Kalgoorlie Cup Day horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:13) Tom Sayers Memorial Handicap (1760m)
#2 – Cuban Twist – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cuban Twist is gunning for her fourth consecutive win and five wins from her last six starts.
The Luciani-trained mare hasn’t raced for almost two months, but she goes well fresh up and her trial form has been good.
She is unbeaten in four starts at Kalgoorlie and that bodes well for another top effort.
Race 2. (12:52) MCE Handicap (2100m)
#3 – Frosty Heart – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old gelding has looked good winning his last two starts and he has every chance to take this out.
He was too good for them at Northam two back when winning by three lengths and he backed that up with a half-length win at York.
It is excellent form heading into this race and punters should be confident.
Race 3. (13:32) Suez Maiden (1100m)
#7 – Brave Dream – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brave Dream didn’t get much luck when beaten as the favourite last time out at Belmont, but expect better here.
The four-year-old mare now owns two starts without much going her way, and given she’s from the Durrant stable, expect improvement.
Punters will likely have to take short odds for Brave Dream.
Race 4. (14:12) LD Total Handicap (1100m)
#8 – Some Sort – Bet @ Sportsbet
Some Sort hasn’t been seen since running ninth at Ascot in February but he has since won a trial at Lark Hill.
The Durrant-trained four-year-old won that trial by two lengths and he has the class to overcome this field. He owns three wins from nine starts and carrying a light weight is ideal.
Watch for any market movement on race day.
Race 5. (14:52) Neo Metals Handicap (1300m)
#4 – Carabinier – Bet @ Sportsbet
It shouldn’t have too much trouble coping with this class after scoring at Belmont fresh up.
The Jordan-trained four-year-old won by a nose against a capable field and the three-time winner could add to his record.
Drawing barrier seven should give him a nice drag into the race, so keep him safe.
Race 6. (15:30) Boulder Handicap (1600m)
#2 – Sliced Bread – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding looked good when winning at Kalgoorlie last start and back-to-back wins could be in the offing.
He won by 1.8 lengths at his first attempt on this track, so it bodes well for another good run. He should get a good run off the inside barrier with Jade McNaught in the saddle.
Punters could get value odds for Sliced Bread.
Race 7. (16:10) Westspeed Platinum 0MW (1400m)
#3 – Fiery Water – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fiery Water could sink them again after winning by a half-length at Belmont last time out. The four-year-old is a two-time winner from only four starts, so there is plenty to like about his record.
Handling this field shouldn’t be a problem and the son of Playing God has more upside than most in this race.
He should settle into an ideal position and give punters a good sight.
Race 8. (16:45) Kalgoorlie Cup (2200m)
#1 – Come Play With Me @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Come Play With Me has experience facing tough fields in Melbourne and Sydney, so that form could come calling here.
The Adam Durrant-trained runner had a stint with Chris Waller but is now back in the west. He owns four wins at this distance and he made solid ground last time out.
His experience could be enough to get the job done.
Race 9. (17:25) Coastal Midwest Transport Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Manhattan Money – Bet @ Sportsbet
Manhattan Money has been making money for connections after posting five wins and seven placings from 15 starts.
The five-year-old mare owns all five wins at Kalgoorlie and the track specialist looks set to add another win to her record.
Drawing wide doesn’t help but she only needs a touch of luck to win.
