Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Ballarat Antenna Solutions Maiden (1200m)
#4 – The Defiant One @ $1.75 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding should have won a race by now, but he gets his best chance on Tuesday at Ballarat.
He comes off a second placing on the track where he ran 1.8 lengths behind Cardinal Gem, which has since raced in Saturday-grade company.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and he should justify his short odds.
Race 2. (13:30) Cressbells Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Rock Melody @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We’re hoping the form of The Defiant One stacks up nicely for this race. Rock Melody finished third behind Cardinal Gem and The Defiant One last start, and that should be a good form race.
The two-year-old filly owns two placings at Ballarat and she got too far back last start, so we expect jockey Harry Coffey to settle her closer to the pace.
$2.60 is a fair price in this race.
Race 4. (14:30) Polytrack Maiden (1500m)
#8 – Zoudini @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zoudini placed at his first three starts before finishing fourth behind Nabbed at Ballarat last time out.
The four-year-old son of Zoustar looked better when finishing second fresh up and a repeat of that performance should see him winning.
He’s almost five and he should be getting off the mark.
Race 7. (16:00) Sportsbet Bet With Mates BM58 (1200m)
#3 – Martini Special @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jerome Hunter lines up the three-year-old that is better than a one-win type. She comes off a fifth at Mornington and she was only a nose behind the winner at Sale prior to that.
The daughter of Super One gets a valuable 2kg off her back and we’re not surprised by the amount of money coming her way.
Expect her odds to shorten on race day.
Race 8. (16:30) Hygain Winners Choice BM58 (1000m)
#7 – Madame Bolli @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Madame Bolli is searching for three consecutive wins after scoring at Sale and Ballarat. The three-year-old filly comes off a half-length victory and she looks well-placed on the synthetic surfaces.
The daughter of Written Tycoon may have taken 11 starts to break maidens, but she looks likely to kick on with it and the 2kg claim helps.
Race 1. (12:50) Valued Members Renew Maiden (1300m)
#3 – Full Coverage @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Full Coverage didn’t show much in two starts but his recent trial was encouraging and he has been well-backed.
The three-year-old son of Deep Field scored a trial win by two lengths at Wyong and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely.
Barrier two suits and his opening odds have been slammed.
Race 3. (14:05) XXXX C2 Handicap (1600m)
#6 – Miss Twenty Twenty @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Grand Allard-trained five-year-old took 25 starts to get her first win and she has now put two together.
She won by 1.5 lengths at Quirindi two back and followed it up with a narrow win at Tamworth last start. Rising in grade again won’t be easy, but the confidence levels are sky high.
Punters get each-way odds and she’s worth following.
Race 5. (14:40) M E Haulage Curlewis Cup (1400m)
#5 – Jaja Chaboogie @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jaja Chaboogie didn’t fire at Newcastle last start but that came against some smart types and she should find this slightly easier.
The daughter of Your Song looked good winning her two previous races at Port Macquarie and Tamworth. She gets 55kg on her back and that is another positive.
It could pay to watch late betting moves.
Race 6. (15:55) Mannion Drilling BM66 (1000m)
#7 – Fox Spirit @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fox Spirit comes off a disappointing effort at Coonamble, but we liked the way she scored at Wellington two back.
The four-year-old daughter of Foxwedge won by 1.5 lengths and it showed that she can handle rain-affected tracks, which is a positive.
3kg comes off her back.
