Murwillumbah Tips for Tuesday, October 10

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



Race 3:  No.10  SPARKLE MOTION  ($2.40 with bet365)

Third-up today, the Matt Dunn-trained SPARKLE MOTION looks ready to hit top gear and ring-up his second career win. Last start, the Pierro gelding showed a ton of improvement when he finished just behind the placegetters in a Class 1 over 1420m at Grafton. He stepped-up in distance that day and sitting near the speed, his condition gave out which saw him miss the podium finish. Ben Looker roe the winner of that race and ironically has taken the ride on this three-year-old for today’s assignment. The galloper won third-up last preparation and from gate three today, looks a super chance of making that happen again.



Race 7:  No.10  CENTRE BOUNCE  ($3.30 with Picklebet)

We’re shooting for the hat-trick here with the Matt Dunn stable as CENTRE BOUNCE returns from a metropolitan stint, looking set for a big effort here. The Star Turn mare came off a couple of Hwy Hcp runs at Randwick before her last start where she took on a Class 2 field at Ipswich. That day, Ash Morgan was the pilot and after settling mid-field, the four-year-old ran home strongly to grab third prize in the end. We had her stablemate (Bandasha) on top here until he was scratched (a short time ago) but now, this just paves the way for the mare to bring home the bacon for the stable. His only start on this track resulted in a (Maiden) win and now he returns to home soil in search of remaining unbeaten here. Matty McGuren has the reins for this assignment and at her peak today, she will take beating.



Race 6:  No.7  BERTINELLI  ($4.40 with bet365

Matt Dunn saddles-up BERTINELLI here who is in top-shelf form this preparation and looks all set for another stellar performance today. Last start, the Snitzel filly came off consecutive runner-up finishes when she went one better and finally broke through for her maiden win over 1210m at Lismore. She did it tough that day, parked outside the leader without cover but on straightening, took control and just one slap of the whip later, put two lengths on them and crossed the line almost three lengths ahead, eased near the post. Matty McGuren is legged aboard for his first ride on the three-year-old and a repeat of that last effort should see her hard to beat here.
