Saturday Racing Tips 28.8.2021 – Kembla Grange, Caulfield, Doomben, Morphettville & Belmont

Saturday racing tips for 28.8.2021, including our best bets and preview of the best chances from Kembla Grange, Caulfield, Doomben, Morphettville & Belmont, which includes stakes racing throughout Australia.

Kembla Grange

Race 2 12:05pm AEST – MIDWAY BM72 Tips

Royalzel looks one of the bets of the day. The three-year-old has won three of his five starts and he comes off a three-length win at Flemington. That form is excellent form this level of racing and we’re surprised he’s not shorter. James McDonald rides and he made good ground in recent trial at Warwick Farm, so we’re firmly in his camp.

Race 4 1:15pm AEST – NSWROA BM78 Tips

We were taken by the effort of imported runner Mankayan at Flemington last start. The former European hit the line impressively to run second and rising to 2000m only helps his chances. Kembla Grange might not be the best track for him, but we can’t put that effort out of our minds. His odds have shortened throughout the week, so expect a big run.

Race 8 3:50pm AEST – RANVET BM88 Tips

King of Sparta might have gone to another level this preparation. The three-year-old comes off a 3.3-length win on this track and he’s capable of handling the rise in class. He made it look easy, and although the likes of Tycoonist and Triple Ace are quality types, he’s on the rise. Carrying 54kg makes him tough to beat and we’re happy with the odds.


Race 1 12:20pm AEST – NEDS HANDICAP Tips

Running second behind Hosier is good form and that’s what Tooradin brings to the table. He scored back-to-back wins to open his campaign before rattling off three consecutive second placings. His effort last start in defeat was admirable, so he should be tough to beat. Getting the inside draw with 54kg on his back is a steal, so he’s clearly on top.

Race 3 1:30pm AEST – EVERGREEN TURF BM90 Tips

Bookmakers look to have the market right with current favourite Turaath. The five-year-old placed at her first two Australian starts before winning at Sandown and last time out at Flemington. She showed an impressive turn-of-foot to win by over three lengths last start, which is excellent form.

Money has also come for Annavisto. The four-time winner looked good last season and she makes her own luck. Annavisto and Turaath is the obvious quinella.


Aryton is the drifting favourite, but we’re not worried about that. The classy four-year-old won four of his five starts last campaign, including a top-rated race at Eagle Farm last start. He could be the next big thing and despite drawing barrier 12, he demands attention. The betting drift from $2 to $2.20 isn’t concerning, as he should firm on race day.



Punters have grown frustrated with Roman Aureus, but we’re keeping the faith. The five-year-old owns five wins and nine placings, so he’s consistent, but he has placed in all four runs this preparation. His time is coming, and we wouldn’t want to drop him when the time comes. Getting an inside barrier is ideal and he has a senior jockey in the saddle.

Race 7 3:22pm AEST – EMERY, MEARS & JEFFS PLATE Tips

We’re all about Prince of Boom. The Robert Heathcote-trained gelding won his first two starts in impressive fashion before getting no luck in the Group 1 Sires’ Produce. That is stellar form for this level of racing and we expected shorter odds. Punters have come for him after opening at $3.70, which isn’t surprising.


Race 4 2:21pm AEST – FRESH KITCHENS BM68 Tips

Punters get each-way odds throughout this field, but our pick is Preakness. The former Kiwi comes off a tidy win at Morphettville Parks and he looks like a nice type for the future. He won by 1.3 lengths and getting a 3kg claimer in the saddle is a bonus. Look for Ben Price to take him forward and try run them into the ground over 1400m.


There are two very nice types in this race; Ironclad and Second Slip. We’re going with Ironclad to edge out the second favourite. He won all four starts last campaign after arriving in Australia from Europe, so that form bodes well. He has yet to race over 1400m, but he won over 1200m and 1600m last season, which bodes well.



Punters thought they had the chocolates with Prince Ragnar on debut, but the winner fought back and denied the favourite. However, punters should load up and go again. The Williams-trained runner looks to have a bright future and it’s good to see William Pike sticking with him. The odds are worth taking and he gets all favours off the inside draw.
