Form analyst, RIC CHAPMAN, previews the race meeting this afternoon at Tamworth, with horse racing tips and analysis for 3 selected races. Good luck, punters!
Interesting race here. There is probably about 4 of them here with equal talent so luck in running and the draws are the compelling variables here. I’ve settled upon the big gangly LUCKY CRUMPET because I think he might have a bit of staying talent. Will need to settle off the speed here and find cover, which is an ask from this wide draw. Last start over 1500m, he came with long loping strides out wide, late, to grab 2nd spot in a very similar race. Third that day was a rival again today in KIRAMEKI. It had a great run and Lucky Crumpet ran past it late. Quinella them up.
Here’s a fascinating race. Plenty of money overnight for NICE WATER who resumes here. last start was 5th at the provincials. And while I suspect that money is telling us something, I kinda like the lightly raced filly LOVE MARILYN to win this one. She has speed and I think exiting from gate 8 here she can charge and perhaps either find the front on her own, or sit on the outside of maybe MACKINAW who has speed and is 2nd up. Either way, I suspect she is stronger than big Mack and runs away from him, establishing a lead that perhaps Nice Water cannot bridge. Quinella them also.
Tip: LOVE MARILYN @ $6.50
There a few here who look impressive but will find this step up in class too much for them. One who should go well, however, is the locally trained MR SEVERINO. He is progressive, is in form, is also a last start winner in slightly easier company and is on home soil here. Big show.
Tip: MR SEVERINO @ $3.00
