Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Wednesday’s midweek meetings, with horse racing tips and analysis for the five best bets of the day. Good luck, punters!
No one who watches midweek racing could have missed the rather impressive way PLUNDERING savaged the line last start here in this grade. It was over 1000m and he was a mile back to the bend but charged late missing by half a length. Is fitter now, is given an extra 300m to work with and is a horse who knows how to win. Big show.
Fascinating affair.I do think Kris Lees brings the winner to town here in SAILOR. He is perfectly suited this grade and last start ran on to grab a solid 4th, beaten just over 2 lengths. Will strip a lot fitter now this time around and the long straight should suit, plus, Jay Mac rides. Get on.
I do like the look of ROCK ARTIST in this. He is a big hit and miss but when things go his way he can sprint well at this level. And with a helping hand from the 1.5kg claim, he looks well placed. Hit the line well when resuming last start in slightly easier grade but his 2nd was full of merit. Is fitter now and has twice won 2nd up.
Tip: ROCK ARTIST
If he runs up to his European form and or his only Aussie start, the number 1 here in NAVAL COLLEGE might blow these away. He has staying talent and being 2nd up should be cherry ripe for this. The 3kg claim is a big help as he drops in grade from his impressive 2nd last start when resuming and on debut in Oz. I’m going to have a good go.
Tip: NAVAL COLLEGE
Form is on the side of BRITISH COLUMBIA here. As is timing. He just seems perfectly placed following a great 2nd when on speed all the way last start at The Valley. Is super fit and is bound to be there throughout. His last win was at this track over this distance when it was a bit damp. Looks too fast.
