Kembla Grange horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Canadian Club BM72 (1500m)
#5 – Secretly Awesome – Bet @ Sportsbet
Secretly Awesome ended his last campaign with back-to-back wins and he wasn’t far away when fifth fresh up.
The son of Snitzel looks to have plenty of ability and although facing some progressive types, he has a bright future.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and he could pay each-way odds with bookies.
Race 2. (13:35) Tab Highway Handicap C3 (1600m)
#5 – Activation – Bet @ Sportsbet
Activation has scored consecutive wins coming into this race and he deserves a shot at this field.
Punters should have the four-year-old at generous odds, following wins at Dubbo and Warren. There is more depth to this field but his last two wins have come in style.
He could escape the bookmakers’ sights in the Highway.
Race 3. (14:10) Marty & Crammy BM78 (2000m)
#2 – Stockman – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters have been burned by Stockman this season but the Joe Pride-trained gelding has a win coming.
The well-bred son of Tavistock finished second at Rosehill his last two starts, but he hasn’t had all favours throughout the run.
Luck will be needed from barrier 12, but he meets an even field and he could capitalise on facing this opposition.
Race 4. (14:45) Evergreen Turf Australia BM78 (1000m)
#7 – Destination – Bet @ Sportsbet
Destination fought on bravely at Randwick last start and there is less depth to this field, so he could take advantage.
The James Cummings-trained colt finished fourth behind the likes of The Bopper and Tommy Gold, and that form has stacked up nicely since.
He is unbeaten in two starts at Kembla Grange and that warrants attention.
Race 5. (15:25) Abax Contracting BM78 (1200m)
#1 – Pandemic – Bet @ Sportsbet
The aptly-named gelding showed good pace behind Villami last start and he has since been primed with a trial win at Warwick Farm.
He is a professional three-time winner from eight starts and getting the 2kg off his back from Tom Sherry is ideal.
Expect another tidy effort on Saturday.
Race 6. (16:05) Traffic Logistics BM78 (1200m)
#9 – Macroura – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace team lines up the talented three-year-old filly, which wasn’t disgraced last time out.
She didn’t quite handle the heavy track conditions when running third behind Switched, but it was a nice hit-out for this contest.
With three wins from five starts, there is still plenty left in the bank for the well-related type.
Race 8. (17:25) Polytrack BM88 (1600m)
#9 – Vegas Jewel – Bet @ Sportsbet
Vegas Jewel is finding it tough to win races but the four-year-old mare has been competing against tough opposition.
She finished third behind the likes of Accountability and Stockman last start, so punters should follow form from earlier in the day.
Drawing barrier two with only 54.5kg on her back is ideal and we are expecting another solid effort on Saturday.
Race 9. (18:00) PFD Food Services BM78 (1400m)
#4 – Misteed – Bet @ Sportsbet
Misteed got back to winning form when scoring at Rosehill and she is capable of producing the goods again.
The Snowden-trained mare has finished in the money in 10 of her 25 starts, which is a good record and punters have cashed in.
It is another good ride for Tom Sherry and he could get the job done.
