Horse Racing Tips – Friday 17th June

Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews today’s Goulburn meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for 3 races. Good luck, punters!

Track: Soft 6

What a fascinating race to start the card with. VYNER is the favourite and will be pretty short on the strength that he has won a race and was placed at the provincials last start. It was a great run as he led and was run down late over 2000m. Is fitter now, but so is the maiden filly AUSBRED BLUEBIRD. She was bred for this trip and gets a rack at it for the first time today off the back of a few provincial maiden runs where she rattled home into a place. Drawn perfectly, she sits back in about 5th spot on the fence then if that powerful finish is there she flies at Vyner who will be in front at the 100m. Great quinella bet.


Interesting race. I do like one here and will bet accordingly. It’s the rising star REACH FOR GOLD. Today is his 3rd start and his first for a while but of late he was won two trials in dashing manner. Looks to have a great deal of talent for this level. And…he gets a 1.5kg claim courtesy of the inform rider Jackson Searle. That actually makes him weighted well here. On debut he beat DIJON who he faces again here. Now, because of the claim and the fact Dijon has gone on and won a race, Reach For Gold meets him  1.5kg better for beating him! They do look the best horses in the race and I suspect they run the quinella.


I believe this LAWYER’S DELIGHT is a good horse in the making. Big call considering he’s had just 5 starts and is in a bush Cl 2 but I rate him as a progressive type. As such, if I get the $5.60 available right now, I shall go all chips in. He won two in a row since resuming and won them with authority. This is a step up but he is super fit now.
