Horse Racing Tips – Hawkesbury | Sat 30th April

Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at Saturday’s NSW race meeting and singles out his top three hopes from each race for Hawkesbury  this weekend.

Rail: True

Track: Heavy 8

GREEEN SHADOWS is unbeaten in two starts, latest most impressive win in Brisbane. Up in weights but is experienced, is a winner, and certain to be handy all the way.

BASQUIAT is a maiden who was a game 2nd on debut beaten less than a length. Has since trialled well and Jay Mac rides. Certain to make a mark.

OWEN COUNTY is also unbeaten from one very strong finishing win at Kembla. This is harder but needed that run and the confidence will shine through here. Has claims.


Fascinating race. These Highways are getting better and better and this is a beauty. EXTRAVAGENT LAD is smart and fast. After winning Canberra Cl 2 he came to town and was beaten into 2nd spot in a Cl 2 Highway after leading. Is perfectly drawn and very fit.

WHO BUT ROO looked smart winning when resuming last start after being on speed throughout. Looks to be very handy and has claims.

TRUMPED UP is better this time up and after a smart win last start comes into this with a real live hope.


Tough race. MOMACK is racing in great form. He is very fit and likes to get home hard. Recent form is extremely good for this.

FRENCH BONNET looks back to best. last start win was strong but big weight today.

ACHIRA is a bit in and out and is ready to run a beauty.




KALAPOUR is rising a little in grade but gee his debut Aussie run and win was impressive. Does get a 3kg claim here which will help. If he repeats that run he wins.

MR GEE gets a 2kg claim and that’s a big help but bad draw is a concern. Is racing very well and suited to this grade. Big danger.

This Victorian DEEPSTRIKE looks to be on the rise. He finished hard to win a BM 84 last start at Caulfield. That field was better than this race but does go up 5.5kg.


Fascinating race. QUEEN BELLISSIMO is just a very honest mare. Always gives your cash a great run.

AUTHENTIC JEWEL resumes here but has drawn very well and is an honest type who goes well fresh.

Off the draw and receiving a 1.5kg allowance, SALINA DREAMING comes into play. Has had 4 runs this time up and past 3 have been solid placings at this level.


OUR BELLAGIO MISS was strong when resuming when 2nd in similar race. Weighted to run well. Will get back but should dash late.

MALKOVICH may be thrown in here. He just looks perfectly placed and will lead these. Weighted win and win comfortably.

FITUESE has pace too and was a solid 5th when resuming. This race suits a lot.


This is a terrific race for the very much in form MR MOZART. he has talent and can run a particularly strong 1400m. has won his past 2 starts, latest at Gr 3 level against older horses. Could probably jump and lead this all the way. is fit and fast.

VILANA is very honest and in great touch too winning 3 of his 4 starts. Has drawn well enough after the scratchings, and is right up to this.

LOCH EAGLE is gifted and looks nicely placed. Big strider who needs elbow room which he should get here and is honest. Charges at them late.


Fascinating race. Lots of chances. NUDGE doesn’t win often but she does always run on well and this grade suits. Resumes here but has a neat fresh record. Respect her today.

Her stablemate BROOKSPIRE also resumes and has shown a great deal of talent while fresh before. She also has shown improvement each campaign and her trial recently was great. Has placed at this level previously.

WANDABAA has had 4 fairly sound runs this time up and is more than capable when the cards fall her way of winning a race like this. Is very fit.



16:10 (Local Time)

Intriguing race. OLMEDO might cause a shock here. His run at WFA last start wasn’t too bad at all and now that he is 3rd up into this, he looks well placed. Sure to run home well.

BRUTALITY is a good miler. He will get back but he is very fit and is certain to make his presence felt late in this race.

ART CADEAU probably gets a mile back from this gate but he is really racing well and is bound to run on. The weights suit him today and his past 2 starts have been full of merit making ground late each one and placing. Respect.


Great race if for no other reason than to see if this unbeaten mare NORWEGIAN BLISS can keep on winning. She has raced 5 times and won them all but steps up in class a fair bit here. Is 2nd up from a spell at a trip that suits and looks very hard to beat.

VRENELI probably leads these. Won easier race well last start. His best form is when allowed to lead and gets that here.

GRANDE RUMORE is hot and cold but is 3rd up and has a powerful finish on her day. Watch betting.
