Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at today’s race meetings and singles out his top three horse racing tips from Wagga on a Heavy 8 this afternoon.
What a chess match this race is. Because we just don’t know what GIRLS ARE READY will do over this trip. She’s rated higher than these but for much shorter races and has never won beyond 1400m or even raced further than 1500m. And she is up against an English import called KITZBUHEL who just might be panels of the fence better than these. He can go on wet ground and scored under a big weight last start this trip at 2nd start in Australia. Just looks a really safe bet to my eye. Let’s hope so.
I do like horses who have displayed talent while fresh. So that’s why I’m all over IN DE SUN IWILCOME. Strange name, but the 3YO filly has ability and being 3rd up in this she looks very nicely placed. That’s providing she can plough through this very heavy ground. Which she could very well do as her only start on a rain effected track was in a much harder race at Hawkesbury when she was on speed all the way and was beaten half a length. This is no gimme as it’s a strong bush Cl 2 but I suspect she is city grade and as such can bob and win.
Tip: IN DE SUN IWILCOME
I do think this galloper REDICON is well placed today. Given he goes well on a heavy track, this looks ideal. He has been transferred to the Ron Weston & John Nisbet barn and has had a couple of 1000m goes for them, showing promise late. Now he is fully wound up, being 3rd up, over a trip he prefers and down in class. I think he just swamps these late.
