Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing on Tuesday, June 2nd.
Tuesday sees two meetings take place in Queensland, along with a meeting each in New South Wales and Victoria. Luke Krahe has gone through the meetings at Warrnambool and Cessnock and picked out his best bets below.
(1) Rifles should be starting deep in the red but that doesn’t mean we aren't getting value in a race like this. He resumed at Wyong and sat outside the speed, got the better of the leader before straightening and was way to good winning by almost 5 lengths. He was again at Wyong at his first go out of maiden grade, he was beaten almost 2 lengths into third but had plenty of excuses. Firstly, he was vetted at the barriers, we all know how that usually ends. He was stuck wide without cover and had to work before getting to the breeze, layed in lost a plate and generally nothing went right. He is not officially first-up but is fresh off a 7-week break and has trialed well. He looks thrown in at this level.
(1) Daltoro is an Australian Bloodstock owned horse with the Lees and Gibbons combining, the chestnut gelding has been to the races once and was beaten almost 5 lengths on debut. There was support for him in that harder race at Scone, backed from double figures into an SP of $8.50. He settled mid-field off the rail and was over-racing badly. He chased hard but was no match for the impressive winner, today he comes back in trip and should be mid-field and charging home. The wide draw is no worry as they only come around the one turn, tactics aren't the top of the list when going over this trip!
(2) Tee Train doesn’t win out of turn but he usually races well enough here at his home track. He resumed at Werribee over 1400m and was held-up on a couple of occasions in the run, he actually did well to get within 3 lengths of the winner. He went to Casterton second-up and was very well backed late in the betting to start around the 2/1 mark. After settling mid-field he was once again held-up in the straight but was never going to beat the impressive Killavally. He gets out from 1400m-1700m today which looks to suit in what is not a great quality BM58 (not many of them are).
Please note, this selection has been scratched this morning.
(1) Our Wind Spirit is clearly one of the more interesting runners of the day/week, the Lindsey Smith trained gelding started his career in NZ and was placed on debut before being shipped across the Tasman. He had his first Australian start at Ballarat on the synthetic, he sat back in the field and well off the rail before charging to the front for a dominant win. He was again on that surface at his first go against other winners, he settled closer in the run and was held-up over the first furlong after straightening. He ran on hard when clear and did hit the front before being nabbed late. He resumes off a very long break of almost a year, he has had two jump-outs here at his home track. He jumped well and led but closer to the outside rail than the inner, was cruising in the straight when a couple of horses railed to take the lead and responded well when asked. A replay of that jump-out can be found here. Monitor the betting with this stable, the price can go off very quick!
