Thursday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:30) 3NE & Edge FM Maiden (1170m)
#9 – Polyphonic @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Polyphonic hasn’t had any trials but the two-year-old filly has been heavily backed to win on debut.
That is a good sign, especially from the Freedman barn. She is a well-bred daughter of Deep Impact that could make a winning debut.
It could pay to follow any late betting moves.
Race 3. (13:30) Pacific Hire Maiden (2000m)
#4 – Domfiore @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tony Noonan lines up the three-year-old gelding that comes off a career-best second placing at Echuca.
The son of Fiorente was only a length behind the winner and we’re expecting form out of that race to stack up nicely.
He is taking his time to break through, but punters get a good price and he’s worth sticking with.
Race 5. (14:30) RMBL Investments BM64 (1400m)
#2 – Raise ‘em Up @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding comes off a win at Kilmore on a heavy surface and he could go back-to-back.
He scored easily by 3.5 lengths and although yet to fire in two runs at this distance, we’re confident of a big effort.
2kg comes off his back and it’s not the strongest field, so he could take advantage.
Race 6. (15:00) Wangaratta Chronicle BM64 (1170m)
#1 – El Salto @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
El Salto has the class edge on this field and dropping in class could have immediate results. The three-year-old comes off a run at Caulfield in open company.
It was a poor showing, but dropping in grade is ideal and he comes off a trial win at Tatura, so he looks forward for this run.
60.5kg shouldn’t worry him over this distance and punters should take the $3.40 before it drops.
Race 9. (16:30) Happy 60th Ken Leiper BM64 (1590m)
#3 – Jenkins @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jenkins runs at value odds after threatening to score this preparation. The son of Pierro owns two placings this time in and the change in track could help.
He is a three-time winner overall and his recent third placing at Cranbourne suggested he’s close to getting back to that form.
$5 is well worth taking in the final race.
Race 1. (12:10) Wyong Roos Foundation Maiden (1000m)
#7 – Walkin’talkin @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Gary Portelli-trained two-year-old comes off a fourth on debut and he should improve with the outing.
He was only a length behind the winner in a close finish and it followed on from a trial win at Hawkesbury, so he has ability.
Most of the early support has come for the favourite, so include him in selections.
Race 2. (12:45) Bellbirds Maiden Handicap (1100m)
#1 – Comonic @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding is getting close to scoring a maiden win after consecutive placings.
He ran third on debut at Scone before missing by a short margin at Gosford last time out. Running at Wyong should suit and we’re not surprised by the odds.
He opened at $2.70 and has been firmly backed throughout the week.
Race 4. (13:55) We Care Connect C1 (2100m)
#9 – Comme Bella Fille @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Comme Bella Fille comes off a tidy second placing at Newcastle and we expect that form to hold up well at this level.
The John O’Shea-trained filly by Complacent should appreciate the rise in distance and she is bred to enjoy racing over 2100m.
$2 is getting short but punters should have confidence.
Race 7. (15:45) Wyong Roos Foundation BM64 (1350m)
#6 – Explosive Truth @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Explosive Truth is a consistent type that owns one win and five second placings from nine career starts.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained four-year-old comes off a second placing at Kembla Grange and that came behind a smart type.
$4.40 is a value price from bookmakers and he should go close.
