Sale horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:05) Laurels Function Centre Maiden (1105m)
#8 – Arroance @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Mark Webb-trained three-year-old is getting close to a win after posting consecutive placings.
She is a well-bred runner that comes off a second placing at Cranbourne. Prior to that she finished third on this track, so having track experience is a bonus.
Barrier three suits and we’re not surprised at the odds.
Race 2. (13:40) Growmaster Sale Maiden (1205m)
#8 – Sweet Sixteen @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sweet Sixteen started her career with three consecutive placings and we’re expecting a win this preparation.
She is a daughter of Sebring that looked good in those efforts and even her fourth at Mornington last start was a solid outing.
Money has come for her since markets opened and she could firm to around $3 come start time.
Race 3. (14:15) Ladbrokes Maiden Plate (1205m)
#1 – El Rocko @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
El Rocko finished second behind subsequent Blue Diamond winner Artorius on debut and form doesn’t get much better for this level.
The John McArdle-trained colt was 4.5 lengths behind, but it was still a nice effort and he has been given time to mature since.
$4.80 for a promising runner is good shopping and we’ll happily take that price.
Race 4. (14:50) Carlton Draught BM70 (1205m)
#6 – Lindhout @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to remain unbeaten is Lindhout, which won by 1.5 lengths at Bendigo on debut. That run came six months ago, but she has been given time to mature.
The four-year-old daughter of Time For War couldn’t have been more impressive on debut and there is good betting support this time around.
Her opening odds of $2.45 have been taken and an odds-on quote could be on the cards.
Race 5. (15:25) Evans Petroleum BM64 (1411m)
#1 – Knowitall Jack @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Knowitall Jack has ability and although he’s not firing on all cylinders, that could all change on Wednesday.
The five-year-old son of Pierro is a three-time winner and he has yet to race at Sale, so the new surroundings could work in his favour.
3kg comes off his back to help with the big weight and punters could see the best of him this week.
Race 6. (16:00) Carlton Dry BM64 (1728m)
#5 – Mr Roger @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Roger comes off back-to-back placings at Cranbourne and Pakenham, so he is knocking loudly on the door.
The Richard Laming-trained three-year-old owns a win from seven starts and it shouldn’t take him long to get back to his best.
Barrier four is ideal and he looks primed to strike at each-way odds.
Race 7. (16:35) Viatek BM70 (2219m)
#1 – Coin Collector @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coin Collector is only a two-win runner but he has been close to the mark throughout his career.
The four-year-old gelding comes off three consecutive placings at Moonee Valley and that form bodes well for the midweeks at Sale.
He loves this distance and dropping from BM80 to BM70 grade is right up his alley.
Race 8. (17:10) Sale Signtorque BM64 (1205m)
#8 – Quietly Discreet @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Phillip Stokes-trained filly scored back-to-back wins last preparation and she can get back to her best form.
She is a well-bred daughter of Exceed And Excel that wasn’t beaten far at Sandown last start and she faces an easier field this time around.
Barrier 11 could make it difficult, but she is worth following.
