Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing on Monday, September 9th.
The Spring racing carnival continues to draw closer and we begin a fresh week of racing with meetings at Queanbeyan, Scone and Wodonga on Monday, September 9th. Find our best bets of the day below!
(6) The Swell is a Waterhouse/Bott runner that has been to the races once. She was at Canberra on the synthetic track and although she started favourite, she was very easy in the betting with the official flucs of $1.90-$2.35. She had her chance and that was a harder race than this, she comes back against the girls and can expect her to be up on the speed for a long way. Interestingly the main danger looks the stablemate to our pick that is on debut, (7) Dazzling Damsel. She has trialed ok in tow a couple of times, Winona Costin rides her and Blake Spriggs rides our pick. If the money switches late and they come for the debutant, play safe.
(1) Luna Mia is going to start a very short priced favourite and deservedly so, the second favourite (3) Stampede Warrior will be a scratching as he won yesterday. So, we go looking for some value as the fave will be deep into the red. (9) Morotai was resuming at Dubbo last start, he started near the top of the market at maiden level and ran on hard to win comfortably with a gap to third. That race was only three weeks ago and the race has proven a good form guide. The runner-up won at Mudgee yesterday comfortably and he had every chance in that maiden at Dubbo. He has to step out of maiden grade into a Class Two but looks suited getting out to the 1200m. He will be well into double figures and should be able to get better than $3 a place, drops a stack in weight from that maiden win and gets champion jock Rob Thompson going on.
(9) Marokawa has been up for a long time but has had his runs well spaced in the latter part of the prep. He has won two from four here at his home track, two starts back he ran on hard from a mile back and was only beaten 2 lengths from an impossible position. He was here again at 58 grade last time and SP’d 3/1, was in the three-wide line in the run but had cover worse than mid-field. He ran on hard hitting the front inside the furlong and kept going to make it a gap job by almost 4 lengths. I like to use these races as form references when the margin was large, the third horse has since come out and won a 58 at Bathurst, and a horse he beat 7 lengths has since come out and brained them at Toowoomba on Saturday by almost three lengths in a BM62. Back in trip is a little concern as he will get back, but the speed looks good enough on paper. The main danger looks to be the toppie (1) Burning Crown, he was racing consistently in town at his last couple before going to the paddock. He has won fresh but although he likes to race on the speed, without a trial or jump-out under his belt he may need the run and find them a bit nippy early.
(10) Tuesday Cabernet is having her fourth start for the Bussuttin/Young stable, that yard is on fire at the moment. Two starts back at Bendigo she had a nice run in transit, finished off well enough into second but did have every chance. The winner of the race came out and run a ripper to narrowly go down in town last time. She then went to Mornington against the boys, started favourite and again hit the line ok but without excuses. She gets out to the mile for the first time here and back against the girls, draws well, should be camped behind the leaders, this looks her race to lose. The confidence will grow as always with this yard if there is good money late.
