Harness racing selections: Tuesday, September 21

There are two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Albion Park and Menangle getting my focus.

Albion Park

Best bet – Race 8, No. 7: Uncle Shank
He’s a very smart colt that bolted up here last Tuesday, and I’m confident he’ll repeat the dose despite the outside front line draw. He led from gate four last Tuesday, and once he found the front, it was a pretty painless watch. If he finds the front, which I suspect he will, he wins.

Next best bet – Race 6, No. 5: Kashed Up
He’s similar to Uncle Shank – a smart three-year-old that should prove too good. He looked in a bit of trouble early on last time out but found the box seat eventually. It’s just a matter of getting clear air – once he got it, he was too good. He needs luck from the draw, but if he gets it, he’ll be too good.

Value bet – Race 2, No. 4: Spiders Devil
It’ll be heart-in-mouth stuff given it’s a standing start, but if he gets away cleanly and finds the front, I think he’ll run a cheeky race. His recent form hasn’t been too bad, but I would suggest this is one of the easier races he has contested in some time, so I’m happy to speck at each-way odds.

Menangle

Best bet – Race 2, No. 8: Aldebaran Ursula
She’s a smart filly that I’m confident can win again. She finished a narrow second at Group l level fresh at Kilmore before returning here to a stand two weeks ago, and she was an impressive winner. She will likely concede a start from the gate, but she has the change-up speed to round them up and win.

Next best bet – Race 5, No. 4: Feels Lika Boss
This is a tricky race, but this guy comes up with a good draw and a significant driver upgrade, with Cam Hart taking over. He’s been plagued by bad gates in recent times, but that all changes here with gate three, and with the driver change, I think he can press forward, sit handy and prove hard to beat.

Value bet – Race 4, No. 2: Full Brother
Overall I don’t think this is a strong race, so I’m happy to speck the first starter for Paul Fitzpatrick. This colt has had had three trials to get ready for start one and each time has looked solid enough to suggest he can run well on debut. He comes up with a soft gate to use too.

Harness racing selections: Monday, September 20

Two meetings to look at on Monday, with my attention at Maryborough and Goulburn. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Maryborough

Best bet: Race 8, Number 9, Blitzern
Talented colt for the McDonagh camp that I’m confident can make it three on the bounce. He has done it the hard way outside the speed in those wins and each time he has found plenty under pressure and has been too good. Whatever the scenario here, he’s clearly the one to beat.

Next-best: Race 2, Number 1, Aldebaran Lovisa
She’s racing well and looks ideally placed to break the maiden tag. Just did a bit too much work from a wide gate to find the front last time out at Bendigo and battled on pretty well when fourth. Drawn the pole, she’ll have little trouble holding the front and proving hard to get past.

Value: Race 5, Number 8, Ferocious Son
Ten years of age, but maintains a healthy zest for racing. Drawn inside the second row, so will need luck to get clear, but to counter that, he’ll do no work on the pegs. Not sure he was suited at Wedderburn last Sunday so on the bigger track, want to give him another chance and is worth an each way ticket.

Goulburn

Best bet: Race 1, Number 5, Araignee Flair
The good thing on the program and an ideal multi booster. Goulburn can be a funny track for trotters where mistakes can be made quite easily, but if this mare does trot all the way, she’s miles too good for what looks an average bunch. Two back, won at Menangle and was a strong winner here last time. Should be winning.

Next-best: Race 5, Number 8, He’s Dusty
The draw is tricky, but he does have quite good gate speed and if the button is pushed, I think he can find the front, lead, and prove very hard to get past. Good form around him overall and he did look strong in a trial win here just over two weeks ago, so I think he’s ready to go.

Value: Race 6, Number 1, Arma Naughty
Ignatius is a proven Group 1 performer, so you’d be stunned if he got beat; but I think there is a place bet at odds in the shape of this mare, who has had no luck with gates in recent times, but that all changes here with a pole draw. She can use gate speed to hold out early, then sit behind Ignatius and cling on for second.
