BENDIGO Bob has one word on his mind heading into the W.S. Cox Plate meeting - redemption.
Bob is still coming to terms with Jet Away's run in last week's Caulfield Cup.
Bob's tip in the race put in a mighty performance after jockey Damien Oliver "couldn't hold him back".
Bob's been crying through his pocket all week.
Saturday is all about It's A Dundeel.
The star four-year-old is Bob's top tip in the Cox Plate.
Yes, he has a wide barrier and he's missed a run leading into the race, but Bob is adamant he's the best horse in the race.
His victory over Atlantic Jewel last start was outstanding and Bob expects a similar run in the Cox Plate.
Melbourne Cup-winner Green Moon and Sydney galloper Foreteller are Bob's value selections in the race.
If the pace is on early, both of these horses will be storming home at the finish.
Bob's selections for the other events:
BEST BET - He's up in class, but RICH JACK in race three looks a very smart sprinter in the making. He'll go forward from gate 10 and put himself in the firing line. The $7 fixed odds is appealing.
VALUE BET - LORD OF BRAZIL is going well for Darren Weir and race eight the Crystal Mile looks a great race for him. He loves the Valley and his jockey Brad Rawiller is flying.
OMEN BET - It's an obvious one - short-rpiced favourite Not Listenin'tome in the Telstra Phonewords Stakes.
