Harness racing selections: Wednesday, 12 May

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

Down below are my best bets for the respective programs.

Redcliffe

Best bet – Race 4, No. 1: Recipe For Dreaming
His recent form doesn’t scream out as a coming good thing, but the two big ticks of Gate 1 and getting back to Redcliffe sways me towards his corner. He hasn’t been too bad lately at Albion Park, but he’s drawn the pole here, so should have little trouble holding the front and proving mighty hard to get past.

Next best bet – Race 10, No. 3: Slide To Unlock
I was on her back last Thursday here when a beaten odds-on pop, but like her debut, she was raw and new to the caper. I am hoping that for start three she’ll know what it’s all about, and with a front-line draw, it’ll be interesting to see if the jockey will be aggressive. I think she’s the one to beat.

Value bet – Race 9, No. 1: Somewhereinheaven
This is a bludger of a race, with a host winning claims, so I’m going to have a throw at the stumps in the shape of this veteran mare. She ran here last Wednesday night when getting a suck run from the pole and battled on pretty well to run fourth, beaten by just over four metres. She lands in a good spot once again, and I think she can run another positive race.

Bathurst

Best bet – Race 1, No. 5: Uncle Miki
He’s a two-year-old taking on the older horses, but he looks a very capable youngster. The change-up speed he produced when winning here last week was simply outstanding, and it was the win of a horse destined for better things. This looks like another stepping stone, and I’m confident it’ll be a successful one.

Next best bet – Race 2, No. 2: Chasing The Wind
He can be costly for punters, but I think his turn will come up here. He had the box-seat sit when racing here last week, and I thought he was entitled to put the race to bed given the run he had, but on the line he was held. The depth here isn’t as strong, and with the chance to get the box seat again I’m confident he can go one better.

Value bet – Race 4, No. 1: Im Major Harry
I think he can sneak a place at a decent price. He was dragged back from a wide gate when racing here last week, and I didn’t mind his finale when a solid fifth. He’s drawn the pole and could land leaders back, likely three back pegs. He’ll do no work in the run, and at a big price he’ll run a cheeky race.

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

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race 3 Number 9 Lucky Charm
Forgive the last start and bet up with confidence. She was putting together a really strong sequence of runs before the effort last time out where she galloped halfway home and that put pay to her winning claims. Off the prior form, she just has too much on these, so I’m confident she wins.

Next-best: Race 8 Number 4 Soho Almasi
She has too much class for this lot I’d suggest. She was far from disgraced two back in the Gold Bracelet at Bathurst behind a star in Anntonia, and then raced here in the Golden Easter Egg. Just had too much to do from where she was in the run and the effort was full of merit. She has the gate speed to lead.

Value: Race 10 Number 5 Lani Kai Beach
He mixes his form, but his best would see him run a cheeky race here at a big price. He was really good here two back over the mile. Then he went to the 2300m and just got a mile back from the wide gate. I dare say Jimmy Douglass will find the pegs, three/four back, do no work and look to get luck in the straight. If he does, he’s a sneaky chance.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 4 Number 1 Dance In The Sun
A talented filly who has class and should be too brilliant for this lot. Beaten odds on pop-fresh last week, but she resumed without a trial and just looked in need of the run. She will take seriously good improvement from that and with gate speed, she should lead and prove far too good.

Next-best: Race 6 Number 1 Moonan Mia
This mare does tend to race best when getting a suck run behind the speed with cover and using her late finishing burst to blouse them so the gate is perfect. She has the speed to hold up early, then potentially opt for cover behind a key market rival and from there she should receive every chance.

Value: Race 3 Number 8 Major Tralee
He traditionally saves his best for Redcliffe, but he has such a good trailing draw to use here and if he can land box seat, he’ll only run well at a decent price. He ran last time out in one of those silly 947m races. Forget that run. His prior form was sound and should he hold the back of likely leader Raani, he’s in with a shout.
