Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing on Thursday, November 28th.
There's six race meetings across Australia throughout the day today and Luke Krahe has provided his best bets for four of them. Get his tips for Wyong, Bendigo, Narromine and Pakenham below!
(5) Wicked Wench won her maiden at Hawkesbury when resuming, she over-raced, did plenty wrong and was forced to sit wide without cover, and was still way too good. She then went to Rosehill last Wednesday against the girls, bumped another runner at the start and never looked comfortable. She raced very flat which they can do second-up, back in trip from the good draw I expect Tommy Berry to be positive early. It was only her second run in a year since coming from NZ following her debut run, she should be fully fit now. (3) Brunetta will be well found in the betting, she was brilliant winning her maiden by a gap job at Kembla last time. She has the claiming jock and an inside draw, that can be a brutal combo here at Wyong up the short straight. She was very impressive in that first win, but why did it take until start nine to see it? Take her on.
(3) Next Dimension is a first-starter for the Hawkes team, he is a 4YO so he has been given plenty of time to get to the races. He has not been seen at the official trials but has had three jump-outs this month at Flemington. Two back he jumped well and was ridden out to win in the second fastest time of the day. Last time he was also well away, sat outside the lead and was cuddled through the line. He looked like he had plenty up his sleeve, although the time wasn’t great, the two in front could have gone a lot quicker. He gets a very winnable maiden here on debut and I like the fact that he has not only been safely away in the last two jump-outs, but actually beaten them out. (7) The Driller is a debutant from the Godolphin yard for James Cummings, I was very un-impressed by his recent jump-out, he ran second but was pushed out after saving ground and still couldn’t get past the post first in the slowest time of the day.
(2) Mellors has been very consistent throughout his career, winning or running a place in 9 of 13 career starts. He resumed across the border at Morphetville on the Parks circuit last start, he started favourite in a BM66 and after working early to get on speed, weakened late to finish a distant third. He won last prep when second-up her eat the track and trip after sitting up outside the speed, he followed it up with another win here to stay undefeated at two starts at the track. There doesn’t look to be much speed drawn wider than him, if he can cross the inside couple early he should be able to get the front and dictate with some cheap sectionals.
(2) Haralben is resuming today, he has been to the races 5 times for 2 wins. He wo his maiden here at the track and trip last prep after leading all the way, he followed it up with a win at Wellington after taking a sit at huge odds but braining them by more than 2 lengths over the short course. His latest run before going to the paddock was in a harder races than this, he sat outside the lead and stuck on well to place. He has been to the trials at Canberra a couple of weeks ago, he sat outside the leader before getting past it easily, he was pushed along late but responded before easing down late to run second. He has plenty of speed and the good gate, this looks his race.
