Sunday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:35) Bet365 Odds Drift Protect Maiden (1412m)
#7 – The Admiral @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Admiral ended his last campaign with four consecutive placings, and he deserves a fresh up win at Geelong.
He is a Mike Moroney-trained four-year-old who is best over more ground, but he ran 1.4 lengths behind the winner over 1500m last time in work.
Barrier two and Jye McNeil riding is a positive.
Race 2. (14:10) John Spence Maiden (1512m)
#7 – Man of Heart @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to improve on some moderate efforts to start his career is Man of Heart. The three-year-old colt finished fourth on debut at Bendigo before running fifth fresh up at Geelong.
He couldn’t reel in the leaders, but he finished off nicely and it was an impressive effort after missing the jump.
$2.80 is a fair price given the field.
Race 6. (16:30) Oz Equipment Rentals BM64 (1715m)
#14 – Silk Jacket @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Silk Jacket is searching for consecutive victories after scoring at Pakenham. The five-year-old mare has been in the money in 10 of her 14 starts, including a second placing at her only start on the track.
She ran 1.3 lengths behind the winner two back at Geelong, and after scoring at odds of $2.60 last start, punters should enjoy the $6 available.
It’s an open field but she should get every chance.
Race 7. (17:00) Rex Gorell BM78 (1212m)
#1 – Ocular @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ocular flashed home late to finish second behind Corner Pocket at Moonee Valley last start, which is excellent form for this level of racing.
The Shea Eden-trained five-year-old carried a much lighter weight last start, but he was facing a much stronger field. He should enjoy dropping to this level and he gets every chance off the inside draw.
$3.50 is well worth taking before it drops.
Race 1. (12:55) National Jockeys Trust Maiden (1300m)
#14 – Press Sydney @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to go one better than last start is Press Sydney, who finished second at Narromine by a nose.
The three-year-old filly has needed time to mature, and she looks ready to strike now. We were impressed with her effort last month, and we’re not surprised by the odds.
Carrying only 55kg from barrier three should see her fighting out the finish.
Race 3. (14:05) Off the Track NSW Maiden (950m)
#9 – Cupid’s Kiss @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cupid’s Kiss has improved with every run and there was little wrong with its third placing at Scone last time out.
The John Ramsey-trained three-year-old was only 1.2 lengths behind the winner, so that form bodes well, and she has been smashed in betting.
She opened at $3.30 before being immediately backed into $2.50. That’s a fair move and we think she’ll be tough to hold out.
Race 5. (15:20) Treasurer’s C1 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Chewie Two @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chewie Two is a big type that has more talent than his record suggests. He owns a win and five placings from 10 starts, but he could have easily won about three or four races.
The five-year-old has a knack of getting in his own way, but he’s not lacking talent and there are no superstars in this field.
We’re happy to take the $4 in an even field.
Race 6. (15:55) Westpac Helicopter Town Plate (950m)
#6 – Fortnite @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to win his third start from four attempts this preparation, Fortnite is a popular early pick in betting markets.
The Mark Stewart-trained five-year-old opened at $2.60 and has been backed into $2.05, which is a serious move for a favourite.
His win at Tamworth was full of class and dropping to 53kg is ideal.
