Our Mornington Horse Racing Tips for Tuesday’s meeting.
Prince Of Mercia (Mornington Race 3 No. 4)
This three-year-old Magnus gelding trained at the track has ran 2nd three times from his four starts. He was leading to the turn and only went down late for 0.4 length 2nd over 1300m at Bendigo on 23 February, then chased solidly and peaked late for 1.25 length 2nd over 1200m at Sandown Lakeside. He has had an eight week let-up and won a recent Cranbourne trial. Has Jamie Kah riding and should win.
Dixiana (Mornington Race 8 No. 9):
This three-year-old Street Boss filly trained by James Cummings has one win and one place from three starts. She was an early leader but was headed inside the 200m and battled on for 0.75, 2.25 lengths 3rd over 1100m at Bendigo on 6 April, then settled midfield and ran on strongly to charge clear in the last few strides for a 1.25 length win over 1000m at Moe on 25 April on soft going. She looks a nice each-way bet.
Fortune Follows (Mornington Race 7 No. 4):
This four-year-old Akeed Mofeed gelding trained by Patrick Caboche is the early favourite in this BM 58 over 1200m. He was a 2.25 length winner in a 0-58 Handicap over 1212m at Kyneton on 17 April, then ran a close 2nd in a tight finish over 1200m at Kyneton on 3 May. He doesn’t represent value at this short price.

Our Hawkesbury Tips for Wednesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The track is in the heavy range but should be improving. The each way bet has been heavily tried and will be hard to hold out. Best Bet Redbreast (Hawkesbury Race 5 No. 11) Solid debut in a harder race than this. Maps well from barrier 2 and Tim Clark does the steering. Should appreciate the drop in grade and this race looks very suitable. Hard to beat. $1.95
Our Ipswich Horse Racing Tips for the 21st of February. Key Comments The rail is in 6.5 metres. Those on speed will be suited and the best bet is saved until the last race of the day. Best Bet To Wish (Ipswich Race 6 No. 5) Hard to beat from barrier 2 with Orman steering. This race suits and has been well tried in early doors. Good price and suitable target, the stable are having a brilliant run. $1.90
Our Strathalbyn Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday's meeting. Key Comments The track is currently rated a Good 4 and the rail remains in the true position. Best Bet Under The Cone (Strathalbyn Race 1 No. 7) Under The Cone has 2 placings from his 3 starts. He was beaten in a photo finish at Murray Bridge when stepping up to this trip a fortnight ago and should be able to break his maiden status here. $1.75
