Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (14:00) Red Funnel Maiden (900m)
#9 – Bat Pad @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bat Pad didn’t run as well as expected on debut but the Hawkes-trained filly has plenty of upside.
She will derive good benefit from that outing and although finishing eighth, not everything went her way.
Money has come for her and that is a good sign.
Race 3. (15:10) Coastline Pools & Spas C1 (1300m)
#5 – Supertanker @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Supertanker is coming off an impressive win at Hawkesbury and she is every chance of going back-to-back.
The Brad Widdup-trained three-year-old won by a half-length and although her only run at Newcastle was a poor performance, she has grown since.
Her opening odds of $5 didn’t last long and the $3.80 could shorten.
Race 4. (15:45) Tab Venue Mode C1 Handicap (1300m)
#4 – Ushindi @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old scored a commanding win on debut at Newcastle and we wouldn’t be jumping off his back here. He scored by 4.5 lengths and the son of Ready For Victory looks set for another stellar performance.
We are surprised that he’s not shorter in the betting but punters get value odds and they are worth taking before the price drops.
Expect another tidy effort from the promising gelding.
Race 5. (16:25) Minder Cloud Services C1 Handicap (1875m)
#3 – Unamerican @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Unamerican is a one-time winner that could have easily scored multiple times. The Freedman-trained gelding has been solid in two runs back from a spell and he has been backed to win.
After opening at $3.40, steady money has come throughout the day and punters are confident that he can notch his second career win.
Race 6. (17:05) Hunter Race Day Maiden (1500m)
#3 – Kutayha @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the four-year-old gelding that has looked good without winning. He has had three starts for two placings, including second placing at Echuca.
The son of Savabeel was only 2.1 lengths behind the winner at Wyong last start and that came behind some smart types.
$3 is a fair price and drawing barrier three is ideal.
Race 3. (13:00) Miranda Park Stud Maiden (1887m)
#11 – Divine Rule @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Divine Rule is nearing a win after two recent placings and this isn’t the strongest maiden field of all time.
The Freedman-trained three-year-old ran second at Pakenham three back before going down by a nose at Bairnsdale last start.
She gets every chance from the barrier draw and with the apprentice claim, so put her on top.
Race 4. (13:35) Bet365 Odds Drift Protect BM58 (1479m)
#6 – Tsugaru @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace team lines up Tsugaru, which was a winner on debut at Swan Hill before running third last start.
His win came by a nose in a diving finish and although beaten last start, he was under a length from the winner in similar track conditions.
Having a strong rider helps in these conditions, so expect a good effort.
Race 7. (15:20) Cams Security BM64 (1887m)
#5 – Bet Red @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bet Red is a consistent five-year-old with a win and six placings from eight starts. The son of Redwood is coming off a placing at Ballarat and that form stacks up nicely.
He handles the wet tracks well with three starts for two placings, and it’s only a matter of time before he notches his second win.
Each-way odds available and punters should take what’s on offer.
Race 8. (15:55) Bet365 Protest Promise BM58 (1118m)
#5 – Deploys Alone @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Deploys Alone has been facing tough fields this season and he should find this slightly easier than those assignments.
The five-year-old by Sepoy is a two-time winner and although punters haven’t had much luck this time in, he hasn’t been far away.
The $2.70 will shorten on race day, so take the value.
