Thursday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:30) Clinton Baulch Motor Group Maiden (1100m)
#5 – Kick It Baby @ $5 – Bet Now
Kick It Baby has had the benefit of two race day starts for two placings. The Matt Laurie-trained filly ran second at Ballarat on debut and followed it up with a second at Pakenham.
She is a speedy type by Shamus Award that shows good barrier pace and finding the front from barrier one won’t be an issue.
$5 is a value price in the opening race.
Race 3. (13:30) Pitstop Menswear Maiden (1400m)
#3 – Ize Fairdinkum @ $4.20 – Bet Now
He could be fair dinkum and the three-year-old gelding won’t take long to exit maiden grades.
The son of Fruehling finished a nose behind the winner at Warracknabeal earlier this month and we’re expecting that form to hold steady.
He opened at $5 and steady money has come throughout the week, which is always a good sign.
Race 4. (14:00) Fabriweld Construction Maiden (1000m)
#2 – Em Em D’ar @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Patrick Payne lines up the three-year-old that is getting close to a win. He finished second last time out and he made up steady ground in the straight.
He is a son of Kuroshio that opened as the firm favourite and he should have this field covered on talent alone.
Jye McNeil takes the ride and that adds to the confidence levels.
Race 6. (15:00) Ludeman Real Estate BM64 (2041m)
#3 – Caliburn @ $2.80 – Bet Now
Caliburn is shooting for his third consecutive win and the future jumper could make it three on the bounce.
Trained by Symon Wilde, the four-year-old by Camelot won by 4.5 lengths after leading throughout at Murtoa last start.
It was a good effort and he has successfully staved off a hurdle career after having a trial last month. He is worth sticking with and the odds are worth taking.
Race 8. (16:00) Wdea Works Employment BM64 (1200m)
#6 – Glass Ceiling @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Glass Ceiling could rise through the grades following her win at Casterton. The Payne-trained mare hit the line with good power to score and the rise to 1200m worked.
She is a daughter of Equiano that finished third behind Humzz at Sale in April and that form looks good for BM64 grade.
There are many things in her favour and the $3.90 odds are well worth snapping up.
Race 1. (13:05) Kapture Dust BM64 (2000m)
#5 – Cicero Field @ $3.70 – Bet Now
Looking to score back-to-back wins is Cicero Field, which won by two lengths at Gosford last Thursday.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained three-year-old is on the quick back up and we liked the way she hit the line.
Rising to 2000m seems natural for the daughter of Deep Field and the inside draw suits.
Race 2. (13:40) Poplar Petfood & Produce Maiden (1300m)
#8 – Global Queen @ $2.10 – Bet Now
There was good money for Global Queen on debut when finishing fourth at Canterbury. It was a slightly disappointing effort but she drops in class for this race.
The well-bred daughter of Snitzel gets in nicely on the weights at 55.5kg and that is a weight drop from her debut run.
Money is coming for her again and it looks well-placed this time around.
Race 3. (14:20) TC Air & Electric Maiden (1400m)
#1 – Doctor Mancini @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Doctor Mancini only raced last Saturday where he was a touch unlucky. There was a fast lane out wide and he was ridden through the middle of the track.
He looked the winner halfway down the straight but was overhauled by the winner late. However, he measures up well here and his maiden win is coming.
Stick with him until he breaks his maiden status.
Race 4. (14:55) Superior Hire Cars Maiden (1000m)
#7 – On The Lead @ $2.60 – Bet Now
The form lines of On The Lead look good for this race and his recent trial form is superior. He finished behind Gravina and Golden Slipper winner Farnan last start, which is a great form guide.
He has had two trials since for a placing and a win at Randwick, which came by five lengths earlier this month.
We thought he would be the odds-on favourite so watch for a late betting move.
