Harness racing selections: Thursday, October 14

Two meetings to look at on Thursday, with Charlton and Penrith getting my focus. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Charlton

Best bet: Race 2, Number 8, Parisian Artiste
Just has to do everything right and he’ll be too good. Made a bad error at Geelong last time and did a remarkable job to get as close as he did when third after being tailed off early. Just needs to produce his best manners and I think he’ll be winning.

Next-best: Race 1, Number 8, Coco Beach
This mare will need luck from the second row draw, but there should be quite a genuine tempo in front so she will get her chance to finish over the top, provided she gets away from the inside. Had to do work last time out at Mildura and stuck on well when fourth. I think she’ll take a power of beating here.

Value: Race 5, Number 1, Lexus On The Beach
Drawn the pole, he should get a suck run from the draw and each way, he’s worth a speck. Pulled hard on the pegs last start at Cranbourne and battled on well when third. I think he’ll land leaders back here and from there, get every chance and I think is going well enough to run a cheeky race.

Penrith

Best bet: Race 2, Number 1, Major Statement
He finds a perfect race to bounce back into winning form. Has been close up in recent times without winning, but hasn’t been helped by tricky gates. He comes up with the pole this time around, so should be holding the lead comfortably and proving quite hard to run down.

Next Best: Race 5, Number 9, My Ultimate Skeeta
A juvenile that takes on the older horses, but he has class and should be too good for this lot. Ran a super race last Tuesday at Menangle behind one of the better juveniles in NSW, Smaltese. This is a massive drop in depth and despite the second row draw, he should be winning.

Value: Race 1, Number 7, Miss Sonic Boom
I think this filly is definitely worth something on each way. She’ll more than likely land three pegs so will need luck, but I suspect this will be a peg dominated affair and usually, those nearer the inside that are back on the pegs can get clear. That is what I am hoping with this filly, who is a definite chance.

Harness racing selections: Wednesday, October 13

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

Bathurst
Best Bet: Race 2, Number 10, Winona Writer

The second row draw should prove no drama for this unbeaten filly, who is 4/4 to start her career. Second row draw two back and gave them a belting and did something similar last time. The second row draw is a tricky one, but I think she has the brilliance to overcome it again.

Next Best: Race 4, Number 2, Smooth Overarm
Amanda Turnbull has been hot and cold with these former Kiwis in recent weeks at Bathurst, but this gelding does look to have settled into life down under nicely. Former New Zealander that built up a solid record in the land of the long white cloud. Two trials to get ready and all things being equal, he should be too good.

Value: Race 9, Number 1, Davids Hope
I think he’s worth a small 1×3 speck at odds. Yet to win in 50 career outings but has the pole to get a cheap run on the fence. He got that last Wednesday here and battled on well when second. He’ll get a similar run this time around and in a pretty thin race, he can snare a place.

Redcliffe
Best Bet: Race 3, Number 1, Bolta

In several runs in Queensland, he has had no luck with barriers. That all changes here, where he has the pole draw, so with that in mind, he’s the best on the card. Wide gates, second row draws etc haven’t helped his cause in recent times but with a good gate to use, I think he’s clearly the one to beat.

Next Best: Race 2, Number 1, Gottahaveahobbie
I’m really keen on his chances. If you were on his back last Thursday, apologies for bringing up the nightmare. He was bolting but unfortunately for his fans, clear air just wasn’t an option for him and it was ugly viewing. Drawn the front row, he has the gate speed to lead and prove hard to run down.

Value: Race 5, Number 7, Jukebox Jet
This four-year-old is first up but I think he’s in with a shout here if he can hold leaders back. Ended last prep on a high with a win at this track, and I do love horses that go out for a spell with high confidence levels. Soft trial to get ready, if he can hold leaders back, he’s in with a shout at a price.
