Friday horse racing tips


Race 1. (15:00) Eynesbury Golf Maiden (1000m)

#2 – Elite Icon @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Strong money has come for Elite Icon, who has shown excellent speed in winning two jumpouts.

The McEvoy-trained three-year-old is bred for speed and the $160,000 purchase could make a winning start to her career.

She opened at $3.60 and those odds have been snapped up, so expect more betting moves on race day.

Race 4. (16:30) Yum Sing House Sprint C1 (1000m)

#6 – Red Hawk @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Red Hawk made a winning debut at Ballarat and it couldn’t have come more impressively.

The McEvoy-trained three-year-old won by six lengths as a $1.45 chance, so the hype was strong from the outset.

The son of Deep Field has been primed with a recent jumpout win at Terang and getting the inside draw should see him tough to beat down the straight.

Race 6. (17:30) Silverpoint Homes Sprint BM70 (1000m)

#5 – The Running Man @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get excellent value with The Running Man, who owns five wins and six placings throughout his career.

The six-year-old son of Zoustar scored all five wins over this distance, and yet to win at Flemington, he should be better for the run under his belt.

Barrier 11 down the straight isn’t a negative and the $7 should firm on race day.

Race 7. (18:00) Tick Homes Dash 0MW (1200m)

#3 – Joltin’ Joe @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

There is nothing wrong with the form of Joltin’ Joe, who won at Werribee three starts back before finishing second at Flemington and Moonee Valley.

His effort at Flemington came as a $51 chance, so to run a length behind the winner was a tidy effort.

He gets the inside draw and we like his chances at value odds.


Race 1. (18:15) Vinery Maiden Handicap (1250m)

#2 – Solvere @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

It took a good horse to beat Solvere last time out and we think the three-year-old can go one better.

The Anthony Cummings-trained son of Rubick finished a length behind former Kiwi Sneaky Shark and we love that form heading forward.

We’re surprised by the $3.90, but we’ll take it.

Race 2. (18:45) Buy Better at Inglis Maiden (1250m)

#7 – Ruinart @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Ruinart faced tough fields to start her career but she should enjoy this level of racing on Friday night.

The three-year-old filly finished eighth on debut before running third behind Invincible Vision at Wyong last time out.

Her recent trials have been solid and this is her best chance to get off the mark.

Race 3. (19:15) Precise Fire BM72 (1250m)

#7 – Jal Lei @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Jal Lei comes off consecutive wins at Kembla Grange and Randwick. The three-year-old filly won by 1.5 lengths last start and it came against a smart field.

John O’Shea has a smart filly on his hands and that has been reflected in betting markets. She is paying $1.95, so the expectations are high.

Barrier five is ideal and we’re prepared to take the odds.

Race 6. (20:45) Wakeling Kia Evening Star BM72 (1100m)

#8 – Eye See Things @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Eye See Things runs her best races fresh up and the early betting support is a good sign.

The John Thompson-trained daughter of Star Witness has yet to race at Canterbury, but she should handle the track nicely.

Getting the inside draw with only 55.5kg on her back should see her get some of the prize.
