Trentham racing tips

Race 1. (10:05) Tab Odds Surge Maiden (1400m)

#1 – Knights Realm @ $4.00

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Knights Realm improved his form nicely when running second at Woodville fresh up.

The four-year-old gelding is lightly tried after only three starts, and rising to 1400m looks right up his alley for this race.

Punters get each-way odds, which are worth taking in the opener.

Race 2. (10:39) Happy 80th Birthday Garry Chittick Handicap (1100m)

#1 – Babylon Berlin @ $1.70

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Babylon Berlin is the class runner of the field with eight wins from 27 starts, and her recent trial win was a good sign.

The Group 1 placegetter has a sizable advantage over this field, and she gets some weight off her back to help.

Take the short odds and include her in multis.

Race 4. (11:44) Waterforce Maiden (1600m)

#8 – Dresse’ Par Joli @ $3.10

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

The four-year-old mare is getting close to posting a breakthrough win after two second placings from three starts.

She comes off a placing at Otaki in a strong maiden race, and although barrier 13 makes it hard, they’re likely to come wide in the straight.

She won’t take long to exit maiden grades.

Race 5. (12:18) AB Equipment & Speirs Finance BM75 (1400m)

#3 – Belle’s Echo @ $3.30

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Money is with Belle’s Echo, who is getting awfully close to posting an overdue win.

The Lisa Latta-trained mare comes off three consecutive placings, so she’s right around the mark and getting close to winning.

There are no superstars in this field, and she should take advantage.

Te Rapa racing tips

Race 1. (10:20) KPMG 3YO (1100m)

#2 – Ima Brazen One @ $3.00

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Ima Brazen One owns two wins from three starts, so the filly has every chance to win here.

The three-year-old filly by Brazen Beau won at Otaki last start by 3.3 lengths, so the class is there.

Conditions should suit her well enough, so take the current odds.

Race 2. (10:55) Direct Fats & Oils Maiden (1200m)

#12 – Confetti @ $3.40

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Punters will be celebrating if Confetti gets the job done in a fresh up state on Saturday.

The three-year-old daughter of Ocean Park ran fourth at Tauranga before spelling, and the form has stacked up beautifully out of that race.

She only needs luck from the wide barrier to win.

Race 3. (11:28) Champion Freight BM65 (1300m)

#6 – Acquarello @ $3.90

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Acquarello is nearing a win after finishing second at Te Rapa last start, so having form on the track is a bonus.

The four-year-old mare wasn’t far behind Wild West, which is a nice sprinting type, so she is good enough to beat this easier field.

We’re happy to include her in our picks at the odds.

Race 5. (12:38) Dunstan Horsefeeds Handicap (1300m)

#3 – Turn the Ace @ $4.00

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Turn the Ace is an eight-time winner who was too good for them at Te Rapa last time out.

That form bodes well for Saturday’s race, and she’s an incredible six-time winner at Te Rapa, which is hard to ignore.

Opie Bosson rides, adding to our confidence.
