Kembla Grange Tips for Thursday, October 12

Our form expert provides Kembla Grange tips for today’s horse racing at Kembla Grange Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 6:  No.7  ALOT A LIP  ($3.10 with BlueBet)

The Waterhouse & Bott-trained ALOT A LIP has impressed after just two starts and looks the testing material in this event. Last start, the Exceed And Excel filly destroyed her rivals when she broke through for her maiden win on the Beaumont track at Newcastle. Sent out a white-hot $1.40 favourite, she landed in front from barrier rise and never looked like being passed from that point on. Regan Bayliss asked her for a final effort as they straightened and she responded, doing a ‘road runner’ and leaving the rest in a cloud of dust as she crossed the line two lengths clear of the pack. This will be a little harder but from what she has shown to date, a forward showing here again looks on the cards. Bayliss sticks with her and from an ideal draw (gate 3), she should prove hard to beat today.



Race 3:  No.5  UNCLE HARRY  ($4.80 with Bet Right)

The Paul Perry-trained UNCLE HARRY is third-up today and making his track debut, looks a solid chance of going back-to-back here. Last start, the Irish-sired galloper made a big improvement from his first-up effort when he broke through for his first win in a 1400m Maiden at Scone with Jett Stanley in the saddle. He did it in style as he was never on the track, settling three-deep without cover but still had too many guns for them in the end. Stanley sticks with him today and after his claim, the three-year-old carries 3kgs less than that last start glory. Drawn nicely in gate five, he looks a real player here and is capable of giving this a real shake.




Race 7:  No.5  HEADSTOCK  ($5 with bet365)

The locally-trained HEADSTOCK is in great touch this time in and ticks enough boxes here to looks more attractive than the race favourite today. Last start, the Headwater gelding made it a hat-trick of top-three finishes when he took home third prize in a BM64 Hcp, here over 1200m. He had too ground to make up that da after settling near last, then fanning very wide on the turn. He did well to finish within a length of the first two across the line. Brock Ryan returns today for his third ride on the four-year-old and after four starts this campaign, he should be at his peak today. Race favourite, (Ritzytwenties) has drawn very wide and not raced since May this year and will need a lot going his way to measure up in this contest. We’ll run with the local talent today.
