Horse Racing Tips – Sunday 20th February

Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews the race meeting this afternoon at Queanbeyan, with horse racing tips and analysis for 3 selected races. Good luck, punters!


Interesting race here. ,Amy with hopes here as 5 of the 8 are last start placegetters in this grade and of that quintet, 4 of them were runner-ip last start. So all deserve a victory today. I’ relying on barriers as the gauge here. SMART LASS is pretty consistent at this level having placed 3 of her last 4 runs, and she has drawn the best gate today. She steps from the rails and in previous starts she has been out deep and still run well. What I also like about her is the fact she has been here and placed. This is a tricky little track so experience is important. EPAULLO CREED is also consistent.  Quinella them up.

Tip: SMART LASS  @ $4.30

Here’s a fascinating race. This top weight FINAL SHOWDOWN is no world-beater but probably doesn’t need to be to win this. She gets a 2kg claim which helps. The last time she was in a BM 50 race she ran gutsy 2nd at the Sapphire Coast. Since then she has raced 4 times, all in stronger races and done well. last start for instance, she claimed a Cl 2 at a non-Tab venue but there were 11 in it and a Cl 2 is stranger than this. Does go up a lot in weight though but has won here in the past. MOGARTO has run back into form and has her foot on the till.  Quinella them also.


This is a fair old step up in grade for the lightly raced MISS LAMAR but she is a speed demon and that’s what’s needed around here. Actually, she won her maiden here this trip by a big margin showing dazzling speed. If they leave her alone in front she wins. Really like her.

Tip: MISS LAMAR @ $2.50
