Thursday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:30) Neds Split Multis Maiden (1500m)
#8 – Hyderabad @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old didn’t fire on debut but he improved to run fourth at Geelong last time out.
He is a son of Sebring who has been well-backed to win both starts, and we’re not surprised to see punters come for him again.
A maiden win isn’t too far away, so keep safe.
Race 2. (14:00) Neds Toolbox Maiden (1200m)
#6 – Bankroll @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bankroll runs on debut for Team Freedman after finishing well for third in a recent Cranbourne trial.
The well-bred son of Capitalist looked to have a nice action despite running on a heavy track, and it’s good to see money coming for him.
He gets the inside draw and we expect his odds to firm.
Race 4. (15:00) Neds Blended Multis Maiden (1000m)
#10 – Rubirock @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rubirock finished a short margin behind the winner at Sale last start, which is an excellent form guide for this race.
The Kavanagh-trained three-year-old has been knocking on the door, and he’s not taking on the toughest field he’ll ever face.
Barrier three is ideal and we’re happy with the $2.70 available.
Race 6. (16:00) Neds Same Race Multi C1 Handicap (1500m)
#2 – Love Takes Time @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old scored a narrow win on debut at Moe before being sent for a spell, which is typically a good sign.
She is a very well-bred daughter of Galileo, who backed up an impressive trial with the win, so she clearly has ability.
After opening at $2.20, her odds have drifted, so put on top.
Race 1. (13:20) Pluim Group Maiden (1100m)
#3 – Adios @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off back-to-back second placings is Adios, who shouldn’t take long to break through at this level.
The three-year-old son of Snitzel was only a half-length behind the winner at Wyong, which bodes well for this race.
$1.80 is on the shorter side, but we’re happy to take those odds.
Race 3. (14:35) Eve Electrical BM64 (1600m)
#3 – Comme Bella Fille @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare looked good in a recent trial at Randwick, which suggests she could make a winning return.
She won at Wyong in June before heading for a spell, and despite the mile being short of her best, seeing betting support is a good sign.
She looks ready to go and the $3.70 is worth taking.
Race 4. (15:10) Central Coast Granite Maiden (1200m)
#3 – Hold on Honey @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old finished second on debut at Hawkesbury before disappointing last start, but he’s on the quick back-up here.
He got a touch too far back in the run before hitting the line strongly, so the run was better than it looked on paper.
Tim Clark rides off the inside draw, so expect a positive ride.
Race 7. (17:05) Narara Plumbing Maiden (1000m)
#1 – Rick’s Mania @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rick’s Mania has looked good at the trials, winning both attempts at Warwick Farm.
The four-year-old gelding scored the most recent trial by six lengths, which is an impressive effort.
He opened at $3.20 and has since drifted to $3.80, which is a concern. However, it’s an open field of mostly debutantes, and he gets Hugh Bowman in the saddle.
