Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews Wednesday’s Sale meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all eight races on the card. Good luck, punters!
Rail Position: True, entire circuit
Track Condition: Soft 6
ALMIGHTY WILL is well bred and seems talented having had 2 trials and winning them both. Watch market. UNIQUE BAMBINO has a lot of speed and seems to have gears as well. Was close up 7th on debut in a stakes race. Since spelled and won a trial. Big show. ZEE HOARDER was well beaten on debut but will be better for the run. Can place.
Tip: UNIQUE BAMBINO
Hard to work out. MR ZIGGY has had a fair few starts without winning but he hasn’t been very far away past couple and should be close to speed all the way here. SPILIA has the bad draw but does have the best form. Has placed at this level at past 3 and deserves to breakthrough. Will need cover but does have Ollie on top. Can show up. LEXICOLOGY has had 4 runs and has improved every start. No surprise to see her flash home and win this.
TATIARA has the help of a 1.5kg claim to mitigate the big weight. Has shown in recent starts that she is well up to this and is very fit. CRIMSON ACE is lightly raced but heavy on talent. Has been improving every start and mdn win last start was impressive. Looks well up to this. WILD BREEZE is a nice filly who sat on pace and just out-fought everyone to narrowly win mdn this trip last start. Chance.
Tip: CRIMSON ACE
THE BEDOUIN has been out of the winners’ circle for a long time but is very fit and down sufficiently in grade to suggest a big show is imminent. Did make good ground to place last start in a similar race. BRIGADIER boasts almost an identical description, but instead of placing last start he needs to lift on past couple. Saying that, does have the best overall form. FIREFREE is average but has been just behind placegetters past couple. Can place.
Tip: THE BEDOUIN
GHODELEINE is bred to like it a bit further but has talent winning 2 of 3 starts to date. And recently trialled really well. Can sprint great while fresh. ANGEL LASS won first up in similar race then just behind placegetters last start in a tougher race. Big show. OUR VOLANTIS may need the run as she is resuming here but did win mdn in good style just before spell.
Tip: ANGEL LASS
GENERAL SHORT sat on speed and fought on courageously to win mdn before spell. Resumed with a similar run in BM64 to grab 3rd. Suited this level 2nd up. IKNEWSHEWASMINE has drawn the fence and looms large. Too strong in mdn grade last start. Is 3rd up now and looks well placed. MEAN TO ME resumes here but went to spell after impressively winning mdn. Watch betting.
Lots of cheap pace here which should wilt late making it a nice race for HE’S STRYKING who resumes here. He beat subsequent 2 x winner Bering Sea at his only run then was spelled. Might be pretty handy. PIERRLESS is 2nd up here after a handy 6th in a similar race. Much fitter now and drawn better than most of the chances. EVIL CRY should get back and run on. Is 4th up and looks nicely placed.
Tip: HE’S STRYKING
Interesting race this. TAVIRUN is a real trier and likes to drive to the lead. If he gets to the front and settles he will take running down. AGENTE FISCALE is a real model of consistency and should overcome this poor draw. Won similar race last start. CLEAN ACHEEVA was runner-up in a similar race last start when resuming. Last campaign was close 2nd, while 2nd up!
