Sydney and Brisbane racing selections: Rosehill and Doomben tips for Saturday, May 15

Like most forays to the Central Coast, last week’s punt at Gosford returned nothing and left me licking my wounds.

I am back to the safety of Rosehill this week. It is a good meeting with some winter horses taking on promising types that are Brisbane-bound.

I count myself in the second category. I’ll be at Doomben for the 10,000, so I’ve spread my wings and will include a few tips from the big card they have up north.

Dixie’s 2021 tally
Outlay: 190 units
Return: 332.8 units
Stats are based on one unit being equal to a $1 win bet, New South Wales dividends. See the comments for any changes based on scratchings or track condition.

Sydney racing selections

Race 1 – 7 Banju (one unit)
I am taking a quick dip in the highway this week. Banju ran time winning at Bathurst and drops seven and a half kilos into this, which are good signs. Saintly Surprise is the one from the highway I’m interested in at odds. I backed Charlton Park last time and he just got done. This horse has got to go better here.

Race 2 – 9 Tidal Impact (one unit)
It’s not often I find myself checking Coonamble replays. I am hoping it’s worth it with Tidal Impact, who won his only start out west by ten lengths. He’s since bolted in at the trials closer to home and is worth a punt.

Race 3 – 8 Achiever (two units)
Achiever looks the one to beat in the three-year-old distance race. He was good at odds in the Packer Plate and that looks like a nice guide into this. I had Blaze A Trail next best and Casino Mondial the blowout.

Race 4 – 16 Nags to Riches (one unit)
I rated Nags about equal to Newsreader but with the give in the surface I’m leaning to the one down the bottom of the weights. She won well at Gosford and the inside draw is great.

Race 5 – 2 Exoboom (one unit)
I know from the texts I received that a few of you took my lead and got on Exoboom last time. He gobbled them up like a good horse there and might have something on this lot as well. Prime Star is the obvious danger.

Race 6 – 10 True Detective (one unit)
What can beat Lost And Running? He’s certainly been impressive, but striking a soft track with a wide gate are two question marks when you’re $1.40. True Detective likes this distance range and is proven at Rosehill. He’s a monster price. Nothing crazy but I’ll see what coins are in my pocket.

Race 7 – 13 Fituese (three units)
I am very keen on Fituese in the sprint. She flies fresh and 1100 metres at Rosehill is perfect. Adelong will run along and is just a winner. Albumin loves the track and trip, then Fiesta and Zaniah.

Race 8 – 4 Salina Dreaming (two units)
Three from three on soft tracks is a good sign for top-rater Salina Dreaming. Her fresh win puts her front and centre here. Ocean Emperor was a bit disappointing with my money last time. He rates well at his best. This race marks the long-awaited return of 2020 breadwinner De Grawin. I’m going to risk her first up with the weight tug again, but I’m wary.

Race 9 – 14 Bentley Magic (one unit)
It is a massive field in the last. They’ll be coming from everyone. I’ll be cheering for the green silks of Bentley Magic at any old price. The 1400 metres is his go and the weight relief is a tick. At 50/1, it’s worth a crack.

Brisbane racing selections

Race 2 – 3 Fabric (one unit)
Fabric gets a few favours with scratchings and is the one I want to be on.

Race 4 – 12 Seat of Power (one unit)
Seat of Power bolted in two starts back. He’ll lead them up and should run the trip.

Race 7 – 1 Trekking (one unit)
I am risking Eduardo at 1200 metres. I’ve landed with Trekking. He’s the distance specialist who was just off track-record pace two starts back in the Manikato. This is a quality race.

Race 9 – 14 Westlink (one unit)
We’re getting any old price on the 9/14 Sydney Brisbane double. I have Westlink on top. He was very good in tougher company last week. The back-up is a tick, but the give in the track not so much. But at 20/1 or more, I’m with him.

Good luck all. It’s a big one. Please be in touch across the day with your tips and thoughts.

Harness racing selections: Friday, May 14

Two meetings to look at on Friday, with my focus at Mildura and Shepparton. The best bets for the respective programs are down below.

Mildura

Best bet: Race 1 Number 2 I’m Loki
Looks like a great way to start the program. This is a former Western Australia pacer that is having start one for Kate Hargreaves with Alex Ashwood in the sulky. We have seen time and time again with these pacers from WA, they are just better than the Eastern state brigade, especially in a class of races like this. I’m Loki has gate speed so should lead comfortably and at Mildura, that is the A1 spot to be.

Next-best: Race 3 Number 2 Miss Serena
This mare is best suited over the sprint trip so back to the 1790m is a big tick for her. You’d have to say that her recent form has been quite plain, but she gets a good set up here with the lead likely to be hers and the depth here compared to her recent outings isn’t overly strong.

Value: Race 6 Number 1 Skippers Swan Song
She is worth an each-way ticket at a decent price. Just got into a tricky spot from the second-row draw last time so I’d be willing to pen that run. She had the box seat sit the start prior and battled away really well when second. That is the type of run she’ll get here and can run a much-improved race at odds.

Shepparton

Best bet: Race 7 Number 10 Hell Of A Memory
NSW pacer that looks quite smart and confident he can measure up to this lot. He is first up here, having not raced since recording a very tough win in the Goulburn Guineas after being wide no cover for the last lap. A good test here to see where he is at, but he gets Greg Sugars to steer and a recent trial win was very encouraging.

Next-best: Race 8 Number 8 Jemsoms Pet
A quality four-year-old that resumes and he should get the perfect sit in the run behind a fast beginner and likely leader. He was far from disgraced during the Super Series when last in work but just lacked the class to go with them when it counted. The trial win was a sharp piece of work and he will prove hard to beat.

Value: Race 3 Number 1 Always Be Chloe
This looks a pretty thin race for the juveniles so happy to speck the one with hard race experience. Admittedly she hasn’t exactly set the world on fire in her career to date, but she does get a lovely trailing draw to use this time around, potentially sitting behind Tooby Gold and gets the box seat. If that eventuates, she can run a much-improved race.
