Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing on Monday, July 8th.
Luke Krahe has provided his best bets for Wagga, Mildura and Gunnedah below!
(5) Taliano has been to the races twice in his short career, he debuted at Bendigo at the start of last month at huge odds and made some ground form the back in a race that was dominated by the on-pacers. There have been two subsequent winners come from that race, proving the form line to be a good one. He then went to Albury for start two was an easing favourite around the even money mark on the heavy track and ran second. He was a mile back in the run and showed a good turn-of-foot to contend late, admittedly he had his chance but the track condition may have caught up with him. Back on the soft today and the big track, look for him late in what will be not his only win of his career.
Three last start winners at the top of proceedings here, (3) Jodhpur looks to have as much upside as any horse at the meeting, his recent trial was exceptional. He jumped well and cruised through to lead, railed hard and controlled it all the way down the straight. At no stage did the jock go for him and he did it with ease sticking with the horse to his outside who really had to be shaken up. He has been to the races once, a maiden win here more than a year ago so he has obviously had some issues getting back to the race track. He did get back and ran on but the recent trial showed that he does have some tactical speed. The main danger looks to be last start maiden winner (1) Galaxy Force who bolted in at Corowa but is also first-up. He showed a stack of speed to lead all the way that day and was eased down late to win by a big margin. If there is any money for him late, make him a chop-out and don’t be losing on him.
(9) Life In Manhattan has been costly for punters in his eight-start career, starting at $3 or less in his last five starts he is still yet to break the maiden status. Saying that this looks by far the easiest race he has contested of late, he handles the soft track and although he appeared to have every chance last time, he looks suited back on the turf. Hopefully they ride him like the best horse in the race, positive, going forward and early and I have no doubt he can sit on the speed and wide and beat these. He will probably be a drifter closer to jump time, the big punters like to take on these types.
(2) Don’t Get Excited is a veteran of 81 starts, ensuring there will be plenty of resistance against him in the betting. I love the way he maps here and with the 3kg claiming jock going on, I am hoping that she will push early from the good ate and attempt to lead all the way. He was only fair on the heavy track last time and is very one-paced, but his run prior was encouraging where he was no closer than three-wide without cover throughout and stuck on well to only be beaten a bit over a length. He will be double figure odds but worth a dabble each-way in a race where there are no stars. He should be making his own luck on the speed.
(6) Key Factor has won three of her five career starts, she debuted back on Melbourne Cup Day at Albury at the picnics and bolted in and was going through the grades nicely last prep. She is first-up off an 18-week break, hasn’t been seen at the official trials but don’t be deterred. She is drawn beautifully in 4, has very good speed and if regular rider Mikayla Weir wants to lead, she will be able to. All three of her wins have been when finding the rails first, a nice long run to the only turn here at Gunnedah means if she does land on the bunny, they won’t be running her down. Any late money suggesting the fitness levels are there would be encouraging. Also of note, concussion plates are off which is never seen as a negative!
