute 2.80 – bard to deny the chances of the very well bred Exceed And Excel filly from the astute Mark Newnham yard here, Invictus Salute comes into this race on the back of a 3l trial win at Warwick Farm, trialed in blinkers for the 1st time that day and gets 1st time blinkers here, that trial win was on the back of failing on debut behind Pure Elation who then came out and won the G2 Percy Sykes Stakes (Snowden yard have huge opinion of Pure Elation), genuine excuses on debut in that race after a tough on speed trip, hence taken back to trials with blinkers applied, form out of that 3l trial win suggests well up to stakes company, trial form prior to debut including a 1l win over Enbihaar who prior had annexed the G2 Blue Diamond Prelude also suggests good quality stakes level on the make, gets into a decent maiden for the tag on offer but as a potential stakes quality horse looks clearly the best credentialed here, goes around as a 2.80 chance in early fixed odds markets, clear cut top rated at 2.50 and on that basis qualifies as a Win Banker Bet.
