I am siding with this son of Deep Field following his 1.2 length defeat in third first-up. He was held up a couple of times in the straight and finished off the race well despite his misfortunes throughout and was also found after the race to have lost a plate in running as well. He drops 1.5kg from that effort and despite drawing barrier 9, the main speed is to his outside, so he should be able to obtain a forward position should he start well. John Allen taking the ride is ideal and I truly think he will be right in the finish.
I really like these two in the opener. Miss Daniel enters this contest first-up after 224 days on the sideline and a nice jumpout on Tuesday. Her form last preparation was very good, finishing with a 0.38 length third in a race that has produced two individual winners since. She has no weight on her back and has a tremendous gate to be able to sit off this fast pace. An error-free run will see her go close. No Way Ever is the other I like but she is also entered for Flemington on the same day. She has drawn poorly here but her figures suggest she is in this race up to her eyeballs, especially coming off her 2.4 length fourth placing behind Najmaty. If she runs here, she is a chance with luck.
Current Price: $4.40 / $5.00

Our Geelong Horse Racing Tips for Friday's meeting. Best Bets Martha Lavinia (Geelong Race 4 No. 11) Building up to a win and strikes the perfect opportunity to get one on the board. Scratched from a race today and saved for this. Maps well and should take some holding out in this race. $5.50 Each Way Aquila Volare (Geelong Race 6 No. 1) Unlucky last start and can atone here with John Allen in the saddle. Has always shown good promise to date
Our Cranbourne Horse Racing Tips for Thursday's meeting. Best Bets Tycoon Beau (Cranbourne Race 6 No. 8) Hard to not like the run of Tycoon Beau last start who circled the field and couldn't quite run don Chardon Burj who goes around at Doomben on Saturday in a stakes race so the form looks excellent. With even luck it will be very hard to hold out from the tricky draw and looks nicely weighted despite the rise in grade. $6.00 Each Way
Best Bets Our Rosehill Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. The feature event is the Lord Mayors Cup (Race 7). Quintello (Rosehill Race 9 No. 13) With four wins and three places from eight starts, this mare from the Maher/Eustace stable has above average ability. She resumed from a spell with a 4 length win over 1200m at Mornington on 26 March, then chased hard to find the front and raced clear for a 2.9 length win on heavy going over 1400m at Randwick on 23 April.
Best Bets Our Flemington Horse Racing Tips for Saturday's meeting. The feature event is the Straight Six (race 7). Tuvalu (Flemington Race 8 No. 13) Tuvalu is a talented four year old gelding who was far too good first up on his home track at Warrnambool. His I’m Thunderstruck form from last prep reads very well for a race like this and I love that he rolls forward and makes his own luck up on speed. $2.70 Each Way Coolth (Flemington
