Harness racing selections: Saturday, June 5

Two meetings to look at on Saturday night, with my attention being at Tabcorp Park Menangle and Tabcorp Park Melton. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race Six Number 9 Ignatius
There was a question mark as to how well he was going at one stage, but his recent form suggests he is getting back towards his 3-year-old form, where he was one of the best in Australia.

Has won three of his past four and was dominant three weeks ago when winning a Group 3 here. Needs luck from the wide gate, but class gets him home.

Next-best: Race Eight Number 5 Let’s Go To Brazil
Pretty keen on this guy in the get out. Set a decent task last time out here and he kept finding the line in a really good effort. Drops a bit in grade and depth, Luke McCarthy to steer, has the gate speed to find the lead and from the front, so he’ll take a power of beating.

Value: Race Seven Number 7 Empire Bay
He is in a purple patch at the moment and each way is a bet here at double figures.

An impressive winner here before making up good ground from the back two weeks ago. Has a tricky draw to overcome but if he gets luck in the running, he can figure in the finish.

Tabcorp Park Melton

Best bet: Race Four Number 1 Tango Tara
It’s nearly a case of any price. It all depends on gate speed and if he can hold up from the pole. If he does, it’s race over.

Former New Zealand pacer that has A1 form around him across the ditch, form which will see him spank these if he runs up anything near it. The first 100 metres to 200 metres is crucial but on class, he just bolts up.

Next-best: Race Five Number 3 Always Fast
Emma Stewart-trained five-year-old that has class and really came of age when last in work.

Hopefully, that can eventuate here despite being first up, and perhaps ridden against his pattern from last time in. He was so effective last prep when driven cold and launching late.

But the way this race sets up, he’ll lead and it’ll take a good one to run him down.

Value: Race Eight Number 1 Majestic Courtney
He lacks the class of some of these, but one thing he does have in his corner is gate speed, so will be fascinating to see how he goes.

This is the first full prep he’s had with Andy Gath and we know this stable is genius at improving a tried horse. He’ll hold up early, then potentially opt for cover. His best can see him prove to be a knockout chance.

Harness racing selections: Friday, June 4

Two meetings to look at on Friday, with my attention being at Mildura and Albion Park. The best bets for the respective programs are down below.

Mildura

Best bet: Race 6 Number 5 Vanity Bay
I’m pretty confident that this six-year-old can get the job done. He was one of the more impressive winners at this track during Cup Week. He then went to Globe Derby where he looked a good thing on paper but things didn’t fall into place and he tired, dropping out. He’s better than that, so give him another chance.

Next-best: Race 1 Number 1 Whereyagoinbabe
Looks a lovely race for this mare, who is having her first run for the Hargreaves camp after formerly being in NSW. She did her racing in the Hunter, mainly at Newcastle, which is solid enough form for this kind of race at Mildura. She has gate speed and she’ll take beating.

Value: Race 7 Number 1 Coco Beach
This mare can run a cheeky race at a price. Just did too much work on speed last time out here and rightfully dropped out, but she was far from disgraced. Drawn the pole, Wayne Hill has plenty of options, but ideally keeps the lead, opts for cover from Mondooley Mach and then get the box seat run.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 6 Number 7 Lady Avana
The draw is horrible, but she just has too much class. The quality filly makes her Australian debut for Grant Dixon after formerly racing in NZ, where the form around her does read so well. The trial was very good to the eye. Even luck and she’ll prove too good.

Next-best: Race 7 Number 4 The Raconteur
The Morris team have this three-year-old and second up in Queensland, I’m confident he gets the job done. First up run came last week when parked outside the speed. Despite that, he loomed to win. Condition just gave out and felt the pinch late. He should find the front this time and take a stack of beating.

Value: Race 1 Number 8 Key Largo
He’s in with a shout at a big price should he be able to land the spot behind the leader. That will depend on what Brooklyn’s Best does at the start, but on her NSW form, she leads and hopefully Key Largo sits behind. Forget he went around fresh, he just did far too much work. Knockout chance.
