Harness racing selections: Friday August 20

Two meetings to look at on Friday, with my attention at Mildura and Albion Park. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.

Mildura
Best Bet: Race Four Number 4 Chalkncheddar

He has had a few chances to break the maiden tag but I do feel he gets a golden opportunity here. Attempted to lead throughout here last Friday and was run down late when second. Looks like he should get the lead again and prove hard to run down.

Next Best: Race Five Number 9 Cemetery Bay
This three year old has looked good since day one at the trials and he has translated that to race day. There was a bit of quality about his win here last Friday, producing sharp late splits in bolting up. Has a tricky second row draw, but got more upside than most and confident he can win again.

Value: Race Nine Number 7 Fire House Rock
Banking on the polemarker holding the front. If that does eventuate, which I assume it will, then this gelding can get a suck run in behind. Just got shuffled back from an identical draw last Friday but was solid enough in defeat. Think he can land leaders back and 1×3 at odds, he’s worth a spec.

Albion Park
Best Bet: Race Eight Number 1 Arma Veyron

Pretty keen this mare can make it 2/2 since arriving in Queensland. First run in this part of the world saw her bolt up at Redcliffe and ran sharp time in doing so.

Drawn the pole, has the gate speed to hold a forward spot, likely lead and prove very hard to get past. Best on the program, comfortably.

Next Best: Race Five Number 1 In Chevron We Trust
He doesn’t have the greatest of winning strike rates, but the thing he does have going for him is the pole draw. Had a suck run behind the speed last start and battled on nicely when second. He’ll either lead or box seat behind a good speed.

Whatever the scenario, he’ll take beating.

Value: Race Two Number 1 Sport Metal
On paper, looks a race in two, but I think this girl can get the suck run behind a speed battle and get a look via the sprint lane. Her recent form has been more than sound and should she be able to land leaders back, I think she is in with a big shout at a decent price.

Two meetings to look at on Thursday, with Redcliffe and Kilmore getting my focus. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race One Number 1 Ansons Boy
Kicking off the meeting with what looks a good thing to my eye. He is third up from a year long break and should be cherry ripe fitness-wise.

Good effort here last time out from off the speed, spotting those in front a decent start. He can hold the front and prove too good.

Next-best: Race Two Number 5 Fire Eyes
The gate does make things a bit tricky but he does look quite clearly the best horse in the race and I’ll bank on his ability overcoming the draw. Resumed at Albion Park when dragged back for cover and finding the line nicely.

Depth here is weaker and he’s got upside to come.

Value: Race Four Number 1 Wavedancer
Tricky race but happy to 1×3 speck this guy. Ran here last Wednesday when getting the suck run behind the speed and sticking on well when third, beaten under two metres.

From the pole, he either leads or box seats. Whatever the scenario, I think he’s a solid each way bet.

Kilmore

Best bet: Race Two Number 3 Sergios Rocket
She is a juvenile filly on debut but has trialled very well, has the Emma Stewart polish and gets in form Kate Gath steering so on a solid card, I’ll make this first starter the best.

That trial came at Maryborough and it was a strong piece of work when winning. Confident she can make a winning debut.

Next-best: Race Three Number 4 Monarch Stride
He should have too much class for this lot. At start two, he was far from disgraced in the NSW Trotting Derby.

Spelled and resumed here where he looked a good thing on paper and duly saluted. Has the gate speed to find the front and should that eventuate, it’ll be a pretty painless watch.

Value: Race Five Number 1 Kiedis
Kate Hargreaves is fast becoming one of the more astute trainers in Victoria and she has gelding second up.

Resumed at Swan Hill where he was an odds-on pop but didn’t fire a shot and finished tailed off last. He is clearly a better horse than that and from the pole, at a better price, he deserves another chance.
