It has been a bit of a spell between Punters Guide publishings, but, we are back today, and ready to go for the big card at Flemington. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – Xxxx Gold 3yo Maiden Plate 1000m

Interesting race of runners here, Brazen Belle stands out here, despite the lack of racing experience. Debutante with good bloodlines that has been said to have a good set of gears over the short trip. Dunn rarely produces ineffective short priced youngsters. Taking on market confidence here.

Top Pick – Brazen Belle
No Next Best – No third dividend

TOP PICK
Ballina Punters Guide

Race 2 – Tursa Maiden Handicap 1000m

Magic Scent went extremely close to breaking maiden last start, instead, came in as the bridesmaid, but, finds a much easier race here then last. The shorter trip here helps, will push to the lead quickly and the short straight at Ballina will be a secret weapon here. Commandeering can’t be discredited here either, who should be fighting Magic Scent for the lead early on. Both have good early transitional speed to overcome wide gates. Commandeering looms as a threat. Uptooit is another that has good top end speed, and has drawn much more favourably and should challenge for the front spot. True chance and can win here.

Top Pick – Magic Scent
Next Best – Commandeering
Longshot – Uptooit

TOP PICK
Ballina Punters Guide

Race 3 – Ballina Fair Bm 58 Handicap 100m

Luke Rolls has the top weighter, Silent Statue here, and, will be carrying 62kgs, which is a concern, but, this horse is dropping significantly in class and, has drawn well enough to get behind the lead pack. Shown good turn of foot previously and, with a bit of luck, can break through and prove hard to catch. Invincible Tammy loves an uptempo race and will get that here. Expected to roll forward and compete for the early lead, and, with the short straight could be the value point. Leah Kilner is also having a great second half of 2018, and has the ride. Rocky Nugget rounds out the chances here, drawn a mid gate, and, will be another putting the pace into this one. Expected to be in the mix late.

Top Pick – Silent Statue
Next Best – Invincible Tammy
Longshot – Rocky Nugget

TOP PICK
Ballina Punters Guide

Race 4 – Thank You Reg Laurie Maiden Plate 1300m

Angel Of War has drawn wide here, but, has been racing consistently enough around this distance to be competitive here. Last start finished a close second (0.1L) and anything close to last effort will be enough here. Deep Blue Sea is another racing in form, and, an Ocean Park maiden is always competitive. Galloway returns to the saddle here after a strong effort last start, just not having enough in the tank to beat Spicers Peak. Sound prospects here. Givemeaminute could be the value point here and is at a current quote at double digits. Third two starts back reads well for this race, as it was against a better field of runners, and, at its best, can upset here.

Top Pick – Angel Of War
Next Best – Deep Blue Sea
Longshot – Givemeaminute

TOP PICK
Ballina Race 4

Race 5 – Tab.com.au Bm 66 Handicap 2650m

Skye Bogenhuber has been the quiet achiever at the moment, and has another top chance here in Stella’s Chance. Winner at only try at this distance and is coming in off a good win a furlong shorter than today. Maps well here and will be hard to beat. Blazing Cheers was a good winner last start over a furlong and a half shorter. Looked like a bit more leg room would suit, and is offered the chance to prove it today. Has the ability and will be close throughout. Shandaara is the best of the rest here. Got in the minors at only effort over this distance and, anything similar to that effort could prove value here. True chance.

Top Pick – Stella’s Choice
Next Best – Blazing Cheers
Longshot – Shandaara

TOP PICK
Ballina Punters Guide

Race 6 – The Mission @ Aquis Farm Class 1 1000m

Champagne Garden has had two first-up efforts and got in the minors both times, will be looking for one better here today against a very beatable field. Race fitness may be a question mark with a 149-day spell, but, quality enough runner to get the job done here. Inwithachance is as the name suggests. Winner last start at same grade, has an extra half furlong to deal with today, but, has the late speed to steal it late. Danger horse. Jameslea World is at a decent enough quote to warrant respect. Won at this distance and is doing well this prep, last two runs can be forgiven when getting stuck in transition and not finding openings.

