Tauranga

Good morning. Some nice races today with a few well placed runners. I haven’t been able to find any ‘Good Confidence’ bets of 3/5 or better, but a handful of eachway chances.

Bet of the Day Race 5 7.Orleans Belle $3.60 FF 2nd off a tough run- should win at least a maiden based on that.

Value Bet of the day Race 1 4.Arjay’s Flight $10 FF

]Race 1

Confidence:2/5 4th with a late finish

4.Arjay’s Flight  in his trial jumped near the front from a wide draw but snagged back to the rear. But looked good coming home hard to win it beating Kirriconi who ran a strong second next up. On debut he jumped well, slotted in 3 back inner, but couldn’t get clear racing room in the straight. Drawn to land in the first four on a moderate tempo and is a nice eachway chance. RP $6, $10 in from $17 FF

Race 2

Confidence: 2/5

13.Casino Princess looked good in her recent trial when back and made up very good ground late for third with a nice action. Trained by Cliff Goss who seems to have a knack of training winners like Gold Watch. RP $5, $6 FF 6th fair run.

Race 3

The speed map shows a moderate tempo suiting runners in the first half of the race.

Confidence: 2/5

1.Logan’s Logic  has been giving every indication he needs 200m or more in his last two runs. Gets a nice draw and should land midfield and be a solid eachway chance from there. RP $4, $4.80 FF 1st $5.60 with a text book ride.

Race 5

Confidence: 2/5

7.Orleans Belle closed off very strongly last start for second in a strong speed rating. So up to 1400m looks ideal third up. She seesm more comfortable right handed too. RP $3.40, $3.60 FF

Race 7

Confidence:2/5

2.Duneagle  ran a good race last start second up at Otaki when leading, taken on 700m out and was run down by a good horse. He lugged out on the turn and wasn’t as comfortable as he is when racing right handed. So third up, back right handed, from the ace draw, he should get a nice sit near the speed and with 4kgs off, looks nicely placed. RP $4, $$4.50 FF

Race 8

Confidence: 2/5 Had its chance.

3.Butterfield  has won here and ran a top 2nd in fast time at New Plymouth. Trialed up very well off a wide run closing hard late. Drawn to get a good trip and is a nice eachway chance at double figures. RP $6, $12 FF
