Today's Racing Tips: Wednesday, March 16th
Really liked the latest jumpout of (3) Lalaguna where they threw the blinkers on she really responded when asked for an effort. Ended up pulling away from them under a hold and she looks to be a nice type. Really well bred and Jamie Kah takes the ride from a nice draw. She will be hard to beat.
(1) Naval Seal really should have won on debut but was very green in the straight and cost himself the race. That was on a heavy track at Newcastle so there’s no question he should be handling the ground today. He’s extremely well bred and looks suited now rising to 1400m. Jmac takes over for the ride and with even luck I think this horse will just be winning.
I like (1) Seguso getting a nice 3kg claim off his back here and he won’t know himself dropping in the weights now after three runs with 61+ each time. Has been super competitive in those races and he looks to get a perfect run from a nice draw today. Has been in really good form and another win looks close.
(2) Grid was a great run on his Australian debut over a trip probably short of his best. The mile is more his go and will be much better for that fresh run. His form back in the UK was very solid and he seems to have adapted well to the local conditions. Alana Kelly rode the horse well in that first up run and with the claim again she can roll forward and take some running down now with the added fitness for the horse.
(12) Forbidden City gets well down in the weights here and is dropping back out of stakes grade for this. You can forgive her run there where she was just caught too wide and never in the hunt. Win before that was dominant (8L) on this track so she should enjoy getting back here. Slight query with the draw but hoping they go forward and makes use of the light weight.