Top Pick – Champagne Garden
Next Best – Inwithachance
Longshot – Jameslea World

TOP PICK
Ballina Punters Guide

Race 7 – Wardell On The River Hotel Class 3 1400m

Ryan Plumb has the chance to close out what could be a good day out here on Fanx. Fanx is a winner at this distance, Plumb has won twice in the saddle and finds a race that lacks any real chasing speed. Will shoot to the lead and prove hard to track down. Cyclone Path is a threat here. A stalker type that likes to sit just off the speed, if Fanx doesn’t put too much speed into this one, Cyclone Path could capitalise. Flinders Dragon rounds out the day here, Tegan harrison has a good chance to get the upset in the last and has a good strike rate with horses over $10 quotes but under $15 in the last two races at tracks in Northern NSW. Expected to go well here and a win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Fanx
Next Best – Cyclone Path
Longshot – Flinders Dragon

TOP PICK

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Flemington

Newcastle jockey Robert Thorton - by Citrus Zest via Wikimedia (Moonee Valley Punters Guide)

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

It has been a bit of a spell between Punters Guide publishings, but, we are back today, and ready to go for the big card at Flemington. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – The Carbine Club Stakes 1600m
Wild Planet is a clear danger in this one, and, with the rail being true today – it suits horses that are not going to be leading a little better. That wide turn down the Flemington straight will really open the field up for horses running behind the lead pack – this is where it comes down to closing speed, and Ranier has a slight edge over Wild Planet in this department, despite splitting races against one another – the one time that Wild Planet won – it was because Ranier got stuck for most of the straight and still only just missed out. Ranier will be too strong today. Of the others, value could be had in Secret Blaze, who will be running at the lead, and, if a gap is created has the ability to hold it.

Top Pick – Ranier
Next Best – Wild Planet
Longshot – Secret Blaze

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide

Race 2 – Mumm Wakeful Stakes 2000m

Verry Elleegant is where all the money is today currently. So, with the amount of money backing this horse – it wouldn’t be a shock if it loses – however, it won’t. Another one of the Weir standouts this spring, keeps John Allen in the saddle who managed to just scrape the win out last start. Expecting to see another close finish here as there are a lot of even horses in the speed department here, but, Verry Elleegant heads the list. Next Best will be El Dorado Dreaming, who was a little disappointing last start, but, will be better for the fitness. Will go close. The value point in this race will be Tysonic, who has been very easy on the eye last two starts and makes first trip to the ten furlong marker. Previous efforts suggest it should handle it and current listed price is good value.

Top Pick – Verry Ellegant
Next Best – El Dorado Dreaming
Longshot – Tysonic

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide
Race 3 – The Tab Stakes 1200m

Runson is the quickest horse in this race, with a ton of early speed, and enough speed through the middle stages, this horse is going to be extremely hard to beat if at its best. Osbourne Bulls is the next best here that has some serious closing speed that could be enough to catch Runson if able to get the lead. However, the awkward barrier for Osbourne Bulls will mean a very wide run to come home, the Flemington straight is long, which helps – but, Runson is in a world of his own at the moment. So Si Bon can fill in the exotics here, as a former top level runner dropping back to a beatable class.

Top Pick – Runson
Next Best – Osbourne Bulls
Longshot – So Si Bon

Top Pick
Flemington Punters Guide

Race 4 – Lexus Stakes 2500m

Craig Williams and Sixties Groove are a strong duo here. In impressive form, and last start win was a good enough indicator to suggest a competitive effort again here today. Against better horses here, but, a definite chance and value at listed quotes. Jameeh is another horse that is full of potential, which showed in last start win with Zahra as the jockey. Distance a non issue here, as longer the better it seems for Jameeh. Value point here goes to the Waller trained and McDonald ridden, Brimham Rocks. Impressive type that is always close. Win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Sixties Groove
Next Best – Jameeh
Longshot/Value – Brimham Rocks

