Daily Racing Tips – Wednesday 17th November


Sandown - Race 3 1:10pm AEDT

No. 4 Spinning

This is a big step back in class for Spinning, who basically had everything go wrong on Cup Day in the Red Roses Stakes.  

The daughter of Pierro is clearly a promising filly though with plenty of upside, and she does look tough to beat in this field with an experience edge over some of her rivals.

Tom Dabernig’s three-year-old won her maiden first-up at Horsham and was only two lengths off the winner in a Group 3 at Caulfield. Fitter and back in grade, she goes on top.

Sandown - Race 5 2:20pm AEDT

No. 4 Ruru

Ruru has a bit of a class edge over some of her rivals having competed at Group 1 level during the Brisbane Winter Carnival.

The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old has since resumed to run back-to-back fourth’s at Doomben and Flemington on Cup Day, and looks set to peak now third-up from a spell.

She gapped her rivals by a length in her third run back during the autumn and should get the gun run in transit along the rail under Brett Pebble.

Rosehill - Race 4 2:45pm AEDT

No. 4 Nothinsweetaboutme

Nothinsweetaboutme weakened late first-up at Canterbury but should be much-improved for that effort.

The daughter of So You Think rolled forward and was unlucky not to run a place after coming into contact with the leader down the straight.

She contested much tougher races than this during the autumn, most notably running fourth in the Group 3 Kembla Classic over the mile.

The extra trip should suit, and Tim Clark is the right man for the job.

Rosehill - Race 6 3:55pm AEDT

No. 3 Born a King

Born a King should take plenty of improvement away from his Australian debut when second behind Wednesday’s favourite Too Much Caviar at Randwick.

The Frankel gelding let down beautifully after overcoming a wide run in transit, and he should be saving his best for late again under Jason Collett.

He’ll only be fitter for the run and his form prior in Europe also reads well.
