Harness racing selections: Wednesday, April 28

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

These are my best bets for the respective programs.

Bathurst

Best bet – Race 2, No. 8: Carlo Gambino
A former Kiwi who should take a power of beating here fresh for the Turnbull camp. He did a good job in his first Australian prep in Victoria, but his last run saw him break in the score-up, hence he is out of draw for this race. He trialled up well enough, and provided he does everything right, he should find the front and take running down.

Next-best bet – Race 3, No. 6: Sioux Rainbow
She looks a great chance in a winnable race. Paul Fitzpatrick rarely makes the trip to Bathurst, but when he does, he rarely leaves empty-handed. This filly ran at Penrith last time out and was good in defeat after getting the 1-1 sit. The depth here is nowhere near as strong, and I think she has a touch of quality to get her home.

Value bet – Race 5, No. 5: Kash Us Back
On paper he isn’t going well enough to win, but if you dive in deeper, he isn’t going too badly. He just pulled too hard fresh here, then at Menangle he didn’t get the clearest of paths and was good in defeat. He has a lovely trailing draw to use here, and if he gets a good tempo in front, he’ll be hard to hold out.

Redcliffe

Best bet – Race 4, No. 1: Hot Embers
It should be a lovely race for this gelding. His recent efforts at the track have been more than sound, albeit he hasn’t had the plus of a good barrier, which he gets here, so I think he’ll use his gate speed to lead this field up. He’s bursting to win another race, and this looks well within reach for this son of Courage Under Fire.

Next-best bet – Race 1, No. 2: Risky Buziness
I generally hate these short-course races, but this gelding does look hard to beat. He has enough gate speed to lead this field up, and the 947-metre start should be an advantage. He races best when allowed to lead, and given the set-up on paper, he gets a great chance to get back into the winners list.

Value bet – Race 6, No. 7: Tactfilly Magic
She will need things to fall into place for her, but at big odds I’m happy to speck 1×3. Her recent efforts have been somewhat plain, but she should get a lovely run on the pegs, whether it be leaders back or three back. Whatever position she is, she’ll be doing no work and is a sneaky chance at a big price.

Harness racing selections: Tuesday April 27th

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

Tabcorp Park Menangle
Best Bet: Race Two Number 5 Tough Love

Likely to go around short odds given he has strong race day form, but provided he does everything right, he has panels on these. T

wo career outings have come in Victoria in a couple of strong races, that has seen him place each run. The rest of the field, I’d say they aren’t much good, so he just has to run up to his race day form to be winning.

Next Best: Race Six Number 3 Shadow Minister
Former Kiwi who I am confident can make it 2/2 in Australia. The debut down under came over the 2550m at Newcastle, which isn’t an easy assignment first up, but he led throughout and was dominant.

Back to the mile I find interesting but he does have the McCarthy polish and got more upside.

Value: Race Eight Number 2 Gentle Giant
This is a place bet because Stun Gun should lead and win. I am hoping Tiarn Sutton can hold the back of the hot pot, a spot that saw this Kiwi bred run a game fourth here two back.

Forget last start where he galloped out and that sealed his fate. If he can hold leaders back, he’s a good chance to run a place.

Albion Park
Best Bet: Race Three Number 11 Manila Playboy

Smart three year old that should win again. Overcame a second row draw to spank them when resuming here last Tuesday. Dare say he has eyes on the upcoming Winter Carnival so I’ll be keen to see how he goes here, whether he can keep his winning ways, and I’m confident he can.

Next Best: Race Four Number 1 Talent To Spare
She’s well named against this bunch because she should be winning with plenty left in the tank. Quality filly that should make it three on the bounce. Freshened up with around six weeks between runs. Tick over trial saw her beat Manila Playboy, which clearly is a good pointer for a race like this.

Value: Race Five Number 8 Don Heston
Bit of a 1×3 speck at odds. Banking on Vanish Hanover holding the inside position and the lead. From there, I think Don Heston can get leaders back and be a threat at a massive price.

Been plagued by ordinary draws in three runs back from a spell, but with a good trailing draw here, he’ll run a much improved race.
