Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:35) Stephen Schofield Maiden (1300m)
#1 – Sleipnir @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sleipnir comes off back-to-back placings at Bendigo and Wyong, which should be good form for this contest.
The Hawkes-trained three-year-old is a well-bred son of More than Ready that has been well-backed to break his maiden status.
Barrier eight is the only concern but he should find a nice spot in running.
Race 2. (13:10) Kim Dougherty Maiden (1500m)
#4 – Jimmy’s Dream @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jimmy’s Dream missed the jump last week and he did well just to run second. It was his fifth second placing from six starts, so he has been expensive for win punters.
We’re giving him one more chance and if he picks the jump better, settling on the speed gives him a much better chance.
$2.30 is a fair price and he should give a good sight.
Race 4. (14:25) Peter Cuddihy Maiden (1000m)
#8 – Eminencia @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to make a winning start to her career is Eminencia, which comes off two trial wins at Gosford and Hawkesbury.
The three-year-old filly won by Hawkesbury by 4.3 lengths earlier this month and she is bred for speed. It’s a good sign and punters get value odds.
Barrier four is ideal and we’re confident of a top debut run.
Race 6. (15:40) Jack Denham Conditional BM68 (1400m)
#9 – Marcassin @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Marcassin is a three-year-old that comes off a heavy track win at Goulburn and he could kick on with it.
The son of Spirit of Boom had indicated a winning run was coming after running second in a quality trial at Randwick. That effort bodes well and he showed good barrier speed.
55.5kg helps and he’s worth having on the ticket.
Race 7. (16:15) Ken Russell BM64 (1600m)
#1 – Sonic Tycoon @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Unbeaten after two starts, Sonic Tycoon is every chance of winning again. The three-year-old won at Gosford last start and has been primed with two recent trials.
The best of them was a second placing at Rosehill two weeks ago and that should top him off nicely for this run.
Drawing the inside barrier suits and money is starting to come.
Race 2. (13:30) OTR Maiden Plate (1300m)
#3 – Capito @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Capito comes off three consecutive third placings and he is long overdue a win after 21 attempts.
The Nathan Hobson-trained four-year-old owns eight placings from 21 starts and he looks ready to pay off punters on Tuesday.
Madison Lloyd takes weight off his back and that helps.
Race 4. (14:30) Stawell Grampians Gate Maiden (2000m)
#5 – Magic Murphy @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old has yet to win from 15 starts, but recent form suggests he’s not far away.
He comes off a third placing at Echuca where he was just 1.6 lengths behind the winner and that should be a good form race.
Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth snapping up.
Race 5. (15:00) Northern Grampians Shire BM64 (3600m)
#5 – Trolleyed @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Trolleyed has enjoyed the longer distances and comes off a two-length victory at Hamilton over 2200m.
It backed up a win at Warracknabeal and although rising to 3600m is never easy, he should appreciate this distance.
He is a grinding type that rarely puts in a bad effort and getting a 2kg claim helps.
Race 7. (16:00) Waacks Bakery BM58 (1100m)
#6 – La Croft @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Corstens-trained four-year-old scored a fresh up win last campaign and a repeat of that would take her close.
She owns a win and two placings from five starts and the win came at this distance. She shows good speed and getting the 3kg claimer is needed.
After opening at $3, punters have shown confidence and she is worth backing.
