Monday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Star Printing Services Maiden (2150m)
#10 – Flying Feedy @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Flying Feedy improved considerably when running fourth at Geelong last time out. The Matthew Cumani-trained filly finished off strongly, so the rise to 2150m looks ideal.
She is a daughter of Akeed Mofeed, so rising in distance is her best option. She doesn’t face an overly tough field here, so punters should be confident.
Barrier four helps and $2 is worth taking before it shortens.
Race 4. (14:30) Evergreen Turf Maiden (1400m)
#14 – Seacole @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters are expecting improvement from Seacole and the three-year-old should appreciate the drop in class.
The Maher/Eustace-trained daughter of Not a Single Doubt finished sixth at Moonee Valley last time out, which is an ideal form guide.
She ran third behind Lightsaber prior to that, so she should be winning at maiden level soon.
Race 5. (15:00) Sungold Milk Maiden (1400m)
#10 – Hard Questions @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hard Questions didn’t do much wrong when running fourth on debut at Hamilton and we expect a better run.
The Lindsay Smith-trained three-year-old had solid betting support when running at $4.80, so the betting move here is a good sign.
Barrier nine is awkward, but we wouldn’t leave him off our ticket.
Race 7. (16:00) Crawley’s Terang Hotel BM58 (1850m)
#6 – Dance of Thunder @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dance of Thunder owns a win and four placings from nine starts, and dropping in class should see his form turn around.
The son of Night of Thunder was only four lengths behind the winner at Moonee Valley last time out, which is an excellent form guide.
Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 2. (14:10) Over the Line Racing Maiden (1200m)
#3 – So Country @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
So Country is knocking on the door after three consecutive placings. The Melanie O’Gorman-trained gelding continues to run second, but he deserves a win.
The son of Shamexpress was a short margin behind the winner at Tamworth last start as a $1.40 chance. He sat on the pace and fought nicely to the line, which is a good sign.
Punters get much better odds this time around, so take the value.
Race 4. (15:25) Quast Quality Products Maiden (1000m)
#5 – Civil War @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Civil War drops right back in class after running at Randwick and Canterbury, so punters should expect a better effort.
The Cody Morgan-trained gelding was only 1.2 lengths behind them on debut before struggling second-up, but the level of opposition isn’t up to that standard.
Getting the inside draw helps and he has been backed in from $5 to $3.70.
Race 5. (16:05) Sixt Car Rental Tamworth C3 (1200m)
#1 – Anethole @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cody Morgan lines up the five-year-old gelding who owns two wins and five placings.
The son of Exceed and Excel hit the line impressively to just miss at Tamworth. He is a past winner on the track, so he runs his best races on this surface.
His opening quote of $2.90 has been snapped up, so take the $2.50 while it’s available.
Race 6. (16:40) Portable Horse Stables BM66 (1600m)
#4 – Fanmalia @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fanmalia is a professional four-time winner who comes off a narrow win at Scone.
The Rodney Northam-trained five-year-old is unbeaten at Tamworth and three of his wins have come at the distance.
The statistics read well and we’re happy to take the each-way odds available.