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide

Race 5 – Coolmore Stud Stakes 1200m

Zousain was gallant in defeat last start when just losing by a whisker to standout young gun, The Autumn Sun, this reads well for this race, as all the late speed will be with Zousain. Written By will likely say, catch me if you can – which is definitely something that Zousain is more than capable of doing. The value marker in the race should the top two fail, will be with the Lean Mean Machine, who will likely put in a flashy finish chasing the lead horses. This race will have a lot of late speed, and, if Written By hasn’t built a strong enough lead – he could be in trouble from a strong group of swoopers.

Top Pick – Zousain
Next Best – Written By
Longshot – Lean Mean Machine

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide

Race 6 – Empire Rose Stakes 1600m

Invincibella has drawn poorly for this race, however, will enjoy the long straight as shown when winning at this track two starts back, with the winning jockey riding again today. Loves racing at Flemington and is yet to do worse than a top three finish. Has the best closing sectionals and should prove hard to beat here. Oohood was an impressive winner two starts back against some classy horses, an effort similar to that, and, it could prove value at current listed quote. Williams has opted for Oohood over Amphitrite in this one – and, surprisingly so. Despite others being favoured here, Amphitrite just can’t be denied, these absolute bullet runs from the back of the field to steal wins is becoming a bit of a trademark for this filly. Expect the same again here today.

Top Pick – Invincibella
Next Best – Oohood
Longshot/Value – Apmhitrite

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide

Race 7 – Aami Victoria Derby 2500m

Thinking Big’s last win was super impressive, the question remains to be answered if that type of run can be sustained over this distance, as it wil need to be against a field of classy horses that enjoy late runs. One that looms as a real danger here is Stars Of Carrum, who sustained a long push to get the win by a small margin at the Valley last start. Stars Of Carrum looked to be able to push on further when winning that race which reads well here. Extra Brut can be forgiven for last run when just get caught in transit and never really being able to find a way through. Will have a wide barrier draw but, will look to sit behind the lead horses in a more favourable position. Has shown a good turn of foot previuosly and will be right in this one.

Top Pick – Thinking Big
Next Best – Stars Of Carrum
Longshot – Extra Brut

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide

Race 8 – Kennedy Mile 1600m

Land Of Plenty ticks a lot of boxes here today. Flemington with a true rail is a dream for back markers, Land Of Plenty fits that bill and has shown exceptional turn of foot so far this spring. Expecting another big finish here from the Weir runner. Main danger here is Cliff’s Edge, who will, like always push for the lead and dare the rest to catch up. If Yendall can make a slip at the right time, Cliff’s Edge may have too big a lead to track down. Value point in this race sits with Hartnell, who, at his best, can beat this field with relative ease – the only question mark with Hartnell these days, is if he is interested in doing so. Showed he still can produce his best though.

Top Pick – Land Of Plenty
Next Best – Cliff’s Edge
Longshot – Hartnell

TOP PICK
Flemington Punters Guide
Race 9 – Furphy Sprint 1100m

From Within is look for five straight here today – finds decent competition from I Am Excited. From Within is proven at this range and has shown a great turn of foot this prep. I Am Excited too, has also shown good agility over the closing furlong, but, a slight edge goes to From Within. Massive value today is in Showpero, who was impressive when winning at Balaklava last start, and, despite a considerable jump in grade – should be competitive here at current listed price of $81.

