Hawkesbury horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:25) Starr Partners Richmond Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Feel The Knight @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Feel The Knight is a three-time winner that has been running well in tough races at Randwick. He ran second at Randwick last start behind Belluci Babe, which is strong form.
A lack of recent winning form isn’t a concern and punters should be confident of his chances on Wednesday.
$3.30 is a fair price for a proven type.
Race 2. (14:00) Fowler Civil Contracting Maiden (1300m)
#2 – Brooks Battle @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The John O’Shea-trained filly looked solid when running fifth on debut at Randwick and we’re expecting that form to hold up.
She has since run two excellent trials at Randwick and she should be able to handle these track conditions.
Barrier three is ideal and punters should expect a top showing.
Race 3. (14:35) Atkinson Turner Maiden (1300m)
#2 – Jesse James @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two runs from Jesse James have been good and the former Kiwi has plenty of upside in Australia.
He is a son of Reliable Man that enters with a trial win at Randwick under his belt. That performance should see him go close and there is betting support.
Put him into your selections at an each-way quote.
Race 4. (15:10) Blakes Marine BM64 (1600m)
#5 – Buba @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Buba hit the line well enough when third last start to warrant attention in this race. The four-year-old mare by Adelaide was only three lengths behind Snippy Fox, which is solid form.
She owns two wins from eight starts, so there is plenty of ability there. If she is anywhere near her best, she shouldn’t have many problems at this level.
Race 5. (15:45) Irresistible Pools & Spas C1 (1100m)
#5 – Sahra @ $1.75 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The form of Sahra is incredible for this race and we are confident of her chances. She won on debut at Kembla Grange by 3.3 lengths before running second behind North Pacific.
That is group-level form and dropping back to midweek level is only going to help her chances. She should be able to put a few lengths on this field and punters have cottoned on.
Her opening odds of $2.10 didn’t last long.
Race 6. (16:20) Evergreen Turf Maiden (1100m)
#6 – Ayemgee @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ayemgee finished a length behind the winner on debut at Kilmore and coming to Sydney shouldn’t pose any problems.
The daughter of Deep Field is coming off a trial placing at Rosehill and that should have her in fit condition for this race.
Money is coming and that isn’t surprising, so put her on top of selections.
Race 7. (16:55) Lander Toyota Ladies Day Cup (1600m)
#5 – Archedemus @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Archedemus isn’t winning as often as punters would like but he is a classy type at best, so consider at the odds.
The Hawkes-trained seven-year-old is a seven-time winner and he won his only start on this track. He is much better than what he showed last start, so stick with him at the each-way quote.
Race 8. (17:30) Blacktown Workers Club BM64 (1300m)
#5 – Fastconi @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fastconi scored a win at Newcastle two starts back and although he didn’t follow it up at Randwick, there was merit in that performance.
The Chris Waller-trained colt finished fourth behind Fortune Seeker and there is plenty to like about that form going forward.
Tommy Berry rides and he is riding in good form.
Race 9. (18:05) Elite Sand & Soil BM68 (2000m)
#1 – Unamerican @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Unamerican is a nice type in the making that has won his last two starts. The Freedman-trained gelding won both starts at Newcastle and the latest came easily by three lengths.
We think he will progress through the grades nicely this season and it’s good to see early market confidence come his way.
