Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:20) Welcome to the Bool Maiden Hurdle (3200m)
#3 – Field of Lights @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Symon Wilde-trained four-year-old makes his jumping debut and we like his chances of winning.
He comes off a fourth placing at Warrnambool and his jumping trials have consisted of a four-length win and a second placing.
Despite his opening odds drifting from $2.25, he should be tough to beat and he’s the fit runner of the field.
Race 3. (12:20) G Taylor Memorial Maiden (3200m)
#8 – Mawaany Machine @ $1.65 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The eight-year-old comes off a third placing on the flat at Flemington and he should take to jumps racing.
He is a Maher/Eustace-trained import that has been tough to beat on the flat, let alone against this level of opposition over jumps.
Having flat pace is ideal for maiden hurdles and we’re not surprised by the short odds.
Race 5. (13:45) Callaghan Motors Gold Strike (1000m)
#7 – New York Baby @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
New York Baby is a well-related two-year-old that comes off an impressive jumpout trial win.
The daughter of Written Tycoon looks to have a nice action and she is related to a Group 2 winner, which always helps at this level.
Damien Oliver rides and $4.20 is a value price.
Race 6. (14:20) Scotty Stewart Brierly Steeplechase (3450m)
#3 – Flying Agent @ $1.85 – Bet @ Sportsbet
There have been sizable bets for Flying Agent, which opened at $3.20 and has firmed into an odds-on quote.
The eight-year-old is a seven-time winner, including a 2.3-length hurdle win at Hamilton last time out. He owns a win at Warrnambool and he rarely runs a bad race over jumps.
He likes the distance and he’s our clear top pick for the feature.
Race 8. (15:30) Magic Millions National Sale Handicap (1700m)
#7 – Chantrea @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Getting close to posting another win is Chantrea, which ran third at Bendigo behind The Stylist last time out.
The Lindsay Smith-trained four-year-old is unbeaten in two starts at this distance and she’s a smart type at her best.
Money should come on race day and she could start much shorter in the betting.
Race 1. (12:20) HRC Hotel Maiden Handicap (1300m)
#2 – I Survived @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
I Survived is on debut after some pleasing trial runs and it’s good to see betting support.
The Adam Duggan-trained three-year-old finished second in a trial at Gosford and having Tim Clark in the saddle helps.
It could pay to watch betting moves on race day.
Race 2. (12:55) Windsor Rotary Maiden Plate (1100m)
#8 – Poignant @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Poignant comes off consecutive placings at Gosford and Newcastle, which is solid form for this level of racing.
The three-year-old daughter of Exceed and Excel was only 1.7 lengths behind the winner last start and it’s the best form for this contest.
$2.10 is a fair price, which should remain solid.
Race 4. (14:05) Blacktown Workers Club Maiden (1800m)
#7 – Quiet Michael @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
There was support for Quiet Michael at Canterbury last start and that’s a much stronger form race than what he faces here.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old finished second behind Yangtze Rapids, which has since contested a good grade on Saturday.
He shouldn’t take long to break maidens.
Race 7. (16:05) Elite Sand & Soil BM64 (1100m)
#8 – Miracle Street @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miracle Street comes off a 3.5-length maiden win at Kembla Grange and she looks like a type that could rise through the grades.
The four-year-old has experience on the track when running second on debut and that rates well for this contest.
It’s another good ride for Tim Clark and he could get the job done.
