Our top form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at today’s race meetings and singles out his top three horse racing tips from Bathurst & Sapphire Coast this afternoon.
This is a race worth watching. Both CAPTURED IN TIME and SHE CAN TALK have been backed overnight so they are the obvious quinella bet. Which Ione wins, however? well, I like form shown and so I’m on She can talk. She has had two starts this time up and she has placed in both of them. They have both been in this grade and the latest was at this track. She has drawn inside Captured In Time who may have to ease back to find cover and that head start coming to the bend should make all the difference.
Tip: SHE CAN TALK
No Canberra trainer has been in better form than Rob Potter over the past couple of months. He had a treble at this track recently and again he looks to land a double, one of them being his favourite mare, SCALDED. She looks perfectly placed in this today. Her last visit to this track resulted in a runaway win over 1007m in the mud, coming from 6th at the turn in a Cl 2. Now, that Cl 2 was about 4 lengths harder than this race. To offset that, she has gone up 5kg in the weights but she is in sparkling form and she loves the feel of this track. MISSILE MAGIC is in form too. Quinella them. Looks the bet.
Again, Rob Potter looks to lead in a winner with his consistent mare MORE SHOTS. She has won three on the bounce and looks perfectly placed here. Potter believes she is headed to wins in the city and so she should take care of these. Also loves this track. Will get back but is big, tough, and has a powerful finishing burst.
