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

I feel like this is going to map and unfold perfectly for MEMPHIS ROCK. he can sit off the speed and come home hard which he will need to do here as both CELESTIAL SHOWER and CHAP’S DREAM will go like scalded cats early. They have drawn next to one another and will engage in an ego dash to see who leads. The result will be they should fold up and this will suit the 2YO Memphis Rock. Perhaps toss the other speed pair in for trifecta purposes.


I suggest you get on this POLISH TRAIN. he was a good thing beaten last start in this grade at $21. Drew wide, sat out there all way and under difficult circumstances made a ton of ground late to finish 3rd. Substantial upgrade in jocks this time with Greg Ryan going on and the field looks a little easier. With the 1.5kg claim VONNEGUTESQUE looms as the one to run 2nd.


Very even field with two horses resuming being the ones I like. They are HOLY REIGN for Kim Waugh and JE SUIS TYCOON. One will drive to the lead the other will be out the back door. And it’s the one who will be storming home, Je Suis Tycoon, who I fancy in this. She has improved every campaign thus far and will appreciate this track. Gets in well with the claim and boasts Gr 1 performers: Osborne Bulls, Ringa Ringa Rosie, Viridine and Dashing Eagle in her rich pedigree. Has a bit of class about her too.
