Daily Racing Tips – Monday 22nd February
Terang - Race 5 3:30pm AEDT
No. 1 Cake Walker
Cake Walker has been racing well this campaign and this looks like another nice race for her.
She showed a nice turn-of-foot to get the job done at Kilmore two starts ago and there was plenty to like about her effort at Warrnambool as well.
Barrier one is ideal and she should get every possible chance in the run with John Allen in the saddle.
Terang - Race 6 4:00pm AEDT
No. 5 Nama Dude
This is a very open field and I think that luck in running will prove crucial.
There is very little early speed in this contest and Dean Holland should be able to control the race on Nama Dude in the early stages.
His recent form hasn’t been great, but the step-up in trip will suit and he will give his rivals something to chase.
Terang - Race 7 4:30pm AEDT
No. 1 Major Paterson
Major Paterson is very rarely far away at this level and this looks like a lovely race for the veteran gelding.
He was tough behind Fudging at Stony Creek last start and this contest does look like a genuine drop in quality.
Barrier five is ideal and he will make his own luck right on the speed with Harry Coffey in the saddle.
Terang - Race 8 5:00pm AEDT
No. 1 Our Free Spirit
Our Free Spirit was able to return to winning form at Yarra Valley last start and a repeat of that effort would make him very tough to beat.
He ran good time in that contest and the field that he meets this afternoon really doesn’t seem that much tougher.
Barrier nine will allow him to roll forward and he will make his own luck right on the speed.
