Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, looks at today’s meetings and singles out his top three horse racing tips from Muswellbrook & Canberra. Good luck, punters!

Even field here. I think three of them stand out though, they being BANDAHARA, HIDDEN ACE and MAHOGANY BAY. I suggest you box them all up. Of the trio, I’m going for Mahogany Bay. Simply because the weights are in his favour. He’s missed a place at two starts this grade since narrowly winning his maiden here over 1000m. Did make a lot of ground last start when 5th over 1100m at Scone. The longer trip is interesting but he is very fit.


I just love these Federals. This one is for open grade horses and has attracted a terrific field. UP TRUMPZ is in sparkling form and he will go close as he did last start being run down on the line. But these Federals invariably suit those who rush late. So I’m on OUR REVENUE in this. She has been racing without luck but bravely in the city of late. She should be near enough to last near the home turn but she knows this track and will be storming home. Is very well weighted for this.


I am going to back SATIRICAL KNIGHT in this. He has shown that he can run first up and he resumes here. Has placed over 1000m so has speed and won over a mile so has stamina. John Sargent trains him and his form has been a constant improvement curve. He has a big weight here but has also had a couple of stirring trials leading into this. Hardest to beat could be last start maiden winner INCEPTIVE.
