On The Punt: Echuca racing tips, Ethan Brown and Matt Laurie team up with strong quartet

Big program at Echuca Monday with 10 races to be run on a heavy track and open markets and big fields in most events.

ECHUCA

BEST BET

CABINHO

R6 No. 3 $4.60

Drops sharply in grade and proven on rain-affected ground. Not won since June 2020 but gets his chance. Form around Hosier and Tintinwin rates highly.

NEXT BEST

COVERT

R2 No. 13 $3

Respect the three-year-old colt, on debut for Anthony and Sam Freedman yard, taking on the older horses.

BIG APPLE

R3 No. 12 $3.90

Three-year-old gelding on debut from astute Matt Laurie stable. Drawn perfectly and should handle the conditions on pedigree. No public trials so watch market moves.

VALUE BET

AGE OF INFINITY

R4 No. 1 $8

Three start maiden but faced city-performed three-year-olds last preparation and competed well. Must overcome a wide barrier but class edge puts the Contributer gelding in the picture.

MYSTERY DIAMOND

R9 No. 11 $8

Racing consistently this time in and last start success at Wodonga would do the confidence no harm. Wide alley but proven on heavy ground.

THE JOCKEY

ETHAN BROWN

Forged a successful combination with Matt Laurie, striking at 27.5 per cent last season (40 starts, 11 winners and seven minor placings). Has four rides for the stable on Monday.

WHITE WEDDING (R1 No. 13 $41), BIG APPLE (R3 No. 13 $3.90), DEEL BLASTER (R4 No. 2 $2.40), AMERICAN SAINT (R8 No. 7 $6.50) and GOLDEN FOURTH (R10 No. 6 $3.80)
