Harness racing selections: Thursday, June 24

There are two meetings to look at on Thursday, with Kilmore and Redcliffe getting my focus.

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Kilmore

Best bet: Race 3, Number 5, Loose Cash
This is a tricky meeting but I am confident this guy is the best on the program. He has had two runs after a break of more than two years. He has attempted to lead throughout in both runs and has been run down by some nice types. The depth here isn’t as strong and with Chris Alford to steer, he’ll lead and take running down.

Next best: Race 8, Number 3, Spring In His Step
He has the gate speed to find the front and that will ensure he will have a head start over his main rival Captain Bellasario. He ran second in quite a strong race last time out after opting for a sit behind the speed. I suspect it will be an aggressive drive from the outset to lead and prove hard to get past.

Value: Race 9, Number 4, Abundance
This three-year-old trot race is an even one, so I am looking to play each way via this filly. She is getting better and better with race experience. She was never a threat at Geelong last time out, but I liked the way she finished her race. If she does everything right and is within range on the turn, she’s capable.

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race 1, Number 4, Ballerini
Dennis Picker looks to have a strong hand at this meeting and I’m confident the NSW-based trainer can kick things off on the right note in the opener. This horse was beaten a fair way fresh at Goulburn, but that race looked to have good depth to it. It was clearly stronger than here. This horse just has to show a slight hint of improvement and she’ll be too good.

Next best: Race 5, Number 2, Misty Creek
It is not easy for a juvenile taking on the older horses, but he is a smart juvenile that is heading towards better races this prep, so he can tick off this race before then. This horse was excellent in defeat last time out at Albion Park when third to Dangerzone. That is strong two-year-old form in Queensland, so he’ll do me here.

Value: Race 7, Number 1, Pago Pago
He’ll likely go around at a decent price and from the pole, he should get every chance. This horse led here last time out and tired late in a disappointing effort, but the form prior was sound. It will be interesting to see what the tactics will be, whether they hold the lead or opt for cover. Either way, he’ll run a positive race.

Harness racing selections: Wednesday, June 23

Two meetings to look at on Wednesday night, with my attention being at Bathurst and Redcliffe. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.

Bathurst

Best bet: Race 2, Number 7, Awholelotpfpretty

Has done a good job since joining Amanda Turnbull and despite a tricky draw, I think she’s the most progressive of this lot and can get the job done. Strong win at Cowra on Sunday when getting a suck run behind the speed and finishing best. If she gets luck from the gate, I think she’s clearly the one to beat.

Next best: Race 1, Number 2, Infinity Beach

Little while between wins but I think he can bounce back here. Ran at Cowra on Sunday and had little luck in the run on the tight track. Should have won with clear air, but it didn’t eventuate. Has gate speed, and drawn the front line, should be in front and proving hard to get past.

Value: Race 4, Number 1, Bill Shannon

Consistent type that is honest and each way, don’t think you can go wrong backing this guy. He hasn’t really had much luck with gates in recent runs but despite that, his last few runs have been full of merit. Now drawn the pole, if he can hold a forward spot, I think he only runs well at odds.

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race 5, Number 5, Themidnightrambler

Looks a race in two, but this a tough nut who can do work in the run and still be effective at the end. Has been quite impressive in winning his last three, admittedly from the front. Likely has to sit parked this time around, but confident he’s going well enough to do that and still win.

Next best: Race 2, Number 1, Machin Out

This guy does his best racing when on speed and from the pole, at Redcliffe, that should eventuate here. His form recently has been mixed, but he has been racing in races much stronger than this. Should have little trouble holding the lead from gate one and is the one to beat.

Value: Race 3, Number 7, Betting Baron

He’s flying this time in and at double figures, happy to back him each way. Put together three wins on the bounce back here a little while ago. The few runs since have been more than sound, including here last Wednesday. Has the trailing draw to get a suck run behind the speed and get every chance.
