Our Doomben Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday’s meeting.
Wowsers (Doomben Race 7 No. 4)
This four-year-old gelding trained by Chris Munce has three wins and eight places from 20 starts. He ran on from the back half of the field to finish 0.5, 0.2 length 3rd over 1630m at Doomben on 24 April, then was leading until the final 100m and fought hard for 0.1 length 2nd over 1600m at Eagle Farm on 5 May. He has placed at his last four starts and is ready to win.
One For Betty (Doomben Race 8 No. 14):
This five-year-old All Too Hard mare has had five wins and five places from 19 starts. She fought on for 0.9 lengths 4th over 1615m at Doomben on 24 October, then was spelled for 28 weeks. On resuming she didn’t run on and finished 11.7 lengths 16th in the Listed Silk Stocking over 1400m at Gold Coast on 8 May. She is better than that and is worth an each-way bet.
Neutron (Doomben Race 4 No. 8):
This three-year-old Starcraft gelding is the early favourite in this apprentice race Class 1 plate over 1350m. At the end of last campaign she was held up to the 100m and fought on when clear for 0.8 length 4th over 1400m at Eagle Farm on 3 October. On resuming after 31 weeks she chased solidly for 2.91, 0.57 lengths 3rd on a heavy track over 1100m at Murwillumbah on 10 May. May need another run and offers no value at the current price.
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