Top Pick – From Within
Next Best – I Am Excited
Longshot – Showpero

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Moonee Valley

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

It has been a bit of a spell between Punters Guide publishings, but, we are back today, and ready to go for the big card at Hawkesbury. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – Lucrf Super Handicap 1000m

Interesting race here to start the night. A rather open affair on paper, all horses are very closely matched, however, Final Choice gets the nod here. Last two wins were impressive and, closed out both of those races with impressive sectionals. Comes in at a good weight, may have drawn a little wide, but, will push forward quickly and be hard to beat. Propelle is a true chance here. Despite poor first up history, has shown an ability to finish strong, and, will look to do so again here, racing behind the lead pack. In the mix. Sacred Sword has been impressive when grabbing second on both career starts. Will be unperturbed by the big crowd and will run well. Win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Final Choice
Next Best – Propelle
Longshot – Sacred Sword

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 2 – The Westin Melbourne Handicap 2040m

Pleasuring was rather disappointing last start despite grabbing a minor. Finds a field slightly more competitive here, but, will be better for last run. Unproductive at the track, but, lethal over the distance, winning two of four starts. Maps well here and will give benefit of the doubt. Michael Walker and Pierrocity are clear dangers here. Placed previously over 2100m only just missing the win on that occasion. Possess good race fitness and will be in the mix here. Lopartega is the value point here. Dwayne Dunn has the ride, who has been a consistent jockey at Moonee Valley this spring. Lopartega has drawn a little wide, but, will need to run on pace to account for the short straight at the Valley.

Top Pick – Pleasuring
Next Best – Pierrocity
Longshot – Lopartega

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 3 – Chandler Macleod Vobis Gold Star 1500m

Widgee Turf is the one to be on here. Dropping in class, will need to carry 60kgs for it, but, is the best horse in this field. Strong finisher, sectionals suggest a quick finish, drawn well, but, will drop back early on. Late strider that will be hard to keep at bay if Zahra can find a seam. Iconoclasm would be the top pick here, if not for being consistently inconsistent. Current favourite at time of writing, and, will more than likely be that at jump. Iconoclasm has his followers, but, needs to keep up with last races efforts to be in this one. Nangawooka won for us here three starts back at big odds ($15), and is double that value here today. Jumps sharply in class, but, this horse thrives in stronger surroundings. Expect a bold finish.

Top Pick – Widgee Turf
Next Best – Iconoclasm
Longshot – Nangawooka

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 4 – Msc Signs Handicap 2040m

Zahspeed, at its best – is better than any other runner in this race. Multiple winner at this distance, winner at class and has had most success on the going expected tonight. Drawn perfectly on the rail and will look to push forward and lead from start to finish. Good value and over the odds. The Lord Mayor is another that can’t be denied here. Winner of two from four at this range, dropping back in distance which suits, as it was racing out of its depth last two starts. Expect a better effort here. Mr.Garcia could be the value point here. Impressive type that is always there abouts. Winner at range and John Allen is yet to lose on the 6-year-old gelding. Definite danger.

Top Pick – Zahspeed
Next Best – Lord Mayor
Longshot – Mr.Garcia

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 5 – Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge Ht3 955m

Esperance is the form horse in this race. Winner of last two, winner at distance but, stepping up slightly in class. However, speed over the short distances suggests that Esperance will be first past the post. Hugh Bowman is 2/2 in the saddle, and, will be looking to complete the hat-trick here today. Biggest danger will be in Prezado, a horse that has a ton of potential, but, rarely actualizes it on race days. Grabbed a minor on two of three starts after spell, and will have race fitness headed into this one. True chance. Essence Of Terror could be a good option here as well, fast start, and, will look to go straight to the front at the start – but will have a lot of company and will need a good start from the wide barrier to achieve that. If not overworked early on – will be right in this one.

Top Pick – Esperance
Next Best – Prezado
Longshot – Essence Of Terror

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 6 – Sweeney Estate Agents Handicap 1200m

Runson was super impressive when winning last start over the five furlongs, has an extra furlong to deal with today which could be a question mark. Stephen Baster is returning for the ride after strong win last start. Runson is yet to win over this distance and is more suited to the five, but, will get benefit of the doubt here over the six furlong marker. Captain Punch has drawn awkwardly, but, is another one of those horses that is going to be right in this one. Will look to start fast and push for the early lead, has the stamina to go from post-to-post here and a win wouldn’t be out of turn. Stellar Collision is another one that can’t be denied here in a very competitive field. Winner at track and distance previously, winner at class and a consistent performer when fresh. Expect a bold showing.

