Thursday Racing Tips - 2nd August

It’s Cup day at Coffs Harbour and we have identified a few key hopes that look hard to go past and a top pick at Hawkesbury that will prove difficult to beat.

Wed, 1 Aug, 12:00 AM


Coffs Harbour has its big Cup meeting today and we like a few chances that look well-placed and will be very competitive. Our pick of the day is a Kim Waugh-trained galloper who looks a serious play at the Hawkesbury meeting.

Coffs Harbour Race 4 - 2:15pm Schweppes Class 3 Showcase Handicap (1200 Metres)


Consistent mare LOOSE GOOSE has drawn to get the run of the race and will be very competitive here today. Looked good when runner-up to Patriot at Grafton last start and will strip fitter second-up here today. Looks to have found a very winnable race. Sticking with her.



1st: No3 LOOSE GOOSE 2nd: No1 Lawan; 3rd: No2 Rafha’s Choice; 4th: No5 Clang’s Victory

Coffs Harbour Race 6 - 3:25pm Coffs Harbour Toyota Daniel Baker Showcase Sprint (1200 Metres)


STILL UNDAUNTED is racing in great form this preparation and will be hard to beat here today. Stormed home to be beaten by 2 lengths at Grafton last start and we expect he will be running home hard once again, hopefully first past the post. Has the form and looks ready to atone for his last start defeat here today. Sticking with him.



1st: No13 STILL UNDAUNTED 2nd: No14 Under the Thumb; 3rd: No8 Alot Like Home; 4th: No4 Hard

Coffs Harbour Race 7 - 4:05pm Carlton Draught Coffs Harbour Cup (1600 Metres)


Expecting a huge run from the Mathew Dunn gelding ZAMEX (NEXT BEST BET) in today’s Coffs Harbour Cup over 1600m. Looked good when taking out the Maclean Cup on this track defeating Landmarks by 2 lengths and will appreciate the extra distance rise. Can make it successive victories here today.



1st: No12 ZAMEX 2nd: No7 Curragh; 3rd: No4 Sure and Fast; 4th: No9 Feelin the Love

Hawkesbury Race 8 - 4:20pm Hawkesbury Race Club Motel Benchmark 67 Handicap (1800 Metres)


Hard to go past the lightly-raced, Kim Waugh-trained WHITE BOOTS (BEST BET) that will be aiming to make it successive victories here today. Proved too good when defeating Serious Dancer by 1.4 lengths at Cessnock last start and has placed at his only attempt on the track. Has won three from his five starts to date, the one to beat.



1st: No4 WHITE BOOTS 2nd: No2 Another Snappy; 3rd: No5 Varuska; 4th: No3 Gravitate

Coffs Harbour Race 8 – 4:45PM Bellbowrie Motors Merv Mercer Showcase Mile – Class 2 HCP (1600 Metres)


EVOPEX chased hard to defeat Editors on this track last start and looks well-placed to take out the final event of the program here today. Always gives his all and looks to have the right race to make it successive victories here today. Drawn a slight concern but plenty of class. Big show expected.



1st: No1 EVOPEX 2nd:  No3 Gordon’s Leap; 3rd: No4 Presscott; 4th: No9 Real Time Warrior
