Sale Tips - July 9

Get our best value tips for Friday racing at Sale.

Race 1 1:00pm AEST – No. 1 Cecil Street Lad

There have been sizable bets placed on Cecil Street Lad and the money could be worth following. The Richard Laming stable is a big betting stable, which is an excellent sign for his debut run. The son of Bobby’s Kitten hit the line nicely to score a narrow jumpout win and he wasn’t asked to do much in the run to the line.

The well-related type has steadily firmed with bookmakers since markets opened and that’s the best form guide. Dean Holland takes the ride from barrier five and he should get every chance in the run to produce his best.

Race 3 2:00pm AEST – No. 9 All This Mayhem

Speaking of betting moves, All This Mayhem is one of the best-backed runners on the card. The four-year-old mare opened at $14 and is now into $4.80. There have been some scratchings, but it’s still a huge betting plunge on a runner with potential. She finished fourth on debut at Bairnsdale after almost failing in the straight, but she picked herself up to run only 3.9 lengths behind the winner.

She has been given a month to recover from that effort and having senior rider Brett Prebble take over the riding duties is a big boost. Drawing barrier three helps and we’re not surprised by the amount of money coming for All This Mayhem.

Race 5 3:00pm AEST – No. 2 Who’s Your Papy

Not much has gone right for Who’s Your Papy this season, but we’re keeping the faith. The three-year-old son of Pride of Dubai finished fourth fresh up at Pakenham before losing the rider at Wangaratta. He returned to finish third at Ballarat last start and that’s a good form guide for this contest, which features an even betting field.

He is much better than a one-win type and getting 2kg off his back should bring him into contention. Getting an inside draw could be the winning of the race and punters should expect to see him land on the speed and provide a good kick. His odds have been specked throughout the week and any positive betting moves for Who’s Your Papy is a good sign.

Race 6 3:30pm AEST – No. 1 Duke of Neworleans

Speed is in favour of Duke of Neworleans, which looked like a progressive type during his first campaign. The Matt Laurie-trained three-year-old showed extreme pace when winning on debut and he followed it up with a second placing at Pakenham, where he was only a nose behind the winner in a driving finish.

We were disappointed with his effort fresh up this campaign at Moe. He finished eighth behind Plymouth Road, but we’re prepared to forgive the effort. His early pace was still there, but he weakened in the straight as the odds-on favourite. With fitness on his side now, the fitter runner should be able to find the front and kick on the turn. Punters get value odds worth taking and we expect those odds to firm close to start time.
