Tuesday Racing Tips - 23rd April
Five three-year-olds have taken the eye on what is a handy Tuesday afternoon of racing.
With spring and the majority of autumn finished, the three-year-olds which didn’t make the cut get their respective chances to go through their grades. We’ve picked out five three-year-olds that will be winning races beyond today.
Ballarat is racing on a Good 4 with the rail out 8m from 600m to WP, True remainder.
Wagga is a Good 4 with the rail out 6m from 1400m to WP, True remainder.
Wagga Race 1 - 1:00pm William Farrer Hotel Tye Angland Medal Maiden Handicap (1000 Metres)
A filly by Shamexpress which cost $130,000 as a yearling, EXROCKA will have her first start for new trainers Emma and Lucy Longmire after riding a hot speed and running a brave third on debut at Nowra for John O’Shea. With race experience and getting back in trip to 1000m expect a very bold showing.
1st: No4 EXROCKA 2nd: No2 Outta Reach 3rd: No1 Freundin 4th: No3 Coolyboss
Ballarat Race 4 - 2:30pm Suez Maiden Plate (1000 Metres)
Being out of the same family as Black Caviar, the decision to geld the son of Bel Esprit would have been a tough one for connections but could have also made him into a real racehorse going on his three jump outs at Cranbourne. JIMENEZ cantered to the line in his first two jump outs before being really asked to win his third. He’s ready!
1st: No7 JIMENEZ 2nd: No8 Scipio 3rd: No2 Governor Landy 4th: No11 Bobby Rocks
Ballarat Race 6 - 3:30pm Porter Plant Class 1 Handicap (1600 Metres)
Blinkers replace winkers on VIGERE (NEXT BEST BET) which should be enough for him to claim his second career win. He did too much work in the early and middle stages of the Group 2 Alister Clark before just being outgunned at Pakenham more recently. The Fiorente gelding will either lead or sit outside of the speed, depending how the early scenario unfolds, but he should be hard fit sixth-up to hold off his rivals.
1st: No5 VIGERE 2nd: No13 Shock Shock 3rd: No2 Bill The Bee; 4th: No4 Tan Check
Ballarat Race 7 - 4:00pm Hygain Winner’s Choice Bm64 Handicap (1100 Metres)
To stay out of trouble, the wide draw from the sprint shoot at Ballarat could be ideal for GINGER JONES (BEST BET) after overcoming terrible bother last start at Cranbourne to claim maiden success. The half to Group 1 winner Silent Sedition has nice upside leading into this third-up assignment and can hopefully find cover in the three-wide line, potentially behind either Air Gordon or First Diamond.
1st: No7 GINGER JONES 2nd: No9 Bionics 3rd: No3 Battle Master 4th: No4 First Diamond
Ballarat Race 9 - 5:00pm Hygain Winner’s Choice Bm64 Handicap (1400 Metres)
Two impressive jump outs at Werribee and Flemington prior to a likeable first-up maiden win suggested that BRUTAL POWER was in for a handy campaign. A positive ride from Jordan Childs is expected considering the wide draw so look for the gelding to be right in the finish.
1st: No4 BRUTAL POWER 2nd: No10 Vainglorious 3rd: No8 Unbeknown; 4th No7 Shake On It
