Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:40) Bet365 Protest Promise Maiden (1400m)
#14 – Write The Score @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Write The Score is knocking on the door after four consecutive placings and the three-year-old deserves a victory.
The daughter of Written Tycoon owns five placings from eight career starts and the change in track could see her winning.
Punters get fair odds and she should go well.
Race 2. (12:15) Apiam Animal Health BM70 (1400m)
#4 – Ayahuasca @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ayahuasca scored on debut at Cranbourne before running sixth at Ballarat. However, she bounced back with a third placing at Sandown last start.
The Price/Kent-trained daughter of Tavistock was under a length behind the winner and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
Punters haven’t missed her in early betting markets.
Race 4. (13:25) Smartline Finance Handicap (1600m)
#11 – Karolinka @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Improving with every run is Karolinka, which finished third at Donald two back before finishing second at Sandown.
The two-year-old filly was 3.3 lengths behind Fac last start and that form has since stacked up well at Saturday level.
2kg comes off her back and that’s ideal.
Race 7. (15:15) Donna Philpot Memorial BM65 (1000m)
#11 – Better Kick @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Richards-trained three-year-old looked good when winning two back at Wangaratta and it should be a good form guide.
He is a son of Scissor Kick that wasn’t far behind some smart types at Sandown last start and drawing the inside barrier should see him in contention.
He opened at $3.40 and has firmed considerably.
Race 8. (15:50) Roll The Dice Racing BM64 (1600m)
#6 – Alumna @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shooting for three consecutive wins is Alumna, which scored at Wyong by a half-length before winning at Geelong.
The four-year-old mare looks to have plenty of potential at this level and getting the services of Damien Oliver is a positive.
Watch the market for any late betting moves.
Race 2. (12:30) Tecnix Air Maiden (1000m)
#11 – Asherla @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Asherla didn’t fire fresh up at Muswellbrook, but the two-year-old filly might have needed the run.
The Kris Lees-trained daughter of Astern started her career with consecutive second placings and that form should be good enough at maiden level.
$2.10 is worth taking and carrying 55kg helps.
Race 3. (13:05) Inland Tractors Maiden (1250m)
#5 – Monte Di Rose @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly hit he line nicely at long odds last start and she doesn’t look far off a winning run.
She is a daughter of Outreach that struggled last campaign, but she has matured nicely and it won’t take her long to break maiden grades.
She hasn’t been missed in betting and it could pay to follow the money.
Race 5. (14:15) HLW Projects BM58 (1250m)
#1 – Oh Say @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Oh Say owns two wins from her last four starts and the three-year-old filly is good enough to win again.
The daughter of Starspangledbanner showed a fine turn-of-foot to score at Port Macquarie last start and a repeat takes her close.
She has to carry a big weight but it’s warranted and she should go well.
Race 7. (15:30) Wauchope Cup (1450m)
#2 – Think Free @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Think Free showed good speed when running fourth fresh up and she should be ready to fire with that fitness under the belt.
She is a five-time winner from 17 starts, so she is better than her form suggests and punters get value odds for this contest.
$6 is well worth taking in the feature race.
