Thursday horse racing tips
Race 2. (14:00) McCarthy Big Screen Hire Maiden (1700m)
#5 – Arohaboy @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Arohaboy hasn’t recorded a win or placing from five starts, but the three-year-old meets an even field.
The son of Turn Me Loose hit the line nicely enough at Pakenham last start, which suggests he’ll enjoy the rise in distance.
Punters get fair odds for a runner that shouldn’t take long to win.
Race 4. (15:00) Raffertys Tavern Maiden (1300m)
#3 – Grand York @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Symon Wilde-trained gelding finished third on debut at Warrnambool and that track experience is ideal.
Most of the early money has come for the son of Epaulette, who opened at $6 with bookmakers before firming to $4.80.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and it should be tough to beat.
Race 6. (16:00) Western Agricentre BM58 (1100m)
#1 – It’s Classified @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s Classified scored her maiden win at Geelong two back by 1.8 lengths and she could get back to her best.
Her most recent effort at Sandown wasn’t her best, but she has been given time to mature and her jumpout win at Geelong is a good guide.
Carrying 64kg is ideal but she has the clear class edge over this field.
Race 7. (16:30) J&P Advanced Plastering BM58 (1300m)
#2 – Canadian Gold – $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We’re not sure what went wrong with Canadian Gold at Pakenham last start, but the stable change could get her firing.
She showed ability when running second at Sale and Ballarat prior, and she also recorded a third placing at Flemington.
3kg comes off her back and we’re sticking with her.
Race 1. (13:50) Community Bank Wyong Maiden (1350m)
#7 – Estonia @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Estonia is looking to cap off three consecutive second placings with a win, so we’re in her camp.
The Freedman-trained filly was well-backed when running second behind Angelical last start at Newcastle. She did well to run second and she could go one better.
Stay Wealty is the biggest danger, but Estonia should be the one to beat.
Race 3. (15:05) Battery World Wyong Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Caboteur @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to go one better than last start is Caboteur, who wasn’t bothered with the wet track at Canterbury.
The three-year-old gelding finished under a length from the winner as a $14 chance, so he has attracted much better support this time around.
It’s not the strongest field and the betting support looks well placed.
Race 4. (15:40) Central Coast Unity Bank BM64 (1600m)
#7 – Lord Winston @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lord Winston is searching for consecutive wins after scoring at Newcastle by 1.8 lengths last time out.
The Kris Lees-trained son of Shalaa improved nicely from his debut effort and he could kick on with the job.
He has been steadily backed throughout the week and we wouldn’t be leaving him off our ticket.
Race 6. (16:55) Signarama Tuggerah BM64 (1000m)
#7 – Sachello @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sachello scored consecutive wins before running sixth at Rosehill last start, which wasn’t a bad effort.
The Matthew Dunn-trained three-year-old was only three lengths behind Shihonka, which has since won again on Saturday.
2kg comes off her back and we’re more than happy to take the $4.20 available with bookmakers.
