Gosford racing tips

Race 1. (13:25) Viridian Financial Group Maiden (1600m)

#4 – Royal Standard @ $4.80

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Royal Standard has run fourth in two starts, but we expect improvement from the James Cummings stable.

The three-year-old gelding by Dundeel doesn’t need to improve much to beat this field, and rising in distance adds to its appeal.

Take the each-way odds available.

Race 2. (14:00) The Jack Chalker Memorial Maiden (1000m)

#3 – Reigning Captain @ $1.90

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Reigning Captain has looked good at the trials with four starts for two wins and two placings.

The four-year-old son of Capitalist has been patiently handled, but it could pay off on race day with a victory.

We’re happy to take the short odds with the favourite.

Race 5. (15:45) Entero BM64 (1200m)

#2 – Cross Your Heart @ $3.80

Cross Your Heart is seeking three consecutive wins after scoring her last two at Wyong.

The three-year-old filly by Deep Field scored against a nice field last time out, and we expect that form to hold up nicely.

Getting 2kg off her back helps with the big weight.

Race 6. (16:20) Mounties Group BM64 (1200m)

#2 – Rapido @ $2.25

Rapido showed good form during his first preparation, including a last start win at Newcastle.

The three-year-old son of Capitalist won that by 4.3 lengths, so it was a classy effort, and his trial form since has been steady.

Money has come for him, and he could be the bet of the day.

Pakenham racing tips

Race 2. (17:45) Neil Matthews Handicap (1200m)

#9 – Zousuko @ $3.80

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Zousuko looked good winning fresh up at Pakenham before running at The Valley and Caulfield Heath.

Getting back to Pakenham could see her best form return, and rising in distance should help her cause.

Track conditions could be sticky, but she has upside.

Race 4. (18:45) Malcolm Reedy Maiden (2000m)

#4 – King of Wessex @ $4.00

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

We expected King of Wessex to have won a race by now, so we’re happy to stick with him.

The three-year-old gelding by Saxon Warrior needs to navigate a wide draw, but he has time to find cover over 2000m.

Punters get each-way odds to snap up for the loose favourite.

Race 5. (19:15) Sarah Kelly Takes on Maiden (1400m)

#11 – Stylish @ $4.60

Stylish hasn’t been too far away in three runs to date, including a second placing at Bendigo two back.

The three-year-old daughter of Lonhro is better than what she showed at Pakenham last start, and a wet track could help her cause.

Money has come for her, which suggests she handles it.

Race 6. (19:45) David Bak Maiden (1600m)

#7 – Kooky @ $2.20

betrLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Kooky is getting close to a win after consecutive placings, including a last-start second placing at Geelong.

The daughter of Turn Me Loose was only a nose behind the winner, and rising to the mile won’t worry her one bit.

Take the $2.20 before that price shortens on race night.
