Corowa Tips - 26th July


Get out best bets for Corowa on Monday.

Race 1 12:55pm AEST – No. 9 Lima Spice


The Egan-trained filly finished second on debut at Wodonga and we’re expecting form out of that race to stack up. She was only 1.3 lengths behind the winner in heavy conditions and the slight improvement in track conditions will help. The daughter of Redente is bred to handle the soft going and because the track is wet, she won’t mind drawing wide in barrier 14.

Nick Souquet takes the ride and her odds have remained steady throughout the week. She opened at $3.20 and has drifted out slightly, but she’s the leading chance in this contest and we’re expecting Lima Spice to break her maiden status soon.

Race 3 2:05pm AEST – No. 8 Devils Triangle


The three-year-old filly by More than Ready looked the goods when winning on debut at Wagga. She scored by a length on a heavy track before running gamely for third at Dubbo last time out. The rise in distance to 1400m might have caught her out, so we’re not surprised to see trainer Matthew Dale revert back to the 1200m distance for this contest.

She is a well-bred runner that looks to have ability and she has been kept safe in betting markets. Her opening odds of $2.60 has firmed and she’s not facing a field of superstars, so we expect her odds to firm throughout the day. Blaike McDougall rides from barrier five and she should get every chance in the run.

Race 5 3:15pm AEST – No. 2 Wilga Hill


Looking to remain unbeaten is Wilga Hill, who produced a professional effort on debut. The three-year-old gelding by Foxwedge won by 1.3 lengths in a dominant fashion and there was plenty of betting support on that occasion, which is a good sign. He got through the heavy going with ease and with similar conditions expected on Monday, he won’t be worried about the surface.

Wilga Hill is one of the best-backed runners of the day at Corowa. He opened at $4.20 and was quickly backed into $2.30. His odds have naturally drifted since, but the early support was there and he should attract attention late. We expect another top effort from the favourite, and although this field is much harder than his maiden run, he looks up to the task.

Race 7 4:25pm AEST – No. 10 Fleur de Rose


The Paul Sweeney-trained three-year-old runs at value odds and there is little wrong with her form. She scored a win on debut at Wagga by a length before running second at Corowa. Having experience on this track is ideal and although her only wet-track run wasn’t ideal, it came on a heavy track. Running on a soft track should help and barrier 10 won’t be an issue.

The filly by Bull Point isn’t getting much respect from bookmakers, but we’re happy to take the double-figure odds. It’s another good ride for Nick Souquet and he should be able to put Fleur de Rose into a competitive spot.
