Goulburn Tips 29/07/2022


Race 2 No. 1 FLYWAY – ($2.45)

FLYWAY can get the job done in Race 2. The Edward Cummings-trained galloper bumped into a smart one at Wyong last time in the form of Regal Pom and was beaten by a hefty margin but had a bit on the rest, while he wasn’t far away at Hawkesbury when runner-up prior to that. The son of Star Turn comes in with the best last start benchmark figures of any runner and gets the blinkers for the first time, while he is another that draws to save ground from the inside. 




Race 1 No. 3 ROVERS PEPPER – ($3.20)

We open up with a Maiden over the 1400m and ROVERS PEPPER looks well placed. The Anabel Neasham-trained galloper heads down from Sydney after running 4th at Canterbury on June 22 and went 2.6 lengths faster than standard that day, which is more than 10 lengths better than the class average for this race. That came on a Heavy track and she didn’t enjoy the cleanest getaway before working into it mid race. This looks easier and she did have excuses at her only other two starts. Jackson Searle rides and the pair draw to save ground from barrier 2.

Race 5 No. 5 REDENTE CHOICE- ($6.50)

This looks to be a suitable assignment for REDENTE CHOICE. The three-year-old has had three runs this time in and and settled back at Hawkesbury on July 17 over the 1300m before being held up as they rounded. He loomed up at the 200m but the slow early tempo counted against and he battled into 3rd placing behind Navajo Peak. Another that comes in with the best last start figures of any runner, the son of Redente doesn’t mind the Heavy and scored on the surface on debut, while he should be strong late in the piece.
