Gosford Racing Tips 22.09.2021 - City Form to the Fore


Gosford hosts a seven-race card on Wednesday, September 22, and we have our four best bets available. Our tips have all been heavily backed throughout the week, which is a good sign of market confidence.
  • Race 3 2:35pm No. 1 Unamerican
  • Race 4 3:10pm No. 4 Quantico
  • Race 6 4:20pm No. 1 Nags to Riches
  • Race 7 4:55pm No. 2 Belluci Babe


Race 3 2:35pm No. 1 Unamerican


Value is with Unamerican, who has won consecutive races. The Freedman-trained five-year-old won at Gosford by a length before doubling down and winning by a short margin last time out. He is unbeaten in two starts on the track, which bodes well for this contest. He is also a four-time winner at the distance, so the statistics read well.

We were surprised to see him push forward last start, but he could adopt similar tactics on Wednesday. Jockey Rachel King is a good judge of speed and she could pinch the race turning for home. Gosford is a track where the front runners can get clear, so include him at value odds.

Race 4 3:10pm No. 4 Quantico


Quantico started his career with three wins and a placing from six starts, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he kicked off this season in style. The five-year-old didn’t fire at Randwick last start, but he was facing a tough field. He has returned well in two trials, including a second placing behind Zelady Luck at Randwick, which ranks well.

Having James McDonald in the saddle helps and he has been well-backed in early markets. Bookmakers opened him at $3.30 and he has since firmed into $3, so it’s a solid move for the favourite. Our only concern is the wide draw, but McDonald is the man you want in the saddle.

Race 6 4:20pm No. 1 Nags to Riches


Nags to Riches scored an impressive win three back at Randwick before running on solidly in two subsequent runs. The four-year-old mare defeated some handy types last month before running close behind the likes of More Prophets and Selburose. It’s strong midweek form and it’s another premium ride for James McDonald.

Rising in weight to 61kg could be a concern, but she meets easier opposition. She has already beaten race rival Escape Artist last season, so she shouldn’t have too much trouble. The early betting confidence is a good sign, so stick with her.

Race 7 4:55pm No. 2 Belluci Babe


The Bjorn Baker stable has been firing this season and he could train another winner with Belluci Babe. The five-year-old mare owns four wins and five placings from 10 starts, so she has missed the money only once. She is a proven winner fresh up and she runs her best races over this distance, so we’re not surprised by the money coming for her throughout the week. She opened at $3.50 and has firmed into $2.80, which is a sizable move for a favourite.

Jumping from barrier two is ideal and although she has yet to race at Gosford, the tight-turning track should be right up her alley. We expect another big effort from Belluci Babe in what is a tidy field.
