Gawler horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:01) Tab BM68 (1200m)
#2 – Poysed to Rein @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the early money has come for Poysed to Rein, which scored fresh up at Morphettville and she could get back to that form.
The daughter of Sepoy followed it up with a fourth at Flemington and having that exposure to higher level racing is ideal.
Barrier five is ideal and punters get fair odds.
Race 2. (12:36) Sanders Fodder Maiden (1100m)
#5 – Apache Star @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Phillip Stokes-trained gelding started his career in Melbourne when running second on debut at Kilmore.
He followed it with a ninth at Moonee Valley before switching stables and coming to the south. That form stacks up well for maiden level and we’re not surprised at the odds.
He opened at $5 and his current odds should continue to firm.
Race 3. (13:11) Adelaide Plains Bloodstock BM76 (1500m)
#6 – Icecrusher @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Icecrusher has been crushing the opposition her last two starts and she’s capable of stringing three wins together.
The six-year-old mare comes off a 1.5-length win at Morphettville and the nine-time winner has yet to run poorly at Gawler.
Dropping to 55.5kg suits and we like the each-way odds.
Race 4. (13:46) Kingsford Hotel BM62 (1100m)
#2 – Taunting @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We are confident with Taunting, which comes off a 2.3-length maiden win at Morphettville.
The two-year-old son of Brazen Beau scored easily on the rain-affected track and conditions are expected to be slightly better time this around.
There has been early market confidence and that’s not a surprise.
Race 5. (14:26) GJ Civil BM62 (1100m)
#10 – Miss Mucinni @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
She got the job done nicely on debut at Murray Bridge by 2.3 lengths before spelling, which is often a good sign.
The three-year-old daughter of So You Think showed professionalism in the win and she should get all favours off barrier four.
The $3.90 could firm to around $2.50 on race day.
Race 6. (15:06) Terrace Function Centre BM68 (1200m)
#1 – Mayan @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mayan is a two-race winner that scored at Morphettville prior to heading out for a spell. The McEvoy-trained gelding goes well fresh up and this level of racing won’t hold him long.
The former Victorian gets the services of Barend Vorster and his odds have stayed rock-steady at $4, which is ideal.
Take the each-way odds available.
Race 7. (15:46) Coopers Brewery Handicap (1100m)
#10 – Maha @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Class and potential is with Maha, which comes off racing against slick customers in Melbourne. She finished fourth behind Free to Move last start and she should be too slick for them here.
The three-year-old owns two wins from nine starts and carrying 54kg makes her tough to beat.
We’re surprised she’s paying $3.10, so expect those odds to shorten considerably.
Race 8. (16:21) Gawler Equine Pool BM60 (1500m)
#1 – Tibetan @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Tibetan, which kicked off this campaign with a third placing at Morphettville and we like that form.
The Michael Hickmott-trained is unbeaten at Gawler and he has excellent second-up form, so punters shouldn’t expect a drop-off in form.
Barrier 12 hurts, but he should roll forward and take some catching.
Race 9. (17:00) Holdfast Insurance BM76 (2100m)
#1 – Not Usual Glorious @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Not Usual Glorious is shooting for five consecutive wins and the former Kiwi looks the goods again.
The four-year-old gelding now owns six wins from 12 starts and he comes off a 2.8-length victory, which is a good form guide.
Punters have smashed his early odds, so take the $2.10 available.
