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

This looks like your classical ‘put in take out’ race. Surely form stands up and SURF SONIC just sits back in about 5th until they swing then goes bang? Surely! Greg Ryan has the mount and he knows Narromine better than anyone. This will be Surf Sonic’s 3rd run this time up. Last start was a solid 4th in a race that was about 8 lengths stronger than this one. For the quinella bet, MUDGEGONGA, who has the bad draw but good recent form at this level.


I think with the scratching of Attuned, this race looks likely to fall to THE POET. Many thought that at his last start too, when he was actually on debut. He had trialled particularly pleasingly, but come race day, despite being very, very heavily tried in betting, he wilted late in the race. He was there to just after the bend but gave ground final stages. Speaking of stage, I think it all got to him. Today, no crowds, much more like training and trial day so he should improve a great deal.


Intriguing race. RED AXE beat JAILBREAK 2 runs back. Jailbreak, a bit fitter the next time, beat Red Axe and between them was AND THERE IS MORE. All 3 clash again here. At the weights, Jailbreak is worse off. But he was so dominant last start winning by a widening near 5 lengths you’d just have to say he loves racing out in the Central West. Is 3rd up now and drawn the 2 gate. Quinella and trifecta him with the other pair. But, he’s very fit and ready to win again.
