Horse Racing Tips: Thursday, May 9th

Hawkesbury Race 4

(3) Satirical Knight resumed at Wyong a couple of weeks ago, he was heavily supported and was most unlucky. He settled back in the field, automatically a negative at Wyong, then had to ease around runners before attacking the line strongly. He lost momentum at a vital stage and was strong through the line only to be beaten under a length. He was a close-up placing when second-up at his first prep, that weight of money fresh surely meant he was showing plenty on the training track. Expect him to be well backed again and suited on the bigger track here.

Hawkesbury Race 6

(1) Bondi Boy won his maiden at Wyong on a heavy track three starts back, he then ran on hard to place at his first go out of that grade at the same venue. He then travelled south to Kembla last start, was well backed around the 3/1 mark and charged home in a race where the tempo was against those back in the field. HE will no doubt be giving them a start, but the speed looks genuine on paper, look for him late from the perfect middle draw.

Hawkesbury Race 8

In what looks a very open race to finish the card, Kris lees brings (7) Scenic Flight down the F3 to Hawkesbury, he looks to be crying out for the trip. She is 3YO filly taking on the older horses, the Ex-Weir runner has been with the new stable for two starts. She tackled the best stayers of her age-group in the Spring, ran on hard at Newcastle over 1400m resuming then went to Port Macquarie and did similar last start. She gets out to the 1800m and should be at peak fitness. Look for her late, she looks to have above average talent. Back her each-way.

Seymour Race 1

There is no doubt that there is going to be some opposition in the betting to (3) Hautclere. He is a twelve-start maiden, six of those times he has been runner-up. He has been very costly for punters beaten as favourite a few times of late, but I really like the map that he has here. He has good tactical speed but there is plenty drawn underneath him, he should be able to come across and get the cold sit in the box seat. From there, he should be able to let down and finish too strong. Even if he has to face the breeze, this doesn’t look a deep maiden and this looks his chance.

Seymour Race 7

(9) Haylin Rouge has had four runs this time in, improving at each of them. She got further back than what we expected last time but ran on well into second. She has the middle draw here and I expect her to be much more prominent. If it is favourable to be up in the speed early in the card, don’t be surprised if Chris Symons has her in front not long after the start. She is so consistent, and has proved her versatility.
