Wyong horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:45) Kim Waugh Racing Maiden (1200m)
#7 – Doppelpunkt @ $1.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The John O’Shea-trained four-year-old is the odds-on favourite to win following some solid performances.
She finished sixth on debut at Newcastle before running fourth at Canterbury. Both runs were full of merit, and dropping to provincial level should help her cause.
Drawing the inside barrier is a positive, and we’re not surprised by the odds available.
Race 2. (14:20) Kristen Buchanan Racing Maiden (1350m)
#5 – Bytact @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters get value for Bytact, which has been allowed time to recover from a disappointing debut at Gosford.
The son of Spill The Beans had no support on debut, but he won a trial at Rosehill to prepare for this race, so expect a better run.
Kaptive is the odds-on favourite, but there is no value in that price.
Race 3. (14:55) Tracey Bartley Racing Maiden (1350m)
#7 – Blaze Seven @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Blaze Seven ran second on debut and although her recent form hasn’t been as good, she has been taking on tough fields.
The daughter of Sacred Falls finished seventh at Canterbury last start, but she was only 2.2 lengths behind the winner.
Her odds are drifting with bookmakers, but she should be tough to hold out against this level of opposition.
Race 4. (15:30) Mark Cross Racing Maiden (1000m)
#9 – Sniper Legend @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sniper Legend enters his debut run with two impressive trial performances, so we’re not surprised by the money coming.
The Matthew Vella-trained colt placed in both Rosehill trials, and it’s his first trial that sparks interest. He finished third behind Golden Slipper fancy Remarque, with Ranch Hand running second.
There is no stronger form guide from the trials, so consider his chances here.
Race 5. (16:05) Allan Denham C1 Handicap (1100m)
#3 – Colonel @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Colonel is looking to bounce back after finishing a disappointing last at Rosehill. He has the ability to hit back here, and the Snowden stable is always good at getting horses back to their best.
The son of Snitzel owns a win and multiple placings from only five starts, so he has made a positive start to his career.
Tim Clark rides from barrier three, so expect a good effort.
Race 6. (16:40) Happy Retirement S Thomas BM68 (1300m)
#2 – Derbari @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Joe Pride lines up the four-year-old son of Dundeel that doesn’t know how to run a bad race. He owns two wins and six placings from 11 starts, including a placing on this track.
He comes off a second placing at Warwick Farm, where he finished only a length behind Deference. That race should be a good form guide, and the slightly improved track conditions help.
After opening at $3.20, there has been plenty of money come. He could start much shorter on race day, so take the value.
Race 7. (17:15) Jeff Englebrecht Racing BM64 (1350m)
#5 – No Laughing Matter @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
No Laughing Matter comes off consecutive victories at Taree, and that form shouldn’t be overlooked at this level.
The Kris Lees-trained filly scored by four lengths two back, and following it up with a short-margin victory. Both runs came on a heavy surface, but she shouldn’t find the firmer track.
She is a daughter of Exosphere, and getting a 3kg claimer in the saddle only helps her chances of winning three in a row.
