Thursday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:50) Tac BM64 (2000m)
#7 – Lost Impact @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lindsay Smith-trained mare finished second at Kyneton last start, which followed a win at Casterton.
She hit the line nicely last time out, and the slight rise in distance should give her a good chance of success.
The high weight races should be right up her alley.
Race 5. (15:30) Lifetime Trophies Maiden (1300m)
#6 – Magnetic Jewel @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Magnetic Jewel owns seven placings from 16 starts, and she doesn’t get a better chance to break through than on Thursday.
The daughter of Magnus is a three-time placegetter at Warrnambool, and she should get a nice run in transit from barrier four.
Punters get each-way odds to enjoy.
Race 6. (16:00) Creece Glass & Glazing BM64 (1300m)
#8 – In the Boat @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Drawing wide could make it difficult, but In the Boat hasn’t done much wrong throughout his career.
The Smith-trained runner won on debut before posting three consecutive placings, including one at Warrnambool last start.
He will need things to go his way, but he has been backed from $3.10 into $2.25, which is a serious move.
Race 8. (17:00) Acme Rural Supplies BM64 (1700m)
#1 – Mystery Island @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old hasn’t shown much in two runs back from a spell, but his best form has come on this track.
He owns two placings from two starts at Warrnambool, including a placing behind Minola over a longer distance in March.
Better track conditions are ideal, and punters get odds worth taking.
Race 2. (14:35) Night to Remember Maiden (1100m)
#10 – Oakfield Blossom @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kristen Buchanan lines up the four-year-old mare who looked good at Muswellbrook last time out.
The daughter of Headwater was only a half-length behind the winner last start, and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and we’re happy to see money coming her way.
Race 3. (15:10) Industree Group Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Charity Spirit @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off a solid effort for second at Bathurst is Charity Spirit. She ran fifth behind Dufrense prior to that, which has since run well at a high level.
The daughter of Cable Bay looks to have the class edge over this field, and despite being a maiden runner, she won’t take long to win.
The inside barrier with a light weight should see her go close.
Race 4. (15:50) Narara Plumbing C1 Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Ka Bling @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Snowden-trained three-year-old has yet to finish out of the money, so the consistency is there.
He won two starts back at Wyong by a length before running second behind Sur La Mer at Newcastle last time out.
There has been steady money for him throughout the week and drawing the inside barrier is ideal.
Race 6. (17:05) Eve Electrical BM64 (1000m)
#4 – Satin Ribbons @ $1.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters will have to take short odds for Satin Ribbons, but she looks like a nice type in the making.
The three-year-old daughter of Capitalist won by a length at Newcastle last start, and she never gave them a look-in over the 900m distance.
Drawing barrier 10 will make it harder, but punters should be confident.
