Horse Racing Tips: Wednesday, November 24th
Gosford Race 1
(2) Mr Burgundy comes out of a good form race from his debut and there was plenty to like about the run there. He will take a heap of improvement out of that run and I’d expect him very hard to beat today. The current favourite ran yesterday so I’d expect Mr Burgundy will start odds on but he should be too good for these today and doubt he remains a maiden for long.
Gosford Race 4
(3) Rubinocchi won her maiden on a heavy track when first up last prep so should handle the wet conditions today. Won two of three starts in that last campaign and showed a bit of ability along the way. The most recent trial was a nice bit of work and I’d suggest from barrier 1 today she should be nice and prominent in the run. She’s lightly raced and can take the next step here.
Gosford Race 6
(9) Almighty Rising will probably lead this field up and think he might be too good for these. Had two runs last prep, both on rain affected tracks where he ran very well. Won his maiden in good style before running 2nd to a smart horse in Larkspur Run on a heavy Canterbury track. Berry sticks for the ride today and I think he’s got a bit of upside about him.

Sandown Race 2
(7) Guardian Spirit was a very impressive winner last start. Smashed in betting on the day and was trapped wide without cover for most of the race but still ran on strongly to win by more than 2 lengths. He’s got a heap of improvement to come 2nd up today and he should map for a much more economical run today. Hard to beat.
(7) Guardian Spirit
Sandown Race 6
Looking forward to seeing the Australian debut of (4) Witsabouthim. He should arguably been unbeaten in three runs in NZ but atoned for his unlucky debut with two very strong wins. Comes into this off the back of a couple of a jumpouts and I think he might have an exciting future here in Aus. Gets a good claim today to offset the weight and expecting to see him flashing home late here.
