Ingear (Eagle Farm Race 7 No. 4)
This four-year-old mare trained by Tony Gollan has three wins and five places from 11 starts and goes well at this track. At the end of last campaign she finished 1.25 lengths 2nd over 1200m at Doomben when she bled, then resumed after 21 weeks for a 2.75 lengths win over 1000m at Eagle Farm on 21 January. That was an easy win and there is no reason she can’t win again here.
Devine Grey (Eagle Farm Race 2 No. 2):
This four-year-old grey mare has five wins and three places from 18 starts and has three wins and three 2nds from her last six starts. She ran on strongly for a length 2nd over 2200m at Sunshine Coast on 3 January, then kept coming and drew clear for a 2.5 length win over 2170m at Ipswich on 23 January. She is in great form at the moment and is a nice each-way bet.
Let’s Party Marty (Eagle Farm Race 6 No. 6):
This six-year-old gelding is the early favourite in this Open Handicap over 1200m after winning two of his three starts this campaign. He bolted in for a 3.5 length win over 1200m at Doomben on 19 December, then hit the front but was headed at the 100m to finish 2.2 lengths 4th over 1350m at Doomben on 23 January. This is a tougher race and he offers no value.
Our Bendigo Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments 9 race card. Expecting those on speed to be suited. The rail is out 3 metres and the best bet comes up a big price. Best Bet Doncic (Bendigo Race 4 No. 4) Nommed for Wednesday as well so may not be racing here. Looked to be full of running in a recent trial and found no room on debut. Drawn to find clean air here and strikes the right race. $8.50
The rail is in the true position. Bullock has been riding in terrific form and comes up with a strong card again. He looks the jockey to follow on a card full of favourites that are hard to beat. Best Bet Sardonyx (Scone Race 2 No.3 ) A key scratching comes out and leaves Sardonyx very hard to beat. Maps well, Bullock steers and gets the right race here. Hard to beat at goods still. $2.90 Best Each Way
Our Newcastle tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 5 metres. Heavy conditions expected so looking towards runners that are proven on wet tracks. Best Bet Dale (Newcastle Race 6 No. 2) No prizes for finding this runner but put in a solid effort on debut and drops miles in grade. In smartly at the weights here and with no jockey booked yet does look very hard to hold out in this thin maiden. $1.40 l
Our Nowra Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The track is in the heavy range. The rail is true. Best Bet Deni Gal (Nowra Race 7 No. 4) None of these win out of turn but Deni Gal has good claims with a superb record at the track and a good record with Guymer steering. He has won twice from 6 goes aboard which is a very good sign given the horse is 3 wins from 22 starts. Hard to beat and maps
