Kilmore Tips 30/3/2023
BEST BET 🏆 (WIN)
Race 1 No. 12 STATESWOMAN- ($2.10)
STATESWOMAN can chalk up the first win of her career when she lines up in the opener at Kilmore. The Mark & Levi Kavanagh-trained galloper has had the three career starts for two minor placings before running 4th at Moonee Valley on February 10. That came over the 1514m and she led before just tiring late. Drop back to the 1200m suits and she should enjoy a bit of a soft time of it up front.
NEXT BEST 🥈 (WIN)
Race 4 No.14 WHISPERING LADY- ($2.50)
Keen on another from the Kavanagh stable in Race 4 and it is WHISPERING LADY that can break through. The three-year-old shows a bit of promise and resumed with a 4th at Sandown behind Chico Sonado on March 15 over the 1300m. She was thrown into the deep end at this stage of her last preparation, taking on some of the best of her age group in the Manifold Stakes (1600m) and the Ethereal Stakes (2000m) when a slightly unlucky 6th in the latter of those. Step up to the 1600m suits for this and she should be strong late in the piece.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6 No. 1 TOROPEAK- ($3.80)
TOROPEAK can just about make it back to back wins in Race 6. The Nick Ryan-trained galloper trounced his rivals in a BenchMark 58 at the track and trip on March 10 by four lengths, going 1.2 lengths faster than standard benchmark, which is more than four lengths better than the next best last start figures of any runner. He is capable of running up to that again and Tom Prebble sticks on board. The 3kg claimer is three from seven for the stable, providing a 61% profit on turnover for punters.
BEST VALUE 💰(EACH-WAY)
Race 7 No. 3 PRUDDEN – ($6.50)
I don’t mind PRUDDEN in Race 7 of the day. The four-year-old likes it at Kilmore and claimed his Maiden earlier this preparation before finishing runner-up at BM58 level. Both of those were over the 1200m. At his most recent start he ran on fairly when 6th behind Little Miss Guts in a BM64 at Sandown, prodding the fastest 400m-200m split to go a healthy 5.2 lengths faster than standard. This looks easier and he draws perfectly in barrier 4.
