Welcome to our harness racing preview and betting tips for Albion Park on Tuesday, July 9th.
There's 10 races on today's card, with the first set down for 1.12pm AEST. Our harness racing expert Trent Orwin has provided his best bets of the meeting below.
A standing-start race over 2647m that could be won at the start. (1) Running Free mixes her manners and her last two starts have shown the bad. She will take catching if she leads from the inside barrier. (8) Matatoki is racing well with a win and two minors from his last three starts. He won off a 20m handicap two starts ago when working to the lead and rating 2:01.5. At his latest, he trotted a 2:00.2-mile rate when beaten 2.9m by Southern Alps. Can work to the breeze and go close here.
The Albion Park debut by (9) Tommy Under Fire was excellent on June 25 with the 5YO gelding running second behind Classie American. He began from this barrier and will look for a similar run in order to try and finish over the top of them. The mile rate of 1:56.2 was strong for this class over the 2138m and Tommy Under Fire looks the horse to beat here. (12) Hows The Memory is a New South Wales visitor and can be a major player despite the poor draw. (7) Superbass is also right in the mix from the wide barrier.
A competitive NR 80-90 race that will see gate speed from (1) Kotare York, (3) Gangster Boy and (5) Scoob Operator. The latter makes his WA debut for trainer-driver Dean Cernovskis and has a pair of runner-up performances behind Bernie Winkle and Vinny Chase. That form looks competitive in this grade and he is massive odds so worth the risk. I’m not sure where he will land from barrier five over the 1660m but he has the speed to be forward early. (6) Slice Of Heaven has strong claims in the race and so does (11) Effronte.
It is $3.60 the field in the last race of the day and (5) Key Largo will be trying to cross them at the start. I would say that he is a 50/50 or 60/40 chance to do so and would be able to run a big race from the front-end. Runner up in three of his last four starts, Key Largo was excellent last time when death seating in 1:53.3 and beaten 1.6m by Cool Scooter. Three starts ago he was second over the 2138m from back in the field. There are plenty of chances, too many in fact to name, but Key Largo looked the best value in the race.
