Midweek racing from around the country on Wednesday brings us strong meetings at both Warwick Farm and Sandown. Billy Bestford has done the form and highlights his best bets throughout the day.
Horse Racing Tips - Wednesday, June 30th
Warwick Farm Race 5
I made a case for (5) Matowatakpe last start in a stronger race than this and he ran well, running on late to finish 6th. Looks suited back to this grade, up in trip 3rd up now and ready to peak, he looks a good bet. Handles all conditions and will just need some luck from the wide draw.
Warwick Farm Race 6
Keen to be with (1) Hibiscus Lady again today who looks bursting to win one this prep. Continues to improve with each run and now looks ready to peak 3rd up from a spell. The claim for Louise Day is a positive in this high-weighted race and confident she can run well.
Warwick Farm Race 7
(16) Promise Of Success was absolutely smashed in betting on his Australian debut before bolting in by 2L over this trip. Will have no issues with the conditions today and should only be fitter on the back of that first up run. Any natural improvement will see him hard to beat today. The price is gone since some key scratchings but looks the anchor leg for a lot of multis today.

Sandown Race 6
(11) Smokin Romans should have won last start but didn’t see clear air until very late. Absolutely flew home once he did and has been in great form all prep. Providing he hasn’t come to the end of his prep I think he’ll be extremely hard to beat. Looked suited at this longer trip last time out and will be going close.
Sandown Race 8
(3) Nikau Spur has showed plenty of talent in his short career so far. Takes a slight step up in grade here but gets some weight relief with the claim for Will Price. Only fail this prep came when lame at Warnambool and wins either side of that we’re very good. Looks to have more upside than most of these and should be right in the finish.
