Thursday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:20) Bethany Honeysett Maiden (2000m)
#5 – Stylebender @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stylebender is a three-year-old gelding that owns three placings from 12 starts, and although yet to win, he faces an average field here.
The son of Tavistock comes off a fourth placing behind Wicklow, which has since stacked up nicely in Saturday-grade racing.
$1.90 is getting short but he should get the job done.
Race 2. (13:55) Ben Vassallo Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Ultra @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
James Cummings lines up the two-year-old filly that finished a nose behind the winner at Newcastle on debut.
The daughter of Not A Single Doubt battled on strongly and we’re surprised she’s not the favourite for this contest.
$4.60 is a value price and we’re happy to take it.
Race 4. (15:10) Craig Carmody Maiden (1200m)
#8 – I Am Lethal @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
I Am Lethal is unbeaten from two trials and we’re expecting plenty of money to come for the two-year-old colt.
The son of I Am Invincible has looked good in those trials and his current $2.70 odds should come crashing down on race day.
Barrier nine is tricky but he has ability to overcome it.
Race 5. (15:45) Bruce Compton BM64 (1000m)
#9 – Sunborn @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Edward Cummings-trained three-year-old owns only one win from seven starts, but facing this level of opposition helps.
She has been taking on tough fields in town and her recent trial win at Rosehill came by 1.8 lengths, so she has ability.
$3.30 is a fair price and we’re expecting a big run.
Race 6. (16:20) Adrian Robinson BM64 (1500m)
#4 – Madam Charm @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Madam Charm has missed a win or placing in only one of her five career starts, so she’s a consistent type.
The three-year-old daughter of Charm Spirit scored back-to-back wins earlier this preparation and the well-bred runner looks the goods.
She opened at $6 and has firmed since markets opened, so the early betting signs are good.
Race 1. (12:30) Ladbroke It Maiden (1000m)
#6 – Duty Dynasty @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Duty Dynasty is a half-brother to Hungry Heart and he looked good winning a trial at Cranbourne.
The Busuttin/Young-trained son of Snitzel has the breeding to measure up and we’re expecting his odds to firm even shorter.
Mark Zahra rides and we’re expecting a big effort.
Race 2. (13:00) Mitre 10 Moe Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Atlantic Seas @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Atlantic Seas wasn’t asked for much in her trial at Warwick Farm and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
The Hawkes-trained daughter of Written Tycoon is bred for speed and only the wide draw is a concerning factor. However, she could push forward and show a good kick in the straight.
Her opening odds of $3.10 have been trimmed, so put her on top.
Race 4. (14:00) Bottlemart Moe Maiden (1600m)
#2 – Atomic Rock @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Atomic Rock is getting close to a win after back-to-back placings and only the wide draw is a concern on Thursday.
The four-year-old son of Pierro finished second at Geelong two back before running third at Edenhope, where he was under a length behind the winner.
Damien Oliver rides and that bodes well.
Race 7. (15:30) Saviges Road Fast BM64 (1200m)
#4 – Kamien @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kamien has been backed in from an opening quote of $13 and that is a solid move for a five-year-old gelding.
The son of I Am Invincible hasn’t impressed in two runs back this preparation, but he has upside and he loves running over this distance.
Barrier one is ideal and punters should lock in the value odds available.
