Welcome to our preview and horse racing betting tips for midweek racing at Kensington and Sandown Lakeside for Wednesday, February 6th.
We’ve picked out our best bets across the two cards below!
Competitive little race but Star Of The Seas appeals at $3.80. She returns from a spell having won two of her four career starts, both of which came last preparation. She’s had the two trials leading into today and provided she gets a good run from barrier 11, she should be somewhere in the finish. Tchaikovsky is the current race favourite but I’m happy to oppose him. He gets the blinkers applied for the first time but he’s still only the winner of one race which was a Gosford maiden as a two-year-old. Platinum Tycoon had excuses first up and could be the value at $8.
Another Chris Waller-trained horse that should go well is Kolding. He won his maiden first up and didn’t get the clearest passage late in the straight so he possibly should have won by more. Should improve both second up and out to 1400m. Corey Brown takes over from Bowman and draws well in barrier 7. Competitive race but I’d be surprised if he didn’t run well. $6.00 each way looks good.
I Know That hit the line hard at her first career run at Geelong, where she was beaten less than a length over 1300m. She ran the fastest final 200m of the race, which was also the second-fastest final 200m of the entire meeting. With that in mind, the step up to 1400m should be ideal and the form out of her debut has already been franked. Good draw, Damian Lane on, $5.50 looks a good each way bet.
I’ve got this pretty comfortably between Bravo Tango and Gold Mag as the market suggests. I’m going to stick with the second-favourite Bravo Tango, who ran the faster final sectionals when they met first up (and finished ahead of Gold Mag). He’s also won a trial since that placing behind Tin Hat and the form out of that race has proven very strong. Gold Mag has been well-backed and may prove to be the better horse in the long run, no surprise to see him winning this.
Age Of Chivalry should be very competitive here on the back of his first up win at this track and distance but I’m going to have him as a saver bet and back Signature Street for a better return. Huge query on the horse as it’s an ex-Weir horse making its stable debut for Mitch Freedman but it ran a huge race first up behind Mystyko and that form is strong. It sat wide without cover the entire race so it was a huge effort to finish as close as it did. Good record at this distance and has finished 2nd on both occasions at the track and distance. Won second up last prep, draws well and can win this.
