On The Punt: Best bets for Kyneton races, apprentice jockey Tayla Childs hoping to get a win aboard Sunflare

KYNETON

BEST BET

SUNFLARE

R5 No. 2 $2.60

Won two back at Kilmore then only just beaten last start at the same track. Will appreciate Tayla Childs‘ three-kilogram claim and drawn to win.

NEXT BEST

GLAMDAM

R3 No. 12 $2.60

Bursting to win a race, having placed in four of six career starts, but the barrier is a concern. Looks to have a class edge on some of these and benefits from experienced rider in the saddle.

NORBU

R7 No. 8 $4.40

Won nicely on debut last year then found step up in grade a bit sharp. Resumes after a decent break and kept safe in the market.

VALUE BET

RELIABLE LOVIN’

Tailed off last at Group 2 level behind Cherry Tortoni last spring but to even be in a race of that calibre suggests the stable has high hopes for the Reliable Man colt. Bred to relish jump to 1887m and rain-affected ground. Drawn well and has star apprentice Laura Lafferty in the saddle.

THE JOCKEY

TAYLA CHILDS

Continuity has been hard for the injury-plagued apprentice but a nice book at Kyneton could do the confidence a world of good.

ANAHERA (R4 No. 5 $23), SUNFLARE (R5 No. 2 $2.60), SEERESS (R6 No. 9 $5) and GIMME THE GOSS (R7 No. 4 $7.50)
