Harness racing selections: Wednesday, April 14

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

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Bathurst

Best bet: Race 2, Number 2, Hammertime Harley
Jason Grimson rarely gets it wrong when he brings them to Bathurst and that should continue via this mare. The first run for the new stable came at Menangle when leading throughout and she was dominant. This race looks on the weaker side. She should find the front and prove far too good.

Next best: Race 4, Number 6, Obi One
She has been costly in her past couple but she can make amends with a win here. She was brave in defeat at Penrith last time. She got caught in a speed battle in front and that early burn told late. She should find the front here and provided she doesn’t cop too much pressure, she’s the one to beat.

Value: Race 1, Number 9, The Dancer
He will go around big odds so I’d suggest a small 1×3 play. He’ll need things to fall into place and potentially could get buried on the pegs, but he is racing well. He got stuck in a tricky spot at Dubbo last time out but managed to get clear air and find the line pretty well. He’ll do no work from the gate and could sneak a place at odds.

Shepparton

Best bet: Race 2, Number 2, Azellia’s Fame
A first starter as a best bet can be fraught with danger, but she looks a good prospect for Jess Tubbs with Greg Sugars to steer. She produced sharp change-up speed to win a recent race in Melton and looked the part. She has enough speed in the legs to find the front early and she’ll take a power of beating.

Next best: Race 5, Number 1, Celebrita
She didn’t beat a great deal last time out in Melton, but she was dominant and that might well be the confidence boost she needs to go on with it. She led throughout to win by a space and her mile rate was pretty solid for this class of horse. She holds a forward spot from the inside gate and only runs well.

Value: Race 8, Number 11, Sixty
He hasn’t won in over two years but this nine-year-old is racing well. He held a forward spot from the pole in Melton last time out and battled on well when third to Im No Outlaw. He has drawn outside the second row. He’ll need luck so you should get a decent price and each way, he’ll run a positive race, provided he gets a decent drag up.

Harness racing selections: Tuesday April 13th

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

Tabcorp Park Menangle
Best Bet: Race Two Number 1 Eye Can Fly
Short but sweet here. She just has panels on these re class. Impressive in winning a heat of the Gold Tiara before contesting the Final where she was far from disgraced in defeat behind Just Hope, who is a star. Has gate speed so should have little trouble holding up and I think it’ll be a painless watch.

Next Best: Race One Number 3 Captains Queen
Pretty keen on this girl in the opener. Has done little wrong in her short career to date, winning two of three. Her taste of defeat came last start in the Gold Tiara where she was beaten by a top class juvenile in Just Hope. I think the exposed form is in her corner quite clearly and seems a real professional.

Value: Race Three Number 5 Puma Road
Can make a little case for him at odds. Be forgiving of his down the track effort two weeks ago here when leading and copping pressure in front before tiring late. Has enough gate speed to cross them early, then potentially hand up. His best is good enough and you should get well into double figures.

Albion Park
Best Bet: Race Two Number 2 Paratrooper
This looks the weaker of the APG Heats but do feel Paratrooper is a good thing. Grant Dixon trains and comes here second up after resuming with a win at Redcliffe, where he led throughout and was dominant in the run to the line. Looks the leader and from there, he should take a power of beating.

Next Best: Race Four Number 7 Aunty Bella
The draw makes it tricky on paper, but that should ensure you’ll get a better price. I’m keen on this Chris Frisby runner. I thought she was excellent from the back at Bathurst last time behind a smart animal in Saint Julien, clocking fast late splits. If she’s within range 400m out, she has the change up speed to out these away.

Value: Race Three Number 1 Aye Aye Captain
On class, I’d say no, but he does possess good gate speed and is drawn the pole, so Shane Graham has a few options. Forget he went around at Redcliffe last time. Just had to do too much work from the gate and was a tired horse late. He either leads or box seats here, so think he only runs well at a decent price.
