Horse Racing Tips – Tuesday 8th March

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


Interesting race here. I really like the placement of ALBERT THE CAT in this. He is coming off a terrific run when hitting the line hard in the Ctry Champs heat for 7th. Was 16th for home. This is a few lengths inferior and today he presents 3rd upon too. So you just know he is going to strip incredibly fitter. The long straight here will suit his racing style too. The place will be on and he can charge late. Billy Owen rides and he is in form. Lots to like about this horse, even the price. ALQAAB resumes and will find it tough early but should run on too. Might be a big quinella payout.

Here’s a cool race. Two horses who hit the line with a head margin between them last start, while carrying the same weight, clash again here. They are SMUGGLER’S RUN and WILKSHIRE. Both carry the same weight again so how do we separate them? Well, first thing, I suspect they will fight it out this time so there’s your quinella bet right there. Last start was 1000m and Wilkshire was in front of the other bloke when they turned. He stayed in front and edged Smuggler’s out. But this is 215m further and Smuggler’s Run was baulked a couple of times when wanting to make a run in the straight. So on all that, he get’s the prize. Quinella them.

Tip: SMUGGLER’S RUN  @ $3.90

Canberra trainer Matty Dale might have a pretty handy one here in this 3YO DEEPMIND. Today is just his 2nd race start and he looks perfectly placed. Sat just off speed on debut when 3rd in this grade an d made ground late so the extra 215m to day will suit. Is much fitter and wiser now too.
