We have scoured the form across the seven races at Port Macquarie today and are expecting premier trainer Kris Lees to have a big day out. We’ve made two of our three tips, including the best bet, Lees runners while a tried and true performer is our final selection of the day.
Port Macquarie is racing on a Soft 6 with the rail out 4m the entire.
Consistent mare FACE LIKE THUNDER (BEST BET) of the astute Kris Lees stable that looks perfectly placed to atone for its last start defeat here today. Settled near the rear before unleashing a good turn of foot to be narrowly beaten at Gosford a fortnight ago. Will be giving them a start but has a good finish on her and will be storming home late. Has gone around against some good types lately including Organza and Chalmers. Hard to toss.
MR TINDALL is a lightly raced gelding that is racing in good form and looks to have found the right race to bounce back into the winners' circle. Has had three runs back this time in and should be peaking for this. Does tend to race on the speed so suggest Aaron Bullock will look to press forward from gate nine. Worth a ticket.
Despite the wide draw NIC’S VENDETTA looks to have found a suitable race and looks hard to go past in the final event of the program here today. Found one too good on the day when beaten by two lengths at Warwick Farm last start so back in this grade is a huge bonus for the gelding. Has the form on the board and will be ready to give this an almighty shake. TAB Highway specialist who has run some ripping races against very good types. The one to beat.
