Caulfield


Race 3 1:15pm AEST – NEDS FILTER FORM BM78 Tips

It’s a wide-open field with many nice types lining up, but the value is with Ocular. The Shea Eden-trained gelding didn’t fire at Caulfield last start but he was in the wrong part of the track and the improving track conditions will only give his chances a boost.

Second Slip and Diamonds Inthe Sky are also in the market. They both scored three consecutive wins last preparation and the money has come at each-way odds.

Race 5 2:35pm AEST – IVE PRINT BM84 Tips

The Kiwis are confident with Elephant and they have every reason to be. The Browne-trained five-year-old is unbeaten after four starts and two of those wins came at this distance. He hasn’t been fully tested across the Tasman and drawing barrier two should see him land in good position. He could prove to be a smart type.

Jumbo Ozaki is nearing his best form after placing at Caulfield. It’s a good form indicator and he should be winning soon.

Race 7 3:55pm AEST – QUEZETTE STAKES Tips

Gimmie Par has been well-supported to win, but the favourite could be vulnerable. We like Libiamo to win at double-figure odds. The three-year-old filly did a bit wrong on debut but still won by a half-length. She will only improve with the run and punters get value odds.

In the mix are Najmaty and Arcaded, who are tidy types and worth including in selections.

Kembla Grange


Race 6 2:15pm AEST – QUAYCLEAN BM78 Tips

Punters get value odds throughout the field and we’re eyeing up Bethencourt, who could score an overdue win. The Kim Waugh-trained gelding sprinted late to finish second last start, which made it three second placings in a row. He is talented and despite the drifting odds, he is worth backing.

Crystal Pegasus and Mayfair Spirit have been backed to win. Mayfair Spirit finished fourth at his Australian debut at Sale and needs to be kept safe over this distance.

Race 8 3:35pm AEST – DARLEY UP AND COMING STAKES Tips

Tiger of Malay has form around some smart age-group types and he could mature into a handy three-year-old. He owns two wins and two placings from seven starts and has won over $800,000. He is a Group 1 placegetter and Group 2 winner, so the class is there.

A danger is Concocted, who won on debut at Hawkesbury before running second at Rosehill. It was a solid effort and with the weight advantage of 53kg, he could go close.

Eagle Farm


Race 2 11:58pm AEST – BRC MEMBERSHIP HANDICAP Tips

Sacca opened as the favourite following a win at Sunshine Coast, but it came against a field of only four. We like Toowoomba-based gelding Legal Esprit to get the job done and he’s still paying a generous price. The three-year-old owns four wins from five starts and he’s ready for the rise in class. 
It’s an open field at Eagle Farm, but we wouldn’t leave him off our ticket.

Race 7 3:07pm AEST – SPIRIT OF BOOM BM78 Tips

Most of the money has come for last-start winner Champagne Aunty and it looks well-placed. The daughter of Trusting won by just under a length at Eagle Farm last start and she has yet to run worse than third from three attempts on the track. She opened at $2.70 and has been well-backed throughout the week.

Eelloh owns four wins from 14 starts and she won by 2.3 lengths last start. If there is any danger to the favourite, Eelloh would be the one.

Morphettville


Race 3 1:27pm AEST – THE JUNCTION BM78 Tips

The Travis Doudle-trained six-year-old comes off two impressive wins and he looks well-placed to win a third. He is a six-time winner that loves the wet conditions and we would be surprised if he didn’t win again. The Doudle-trained son of Mahisara runs at short odds but punters should add him to multi bets.

Race 6 3:27pm AEST – JAMES SQUIRE SPRING STAKES Tips

Behemoth is the class act of this field and the Group 1 winner is paying fair odds given his ability. The six-year-old owns four wins on the track and he owns four wins from six fresh-up starts, so he hits the ground running. Getting $2 for a runner of his ability is good shopping.

Best-backed to beat Behemoth is Beau Rossa, who won by 3.3 lengths last start. It was a comprehensive display and he should run the quinella with the favourite.

Belmont


Race 8 6:15pm AEST – HEINEKEN NEWMARKET Tips

Indian Pacific is unbeaten from three fresh-up starts and two starts on a soft surface. The five-year-old son of Zoustar also owns three wins from four attempts at Belmont, so he looks like a good statistical bet in the feature race. $3.70 is a value price and it should shorten on race day.

Son of a God also has talent and he gets the benefit of a lightweight. He is worth including in selections.
