Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (10:45) E-Cycle Solutions Maiden (3272m)
#3 – Flickitova – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained jumper was a little disappointing at Warrnambool last start but he has a chance to redeem himself. He finished fourth as the favourite, but he might have needed the experience.
Punters get odds worth taking this time around and the six-year-old son of Raise the Flag should give a better sight at Sale.
Watch for late betting moves.
Race 2. (11:30) E-Cycle Solutions Hurdle (3272m)
#4 – Roland Garros @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roland Garros makes his jumps debut and it pays to overlook his flat racing form. He has shown promise over the jumps in trials and track conditions look ideal.
The six-year-old son of Helmet owns six wins and five placings, so he showed speed on the flat and he looks like a jumps winner in the waiting.
$2.60 is a fair price and we’re expecting that to firm.
Race 4. (12:40) Sale Cup Maiden Plate (1206m)
#1 – Amegdul – Bet @ Sportsbet
James Cummings lines up the two-year-old colt that finished second at Sandown two back and anything close to that form would be good enough.
The son of Medaglia D’oro didn’t fire at Pakenham last time out, but he needed a spell and he could return as a much stronger type.
Barrier three is ideal and we’re expecting a tidy effort.
Race 6. (14:00) DFK Construction Maiden (1415m)
#12 – Runaway River – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off three consecutive second placings is Runaway River, who finished second at Sale last time out.
The Ellerton/Zahra-trained three-year-old wasn’t far behind a smart type and although drawing barrier 12 isn’t ideal, she has the class to overcome it.
Expect her to roll forward and be right in the thick of the action.
Race 8. (15:10) Bruce Carter Fencing BM58 (1732m)
#3 – Shock Zone – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value should be with Shock Zone, who comes off a win at Sale and he’s more than capable of going back-to-back.
The three-year-old by Kermadec scored by two lengths over the mile, so rising to 1732m is ideal and it’s not the strongest field he’ll ever face.
Expect each-way odds from bookmakers on race day.
Race 2. (13:35) Industree Group Maiden (1100m)
#3 – Tocomah @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to go one better than his debut is Tocomah. The Garry Frazer-trained three-year-old ran 3.8 lengths behind the winner on this track and it was a solid debut effort.
The son of Toronado has since won a trial at Hawkesbury by 3.5 lengths and that was a good hit-out for this contest.
We’re not surprised by the odds available and he should give favourite backers an excellent sight.
Race 3. (14:10) Central Coast Granite Maiden (1000m)
#7 – Warmth @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The well-bred filly by Hinchinbrook was a $525,000 purchase and she’s looking to get her connections some of that money back on Sunday.
She placed in a trial behind Big Parade at Randwick before winning a trial at Hawkesbury. If she was a superstar she wouldn’t be debuting at Gosford on a Sunday, but she could have too much class for this field.
Barrier four is ideal and there has been steady money with bookies.
Race 5. (15:25) Tanti Financial Services Maiden (1200m)
#8 – Silver Thorn @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Silver Thorn is getting close to breaking through after another placing and the drop in weight to 53kg should take him close.
The two-year-old son of Capitalist finished third at Newcastle behind Mura Mura before running third at Hawkesbury on a heavy track.
He is capable and this race is there for the taking.
Race 6. (16:05) Eve Electrical BM64 (1200m)
#3 – Bojack @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bojack looked the goods when winning on debut at Gosford. The Waterhouse/Bott-trained gelding scored by three lengths before struggling at Wyong last time out.
He faced a tidy field on that occasion and he was asked to do too much work. If he gets a better run in transit, he should go close.
Having winning experience on the track helps, so put him on top.
