Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:15) Buloke Shire Council Maiden (2000m)
#8 – Bring the Stars @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bring the Stars is shooting to cap off consecutive placings with a win. The three-year-old finished second at Hamilton before running second at Moe, so the form checks out.
He should enjoy being on the quick back-up and there are no superstars in this field, so conditions look ideal.
$2.70 is a fair price for a nice type.
Race 2. (13:50) Goodwin Village Donald Maiden (1350m)
#5 – Telegraph @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Telegraph comes off consecutive placings and he shouldn’t take long to win a race this season.
The three-year-old son of Cable Bay finished 3.3 lengths behind the winner as a $1.28 chance last start, but punters get a chance of redemption.
The odds appeal and we’re confident of his chances from barrier two.
Race 4. (15:00) Gilchrist & Co BM70 (1350m)
#3 – Our Lone Star @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old son of Magnus is a two-time winner from eight starts who should enjoy conditions on Sunday.
He finished third when fresh up at Bendigo behind Maybe the Best, and we expect that form to stack up well at this level.
Having that run under his belt should see him run close at short odds.
Race 6. (16:10) Bet365 Donald Cup (1620m)
#6 – Petruchio @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Petruchio has been mixing his form, but the seven-year-old runs his best races over this distance.
The imported son of New Approach scored a win at Sandown three back before disappointing at Flemington behind Mr Brightside.
His last start effort at Geelong was solid and punters get each-way odds, which are worth taking.
Race 1. (13:35) Harvest Hotels Maiden (1010m)
#6 – Ga Ga Gus @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money has come for the former Victorian after showing very little in two race day starts.
The three-year-old has beaten only two runners home, but since moving to New South Wales, he has posted a trial win and placing at Scone.
The change in scenery might have helped Ga Ga Gus, so stick with him.
Race 3. (14:45) Ladies Day Maiden (1310m)
#11 – Miss Milton @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miss Milton has gone close in two of her four starts, and she’s not facing an overly strong maiden field on Sunday.
She comes off a second placing on a heavy track at Taree where she went down by only a half-length. It was an encouraging effort and she won’t take long to win.
She gets every chance off an inside barrier with a light weight.
Race 4. (15:20) The Pig & Tinder Box BM66 (1010m)
#5 – Chevconi @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Searching for three consecutive wins is Chevconi, who scored at Narromine before winning at Bathurst.
The five-year-old son of Nicconi defeated only a field of only four runners last start, but it will give him confidence.
Punters get value odds for the form runner.
Race 6. (16:30) Brady’s Railway Hotel C3 Handicap (1410m)
#3 – Our Cousin Al @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Our Cousin Al turned his form around when scoring at Muswellbrook last start. The five-year-old won by just under a length, which is solid form.
He has finished in the money in eight of his 14 starts, so punters are getting a consistent type who won his only start at this distance.
Barrier 11 isn’t ideal but he has time to find cover from the draw.
