Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Hygain Winners Choice Maiden (1200m)
#12 – Tranquil Bay @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Freedman-trained two-year-old worked home nicely to finish second at Sale last start and she won’t take long to get off the mark.
She is a daughter of Cable Bay that has been given time to prepare for this race and having senior rider Craig Newitt in the saddle is ideal.
Barrier 10 isn’t ideal but she has been smashed in betting after opening at $3.80.
Race 2. (13:30) Porter Plant Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Boom Spirit @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Boom Spirit is getting close to a win after three consecutive second placings and he should be right around the mark.
The Hayes-trained three-year-old comes off a second placing at Swan Hill and it’s only a matter of time before he breaks through.
The inside draw is ideal and he will prove tough to beat.
Race 4. (14:30) Polytrack Maiden (1000m)
#10 – Duty Dynasty @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Duty Dynasty has been scratched three times, but he should make his debut at Ballarat on Tuesday.
The Busuttin/Young-trained two-year-old is a well-bred son of Snitzel that has been heavily backed to win on debut.
Barrier 16 doesn’t make it easy, but he gets track conditions to suit and racing on the synthetic track should help.
Race 5. (15:00) Porter Plant BM58 (1100m)
#5 – Telekinesis @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Henry Dwyer-trained four-year-old comes off back-to-back placings and he looks close to posting his second career win.
He wasn’t far behind some nice types last start and getting 2kg off his back is ideal, so we’re expecting a solid effort.
He could firm into favouritism on race day.
Race 8. (16:30) Hygain Winners Choice BM58 (1500m)
#3 – Michante @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Michante made a positive start to her career when winning at Ballarat and she could double down on that effort.
The Maher/Eustace-trained daughter of Americain scored by a nose in a driving finish, so she showed good tenacity and she defeated subsequent winner Fighter.
2kg comes off her back and that could tip the scales in her favour.
Race 1. (12:35) Pirtek Central Coast Maiden (1600m)
#2 – Kiterro @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kiterro is a three-year-old filly that comes off four consecutive placings and she meets an even betting field.
The Chris Waller-trained daughter of Pierro has been tough for punters to follow, but she deserves a win after going close.
Her odds opened at $2.15 and she could firm into an odds-on quote.
Race 2. (13:15) Pluim Group Maiden (1000m)
#5 – Tocomah @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Garry Frazer lines up the three-year-old son of Toronado that comes off an effortless trial win at Hawkesbury.
He scored easily by 4.5 lengths and although it was only a trial, it bodes well for future racing and he hasn’t been missed in the betting.
He opened at $3.20, so the betting move has been steady.
Race 4. (14:25) Tanti Financial Services C1 (1200m)
#3 – Eye See Things @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Eye See Things scored a win fresh up before notching four consecutive placings, so she is more than capable of winning.
The daughter of Star Witness will enjoy the 2kg coming off her back and she looks to have the ability edge over this field.
$2.50 is worth taking.
Race 6. (15:40) Gosford It BM64 (1600m)
#6 – Jimmy’s Dream @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jimmy’s Dream comes off a third placing at Warwick Farm and that form must be considered at this level.
The Waterhouse/Bott-trained three-year-old had broken maiden grades at Kembla Grange prior to that, so his form reads well.
He is one of the best-backed runners of the day after opening at $3.20, so punters should feel confident of a big effort.
