Monday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:30) Spot on Dry Cleaning Maiden (2100m)
#4 – Yulong Soldier @ $3.10 – Bet Now
The Lindsay Park-trained gelding has placed in all three starts to date and he’s going close to a win.
He’s a son of Galileo that is only going to get better with time. His most recent placing came over this distance and he made impressive ground in the straight.
Punters are getting better odds than expected.
Race 2. (13:00) Echuca Newsagency Maiden (1400m)
#4 – Kutayha @ $2.20 – Bet Now
Three-year-old gelding Kutayha made a good impression when running third on debut. The Chris Waller-trained runner settle too far back in the run but made good ground late.
He’s a well-bred son of Savabeel that should be able to break maidens soon and he gets every chance here.
Race 4. (14:00) Moama Bowling Club Maiden (1100m)
#8 – Flirting @ $2.35 – Bet Now
Flirting is flirting with victory after posting her fifth placing from seven starts. The Anthony Freedman-trained filly is fresh up having last raced in February.
The daughter of Medaglia D’oro has been heavily backed to win throughout the week and that’s a good sign.
We’re expecting her to be winning very shortly.
Race 7. (15:30) bet365 Odds Protector BM58 (1400m)
#9 – Hedley’s Lady @ $3.50 – Bet Now
The Patrick Payne-trained filly scored her maiden win earlier this month and she’s capable of going back-to-back.
She won by seven lengths in a commanding fashion, so she’s more than capable of winning again. Conditions are similar to that run and Billy Egan rides.
Her opening odds have been taken so consider.
Race 8. (16:00) Perricoota Station C1 Handicap (1600m)
#3 – Echo Boomer @ $2.70 – Bet Now
Echo Boomer has yet to miss a win or placing from eight stats. The Payne-trained filly owns one wins and seven placings, so she’s as consistent as they come.
The daughter of Duporth comes into this race with three consecutive second placings and we believe another win is coming.
Drawing barrier 10 won’t be an issue over this distance.
Race 9. (16:30) Independent Cranes BM58 (2100m)
#5 – High Emocean @ $2.60 – Bet Now
A win isn’t far away for High Emocean, which has featured in the placings in five of her six starts.
The Maher/Eustace-trained daughter of Ocean Park went close at Werribee last start and a repeat effort could be on the cards.
$2.60 is a fair price from bookmakers.
Race 2. (13:15) Stacks Law Firm Maiden (1400m)
#5 – Buckin’ Rippa @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Buckin’ Rippa isn’t the most consistent type running around but he has gone close on multiple occasions.
The Lane-trained three-year-old finished second at Tamworth last April and he showed good barrier speed at Wellington last start.
The odds appeal and he’s worth following.
Race 3. (13:50) Tooheys Maiden (1000m)
#2 – Montana Thunder @ $1.90 – Bet Now
Punters will have to take short odds but Montana Thunder should produce a good effort. The lightly-tried six-year-old has three placings from four starts and those came at provincial Sydney meetings.
He hasn’t raced for over a year, but his recent trial was encouraging and he has these covered on ability alone.
Watch for any positive betting moves on race day.
Race 4. (14:25) Iron Jack C1 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Cool Missile @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Cool Missile scored nicely on debut Coffs Harbour and she’s every chance of remaining unbeaten.
The Kris Lees-trained filly won by 3.3 lengths, so she has plenty of ability and that bodes well for this level of racing.
Luck will be needed from barrier 12 but her class should take her close.
