Our Rockhampton Horse Racing Tips for Tuesday’s meeting.
Stubai (Rockhampton Race 2 No. 1)
This four-year-old Medaglia D’Oro gelding trained by Ricky Vale at North Rockhampton has five wins and four places from 16 starts. He led from the 800m to win by 1.75 lengths in a Class 6 handicap over 1400m at Rockhampton on 29 April, then led but was tackled at the top of the straight and fought on for 1.8 length 4th in the cup open handicap over 1600m at Rockhampton on 15 May. He has great form at this track and looks the one to beat.
Arzani (Rockhampton Race 6 No. 1):
This four-year-old Jimmy Choux gelding has one win and five places from 16 starts. He ran 2nd in three consecutive races before 2.45 lengths 4th over 1600m at Rockhampton on 13 January, then was 4.2 lengths 5th over 1560m at Mackay on 9 February. Resumes here after a 15 week spell and is having his first start for Jamie McConachy. Placed when trialling at this track and looks a good each-way chance.
Spirit Esprit (Rockhampton Race 7 No. 7):
This five-year-old Bel Esprit gelding trained by Garnett Taylor at the Sunshine Coast is the early favourite in this Class 6 Plate over 1400m. He finished 1.3 lengths 5th in a Class 4 over 1400m at Eagle Farm on 14 April, then was flatfooted at the start and only battled in the straight for 1.75, 1.25 lengths 3rd of 5 in a Class 6 over 1400m at Rockhampton on 29 April. Others offer better value.
Our Moe Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet is in the opening race of the day and looks well placed. Best Bet Poppin' Champagne (Kyneton Race 1 No.14) Can land up on the speed and prove hard to beat. Likeable claims in this field and looks suited against this bunch. Hard to beat and the price is still worth it. $1.75 Best Each Way Virtucon (Moe Race
Our Pinjarra Scarpside Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments There are 10 races and the rail is in the true position. The feature race is the $150,000 Pinjarra Classic (race 9). Best Bet Silver Back Jack (Pinjarra Scarpside Race 8 No. 1) Silver Back Jack won over 1800m at Ascot 2 starts back, then ran 2nd to a talented mare at his most recent start over 1675m. He'll appreciate the rise in trip and is the leading hope. $3.80
Our Launceston Horse Racing Tips for Sunday. The track is a Soft 5 and the rail is in the true position. The features are the Gold Sovereign Stakes (race 5) and Tasmanian Oaks over 2100m (race 7). As a general rule, runners who land in the front half of the field are suited at this track, with an advantage to those who find the inside lanes in the straight. Best Bet Wings Of Song (Launceston Race 7 No. 1) Made it 4 wins
Our Ballarat Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is out 1 metre from the 400m to the winning post and true for the remainder. The drop in class is ideal for the best bet who looks very well placed. Best Bet Altermatum (Ballarat Race 2 No.7) Chased home Hayasugi last start and that form has been franked again today. Looks very well placed in this company and should get a dream run from the draw. $2.70 is over the odds in
