Harness racing selections: Thursday, May 20

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

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race One Number 1 Misstrepo
Short but sweet to start the meeting. Former Victorian who debuted for the new camp last week at Albion Park.

Just did that little bit too much work early to lead, which left her gassed when she had to fend off the challenges out wide. Depth nowhere near as strong here – she should lead and should win.

Next best: Race Two Number 4 Elie Jay
Marburg form can be taken with a grain of salt, but despite this mare being a last start winner there, her form prior, including at this track, just reads too well for this bunch.

Sharp wins here four back and six back to go with her dominant display at Marburg last time. She’s clearly the one to beat.

Value: Race Four Number 7 Joy To All
I am hoping Chili Rocks can hold the lead and with that, this filly can land box seat and get every chance to blouse via the sprint lane.

She wasn’t too bad in defeat here last time out, which was last Friday, so interesting to see where she gets to in the run. Hoping leaders back, three back at worst, and 1×3 at a price, she’s worth a speck.

Ballarat

Best bet: Race Three Number 3 Beach Villa
Good field here with good depth, but this guy looks a potential star.

Debuted in the Sapling at Melton when showing brilliant toe from the mobile to lead the field up, and from there, it was just arrogance from the outset, leading throughout and he was dominant. Harder here, but he looks really good.

Next Best: Race Four Number 4 Petillante
This looks the strongest of the two two-year-old Filly Heats for the meeting.

Sports opinion delivered daily 

   

This girl was an impressive debut winner at Melton. Had the 1/1 sit in the run before easing wider and although she took a while to get going, once she did, she let down like a really good filly and won well.

She’s the bet in a competitive race.

Value: Race One Number 1 Lochinvar Ruler
Formerly with Darren Binskin, this guy finds himself with David Moran and we know this stable are elite when it comes these Series formats.

Overall, this isn’t a strong heat and with the youngster now with Moran, banking on him getting improvement out of this horse and 1×3 at odds, happy to play.

Harness racing selections: Wednesday, May 19

There are two meetings to look at on Wednesday night, with my focus being on Redcliffe and Bathurst.

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Redcliffe

Best bet: Race 3, Number 2, Divinia Bellezza
These former WA pacers that come to the east are just ATMs. This mare should be no exception. She brings with her some very strong metro form from Gloucester Park, with subsequent group form around her. She looked very sharp in a recent Albion Park trial win and just has to handle Redcliffe to win.

Next best: Race 4, Number 5, Guido Da Siena
Ricky Thurlow trains the mare above and he also trains this gelding, a former NSW pacer having Start 2 for the camp. There was a lot of merit in his first-up effort at Albion Park. He just had to get dragged back from the wide gate, but I liked the way he finished off. The depth here is nowhere near as strong, so he’ll do me.

Value: Race 5, Number 2, High On Montana
He will need luck in the run because he doesn’t have gate speed and will be crossed. But he should do no work in the run and he finds such a thin race. His recent efforts at Albion Park from tricky gates have been sound. This horse has drawn the pole this time around. He should get every chance.

Bathurst

Best bet: Race 1, Number 2, Old Luke
This former Kiwi has done little wrong since coming down under and he looks a great way to start the meeting. He was enormous in defeat a few weeks ago here when doing plenty of work to sit parked outside the speed. This horse did a super job to stick on like he did behind a smart one in Uncle Miki. This horse should lead and prove too good.

Next best: Race 4, Number 1, The Weekend
Josh Gallagher is a high-class driver, but with due respect, Luke McCarthy jumping on is a significant upgrade. He doesn’t come to Bathurst for nothing and teams up with family given Matthew McCarthy trains. He has raced quite well without winning recently, but he has got the inside gate this time, should lead and prove really hard to get past.

Value: Race 5, Number 9, Gabbys Sportstar
You can’t go wrong with a 1×3. This horse is a very consistent five-year-old that is rarely far away from the action and has such a perfect trailing draw, following out pole marker, fast beginner and likely favourite Keayang Kreuzer. This horse hasn’t really had luck with gates recently, but this is the ideal sit for him and 1×3 is a great bet.
