Sunday Racing Tips - 21st July
We have found a few key hopes racing at Pakenham and Coffs Harbour that will take a power of beating and prove hard to beat.
We have identified a few key players racing at Pakenham and Coffs Harbour that are racing in good form and looks well placed here today. Our top pick goes around at Pakenham and comes out of the Leon & Troy Corstens yard. A Synthetic track specialist with two wins and a placing from three starts on the surface, he shapes as a major player in this.
Pakenham is racing on Synthetic with the rail True.
Coffs Harbour is a Soft 5 with the rail +2m W/P – 1000m, +5m 1000m – 350m where cutaway applies, True remainder.
Coffs Harbour Race 2 - 1:25PM Any Entertainment Class 3 Handicap (1415 Metres)
It was hard not to notice the way ROGUE MISSILE hit the line first-up and we are banking on a similar effort today. The seven-year-old flew home from near last to go down narrowly to Just Sizzling at Grafton on June 30. Has drawn 11 so is likely to get back again, however, if there is speed on then watch this guy power home late.
1st: No6 ROGUE MISSILE 2nd: No5 Elitzaam; 3rd: No7 Hot Scene; 4th: No3 Oakfield Jet
Pakenham Race 8 - 3:29PM Ultrasigns Class 1 Handicap (1200 Metres)
Sticking with the last start winner KIPKETER that’s ready to make it successive victories after breaking through for his maiden victory on this track last start. Let go with a sharp turn of foot to put paid to his rivals in the straight when racing away to a two-length victory. Drawn wide but if he gets cover in running watch out for him down the straight. Winning hope.
1st: No3 KIPKETER 2nd: No1 Tom’s Knight; 3rd: No2 Blood Oath; 4th: *SCRATCHED* No5 Luck Favour
Pakenham Race 9 - 4:09PM Once Bitten Twice Smitten BM70 Handicap (1400 Metres)
Despite the awkward draw, *SCRATCHED* TITAN BLINDERS (BEST BET) is the one to beat going on his 4.5 length romp at Ballarat a fortnight ago. Led and gave nothing else a chance and will look to adopt similar tactics here today. Expected to prove hard to run down in the straight.
1st: *SCRATCHED* No14 TITAN BLINDERS 2nd: No10 Dalswinton; 3rd: No9 Peko; 4th: No3 Fast Plan
Coffs Harbour Race 7 - 4:43PM Sawtell Golf Club Class 1 Handicap (1012 Metres)
RIOLI is the class runner of the field which is why he has to lump 60kgs today. Comes into this second-up after finishing seventh to Tambo’s Mate at Doomben on June 19. Has placed twice second-up previously and nearly pulled off a TAB Highway win in December last year when narrowly beaten by Ori On Fire. Drawn two and should be thereabouts at the finish.
1st: No1 RIOLI 2nd: No5 Spirit of Cherokee; 3rd: No8 Ted’s Dream; 4th: No14 Secrets No Mor
Pakenham Race 10 - 4:49PM Sportsbet - The Least You Can Do Winter Synthetic Stayers Heat 1 (2200 Metres)
Looks a perfect race for ABLE ENGINE (NEXT BEST BET) to bounce back after going down by half a length behind Sebeat on this track a fortnight back. Chased hard in the straight but found one too good on the day and has drawn well so expect to see this galloper settle behind the tempo and have the last say at them in the straight. Key player on latest efforts.
1st: No4 ABLE ENGINE 2nd: No3 Ripcord; 3rd: No10 Dalmatia; 4th: No6 Rock The Bowle
