Sunday Racing Tips - 12th August
Great meeting at Narromine with the Narromine Cup today’s feature event. We have identified a few gallopers that look primed for victory.
Sunshine Coast and Narromine are the meetings our selections come from with our tip of the day looking to make it three on the trot and we can’t see it why it won’t happen.
Narromine is racing on a Good 4 with the rail True.
Sunshine Coast is a Soft 5 with the rail True.
Sunshine Coast Race 3 - 1:34PM McCain Maiden Handicap (1800 Metres)
Drawn to get the run of the race sees SIR PLUCKA ready to breakthrough for his much-deserved maiden victory. Narrowly beaten by Rock Dancer on this track last start and will be looking to atone that narrow defeat here today. Serious chance in this field.
1st: No4 SIR PLUCKA 2nd: No3 True Raider; 3rd: No1 Roulette Royal; 4th: No2 Satisfied
Narromine Race 3 - 1:46PM Narromine Shire Council Benchmark 63 Handicap (1300 Metres)
Hard to see anything upsetting the consistent A MARTIN PLACEPICK (BEST BET) who’s won his past two starts and is looking to make it three on the trot here today. Chased hard to defeat Harry’s New Shoes at Warren last start to go with a half a length victory at Wellington a month back. Has the form, hard to beat.
1st: No2 A MARTIN PLACEPICK 2nd: No3 Malverna; 3rd: No6 Long Lasting; 4th: No4 Victare
Narromine Race 5 - 2:56PM Narromine Cup (1600 Metres)
Sticking with MAGIC OVER THE BAY (NEXT BEST BET) to take out this year’s Narromine Cup over 1600m. Gone too far back before making steady ground when beaten by A Magic Zariz at Warren last start. Will strip fitter and has a handy record over the distance. Small field suits, big show expected.
1st: No6 MAGIC OVER THE BAY 2nd: No1 A Magic Zariz; 3rd: No4 Still Undaunted; 4th: No3 Annandale Lass
Sunshine Coast Race 8 - 4:29PM Bill Johnston Farewell Class 1 Handicap (1000 Metres)
Looks a perfect race for HI FIVER to make it successive victories in the final event of the program on the Sunshine Coast here today. Proved too good when defeating Squall by 2.2 lengths at Gatton a fortnight back. Drawn well and looks hard to beat on current form. Sticking with him.
1st: No6 HI FIVER 2nd: No4 Takes Time; 3rd: *SCRATCHED* No9 Mymming; 4th: No13 Morion
Narromine Race 8 - 4:41PM Kool Ice Class 1 Handicap (Scaled -1.0kg) (1200 Metres)
THE ROUSEABOUT is a lightly-raced galloper that’s resumed from a spell with a tough win at Warren and can make it successive victories here today. Looked good when defeating Morotai by 1.3 lengths last start and can measure up to this grade in the final event of the program at Narromine. Drawn well, key player.
1st: No1 THE ROUSEABOUT 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No4 Meliboea; 3rd: No7 Blinkin Dusty; 4th: No9 Rident Home
