Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:30) Quayclean Maiden Plate (1200m)
#3 – Mugshot @ $1.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mugshot finished second on debut at Kyneton and we think he could go one better on Tuesday.
The four-year-old gelding was under a length from the winner and he doesn’t meet a field of superstars at Mornington.
Barrier one is ideal and punters should take the short odds as they could firm even shorter.
Race 2. (14:00) Catanach’s Jewellers Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Akaka Falls @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Akaka Falls should have won a race by now but the three-year-old gets his best chance on Tuesday.
The Lloyd Kennewell-trained son of Headwater finished second behind Irish Impact on this track last time out and he has been desperately close on multiple occasions.
Getting the inside barrier will see him settle on the speed and he could pinch a winning break.
Race 3. (14:30) TBSC Maiden Plate (1200m)
#10 – Under The Dunes @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Under The Dunes had plenty of support on debut when running second at Ballarat and she didn’t lose many admirers.
She finished a half-length behind the winner and she will only get better with the experience. It was a nice debut and there is market confidence again.
She is another runner with the benefit of the inside draw and she should take full advantage.
Race 6. (16:00) Asset Painting Services C1 (1000m)
#2 – Show Some Decorum @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Freedman-trained three-year-old should have won more than one race but he gets an ideal chance in this event.
He comes off a fourth at Morphettville behind the smart Alleboom and that form stacks up well for a midweek meeting at Mornington.
He has since been gelded and that could help switch him on. Expect a positive outing from the favourite.
Race 7. (16:30) IDS Security BM64 (1200m)
#1 – Frankly Harvey @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old made a good return to racing when running third at Sandown and that is a strong form guide.
He is a Robert Hickmott-trained runner that owns six wins and 14 placings from 47, so he has experience to count on this Tuesday.
Punters always get value odds with Frankly Harvey and that’s the case again here. He should give punters a good sight at the each-way odds.
Race 2. (13:25) Tony Williams Machinery Maiden (1300m)
#4 – Flying Euros @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Flying Euros is always around the mark and the four-year-old deserves a winning turn. He owns 10 placings from 20 starts and it’s only a matter of time before he wins.
Luck will be needed from barrier 10 but he owns a placing from his only attempt at Armidale and track experience could be key.
$3.10 is a price worth taking.
Race 3. (14:05) Maria River Cattle Co C1 (1900m)
#1 – Battle Guardian @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Battle Guardian comes off a much-improved placing at Armidale and natural progression should take him close.
The four-year-old gelding owns a win and three placings from 11 starts, so he hasn’t been too far away throughout his career.
2kg comes off his back for this run and he could have this field covered.
Race 6. (15:50) Debortoli Wines BM58 (1100m)
#4 – Bethpage @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bethpage comes off two wins from her last three starts and she is capable of winning many more.
The daughter of Reward for Effort flashed home last start to score and having a turn-of-foot is ideal at this stage of her career.
Barrier shouldn’t be an issue in these conditions so put her on top.
Race 8. (17:05) Tooheys New BM58 (1300m)
#2 – Alpha Go @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Alpha Go scored a quality win at Gold Coast two back before finishing second at Ipswich last time out.
The three-year-old gelding has been around the mark in all nine career starts, recording two wins and four placings.
We expect him to be right in the thick of the finish again and punters get each-way odds.
