Hawkesbury horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:25) Support Our Hawkesbury C1 Plate (2000m)
#2 – Bob @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bob didn’t fire at Kembla Grange last start but he’s better than that and his recent trial was a solid bounce back.
The Mark Newnham-trained gelding finished third at the Randwick trials and that should top him off nicely for this race.
$2.45 is what we expected and he should stay around that price.
Race 2. (14:00) Thank U All Emergency Services Maiden (1100m)
#10 – Six Again @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Six Again is on debut after winning three of her four trials and we’re not surprised at the money coming.
She comes off three consecutive trial wins at Warwick Farm and Rosehill, with the most recent coming by over five lengths.
Barrier three is ideal and she could start as the odds-on favourite on Monday.
Race 3. (14:35) Help The Hawkesbury Farmers Maiden (1000m)
#4 – Gleneagles @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Gleneagles wasn’t disgraced in two career starts last preparation and he should appreciate this level of opposition.
The David Payne-trained colt ran second behind She’s All Class at Wyong, which has since performed highly against the best juveniles.
Drawing the inside is ideal and we’re expecting a big effort.
Race 4. (15:10) Thank You NSW Maiden Handicap (1400m)
#8 – Toostar @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Toostar has recorded two placings from seven starts and although yet to fully let down, she has upside.
The John Sargent-trained three-year-old ran third at Randwick last start and we expect that form to stack up nicely this season.
Money has come for her since markets opened and that’s a good sign.
Race 5. (15:50) Hawkesbury Community Recovery BM64 (1300m)
#7 – Sophomore @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
John O’Shea lines up the four-year-old mare that is searching for her third career win from 10 starts.
The well-bred daughter of So You Think comes off some solid trial efforts where she finished behind subsequent winners.
This distance might be short of her best, but we wouldn’t be overlooking the value odds available with bookmakers.
Race 6. (16:30) The Royal Richmond C1 Handicap (1500m)
#1 – Yardstick @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Yardstick brings the class and the three-year-old is getting close after consecutive placings at Newcastle and Hawkesbury.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained son of Criterion has experience racing at Hawkesbury when finishing second by a half-length last time out.
He looks close to posting his second career win and we wouldn’t overlook his chances.
Race 7. (17:10) Hawkesbury Cup Day C1 (1100m)
#4 – Ceasefire @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ceasefire comes off a tidy debut win at Tamworth where he scored by 6.3 lengths in an effortless display.
The Paul Messara-trained gelding was far too good for his opposition and although rising in class, he could be a type that goes through the grades.
Barrier 13 will make it harder, but he goes on top.
