Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) John Duff & Co Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Duty Dynasty @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
There has been a steady flow of money for Duty Dynasty, which opened at $2.35 and has firmed to $2.
The Busuttin/Young-trained son of Snitzel hasn’t had any public trials, so he has clearly been showing talent at home.
Barrier 12 is a concern but he should show plenty of barrier speed.
Race 3. (14:00) Schweppes Maiden Plate (1400m)
#2 – Covent Garden @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Covent Garden doesn’t have a stellar form line, but the former Sydney-based runner has plenty of upside.
The three-year-old filly comes off a disappointing run at Newcastle with Chris Waller before being sent to Peter Moody in Melbourne.
It’s not the strongest field, so she could take advantage.
Race 5. (15:00) Duffy Simon & Co BM58 (1600m)
#2 – Big Darryl @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old comes off back-to-back placings on this track and he looks ready to breakthrough for his third career victory.
He wasn’t far behind a solid field last time out and getting a 2kg claimer in the saddle only helps his chances here.
He opened at $4.50 and solid money has come for him since.
Race 7. (16:00) Spendthrift Australia BM58 (1400m)
#1 – Blood Sweat Tears @ $3 – BET NOW
Looking to cap off consecutive third placings is Blood Sweet Tears, which wasn’t far off them at Bendigo two back before running a short margin behind them at Pakenham.
He was the $1.70 favourite to win and although beaten narrowly, he is good enough to turn the tables and win at longer odds.
Getting 2kg off his back is ideal and he only needs luck from the draw.
Race 8. (16:30) Sportsbet Bet With Mates BM58 (1200m)
#5 – Hilverston @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hilverston turned around some poor form to win at Pakenham last start and he’s capable of producing two on the bounce.
The three-year-old son of Hinchinbrook timed his run perfectly to score and this field isn’t any harder, so he should be able to capitalise.
Barrier two is ideal and we expect a tidy effort.
Race 1. (12:50) HRC Motel Maiden (1400m)
#5 – Law Party @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Law Party has taken on tough fields to date and he should appreciate dropping to Tuesday company.
The Mark Newnham-trained three-year-old comes off a fifth at Warwick Farm and his fitness levels are back, so that will help.
$2.25 isn’t a surprising quote and those odds could firm on race day.
Race 2. (13:25) Blacktown Workers Club C1 (1600m)
#1 – Supremo @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding is only a one-race winner, but he comes off a second placing at Newcastle and that form bodes well.
He has faced tough fields throughout his career and although a touch inconsistent, the son of Written Tycoon has upside.
Expect a more professional effort at this level.
Race 4. (14:40) Lander Toyota Prov & Country Maiden (1100m)
#3 – Sniper Legend @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to improve on his debut second placing is Sniper Legend, which wasn’t far behind the winner at Wyong.
The well-bred son of Capitalist has since placed in a trial and he looks to have a bright future, so we’re not surprised by the short odds available.
We wouldn’t suggest taking lower than $1.90, so lock in the value.
Race 6. (15:50) XXXX Gold BM64 (1300m)
#7 – Command King @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Command King has yet to finish worse than third in four career starts, including a last-start win at Canberra.
The four-year-old son of Epaulette enjoyed racing over longer distances, and although 1300m is short of his best, he won over 1300m on debut.
Punters get value odds for the risk and he’s a runner worth following during the winter.
