Valiant Elegance | (Happy Valley Race 6 No.11)

This son of Salade was fantastic last start after almost two months off, winning in tremendous fashion by 1.8 lengths. What makes the win even better was the 59kg he carried in the race and he was still able to put them away with ease, thanks to the brilliant Hewitson/Whyte combination. He steps up to Class 3 now which means he drops to 52kg and the draw isn’t the work as he should still be able to sit in the front four. He is an attractive price and well worth a chance.

Current Price: $7.50 / $2.60

Best Each Way

Casa Kingdom | (Happy Valley Race 4 No.10)

Casa Kingdom is another I like who is stepping up in grade following a nice win. The son of Dundeel was also first-up when winning his Class 5 event by 0.8 of a length after coming from the second half of the field. Karis Teetan will take the reins here as he drops to 52kg and a favourable draw might see him settle a touch closer in the run. This isn’t a very deep Class 4, and I see him as a terrific chance at each-way odds.

Current Price: $13.00/$3.80

Horse Racing Tips: VIC Friday 19th April 2024

Key Comments The rail is in 4 metres from the 1000m-380m mark and true for the remainder. The best bet looks primed to break through. Best Bet Elba ( Cranbourne Race 2 No. 6 ) Boasts 4 placings to date, all of them in some decent company and now Elba gets its chance to breakthrough. Tackles this off a freshen up, comes up with the pole position and looks poised to give this race a red hot shake. Analyst: Bryce Parker

Horse Racing Tips: QLD Saturday 20th April 2024

Key Comments The feature races are the Ascot Quality Handicap (race 8) and the Daybreak Lover (race 9). The track is Good and the rail is +1 metre the entire circuit. Best Bet Iverson (Eagle Farm Race 4 No. 10) Iverson has had 3 starts since joining the Robert Heathcote stable for 2 wins and a runner-up. He won by 2.5 lengths here last start and should go well again with a 2kg claim and good barrier. Check odds on SmartB Analyst:

Horse Racing Tips: SA Saturday 20th April 2024

Key Comments The feature is the H C Nitschke Stakes (race 8). The track is rated Good and the rail is in the true position. Best Bet Fancify (Morphettville Race 9 No. 8) Fancify resumes after 20 weeks and was won both her previous first-up starts. She’s only missed the quinella once in 7 starts and should be hard to catch. Check odds on SmartB Analyst: Jo Jackson Each Way Trumpsta (Morphettville Race 3 No. 7)

Horse Racing Tips: QLD Friday 19th April 2024

Key Comments There's a massive 10 race meeting. The track is Soft and the rail is +0.5 metres from the 700m-300m and true for the remainder. Best Bet Unleash (Gatton Race 5 No. 6) Unleash was a winner at Toowoomba two starts back then got in all sorts of bother last start when she was slowly away, over-raced, bumped and held-up but still managed to grab 3rd. If she is ridden forward she should be hard to catch. Check odds on SmartB
