Deevine (Gawler Race 6 No. 1)
This six-year-old Zebedee gelding trained by Ryan Balfour won at Gawler three starts back and has placed at both starts since then. He came from 10th for 1.3 lengths 3rd over 1000m at Morphettville Parks on 16 July, then began awkwardly and kept chasing from well back for 2.2 lengths 3rd over 1000m at Morphettville Parks on 23 July. Gets a 3kg claim and has two previous wins at the track. Well-placed here.
Betta Eddie (Gawler Race 7 No. 2):
This four-year-old Barbados gelding trained by Darren Magro & A Bush has placed at his last four starts and is very consistent. He had a tough run before finishing 2 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Balaklava on 29 June, then took over at the 200m but was gathered in late for 1.2 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Gawler on 20 July. Has a 2kg claim and is likely to race on the speed. A great each-way chance.
Wolf Prince (Gawler Race 3 No. 7):
This four-year-old Tivaci gelding trained by Grant Young is the early favourite in this Class 1 Plate over 2100m. He worked hard early before running 8 lengths 4th over 2100m at Gawler on 20 July, then he stalked the leader before peaking in the final 250m for 1.5 lengths 5th over 2200m at Balaklava on 27 July. On a seven day back-up but others offer better value.
Best Bets Our Devonport Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. Boom Dot Com (Devonport Race 6 No. 3)/ Rebel Factor (Devonport Race 6 No. 5) Think this is a race in two, despite FREELANCER likely coming up short. I can’t have it. Keen to be with both BOOM DOT COM and REBEL FACTOR. BOOM DOT COM resumed in an unsuitable race on a wet deck at Launny and really found the line. Gets a 10L jockey switch here, and gets to a trip she relishes (~1400m). I
Our Bendigo Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Best Bets Mafiore (Bendigo Race 1 No. 1) Knocking on the door and gets the perfect chance here. Has the wide draw to overcome but has plenty of ability and was unlucky to lose last start. Ready to win and the $2.20 appeals in a very winnable contest. $2.20 Each Way Lavish Thinker (Sale Race 4 No. 14) Lavish Thinker has a nice turn of foot and should be giving this race a
Best bet | Race 2 #5 Ice In Vancouver I’m surprised he’s not clear favourite here. There’s so many positives in his favour, most notably the fitness edge on his rivals and the super lightweight. Apprentice Angela Jones can get down to 52kg for this ride and it means he’ll carry 6kg less than main rivals Ef Troop and Racecourse Road. He comes here off two impressive wins to start his preparation and has only been defeated once from six starts at this 1000m sprint trip. In the small field
Our Tamworth Horse Racing Tips for Friday's meeting. Best Bets Pliskova (Tamworth Race 3 No. 7) Pliskova will need luck from the draw but this race looks within reach. It hit the line really well on debut and brings the strongest last start rating of this field. The $6.00 is over the odds provided it can find a clear passage in the straight. $6.00 Each Way Lonely Power (Tamworth Race 4 No. 1) Lonely Power has good ability and just needs
