Chico Milagro (Doomben Race 3 No. 8)
This I Am Invincible gelding won well last start and goes well on soft going. He battled on for 2.7 lengths 6th over 1350m at Ipswich on 18 July, then settled midfield and took over at the 250m and raced away for a 4 length win over 1200m at Eagle Farm on 1 August. That was a nice win and this looks a suitable race for him to make it back-to-back wins.
Sir Barnabus (Doomben Race 2 No. 2):
This Rothesay gelding tends to race well at this distance range. He came from 9th to finish 0.5 lengths, 0.2 lengths 3rd over 2150m at Ipswich on 18 July where he was doing his best work late. Last start he took over at the 250m and drew away for a strong 2.5 length win over 2200m at Eagle Farm on 1 August. He looks worth an each-way bet at the current price.
Bering Sea (Doomben Race 5 No. 8):
This Pierro gelding is the early favourite in this BM 78 handicap over 1600m. He finished 0.8 lengths 2nd over 1640m at Doomben on a soft track on 29 July, then was brushed at the 250m, fought on and protested unsuccessfully against the winner to be 2nd over 1650m at Doomben on 12 August. He hasn’t won in 6 previous races at Doomben and does not look like value.

Our Hawkesbury Tips for Wednesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The track is in the heavy range but should be improving. The each way bet has been heavily tried and will be hard to hold out. Best Bet Redbreast (Hawkesbury Race 5 No. 11) Solid debut in a harder race than this. Maps well from barrier 2 and Tim Clark does the steering. Should appreciate the drop in grade and this race looks very suitable. Hard to beat. $1.95
Our Sandown Lakeside Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday’s meeting. Key Comments Keen on the best bet who is in the first race of the day and looks very hard to beat. Best Bet Quickster (Sandown Lakeside Race 1 No. 9) Good way to kick the day off with a winner. I tipped Quickster at the start of last prep and it should have won when flying home late. Suited kicking off at the 1200 and looks terribly hard to beat. $1.75
Our Strathalbyn Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday's meeting. Key Comments The track is currently rated a Good 4 and the rail remains in the true position. Best Bet Under The Cone (Strathalbyn Race 1 No. 7) Under The Cone has 2 placings from his 3 starts. He was beaten in a photo finish at Murray Bridge when stepping up to this trip a fortnight ago and should be able to break his maiden status here. $1.75
