Our Strathalbyn Racing Tips for Wednesday’s meeting.
Lutz (Strathalbyn Race 7 No. 2)
This three-year-old Panzer Division gelding trained by Richard and Chantelle Jolly has one win and one place from five starts. He worked home well making ground in the final 175m but was unable to reel in leader and finished 2.5 lengths 2nd over 1506m at Gawler on 16 May, then hit the front at the turn and came clear for a 4 length win over 2055m at Strathalbyn on 26 May to break his maiden. Jake Toerek retains the ride and he is a leading chance.
Canidae (Strathalbyn Race 8 No. 6):
This five-year-old Foxwedge gelding trained by John Hickmott at Murray Bridge has five wins and 14 places from 46 starts. He made some ground without threatening for 2.5 lengths 5th over 1600m at Balaklava on 12 May, then worked home strongly to gather in the leaders in the closing stages for a 0.8 length win over 1550m at Bordertown on 19 May. Has placed in 3 of his 4 previous runs at Strathalbyn and looks a good each-way chance again.
Sanbuck (Strathalbyn Race 6 No. 1):
This four-year-old Reward For Effort gelding is the early favourite in this BM 54 handicap over 1100m. He wasn’t fully tested late when 2.8 lengths 5th over 1050m at Balaklava on 12 May, then was held up from the turn to te 200m and battled evenly once clear for 3.1 lengths 5th over 1100m at Strathalbyn on 26 May. He has only won once from 20 starts and I’m prepared to risk him here.
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
