Our Darwin Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday’s meeting.
Shenanigan City (Darwin Race 3 No. 1)
This five-year-old Ilovethiscity gelding has two wins and three places from 11 starts. He chased solidly along the rails for 2 lengths 3rd over 1106m at Sale on 20 December, then just plugged when 8.7 lengths 7th over 1200m at Caulfield on 13 January. Resumes here after a 28 week spell and is having his first start for this trainer. Both his wins have been first up and he can win here.
Newmatic Sands (Darwin Race 4 No. 5):
This five-year-old Written Tycoon mare has four places from her 12 starts. She dropped out a long last and did well to run on for 7.7 lengths 6th of 10 over 1100m at Darwin on 12 June, then improved to finish 2.5 lengths 2nd over 1300m at Darwin on 26 June. Looks a nice each-way chance again.
Tugga War (Darwin Race 1 No. 4):
This five-year-old chestnut mare trained by Gary Clarke is the early favourite in this BM 0-62 handicap over 1600m. Resuming from a 24 week spell she finished 3.8 lengths 2nd over 1100m at Darwin on 12 June, then ran on steadily for 6.1 lengths 5th over 1200m at Darwin on 26 June. Will appreciate the extra distance, but others look to have better chances.
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
Our Bendigo Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Best Bets Mafiore (Bendigo Race 1 No. 1) Knocking on the door and gets the perfect chance here. Has the wide draw to overcome but has plenty of ability and was unlucky to lose last start. Ready to win and the $2.20 appeals in a very winnable contest. $2.20 Each Way Lavish Thinker (Sale Race 4 No. 14) Lavish Thinker has a nice turn of foot and should be giving this race a
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
