Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) bet365 Protest Promise Maiden (1300m)
#3 – Hasslefree @ $3 – Bet Now
The form behind Hasslefree this season has been good, which includes two placings from three starts.
He ran third behind Whittington Stone at Pakenham last start and that was a strong maiden effort. His two other runs were solid and this isn’t the strongest maiden field we’ve ever seen.
Take the $3 on offer and he should give punters a good sight.
Race 3. (14:10) Gift Hotel Maiden (1600m)
#11 – Great Ambition @ $3.50 – Bet Now
The three-year-old filly is knocking on the door of a breakthrough win after three consecutive placings.
She sat on the speed at Pakenham last start and was only narrowly beaten on the line. If she can produce a similar effort, she’ll be tough to catch.
Most of the money has come her way throughout the week.
Race 5. (15:15) Northern Grampians Shire BM64 (2700m)
#1 – Castel Sant’angelo @ $2.05 – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding should be at much shorter odds because he’s the clear class horse in this race.
He’s a four-year-old that has been in the money in eight of his 14 starts. Most of his starts have come against quality opposition, including a second placing behind Corncrake two back.
He won’t have any problems finding the front and his $2.05 odds could firm to $1.60 on race day.
Race 6. (15:45) Tac Be Races Ready BM64 (1300m)
#9 – Crowned Lizzie @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Daniel Bowman lines up the filly that won on debut and she’s capable of returning to that form.
The daughter of Hallowed Crown has run well since and despite running eighth at Caulfield, she was severely outclassed.
With some luck from barrier 11, she should be fighting out the finish.
Race 7. (16:20) Stuart McGregor Stawell Cup (2000m)
#3 – Skelm @ $2.50 – Bet Now
Skelm is a professional type that brings in quality form. The five-year-old finished third behind Aktau last start and second behind Salsamor three starts back.
That form is high-quality for the Stawell Cup and having a strong rider with John Allen in the saddle helps.
$2.50 is a fraction short but worth taking.
Race 2. (12:55) Eurobodalla Relief Fund Maiden (1425m)
#10 – River Charge @ $4.40 – Bet Now
River Charge has placed in three of his four starts to date, including a third placing Nowra last start.
The three-year-old gelding settled back in the run before making headway in the straight. It was a solid effort and he should break through soon.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and punters are getting good odds.
Race 4. (14:05) LJ Hooker Moruya BM58 (1010m)
#8 – Art Cadeau @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Art Cadeau was a quality winner on debut at Canberra and he could remain unbeaten.
He scored a narrow win after leading throughout and if he can show good barrier speed again, he’ll be tough to stop.
His opening quote of $5.50 has firmed in significantly.
Race 6. (15:20) Curtis & Cloud C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Perfect Pitch @ $3 – Bet Now
Perfect Pitch is the class runner of this field, despite having only one win on her record.
The four-year-old has run four consecutive placings coming into this race and those have come in town.
She ran third behind Mirra Vision two starts back and Mirra Vision would put five lengths on this field.
We’re expecting a top performance and the $3 odds are worth taking.
