Harness racing selections: Friday, May 7

There are two meetings to look at on Friday, with my focus being on Mildura and Bendigo.

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Mildura

Best bet: Race 2, Number 4, Starvin Marvin
The barrier draw just looks perfect for him to bounce back into the winners list. This horse dragged back from the wide gate at Geelong last time out and just couldn’t get involved at all. Racing at Mildura is his level and with a lack of real depth drawn inside, he will find the front and will prove hard to run down.

Next best: Race 6, Number 3, Nationaldraft
Boris Devcic has him flying at the moment and he can make it three on end. This horse was a strong winner at this track and distance last time out when landing in a plum spot after showing good gate speed and from there, he was always in control and was dominant. It is harder here, but he has the barrier draw advantage.

Value: Race 7, Number 8, Fortitudo
This can be a peg-dominated affair. One leads and the seven should box seat. I am hoping this gelding can get the spot three pegs and get that cheap run in what should be a race controlled quite comfortably by the leader. If he lands the three-back spot, he can sneak a place.

Bendigo

Best bet: Race 2, Number 3, Bacardi Bindi
This mare looks extremely hard to beat over the sprint trip. This horse is a SA raider who shows good gate speed and with Greg Sugars engaged, she should find the front. When she has done previous Victorian raids, she has run quite well, and with the gate speed, that will be such an advantage over the sprint trip.

Next best: Race 5, Number 8, Miss Blue Glory
It is a a shocking draw for her, but any hint of normal luck and class gets her home. She has been racing at metro level at Melton in recent times and was a strong winner there last time after doing work in the run to sit on speed. She will need luck, but if she gets it, she’ll be too good.

Value: Race 6, Number 2, Bring The Flave
This is a tricky race so I am going for a bit of value in the shape of this mare for David Miles. This horse had the suck run on the pegs last time out at Geelong and zoomed home late to run second. This horse has drawn gate two. She’ll look to find the pegs and get another economical sit. If that eventuates, she’ll take beating at odds.

Harness racing selections: Thursday, May 6

Two meetings to look at on Thursday, with my focus being at Penrith and Redcliffe.

Penrith

Best bet: Race 2, Number 1, Enemy Lines
This seven-year-old is unbeaten since arriving from Western Australia and he can win again. Ran two weeks ago here where he was a short-priced elect. Found the front comfortably and from there, it was a painless watch. Drawn the pole, should lead once again and prove hard to run down once again.

Next best: Race 6, Number 1, Shes All Star
Pretty keen on this mare. She was enormous in defeat last week, doing a power of work from the wide gate to land on speed and that early burn just told late, but she fought on quite well. Drawn the pole, she has the gate speed to hold the front and with an in form Chris Geary to steer, she’s the one to beat.

Value: Race 3 Number 1, Hot Wire
I doubt she wins, but she’s a good place bet at a price. Thought she was good in defeat last time out after being quite plain the start prior. Drawn the pole, she can land leaders back and from there, should receive every chance. She’s worth a speck as a place bet.

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race 1, Number 5, Chamonix
Short but sweet. Talented three-year-old that has the Grant Dixon polish and potentially could be eyeing off some Winter Carnival riches. Last two starts, both wins, have come at Albion Park, and he has been dominant in getting the job done. Might have to work a bit in the run, but he has these covered re: class.

Next best: Race 2, Number 9, Slide To Unlock
Grant Dixon can make it an early double via this three-year-old filly. Debuted here last week where she did work from the gate to find a nice spot near the speed and battled on quite strongly. Has a good trailing draw to use this time around and with the run under the belt, she’ll take beating.

Value: Race 4, Number 1, Kid Calvert
I’m keen on this guy running well, hopefully at each way odds. Apologies if you were on him last week. He looked to be in a perfect spot behind the leader until he ended up getting dragged back by a tiring leader and it was just a nightmare. If he gets the rub of the green, he’ll only run well.
