Week 4 NFL Picks & Underwood Stakes

Mahomes
The Patrick Mahomes show rolls into the Lions Den this week.

Philadelphia upstaged Green Bay in Packerland to open a round of NFL matches where I like a few of the underdogs.

It’s also Underwood Stakes Day to complete three straight days of Group 1 racing across Sydney and Melbourne.

Staying star Homesman destroyed his rivals last start and he enters the Underwood Stakes as a hot favourite.

UNDERWOOD STAKES DAY
The Group 1 betting is dominated by Williams runner, Homesman, who was dominant last start in the Feehan at Moonee Valley over a mile. Stepping up to 1800m should suit him even more but the rivals are circling. It’s not the deepest race I’ve seen but last start Group 1-winner Gatting, Kiwi The Chosen One and mare Kenedna deserve respect and consideration.
Old warrior Hartnell is well in the market and yet to run a poor race this campaign however weight-for-age Group 1 wins may be just beyond him at start 55.

Selections;
(8) Homesman $2.30
(1) Hartnell $5
(12) The Chosen One $10
(13) Kenedna $13

In the Group 2 Thousand Guineas Prelude Godolphin trio Lyre, Tenley and Flit dominate the market. Sydneysider Missle Mantra could upstage the Blue Army whilst Snapdancer and Acting could feature and McEvoy filly She Shao Fly could be the absolute blowout.

Selections;
(1) Lyre $7
(2) Tenley $5
(3) Flit 3.20
(5) She Shao Fly (5) $71

Caulfield Guineas Prelude
(3) Dalasan $2
(10) Hilo $18
(4) Super Seth $12
(17) Groundswell $18

Testa Rossa Stakes
(1) Spirit of Valor $23
(11) Haunted $7.50
(15) Special Reward $4
(9) Zoustyle $4
