Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews the Port Macquarie meeting this afternoon, with horse racing tips and analysis for 3 selected races. Good luck, punters!


Last start I was all over MISS CALCULATION in this grade. She moved into the race early but as they straightened, she started going one paced. Just plodded the last 400m and ran 5th. It was a handy run, but cost me. Anyway, upon examination, it was 2nd up and she was rushed to 1500m. There is no doubting the fact the run will have tightened her up as it was her first ever go at this trip. Should be two lengths faster today and if ridden off speed should sprout wings late. There has also been considerable money come for her overnight.


A really good chance to make money here. There has been good money for the well bred HOLY TYCOON who is 3rd up. She ran 2nd in this class last start coming from 5th at the bend over 1006m. But that was a heavy track and she looked bogged down by it. The track is damp again today but not that wet and she is considerably fitter now also. Perfectly drawn and looks a great bet. Maybe WANNAWINWIN can bob up at odds for 2nd.

Tip: HOLY TYCOON @ $2.70

I like the look of TEQUILA CABOS in this. She is particularly fit now after 4 starts this time up, where she has rattled home for 3 placings. Is coming off a 2nd at scone in weaker grade but had a 3kg apprentice that day on top and it was a very heavy track. carries a senior rider today. She has very good stats on soft tracks which she receives today.

Tip: TEQUILA CABOS @ $5.00
