Friday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:05) Channel 10 Silver Apple (1000m)
#3 – Inequality @ $3.10 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Inequality showed ability last preparation when running second on debut at Newcastle and a repeat effort takes him close.
The son of Capitalist then ran fifth at Eagle Farm in open class, so he will find this easier off the inside draw.
Punters get value odds and we expect his odds to firm.
Race 3. (14:20) Winning Edge Presentations C1 (1400m)
#6 – Soloist @ $3.70 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Soloist has winning experience at Orange and that’s handy to have. He won two back by a narrow margin before running well enough last start.
The three-year-old son of Your Song will need some luck from the wide draw, but he has the class to overcome it.
We expect his odds to stay around the $3.70 mark.
Race 6. (16:10) The Remington Orange Sprint (1000m)
#7 – Quiet Riot @ $2.25 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Quiet Riot doesn’t have the best form line, but he comes off two trial wins at Warwick Farm and Rosehill.
The five-year-old gelding has been facing tough fields in Sydney, so he should find this more to his liking.
The early betting support is a good sign and he runs his best races fresh up.
Race 7. (16:50) Austereo Orange Gold Cup (2100m)
#1 – From the Bush @ $5.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The Williams-trained gelding has been going good races without winning, so he could cap off consistent form with a victory.
He is a six-time winner from 18 starts, so the class is there and he has excellent form on rain-affected tracks.
Barrier two is ideal and we’re happy with the each-way odds.
Race 1. (17:45) Browns Sawdust & Shavings Maiden (1600m)
#4 – Bors @ $2.05 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Bors is becoming expensive for punters, but we’re sticking with the three-year-old for one more run.
The son of Fastnet Rock has been well-backed in every start, including his three placings. Bookmakers have taken plenty of action again, which isn’t a surprise.
Getting the inside draw helps, so put him on top.
Race 2. (18:15) Victorian Jockeys’ Association Maiden (1200m)
#6 – The Hass @ $2.60 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The Hass was well-backed to win at Geelong last start and he missed by only a nose.
He sprinted late but was unable to nab Hongbao on the line, but he didn’t lose any admirers with the performance.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and punters should expect another tidy effort.
Race 5. (19:45) Vic on Course Bookmakers BM64 (1300m)
#2 – Hinto Blue @ $4.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Hinto Blue is getting close to a win after two solid efforts, including a fourth at Pakenham last time out.
The five-year-old son of Tavistock is only going to get better over longer distances and he didn’t have all favours in the run.
This race is there for the taking and drawing barrier three sees him get every chance in the run.
Race 7. (20:45) Troa Supporting Owners BM64 (2025m)
#4 – State Squad @ $3.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Jim Conlan lines up the four-year-old gelding who finished second at Sandown last time out.
The son of Lucas Cranach ended his first campaign with a win at Moe and anything close to that effort would be good enough.
Punters should take the $3.50 available.
