Horse Racing Tips: Wednesday, December 29th
Gosford Race 1
Think (3) Twilight Affairs can take massive improvement from the debut performance where she started a short-priced favourite. That was off the back off a number of nice trials and I just think she might not have loved the wet conditions on race day. Should get drier conditions here and she’ll find the front and doubt she remains a maiden for too long.
(3) Twilight Affairs
Mornington Race 2
(2) Inner Spirit was a bit green first up when starting a $1.60 chance. Ran okay for 2nd behind a horse who looks above average and he can bounce back here 2nd up. Will probably have to go forward from the wide gate and hoping he can improve his racing manners and be too tough to run down today.
Gosford Race 4
(12) Petulant should be able to handle the rise from maiden grade here and looked good winning that last start. Can settle up near the speed from barrier 4 and looks a progressive enough type. This is a relatively weak looking 64 and she can take the next step here with just natural improvement.
Gosford Race 7
(2) Brookspire looks well placed here third up and rising to the mile. Looked very good winning last start over 1400m and was very well backed on the day. Gets a weight swing on Expat today following the first up defeat and from barrier two today I’d expect them to be able to settle a little closer here. Handles all conditions and she’s ready to win again.
Mornington Race 7
(11) Sniper Legend looked very unlucky not to win first up in a weaker race. Rises in grade here but should be improved following that run and will take some extra fitness out of it. Don’t mind him rising to 1200m for the first time and he’s shown in short career so far that he’s got some ability. Yet to miss the quinella in four starts and gets a big weight drop from the first up run.
