Daily Harness Tips – Wednesday 22nd December
Bathurst - Race 2 6:53PM AEDT
No. 9 Pampelonne
A runner having their first start this side of the Tasman, this three-year-old filly looks a leading chance.
After placing at three of her five starts on the other side of the ditch, this daughter of Somebeachsomewhere recorded a visually and statistically impressive trial win at Bathurst.
Although drawn awkwardly in barrier nine, this filly’s trainer and driver Mat ‘Miracle’ Rue is one of the best in the business, and should guide this filly to victory.
Bathurst - Race 3 7:23PM AEDT
No. 6 Cant Bluff You
This progressive gelding hailing from the in-form Michael Muscat stable looks well primed to record his second career victory here this evening.
At his most recent outing at Menangle this son of Roll With Joe was heavily supported, coming in from upwards of 11/1 into as low as $3.80 with some bookmakers. The money was nearly right, with this four-year-old savaging the line to finish second behind Girls Are Best, who has since won again.
Drawn in barrier six, this geldings racing pattern neglects the influence of the barrier, given he will get back and run on irregardless of the draw. In a racing lacking depth, this runner is a solid bet.
Bathurst - Race 4 7:50PM AEST
No. 9 Lucky Nutter
This veteran mare made a splendid return to racing seven days ago, and represents tremendous each-way odds.
Retuning off a four month let-up last outing, this mare finished third after doing work throughout the run behind He Said She Said, beaten under four metres. Pivotally, the Wendy Turnbull trained runner finished in front of Saint Emilion, who starts as the favourite later on the card in a stronger race.
Drawn to follow the favourite and likely leader, if this seven-year-old can reproduce her run from last start she will be highly competitive with Emma Turnbull holding the reins.
