Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:55) Carpet Court Maiden (1100m)
#3 – Torinda @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Joe Pride lines up the four-year-old gelding that owns two trial placings. He is a well-bred son of Toronado that has been patiently handled to date.
His odds have stayed firm throughout the week at $2, so there is good stable support with bookmakers.
Punters should expect a top effort on debut.
Race 2. (13:35) HQ Insurance Maiden Plate (1600m)
#13 – More Excitement @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
More Excitement has attracted plenty of interest in betting after opening at $6. The three-year-old filly finished fifth on debut at Goulburn and she will be better for the outing.
Her breeding suggests she will appreciate the rise in distance and given the tote support, we’re backing her in on Sunday.
Barrier four helps and Robbie Dolan is riding well this season.
Race 5. (15:25) Power FM Maiden (1100m)
#1 – Argyll Gardens @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jason Coyle lines up the debutante that has been given an easy time at the trials to date. She hit the line nicely at Hawkesbury last time out and the betting support is a good sign.
She is a daughter of Canford Cliffs that gets the services of Tommy Berry and $5 is a price worth taking on Sunday.
It could pay to watch for any late betting moves on race day.
Race 6. (16:05) Go Steel Building Products C2 (1400m)
#13 – Danzadel @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Danzadel capped off consecutive placings with a win last start and there is plenty to like about that form.
The three-year-old filly enjoyed the heavy track conditions and conditions are too dissimilar to what she will face on Sunday.
It’s another good ride for Tommy Berry, so put her on top.
Race 7. (16:45) Newhaven Park Sera Qualifier C5 (1400m)
#3 – Art Cadeau @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Art Cadeau has yet to finish worse than second from nine starts, which includes a Highway Handicap win last time out.
The extremely consistent four-year-old owns three wins and six second placings, so backing against him is always a risk.
He drops 5kg from his Highway win, so he rates as a weighting special.
Race 1. (13:30) Tac Maiden Plate (1600m)
#9 – The Onion Thief @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Onion Thief comes off two placings and her run for second at Donald last start should be a good form guide.
The four-year-old daughter of Mawingo looks close to breaking through for the win and this isn’t an overly strong maiden affair.
We expect the $2.90 to firm over the weekend.
Race 3. (14:40) Rob Gaylard Memorial Maiden (1200m)
#7 – Luminara @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Luminara was heavily backed to win at Werribee last start and she had to settle for second. It was still a good effort and punters get much better odds this time around.
The four-year-old is progressing nicely this season and she gets every chance to win from barrier four. That should see her track the speed and launch with a claim in the straight.
Take the $4.40 available, as it’s a value price.
Race 5. (15:45) Colac Toyota BM64 (1600m)
#3 – Clever Approach @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Clever Approach comes off consecutive wins and he is starting to live up to his potential. The former Kiwi came to Australia with a big reputation, and after scoring two wins, he could continue on with it.
His most recent win at Ballarat was a stylish outing and he picked them up with ease. It doesn’t matter what the conditions are on Sunday as he handles all surfaces.
He opened at $4.60 and a steady flow of money has come.
Race 6. (16:20) AKD Softwoods BM64 (2000m)
#2 – Aurora’s Symphony @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aurora’s Symphony has been the best-backed runner from the Symon Wilde stable and that is a good sign.
The four-year-old gelding owns two wins and six placings from 11 starts, so he is rarely out of the money. His most recent win was impressive when charging through to score, so that form bodes well.
He gets the gun run off the inside draw and he should go close.
