Randwick


Race 4 1:10pm AEST – SAJC TROPHY BM78 Tips

Chris Waller lines up Loveplanet, who made a solid start to his Sydney campaign. The four-year-old owns three wins from five starts, and he will derive plenty of benefit from the run at Randwick. He was only a length behind some smart types and drawing barrier two is ideal for this race.

Pesto and Red Edit are each-way dangers to the favourite. They are consistent types that could add value to this race.

Race 6 2:25pm AEST – DARLEY SILVER SHADOW Tips

The scratching for She’s All Class has left Four Moves Ahead clear in betting markets. She is a classy filly that won her first two starts before finishing fourth in the Golden Slipper. The daughter of Snitzel looks likely to handle three-year-old racing and we’re happy with the odds available.

Swift Witness is another runner that comes out of the tough age-group races. She could go close at each-way value odds.

Race 7 3:05pm AEST – MOSTYN COPPER SHOW QUALITY Tips

It’s an open field and there are many winning chances. We’re going with Private Eye, who finds form early in his campaign and the son of Al Maher has treated punters well in the past. He owns six wins from nine starts, and that includes wins on all surfaces. His trial form leading into this race bodes well and we’re confident of a big effort.

Moonee Valley


Race 3 2:05pm AEST – STUART MURRAY BM90 Tips

It’s hard to look past the form of Corner Pocket, who has rattled off six consecutive wins. The five-year-old is in blistering form and he is unbeaten at Moonee Valley and at the distance. He is likely to push forward from the draw, which is a bonus, and he will be tough to run down. Four of his wins have come on a good surface, so conditions are ideal.

Front Page is also a nice type in the making. We wouldn’t be surprised if he ran the quinella with the favourite.

Race 6 4:05pm AEST – MCMAHON’S DAIRY MCKENZIE STAKES Tips

Jigsaw has been well-backed to win following a third placing behind Rock Artist. The three-year-old colt has made a nice start to his career, and he’s rock solid in betting. However, we like the look of Hilal at $2.40.

The Sydney-based runner finished second behind Captivant last start and he has Group 1 form. That is tough to overlook, and despite 1200m being short of his best, we’re backing him in.

Eagle Farm


Race 5 1:57pm AEST – SKY RACING C3 PLATE Tips

All eyes are on Whozyadeeler, who made an impressive start to his career with back-to-back wins. The five-year-old son of Dundeel won at Eagle Farm and Doomben before running third behind Mosshiki at Eagle Farm last start. He returns to the races following two solid trial efforts, which is a good sign.

His biggest danger is McCovey Cove. The consistent five-year-old owns three wins and five placings from nine starts, so the class is there. Both runners are worth a wager.

Race 6 2:37pm AEST – COUNTRY MUSIC HANDICAP Tips

Release the Beans couldn’t have been more impressive when running down some nice types last start. The three-year-old is now a three-time winner from four starts, which is an excellent record early in his career. He scored by a nose at this track two back, and a repeat takes him close.

Jumbo Goal was sixth behind Alpine Edge last start, but we’re expecting an improvement. He is another smart type and there has been solid betting support throughout the week.

Morphettville


Race 3 1:37pm AEST – ACCOLADE WINES MAIDEN Tips

Castle of Kings is getting close to breaking through after three placings to start his career. The Will Clarken-trained runner went well at Murray Bridge last start, and that form stacks up well at this level. We expect him to be fighting out the finish again and this field isn’t much harder.

Tavikat and Wheels of Courage are the next best with bookmakers. They have shown improvement and the betting support is worth noting.

Race 6 3:37pm AEST – FURPHY BM78 Tips

Money is coming for Not Usual Glorious, who is a former New Zealand runner that loves winning. The Travis Doudle-trained gelding scored four consecutive victories since arriving in Australia, and there was little wrong with his last-start placing.

He is fighting for favouritism with Seiners Express, who presents the biggest danger. The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding has shown ability in Melbourne and that often stacks up nicely in Adelaide. He goes into the mix.

Belmont


Race 6 5:10pm AEST – AMELIA PARK SPEC STAKES Tips

It’s an open field for the feature race of the day, but our money is with True Attraction. The Adam Durrant-trained six-year-old is a five-time winner at Belmont, and that statistic is tough to overlook. He didn’t fire last start, but he’s much better than that. Having William Pike in the saddle helps and punters get value odds.

Lonsdale Lady is the favourite after winning on this track last start. She has struggled over this distance but shouldn’t be left out.
