We have expert betting tips for the cards this Tuesday at Muswellbrook and Stony Creek.
Punters can find great value this week and we have our best bets available for the two Tuesday meetings.
Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 2. (13:20) GT Northern Super Crisp Maiden (1280m)
#1 – Mother’s Day @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Drawing barrier 17 shouldn’t be seen as a negative on the heavy track, so Mother’s Day has a good winning chance.
The four-year-old mare owns five placings from seven starts and she has yet to run worse than second from two starts at this distance.
Her opening odds have firmed considerably and that is a good sign.
Race 3. (13:55) Tab Rewards Maiden (1500m)
#13 – Ita @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money has come for Ita and given her effort to run second at Canberra, we’re not surprised by the big move.
She opened at $3.30 and will likely start as the odds-on favourite for trainer Bjorn Bjorg. Her run for second last start was quality and a considerable improvement on her debut.
Drawing the inside barrier bodes well, so take the odds while they’re on offer.
Race 4. (14:35) Tab Maiden Plate (1500m)
#6 – Still In Fashion @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Paul Messara lines up the talented three-year-old that is getting close to a win after consecutive placings.
The son of Redoute’s Choice is bred to be good and although beaten last start, he seemingly handled the heavy track conditions well.
We wouldn’t jump off his back and he should be winning soon.
Race 5. (15:10) Bengalla Mining C2 Handicap (1750m)
#1 – Sonic Tycoon @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sonic Tycoon couldn’t have been more impressive when scoring by three lengths on debut at Hawkesbury.
The son of Written Tycoon capped off solid trial form with the success and we thought he would be shorter in the betting than $2.45.
Punters should take the value before it’s gone.
Race 9. (17:30) Magic Millions Yearling Sale C2 (1000m)
#6 – Rocketing By @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rocketing By has a fair amount of ability and the three-year-old should enjoy this level of racing.
Trained by David Pfieffer, the son of So You Think ran third at Warwick Farm last start and that came behind two very talented types.
His recent trial win at Canterbury is an excellent form guide and he should be winning.
Race 1. (13:30) Pink Roses Maiden (1100m)
#7 – Florescent Star @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Amy and Ash Yargi line up the three-year-old filly that is getting close to a win after consecutive second placings.
The filly by Zoustar ran second at Seymour before finding one better at Moe, but she has been given time to mature in the off-season.
The betting support is a fantastic sign and she should be ready to fire.
Race 3. (14:30) Gippsland Sentinel Times Maiden (2100m)
#4 – Mr Eighty Eight @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mr Eighty Eight did enough when second on debut at Colac to warrant attention at this level.
The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding finished 1.3 lengths behind the winner and he had to sustain a long run from the 500m mark.
Conditions are better at Stony Creek and he should go close to winning.
Race 5. (15:30) Melina Bath MP BM58 (1600m)
#2 – Kansino @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Class is with the four-year-old mare that owns a win and three second placings from seven career starts.
The Maher/Eustace-trained daughter of Zoffany had had two runs this preparation for one placing, which came last-start at Wodonga.
We are expecting form out of that meeting to hold up well and she didn’t get much luck throughout the run on that occasion.
Race 7. (16:30) Meeniyan Liquor BM58 (1000m)
#4 – Ultra Smart @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ultra Smart has lived up to her name on two occasions, but the six-year-old should have won more than she has.
The daughter of Smart Missile also owns nine placings and she has contested tough races throughout her career, so running in BM58 grade won’t worry her.
She is having only her second start for this stable and she should get the job done soon.
