Harness racing selections: Tuesday, May 18

Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with my focus at Albion Park and Tabcorp Park Menangle. Down below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 7, Number 2, Held To Ransom
Team Morris rarely get it wrong when they send a team to Brisbane, so pretty keen on this mare to get into the winners list. Recent efforts at Menangle have been quite strong and she comes through some really solid form races. Drawn well here, expect Robbie Morris to find the front, control and I think she’ll be too good.

Next best: Race 2, Number 9, Kraze
He has done a super job since coming to Queensland and I think he can continue his winning ways. Kept on the fresh side, having not raced since April 16 when winning here in impressive fashion. 20-metre handicap, but is usually clean from the stand and ability wise, he has a bit on these.

Value: Race 8, Number 1, Just Rokin
I think he’s worth a speck each way. Two runs back from a spell, there have been clear excuses each time he has stepped out. Sat parked fresh and felt the pinch late. Then last start, he bled from one nostril, so just forget he went around. He has a good barrier to use here and his best is more than good enough.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race 1, Number 11, Tailored Elegance
Just has to step away cleanly from the standing start and this mare will just have far too much class for this lot. Last run for Brent Lilley came in a Group III here when getting the suck run behind the leader and battling on pretty well to run second. Drops massively in grade and depth, she’s clearly the one to beat.

Next best: Race 6, Number 8, Jay Bracken
Has good form around him from last prep to resume a winner here. Hasn’t raced since October 27 when down the track in a solid two-year-old race here. His trials leading in have been solid enough to suggest he’s ready to go for a first up win. Just depends where he gets to in the run from the draw but happy to be with him.

Value: Race 8, Number 2 Gentle Giant
Just a peanut each way on this guy, who will likely go around at triple figures. Hammertime Harley should hold the lead from the pole, so expecting this guy to land in the box seat behind him. His recent efforts haven’t been too bad and he was luckless here three back, so I think he’s going well enough to fill a place at a big price.

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.
