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

 

Oh this looks like a great betting race. I really like last start winners in these type of races but conundrum this time around. There are 4 last start winners and I think all 4 will fight it out. I lean towards HEMMERLE. He seems to have improved since changing stables a couple of months back and his last start win over 1425m at Moruya at this same level was very dominant on a wet track. The Gai and Adrian trained MAPLE GOLD won on debut over 1500m and looks tough but is up in grade, distance and weight so I think as brave as he will run, Hemmerle claims him late.

Tip: HEMMERLE @$8.00

A really good chance to make money here. This mare UNDERGROUND MUSIC looks perfectly placed by her trainer Kurt Goldman. She was a terrific 2nd when resuming at Moruya in a loaded Cl 3 after settling well back over 1200m. Really charged. Fitter now. Is a city Highway winner and more importantly, she is trained here. Plus, has a great 2nd up record. Just can’t wait to back her.

This does look a ready-made race for the ever improving, albeit slowly, Warwick Farm 3YO, FENTON. It’s taken him a few starts to get the idea of racing in his head but last start when he made ground late at Nowra when 3rd in this grade over 1100m, he looked like he had worked it all out. That track was heavy that day and he just kept plugging through it. Long straight here should suit and being 3rd up makes him very fit and very ready. FILLE CHEESESTEAK can finish hard late for 2nd.