Top Pick – Runson
Next Best – Captain Punch
Longshot – Star Collision

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 7 – Ladbrokes Manikato Stakes 1200m

Sunlight despite not being overly exposed to this kind of a race, is the one to beat here. Riding extremely light and ready to fly. Drawn a gun run, will bolt to the lead out of the gate and be hard to track down. This 3-year-old filly has that something special, and, much like Redzel, is one of those horses that excels when in front. One to beat. Voodoo Lad can’t be discounted here. Winner at this track and distance on two from two starts, has shown great late speed previously and is a much better chaser than leader. Expect a bold finish. Malaguerra is just the type of horse that loves to upset big races. Done it many times before, has been rested to be fresh just for this race. At its best – can win here. First up record is very eye watering and will be competitive here.

Top Pick – Sunlight
Next Best – Voodoo Lad
Longshot – Malaguerra

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Race 8 – Mitchelton Wines Handicap 1500m

Tamasa is the one to be on here. Impressive winner last two starts, has shown a great turn of foot this prep and rates on top as best of the day. Won two of three starts at this distance, steps up slightly in class, but, has the speed and ability to win this one. One to beat. Kings Command can’t be looked over either. Get’s its normal jockey Ben Thompson back in the saddle here today and, the duo have combined to win at this range and class previously. Dropping in class and carrying a little bit of weight, but, will be right in this one. Call It A Day could be the value point here. Winner three times on five starts at this distance, finds a race similar to last win and can win this.

Top Pick – Tamasa
Next Best – Kings Command
Longshot/Value – Call It A Day

TOP PICK
Moonee Valley Punters Guide

Bet Chimps Punters Guide – Hawkesbury

Newcastle jockey Robert Thorton - by Citrus Zest via Wikimedia (Hawkesbury Punters Guide)

By Citrus Zest [Creative Commons], via Wikimedia Commons

It has been a bit of a spell between Punters Guide publishings, but, we are back today, and ready to go for the big card at Hawkesbury. Looking for plays – we have you covered here. Our last guide can be found HERE

Race 1 – Arcadia Entertainment Maiden 1000m

Tye Angland has been racing like a man possessed of late, and, he is in a position here, where he is expected to continue his hot form on the Godolphin trained runner – Evict. Coming in fresh after a lengthy break, prior to that ran on a game second with Angland in the saddle. Finds an easier field here and should be hard to beat. Magnolia Power is the main danger here. Lees has said previously that he expects this horse to go through the classes soon, and, this could be the first step in the right direction. Impurity could be the value point here. Coming in off a layoff but, solid form prior to that. Jason Collett enjoys the Hawkesbury track and a win wouldn’t shock.

Top Pick – Evict
Next Best – Magnolia Power
Longshot – Impurity

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide

Race 2 – Daily Press Cg&e Class 1 Handicap 1400m

Mark Newnham looks to continue his strong spring campaign here with an early Hawkesbury winner on Shouson, who has been in good form heading into this race. Koby Jennings has the ride and the pair combined for an impressive win against a similar field last start. Drawn better than last start and should be in the mix here. Show Me The Honey is the other short priced runner here, and has legitimate claims. Impressive second last start, Hutchings returns to the saddle, the weight is a concern, but, has a strong enough gait to overcome this. Chamfer is the value point in this race. Winner at the track last start with Spriggs on board, won with ease, and, shouldn’t find the extra half furlong any trouble. Win wouldn’t shock here.

Top Pick – Shouson
Next Best – Show Me The Honey
Longshot/Value – Chamfer

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide

Race 3 – Coca-cola Amatil Maiden Handicap 1300m

A debutant Snitzel runner has caught the eye today. Josh Parr will take the honours on the first mount here on Wokurna. Drawn a little awkwardly here but, will be right in this one. Training reports suggest it will run on the heels of the lead runners and swing home late. Watch market movement here. Stock Up is the listed favourite at the time of writing and, is coming fresh and has placed fresh previously. With a good start – will be right in this. Time Of Glory is the value point here. Placed when fresh previously, fresh again here today and drawn well enough to get a good early spot in cover. Can test these.

