Metallicity (Canberra Race 8 No. 4)
Loved the debut effort of Metallicity despite plenty going wrong for it. A change of tactics with the steer is likely and there are huge wraps about it from the stable. Needs some luck from the draw but I am surprised it didn’t open up clear cut favourite. Very well placed here and looks ready to win the 2022 Black Opal Stakes.
Chat has irresistible formlines for this National Sprint race. I’m putting a pen through its last run in the Newcastle Newmarket as I doubt it handled the heavy track all that well. Prior run was a 4 length defeat behind Lost And Running with Overpass in second in the Group 3 Southern Cross Stakes. We saw Overpass come out and demolish the Inglis Sprint field last weekend and Lost And Running looks a very strong chance in the Group 1 Newmarket on Saturday. Form around these 2 high-class gallopers sticks out in this field and despite the awkward draw, Chat holds very strong claims in this field.
Suprised Aim opened up favourite and I don’t think it is going near as well as it used to. Form at the moment reads very average and hasn’t been able to find the placings for quite some time. It is classy on its day but I couldn’t have it favourite in this competitive affair.
Best Bets Our Devonport Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. Boom Dot Com (Devonport Race 6 No. 3)/ Rebel Factor (Devonport Race 6 No. 5) Think this is a race in two, despite FREELANCER likely coming up short. I can’t have it. Keen to be with both BOOM DOT COM and REBEL FACTOR. BOOM DOT COM resumed in an unsuitable race on a wet deck at Launny and really found the line. Gets a 10L jockey switch here, and gets to a trip she relishes (~1400m). I
Best bet | Race 2 #5 Ice In Vancouver I’m surprised he’s not clear favourite here. There’s so many positives in his favour, most notably the fitness edge on his rivals and the super lightweight. Apprentice Angela Jones can get down to 52kg for this ride and it means he’ll carry 6kg less than main rivals Ef Troop and Racecourse Road. He comes here off two impressive wins to start his preparation and has only been defeated once from six starts at this 1000m sprint trip. In the small field
Our Tamworth Horse Racing Tips for Friday's meeting. Best Bets Pliskova (Tamworth Race 3 No. 7) Pliskova will need luck from the draw but this race looks within reach. It hit the line really well on debut and brings the strongest last start rating of this field. The $6.00 is over the odds provided it can find a clear passage in the straight. $6.00 Each Way Lonely Power (Tamworth Race 4 No. 1) Lonely Power has good ability and just needs
Best Bets Our Morphettville Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. The feature race is the Group 3 Spring Stakes (race 7). Glacius (Morphettville Race 9 No. 4) This four-year-old Frosted gelding trained by Will Clarken has only had two starts. On debut he led throughout for a 1.6 length win over 1100m at Gawler on 20 July, then drifted back to 11th from his wide draw before running on late for 1.4 lengths 2nd over 1000m at Murray Bridge on 6 August.
