Thursday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:55) RFS Volunteers Thank You Maiden (2100m)
#5 – Red Hot Chillypins @ $2.35 – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare was unlucky not to win at Newcastle last start but she gets her chance now.
After seven starts and three consecutive second placings, the daughter of Rock ‘N’ Pop looks ready to breakthrough.
Punters are getting fair odds and she could start as the odds-on favourite.
Race 2. (13:35) Ses Volunteers Thank You Maiden (1000m)
#6 – Zanzidance @ $1.85 – Bet Now
Mark Newnham lines up the two-year-old filly that didn’t do much wrong when second on debut.
The daughter of Deep Field ran second behind Emanate and we like the way she battled on stoutly in the run to the line.
Punters have to take the short odds but she could start even lower.
Race 5. (15:25) Coca-Cola C1 Handicap (1600m)
#2 – Kirwan’s Lane @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Kirwan’s Lane did well to score at Newcastle last start and he could go back-to-back.
The son of Charm Spirit justified his short odds last start and punters are getting much better odds this time around.
He faces a rise in class but we were impressed with that win. It appears as though he could rise through the grades nicely.
Race 7. (16:40) Wyong’s Race Day BM70 (1350m)
#9 – Trajection @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Kim Waugh has the three-year-old filly running well and she has been well-backed to win this race.
The daughter of Smart Missile scored by 2.5 lengths in a dominant display last start. It came only 24 days after she scored by 2.5 lengths at Hawkesbury.
She’s a three-time winner at this distance and her only start at Wyong resulted in a second placing.
Race 8. (17:15) Good Luck @ Provincial Championships C1 (1000m)
#1 – Rifles @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Rifles comes into this race following a win on this track and he’s every chance of going back-to-back.
The four-year-old by Smart Missile won by 4.5 lengths and he really stretched out late to score. It was an impressive performance and we’re surprised at his odds.
We thought he would be around $3 to win, so take the odds offered.
Race 1. (17:30) Racing.com Maiden Plate (1600m)
#5 – Does It @ $2.65 – Bet Now
Patrick Payne lines up the one-start gelding that did well to finish third on debut. He made excellent ground in the straight to run third behind Turbeau.
It bodes well for the future and it comes as no surprise to see his odds short for this race. We wouldn’t want to see it get any shorter, but take the $2.65.
Race 4. (19:00) Shanks Electrical Maiden (1400m)
#2 – Bayvista @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Bayvista has settled on the pace in all three starts to date and battled on nicely. He owns three placings from three starts and looks set for another tidy effort.
Trained by Team Hawkes, the three-year-old by Deep Zone ran close at Sandown last start and form out of that race should hold up nicely.
He has more upside than most in this field.
Race 5. (19:30) Stabil Lime C1 Handicap (1400m)
#15 – Ocular @ $3.10 – Bet Now
Ocular is looking to bounce back after running sixth at The Valley last start, but his form prior was excellent.
He won on debut at Werribee by 2.8 lengths behind pushing the previously unbeaten How Wowmanic to a close margin.
Punters have climbed into his price already and it should drop further.
