Gawler horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:52) Coopers Brewery Plate (1100m)
#5 – In the Navy @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
In the Navy comes off a good placing at the Pakenham trials and that bodes well in Adelaide.
The two-year-old filly by Merchant Navy has the breeding to suggest she could win on debut and the early betting support is a good sign.
She opened at $2.90 and has firmed into $2.60, so keep her safe.
Race 2. (13:27) 4 Way Fresh Produce BM72 (1100m)
#1 – Great Leveller @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s not easy to win three on the bounce, but Great Leveller is making it look easy. The four-year-old scored narrowly last start, but it was another tough effort.
The son of Stratum now owns six wins from 16 starts and he has yet to finish worse than third at Gawler.
Having experience on the track helps and with 3kg off his back, he should be tough to hold out.
Race 3. (14:02) Members of Bung Fritz BM68 (1200m)
#1 – Lady Dunmore @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Phillip Stokes lines up the four-year-old mare who owns five wins from 18 starts, so she’s always around the mark.
The daughter of Wandjina owns four of those wins over this distance and she has a win and a placing from two starts at Gawler.
Dropping in weight helps and she should go close.
Race 4. (14:37) Adelaide Star Bus Maiden (1100m)
#10 – Lockdown Sally @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lockdown Sally has had three trials to prepare for her debut and she could make a winning start.
The Will Clarken-trained daughter of Stratum Star placed in all three trials and she wasn’t asked to fully let down.
Drawing well helps and punters should expect a good effort.
Race 5. (15:12) Bung Fritz Cup BM68 (2100m)
#1 – Stealthy Lucas @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stealthy Lucas gets a much-needed 3kg claimer in the saddle and that could turn the race in his favour.
The seven-year-old is making his Gawler debut after posting seven wins from 35 starts and it’s a track that should suit.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and punters should snap up the each-way odds.
Race 6. (15:52) Dare & Johnson BM68 (1200m)
#6 – Cool Magnum @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cool Magnum is knocking on the door after back-to-back second placings and he is worth following.
The four-year-old son of Magnus was only a short margin behind the winner at Gawler last start and we like his chances of going one better.
$3.90 is a fair price from bookmakers and we wouldn’t leave him out of selections.
Race 7. (16:32) Ultra Tune/Kingsford BM76 (1500m)
#6 – Spectacle @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Spectacle makes its own luck in front and that proved the winning of the race at Murray Bridge last start.
The McEvoy-trained mare is a three-time winner, and although yet to race at Gawler, it’s a track that suits her running pattern.
Getting the inside draw makes it easier to find the front, so consider.
Race 8. (17:12) Holdfast Insurance BM60 (1500m)
#10 – Montign @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the early money has come for Montign, who scored his second career win at Gawler last time out.
The four-year-old scored by a nose in a driving finish and his turn-of-foot was impressive, so he’s worth backing.
Punters will need to hope for some luck from the back of the field, but he could wind up late and flash.
Race 9. (17:52) Thank You Pettit BM60 (1100m)
#2 – Ocean Reward @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ocean Reward needs a confidence boost and it could come on Saturday. He is only a two-time winner, but he found it too tough at Caulfield last start.
This is a more suitable target and there has been some betting support, which is a good sign. He is holding steady at $6.50 and punters should take the odds available.
