Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:15) Sky Call Lawn Maiden (1000m)
#2 – Tap ‘n’ Run @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Strong money has come for Tap ‘n’ Run, which opened at $3.80 and he has been backed into $2.80.
The three-year-old finished second in a recent trial at Wagga, and that should prove to be a good form guide.
Getting the experience Matthew Cahill in the saddle helps, and barrier five won’t hurt his chances.
Race 3. (14:25) Riverina Lift Trucks BM58 (1200m)
#3 – Halo Warrior @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Halo Warrior scored an impressive win at Albury two starts back and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely.
The four-year-old gelding won by 1.5 lengths, and although beaten last time out at Corowa, that came against a harder field.
Steady money has come and that is a good sign.
Race 4. (15:05) Blazeaid Charity Luncheon Maiden (1600m)
#13 – Without Equal @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Theresa Bateup lines up the four-year-old gelding that has been taking on some tough fields of late, and we’re expecting better.
The son of Curata Storm scored a trial win at Kembla Grange this season, and his form on race day has been solid since.
Seeing tote support is a good sign, so put him on top of selections.
Race 5. (15:40) Laser Plumbing & Electrical C2 (1000m)
#1 – Theresabearinthere @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Theresabearinthere is a speedy type that is better than what he showed at Morphettville last start. However, he faces a much easier field at Wagga this Tuesday.
The three-year-old gelding showed extreme pace in two wins from five starts, and getting 4kg off his back is only going to help.
Look for him to head straight to the front and kick away for the win.
Race 6. (16:15) Country Championship Maiden (1300m)
#6 – Erwin @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Erwin did enough on debut to warrant attention and it shouldn’t take him long to get off the mark.
The three-year-old gelding finished second at Moruya, and he was only a nose from making it a winning debut. If he can repeat that performance, he should be winning.
$1.90 is short but he should firm on race day.
Race 1. (13:30) Royal Hotel Benalla Maiden (1212m)
#3 – Thorogood @ $2.15- Bet @ Sportsbet
Thorogood is on debut after no public trials, but the money has come. The son of Oratorio has clearly showed pace at home because he has been backed into $2.15.
That is a solid push for a debutante, and the Corstens-trained three-year-old could make a winning debut.
Race 3. (14:30) Benalla Toyota Maiden (1412m)
#4 – Wine O’Clock @ $3.70- Bet @ Sportsbet
Patrick Payne lines up the four-year-old that looked good when running second on debut at Warrnambool.
He finished three lengths behind the winner, but it will derive plenty of benefit from the outing. It followed a trial win at Moe, so the pace is there.
Barrier three is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 4. (15:00) Delatite Ford Benalla Maiden (2040m)
#5 – Bury Road @ $2.90- Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old is a well-bred son of Frankel that has progressed nicely throughout his opening campaign.
He finished fifth on debut at Caulfield before improving to run third at Sale. He wasn’t close to the winner, but he got too far back and did well to run on.
It could pay to watch betting moves with this runner.
Race 7. (16:30) Rangedale Drainage BM58 (1212m)
#8 – Lady Magnus @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Lady Magnus, which hasn’t found her best form this season, but she has been facing tough fields.
The six-year-old mare finished third at Moonee Valley two back before running seventh at Sandown. It’s city-class form, and it should bode well for this contest.
She scored a win at her only track and distance start, which is another positive for Lady Magnus.
