Welcome to our harness racing preview and betting tips for Gloucester Park on Tuesday, August 27th.
Trent Orwin has previewed some of the night's key races and offered his betting suggestions below.
A Level 6 race for the fillies and mares takes place over the 1730m. (2) Looks Official for trainer Peter Anderson looks to have found some form with a win and a second from her past three starts. She was too far back last start and will relish being on speed; most likely as the leader with (1) The Royal Lady racing on her back. (8) Zozo Ma Gogo and/or (9) Miss Tivoli could press forward at the start. Looks Official won from the breeze position at Pinjarra over 1684m when rating 1:56.1. A repeat performance of that effort will see her go very close to capturing another win. (10) Liaurie is a place chance. (11) Lil China Doll is a hard horse to catch.
Two starts ago (1) Rockmenow for trainer Kevin Charles finished second at Pinjarra over 2185m in a quick 1:56.6 mile rate. The 5YO entire didn’t have a lot of room to move last start when running eighth at Gloucester Park. Regular driver Hayden Charles has been replaced by Shannon Suvaljko which is a significant upgrade as Suvaljko is one of the best drivers in Western Australia. Rockmenow should lead and look to dictate in a race that doesn’t have a genuine breeze horse. (10) Kennys Revenge can fly home if he gets clear running late and (4) Dennis is down in class. Rockmenow’s last win came over R J Bopper who caused a big upset a fortnight ago, so that form reads well enough to win here.
One of the highlights on the card would have been the battle between (4) Arma Indie, (9) Justasec and (11) Bolta, however Justasec has unfortunately been scratched. The other two horses each represent a couple of the biggest trainers in the West. Arma Indie is trained by Mike Reed, while Bolta has recently joined Hall of Fame trainer Gary Hall Snr. Arma Indie is a tough 3YO filly to work out. She has obvious ability and her debut effort was good against Typhoon Tiff. She was then spelled and returned as a $1.34 favourite when beaten more than 100m. I have to overlook her here despite the good draw. That leaves me with Bolta on top. He was good in defeat last start when chasing home Infatuation at Pinjarra. The last half was run in 56.1 seconds and Bolta had to cover extra ground. He will need Arma Indie to not be 100 per cent because her best form does look too good for him; with queries on the favourite though, Bolta is backable.
