Race 3 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R3 #1 – Very interested in this horse resuming today. Has trialled up solidly without the blinkers on – they very importantly go back on for race day. Think he looks the ideal type to travel up in behind the leaders here and let down powerfully over the sprint trip. The small query against though is the rail in the +8m position and a Good 3 surface – it can be very difficult to run on. Cosmic Powers, the early favourite does look to land in a prominent position and should improve fitness wise – but looks very short at the $1.70 quote. Mossman Gorge the other query runner – draws awkwardly and may be forced to push or get caught wide. The two favourites being a little vulnerable and some early pressure should also play into Exclamation’s hands.
SUGGESTED BETTING: 3 Units Exclamation @ $7 with Bet365/Sportsbet/Luxbet (Happy to take $6 or better) – 1 Unit Quinella Cosmic Powers/Exclamation (Take with a corporate if at all possible)
Pretty vanilla meeting at Taree. Not enough value to have a bet – but if playing there were a few that were borderline. Bracketed price is what I assessed the horse.
Race 2 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R2 #10 Price Of Darci ($2.30) – First starter from the powerful Tim Martin camp. Looks extremely well placed on debut to be going close from the soft draw. If it can hold a forward position – should be in the finish. Manhatten Gambler just has too solid a setup to have total confidence in Pride of Darci – blinkers go on today and can improve. The rest of the field look extremely limited.
Race 4 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R4 #2 Ahalf ($2.50) – On debut for the new stable here. Has trialled up very well twice whilst in the care of Kim Waugh – draws ideally to lead or box seat and hard to see it out of the finish.
Race 6 Tips & Bet Suggestions
R6 #3 Lunar Spin ($5) & #6 Nissile ($5) – Looks good pressure here and these horses look to get the right runs behind the speed. Nissile especially looked value this morning at $10 (unfortunately went right off) – Lunar Spin looked the saving option. If they get back out in the market – they are worth looking at.
