Wangaratta - Race 2 1.35pm AEDT
It is rare that we include debutants in the daily racing tips, but Mystical Rose really does look well-placed in this contest. She has recorded two impressive barrier trial wins ahead of her racing debut and there is no real quality in this field. It would not surprise to see her go straight to the front and record a very easy win.
Wangaratta - Race 5 3:20pm AEDT
Blinky O’Reilly has raced well without winning during his campaign to date and this is a genuine drop in class. He maps to get a lovely run right on the speed with Michael Poy in the saddle and he may never have a better chance to return to winning form than this contest this afternoon.
Orange - Race 6 4.03pm AEDT
Latin Boy returned to his best form with an excellent performance at Muswellbrook last start and his best form does give him a genuine edge over the rest of this field. He has recorded four wins from seven race starts over 1000 metres and he has had success carrying big weights in the past.
Orange - Race 7 4:38pm AEDT
There is not a great deal of speed in the Orange Gold Cup and Cowboys Karma should get a very soft lead. He led from start to finish to beat a similar field in the Orange Cup Prelude last start. A repeat of that performance would make him very tough to beat and there is no reason that he can’t make it back-to-back wins.
