Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 2. (13:30) Eureka Concrete Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Citizen @ $2.30 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Citizen is a three-year-old gelding who started his career with back-to-back placings before running seventh at Flemington and sixth at Pakenham.
The son of Street Boss will need some luck from the tricky draw but he appears to have more class than most in this field.
The early betting moves are a good sign.
Race 3. (14:00) Global Turf Maiden Plate (1500m)
#9 – Parazzi @ $2.90 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Parazzi comes off a jumpout win at Ballarat in fine style and that bodes well for her future.
The daughter of Turn Me Loose is another runner that will need luck from a wide draw but she time to find cover from barrier 11.
We’re in her camp and a betting move on race day would be a good sign.
Race 6. (15:30) Hygain Winners Choice BM58 (1500m)
#4 – Wedgetail @ $3.40 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
The McEvoy-trained five-year-old is only a one-time winner but he has been around the mark throughout his career.
He owns eight placings from 18 starts and running at Ballarat should be right up his alley, despite it being his first attempt on the track.
Barrier two is ideal and he has been smashed in betting after opening at $4.50.
Race 7. (16:00) Sportsbet Bet with Mates BM64 (1200m)
#2 – Jabali Ridge @ $6 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Jabali Ridge got back to winning form three back at Kerang, and although it was an easy race, his form since has been good.
The four-year-old son of Jabali gets all favours off the inside draw and punters get excellent each-way odds.
He’s always a risk but he’s worth it.
Race 2. (12:35) Emirates Park Maiden (1300m)
#1 – Kayobi @ $1.75 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Punters have to take short odds for Kayobi but the Sam Cavanagh-trained gelding has plenty of upside.
The three-year-old gelding comes off a solid effort for second at Scone, which was his second consecutive placing from as many starts.
The odds aren’t attractive but he’s a good multi-bet inclusion.
Race 4. (13:50) Pryde’s Easifeed Maiden (1000m)
#2 – Oakfield Duke @ $2.80 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Oakfield Duke comes off a third placing on debut at Wyong and there is plenty to like about that maiden form.
The three-year-old son of Into Mischief was under a half-length behind the winner, which followed consecutive trial wins at Wyong and Gosford.
It’s good form and he’s worth backing.
Race 5. (14:25) Coolmore BM58 (1700m)
#2 – Seahaven @ $2.20 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Seahaven hails from the Paul Messara stable and the three-year-old gelding is seeking back-to-back wins.
The son of Mikki Isle scored by a half-length at Tamworth and there is nothing wrong with that form going forward.
We’re not surprised by the short odds available.
Race 7. (15:40) Arrowfield BM58 (1300m)
#3 – Final Statement @ $9.50 – Bet @ Ladbrokes
Final Statement scored a breakthrough maiden win at Bathurst and the three-year-old gelding could win again.
The son of Press Statement won by a half-length and he has since been primed with a trial effort at Randwick.
Barrier seven is ideal and punters get odds worth snapping up. The $9.50 is unlikely to last very long on race day.
