Melton Harness Tips – May 30
Race 1 – DNR LOGISTICS TROT (1720m) – 4:55pm
A trotting race to kick off proceedings with gate speed from Pink Galahs and Imsettogo. The most likely leader will be IMSETTOGO for trainer Anton Golino and driver Darby McGuigan. The four-year-old mare has won four of her five starts this season. She sprinted home in 28 seconds to repel Teetreetommy last start. The sprint distance should favour the leader so hopefully it is Imsettogo that can find that position. Pink Galahs is a huge danger having won five of 10 career starts along with Success Counts who has won two of his past three starts.
Race 4 – TAB LONG MAY WE PLAY PACE (2240m) – 6:30pm
The open class pacers will see Major Times, Little Peanut and Star Of Memphis compete against one another for the third time this month. Major Times was the winner on May 9 before Little Peanut turned the tables on May 16. I’m not certain on the speed map here with Major Times possessing a lot of gate speed. Little Peanut did surrender the lead when Major Times was victorious so doing so again will give Major Times the advantage. LITTLE PEANUT may make Major Times work harder this time around and his win from the 1 out 3 back position last time was excellent. He should map well from barrier three regardless and Greg Sugars knows the Jess Tubbs-trained five-year-old gelding very well.
Race 7 – ALDEBARAN PARK TROT (2240m) – 8:00pm
McLovin is the $1.04 favourite to conclude the program and will work over to lead and win. SCALLYWAG SAM looks a very strong chance of running second behind McLovin from barrier two following an 8.8m victory in a standing start event last time. The ideal scenario would be Scallywag Sam being able to trail McLovin and from there the pegs will be the best place to be as this top-line trotter makes it back-to-back wins. Due to the field of six, we need Scallywag Sam to finish second in order to collect on the place bet but the $1.90 to do so looks great.