Top Pick – Wokurna
Next Best – Stock Up
Longshot – Time Of Glory

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide

Race 4 – Forever Gleam Prov & Ctry Maiden 1300m

Jonjo’s Comet is an interesting prospect here. Another Parr runner for the day here, and, has drawn a little awkwardly. Has the early pace to get out behind the lead pack and settle in. Could be hard to beat here. All The Wine is another interesting runner here in this competitive little race. Coming in with good form lines, decent enough draw, and, will look to sit midfield early on in cover. If a bit of luck can happen later on in the race – All The Wine could be hard to keep out. The favourite Wild Kingdom, can’t be denied a mention here. Drawn well, will have gear changes and is running fresh after a considerable layoff – race fitness is the only question here.

Top Pick – Jonjo’s Comet
Next Best – All The Wine
Longshot/Value – Wild Kingdom

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide
Race 5 – Bsg Benchmark 64 Handicap 1100m

Natalia was super impressive when winning on debut by 2.8L. Comes in today after a long spell of 166-days and will be expected to run well again here at this distance. Last win was over the five furlongs and will be hitting five and a half today. Drawn wide, but, has a great amount of late speed to recover the ground she is expected to relinquish early. One to beat. Jexerlent has dropped in class significantly for this race to get back on form. However, comes in at the weights unfavourably to do so. Unbeaten at track and distance, and is a winner at this class previously. Win won’t shock here. Dream I Can is the best of the rest here. Adkins has the ride and, is another significant class dropper here. Has shown great turn of foot before and is yet to be out of the money at track and distance.

Top Pick – Natalia
Next Best – Jexerlent
Longshot – Dream I Can

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide

Race 6 – Hawkesbury Living Maiden Plate 1500m

Merican ran an eye catching second last start, and, running near that level again here today would be more than enough in what maps as a softer race. Main danger here looms in Saintly Sunrise, who is the current listed favourite. Coming in on the back of a fourth that doesn’t sound impressive but, was against a stronger field of runners and made up a lot of ground late. Will be in the minors at worst here. Timeless Melody is a non winner after fifteen starts, and, today is as tough an assignment as ever. Runs better when the ground is a little churned and gets that here today. A good start and a bit of luck in the middle stages and Timeless Melody could finally break that duck

Top Pick – Merican
Next Best – Saintly Sunrise
Longshot – Timeless Melody

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide

Race 7 – Richmond Club Group F&m Class 1 1400m

Segalas is the best of the day here – but, not a great deal of value to be had. Impressive runner coming in on the back of a blistering win as odds on last start, odds on again here today and will prove hard to beat. Of the others, Song And A Prayer and Cuban Sizzle are the main dangers, but, it would take a very poor ride for Segalas to not ebat this field.

Top Pick – Segalas
Next Best – Song And A Prayer
Longshot/Value – Cuban Sizzle

TOP PICK
Hawkesbury Punters Guide

Race 8 – Livamol Class 2 Handicap 1800m

Mohican and Kathy O’Hara are a dangerous combo, hitting the minors on all four of their last four runs together. Both have combined for a win previously, and, after a prep of knocking on the door – should be right in the mix again today, and, will hopefully be able to get over that bump. Rated on top. Devil’s Lair disappointed first-up last start when barely avoiding finishing last. Second up today, and is a winner second up previously. Needs sharp improvement on last start – but is capable of doing so. Godunov can’t be denied here, unbeaten in two runs at the track, winner at class, main question mark here is the distance. Would have rated on top if it wasn’t at a distance that could be out of its range – today is the test.

Top Pick – Mohican
Next Best – Devils Lair
Longshot/Value – Godnuov
