Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing on Friday, November 29th.
We round out the week with eight race meetings in Australia as we lead into Winterbottom Stakes day on Saturday. Luke Krahe has picked out his best bets for Muswellbrook, Rockhampton and Cranbourne below!
(5) Magic Richard has been to the races twice and not been closer than 4 lengths to the winner and not started shorter than 20/1. That was almost a year ago that we last saw him, since then he has been given the big chop and resumes here as a gelding. He had a trial at Newcastle recently on the Beaumont track, jumped well and sat outside the leader. He quickly got the better of that horse when asked early in the straight to win by a half-length with almost 6 lengths back to third. The horse that sat inside him that trial and he beat convincingly has since come out and been well backed and win at Port Macquarie during the week by almost three lengths. He looks to be a new horse, has the speed to be on the pace over the 900m from the good draw and gets gun rider Aaron Bullock steering. There are a couple of Brett Cavanough debutants, the stable usually has some support.
(1) Red Heeler has to take the step out of maiden grade for the first time but she gets a winnable race taking on the girls at 64 grade. She debuted over 1100m at Moe back in mid-October, ran on well but never looked likely in a race that has produced 4 subsequent winners. She then went to Pakenham and was easy in the betting, starting in double figures at some agencies. She was mid-field in the run, saved ground on the turn and ran on strongly between runners to get up on the line by the barest of margins. The gap back to third was almost 5 lengths! The only horse to race again out of that maiden, Lake Tanganyika, was beaten more than 12 lengths and has since come out and won her maiden at Moe by 2.5!! Red Heeler gets out to the 1500n which looks to suit, the mile probably looks the right trip. She should settle mid-field and finish too well.
(2) Write Enuff hasn’t won a race since she debuted at the Bool carnival back in 2018, but I like what she has done at her last two since resuming this campaign. Both runs have been at the Valley, the latest was in a much harder race than this. She over-raced early and was forced to sit three-wide without cover on the speed, she rounded them up as they straightened and kicked hard but was mowed down late after doing a stack of work. She does need to settle better but hopefully she gets away and can get cover one-out and one-back. There is plenty of speed here, if she can drop her head and ease around them at the top of the straight, she will be too strong. Luke Currie off, Ethan Brown on.
I am having a throw at the stumps her with one that is likely to be huge odds. (3) King Kai has not placed at four career runs. He was beaten out of sight at his first two before going to the paddock. He resumed here six weeks ago, there was a little bit of support for him at double figure odds and after sitting wide without cover he dropped off. Once again last start he was caught mid-field and wide without cover, he was battling away when he was checked at about the 200m mark. Although he didn’t look like running a place at the time, he lost all momentum and did a great job to kick back and was actually running through the line well, beaten just over 3 lengths. Drawn closer in here he should get a more economical run (hard to be three-wide no cover from two?) and may just surprise, fully fit third-up.
