Our top form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at today’s race meetings and singles out his top three horse racing tips from Murray Bridge this afternoon.
This is a race worth watching. DR DEE DEE and SKILLFUL STEPS have locked horns in the past and Skillful Steps narrowly won when they carried the same weight last campaign. Dr Dee Dee remained in work while the other bloke spelled and he resumes here. He does have a useful first-up record and meets the good Dr just .5kg different for beating him. has the best draw and I suspect he might finish the best late to take the honours again. Quinella them.
Tip: SKILLFUL STEPS
I like the look of BARACUS in this. He looks to drop back in class and with the 3kg claim he actually comes into this rather well at the weights too. Gets the good draw and his last start 2nd when getting home hard in a BM 58 says he’s back in form. Looks tough to beat. Perhaps quinella with BULLET KID here who has won his past two and is on the rise.
This will require a bit of riding skill by in form hoop Todd Pannell. But, I think he and the horse CRYPTO CURRENCY are up to it. They’ve drawn the car park and as such will be trapped very wide. Crypto Currency likes to lead and as he steps up to a mile here, he will find the tempo early a little slower so I’m certain Pannell will push on, conserve energy along the way, and find himself either in the lead or parked up on the outside of the pace. He is very fit and being 3rd up, should be able to ping coming to the bend, establish a lead and hang on.
