Daily Harness Tips – Wednesday 15th December
Bathurst - Race 1 7:03PM AEDT
No. 4 Smooth Bon Bon
In a wide-open event, this Steve Turnbull trained and driven filly seems to be a good chance.
Beaten narrowly in a deceptive finish over this track/distance seven days ago, this daughter of Captaintreacherous has been a marvel of consistency thus far into her career, recording seven placings and two wins from twelve starts.
This filly possesses enough gate speed to cross the runners drawn to her inside, and from there she will have plenty of options, making her a solid bet.
Bathurst - Race 7 10:07PM AEDT
No. 1 Silk Cloud
The clear class runner in this race, this Tony Higgs trained and driven filly looks an outstanding betting proposal.
Returning to the care of Higgs after a brief campaign with Belinda McCarthy, this juvenile was beaten a mere 3.1m in a rich Group One event at her last outing.
She has trialled well since, which indicates she has come through that run well.
Versatile enough to either lead or be driven cold, this daughter of Shadow Play should be able to make this race easy viewing for her backers.
Bathurst - Race 8 10:38PM AEST
No. 2 Lucky Ava
In a limited event, this Josh Turnbull trained filly’s form seems to read well from a kind draw.
The daughter of For A Reason while only a winner of one race, has often been thereabouts without threatening, including an 11m fifth placing at Young last start in a similar race.
Aided by the services of one of the nations best drivers in Amanda Turnbull, this filly should be able to enjoy a kind run in transit from the draw and will be highly competitive in the finish of this race
