Harness racing selections: Saturday, May 15

There are two meetings to look at on Saturday night, headlined by a massive Group 1 meeting at Albion Park.

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 3, Number 2, Dynamic Dan
It is a bit of a shame he didn’t make the final given he ran second in the two-year-old final last year, but he just looks so well placed here to take out the consolation. Forgive the last-start effort. He was first up and did a power of work to eventually get on speed. That early burn just told late. He should lead here from the good draw and it’ll take a career-best from the others to beat him.

Next best: Race 5, Number 6, Manila Playboy
This horse is two from two this time in and he can make it three from three in the Group 1. This horse is a very talented animal for Shane Fraser that has taken on older horses in both runs back from a break and he has spanked them each time he has stepped out. He’ll press forward from the wide gate, likely bully his way to the front, and be too strong.

Value: Race 4, Number 8, Bets On Millie
Cat King Cole will go around at Winx odds and should win like her. So how to bet in the race? The place bet for Bets On Millie is the way to go. This horse is yet to win in five career outings but she comes up with the coveted draw that gets her right behind the hot pot, who should lead, and I am hoping this girl can hold her back. Should that eventuate, she’s a great place bet in what will be a peg-dominated affair.

Melton

Best bet: Race 1, Number 2, La Puddie
Iconic Major will go around as the favourite given he was a clear black-booker last start, but La Puddie is a great bet on the card. Iconic Major doesn’t possess brilliant gate speed whereas La Puddie does and he is very effective when he finds the front, which is what should eventuate here. And with little to no pressure from what I can see on the map, I’m really keen on him.

Next best: Race 2, Number 3, Van Mara
He needs things to fall into place to be effective and those things look like they will occur here. He is a fast beginner who should find the pegs first early. Ideally, he hands up to Arden Voyager, who pulls hard. I am hoping Van Mara opts for cover behind him and can blouse via the sprint lane.

Value: Race 5, Number 8, Maestro Bellini
This is a tricky race so I am searching for value and have come up with a stablemate of Van Mara. He will need luck given he draws inside the second row, but if the horse in front – Explicit Castle – can hold the lead, this guy should be able to land leaders back and from there, he comes right into the mix as a key winning chance.

Sydney and Brisbane racing selections: Rosehill and Doomben tips for Saturday, May 15

Like most forays to the Central Coast, last week’s punt at Gosford returned nothing and left me licking my wounds.

I am back to the safety of Rosehill this week. It is a good meeting with some winter horses taking on promising types that are Brisbane-bound.

I count myself in the second category. I’ll be at Doomben for the 10,000, so I’ve spread my wings and will include a few tips from the big card they have up north.

Dixie’s 2021 tally
Outlay: 190 units
Return: 332.8 units
Stats are based on one unit being equal to a $1 win bet, New South Wales dividends. See the comments for any changes based on scratchings or track condition.

Sydney racing selections

Race 1 – 7 Banju (one unit)
I am taking a quick dip in the highway this week. Banju ran time winning at Bathurst and drops seven and a half kilos into this, which are good signs. Saintly Surprise is the one from the highway I’m interested in at odds. I backed Charlton Park last time and he just got done. This horse has got to go better here.

Race 2 – 9 Tidal Impact (one unit)
It’s not often I find myself checking Coonamble replays. I am hoping it’s worth it with Tidal Impact, who won his only start out west by ten lengths. He’s since bolted in at the trials closer to home and is worth a punt.

Race 3 – 8 Achiever (two units)
Achiever looks the one to beat in the three-year-old distance race. He was good at odds in the Packer Plate and that looks like a nice guide into this. I had Blaze A Trail next best and Casino Mondial the blowout.

Race 4 – 16 Nags to Riches (one unit)
I rated Nags about equal to Newsreader but with the give in the surface I’m leaning to the one down the bottom of the weights. She won well at Gosford and the inside draw is great.

Race 5 – 2 Exoboom (one unit)
I know from the texts I received that a few of you took my lead and got on Exoboom last time. He gobbled them up like a good horse there and might have something on this lot as well. Prime Star is the obvious danger.

Race 6 – 10 True Detective (one unit)
What can beat Lost And Running? He’s certainly been impressive, but striking a soft track with a wide gate are two question marks when you’re $1.40. True Detective likes this distance range and is proven at Rosehill. He’s a monster price. Nothing crazy but I’ll see what coins are in my pocket.

Race 7 – 13 Fituese (three units)
I am very keen on Fituese in the sprint. She flies fresh and 1100 metres at Rosehill is perfect. Adelong will run along and is just a winner. Albumin loves the track and trip, then Fiesta and Zaniah.

Race 8 – 4 Salina Dreaming (two units)
Three from three on soft tracks is a good sign for top-rater Salina Dreaming. Her fresh win puts her front and centre here. Ocean Emperor was a bit disappointing with my money last time. He rates well at his best. This race marks the long-awaited return of 2020 breadwinner De Grawin. I’m going to risk her first up with the weight tug again, but I’m wary.

Race 9 – 14 Bentley Magic (one unit)
It is a massive field in the last. They’ll be coming from everyone. I’ll be cheering for the green silks of Bentley Magic at any old price. The 1400 metres is his go and the weight relief is a tick. At 50/1, it’s worth a crack.

Brisbane racing selections

Race 2 – 3 Fabric (one unit)
Fabric gets a few favours with scratchings and is the one I want to be on.

Race 4 – 12 Seat of Power (one unit)
Seat of Power bolted in two starts back. He’ll lead them up and should run the trip.

Race 7 – 1 Trekking (one unit)
I am risking Eduardo at 1200 metres. I’ve landed with Trekking. He’s the distance specialist who was just off track-record pace two starts back in the Manikato. This is a quality race.

Race 9 – 14 Westlink (one unit)
We’re getting any old price on the 9/14 Sydney Brisbane double. I have Westlink on top. He was very good in tougher company last week. The back-up is a tick, but the give in the track not so much. But at 20/1 or more, I’m with him.

Good luck all. It’s a big one. Please be in touch across the day with your tips and thoughts.
