Sale free tips & form
Race 1. (12:20) John Allman Maiden (1000m)
#5 – Deference – Bet Now
It always pays to take notice of James Cummings-trained debutantes and Deference could make a winning start.
The colt by Exceed And Excel is bred to show early speed and although there’s no trial form to speak of, he could fire up on debut.
Any push in the betting will be a positive.
Race 2. (12:55) Max Blakiston Maiden (1717m)
#5 – Spilia – Bet Now
Comes into this with three consecutive second placings and looks a good chance of finally breaking through.
The three-year-old son of Pierro was beaten as a short-priced favourite at Ballarat last start but the track might not have helped his chances.
Should be better suited to Sale and reward loyal punters that have stuck by the consistent yet frustrating three-year-old.
Race 3. (13:30) Peter Gray BM64 (1600m)
#6 – Wild Breeze – Bet Now
Three-year-old filly which comes into this with a last-start win at Cranbourne and she could kick on with it.
The daughter of Toorak Toff scored narrowly as the favourite and she defeated Jungle Jane, which has since run a placing at Mornington on Monday.
It’s good to see Craig Williams in the saddle and she looks a good winning hope once again.
Race 4. (14:05) Helen Cantwell BM70 (2200m)
#1 – Brigadier – Bet Now
This is only a moderate field and it won’t take a superstar to win it. Brigadier fits the bill and we’re respecting the big betting move last start.
The Wayne Walters-trained runner was smashed in betting last start but got way too far back in the run and showed nothing in the straight.
Betting moves suggest the horse is in good order, so respect this runner.
Race 5. (14:40) Thelma Coster BM70 (1200m)
#6 – Layel – Bet Now
Talented mare which had only one run when last in work. That came in October when she ran third at Bendigo and the break might have done her some good.
As a younger type, Layel showed ability when winning at Sandown before running second behind Miss Leonidas at Moonee Valley.
The stable though enough of her to run behind Nature Strip at Flemington but this level of racing is much easier and she should be able rekindle that form.
Race 6. (15:15) Anthony Lee C1 Handicap (1100m)
#8 – Mean To Me – Bet Now
Mean To Me was spelled following her win in December and she could make a winning 2019 debut.
The Henry Dwyer-trained four-year-old scored by a length at Yarra Valley following a second placing at Hamilton on debut.
It’s tough to line up that form at this level, but punters should be expecting a good run and the betting should tell the story as to how forward she is.
Race 7. (15:50) David Wilson BM64 (1400m)
#12 – Benitoite – Bet Now
We’re prepared to forgive that run of Benitoite last start and stick with the three-year-old filly.
She’s by Americain, so she will be needing time to mature, despite winning on debut at Moe. That win was a good effort against a speedy field and she didn’t handle the immediate rise in distance.
However, she is fitter for the run and given her breeding, she’s unlilkely to be a sprinter of the future.
Allow one more chance with Damien Oliver in the saddle.
Race 8. (16:25) Wayne Pollock BM64 (1717m)
#7 – Anything But – Bet Now
Mike Moroney lines up the three-year-old gelding which has won and placed from five career starts.
The son of Savabeel is a former Kiwi runner which didn’t make an impression when seventh at Sandown but he did make some late ground.
His form across the Tasman included a win at Pukekohe before placing at Te Aroha and a fourth at Ellerslie. That form should be good enough and the Kiwis have been firing in Australia this season.
