Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:25) Suez Maiden Plate (1000m)
#9 – Turquoise Hope @ $2.75 – Bet Now
Phillip Stokes lines up the debutante that did enough in a recent trial to suggest that it could win here.
The two-year-old colt by Snitzel has been best-backed for this race and he is bred to show good early speed.
The betting move from an opening quote of $2.90 is worth noting and a solid debut run is expected here.
Race 3. (13:30) Polytrack Maiden Plate (1400m)
#1 – Drain the Swamp @ $4.60 – Bet Now
Drain the Swamp wasn’t too far behind them at Ballarat last start and this field isn’t very deep.
The four-year-old gelding has two placings from eight starts and although yet to win a race, it won’t take him long to break maiden status.
Punters are getting each-way odds and they are worth taking.
Race 4. (14:00) Ac Accounting Maiden Plate (1100m)
#12 – Queen Ryker @ $1.75 – Bet Now
Punters will have to take short odds around Queen Ryker but she looks to have this field covered. The Snowden-trained filly finished fourth on debut at Moonee Valley and that’s a great form guide.
The well-bred daughter of Exceed and Excel gets every chance with 55.5kg on her back and jumping from barrier three helps.
Her opening odds of $1.90 were taken and she could start even shorter.
Race 6. (15:00) Porter Plant BM58 (1200m)
#7 – Touch of Paradise @ $3.80 – Bet Now
The three-year-old is coming off her worst performance but she is capable of bouncing back. She finished last of 12 runners at Swan Hill, but punters should expect a better effort.
She has finished in the money in six of her 11 starts and her effort two back at Stawell was a much better performance.
$3.80 is well worth taking and she shouldn’t be far away from them.
Race 7. (15:30) Hygain Winners Choice BM58 (1400m)
#1 – Aleda @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Aleda has more ability than most in this field and it won’t take her long to get back to winning form.
Trained by team Maher/Eustace, the daughter of Dissident scored a maiden win at Murtoa last year before running behind some quality types.
She has drawn wide here but punters should get a good sight with Aleda.
Race 1. (12:10) Tab Maiden Plate (1300m)
#8 – Pitjara @ $1.85 – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up the three-year-old filly that looks set to go close. She is coming off back-to-back placings at Newcastle and that form stacks up nicely.
Her most recent placing came behind a smart midweek type and she is only going to improve with that run under the belt.
The odds are short but this field isn’t deep and she has her hoof on the till.
Race 2. (12:45) Sky Channel Maiden (1100m)
#8 – Coat of Arms @ $2.80 – Bet Now
Coat of Arms has been best-backed in this race and he should prove tough to hold out. The Snowden-trained colt ran fifth as the odds-on favourite last start, but punters could get their money back.
He is a son of I Am Invincible that looks to have the class edge over this field. The $2.80 could shorten on race day, so take the value on offer.
Race 4. (13:55) Mounties Group Maiden (1400m)
#2 – Sole Heir @ $4 – Bet Now
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained colt has taken on tough fields to date and this is a lot easier. He is coming off a tough run at Canterbury where he showed good speed.
His start prior was a fourth behind Aim, which has subsequently raced in stakes races. He won’t take long to break through in maiden grade and punters are getting great odds.
$4 is well worth taking and he jumps from a good draw.
Race 6. (15:10) Lander Toyota C2 Handicap (1600m)
#1 – Foxborough @ $5 – Bet Now
Foxborough has been tough to follow this season but her form has been solid overall. She is still only a three-year-old and this will be her 17th start.
She isn’t lacking in race fitness and she has finished in the money in nine of her 16 starts. Drawing barrier 13 won’t make much difference and $5 is a fair price.
