Tuesday horse racing tips
Race 2. (13:35) Mark Bloomer Transport C1 (1100m)
#1 – Star Magnum @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Star Magnum looks to have a bright future, and although his recent runs have been poor, he can’t hit back.
The four-year-old son of Magnus scored a win on debut before running fourth at Gosford. He has since recorded a trial placing at Grafton, so that bodes well.
Punters get value odds considering his talent.
Race 4. (14:50) Smec Australia BM58 (2200m)
#3 – Star Quest @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Star Quest is a two-time winner this preparation, including last time out at Bowraville.
The win might have come against easier opposition, but he was dominant in winning by 2.5 lengths. It was his second win in six starts, so the confidence is high.
Bookmakers are offering each-way odds.
Race 5. (15:25) McKimms Real Estate C3 Handicap (1175m)
#1 – Tara Jasmine @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tara Jasmine is unbeaten in three starts at Grafton, so we’re prepared to overlook her most recent effort at Randwick.
The four-year-old daughter of Cowboy Blue scored by 1.8 lengths on this track two back before facing Highway Handicap opposition and running down the track.
She’s better than that, and she should handle this field.
Race 6. (16:05) Grafton Gas & Plumbing Maiden (1400m)
#5 – Gobbled @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Gobbled has finished second in two of his last three starts, including a last-start placing at Armidale.
The three-year-old son of Star Witness wasn’t able to run down the winner as a $1.85 chance, but punters get much better odds this time around.
Steady money is coming for him, so expect a nice effort.
Race 7. (16:40) Fidelity Capital Feed Win C1 (1400m)
#1 – Rapids @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking for back-to-back wins is Rapids, who broke through for his maiden victory at Lismore last time out.
The four-year-old ran as a $1.22 favourite, so the $1.80 is a value price and punters are likely to back him steadily on race day.
The 3kg claim is ideal, so put him on top.
Race 2. (13:30) MC Security Maiden (1450m)
#1 – Big Friday @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old finished seventh on debut at Bendigo but quickly improved his form when running second and third at Pakenham.
He was only a nose behind Deepstrike two back before running a half-length behind the winner as a $1.65 chance.
Punters get better odds here, so include for value.
Race 3. (14:00) C&M Build Group Maiden (1600m)
#6 – My Brilliant Choix @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
My Brilliant Choix has yet to win from seven starts, but the four-year-old has been going close of late.
She finished second at Bendigo three back before running third at Geelong earlier this month. Those efforts hold her in good stead for this contest.
Barrier 11 isn’t a concern over this distance and $4 is worth taking.
Race 5. (15:00) Bet365 Racing Refunds Maiden (2000m)
#3 – Cheryl’s Lad @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off consecutive second placings to start his career is Cheryl’s Lad, who has been firmly backed with bookmakers.
The son of Sharkbite finished second on debut at Cranbourne as a $51 chance before running a half-length behind Not a Problem at Geelong.
That form bodes well and his opening odds of $4.80 have been taken.
Race 6. (15:30) Hanson Cleaning Services BM58 (2000m)
#3 – Mystique Falcon @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mystique Falcon capped off solid form with a win at Pakenham last start, which could kick-start his career.
The four-year-old mare showed a fine turn-of-foot to score by a nose, and dropping back in distance shouldn’t worry her.
1.5kg comes off her back to help with the big weight.
