Warwick Farm Betting Preview | Horse Racing Tips

JJust like last night we have small fields yet again for most of the day here.

Thu, 5 Jan, 12:00 AM

Just like last night we have small fields yet again for most of the day here, but a few little intriguing races, especially the first with Melham coming to ride Single Bullet who may be off to the Millions if he wins. The track should be in the good rating with the rail in the true position.

QUADDIES (Races 6-7-8-9)

Skinny: 9 – 2,6 – 1,2,3,15 – 1,7,10,13
Wide: 3,5,7,9 – 2,5,6 – 1,2,5,10,13,14,15 – 1,2,4,6,7,10,13,15

Next Best Bet: R5 N4 IMPOSING LASS
Best Roughie: R9 N1 STAR WARS

R1 - 12:40PM HAPPY 2017 HANDICAP - 1200m

No 1 SINGLE BULLET (Best Bet) Should really be winning this off his debut run where he did a lot wrong yet still savaged the line to only be just beaten in the Wyong Magic Millions race. Melham on board is a good booking and he needs to win this to make the Magic Millions field, where he will be hard to beat if he goes there.





REDOUBLE Was quite good first-up in a race that has since held up (Raiment should have won last week) and he finds a good race here over 1400m. The long run to the turn should suit, as he can work into his gears coming into the home straight.

FIRST APPROVAL Was good behind Tactical Advantage last week in a race that should really hold up even though it was a small field. This is a quickish backup, but that was a soft run fresh and he should be able to rebound quickly.

JAMINZAH Was poor last start behind Achi Baba and I’m willing to forgive that effort after a big maiden win previously. The 1400m of Warwick Farm should suit quite well as the long run to the turn helps him work into his gears and be a chance.

FRANCE Gets blinkers on for the first time here and looks to get a good run. Shinn on for Bowman is no change at all, the weight drop however is something to pay respect to, in what is a super even race

SELECTIONS: No 1 REDOUBLE, No 2 First Approval, No 6 Jaminzah, No 3 France

VALUE RUNNER: No 6 Jaminzah


MAGICAS Gets a good jockey change here with a senior replacing the apprentice from last start. She just didn’t get the best of rides that day and that was the difference between winning and losing. Third-up over 1400m she will be hard to beat.

HARLEM LADY If she is going to win a race again this may well be it. She will be cuddled as much as possible with the big weight and let loose with that big turn of foot she has. If she’s close enough she can blow them away.

LYCIA Comes out of good races in all three runs this time in. This race is a touch easier / much more suitable for her. From barrier 3 at her home track she will be closer in the run and that enhances her chance.

HEARTLINGS Gets a tricky run here, as I think she is more suited to a bigger track even though she has won in the past at the track and distance. The race wasn’t run to suit last start and if she can find her best, she can win.

SELECTIONS: No 3 MAGICAZ, No 1 Harlem Lady, No 5 Lycia, No 4 Heartlings

VALUE RUNNER: No 1 Harlem Lazy


PUMPKIN PIE Comes out of what is one of the best highways I’ve seen at her last start behind Eckstien. She may well of had enough that day given she was a touch slow and over-raced. McEvoy on first-up she’s going to be hard to beat.

YASNAT Put together a great record at her first preparation for Dale which ended with a win in Melbourne. As she is first-up and this is her “last chance” to win a highway given she has won three races, she will be tuned up ready to go.

CHOSEN PRAYER Has just been beaten in 3 good races in as many starts. She drops in grade now to highway level and keeps Shinn which is a big booking. Down in weight too, she will be hard to toss.

NICOF Will hope to get an easy lead here as she is a flying machine, if allowed to get a few cheap / easy sectionals early on they will struggle to run her down.

SELECTIONS: No 9 PUMPKIN PIE, No 1 Yasnat, No 2 Chosen Prayer, No 5 Nicof



No 4 IMPOSING LASS (Next Best Bet) Was good enough first-up on the heavy track and was quite well backed that day too. The conditions didn’t really suit her and she found the line well enough with 60kgs. Down to 50.5kgs here, she should sit just off High Midnight and prove too strong late.




