Scone racing tips

Race 2. (14:10) Scone RSL Maiden (1000m)

#5 – Tulle @ $3.80

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Tulle needs luck from the wide draw, but she showed good form when placing in three starts last preparation.

The four-year-old daughter of Sepoy comes off a placing at Kembla Grange, and she scored a trial win at Warwick Farm.

Take the each-way odds available.

Race 3. (14:45) Widden C1 Handicap (1600m)

#1 – Wembanyama @ $2.45

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Wembanyama has been right the mark throughout his career, including a win at Kembla Grange.

The three-year-old gelding by Dundeel finished second behind Magnatear at Randwick last time out, which was a tidy effort.

He carries a big weight, but we’re happy to include him in selections.

Race 6. (14:30) Lion C2 Handicap (1300m)

#2 – Code in Time @ $7.50

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Code in Time has been in excellent form this preparation, including two wins and a last-start second placing.

The three-year-old gelding by Encryption won both starts at Canberra, and he should enjoy racing at Scone for the first time.

The Neasham stable is firing, so include him.

Race 8. (15:45) Darley Scone Cup (1600m)

#2 – Nugget @ $4.60

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Nugget is getting close to a big winning effort, and we will keep backing him until he wins.

He finished fourth in heavy conditions at Randwick behind Celestial Legend last start, and Group 1 form bodes well.

Punters get each-way odds, which is a great price for a quality thoroughbred.

Cranbourne racing tips

Race 1. (17:15) Rosemont Stud Maiden (1200m)

#2 – Fontaine Rouge @ $1.80

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Fontaine Rouge is an expensive sales purchase, and the $500,000 buy could make a winning start.

The three-year-old filly by Justify won a jumpout at Cranbourne, and that adds to her appeal on Friday night.

Jamie Kah rides from an inside barrier, so include.

Race 3. (18:15) Chris Newman Electrics Maiden (1600m)

#2 – Fine Future @ $3.10

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Fine Future owns two third placings from two starts, and it won’t take him long to break maidens.

The three-year-old gelding by Fine Needle is bred to be better than average, and having two runs under his belt helps.

Getting $3.10 is a fair price from bookmakers, and those odds could firm.

Race 5. (19:15) BOQ Frankston C1 (1000m)

#1 – Go To Hollywood @ $3.30

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Go To Hollywood won well fresh up last preparation, and he could hit the ground running again.

The four-year-old son of Alpine Eagle ran second last time out at Pakenham, and he has experience at Cranbourne.

He’s good enough to beat this field, so take the shortening odds.

Race 7. (20:15) Freeway Ford BM58 (1500m)

#1 – Co Co Van Winkle @ $2.60

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Check odds

Co Co Van Winkle has been in work for some time, but with two wins from his last five starts, he’s running well.

The four-year-old mare owns two wins and six placings from 13 starts, and getting 2kg off his back adds to his appeal.

The odds are shorter than we expected, but he’s the one to beat.

All odds are with Picklebet Use Code: 'GOBET'
