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

Probably be a good betting race. When the 2YO filly here called SILK TRAIL last raced she was 9th in a tough city mdn last start. So this is probably easier. Before that she was in a stakes race when 5th. So presumably connections think highly of her. AMELIKA is 3rd up and has her foot on the till. I suggest we quinella this pair. But I think Ciao Uno may edge the other one.

Tip: SILK TRAIL

Good betting race. Pretty much all of them will be solidly supported. SEBOURG may well make it to Saturday grade but over a slightly longer trip. Which opens the door for the luckless and very, very fit BLUFF’N’BLUSTER. He has steadily improved every race start he’s had and he’s now placed at his past 5 starts. All in this grade. Made up a lot of ground late when a strong 3rd in town last start. Drawn to receive the run of the race back in about 6th on the fence. Has a strong finish. Quinella them up.

Tip: BLUFF’N’BLUSTER

There should be a bit of pace here and that will suit the Wyong based filly MY DESIRE. She likes to get back and this track doesn’t really suit that style, but what is in her favour is she is extremely fit. And with a few of the better ones drawn badly, she should just ease in behind them. She does hit the line hard. Drops 3kg on last start when a flashing 2nd over a mile.