R6 - 3:40PM TAB.COM.AU MILE - 1600m

KINGSGUARD Has found the winning knack now after breaking through two starts ago. The last-start win was super strong and the form has held up since. Down to 53kgs here, he is going to be hard to beat and could make it three on end.

SABINO SPEED Was a strong winner in a two-horse war last start. The step up to 1600m and Warwick Farm should suit quite well as he has had five starts for three wins and a placing. He will be over the odds again due to his trainer and jockey combo.

SEWREEL I have no idea about New Zealand form or about this horse, but I’m throwing him in on the basis that his form looks quite good and that Bjorn has booked Collett. Watch the market.

CAUTHEN'S POWER Was good first-up and has been back to the trials since that run. The trial was good as was the fresh run. The form has held up quite well. He is one from one at the track and has to be considered.

SELECTIONS: No 9 KINGSGUARD, No 5 Sabino Speed, No 3 Sewreel, No 7 Cauthen’s Power

VALUE RUNNER: No 5 Sabino Speed

R7 – 4:20PM SUMMER SPRINT - 1000m

SUNDANCE Looks really well placed here, he is an out and out flyer and that was shown last start with his win at the Sunny Coast. He ran 33.2 his last 600m that day and with 53kgs he will be hard to beat if he does that again.

MR MANHATTAN Back in grade and off a solid trial looks well suited. Forget the Starlight run and go off his two previous runs where was a strong winner. He has a great record at the 1000m and this track and will be hard to beat.

DAL CIELO Will want a softish tempo early and not be run off his feet early on. If he is in touch with them on the turn he could finish off over the top as he is such a classy conveyance.

COSMIC CAMEO Will be right on the hot speed here and has won his past two starts at the T&D and seems to save his best for this track. With no weight in his back he will be hard to hold out.

SELECTIONS: No 6 SUNDANCE, No 2 Mr Manhattan, No 5 Dal Cielo, No 7 Cosmic Cameo

VALUE RUNNER: No 6 Sundance

R8 – 5:00PM #THERACES SPRINT - 1200m

INVIZABEEL Keeps to his best racing fresh and Waller found that key to him last preparation with two strong wins. He returns off a good trial and gets a good run on the map here. With luck from the top of the straight he will be in the finish.

ZIGGY WILLIE Has been racing in great heart as of late and has fantastic form over the 1200m which he has been kept too at all runs this time in. He goes back to his home track where he has a good record and even with the big weight he will be hard to beat.

MEURSALT Was poor when resuming and has been back to the trials. The trial that day was quite good and he looked to be in fine fettle. I like the claim down to 58kgs here and if he can settle just off them he is a major player.

BOGIE Comes out of what looks to be a good race last start, as well as being a strong winner previously to that and is well suited at the weights and after the claim here. She gets a soft run and will be thereabouts.

SELECTIONS: No 3 INVIZABEEL, No 2 Ziggy Willie, No 1 Meursault, No 15 Bogie


R9 – 5:40PM TAB HANDICAP - 1400m

KING DARCI Gets his chance to breakthrough and win a race here. He has been so strong at his last two races without any luck whatsoever. From gate 2 he is going to get a great run and be hard to beat.

STAR WARS (Best Roughie) Could well finish over the top of them here. He will be ridden dead cold and given one last shot at them. He is a winner of two races at this track and has his chance.

DARK STEEL Was overrun late last start in a race that wasn’t run to suit, they put the race on for the backmarkers that day and they finished over the top. This is a softer run on the map here and he will have his chance.

ZAUNKONIG May be looking for further than the 1400m third-up from a spell, but from barrier 17 I think he will go back and hope there is a lot of speed in the race so he can finish over the top of them.

SELECTIONS: No 13 KING DARCI, No 1 Star Wars, No 7 Dark Steel, No 10 Zaunkonig

VALUE RUNNER: No 1 Star Wars
