Our Naracoorte Racing Tips for Wednesdays meeting.
Monteferrante (Naracoorte Race 6 No. 5)
This five-year-old Pierro mare trained by Tony McEvoy has had 22 starts for two wins and 10 places and has been racing at metropolitan tracks. She settled well back and battled on steadily for 5.9 lengths 6th over 2400m at Sandown Hillside on 24 February, then came from well back to look the likely winner at the 100m before being caught and finishing 0.5 length 2nd over 1950m at Morphettville Parks on 20 March. Looks very well placed here.
Turf Tapper (Naracoorte Race 4 No. 6):
This seven-year-old Dream Ahead gelding has six wins and 10 places from 43 starts, and came 2nd at his only previous run at this track. He was taken out wide and didn’t come on in the straight when 4.2 lengths 8th over 1200m at Gawler on 2 January before a 12 week spell, then resumed for 2.4 lengths 4th over 1100m at Oakbank on 31 March. Generally goes well second-up and looks a nice each-way chance.
Stryke In Style (Naracoorte Race 5 No. 4):
This five-year-old Stryker gelding is the early favourite in this benchmark 64 handicap over 1430m. He resumed from a 14 week spell for 0.2, 0.9 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Morphettville on 8 March, then was fighting hard but pulled-up lame when 3.1 lengths 6th over 1400m at Oakbank on 28 March. His third-up record is poor and I’m willing to risk him here.

Our Terang Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet comes off a 9 length romping and looks every chance of going one better despite the rise in grade. Best Bet Galloping Guru (Terang Race 7 No.2) Galloping Guru atoned with 2 luckless runs and put a 9 length margin on them. Goes up in grade but looks progressive and can head to the front and prove tough to mow down. Expecting the support to come prior to
Our Kembla Grange Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 6 metres. The best bet comes up in race 3 and looks very hard to hold out from the good draw with Jennings steering and hailing from the Doyle yard. Best Bet Reigning King (Kembla Grange Race 3 No. 2) Bumped into a good one fresh and was solid in defeat. Its only win came second up in the past so this looks a very suitable race and slightly easier
Our Kempsey Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet has been heavily backed. Best Bet Fools Play (Kempsey Race 3 No. 7) Has claims against this bunch. Drawn perfectly and should give this race a shake from the kind barrier. The booking of Mc Guren is suitable and this race is ideal. $2.40 Best Each Way Hard To Dismiss (Kempsey Race 7 No.8 ) Doesn't win out of turn
Our York Horse Racing Tips for Monday’s meeting. Comments The track is good and the rail is in the true position. Best Bet Trigger Finger (York Race 1 No. 8) Trigger Finger resumes from a 20 week spell and has started at York 3 times before for 2 places. Leading hope to break his maiden status. $2.70 Each Way Thinking Game (York Race 7 No. 8) He was overhauled late over 1940m
