Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 2. (13:50) Turangga Farm Maiden (1300m)
#10 – Royal Shakespeare @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Royal Shakespeare had support on debut and although beaten, he wasn’t too far away when finishing sixth.
It was a competitive debut field and the Annabel Neasham stable is firing lately, so we wouldn’t rule out any runner.
Since markets opened, his price has moved out from $4.20. However, he should give punters a good sight on Tuesday.
Race 4. (15:05) Exceedance @ Vinery C1 Handicap (900m)
#1 – Miss Kono @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miss Kono comes off a win at Newcastle and we have been seeing quality form come out of Newcastle this season.
The three-year-old filly likes to roll along in front, which is a good asset to have. She is a well-bred daughter of Star Witness that could rise through the grades now.
Senior rider Christian Reith rides and that is another positive.
Race 5. (15:45) Capitalist @ Newgate BM58 (1000m)
#2 – Safaris @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old son of Animal Kingdom burst through the field to score at Tamworth last start and he could rise through the grades now.
It was his second win from 11 starts and his first career win came on this track. He has had three starts at Scone for a win and a placing, so this track is ideal.
Barrier 11 doesn’t help but punters should expect a positive effort.
Race 6. (16:25) Hellbent @ Yarraman Park Maiden (1000m)
#10 – Benyatta @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money has come for Benyatta, which opened at $3.40 and touched $3.50 at one stage.
The Hawkes-trained filly scored a win at her only trial, and she looks to have plenty of ability in the early stages of her career.
She is a daughter of Headwater, so the breeding is impressive and the $3 quote still represents value.
Race 7. (17:05) Merchant Navy @ Coolmore BM58 (1300m)
#3 – Fleet Air Arm @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fleet Air Arm scored an impressive 2.5-length win at Port Macquarie on debut and he could repeat the dose on Tuesday.
The son of Rich Enuff capped off impressive trial form and with the 2kg coming off his back, he looks to have a great chance of going unbeaten.
$3.40 is a price worth taking.
Race 1. (13:30) Vale Col Lawry Maiden (1600m)
#6 – Slipintothis @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Slipintothis comes off a moderate run for fourth at Wangaratta, but there is plenty of improvement to come.
The Patrick Payne-trained four-year-old owns two placings from three starts and it shouldn’t take him long to break through for the win.
His opening odds of $2.15 have been taken, which is a good sign.
Race 2. (14:00) Bet365 Top Tote Plus Maiden (1300m)
#3 – I Am Mamwaazel @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
I Am Mamwaazel is overdue a winning turn after notching back-to-back third placings this preparation.
The Lindsay Park-trained three-year-old battled on nicely at Pakenham last start and we’re expecting that form to hold out nicely.
$2.70 is a fair price and we expect money to come for him throughout the week.
Race 5. (15:30) Cadd Constructions BM64 (975m)
#4 – Frederick The Dane @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lindsay Park-trained gelding didn’t fire fresh up but he meets an easier field here and a second career win is coming.
He owns one win and three placings from seven starts, including two placings at this distance. Drawing barrier four is ideal and money is coming.
He opened at $3.40 and he could firm to around $2.60 come race time.
Race 6. (16:00) Jarrod Arentz Electrical BM64 (2400m)
#2 – The Mockingbird @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Mockingbird showed good speed to win back-to-back races earlier this campaign, so she should go close with a repeat effort.
Her form since has been only fair, but she doesn’t meet a red-hot field here and she could take advantage.
She is used to carrying big weights, so the 60.5kg isn’t a worry.
