Harness racing selections: Wednesday, 16 June

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

Bathurst

Best bet – Race 2, No. 2: Single Shot
I’m pretty keen on this three-year-old to bounce back. Be forgiving of his run here last Wednesday. He just had far too much to do from where he was in the run. He gets a significant driver upgrade with Amanda Turnbull taking the steer. I think this gelding will lead and prove hard to run down.

Next best bet – Race 7, No. 3: The Rainbow Beach
His class should see him win here. He ran on Saturday night in the Tatlow at Menangle, and despite being a $101 chance, I thought he was far from disgraced in defeat. He has the gate speed to find the front and should he lead and get control, then it’ll be race over. He’ll prove too good.

Value bet – Race 4, No. 1: Pat McGarry
I think he’s worth an each-way ticket. He hasn’t raced since 5 May, when finishing off strongly from off the speed at Bathurst. His recent runs haven’t seen him draw well, but that all changes here. If he can hold a forward spot, I think he’ll take a beating at hopefully a decent price.

Redcliffe

Best bet – Race 4, No. 1: Which Hunt
Getting back to Redcliffe and a step back a bit in depth should see a return to the winners list for Which Hunt. Her last few runs at Albion Park have been in much stronger races than this, and for the most part she has been far from disgraced. I think she will hold the lead from the pole and from there can dominate proceedings.

Next best bet – Race 1, No. 1: Fire And Ice
This will be a very winnable race if he produces anything near his best. It’s been a little while since he has done that, but he does have Barrier 1, and with good gate speed he should hold the lead, which is certainly no disadvantage at Redcliffe. I’m banking on him getting a good set-up in front and proving hard to get past.

Value bet – Race 3, No. 1: Heavens Hint
Something very small each way. She was too bad to be true when resuming here, tiring late and finishing tailed off, with clearly something amiss. She was ordered to trial, and the trial wasn’t too bad, with her running fourth. She has a good trailing draw to use and at big odds, so she could sneak a place.

Harness racing selections: Tuesday, June 15

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

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Menangle

Best bet: Race 4, Number 9, Sobomba
His best will see him take this out. Forgive his last-start effort. He was trucking into the race as a key winning threat but made a mistake and lost all chance. He has since trialled at Penrith and his piece of work there was sound. If he brings his best manners, he wins.

Next best: Race 2, Number 7, Itzfergietime
This looks like a race in two between this girl and Major Creation. Itzfergietime has the good grounding with four career outings and she has shown already that she can do work in the run and still be effective late. Does she lead and cross Major Creation? Perhaps, but likely has to do work in the run. Even allowing for that, she’ll take beating.

Value: Race 6, Number 3, Our Action Man
This is a small each-way ticket at odds. Rickie Alchin trains this three-year-old, who ran in some decent races when last in work and for the most part was far from disgraced. Trials leading in have been solid and with gate speed, this horse can press forward before getting cover, doing no work and being a sneaky chance at a price.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 2, Number 2, Zacharooni
Rickie Alchin rarely gets it wrong when he brings them to Queensland so I am confident that this colt can return a winner. This horse debuted at Penrith back in February. He showed gate speed early but broke and lost all hope. This horse spelled and trialled very well to get ready and should have the speed to lead and prove hard to get past.

Next best: Race 4, Number 2, Uncle Shank
This horse has a bit of class and quality about him and I am confident he can make a winning return in what looks like a race lacking serious overall depth. He did a really sharp job as a juvenile when last in work. I am keen to see how he goes as a three-year-old. He has trialled up nicely in readiness.

Value: Race 6, Number 1, Glenledi Commander
This is a tricky race so I am happy to have a throw at the stumps via this four-year-old. He hasn’t exactly set the world on fire in his career to date but to be fair, that can be said about most of these. He gets a good gate to use, potentially land leaders back and he will be dangerous at a decent price.
