Harness racing selections: Wednesday, February 24

Two meetings to look at on Wednesday night, with Bathurst and Redcliffe being the focus. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.

Bathurst

Best bet: Race Two, Number 3 Somethingaboutlexy
Somethingaboutlexy is short, but should be winning. She’s a talented filly that resumes for Bernie Hewitt, who drives as well. Did some nice work last prep, predominantly at Menangle in some good class races. Finds a thin race to resume and thought a recent Bathurst trial indicated she’s ready to go. Should find the front and prove too good.

Next best: Race Six, Number 5 My Ultimate Tommy
My Ultimate Tommy was with David Moran when he was a strong debut winner at Kilmore back in June last year. Now finds himself with Jarrod Alchin and might well be a decent lead that Cameron Hart makes the trek for the drive. Has looked impressive in trials at Menangle and looks to have a significant class edge.

Value: Race Eight, Number 1 London Legs
The Frisby horse looks the one to beat but might be a tad on the short side, so reckon this first starter might well be good value. Has trialled in readiness for start one and drawn the pole, if he can hold leaders back behind Uncle Miki, I think he can run quite a positive race at a decent price.

Redcliffe

Best Bet: Race One, Number 1 Adrenaline Rush
She looks a great bet in the opener. Ran here last Wednesday when pressing forward in search of the lead but had to sit parked for a fair chunk of the race. Eventually landed 1/1 cover and battled on really well. Has drawn the pole, and I suspect Pete McMullen will hold the front. She’ll take some running down.

Next best: Race Three, Number 1 Beejays Delight
This nine-year-old gelding can lead throughout. He ran a narrow second when looking to lead throughout two back, then drew the second line last time and the rub of the green didn’t go his way, albeit the effort was still more than sound. Should lead this field up and prove hard to get past.

Value: Race Nine, Number 8 Ashton River
This will depend on where he gets to in the run from a potentially sticky draw, but I’m convinced he is going well and strikes a winnable race. Not much went his way from the inside-second-row draw last Thursday but prior form suggested a win is nearby, so I’m keen to see how he goes here, especially if he can hold a forward spot.

Harness racing selections: Tuesday, February 23

Two meetings to look at this Tuesday, with racing at Tabcorp Park Menangle and Albion Park. Here are the best bets for the respective programs.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race One Number 8 Illbewatching

Pretty keen on this guy in the opener. Ran here last Tuesday and was good in defeat behind a very classy youngster in I Am Sparta, beaten 20m, but safely held the rest at bay.

All he needs is luck from the draw and he will be too good for this lot, who look quite average at very best.

Next best: Race Four Number 1 Jingles Bromac
Matty Elkins has him flying at present and he can make it three on end.

Has had to overcome the ODM in both wins, but he has been dominant each time. Now he’s back in the draw, he has gate one, so holds a forward and he only has to hold his current to just about take out another win.

Value: Race Seven Number 1 Coppice
He is worthy of an each-way ticket.

He does his best racing from when he leads and from the draw, he should have little trouble holding the lead.

Had a second line gate last start and the setup just wasn’t ideal for him. Gets a much better scenario this time around and can run a bold race from in front.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race One Number 5 Kyvalley Boomerang

Just has better form than these and should be winning.

This is the easiest race he has contested in some time, generally racing in 54-75 rating races. He is in a very moderate race here and is usually pretty good away from the stand, so should he find the front, he’ll be too good.

Next best: Race Three Number 5 Knockawarwon
Short, but should be winning.

Debuted here three weeks ago when showing good gate speed to lead and seemed to have his chance, but was still good in defeat in running a close-up second. The depth here isn’t strong and with that gate speed, he finds the front and will prove a tough commodity to get past.

Value: Race Six Number 1 Gigi Bob
Her winning claims will be known at the start. They have driven her positively her past couple, both at Newcastle.

She has been forced to sit in the breeze each time but has stuck on pretty well in defeat. Should do no work from the pole and worst-case scenario, leaders back or three pegs, she’ll be dangerous.
