Wednesday Gosford & Mornington Tips - 30th January
Our best bet of the day is looking for a get square after being heavily backed last time out – and we think she will get it too!
We have found a few serious chances at Mornington and Gosford that look well placed and will give their backers a great sight. Our top pick is out of the strong Godolphin stable and looks to have found a very winnable race. Heavily backed last time out, she narrowly missed getting the cash but looks the goods to go one better here.
Mornington is race on a Good 4 with the rail out 5m entire circuit.
Gosford is racing on a Good 4 with the rail true.
Gosford Race 1 - 1:25PM TAB.com.au Class 2 Handicap (1600 Metres)
BULL MARKET looks a standout in the opening event of the program at Gosford today. This Team Snowden gelding will be fit and ready to fire third-up and getting out to the mile now looks ideal. Just needs luck to be a serious player.
1st: No1 BULL MARKET 2nd: No3 Uber Lux; 3rd: No4 Faith in Kind; 4th: No2 Resonare
Gosford Race 5 - 3:45PM Gosford Quarries Conditional Benchmark 70 Handicap (1100 Metres)
After finishing 1.5 lengths behind And So It Goes at Warwick Farm last start INVINCIBLE GANGSTA (NEXT BEST BET) shapes as the one to beat here today. This gelding has a great record when second- up (3:1-0-1) and with the perfect gate draw he will take a power of beating. Expect ‘The Gangsta’ to go bang!
1st: No2 INVINCIBLE GANGSTA 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No4 Second Island; 3rd: No8 Roman Typhoon; 4th: No5 Fine Hero
Mornington Race 3 - 4:30PM Avis Mornington Plate (1200 Metres)
NO SHAME resumed from a 14-week spell with a solid effort finishing a length behind Remuera at Yarra Valley three weeks back. Was trapped wide for a good portion of the race and was first-up. The money was on so the Anthony Freedman-trained runner was expected to go well, which she did. Second-up she looks a strong chance.
1st: No11 NO SHAME 2nd: No10 Lady Can Stay; 3rd: No8 Just Like Magic; 4th: No4 Congratulate
Mornington Race 5 - 5:40PM Ladbrokes Back Yourself Hcp (1000 Metres)
The Mick Price-trained HIGH RATIO is first-up since August but going on his last run before a break he is definitely worth following. Ran fifth last time out in the Group 3 Vain Stakes behind Tony Nicconi. Prior to that ran into the likes of the brilliant Written By and actually has a win over Thousand Guineas runner-up, Fundamentalist. Keep an eye on any positive market moves. Danger.
1st: No1 HIGH RATIO 2nd: No3 Bolt Type; 3rd: No4 La Pomme de Pin; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No8 Leveraged
Mornington Race 7 - 6:45PM Ladbrokes Odds Boost Hcp (2030 Metres)
*SCRATCHED* ROCK DOVE (BEST BET) is out of the astute Godolphin stable and will prove hard to beat despite the wide draw here today. Looked the winner only to be nabbed in the shadows of the post when beaten by Stornaway at Cranbourne a fortnight back. Has the form to give this an almighty shake and is building towards another win. Gets a 2kg swing on the winner in this race. Can turn the tables.
1st: *SCRATCHED* No11 ROCK DOVE 2nd: *SCRATCHED* No6 Here Comes Lenni; 3rd: No2 Charlie’s World; 4th: No7 Stornaway
