Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at today’s race meetings and singles out his top three horse racing tips from Nowra  and   Mudgee   – he is confident. Good luck, punters!

Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott bring this well bred filly RAAHIYAH to the bush, first up from a spell. She was immature and failed to flatter on debut last prep when 5th, in a stronger race. Since her time away she has built up as seen with two strong city trials. This looks an easy kill for her and she has been well backed overnight. perhaps toss in SEA STITCH who gets back and can run on for 2nd.


Interesting race. I know that FRENCH RESPONSE is out of form but gee on her best form she wins this with her head on her chest. Gets a 2kg claim here which means five of the horses in the field carry more weight than her. Theoretically she should have about 5kg more than all of them. She is 3rd up here so is now super fit and the long straight will advantage her. I’m getting on at the big odds each way. May throw in the well tried CASINO KID for 2nd.


Again, we have another case of a horse coming back in grade and getting a weight allowance with a kid on. That’s a double whammy of help. Her name is PAMELA and last start with 60.5kg in the saddle, in a tough Class 3, she ran 3rd, beaten 1.5lengths which means she ran 1;23;02 that day. That time would win this. Now, look at the fact she is 4th up, ready to win….and gets in here, in an easier race with 56.5kg. Get on.
