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


Gee, I think if we can land $2.30 or better that we should probably go pretty hard into SUPERDEEL. He looks the best placed horse in Australia today. Ran 4th in a Gosford maiden last start over this trip and was beaten 2 lengths. That race was probably 8 lengths stronger than this one. Bad draw but may well ease out of any early battles and find a spot one off the fence, but saying that even if he has to sit 3-deep here his class may prove too good for these. MY DIAMOND BOY can chase him home into 2nd spot for the quinella.

Tip: SUPERDEEL @$2.30

A really good chance to make money here. There has been considerable money for GEISEL in this after his 4 placings this grade from 5 starts thus far. Last start he was heavily backed when a hard finishing 2nd first-up at Newcastle so strips fitter now. In a different maiden at Muswellbrook, INDICATIVE did the same thing and I think he presents here much, much better for the outing. I see them both breaking away so quinella them up, with Indicative being too fast late in the race.

Tip: INDICATIVE @ $2.70

This looks another strong battle and three of them stand out as major hopes, narrowing it down to two, I’d say ACROPHOBIC because he has been backed for a first-up kill, up against MIDSUMMER RAIN for trainer Cam Crockett. The former has switched camps now from John O’Shea to Cody Morgan and recently won a barrier trial impressively. But Midsummer Rain did similar in terms of a trial win too. She previously placed in a  Highway at Randwick and looks in perfect shape for this contest.
