Dubbo and Taree Tips August 16 - best bets for NSW racing on Friday

Aaron Hamilton in Free Tips 16 Aug 2019
  • Confidence rating: 90% both
  • Suggested stake: 2 units to Win on each selection

Friday racing in NSW comes from Dubbo on a Good 4 and Taree on a slightly firmer Good 3.

Here are my best bets for Dubbo and Taree on Friday: 

DUBBO:

Race 5 - 3:10PM DUBBO CITY TOYOTA DUBBO GOLD CUP PRELUDE (1410 METRES)
I can’t believe Ibini is the $1.90 favourite while SMOODGE is a $4.20 chance. The pair met on July 6 when Smoodge was coming off a four-week break, and he was caught three deep without cover for the trip yet still overhauled Ibini who sat outside the leader. That was at level weights and Smoodge now carries 1.5kg less than Ibini. He went to Rosehill and finished four lengths from Pat’s Nipper over 1500m, and the extra trip may not have suited while he also hung in late. He then hung in during a recent barrier trial and the offside bubble cheeker now goes on for the first time to try and keep him straight. Barrier 8 looks tricky but three of these have no early speed so Smoodge should be able to slot in around 4th or 5th and get a nice trail throughout.  

TAREE:

Race 6 - 3:35PM TAREE VOLKSWAGEN CLASS 2 HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
Looks a race in two with Myboycolly and STORM ATTACK bringing the strongest form lines, and I’m keen to stick with the latter. Myboycolly’s two poor performances at Taree and the fact he drops back from 1570m to 1400m are concerns and he is too short at $2.30. Storm Attack was first-up over 1300m at this track and was caught three deep without cover for the trip yet battled gamely for 2nd. Last campaign, he improved significantly second-up and similar improvement here makes his hard to beat. Also, the horse that beat him last start, Jamaican Dream, subsequently won and franked the form. This is the first time he has raced with a month between runs, and that’s the only concern.
