If you’re heading for Canberra races today don’t forget to congratulate bookmaker Roger Norton for being recognised for his contribution to racing with a race in Sydney named after him last Saturday.
Miss Ostend (Canberra Race 7 No. 5)
This three-year-old Zoustar filly trained by Norm Gardner won once this preparation at Wagga three runs back and finished 2.1 lengths 2nd over 1200m at Gosford last start on 9 June. She gets a 2kg claim, has won here before and handles soft going. Looks ready to win again.
Drummin (Canberra Race 6 No. 7)
Lee & Cherie Curtis train this four-year-old Robick mare who has one win and 10 places from 15 starts. She won her maiden at Canberra back in March and has placed 5 out of 6 on soft going. Perfectly drawn she looks a great each-way bet with that high place rate.
Best Bets Our Randwick-Kensington Horse Racing Tips for this Wednesday's midweek meeting. You can find all of Josh Reed’s articles by clicking here. Glacier Queen | (Randwick-Kensington Race 8 No.7) Happy to stick with this Vancouver filly as she steps out of maiden grade for the first time. She over-raced two runs ago at Warwick Farm but still ran some good sectionals home when a 3.3 length third to Pretty Wild, who has since run well in Saturday grade. Last start on a much kinder surface, Hugh Bowman put
Best Bets Our Townsville Horse Racing Tips for the 28th of June. Sarandos (Townsville Race 5 No. 3) Sarandos is nicely placed in this field. It is unbeaten over the distance, trialled well and has a strong fresh record. The map looks nice for Sarandos and it has already proven its self at this level. $7.00 Each Way Star Midfielder (Townsville Race 6 No. 3) Star Midfielder has always shown glimpses of talent but tended to mix its form in Victoria.
Our Taree Horse Racing Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Best Bets Bay Of Kotor (Taree Race 9 No. 5) Bay Of Kotor was awfully unlucky last start when racing in restricted room along the rails. It was well tried and powered past the winner of the race across the line. Well placed here, drawn to perfection and hopefully Aaron Bullock is well enough to be riding tomorrow as he is booked. $2.70 Each Way Call Me Artie (Taree Race 1 No. 4)
Our Scone Horse Racing Tips for Monday's meeting. Best Bets Miss Milton (Scone Race 4 No. 9) Miss Milton has her fair share of talent and ran well last start to find second placing. Loves this trip and stays at the track. She maps to do no work from the draw and should run a bold race at a nice price. $6.50 Each Way Rupertson (Scone Race 7 No. 6) Rupertson has been a model of consistency this prep putting together
