Kembla Grange Tips for Saturday, November 25

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



Race 2:  No.2  TRIBECA STAR  ($2.60 with bet365)

The Matt Dunn-trained TRIBECA STAR is high flying with seven-straight podium finishes to date and looks set here for back-to-back wins in this contest. Last start, the Star Turn gelding jumped from gate 11 (of 12) and settled mid-field before overpowering them in the run home to collect the major prize in a Hwy Class 3 Hcp over 1200m at Rosehill. Nash Rawiller was aboard that day and sticks with the four-year-old for this assignment. He gets the gun-run from gate one here and maps to be parked just behind the speed on settling. At his peak after three runs back, the step-up to 1400m looks ideal here and he will take beating.


Race 9:  No.5  HEADWALL  ($4.80 with Bet Right)

The Matt Smith-trained HEADWALL ticks all the boxes here and looks set for a first-up win in this contest. Last start, the Dream Ahead gelding ended a four-start campaign by finishing a close-up third in a BM78 Hcp over 1000m at Eagle Farm. That was back in April this year but he has trialled twice recently, winning the last of those at the Rosehill track. Blake Spriggs was aboard for that trial win and from five race-rides, has steered the five-year-old to all three career wins to date. He won his only appearance on this track and is already a winner when first-up. Ideally drawn in gate four, he should prove hard to hold out in this event.



Race 3:  No.6  PLUNDERING  ($6.50 with Unibet)

Annabel Neasham saddles-up PLUNDERING here who is second-up and ticks enough boxes to get interested in his chances of winning this event. Last start, the Shooting To Win gelding was fresh off a 15-week spell when he finished just behind the placegetters in a BM78 over 1200m at Rosehill with Chad Schofield aboard. He came wide on the turn and was beaten less than two lengths that day. Schofield has the reins again and with a little luck in running, he can cross and find a sit with cover from gate ten. Unbeaten in two previous second-up runs, he looks in the mix here.
