Welcome to our horse racing preview and betting tips for racing on Tuesday, November 26th.
There's just the two race meetings in Australia this afternoon, with Kyneton and Port Macquarie each hosting eight races.
Luke Krahe has picked out his best bets of the day below.
There is only one horse in this maiden that has been to the races more than (5) Harlin Express, this is certainly her last chance before she is penned to never back again. She looks to have come back well this campaign, she resumed at Seymour and ran on well over 6 furlongs to be beaten under a length into fourth. She was then here at her home track last time, again settling well back and was held-up when the runs came approaching the turn, losing valuable momentum. She got to the outside and made good ground into second, beaten 0.3 lengths. She stays at the same trip and is drawn wide, gets the winkers back on and just needs the right horse to cart her into it at the business end. Look for her late.
(6) Saint Katarina is no star, but she is very honest. She was beaten narrowly in a four-way go last start at Seymour, not usually a great sign, but she clearly had to do the most of work of those fighting it out late. She worked early three-wide without cover to face the breeze outside the leader, took over on the turn only to be run down late. The start prior she was unlucky after being held-up for the best part of 400m, got out late and hit the line hard. She will go forward, if she can get cover in the box seat or lead, coming back in trip looks ideal and she should be a little sharper.
(9) Bear The Crown is lining up for career start number three today. He debuted here back in early October, was huge odds against the girls over 1200m and savaged the line late after getting a mile back. She then went to her home track at Kempsey last time and stepped up in trip, she was under pressure a long way out but responded to the rider and hit the line well in a race dominated by those on the speed. She again gets out in trip, this time to the 1500m, gets a perfect draw off the inside where the jock will have all the options. If she begins well, I wouldn’t be shocked if they even had a crack at the front from this alley. (1) Elgin is likely to start the favourite, as the Lees/Bullock stable usually does in these parts of the world, but I am happy to take him on. He is a 9-start maiden that has had his chances, last time he had the perfect run and hit the front only to be nabbed late. He maps well again but I think that at the price,. Bear The Crown is more attractive and has more upside.
The third race of the day looks very open on paper, I had marked (4) Cascade County equal favourite so the double figures that is offered early looks very juicy on an each-way basis. The 4YO gelding was initially trained in Vic by Peter Gelagotis, after 5 (unimpressive) starts was transferred to the Bob Milligan stables down the Highway at Taree. He was poor at his first start for the stable and sent straight to the spelling paddock, resuming at Ballina three weeks ago after almost 6-months off. He was backed as if unbeatable that day and almost started favourite after double figures were bet. He over-raced badly on the rails and only ran on fairly into third, the margin was large but he winner has come out and ran a nice race on the Gold Coast since in a harder Class 1. He gets the blinkers back on today with the claim, the inside draw is a little issue but hopefully he begins well and the jock can take up a position. I expect that he will be well backed again.
