Albion Park Harness Tips July 5 - best bets for Albion Park on Friday night

  • 4 selections for tonight's Albion Park harness meeting

Albion Park hosts a 10-race card on Friday night and here are my best bets for the meeting.

Race 3 - SKY RACING CLAIMING PACE (1660m) – 6:23pm AEST

The Claiming Pace will see a field of nine runners compete over the 1660m. Farrahfowler has the inside barrier and she comes out of a claimer where they rated 1:52.6. The mile rate was too quick for the 6YO mare who paced a personal 1:54.0 mile rate. She ran home in 56.3 seconds and looks a strong chance against this opposition. 

Crowning Glory is the most likely leader and his form reads well. One Wise Man will enjoy the pegs and is right in this, while Our Mels Dream was runner up behind One Wise Man last time. 


Smooth Sailor was impressive when beaten a head last start over the 1660m. He sprinted his last half in 54.9 seconds after racing 1 out 4 back. He will map closer tonight for trainer-driver Dennis Picker who loves the Albion Park circuit. 

Two starts ago Smooth Sailor won in 1:54.6 for the 2138m after racing outside of the leader and winning by 14.1m. He should be hard to beat in this race. 

Race 6 - MR FEELGOOD @ EGMONT PARK STUD PACE (2138m) – 7:52pm AEST

I am really looking forward to the battle between Letsgotothehop and Random Task. I am siding with barrier draw advantage and that lies with the Tim Butt-trained Letsgotothehop. He was a winner of a NR 70-82 last time when trailing the leader and holding out Smooth Sailor in 1:53.3. Tonight’s race is an NR 68-74 which is a class drop for Letsgotothehop. 

Random Task has won his last two starts at Redcliffe and Albion Park. He was excellent last time out and should run well.  


Trainer-driver Dennis Picker looks to have another strong contender for tonight’s meeting and this time it is 3YO filly Ally Rogan. She has had to sprint home quickly recently with last halves paced in 55.4 and 56.3. This 3YO event looks more suitable for Ally Rogan and she should go close.

Chanceless Century is a definite danger from barrier two. He will be looking for Our Masquerade to hand up early. First starter Montana Lad must be respected from the Darrel Graham stable.
