Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Saturday’s meetings, with horse racing tips and analysis for the five best bets of the weekend. Good luck, punters!


Going with plenty of value in the Guineas and going to have something each way on WALTZ ON BY. She comes into this ready to find best form third-up from spell. She looked a chance on the turn in Group 3 company at The Valley last start but just did not finish off well enough.
Billy Egan takes the ride in the famous Black and Yellow check colours of Arrowfield and at the price she looks a nice best in this field.


Hard to see them beating the in form MUNHAMEK in this. He was dominant winning at Flemington two starts back then went to The Valley last start and was even more impressive. Nick Ryan has him flying at the mile and he should take care of this field.
Daniel Moor takes the ride and is the third different rider to sit on him in last three starts. He will lose nothing with him aboard.


1050m scamper here and sticking with MOUETTE, who I’m hoping will find the lead without too many worries. She has led in her last 5 starts, Melea Castle takes the ride and gets a 3kg claim. With such a lightweight and if it turns out to be a leader’s track on Saturday, she will be giving us a run for our money.
Was a dual acceptor and the camp have selected this race, which gives additional confidence.


LIVE TO TELL was highly impressive last time out, swooping home down the outside to win the listed Supremacy Stakes in only her second run. She meets very similar opposition here and although drawn off the track, that will only make the price even more appetising.
Watch for this 2yo filly to be charging home again and putting a Group 3 win on the board.

Welcome back AMELIA’S JEWEL. She returns to the track after winning the Group 1 Northerly Stakes and is getting ready for The Quokka in coming weeks. Although this is short of her favorite distance, getting such a low draw in 2, the race should pan out perfectly for her and be able to run over them late.
She is unbeaten first up and looked ready finishing 2nd in a trial at Lark Hill behind Comfort Me who she meets again here. Tipping she’ll be winning first up.
