Horse Racing Tips - Saturday, February 20th 2021

Caulfield Race 1

(4) Defibrillate should be hard to beat in the Mornington Cup prelude. He’s a winning machine, with eight victories from 12 starts, including his past three. He steps back up to 2000m today, should get the sit off a decent tempo with the likes of Wolfe and Blenheim Palace in the race, and his turn of foot should be enough to get him home. He’s undefeated at the distance and undefeated at the track, and he’s the one they have to beat again.

Rosehill Race 9

The French import (4) Lackeen looks a very good chance of winning at his first Australian start. He’s had four starts over in France for a win and a couple of placings, and his recent trial was outstanding. He settled back in the field and made good ground under his own steam. Resumes over 1400m with James McDonald in the saddle and I think he finds a very winnable race. No surprise to see him go off in betting.

Ascot Race 5

I think (4) Pletto will be hard to beat here second up from a spell and up to the 1500m. His first up run was good and second up last preparation he was a dominant winner. The form behind London Miss is quite good and so long as he gets a decent run throughout, he should be hitting the line hard late. (3) Uncle Dick can bounce back from what appeared a poor run first up, but I’d be forgiving him for that and the tongue tie goes on for the first time.

Ascot Race 7

The staying race of the day brings one at decent odds which I think has been underrated by the market. (4) Winifer is a $26 chance here after a poor run last time out at Pinjarra, but if you put a line through that, its form is actually very good for a race like this. Her trainer said she just didn’t handle Pinjarra at all last start, but prior to that she won over this track and distance in this grade, and ran 2nd the start before that. Her overall record over the 2200m at Ascot is very good and if she runs as she did two starts ago, she’ll go close at big odds.
