Sunday horse racing tips


Race 1. (13:20) Spendthrift W Defoe Maiden (2000m)

#8 – Salto Angel @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Salto Angel is running out of chances but we’re prepared to give her one more.

The Danny O’Brien-trained mare showed plenty of early promise when running close behind smart types, but her recent efforts have been fair.

She might be better for the fitness, so she goes on top because of natural ability.

Race 3. (14:30) In2access Services Maiden (1100m)

#5 – Media Empire @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Media Empire showed enough during his first campaign to be considered fresh up.

The three-year-old son of Winning Rupert finished second two back at Echuca and he should appreciate running on firmer ground.

Getting the inside draw is ideal and punters get fair odds.

Race 4. (15:05) Spendthrift Australia Maiden (1100m)

#4 – Game to Love @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Game to Love was only a length behind the winner on debut and it had good betting support on that occasion.

The three-year-old filly by I Am Invincible fought nicely to the line, which should be good enough form for this contest.

It could pay to take the $2.90 before the odds drop.

Race 7. (16:55) Tab Werribee Cup (2000m)

#6 – Starcaster – $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Starcaster didn’t fire at The Valley last time out but it’s a track that didn’t suit the seven-year-old.

The son of Dansili looked much better when scoring at Benalla prior to that, which came over current favourite Bartholomeu Dias.

He is a six-time winner who demands respect in the feature race.


Race 1. (13:50) Scaffbuilt Maiden Handicap (1000m)

#6 – Rock Chant @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Rock Chant is a $300,000 purchase who has been hammered since betting markets opened.

The three-year-old filly by Fastnet Rock comes off an 8.3-length trial win in heavy conditions at Hawkesbury and conditions should be ideal.

She has firmed from an opening quote of $3, which is a sizable move.

Race 3. (15:00) Jack Heasman Memorial C1 Handicap (1500m)

#6 – Dark Energy @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet

James Cummings lines up the three-year-old gelding who has been around the mark throughout his career.

The son of Exosphere finished second at Gosford last time out and he was only a nose behind the winner, which bodes well.

Barrier three is ideal and punters get each-way odds to enjoy on Sunday.

Race 5. (16:16) JSJ Roofing BM64 (1100m)

#11 – Glamour and Glory @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Glamour and Glory is searching for consecutive wins after scoring at Wyong by 1.5 lengths.

The daughter of Star Turn has finished in the money in three of her four starts and she wasn’t far away at her only attempt at Hawkesbury.

It’s not an easy field, but punters get each-way odds worth taking. Her odds could firm on race day.

Race 6. (16:51) Sky Summer Series C5 (1400m)

#10 – Divine Breath @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Divine Breath was too slick for a talented field at Kembla Grange last start and a repeat looms.

The four-year-old mare owns two wins and six placings from 10 starts, so she doesn’t know how to run a bad race.

Dropping to 53.5kg is ideal and she hasn’t been missed in early betting markets.
