Narrogin Harness Tips: Friday, May 17th

May 17th 2019, 1:23pm, By: Trent Orwin

With Gloucester Park racing on Saturday afternoon this weekend, our attention turns to Narrogin harness racing on Friday night.

We've picked out our best three bets on the card below!


Narrogin Harness Racing Tips: Friday, May 17th

Race 1 – 7:15pm AEST

Expect gate speed from (2) Night Manoeuvres and (4) Looks Official with the latter likely to lead during the race. The Peter Anderson-trained 3YO filly has been placed at her last two at Wagin and Pinjarra. She chased home The Kraken in the latest as he slipped home in 56.5 seconds. Four starts ago Looks Official was beaten 2.7m by Arma Veyron in a bunched finish at Narrogin when running fifth over the 1823m. (7) Watch Me React and (9) She Said Diamonds are the main dangers.

My Rated Price: $2.70

Race 4 – 8:44pm AEST

A bit of a class drop for (6) Mega Moolah who has good gate speed and capable of running strong sectionals against this field. (3) Manhattan Billy and (4) Raging Romeo can show early speed beneath Mega Moolah. I’m not sure if Manhattan Billy will hold or surrender if he finds the pegs first but Raging Romeo wouldn’t be relinquishing the top. Mega Moolah chased home Ideal Liner at Bunbury last start in what became a sprint home. His form all season has been good and he should go very close against this opposition. (8) Lil China Doll is also in the hunt.

My Rated Price: $2.00

Race 5 – 9:20pm AEST

Standing-start racing in the country is a wonderful sight and very keen on (2) Ultimate Offer off a 10m handicap. This horse has a bit on the front, 10m and 20m lines and would be competitive against the 30-60m line in a mobile race. The head-start that Ultimate Offer receives here could prove the difference for the Dennis Roche-trained 4YO gelding. Driver Dylan Egerton-Green will be searching for the lead and if he gets a clean getaway, Ultimate Offer should prove hard to stop. This is his first time behind the tapes but has won a trial under these conditions and $2.60 looks value.

My Rated Price: $1.90
