Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:00) Wangaratta Chronicle Maiden (1000m)
#4 – Titans @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Titans has looked good in two starts to date, including a third placing on debut at Werribee.
The Freedman-trained three-year-old finished fourth behind See You in Spring and Super Thief, which has subsequently won easily.
He has since won a trial at Cranbourne, so we’re not surprised by the money coming for him.
Race 3. (14:00) Pacific Hire Maiden (1400m)
#11 – Sino Witness @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding by Star Witness has finished fourth in two race day starts, so he has been right around the mark to date.
He was only a half-length behind the winner last start, and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely this preparation.
Barrier two is ideal, so consider.
Race 4. (14:30) Sportsbet Take a Sec Maiden (1590m)
#9 – Aquila Volare @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aquila Volare had good betting support on debut before running fourth behind Sebastian the Fox.
The three-year-old son of Free Eagle was only a length behind the winner, so he shouldn’t have lost any admirers with the run.
He’s in good hands with the Maher/Eustace stable, so consider at each-way odds.
Race 6. (15:30) John Duncan Memorial BM64 (2000m)
#1 – Slipintothis @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Slipintothis is a three-time winner from 12 starts who is good enough to handle this field. He comes off a third placing at Sale, which wasn’t an easy contest.
The son of Proisir is better on a good racing surface, but his turn-of-foot behind Thought of That was encouraging, so we’re sticking with him.
Punters get each-way odds, so the price is right.
Race 7. (16:00) Sign Effects BM64 (1000m)
#5 – Coolshot @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coolshot looked the goods on debut when scoring at Cranbourne by 5.8 lengths. He didn’t fire last start, but we’re giving him another chance against this level of opposition.
The John McArdle-trained four-year-old was only 2.7 lengths behind the winner, and second-placed Zion has since won a race.
It’s good form for this level of racing, so include him in selections.
Race 1. (13:25) Saxbys Drury Distribution Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Hauraki Gulf @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hauraki Gulf has typically been well-backed to win, and Tuesday’s race will be no different. The three-year-old has the talent to exit maiden grades, so he’s worth backing.
He has cost punters a bit so far, but the son of Written Tycoon has more talent than most in this field.
Jockey Alysha Collett has been riding well, so that adds to the appeal.
Race 3. (14:40) Saxbys Soft Drinks Maiden (1300m)
#6 – Olivia Ann @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Olivia Ann didn’t show much on debut at Scone, but the three-year-old quickly turned it around at Tamworth last time out.
The daughter of Sooboog was only a short margin behind Bright Eyed Girl, and she is much shorter in the betting than the $14 offered on that occasion.
Barrier five with 55.5kg on her back is ideal.
Race 4. (15:20) Chill Out Mobile Coolrooms C2 (1000m)
#2 – Winside @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Winside is a four-year-old mare who owns two wins from three starts. She scored her second win at Queanbeyan in April by two lengths, so it was a professional effort.
She then ran fourth at Muswellbrook behind Meiyisti, but she was under a length behind the winner. There is little wrong with that form, so we’re putting her on top.
Her opening odds of $3.30 have been smashed into $2.35, which is a good sign.
Race 6. (16:35) Krambach Cup Friday C3 (1400m)
#4 – Lord Avatar @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lord Avatar comes off a 2.3-length win at Grafton and can add another winning performance.
The five-year-old loves racing at Taree, with six starts for a win and three placings, so the change in track won’t do him any harm.
Ashley Morgan is riding well and we’re expecting a nice effort.
