Lismore Tips for Thursday, September 7

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



Race 4:  No.4  KIRRA LASS  ($6.10 with BoomBet)

Ballina trainer, Stephen Lee, has acquired KIRRA LASS as a new stable dweller and first-up after more than 10 months off the scene, can make her presence felt here today. Last start, the Nicconi mare ended her dealings with the Troy O’Neile stable, finishing last of the 11 in the Lightning Hcp over 1000m at Taree. She returned to work for her new stable two weeks ago where she won a barrier trial on her new home track (at Ballina). Sean Cormack steers the ship today where the six-year-old is nicely drawn in gate four. She maps to settle near the speed and with that trial win behind her now, she can figure here. Already a two-time winner first-up, she looks a genuine winning chance here.



Race 3:  No.3  A DEEL OF HUMOUR  ($3.20 with Ladbrokes)

Gold Coast visitor, A DEEL OF HUMOUR, took a while to warm up this preparation but looks ready to bring up her first win in more than nine months today. Last start, the Dundeel mare made it back-to-back runner-up cheques when she beat all but one home Tygalgah Cup over 2020m at Murwillumbah. She was no match for Savy Lad that day but meets him 3.5kgs better here. Anthony Allen sticks with her for this assignment and with a trouble-free run today, she can turn the tables on the pre-post favourite here.



Race 6:  No.7  MILINGIMBI  ($10 with bet365)

The Brett Cavanough-trained MILINGIMBI has been off the boil of late but down in weight, back in distance and a new rider could see her bounce back in this contest. Last start, the Stratum Star mare showed some improvement from a poor run at Coffs Harbour when she finished fourth in a BM58 Hcp over 1300m at Ballina. After trying to lead all the way at Coffs Harbour, she took a sit behind the pace this time and finished off well, beaten less than a length on the line. Sean Cormack takes the reins here and from barrier eight, she maps to settle near mid-field with cover. Her only look at the Lismore track was four starts back (when she was second-up) and that resulted in a victory over 1310m. She is up in grade today but will be at her peak after five runs this time in and if she can settle quickly, she lay down a serious challenge in the run home. She looks well worth an each-way ticket here.
