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


There is so much to like about this race. Mainly, from a betting perspective, there only appears to be two legit chances here. They being HIRAISHIN and LORD BRONN. And you should quinella and exacta them up all day. I’m on Lord Bronn to claim the major prize though. Just too many things in his favour not to select him. Firstly, there was support for him overnight. Secondly, he has the rails draw where as his main rival will step from gate 12. And thirdly, the main reason, he has raced at this level a few times and has placed at this level on 7 occasions. So he knows the score. He resumes today and his first-up form, while never winning, has been very sound.

Tip: LORD BRONN @$3.20

A really good chance to make money here. I love the placement of ONEMORECHOICE. He looks deliciously placed and has that fairytale aspect about him too. Is 3rd up from a spell after two very, very good runs to tighten him up, where he placed on both occasions. And comeback rider Dan oldham takes the mount. if he can find cover in say 5th spot to the bend, he should be too fast and too fit late in the race for them. I like PRIDE OF MO to bob up into 2nd spot so a healthy Quinella pay out for them.


I really like the way HAVEN shapes up for this. Blake Spriggs returns to ride him and the last time Blake rode him, he scored at Scone over this trip with just .5less. His two subsequent runs have been very good, when 2nd at Kembla in a Highway then resuming last start at Orange and 4th. Certain to run a blinder.

Tip: HAVEN @ $4.60
