Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) IDS Security Maiden (1000m)
#4 – Dreamdust @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dreamdust finished fifth on debut at Bendigo and she should be better for the experience.
The Ellerton/Zahra-trained two-year-old was only 2.8 lengths behind the winner and the early betting support is a good sign.
Drawing the inside barrier is another positive and we expect a big effort.
Race 3. (14:00) Catanach’s Jewellers Maiden (1000m)
#4 – Prince of Mercia @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Clayton Douglas lines up the three-year-old gelding that has finished second in three consecutive races.
The son of Magnus comes off a placing behind Apres La Mer at Sandown and that form bodes well for a maiden contest at Mornington.
He showed a nice turn-of-foot and $2 is a fair price for a promising type.
Race 5. (15:00) Asset Painting Services BM58 (2050m)
#9 – Runaway Train @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money has come for Runaway Train at each-way odds. The Douglas-trained four-year-old comes off a win at Cranbourne and although only scoring by a nose, it was a strong effort.
She has been primed with a trial placing at Cranbourne and she should be tough to beat with the in-form Jamie Kah in the saddle.
She opened at $7.50, so the money has come steadily.
Race 7. (16:00) Thanks Frontline Workers BM58 (1200m)
#4 – Fortune Follows @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old has turned his form around nicely this preparation, which includes a win at Kyneton two starts back.
He scored by 2.3 lengths before finished second by a nose last start. Punters shouldn’t take anything away from that effort and he’s worth sticking with.
Josh Richardson takes 3kg off his back and we’d be surprised if he wasn’t fighting out the finish.
Race 1. (12:50) Johnson and Mongan Maiden (1250m)
#3 – Deora @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Deora has only one placing from nine career starts, but most of those have come in stronger company.
The three-year-old son of Deep Field should appreciate dropping to country level and he was well-supported when finishing fourth last start.
He gets the inside draw, so it’s now or never.
Race 2. (13:25) Eddies Fresh Chickens C3 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Patino Ruby @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly comes off consecutive wins and her most recent win came at Scone by two lengths.
She is a nice type in the making and we could see her at the Country Championships next year. She’s in the right hands and punters haven’t missed her.
$1.90 is short, but she looks more than capable of handling this field second-up.
Race 4. (14:40) Heritage Financial Plan Maiden (1400m)
#11 – Miss Twenty Twenty @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Grant Allard lines up the five-year-old mare that comes off a third placing at Port Macquarie.
The daughter of Domesday was only 2.1 lengths away from breaking maiden grades and it could come on Tuesday.
Carrying only 55kg is ideal and drawing barrier four should see her land in a good position and be tough to get past in the straight.
Race 5. (15:15) Stacks Law Firm C1 Handicap (1600m)
#10 – Lovetheinvasion @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lovetheinvasion is more than capable of hitting back after suffering two defeats. The three-year-old filly won on debut before finishing second at Muswellbrook.
She was heavily backed to win at Wyong last start, but had to settle for fourth. It wasn’t a bad showing and she gets a few things in her favour here.
Barrier three and 55.5kg on her back could do the trick.
