Newmarket Handicap Form Guide & Tips

1. Zoutori ($21) Bet @ Sportsbet

Zoutori is always tough to beat but that wasn’t an ideal performance last time out. More would be needed if he was to figure in the finish.

2. Elite Street ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet

An enigmatic type that either wins or runs down the track. Talented but we’re not sure if he’s good enough to win at this level.

$27 is about where we priced him.

3. Imaging ($15) Bet @ Sportsbet

A big effort to finish second last start and that form bodes well. He shouldn’t be overlooked at the value odds and he enters trifecta and first-four calculations.

5. Celebrity Queen (Best Each Way – $13) Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get value odds for a mare that scored a dead-heat win at Caulfield last time out. First start on this track, but running down the straight could help.

A four-time winner at this distance and $13 is well worth taking.

6. Dalasan ($26) Bet @ Sportsbet

Not quite the same horse he used to be but the talent is there. Barrier 13 is ideal down the straight and he could improve on recent form.

$26 is a fair price and it could add value at those odds.

7. Flit (Best Roughie – $27) Bet @ Sportsbet

Always in the mix and drawing wide down the straight isn’t the worst thing in the world.

A four-time winner from 17 starts and with Damien Oliver in the saddle, the $27 with bookmakers is well worth taking.

8. Standout ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet

Comes off a disappointing run and he hasn’t shown up this season. He meets a tough sprinting field and it would be a sizable upset.

9. Bold Star ($61) Bet @ Sportsbet

Another runner coming off a tough effort and although he owns two wins on this track, he’s unlikely to add a third here.

54kg on the back helps and punters get big odds, but we wouldn’t be adding him into selections.

10. Brooklyn Hustle ($20) Bet @ Sportsbet

Dangerous on its day and she will likely settle back in the run and flash home late. The lighter weight helps and if things pan out well, she could fly home.

Always worth including into selections.

11. Halvorsen ($101) Bet @ Sportsbet

Triple-figure odds available and that’s reflective of his efforts this preparation. He hasn’t come of age this time around, so wait for something easier.

12. Indian Pacific ($27) Bet @ Sportsbet

A nice type that showed plenty of ability in Perth. Comes off a solid second placing at Flemington and that was a nice first-up effort in Melbourne.

Punters get value odds and the weight helps.

13. Prophet’s Thumb ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet

A big winner two back but she was unable to follow it up last time out. Talented but this could be too tough.

14. September Run (Best Bet – $2.15) Bet @ Sportsbet

The best horse in the field and she comes off a gutsy effort for second behind Nature Strip in the Lightning Stakes.

That was a top-quality effort behind a world class sprinter, so we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely for this race.

$2.15 is short, but she could justify those odds.

15. Sirius Suspect ($13) Bet @ Sportsbet

Comes off back-to-back wins and although in easier grades, those wins have to be respected.

Drawn ideally down the straight and we couldn’t overlook his chances.

16. Amish Boy ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet

Finding it tough to win but it has been knocking on the door after consecutive placings.

Drawing the rails isn’t ideal but he gets in with only 52kg on his back.

17. Prague ($46) Bet @ Sportsbet

Never too far away from the mark but this is a tough race and he looks well-held.

18. Swats That ($7) Bet @ Sportsbet

Third behind Nature Strip and September Run last start. On the ballot, so unlikely to run, but a serious chance if she makes the field.
