Horse Racing Tips – Friday 4th February

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


Interesting race here. I believe all of them have winning chances which will make for a good betting race. And on that, I think OBELOS who it must be said has been disappointing during his career, can atone today. He is 2nd up after a really good first-up 3rd in a BM 74 which was probably a length better than this. Add to that he has a terrific 2nd up record, surprisingly. Runs his best race in this slot. Should be off the speed all the way and if he is back to his best, he should run past MOOKAREENA who should lead and will take catching.  Quinella them.

Tip: OBELOS @ $7.00


Here’s a fascinating race. I’m on the mare down in weights called OUT WRAPPED. I think, going back to the weights, that she is in this very, very well. Today she is 3rd up after a really good 4th at Bathurst then beaten only 4 lengths at Wyong. That Wyong race was much stronger than this and she strips fitter now. Did place last campaign on a wet track at Cowra so she knows the drill. Probably finishes too hard for the top weight PROMISE BAY. Quinella them. Watch market.

Tip: OUT WRAPPED  @ $6.30

I think there might be something pretty handy about this mare FOURMADEC. She resumes here and did look good in a trial recently at this track. Last campaign raced twice, winning her maiden then running on for 2nd at this level. Has been given a lot of time to mature into a special racehorse and we may just see that this campaign. Looks nicely placed.

Tip: FOURMADEC @ $2.20
