Daily Racing Tips – Thursday 27th February
Newcastle - Race 1 12:15pm AEDT
No. 5 Kibibi
Kibibi is yet to break her maiden after nine career race starts but she has been runner up twice including a nice second at Newcastle last start. The Exceed And Excel filly has drawn well in barrier six and looks well placed to win the first event of the day.
Newcastle - Race 3 1:25pm AEDT
No. 5 Favra
Favra has missed a place just once in his five start race career including a narrow defeat at Warwick Farm last start. Brenton Avdulla will steer the three year old gelding and he has not had a better opportunity to break through for his maiden race win than this.
Newcastle - Race 7 3:55pm AEDT
No. 2 Corncrake
Corncrake has had two Australia starts now since arriving in from Great Britain and both runs have been full of merit. He will appreciate stepping out over even more ground for this race and should be ready to peak third up.
Newcastle - Race 8 4:30pm AEDT
No. 9 Oakfield Jet
I thought Oakfield Jet represented very good value in the last race of the day at Newcastle this afternoon. The eight year old gelding has only had the 14 career race starts for the two wins including a last start win at the track and distance. He rises only slightly in class but drops 3.5 kgs in weight.
