Aussie Horse Racing Tips – 23rd – 25th June 2017
There’s no need to panic but Saturday sees the Group 1 racing season in Australia wind down. At least it’s a high quality race that brings the curtain down in the shape of the Tattersall’s Tiara.
The Tattersall’s Tiara was first introduced to racing fans in 1989 when it was known as the Winter Stakes.
Over the years the prestige of the race has increased and it now carries a purse of A$500,000 with well over A$300,000 going to the winner.
Run over a distance of 1,350 meters at Doomben, the Tattersall’s Tiara is open to fillies and mares aged three years and older. It is a very competitive race but it’s worth noting that two of the last three renewals have been won by the bookies’ favourite.
This time around it is In Her Time who leads the early betting.
The four-year-old comes into the race with a big billing but this will be anything but plain sailing for the classy mare from Ben Smith’s yard.
Drawn out wide in barrier 16 and with an extra 3.5kg to carry, she’ll need to be at her absolute best to hold off the likes of Bonny O’Reilly and Prompt Response.
But, is she simply going to prove to be too good for her rivals? We think so, so recommend betting on her at a best price of $3.40 with Bet365.
In the search for horses who are most likely to challenge In Her Time, the bookies believe that Prompt Response is the one to watch.
The three-year-old has shown some impressive form in her relatively young career and big things could be awaiting her next season. We’re just not sure she’s got the pace in her legs to stop In Her Time should the favourite turn up in tip top shape.
She’s going to be a feature for sure but we don’t think she’ll win, nor does she look big enough at $6 with Palmerbet for an each-way play.
One horse who does look like a tempting each-way option is Danish Twist at $18 with Luxbet.
The five-year-old has shown before that she is capable of winning races of this calibre even if a win in the Tatts Tiara would be the biggest prize of her career.
Those who watched Danish Twist last time out in Rosehill won’t have been too impressed by what they saw. She went off as an 8/1 shot and only finished seventh.
However, that was her first appearance for two months and trainer, Kris Lees, was using that 1,400 meter run as a warm up for Saturday and is confident about her chances.
She’ll doubtless be fitter and more ready for a big race when she turns up to Doomben which makes her very tempting at $18.
Our final tip is for Sold For Song to be placed at odds of $5 with Unibet.
There is little doubting the five-year-old has the quality to get the job done in the Tatts Tiara but there are big question marks about the track at Doomben.
It just looks too tight for her to show her best but £5 does look a very big price for a horse of Sold For Song’s pedigree to at least keep pace with the leaders and bag a place.
