Warwick Farm horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (15:15) Ross Barry Thornton Maiden (1100m)
#13 – Jenga @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Money has come for Jenga, which owns solid trial form. The three-year-old filly scored two wins at Rosehill, with the last coming by a length over Magic Ruler.
There is plenty to like about that form and after opening at $6, she has been heavily backed into $4.80.
Keep watching the tote as we’re expecting more money to come for her throughout the week.
Race 2. (15:50) Sky Racing Active BM72 (1400m)
#1 – More Prophets @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
More Prophets has plenty of class and she looks set for another win. The John Thompson-trained mare owns two wins and five placings from seven starts, so she doesn’t know how to run a bad race.
She comes off a second placing at Randwick behind Betcha Flying, and we’re expecting that form to hold up nicely on Tuesday.
She carries a big weight but having Hugh Bowman in the saddle helps.
Race 3. (16:25) Ranvet BM72 (1200m)
#1 – He’s A Hotshot @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
He’s A Hotshot isn’t in the best of form lately, but he should be able to regain his form against this competition.
The Bjorn Baker-trained five-year-old scored a win four starts back and he finished third two back at Randwick. He wasn’t overly far when seventh last start, so punters should expect something better.
$4.50 is a price worth taking and punters are getting value odds for the risk.
Race 4. (17:00) Impending @ Darley BM64 (1600m)
#7 – Too Much Class @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Too Much Class is living up to her name after posting consecutive wins. They might have come in the country, but she scored them nicely.
Her most recent win came at Orange, where she flashed home late to score with real power. It was an impressive outing and it bodes well for her future.
Barrier two is ideal and punters get generous odds for the talented filly.
Race 5. (17:35) Vinery Stud BM72 (1000m)
#4 – Affinity Beyond @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Luke Pepper-trained mare is in winning form and despite rising in class, she should be tough to hold out.
She owns four wins and two placings from nine starts, including consecutive wins at Canberra. The most recent came by a half-length, and she showed her toughness with the win.
It is another good ride for Hugh Bowman, so have her on your ticket.
Race 6. (18:10) Australia Day Cup (2400m)
#9 – Skymax @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Skymax scored an impressive win at Warwick Farm two starts back, which should be a good form guide for this contest.
The Mark Newnham-trained gelding didn’t win last start, but he didn’t entirely handle the heavy surface. He will be better suited here and punters get value odds.
53kg is ideal and he should be fighting out the finish.
Race 7. (18:45) Tab BM72 (1400m)
#3 – Stormy Rock @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Matthew Dunn lines up the four-year-old gelding that owns two wins and two placings from six starts.
The son of Fastnet Rock looked the goods when winning at Newcastle fresh up, and he followed it up with a second placing on this track.
His opening odds have drifted a touch, but with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle, he should get a dream run throughout.
