Hawkesbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:50) HRC Trainers Day Maiden (1100m)
#1 – Aeecee Express @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained two-year-old is unbeaten in two trials and he could make a winning debut.
He scored a win at Rosehill before putting 3.3 lengths on a field at Randwick, which was a professional display from the son of Savabeel.
His opening odds of $3.70 have been taken and punters could a shorter price on race day.
Race 2. (13:25) The Royal Richmond Hotel Maiden (1100m)
#9 – Riduna @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Riduna comes off a third placing on debut at Randwick and it came behind Ashema, which has since run well in higher grades.
She is a daughter of Fastnet Rock that finished close behind some smart types at the trials and she is another quality runner for the Waterhouse/Bott stable.
$3.90 is a fair each-way price.
Race 3. (14:00) Kearney Racing BM78 (2100m)
#2 – Relucent @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old is getting close to another win after hitting the line with power at Warwick Farm last start.
He is only a two-win gelding but he has been taking on tough fields and midweek racing at Hawkesbury should be right up his alley.
James McDonald rides and that has driven his price down.
Race 4. (14:35) Myrtle House Stables BM72 (1100m)
#2 – Majestic Shot @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Majestic Shot is unbeaten after four runs and she could continue her unbeaten run on Wednesday.
The Grand Allard-trained filly was 3.3 lengths too good for them at Gosford last start and she handled the wet track conditions with ease.
It bodes well for this run and although she faces a much harder field, she is a progressive type that could rise through the grades.
Race 5. (15:10) Claire Lever Racing BM72 (1300m)
#9 – Exoboom @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Exoboom could go boom after a terrific last campaign. The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained gelding finished second behind a smart type before rattling off consecutive wins.
He won by 6.8 lengths to exit maiden grades before producing another top effort when scoring by 5.3 lengths at Kembla Grange.
This is a harder task but he gets the inside draw and McDonald in the saddle, so expect a big effort.
Race 6. (15:45) Hawkesbury Cup Day BM72 (1300m)
#5 – I Say Hello @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Kris Lees-trained three-year-old was impressive winning at Newcastle and she’s capable of rising through the grades.
She scored only narrowly, but she had to make up a lot of ground in the straight. The daughter of Iffraaj made it two wins from three starts and she gets the services of Hugh Bowman.
$5 is well worth taking and those odds should firm on race day.
Race 7. (16:20) A.K.A Racing BM78 (1500m)
#7 – Amitto @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is available with Amitto, which hasn’t been showing her best but she’s talented on her day.
The James Cummings-trained four-year-old finished sixth behind Duais last time out, which has since won a good race at The Championships.
Barrier three is ideal and although she can be a risky bet, punters get value odds this time around.
Race 8. (16:55) Brad Widdup Racing BM72 (1100m)
#1 – Malahat @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Malahat comes off a second placing at Muswellbrook and although coming to the city, he’s capable of producing his best here.
The six-year-old is a past winner second-up and he gets the services of a 2kg claimer, taking his weight down to 59.5kg. For a winner of five races, that’s a luxury weight.
Punters get value double-figure odds and we expect to see those odds shorten on race day.
